Representation 4129 on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) by Mr John Bellwood

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - INFRASTRUCTURE, Healthy Communities
Representation: Whilst I agree with the policies outlined here, I am concerned that any existing individual communities should not lose their community identity and cohesion as a result of 'creeping coalescence 'arising from the inappropriate location of new developments.

I consider greater attention needs to be given to avoiding the 'swamping' of existing communities with excessive developments. I suggest that more emphasis is given to ensuring that any necessary developments are spread more evenly over the District as a whole, rather than being concentrated in particular communities
Complies with the duty to Co-operate?Yes
