Representation 3952 on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) by Valda Marks

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Glemsford
Representation: We had received no notification of this.

In the past we have discovered that Babergh Planning Department do not visit the site of planning applications, and pass them without viewing the local impact. Is this the case here again?

Glemsford is full to bursting with vehicles. Too many planning applications have been passed with insufficient parking.
Water and drainage system will not stand more use.
Local school cannot accommodate the estimated new pupils. Doctors surgery is just about coping. This will be intolerable if more residents register.

There is no employment in the village.

Original submission

Hello

We have just been alerted to the local plan identifying 3 areas of farmland which could be used for housing in Glemsford.

We had received no notification of this - and most people we have spoken to in the village did not receive anything either.
Was someone employed to deliver leaflets? If so they should not be paid as they did not undertake the task.

Glemsford is full to bursting with vehicles - lorries and buses find it virtually impossible to drive through the village due to vehicles parked on the roads everywhere. Too many planning applications have been passed with insufficient parking.

The local water and drainage system is constantly breaking down and will not stand more use and overloading.

The local school cannot accommodate the estimated new pupils, many will have to seek education outside of the village.

The local doctors surgery is just about coping with locum doctors, it is extremely difficult to gain an appointment and this will become intolerable if more residents register.

There is no employment in the village for new residents, so all will have cars and further clog up the roads on their way to work.

I look forward to receiving your responses to my queries above.

Regards

Mrs Valda Marks
