COMMENT Mrs Ann Hurst

Summary:

Safe cycle routes after all we won't be able to drive to work easily because the roads are gridlocked now. What a shame such things as park and ride are available or not used to their full potential.

COMMENT Mrs Sheila Hurdwell

Summary:

More attention should be paid to the natural environment for green spaces.

Consider the inclusion of woodland and other open spaces such as meadows. Footpaths and cycleways contribute to health and ease of movement as well as reducing car travel but appear to have a low priority; should these also be considered community facilities and developed as such?

COMMENT Raydon Parish Council (Mrs Jane Cryer)

Summary:

No thoughts or comments. However, we agree the Councils' preference to include a policy in line with Option CF2 where new community facilities would be supported and existing facilities would be protected against loss unless it can be demonstrated that they are surplus to requirements or that the development outweighs the loss of the facilities and alternative provision can be made elsewhere.

COMMENT Mrs Sara Knight

Summary:

In areas of rural deprivation the importance to fostering strong support networks in small communities of 'hubs' of activity such as playing fields and village halls can be overlooked.? Wilder spaces for therapeutic wandering need as much protection as managed spaces for organised useage. Protection of the network of footpaths is also of key importance here.
