Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Brantham , SS0185 - Land south of Ipswich Road, Brantham
Representation: A small spread out village with significant development already approved, makes this development unnecessary and unsustainable.

Traffic through the village is trapped by the railway bridge by the Brantham Bull pub and the gates/underpass at Manningtree - Adding the cars of all the planned developments is not sustainable - due to congestion, pollution, safety and quality of life

This old part of Brantham provides access to walkers and horse riders access to the Stour river/estuary which is part of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Original submission

Relatively small but spread out village with significant development already approved in the old industrial area making this development unnecessary and unsustainable

Traffic through the village is trapped by the railway bridge by the Brantham Bull pub and the gates/underpass at Manningtree - It can take several minutes for me to get out of my drive due to traffic congestion especially when turning right - in a single car - during peak times. At non peak times the traffic speeds and bends in the road can often lead to delay also. Adding the cars of all the planned developments is not sustainable - due to congestion, pollution, safety and quality of life

This old part of Brantham provides access to walkers and horse riders access to the Stour river/estuary which is part of the Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
