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

Representation ID: 13095

COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)


Growth around Woolpit, Thurston and Elmswell also requires a cumulative approach (re transport). As well as improvements to Junction 47, the county is aware of the need to address Elmswell's level crossing.

COMMENT R A Edmondson


I am appalled at your future plans. Number of planned houses is out of proportion. There is no justification that we should be told to take more than are fair share of what the Govt. dictates. By increasing the load now it will mean that in 15-20? years to come that the village will be expected to have a still higher proportion. Why have you penalized our village, like Thurston and Elmswell. Little/no allowance has been made about infrastructure. Build the infrastructure first including the A14. For each person who dies before due to accidents or stress will I hope sue the Councillors for conspiring to destroy village life.

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)


A large number of sites are being considered for allocation around Woolpit which will
result in the substantial expansion of the existing settlement. Woolpit has a number
of highly significant designated heritage assets including the Grade I listed Church of
St Mary and Lady's Well scheduled monument, the historic core of the town also
benefits from conservation area designation. The presence of
these heritage assets and their settings should therefore be considered carefully as
part of the site allocation process.

OBJECT Professor Robert Turner & Mrs J.M. Turner


The fragile nature of many of the buildings in the conservation area was not adequately taken into account. The heavier the traffic the greater the risk of their limited foundations being destroyed. The hub of the village is within a conservation area which is truly such and will be destroyed by uninformed over development.
