Summary:

Sites SS0295, SS0944* and SS0871 combine
to form one large continuous site. There are several Grade II listed buildings in close
proximity to the northern and southern site boundaries. Any development of the site

OBJECT Mr David Lincoln

Summary:

This will exacerbate the already dangerous traffic down back lane. Back lane cannot cope with existing surface water and the street often floods at the bottom. Building on this area with make this far worse, because the natural drainage will be removed.
The volume of houses should be achieved by spreading it evenly across the whole of this beautiful County and therefore keeping its heritage and destroying non of the villages.

COMMENT Mr Mark Blackwell

Summary:

SS0871 - This may be the type of small scale development that is entirely appropriate for a village such as Washbrook. However, there are concerns about highway safety (Back Lane is a rat run in rush hour when it is being used to walk children to school - it is unlit and has no footpath). When there are issues on the A12 and A14 the areas becomes significantly congested.

OBJECT Mrs Jill Korwin

Summary:

Cumulative impact of all proposals in Copdock exceed what should be built in Hinterland village. Proposed industrial units exceed local need; IEA identifies alternative locations
No reference to improved community facilities
Elm lane & Back Lane - single track - insufficient capacity, increased risk of accidents.
Old London Road - history of accidents and fatalities;
Swan Hill - backed up to the village at rush hour as motorists avoid Copdock Interchange. Growth only when A14/A12 interchange improved.
This proposed developments would severely impact adversely on the local community; contradicts Core Policy CS2; CS15; NPPF para 55.

OBJECT Mrs Ann Hurst

Summary:

Plan SS0871 appears to be inconsistent with the information on plan SS0944

To promote healthy living, mental wellbeing, the allotments are really important particularly where houses are built so close together with no space for vegetable gardening

OBJECT Mr Richard Barnes

This area is already quite a densely populated compared to other parts of the villages and the increased traffic on the country roads would will make for more safety issues. A much reduced and more sympathetic development may be acceptable.

OBJECT Mr Peter Herd

Summary:

Washbrook is a village and not part of Ipswich, it's clear that the council is trying to re-designate this area as Ipswich fringe.

Back Lane is already used as a rat run when the A12 is out and our property is on a very dangerous bend next to a listed building.

If development is to go ahead then Swan Hill Back Lane would need to have a 7 1/2 ton weight limit, so would Belstead to stop trucks using this as a rat run.

Additional traffic would raise environmental issues and the lack of school & GP facilities is worrying
