Representation: Planning Ref: SS0286, SS0257 & SS0226
My objection is to the sheer number of houses planned for development in Glemsford.
Getting a doctors appointment is difficult now let alone with the extra homes.
The local sewage works are already at breaking point.
The roads into and in the village are crumbling now.
Park lane and Hobbs lane are continually being patched due to the heavy vehicles that are using this lane.
Our local school is running at 100% capacity.
I'm not against development but just the sheer numbers being suggested.
Complies with the duty to Co-operate?Yes

Original submission

My objections relate to the following sites, in particular the Kings Rd/Park Lane (SS0286) site:
* South of Kings Rd/West of Park Lane - Planning Ref: SS0286
* East of Brook St/Chequers Lane - Planning Ref: SS0257
* South East of George Lane/South of Flax Lane - Planning Ref: SS0226

My objection is to the sheer number of houses planned for development in Glemsford.

Getting a doctors appointment is difficult now, let alone with the extra homes.

The local sewage works are already at breaking point. There are already houses built a year ago that have still yet to be connected to the main sewage system.

The roads into and in the village are crumbling now. Park lane and Hobbs lane are continually being patched due to the heavy vehicles that are using this lane.
Also on the matter of roads throughout the village the roads are heavily parked.
How emergency vehicles get through beggars belief sometimes.

Our local school is running at 100% capacity. So any new families moving into the village would find it extremely difficult to find school places in this area.

I'm also concerned with the extra policing required to look after such a large development.
They are already stretched to there maximum capacity and this could only end up causing more anti social behaviour or worse.
There is no facilities for teenagers in the village so it is just a disaster waiting to happen.

I'm not against development but just the sheer number of houses being suggested.
