'I object to Southwark Council's planning application for Area B Honor Oak Nature Corridor 17/AP/0671'. This will change the nature of the open space, reduce grassland for low nesting birds and reduce the diversity of insect life which in turn reduces the diversity of bird life. I visit family in Comerford Road regularly so am familiar with the area and can see the need not to create more sanitised open space. My family monitor and photograph wildlife, there is a range of butterfly and insect life which will lose the habitat it needs.

Yet another head in the sand application from the Council. Where are you going to bury the dead when you have taken this green space? Peckham Rye? Burgess Park? Dulwich Park? Why take this open space when you know you are just delaying the inevitable outcome which is no more urban burials. A gutless approach and a great disservice to the general public.

I object to Southwark councils planning application for area B Honor oak nature corridor 17/AP/0671. The reason I do is because we need wild green spaces to enjoy, relax and get away from the city within our neighbourhood. It's home to animals and a refuge for us after busy week.

I object to Southwark Council's planning application for Area B Honor Oak Nature Corridor 17/AP/0671. This is a rare peaceful nature space bordering southwark and lewisham that encourage growth of wild flora and fauna, and should be develop for the 'living' residents in the area, especially young children in mind. It be a waste of opportunity to use it as burial site. Once it's become burial site, it's very difficult and costly to change its use in the future.

From the correspondence and literature I've seen, Southwark Council's approach to the issue of maintaining existing burial grounds, providing for new ones and the treatment of wild / semi-wild open space is both short-term and undemocratic. A more considered and inclusive approach is urgently needed.

When will someone realise that burials take up useful land and the conversion of this site for burials is a short term fix. Perhaps a statement as to how long before all the new plots will be occupied would bring some focus to the matter. If we must have burials then the plots should be prohibitively expensive as they will be occupied for 75-100 years and whilst we have increasing numbers of dead people we do not have more land!

I object to Southwark Council's planning application for Area B Honor Oak Nature Corridor 17/AP/0671. Area B should be declared a Nature Reserve as part of the Honor Oak Nature Corridor because: - It is Metropolitan Open Land in a Grade II SINC, home to hedgehogs, owls, bats, reptiles, butterflies, bees and many other rare and common species of wildlife - This is rare inner city nature land never used for burial - Burial will lock up the use of this nature space forever, preventing any other public use - 1,022 burial plots with rows of headstones on concrete plinths will destroy three acres of Honor Oak Nature Corridor, for just a few years of burial - In your 2016 Consultation, 86% opposed any burial on this
