S50919/5S0620 Lane west of London Road and South of Folly Lane. SS0620 Land west of London Road. Extends the ribbon development away from Ipswich towards Capel St Mary. Adoption with due regard to the traffic issues in Folly Lane would help create a sense of community in the area.

OBJECT Mrs Zena Gravener

Summary:

Folly Lane is a single track road, with housing along both sides. There is already business use which makes the road impossible for residents when, as always happens, lorries, vans, and cars continually use this single C road. As it is inadequate now, and cannot be widened, surely it CANNOT be developed with MORE traffic?

Representation ID: 12279

OBJECT Mr Mag Osborne

Summary:

More business development in Folly Lane will create more traffic problems and the road is inadequate currently. This road is a 'C' class road and cannot be developed.

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

A Roman Road runs along the eastern boundary of site SS060SS0919* which
increases the potential archaeological interest of the site it is recommended that any
forthcoming policy and supporting text for this site allocation requires an
archaeological assessment for development proposals within the site. The Grade II
listed Woodsend House is located to the east of the site.

Any development of these sites has the potential to impact upon these heritage
assets. The presence of these heritage assets should be considered carefully as part
of the site allocation process.

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.

OBJECT Mrs Linda Emery

Summary:

SS0620 The increase in traffic with development of this scale would be significant. A Highways department report on the impact of efficient vehicular flow and RTA should be sought and made publicly available.

Infrastructure upgrades would be necessary to accommodate the extra resulting traffic and strain on an already struggling sewerage system. Office and warehousing staff may be at a higher level per unit than found within housing, therefore creating increased levels of strain on existing roads and services.

OBJECT Mr David Marsh

Summary:

Given the 35.5 hectares of brown field land available at the former Sproughton sugar beet factory for b1 and residential use I find it hard to see how a 'green field' development can be justified. For residential use this land is less than attractive for the following reasons: noise and pollution from the close proximity of the A12. Access to Ipswich would mean turning right across the at times very busy Old London Road dual carriage way. The visual amenity of both new and existing residents would be poor.

SUPPORT Mr Watling Michael

Summary:

As ribbon infill residential development ok but not for business use. Future carriageway improvements should be considered to Folly Lane

SUPPORT Mr Terry Corner

Summary:

SS0919/SS0620 Lane west of London Road and South of Folly Lane. SS0620 Land west of London Road.
Extends the ribbon development away from Ipswich towards Capel St Mary. Adoption with due regard to the traffic issues in Folly Lane would help create a sense of community in the area.

OBJECT Mr Stephen Clarke

Summary:

A nearby planning application for just 7 houses was rejected in 2016 with the inspector commenting that it could not fulfill requirements to be sustainable. Any housing on this plot would involve significantly more houses/industry so similarly would not be sustainable. The local infrastructure (roads, public transport, shops, doctors, dentists, sewage etc) simply cannot support such large scale development and the entire character of the village would be changed for the worse by it.

OBJECT Mrs Michaela Chan

Summary:

No infrasructure in place. Loss of wildlife habitats. Noise and air pollution.

OBJECT Mr Richard Barnes

Summary:

Folly lane is currentley carrying more traffic than it can take and the junction at this point on the old A12 combined with the traffic coming of the main A12 would make this area very dangerous. All ameniaties that service this area are working at full capacity, more houses is only going to make things worse.

Representation ID: 3229

OBJECT Ms Stella Morland-Pearce

Summary:

This land appears to be serviced by 2 very small lanes which I doubt could cope with the extra traffic which would be created. In particular, the Folly Lane junction would become extremely dangerous with most traffic wishing to turn right onto the A12.

This piece of land is well away from any kind of centre of the village so would not have access to the limited infrastructure already available - school, doctor, shops, pub - so this would create more traffic.

The sewage system is outdated and already under strain. Are there plans to improve that?

Representation ID: 1422

OBJECT Mr & Mrs A. J. Foreman

Summary:

We strongly object to houses being built in Folly Lane Copdock, or London Road, Copdock. Folly Lane not adequate for any more traffic. A12 from Copdock to Ipswich/Felixstowe is already heavily congested with traffic, and cannot take any more.
We are advised that sewers cannot cope with any more effluent and currently get blocked. More houses will make medical surgery more stretched.
