Summary:

The proposal that Little Waldingfield (LW) should be classified as a Hinterland Village is not supported by the evidence. the Settlement hierarchy review 2017 needs amending as - the pub has closed, bus service is reduced, and superfast broadband is not available. clearly LW should be reclassified as a Hamlet

COMMENT Cotton Parish Council (Mr Rod Caird) represented by Mr Rod Caird

Summary:

The Parish Council very strongly believes that the future plan for the District should retain and support the character of Cotton as a rural village. It would wish to see a clear distinction between Cotton and Bacton, noting that Bacton is classified in the proposals as a "Core Village"; any creeping blurring of the boundary between Cotton and its neighbouring settlements would be strongly resisted as it would undermine the character of the village.

SUPPORT Cotton Parish Council (Mr Rod Caird) represented by Mr Rod Caird

Summary:

The Parish Council supports the proposition in the document that Cotton be in the "Hamlets and Countryside" hierarchy category of the two districts. It notes that under all the Districts' options for the future, the Hamlets and Countryside category will be likely to have to deliver about 5% of district growth.

OBJECT Henley Parish Council (Mr Rod Caird) represented by Mr Rod Caird

Summary:

The Parish Council notes that Henley currently sits in the Core Villages draft list,
alongside Bramford, Claydon and Great Blakenham. Core villages would be
expected to carry between 20% and 30% of envisaged District development. Henley
however does not enjoy the facilities of its neighbouring villages especially with
regard to shops, pubs and restaurants and public transport. Henley seems to have
more in common with Little Blakenham, Gosbeck and Crowfield, which would
suggest its natural position in the hierarchy would be Hinterland Villages, which will
be expected to carry 5% - 10% of envisaged development.

COMMENT Cllr John Hinton

Summary:

As it is a "Joint" Local Plan proposal - the settlement lists are confusing to say the least as they are a composite of nearly 200 parishes.

OBJECT Mrs Hannah Lord-Vince

Summary:

* Village status distorted by scoring system, influences development location.
* Sproughton classed as CORE and also HINTERLAND village, can't be both?
* scoring based on distance to services and facilities; should be based on travel time as accessibility overstated.
* No account taken of capacity of a service in scoring (eg Primary School/shops
* Positive scoring factors in this Hierarchy assessment are actually negative factors against Creeping Coalescence (i.e. the erosion of as communities' individuality)
* We would support reconsideration of the scoring criteria adopted to include fairly balanced negative scores for the threat of Creeping Coalescence.

COMMENT Dr Ian Russell

Summary:

Development: common sense dictates investment in roads to the east and south of Sudbury to service past, present and future development. Our aims in opposing the Sudbury Western Relief Road are to correct the severe adverse impact of through traffic on Sudbury town centre; to provide infrastructure of direct benefit to residents of Sudbury, Great Cornrad, Great Waldingfield and Chilton Woods; and to avoid the severe adverse impacts of a western bypass by leaving the Stour Valley water meadows and heritage landscape near Sudbury alone.

OBJECT Mr Peter Powell

Summary:

The unwelcome theme of this hierarchy scoring system is proximity of other towns, services etc as a heavily weighted positive factor for development. However these factors in equal significance an indication of creeping coalescence. Villages are trying to preserve their identity and green boarders and this scoring system is just a thinly veiled excuse to dismiss and override the very concerns of the communities.
The scoring system also appears to ignore capacity of services or the actual traveling time or capability to travel to services which may be significantly different dependent of the available infrastructure.

COMMENT Mr Andrew Sedgwick

Summary:

Following a meeting conducted with the Parish Council on 06th November, concerns were raised about the designation of Norton as a 'Core Village', being allocated 19 points on the given scale. I would like to challenge this conclusion, which has a direct impact on all suggested development within the Village. It would seem that points have been allocated disproportionately and there is evidence of several 'bites of the cherry' with respect the petrol garage/newsagent/convenience store. I invite the originator to justify the findings and call for the village of Norton to be re-assessed.

OBJECT MSDC Green Group (Cllr John Matthissen)

Summary:

General points
* The proposed bands are too wide, equating settlements of very significantly different size and character. For example Core Villages - Thurston and Lavenham compared with Badwell Ash and Old Newton.
* The settlement hierarchy factors (available online at http://www.midsuffolk.gov.uk/assets/Strategic-Planning/Current-Evidence-Base/BMSDC-Topic-Paper-Settlement-Hierarchy-Review.pdf should be weighted to reflect settlement population in addition. (See also RG2)
* There seems some confusion about parishes v settlements.

OBJECT Mrs Louise Baldry

Summary:

The criteria proposed gives too much weight to the proximity of settlements, without taking into account how these settlements are accessed, village status is distorted by a scoring system and I do not agree with it

OBJECT Mr John Bellwood

Summary:

The criteria proposed give too much weight to the proximity of settlements, without taking into account how these settlements are accessed. NPPF seeks to minimise the need to travel, give priority to pedestrian and cycle movements and high quality public transport.

Ipswich fringe is NOT a settlement type merely a geographical fact and should be removed from the settlement criteria. It is possible to travel from the Ipswich fringe to Colchester quicker than to travel from Babergh fringe settlements to key service needs in Ipswich.

OBJECT Iain Pocock

Summary:

The hierarchy itself seems extremely sensible, however it is then ignored as villages with little or no infrastructure but straight line proximity to Ipswich are boosted to fringe status irrespective of the hierarchy position or travel time into the town. This renders the hierarchy a points exercise if it is simply going to be ignored

COMMENT Great Finborough Parish Council (Mrs Paula Gladwell)

Summary:

Again a very generalised means of identifying the status of a village. The "amenities" may rank scores but no account is taken of the fact that for example the village school may be oversubscribed with many children coming from elsewhere. There has been little consultation or input sought to ensure the arbitrary scores are correct. The ranking of 9-17 are incorrect for Great Finborough. There is No Post Office, no Newsagent, No daily transport (only one bus on a Tuesday and one on a Saturday) This gives an entirely incorrect view of the villages sustainability for addition housing.

OBJECT Drinkstone Parish Council (Mrs Daphne Youngs)

Summary:

The criteria proposed give too much weight to the proximity of settlements, without taking into account how these settlements are accessed. NPPF seeks to minimise the need to travel, give priority to pedestrian and cycle movements and high quality public transport. Communities deemed unsustainable under NPPF are now declared capable of accommodating "proportionate development". The presence of a skeleton bus service does not make a community less dependent on private cars.
FACTUAL ERRORS IN THE SCORING: Drinkstone is 8 miles from a town, not 3 and the main settlement is 2.5 miles from a core village, not 1.5.

COMMENT Great Ashfield PC (arthur peake)

Summary:

Great Ashfield appears to be erroneously linked with Great Bricett (see Hinterland Villages list page 26.
The key services and facilities for Great Ashfield that are "facilities that reduce the need to travel by car and support the vitality of the local community" actually total close to zero.
This needs to be reassessed.

OBJECT Mr. Nick Miller for Sudbury Green Belt Group

Summary:

Review of the Settlement Hierarchy: we submit that the balance of aspects in the following statement has not been struck - "In considering the broad locations for new development, national planning policy requires that sustainable development is applied through balancing social, economic and environmental aspects".
Similarly, the following impacts have not been adequately assessed - "The existing urban areas and market towns characteristically are known to have a good range of services and facilities which could support sustainable development, subject to detailed assessments of impact such as in relation to infrastructure."
