Professor Kevin Hiscock, Head of the School of Environmental Sciences at the UEA, has given the Generation Park Norwich project his full support, and emphasised its significance to the School of Environmental Sciences.
Professor Hiscock comments, "The submission of the Generation Park Norwich planning application is an important occasion for the School of Environmental Sciences. The School has long been a centre of international research excellence in climate science, carbon budgets, environmental pollution, and integrated sustainability and it is fitting that the idea originated here. We have continued to support and help develop the original concept and are excited at the possibility of it happening. It would be an exemplar of real-world action in Norwich in the crucial areas of lower carbon and secure energy, environmental leadership, and shifting to a more sustainable balance between human activity and the environment. Should the application be successful, we shall continue to support the realisation of the whole scheme and look forward to playing our substantial part in the research, training and awareness-raising activities on Generation Park Norwich. We shall also, together with the rest of our community in Norwich, relish enjoying what would be a major asset and amenity for the city."
