Comments:The river is designated as the River Orwell County Wildlife Site (CWS), the designation reflects the river's ornithological interest. It is also known to support other Protected and UK and Suffolk Priority species, as well as forming a buffer to the Stour and Orwell Estuaries Special Protection Area (SPA); the Stour and Orwell Estuaries Ramsar site and the River Orwell Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). It is therefore essential that all potential ecological impacts likely to result from these proposals are fully assessed; mitigated and compensated. The scheme should also secure ecological enhancements in accordance with national planning policy.
