Representation 5347 on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) by Mrs Louise Baldry

Support / Object: SUPPORT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - ECONOMY, Economic Needs, Q35
Representation: Sproughton Sugar Beet site should reallocate to Country Park/nature reserve/public open space, reversing disgraceful mismanagement/neglect of River Gipping from Ipswich Central to A14. What should be a beautiful, semi-natural asset to Ipswich and key element in enticing green business to the area/uplifting the spirits of local residents, is instead a litter strewn channel along which/into which 'anything goes'. With this allocation must come the resources to police the river/penalise inappropriate use, with resources to create semi-natural habitat. This site alone already more land than projected employment land requirement, with total oversupply of 187 hectares (identified need is 12.3 hectares).
