Worrying development plans for Lavernock area

It was with some alarm that I became aware of VoG council possible development plans concerned with land between Cosmeston and the Lavernock coast. The Vale Council have published some Local Deveopment Plan Proposals, included in which is the possibility of building 450 houses on land which stretches from Lavernock Road right out to the coast path, immediately south of the Lavernock Park and Lower Cosmeston Farm estates, and includes the 'green lane' and associated hedgerows and adjacent fields which run from just opposite Cosmeston up to the coast path, an excellent area for migrant passerines. Here is link to an article in the Penarth Times http://tinyurl.com/8526nsa . If you read this, please follow this link to an online petition opposing this proposal - http://www.gopetition.com/petitions/say-no-to-vale-land-development-plan-in-lavernock.html and sign the petition..
Also below is a link to the VoG web site and the associated consultation documents, including a LDP Proposals Map.The area is labelled MG2 (16) at the extreme RH end of the map [it's an 8MB pdf]. This is the link to the page on the VoG site - http://tinyurl.com/7kqvtu3 . On top of this there is also a proposal for further housing on the right of Lavernock Road about halfway between Cosmeston and the turning for Sully Bay/CaptainsWife and Sully Island.

A substantial and very well argued submission has been prepared against this proposal by a local resident, and also by two councillors including the one for Penarth. Incredibly it seems that no-one from the LDP team has visited the site as all the scorings are completely wrong - e.g it is stated that it is a brownfield site! [which contains a farm, house stables and paddocks, arable fields etc].
