Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Q5 (p13)

Representation ID: 12846

COMMENT Tidal Hill Limited represented by Armstrong Rigg Planning (Mr Geoff Armstrong)

Summary:

Clients land in Wherstead, houst south of Ipswich Fringe area. Only 300m south of Wherstead Park. Recognised as a strategically important given its proximity to key transport corridors of the A14 and A12. Land is ideally placed to meet the needs of businesses requiring good access to Ports, Ipswich and transport corridors of A14/A12. Important role to play in meeting the economic and housing needs of Babergh and Ipswich.

Issues and Options version of the Suffolk Coastal Local Plan Review notes Ipswich have been unable to identify sufficient housing sites, with land needed elsewhere to plug a shortfall of around 2,000 to 2,500 dwellings. Employment needs additional to this.

Extension of Ipswich fringe to Wherstead, or allocation of the land could play an important role in meeting future development needs.

COMMENT Great Blakenham Parish Council (Ms Janet Gobey) represented by Great Blakenham Parish Council (Ms Janet Gobey)

Summary:

There is a history in Great Blakenham of infrastructure improvements (for example, the station and the primary school) being promised and approved, but never actually being built. This causes considerable frustration to residents, especially as a very limited amount of the Section 106 money paid to the District Council as a result of developments in the village has actually been spent in the village. This must not be repeated in the future. Great Blakenham is prepared to accept a fair amount of further development, but not at the expense of the wellbeing and quality of life of the people who already live here.

Representation ID: 10014

OBJECT Henley Parish Council (Mr Rod Caird) represented by Mr Rod Caird

Summary:

The Parish Council feels that future development should be managed in such a way that the character of the village is protected and retained. It should not become an extension of northern Ipswich, and it should be protected as well from becoming an increasingly busy road junction between Ipswich, Claydon and Ashbocking. Growing populations near Henley will need to find access to the A14 and major population centres without Henley becoming an overloaded crossroads with bolted-on housing. The Community Centre, the Primary School, the Church and the mix of housing and agricultural land create a village ecology which could easily be unbalanced by uncontrolled development.

Representation ID: 9697

COMMENT Mr Frank Lawrenson

Summary:

The huge consensus in our village of Great Waldingfield is that we all moved here for the ruralness and tranquility, choosing to forfeit easy access to town facilities for the health and wellbeing resulting from living in close proximity to the countryside. We recognise the need for development and believe that large scale housing developments have no place in a rural village - a number of smaller developments, with rural rather than urban density of housing, around the edge of the village would best serve to retain our landscape's character.

Representation ID: 9690

COMMENT Miss R P Baillon

Summary:

Debenham: the most important aspect is the development of an adequate infrastructure and facilities for the current population and those who come into the village from neighbouring villages and hamlets where there are no facilities. This needs to be addressed if further developments are to take place. The amenities and infrastructure for the area needs to be planned carefully to allow for a positive quality of life.

There needs to be continual upkeep by the Council and Highways Agency in their various spheres of responsibility to maintain the village adequately.

Summary:

That growth should be by Local agreement and that provisions of the Localism Act such as Neighbourhood Plan should when "made" be respected and implemented. That todays facilities should not be a given for the future. (Judging Health Provision by floor space without consideration of any medical practitioner to occupy it is not a reliable way to measure infrastructure provision.)

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

Summary:

Bacton is considered a suitable and sustainable location for residential development. However, in identifying sites suitable for development due regard needs to be given to the impact that they have on the character and setting of listed buildings, the relationship to existing residential development and potential sources of nuisance and odour such as waste water treatment works. The provision of access, both pedestrian and vehicular is an important consideration.

SUPPORT Mrs Lynda Shephard

Summary:

For Long Melford to stay roughly the same size as it has achieved a good balance between size and facilities. However I understand that more housing is needed in the area but sites should be well-chosen so that they don't ruin beautiful views. Long Melford is regarded as one of the most desirable villages in Suffolk which encourages many visitors and artists so it would be inappropriate to build industrial sites here which will be noisy and encourage more heavy lorries coming into the outskirts of the village

COMMENT David Black & Sons Ltd. (Mr. James Black)

Summary:

We have recently built 2 - 3bed semi-detached houses for rental and having advertised them for rent received over a dozen enquiries in just 2 weeks. We identified a call for more affordable rented accommodation, especially where:
Young families can be located near other family members who can assist with child care.
Families have broken up and neither party want to move too far away.
People want to get out of towns and enjoy the countryside.
People are working locally and don't want long commutes.

COMMENT Redlingfield parish meeting (Ms Janet Norman-Philips)

Summary:

Redlingfield
We want growth. So that people who were born here are able to afford to continue living here and the family support networks that have grown up over generations are allowed to thrive.
Currently young people are forced out because they can't find affordable housing within the village.
Currently we are a hamlet/countryside village yet within the lifetime of this plan (and probably before this plan has been fully adopted) we will meet and exceed the sustainability criteria to be reclassified as a Hinterland village. It is essential that a mechanism to reclassify villages such as ours is included

Representation ID: 8484

COMMENT Mr Michael Beiley

Summary:

Preservation of the pre-existing rural way of life ; the pace of housing growth must be in proportion and not result in fundamentally undermining the character of the hamlet e.g. if a hamlet has 50 houses,growth of 10 % over a number of years is probably sustainable but 25% almost certainly not.

Summary:

One of the most important requirements for our villages is good infrastructure and this means when planning consider an application, the consideration of impact on the existing settlement should be a priority, rather than the need for more houses at the expense of local amenities, affordable housing, and organic housing development. A larger housing development will be difficult to integrate into the existing community.

For Sproughton:-
1) more houses means the Primary School needs to be expanded with associated funding.
2) More houses means more doctors, nurses, dentists are required - provision for this needs to be made in a timely manner which means funding at an early stage.
3) Improvements made to local roads to support the increase in traffic. Sproughton can be gridlocked e.g two weeks ago an accident on the A14 caused day-long queues crawling along at 5mph.

Summary:

Shotley peninsular is unique. the only such area within Babergh district. Areas close to the river are designated AONB, with plans to include the centre. Problem is access with one fairly poor road across the district, last improvements way back in the 50's(straightening of bad bends).Road subject to periodic flooding along the Strand.
Huge increase in developement in the near future, Ganges, possible Shotley Marina, Chelmondiston(50/60) and recent Holbrook,
The peninsular risks being over developed with little prospect of local employment, the main areas for such being Ipswich suburban area.
Public transport to the area recently suffered further cutbacks.

COMMENT mr k j white

Summary:

I am concerned about the creeping urbanization of our villages. My village of Drinkstone has always been proud of its rural nature, its trees, its hedgerows; its many footpaths and its dark skies. The joys of nature can be seen all around. Unfettered development could so easily destroy its present very rural character. Already one new housing development with its ornamental trees, fences, neat greensward, paving and hard kerb lines, has in essence brought a piece of suburbia into the village. Similar developments may tip the balance towards an inevitable fragmentation of the village's rural environment.

Freston. To continue to thrive whilst supporting both the young and older population. To encourage new and young people to move into the village.

We feel that there should be an overview of development for the whole Peninsula rather than piecemeal development in communities. The infrastructure is poor; one main road in and out takes the vast majority of traffic.
In Freston we have good agricultural land that grows crops such as potatoes, carrots and onions as well as sugar beet and grain crops. BDC should recognize the importance of farming.

COMMENT Mr Colin Johnston

Summary:

In Shimpling, it is to prevent speculators and developers from ruining the village on the pretext of meeting a national need. There is no virtue in tarmacing the countryside to create dormitory settlements. The countryside and the historic small villages and hamlets within it need protection from a 'one size fits all' approach to building houses

I noticed that on the village map in the draft plan, changes have been 'slipped into' the BUAB. This has been extended (no prior warning/consultation). IT NEEDS TO GO BACK TO ITS PREVIOUS LINE.

COMMENT Mrs Louise Carman

Summary:

It is most important to avoid over development. Copdock and Washbrook are small communities with poor infrastructure and few amenities and the proposals could more than double the size of the village. The roads are already overloaded and inadequate for the current volume of traffic and therefore the proposed plan would increase the gridlock that we experience on a frequate basis.

COMMENT Mr Graham Moxon

Summary:

In Copdock & Washbrook, the strong feeling of community, the sense of being in a small village where we all know each other, the large number of surrounding footpaths (maintained by village volunteers), the beautiful surrounding farm land and country views, the small country lanes, the minimal number of street lights, the absence of footpaths, the exceptional village school, the locally run pub... these are all things that make our village a wonderful place to live. This would all be spoiled by over development and a large increase in population and the scale of local facilities.

Changes in neighbouring villages must not have an adverse impact on Beyton particularly with respect to any additional traffic.

Building on or near the conservation areas should prevented and these areas should be preserved for the benefit of residents.

COMMENT LAWSHALL PARISH COUNCIL (Mrs Dorothy Griggs)

Summary:

Given the up-to-date nature of the Lawshall Neighbourhood Plan, it is hoped that the District Council will "minimise any conflicts between policies in the neighbourhood plan and the emerging Local Plan" as stated on page 78 of the consultation document.
A fundamental element of the Lawshall Neighbourhood Plan is its spatial policy that honours Lawshall's age-old character as a series of hamlets with open farmland between. Thus, any extension of the Built Up Area Boundaries (BUABs) or reduction of settlement gaps would be strongly opposed - since they would undermine this fundamental character.

The River Gipping valley currently provides an essentially unique green space, supporting a broad range of wildlife, which I consider very important to protect. I would welcome small increases in housing of all types to sustain proportionate growth, but larger developments would lead to a loss of community identity, would impact on green spaces and are not welcome.
