COMMENT Great Blakenham Parish Council (Ms Janet Gobey) represented by Great Blakenham Parish Council (Ms Janet Gobey)

Summary:

We insist that public safety whilst passing through the parish must be a priority. Suffolk Constabulary consider parts of the village as high-risk areas for speeding, yet we see infrequent policing. Any Local Plan needs to consider speed management.
Each individual development in Great Blakenham, Claydon and Barham adds to the problems being experienced by each of the three villages. This is also true, to a slightly lesser extent, for developments in Bramford and Needham Market and it is vital that Planning look at the area as a whole, not as individual villages, and when considering individual areas for development, consider the cumulative effect on the area as a whole.

Representation ID: 11444

COMMENT Greenways Countryside Project Partnership (Mr. James Baker)

Summary:

Green infrastructure provision is vitally important to be delivered alongside population growth. New infrastructure needs to be significant in size, well managed (preferably public ownership to guarantee this), include valuable habitats and/or create or improve habitats to maximise biodiversity, and link with other semi-natural space, strengthening the ecological network. Most obvious examples include space at former sugar beet factory; a strategic extension to Chantry Park, linking to the River Gipping corridor; and protection, enlargement and enhancement of existing Belstead Brook Park. A strategic open space in Wherstead between the A14, A137 and the estuary should still be an important ambiton, to help focus recreational pressure away from the protected estuaries and intercepting potential journeys to coastal and more vulnerable destinations.

Representation ID: 10658

COMMENT Aldham Parish Council (Mr Jonathan Ralph)

Summary:

Aldham and Elmsett are both served by a network of small rural roads and lanes. The road most widely used (and the one with the widest carriageway) is the stretch between Hadleigh and Elmsett via The Street (C726) in Aldham, leading into Hadleigh Road in Elmsett. Concerns include:
In places it is impossible for two cars to pass side-by-side.
There are already difficulties at pinch points in the village, will increase if Draft Plan projections are realised. No evidence of any structured review to ensure roads can cope.
Road surface is breaking up.

The existing Anglian Water mains have been identified as inadequate for existing usage. There seems to be no mechanism for co-ordinated liaison and review with the various service providers to evaluate the impact on road traffic, water supplies, etc..

Representation ID: 9759

COMMENT Miss R P Baillon

Summary:

Mainly answered in Q64. Most of the key infrastructure issues have been caused by over-development with little or no thought to amenities and infrastructure.
* Health centre/GP surgery which is currently inadequate.
* Education. Local people can no longer find places for their children in the senior classes of the Primary School in Debenham. Debenham children should have priority.
* Transport. Currently, the traffic through the village is dreadful. Vehicles are breaking the speed limit and heavy goods vehicles are coming through the village when they should be diverted. Once outside the village, they cannot remain within the central road markings and therefore break up the verges. Diversions should be in place.
* Parking. Totally inadequate.
* Public transport.
* Flood risk management.

The issue of rural roads needs to be addressed more thoroughly. Crossing the road has become hazardous. Children set down by school buses have to cross a road where, at peak times, there will be a car every 3 seconds. This approach to growth is creating a car driven nightmare.

COMMENT Botesdale & Rickinghall CAP Group (Mr. William Sargeant)

Summary:

It seems likely that the issues encountered within the rural community of Rickinghall and Botesdale are representative of similar communities in Mid Suffolk. Strategically, the roads and highways network have not been adequately maintained, and need significant improvement to support the current demand and the increased use envisaged by the proposed housing developments. The standard utility services of telephone, electricity, water, sewage and drainage are ageing and require significant investment to maintain and replace.

COMMENT Freston Parish Council (Ms Elizabeth Aldous)

Summary:

We require adequate roads that are safe with proportionate speed limits. Because of safety issues at Freston x-roads that were identified in the Planning Inspectors report in 2006 (File Ref: APP/D3505/V/05/1185675 para 124) Freston Parish Council commissioned a report from the internationally renowned Ove Arup and Partners Ltd. This states that the preferred option is a roundabout. . Due to large agricultural machinery that now come into Freston there needs to be a larger roundabout than was in the report.

Freston crossroads is an unsafe junction and needs improving as a matter of urgency.

COMMENT Little Waldingfield Parish Council (Mr Andy Sheppard)

Summary:

In regards to Little Waldingfield, LWPC believes that:
Priorities for the future should include improvements to the sewerage system, increased provision of public transport to/from the village and that there should be limitations placed on the volume, size and weight of heavy traffic traveling through the narrow streets of the village.

In regards to the Sudbury Area, LWPC believes that:
A bypass must be a priority to relieve traffic congestion and therefore improve traffic flow through the town centre.

COMMENT Fressingfield Parish Council (Mr Alexander Day)

Summary:

Quite simply - all of them listed under question 64. A vibrant community cannot function adequately should the infrastructure lag behind the community growth

(Not surprisingly the Parish Council drew attention to highways, schools, healthcare, public transport, flooding and surface water management, utilities (Broadband) and to a lesser extent local amenities. One area of concern not addressed is the approach taken to protection and security, notably policing and the fire service and, with the growth of the population in certain areas of the county, greater communication and a joined up approach to these services is essential.)

OBJECT Wetherden Parish COuncil (Mrs Sonia Jewers)

Summary:

Infrastructure should be considered in conjunction with and as part of an integrated planning policy which can only be thoroughly considered locally. Infrastructure cannot be considered as a separate issue once development has been agreed. It must be ensured that services and infrastructure is sufficient for all the proposed developments in the locality.

COMMENT Mr Richard Mayes

Summary:

For my local community roads. For Babergh and Mid Suffolk generally improvements to the railway to and from Cambridge would open open up greater employment opportunities. The council should whole heartedly support the East-West Rail Link. The current rail links cross country from Ipswich are laughable.

SUPPORT Mr Alan Scott

Summary:

In my view, a key infrastructure issue is that of broadband and telephone communications. I live in a village with very poor broadband service and low mobile coverage. As arrogant organisations ( utility companies, HMRC, DWP and apparently local authorities) move towards a "digital by default" system those of us outside major conurbations are handicapped due to the poor service. This has a major impact on the ability of people to conduct their lives and businesses.

COMMENT Woolverstone Parish Council (Mr Simon Pearce)

Summary:

Freston crossroads are unsafe. The Ganges development was supposed to bring improvements. It is of great concern that the infrastructure improvements are not keeping pace with housing developments.

Roundabout at Wherstead is over capacity in the morning peak period. Ipswich High School for Girls wants to increase numbers putting even more pressure on this junction.

Two coaches/lorries/tractors can't pass each other on the B1456, and footpaths are dangerous in places. Increasing traffic will increase noise nuisance, damage to buildings close and see a deterioration of quality of living.

Unstable electricity supply and no gas supply.

An increase in population will put a strain on the two doctor's surgeries on the Shotley Peninsula.

Summary:

If, as we are supposed to be, a democratic country, with democracy at all levels, including local government, ALL future development must take into account the effect on local infrastructure, no development being allowed to proceed unless the developer includes road improvements, green recreational areas etc. and the local authority ensures that adequate support facilities, (schools, medical facilities, retail outlets etc) are in place on completion of the development.
