Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0510 - Land to the north east of Halifax Place,
COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)
The Council should be aware that the Grade II listed Tatch End and Cracketts is
located to the north of the proposed site allocation. Development of the site has the potential to impact upon its setting and so the presence of this heritage asset should
be considered carefully as part of the site allocation process.
OBJECT Shimpling Parish Council (Mrs Linda Goodban)
Part occupied by the playground. Facilities are inadequate for a potential 18 dwellings. There are currently 2 dwellings being built and a further 11 applications being considered so together with the development included in the local plan there would be a total of 31 plus any future applications. This potential level of development is clearly not sustainable in a rural/hamlet designated village. Previous Local Plan concluded that a development for 50/60 dwellings would be unsustainable in Shimpling.
The Council feel the village would perhaps be able to accommodate smaller in-fill developments of 1 or 2 houses randomly within the parish.
OBJECT Mrs Sue Salmon
This is our community play area and would be a great loss to the parish if this as removed to allow building development. There are no alternative areas within the parish that would be suitable for a play area like this.
OBJECT Mr Gerry Shrimpton
The Land in question is partly occupied by the village playground and any development would necessitate moving the existing playground equipment and finding another site
There are virtually no employment opportunities in the village and the current facilities and infrastructure are inadequate to support a development of potentially 18 dwellings.
with village hall max cap of 50 not sufficient currently,no schools, no shops, virtually no bus service, a part time pub. There are applications for13 houses currently outstanding which I presume have not been allowed for in the plan. Shimpling needs a more sensitive plan
