Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is developing plans for new visitor facilities at Spurn National Nature Reserve.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust has recently launched a public consultation on proposals for new visitor facilities at Spurn National Nature Reserve. Plans include proposals for a new visitor centre located at the northern end of the site; it will include a classroom, café, shop and parking facilities. In addition, the Trust has secured grant funding for a vehicle which will be used to run tours of the site following the loss of the road after the storms of 2013.
Following much research, consultation and study into the building requirements and needs of the area, the Trust is refining the design of the visitor facilities to ensure that the wildlife and environment of Spurn is enhanced and that they are resilient to the local environmental conditions and also meet the needs of visitors and the local community.
Yorkshire Wildlife Trust is very keen to gather feedback about the new facilities at this early stage and is encouraging anyone with suggestions, questions or comments to contact them either by calling 01904 659570, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The date for the next consultation event will be announced once the Trust has developed a design that incorporates the landscape design and the necessary mitigation.
Chief Executive of Yorkshire Wildlife Trust Dr Rob Stoneman said; ‘If you are a regular visitor to Spurn NNR then you will know that the last few months have been a period of significant landscape change. As a result Yorkshire Wildlife Trust will be making a number of alterations to safeguard the wildlife interest of Spurn, whilst also improving access, safety and facilities. This will ensure wildlife thrives and will also enable local people and visitors to continue to enjoy this special place.’
The Trust held a design competition, where six different design teams were invited to submit proposals for what the visitor centre would look like, how it would be built and where it should go. Following on from this a design from Salt Architects was chosen.
Dr Stoneman continued: ‘We remain in the very early stages of this consultation process to take the design forward, meeting with local residents and gathering thoughts, options and fresh ideas.’
