Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0177 - Land south of Tamage Road, Acton

Representation ID: 11649

SUPPORT Bloor Homes Eastern represented by JB Planning Associates (Mr Nicholas Ward)


Site is full capable of being allocated for residential development. Site is located within a village that scores highly in terms of sustainability. Its location to the south of the village, is well related to Sudbury which lies to its south. Consequently, journeys to and from the town would not give rise to additional traffic flow within the village centre.

We believe it is useful to compare our client's site to land at Barrow Hill, Acton (SS0186) the only other site being proposed for development in Acton. Sites have significant similarities between our client's site and Barrow Hill, and constitute the two most logical locations at which to locate any residential expansion of the settlement.

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)


Site lies to the south of the existing settlement of Acton and is bounded by
existing roads which will help contain any further development. There are no known
heritage assets within the site boundary which would be affected by the development of this site however, the Grade II listed Vicarage lies to the east of the site. Any development of the site has the potential to impact upon this heritage asset. The presence of this heritage asset should be considered carefully as part of the site allocation process.

OBJECT Acton Parish Council (Mr Paul MacLachlan)


This site is immediately adjacent, but outside the Acton settlement boundary. In view of the approval given to build up to 100 dwellings on land south east of Barrow Hill (application DC/17/02751 was approved on 25 October 2017), the Council requests that site SS0177 be disregarded on the grounds that a further 90 dwellings on this site will constitute overdevelopment and stretch local infrastructure to breaking point.
