COMMENT Old Newton Parish Council (Mrs Karen Price)

Yes. This is a key area and a comprehensive approach needs to be developed to provide education at a consistent high quality to create a sound bedrock for a good village community. Our current healthcare provision is adequate but with the expected explosion of development in our neighbouring villages such as Mendlesham, Bacton and Haughley this needs to be addressed.

Representation ID: 11145

OBJECT Rattlesden Parish Council (Mr Doug Reed)

Summary:

The Council does not consider there is a need for a separate policy. The Parish Council supports the fact that Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils will respond positively to and support appropriate and well-designed applications regarding the creation of new school and education facilities. It would like to emphasise the lack of capacity of the current primary school in the village for further growth and that any expansion in child education numbers is likely to lead to local children being sent out of the village with the attendant fracturing of the community.

COMMENT The Gooderham Family and ESCO Developments Ltd represented by Cheffins Planning & Development (Mr Jon Jennings)

Summary:

An appropriate policy is needed to manage the provision particularly of education facilities. However, there needs to be early and appropriate engagement with Suffolk County Council to ensure that there is planned expansion of schools which runs in tandem with the local plan and the issue is not deferred until the plan is adopted.

Representation ID: 9083

COMMENT Onehouse Parish Council (Mrs Peggy Fuller)

Summary:

Yes - lumping all infrastructure under one heading causes confusion and does not differentiate, and allows developers to state their responsibility has been fulfilled. A separate policy is required to take account of specific needs of the demographics of any new development i.e. actual numbers of people, not number of dwellings.

Representation ID: 6158

COMMENT Mr Carroll Reeve

Summary:

Yes. Education as drafted may need a more pro-active approach especially in rural locations as many local primary schools have little inherent flexibility to expand and the LEA, is apparently cash poor.
Health Care needs a broader approach than just the provision of surgeries, although these are important. Provision for early intervention in care in the community and at home, especially to meet the demands of an aging population is paramount. Assisted living provision can save money!

Representation ID: 6067

SUPPORT KBB (Keep Bildeston Beautiful) (John Beales)

More details about Rep ID: 6067

Representation ID: 5948

COMMENT Little Cornard Parish Council (Mr Dave Crimmin)

Summary:

Yes. Education should be a more important consideration. Take up on new developments should not negatively impact first choices of existing residents in traditional catchment areas. Transport for access to FE provision is poor in Babergh. Students should not have to travel so far and location of courses should take more account of transport issues. More provision of vocational course suitable for an ageing population.

Representation ID: 5907

COMMENT Mrs Nicky Willshere

Summary:

Yes - lumping all infrastructure under one heading causes confusion and does not differentiate, and allows developers to state their responsibility has been fulfilled.

Representation ID: 5697

SUPPORT Mr Graham Moxon

Summary:

Schools appear to be just about coping but are at full capacity. Healthcare is in crisis, it is almost impossible to get an appointment at the Capel St. Mary GP surgery and the partner GP surgery at East Bergholt. Further development of residential homes will only make these situations worse.

Representation ID: 3539

COMMENT Fressingfield Parish Council (Mr Alexander Day)

Summary:

See response to question 63 although the Parish Council would reiterate that two separate plans, one for education and another for healthcare should be created as the two services operate in such totally different ways and to combine them would be unhelpful. To have separate policies that fit with the policies of growth within the LEA and NHSE could well address the lag referred to earlier in service provision to local residents.

Yes

More details about Rep ID: 3508

Representation ID: 3331

SUPPORT Mrs Margaret Podd

Summary:

There should definitely be a separate policy to manage the provision of healthcare, as well as education, as both have land requirements. GP surgeries should be included in the list of service providers to be consulted (page 65), rather than just relying on the Commissioning Groups and NHS England.

Representation ID: 3313

COMMENT Drinkstone Parish Council (Mrs Daphne Youngs)
