Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Barham
OBJECT Mrs Susan Edwards
The amount of development to extend our village will impact on:-
The extra traffic on already busy roads through Claydon village which is already congested. Going out towards Henley are country lanes not suitable for an extra 1,000 homes with about 2,000 cars.
The sewers are old and has broken down recently and Anglia Water says it will not cope as it is.
The village will double with no extra facilities i.e. larger doctors, community centre, schools and shops. Parking by the facilities we have is already a problem. Keep the fields for crops not houses.
OBJECT John Tuppen
Many sites around Claydon and Barham would have high impact on existing footpaths, open spaces and wildlife corridors. Existing infrastructure is at capacity or exceeded. Developing all sites would double the size of the community, a re-designation of existing service spaces would be required. A proposed Northern route terminates at Claydon and would have a significant local impact. For all of the above it is essential that the area be planned as whole and the existing "developer lead commercial initiatives" be recognised for what they are. We need a proper thought out plan for the area not piecemeal development.
SUPPORT Artisan PPS Ltd (Mr. Leslie Short)
In principle this village is an appropriate location for relatively small scale growth (sub 50 dwellings) which maintains it separate identity from Claydon.
The Barham Hall Farm site is a redundant poultry farm which is available for development and has previously had planning permission for 12 dwellings. It is capable of delivering at least that number now through redevelopment
OBJECT Barham Parish Council (Mrs Joanne Culley)
Barham Parish Council supports small scale developments of 10 to 20 houses that are sustainable and over time can become an integral part of the existing village. All developments must have additional infrastructure such as roads, water and sewerage, public services etc provided at the same time to ensure any impact is minimised.
As a Parish Council we are opposed to developments that are larger than 20 - 30 houses as they will destroy the current rural feel to the village.
All developments should respect and enhance the existing environment taking account of wildlife havens footpaths etc.
