Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0573 - Land south of Church Road,
COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)
There are a number of Grade II listed buildings in close proximity to the site being
considered for allocation in Worlingworth, these include The Grange, The Swan and
The Ivies. The presence of these heritage assets and their settings should therefore
be considered carefully as part of the site allocation process.
OBJECT Mrs Aileen Mary Kelly
This is another example of the loss of greenfield land across the country with the destruction of local flora & fauna, a huge loss overall. Drainage & disposal of sewage is an important consideration as it is already under strain. Run off of water is a problem as some dwellings in the vicinity i.e. gardens are subject to flooding. Access to the proposed site could be under strain as the road itself is narrow and already busy. Worlingworth has few amenities and there is no regular bus service. There is already a fair bit of development going on in the village.
SUPPORT Durrants Ltd (Mr Christopher Hobson) represented by Durrants Ltd (Mr Christopher Hobson)
Support the Council's analysis and recommendation. The Client is also committed and willing to deliver immediately.
OBJECT Mrs L Bowman
The country side through the village is getting nearly next to none. This greenfield land you could walk round and has been used for grazing cows an hay production. Sewers and drainage has been a very big issue as the Sewer plant cannot cope. Also the wildlife will be affected in a big way as we have various types of wildlife living in trees and bushes and hedgerows, also we have foxes bats owls rabbits hares hedgehogs and many different species of birds will be greatly affected. There are allotments and chickens down the side of this field. The volume of traffic and disruption is going to be a nightmare. I strongly oppose of the errection of 15 houses as it will turn into 30 and so on. Shop/post office and garage have closed.
OBJECT Mrs Catherine Wells
The development of this site for housing would be contrary to Local Plan and National Planning Policy. It is unsustainable because: it is outside of the physical limits boundary of the village; the removal of vast quantities of hedging would cause unaccountable damage and an adverse impact upon the local environment and wildlife population including protected bat species; the village has few amenities and no public transport; coalescence of the village settlement boundaries if development was to go ahead; an increased pressure on drainage and sewerage systems; housing provision in the village is already or will be provided by existing planning permissions in the village.
