Ideally close to the main residential areas for the provision of leisure walks etc. The Gipping Valley, the countryside views from it and valleys like Chantry Vale leading into it should be considered as landscape / wildlife projects to ensure the best is preserved for future generations residing in urban areas.

The Parish Council's experience of the protection from District council planning over recognised green spaces in the community has created a rather jaundiced view of the importance attached to this initiative.

OBJECT Mr. Nick Miller for Sudbury Green Belt Group

Summary:

We absolutely must recognise as a bottom line for the Local Plan, that by just tacking developments adjacent to a town, we deprive that part of town (in our case, half of Sudbury and Gt Cornard) of its open space access within day-to-day walking distance. Therefore new development must be sited accordingly, or well exceed the 10% rule in such cases, as they will need also to compensate the town, especially where (as in most of Sudbury) there is negligible green space.
