Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0593 - Land south west of London Road, Copdock

Representation ID: 12958

COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)


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.

OBJECT Mr Hugh Richards


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: 8759

OBJECT Mr Michael Bray


Infrastructure not sufficient for the size of the development proposed. The increased noise, light and air pollution would have a negative impact on our living standards on our village as a whole.
This would put pressure on our already over-stretched schools, doctors and roads
Is there not vacant properties within the Ipswich area that could be re-used, surely making good of existing vacant properties and businesses would be more practical than building more houses and businesses within our rural areas. Losing agricultural land is a big sacrifice to make on our local area for everyone including the wildlife.

OBJECT Mrs Linda Emery


SS0593 No provision for increased infrastructure to accommodate new villagers. The impact on local Schools, doctors, dentists, the sewerage system, Swan Hill, the old A12, new A12 and Copdock interchange need to be considered, with all reports obtained being made publicly available.

Representation ID: 7402

OBJECT Mrs Joanne Bray


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.

COMMENT Mr David Marsh


The current Old London Road residential block consists entirely of bungalows, and any further developments should be sensitive to this to protect the visual amenity and heritage of the area.

OBJECT Mr Stephen Clarke


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: 1423

OBJECT Mr & Mrs A. J. Foreman


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.
