Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS1018 - Land to the west of A1141,

Representation ID: 10114

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

Site SS1018 immediately abuts the Cockfield Cross Green Conservation Area and is
in close proximity to three Grade II listed buildings including Thatchers Restaurant,
The Water and Water End Cottage. The Cockfield Cross Green Conservation Area
Appraisal identifies a Historic Environment Record Site of Archaeological
Significance (number 47) to the immediate south of the river which bounds the
southern boundary of the proposed site allocation. This may indicate the presence of
more as yet undiscovered archaeology of interest which should be considered.

OBJECT Mrs Valerie Cousins

Summary:

SS1018 and SS0623 plus the existing building and proposals for Hope House development would add a further 36 dwellings to Cross Green. This is overdevelopment of a Hamlet/Hinterland/Countryside location.

The A1141 is a very busy and dangerous road. The developments would need to enter and exit onto the A1141 Where there are visibility is limited to oncoming traffic with the potential for accidents/collisions.

The proposals would abut the conservation area and the developments would have a detrimental impact on this heritage asset. Site has a surface water flood risk. Site abuts a tributary of the River Brett. The Heritage Team believes that the cumulative impact of proposed developments would have a harmful effect. Home Meadow is a haven to wildlife.

OBJECT Mr David Smith

Summary:

I object to the proposal to develop this land because it will severely increase the density of housing in Cross Green, which, although it forms part of Cockfield, is no more than a hamlet, More housing on that land will cause more traffic, more noise and more drain on such local resources as we have at the moment.
There is also building taking place at Hope Farm, which has already caused disruption to traffic due to associated road works and delivery lorries. to increase the number of houses in that area will spoil the appearance of the area.

OBJECT Mr Brian Mitchell

Summary:

The hamlet of Cross Green has 35 dwellings sitting close to or within its historic conservation area with planning permission already submitted for another 11 dwellings. This current development has been criticised by the BDC Heritage Team for having an adverse impact because of the disproportionate scale of the development. Currently this hamlet displays a balanced mix of historicly relevant houses together with newer infill. This balance is already being threatened by the current development and the prospect of even more with all the associated impact will further erode this precious asset that benefits the village and wider community.

OBJECT Pauline Martin

Summary:

There are two proposed sites SS1018& SS0623 in total 25 houses. There is currently the redevelopment of Hope Farm of 6 4/5 bedroom houses with planning for a further 5 a total of 36 homes doubling the size of Cross Green, totally disproportionate. amenities, church, school, post office and pub are 2 miles away not easily accessed on foot, there being no continuous footpath. any further development will affect the rural setting and erode the historic settlement of Cross Green, listed buildings, local landscape and the Cockfield conservation area.

OBJECT Mrs Dianne Wright

Summary:

Site SS1018 is unsuitable for development.

The site needs to be re-assessed to reconsider it's suitability and allocation to the Plan, as detailed (SHELAA). These include Highways, Sensitive Landscape, Historic Environment and Surface Water Flooding.

The SHEALA has also failed to appreciate the Conservation Area, Lack of Services/Facilities, Disproportionate Development, Biodiversity & Diversity.

A large development of 52 homes is also progressing at Mackenzie Place, Lavenham Road over and above those currently identified by SHELAA sites (SS1018 and SS0623). These alone would be sufficient for the Plan period.

OBJECT Mr Michael Wright

Summary:

Site SS1018 is not appropriate for development, there are a number of shortcomings in the current assessment of the site, which needs re-addressing: As identified in the SHELAA it has a number of constraints in relation to: HIGHWAYS,
SENSITIVE LANDSCAPE,
HISTORIC ENVIRONMENT,
SURFACE WATER FLOODING.

Plus, the SHELAA has failed to recognise: CONSERVATION AREA,
LACK OF SERVICES/FACILITIES, DISPROPORTIONATE DEVELOPMENT, BIODIVERSITY & GEODIVERSITY

A large site is progressing at Mackenzie Place, Lavenham Road, providing a significant number of homes (42 + 9 plots), above that currently identified by SHELAA sites (both SS1018, SS0623), and would be sufficient for the Plan period.

OBJECT Mr Allan Cousins

Summary:

Cockfield is termed a Core Village this is incorrect.The scoring needs reassessment.Cross Green is one of eight greens within Cockfield, exceeds 2kms from the main services/facilities and should be a separate, Hamlet/Countryside/Hinterland
entity scoring 5 points. 25 dwellings are proposed (SS1018/SS0623) plus 11 at Hope House development, 36 in total doubling the size of Cross Green which is disproportionate additionally not taking into account of 52 dwellings at Mackenzie Place. SS1018/SS0623 abuts a Conservation Area detracting from it.
SS1018/SS0623 require ingrees /egress onto the busy/dangerous A1141road with visual impairments/dips/bends and 30mph temporary speed alert cameras.

OBJECT Roy & Bernice Tooke

Summary:

Whilst we accept that there is a need for local and affordable housing, we have concerns about the suitability of this site. Land spends most of the winter water logged. An abundance of wildlife and to build houses would be a travesty to the wild life that thrive on this land.
Concerns over access, as it would create a staggered junction, with worries over safety.
Village amenities are approximately 3miles away, with no continuous footpath.
Biggest concern is the potential over development of Cross Green, with other planned developments. We believe there seems to be a large and excessive amount of proposed and agreed building concentrated in the small area of cross green.
