Spurn Bird Observatory

A Message from the Chairman RE YWT visitor centre

11 January 2016

As you may be aware the YWT have now submitted their planning application to the ERYCC to build a new visitors centre in triangle field. This is despite the committee lobbying on behalf of the local birding community over the last 12 months to try and convince the Trust to change the location. Sadly this was not possible so as previously stated and advised to Friends of Spurn in December 2014 we as Spurn Bird Observatory Trust Ltd committee are left with no choice but to strongly object to the application.

Over 80% of our members voted in favour of this action so it is our intention to use the services of a professional organisation that specialises in this work to give us the best possible chance of success. Can I kindly encourage you to visit the link below to obtain further information about the plans and make a formal objection yourself if you consider it appropriate.

The planning details are as below together with a link to the ERYCC website.

15/03947/PLF | Erection of a new Visitor Centre, construction of new car park and associated landscaping work and erection of a 23.0m high radar shipping scanner for Associated British Ports | Land South East Of The Dovecote Spurn Road Kilnsea East Riding Of Yorkshire HU12 0UH

Time is very limited with this application so can I kindly encourage you to visit the link site as soon as possible.

Kind Regards


Rob Adams – Chairman and Treasurer of Spurn Bird Observatory Trust Ltd
