Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0227 - Land between London Road and A12,

Representation ID: 12960

COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)

Summary:

Belstead Quarry Extension - The current safeguarding areas are proposed to change to more defined areas. Sand and gravel is a nationally important resource and Suffolk has a sand and gravel sub regional apportionment figure and it is required to plan for sites to meet this apportionment. The minerals safeguarding area (MSA) is an area of potential mineral resource, identified through the best available data from the British Geological Survey. Its purpose is to protect potentially exploitable sand and gravel deposits from being sterilised by development on top of, or adjacent to those deposits. Following guidance in defining this area , the County Council is looking to safeguard all areas of sand and gravel within the county with an additional 250m buffer to prevent sterilisation of the sand and gravel resource by adjacent development.

Representation ID: 8954

OBJECT Mr Hugh Richards

Summary:

The village is small and has barely any infrastructure; certainly not sufficient to cope with the volume of proposed housing and industrial development. Pollution will be increased and the character of the village will be completely changed for the worse. In particular, the old A12 is already used by traffic every morning and evening as a rat run to avoid the roundabout at the A12/A14 junction so without major traffic management measures being introduced, Copdock will become a car park.

Representation ID: 7145

OBJECT Andrew Butters

Summary:

There is some evidence that living within 200 metres of a busy road represents an increased risk to health over the long term.

As this entire piece of land is well within 200 metres of the main A12 (which is extremely busy, often with stationary or slow-moving traffic which tails back to this point from the Copdock interchange), it would surely be irresponsible to permit new development upon it.

Representation ID: 2890

OBJECT MR STEPHEN EDGELL

Summary:

The Old London Road is already a road with hazardous 'U' turn breaks and a speed limit rarely respected. It does not have the capacity to take extra vehicles who would be trying to enter/exit the existing structure. Similarly, extra vehicles from homes then using A12 / A14 which is already beyond capacity makes no sense.
our property does not have the luxury of being set back from the road our front door is only 5.3 metres from the verge - already have triple glazing - so any extra noise would be detrimental in terms of noise and pollution

OBJECT mr mark curtis

Summary:

There is no infrastructure (i.e., roads, schools, surgeries, dental practice, sewage, etc). The A12 and surrounding roads are heavily congested during morning and evening rush hours and if the Orwell bridge is closed the entire area is gridlocked. There are protected species on the land in question (bats, badgers, dormice, etc.), we also have live stock, what happens to them? There are many public footpaths used by the Ramblers Association? Copdock is not "Stagnant" as Tom Barker stated on 2nd Nov 2017, its popular because its peaceful and its surrounding natural beauty.
