Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0191 - Land west of London Road (A1214) and east of Hadleigh Road

Representation ID: 13256

COMMENT Sproughton Parish Council (Mrs Susan Frankis)

Summary:

Site partially appropriate for development
Some of the site (specifically, in the south-east corner / adjacent to the existing settlement on London Road) may be appropriate for development, subject to the development of an appropriate scheme, the considerations already identified (highways, cordon sanitare and A14 noise, impact upon landscape, townscape and heritage assets, and biodiversity impact upon protected species and habitats), and further considerations comprising:
*The setting and the views into and from Chantry Vale, which are almost unique unique & designated as an SLA. The mix of landscape characteristics is similar to Dedham Vale, and AONB
*Maintaining a green corridor along the route of the River Gipping (i.e. the Gipping Valley)
*Topography of the proposed site and water courses / drainage
*Provision of schools and health services
*The 'creeping coalescence' between Ipswich town and Sproughton village, which would threaten the identity, if not the very existence of, Sproughton village.

SUPPORT Taylor Wimpey represented by Boyer Planning (Mr. James Bailey)

Summary:

(SS0191, SS1024, SS1023) Being promoted as a mixed use development to include a two-form entry primary school. Site is well-connected to Ipswich and partly abuts the settlement boundary for Ipswich. Well connected to Ipswich. We consider that Sproughton and Ipswich Fringe should be given new settlement boundaries to incorporate Land North of the A1071. Site is in a sustainable location with good access to a number of services and facilities, therefore development in this location should be supported in principle.

OBJECT Pinewood Parish Council (Mrs Sandra Peartree)

COMMENT Ipswich Borough Council (

Summary:

We would support the investigation of residential development on this site, although key consideration will need to be given to the impact on the highway network, the provision of sustainable transport measures, walking and cycling provision, good quality urban design on this key approach to Ipswich Borough, strong integration with Chantry Park, affordable housing provision to meet the affordable housing needs of the Ipswich housing market area, and education provision that is safely accessible by all forms of transport and by foot. The site would need to be properly masterplanned along with sites SS1024, SS0299 and SS1026.

OBJECT Suffolk Wildlife Trust (Mr James Meyer)

Summary:

In addition to the above, site SS0191 borders Chantry Park CWS and may support habitats similar to those found on the CWS. Further assessment is therefore required prior to allocation to determine whether development of this site is likely to result in any adverse impact on the CWS.

Representation ID: 11136

COMMENT Peter Warren

Summary:

This site would appear a slightly better option but not for the concentration of development proposed. Landscape, River Gipping, biodiversity and heritage asset issues are similarly replicated here. There still exists a threat to Sproughton's village identity with creeping coalescence and the County Wildlife site must not be impacted by construction process or a finished development. A severe reduction to proposed dwellings would be required to make this site suitable.

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

Site abuts the Grade II Registered Park and Garden (RPAG) of Chantry Park which contains the Grade II listed building The Chantry.

It is not at all clear what the parameters of development at this stage are but any loss
of or harm to the listed buildings within the site boundaries would be strongly
resisted.
Development of these sites would impact upon these heritage assets. Robust
evidence to support their inclusion should be provided and considered as part of the
allocation process along with any potential mitigation measures.
