Representation 3924 on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) by Annabel Roberts

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Brantham , SS0185 - Land south of Ipswich Road, Brantham
Representation: Highways- impact on function of A137 with development at Industrial Site/nearby villages. Safety: for existing residents pulling onto A137; children crossing road to school bus; residents crossing road to access local amenities; poor sightline for any access points and the excess speed of existing traffic.
Infrastructure- no footpath, pedestrian crossing, doctor or post office. Drain/sewer capacity, poor wider transport network, traffic congestion under railway bridge at peak times.
Historic part of Brantham- church, graveyard, old school house, hedgerows and access to the river/AONB. Sense of place and tranquility as you enter Church Lane lost with the scale of development proposed.
Complies with the duty to Co-operate?No

Original submission

Highways - increased congestion, noise, pollution & impact on function of A137 with the development at Industrial Site and nearby villages. Safety, for existing residents pulling out onto A137 with 50/100 cars needing access on the opposite side of the same highwat. Safety, for children crossing the road to the school buses. Safety, for residents crossing the road to access local shops, dog walks, buses, churches and the river. Safety, as the sightline for a new access point for cars to pull out onto the highway given the blind corner, the speed of the traffic (over 30mph speed limit) and existing houses/laybys.
Infrastructure - impact on the function of the A137, no footpath on that side of the road or indeed connecting to the field area - nearest footpath is a school road requiring a dangerous crossing at a blind corner, no pedestrian crossings, doctor capacity, school capacity, drain and sewer capacity, poor wider transport network, traffic congestion into Ipswich and under the railway bridge at peak times of day.
Historic part of Brantham with the Church, graveyard, old school house, hedgerows and access to the river/AONB. The sense of place and tranquility as you enter Church Lane would be lost with the scale of a development proposed on this site.
