Representation 13142 on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) by Mr Brian West

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Long Melford
Representation: The current infrastructure is at breaking point (doctors, school, traffic and parking) and 200+ homes in development will create an intolerable strain.

Much of the housing is too expensive and unsuitable for local needs. Expensive houses only benefit the developers.

Long Melford is a unique and historic village and a tourist attraction. Tourism is the lifeblood of the village for the shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs. Increasing traffic and parking problems will turn people away.

Further development must be in keeping in size/character and supported by infrastructure improvements.
