Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Healthy Communities

Representation ID: 13131

COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)

Summary:

Public health could also be addressed in relation to:
 Air quality - the plan could promote measures for low emission vehicles. The Council will be willing to work with the District Council to reduce congestion.
 Transport - providing safe walking and cycling routes encourages people to be physically active.
 Design - health should be a consideration of housing design.
 Climate Change - The Suffolk Climate Change Action Plan highlights that preventable deaths caused by hot weather in England and Wales was projected to increase from approximately 2000, to 7000 by the middle of the century.

Representation ID: 12994

COMMENT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

The councils are currently producing an overarching Leisure, Sports and Physical Activity Strategy. Their preference is to relate requirements to identified needs rather than set a prescriptive requirement.
This seems logical but further detail is needed.
Whilst we agree with the policies outlined here, we are concerned that any existing individual communities should not lose their community identity and cohesion as a result of 'creeping coalescence 'arising from the inappropriate location of new developments.
We suggest that more emphasis is given to ensuring that any necessary developments are spread more evenly over the District as a whole.

OBJECT Mr Gary Clark

Summary:

* Whilst i agree with the policies outlined here, we are concerned that any existing individual communities should not lose their community identity and cohesion as a result of 'creeping coalescence 'arising from the inappropriate location of new developments.
* I consider greater attention needs to be given to avoiding the 'swamping' of existing communities with excessive developments. We suggest that more emphasis is given to ensuring that any necessary developments are spread more evenly over the District as a whole, rather than being concentrated in particular communities.

Representation ID: 12693

COMMENT Environment Agency (Miss Charlie Christensen)

Summary:

The provision of green infrastructure appears to be primarily concerned with amenity open space provision. We would like to see this expanded to include more natural assets, for example, river corridors and networks of wildlife habitats The options assessed in respect of the healthy communities' policy in the Sustainability Appraisal only demonstrate benefits to population and health. We would like to see a broader, more linked up approach, with the plan recognising that seeking to achieve objectives.... can provide much wider benefits to others....We would also like to see policies that help to deliver WFD objectives for the Suffolk catchment

OBJECT Suffolk Wildlife Trust (Mr James Meyer)

Summary:

The green infrastructure (GI) section would be better located with the biodiversity section. Also, the section does not reflect the definition of GI and must be expended to ensure that GI is properly accounted for in the Local Plan.

Representation ID: 11019

COMMENT Babergh Alliance of Parish & Town Councils (Helen Davies)

Summary:

Healthcare in the Ipswich area is already under significant stress. In the UK there are not enough GPs and steadily increasing demand. How will more GPs be found to provide healthcare to an increased population?

An increase in elderly residents means more carers are required. In 20 years' time it is estimated that there will be a deficit of 1/2 million carers.

The councils are currently producing an overarching Leisure, Sports and Physical Activity Strategy. Their preference is to relate requirements to identified needs rather than set a prescriptive requirement. This seems logical but further detail is needed.

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

The continued protection or enhancement of the historic environment can contribute
to the provision of high quality places in both rural areas and towns/villages which
can impact upon wellbeing. Parks and gardens often have historic links which can
be help improve the experience of the place for those visiting or using it. The use of
historic spaces for recreational or leisure purposes may encourage people to visit
and thus help promote knowledge of local historic places.

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

Landscape, parks and open space often have heritage interest, and it would be helpful to highlight this. It is important not to consider 'multi-functional' spaces only in terms of natural environment, health and recreation. May be helpful to make reference to the role it can play in enhancing and conserving and improving the historic environment. Opportunities can be taken to link GI networks into already existing green spaces in town or existing historic spaces such as church yards to improve the setting of historic buildings or townscape. Maintenance of GI networks and spaces should also be considered so that they continue to serve as high quality places which remain beneficial in the long term.

Representation ID: 8760

COMMENT Mr Peter Powell

Summary:

Creeping Coalescence and the associated Community Identity around the Ipswich Fringe is under threat. Green spaces are an important factor in this and there needs to be a strategy and criteria that can be fairly applied to all communities.
This could be linked to landscape and/or the Playing Pitch Audit, Built Sports Facilities Audit and Open Spaces Assessment which are still underway.

Representation ID: 8353

OBJECT Ms Helen Davies

Summary:

Has sufficient consideration been given to additional load all the new homes in Sproughton would place on local health infrastructure. All surgeries in Ipswich are stretched and finding it difficult to attract GPs. Pinewood and Hawthorn Drive are closest to Sproughton. Pinewood is understaffed and recently closed their lists for a period of time. An additional 2,320 homes means at least 6,000 new patients - where will they go??

OBJECT Mr. Nick Miller for Sudbury Green Belt Group

Summary:

DEPRIVATION - including Air Quality and Road Safety: The onus would seem to be on the District Council to prove that its plans will reduce deprivation, and the Plan fails to do this. For instance on issues of Air quality, the Plan does not indicate its policy. We hear the necessary traffic study hasn't been produced, in the case of Chilton Woods in Sudbury, despite which officers have at time of writing recommended planning permission, where the road access will add to air pollution and safety issues. GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE - numerous questions haven't been addressed.
