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.

COMMENT Copdock and Washbrook Parish Council (Angela Chapman)

Summary:

What a Freudian slip. It is Folly Lane. The residents have issues over the width of the lane. In places two cars pass with difficulty. Car and lorry is impossible. Most residents have put white painted concrete blocks on the
verge, which gives limited protection to their gardens.

OBJECT Marilyn Baldry

Summary:

Access to this area is by a very narrow lane on to a very busy corner on the old A12. Extra heavy traffic from an industrial site plus normal local traffic filtering from the new A12 and use as a rat run would undoubtedly be a dangerous area.
Noise and air pollution from industry for the existing community would be overwhelming.

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.

Representation ID: 8938

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: 8042

OBJECT Mrs Linda Emery

Summary:

SS0919 Already strained existing infrastructure would be placed under further strain. School, Doctor, Dentist and utility provision, such as sewerage, for new village inhabitants and workers should be investigated with all reports, findings and proposed upgrades being made publicly available.

The increase in traffic turning off/onto the A12 Jr could increase danger for motorists and cyclists, an activity the council seeks to encourage, not least with the increase of and proposed plans for cycle lane provision.

Representation ID: 7389

OBJECT Mrs Joanne Bray

Summary:

Such a large development would not constitute a village environment and would have a serious impact on our village.
Increased air, noise and light pollution.
This is agricultural land and we need to keep them. Once a field has been built on its been lost forever.
Impact on loss of wildlife habitats.
Insufficient infrastructure we currently struggle to get doctors appointments and the schools are full. The village roads are over run especially when there are problems with the A12 Copdock. The A12 Copdock is expected to be at full capacity by 2021 without taking this proposed development into consideration.

Representation ID: 7291

OBJECT Mr Watling Michael

Summary:

Again too large in area for the size of our village. Some localised ribbon development could be accessible but not the development of all of the area proposed. Industrial use does not seem appropriate in this area.due to the infrastructure available in the area.

SS0919/SS0620 Lane west of London Road and South of Folly Lane. SS0620 Land west of London Road.

OBJECT Mr Terry Corner

Summary:

access to dual carriageway does not automatically mean good road access. Adversely affected by proposed mineral extraction site on opposite side of A12.

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

Representation ID: 4174

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.

Representation ID: 2905

OBJECT MR STEPHEN EDGELL

Summary:

Folly Lane is presently being used for business use (and farm use) which already means the narrow lane is vey busy for an access that becomes a bridleway. Even if access was provided onto the Old London Road for vehicles, this merely faces the same issues as stated elsewhere about capacity and infrastructure problems.
This proposed site is one which seriously encroaches on the ambience and make up of the area. I would consider that the building on BOTH sides of Old London Road would destroy the community experience.

OBJECT mr david green

Summary:

higher air and noise pollution
the infrastructure of the roads/lanes around copdock would not cope with the extra traffic.

Representation ID: 2565

OBJECT Jill Worrall

Summary:

There are several listed buildings within the village, adding to its character and charm. One is a Tudor barn, chose for its beautiful rural location as a wedding venue lying adjacent to our ancient church. The livelihood of local businesses, such as my own are linked to this venue and surely will be affected if development of more houses and industrial sites here are allowed to succeed.

OBJECT Lucy Worrall

Summary:

Over- populating Copdock would increase crime rates, pollution and lower the quality of life. Thus, ruining the villages infrastructure and historical values.

Copdock Church was broken into last month, we do not want a continual repeat of this due to your overpopulating on our ground.
