Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0904 - Land to the north of Springlands Way (A134),

Representation ID: 11266

OBJECT Suffolk Wildlife Trust (Mr James Meyer)

Summary:

It is unclear whether sites SS0811 and SS0904 are intended as extensions to the proposal or as separate developments, however it is important that the ecological receptors identified on the Chilton Woods site (including protected and UK Priority species) are assessed as part of any proposals to allocate these additional areas. Also, any development in these locations should extend the green infrastructure which is to be provided as part of the proposed development.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs M. R. Smart

Summary:

Farming will remain a key element of this counties future. I have lived in Newmans Green for the past 34 years, observing some action's of Planners and attempts by developers for the local and surrounding area's. As You are all aware. There is clear and compelling evidence of declining long term employment plus heavy mounting road congestion in rural area's.

considering any use of Mills Lane for access or otherwise, obvious to us it failed to cope safely, legally or be efficiently supervised when removing this years sugar beet crop for all others using Mills Lane then at that time.

Representation ID: 10778

OBJECT Miss Kirsty Phillips

Summary:

I strongly oppose this scheme - there is not a good road access, current employment/industrial sites within the area aren't at full capacity and we run the risk of becoming one large industrial site being visible for miles due to its location on a high plateau

Representation ID: 10185

OBJECT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

We generally consider the extent of land forming the masterplan proposals for Chilton Woods to be the limit of what could reasonably be achieved in this area. At this stage we have objections to the allocation of site SS0904* due to the impact upon the setting Long Wall

Representation ID: 10182

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

The Grade II listed Long Wall is a twentieth century property dating from 1963
located to the immediate north of the sites SS0904* and SS0297. This Grade II listed
property was designed specifically to respond to its surroundings. The rural setting is
an important element to which the design responds to and is therefore an important
aspect of its significance. The setting of this property should therefore be carefully
considered and we recommend pulling back the line of development back away from
Long Wall to provide a buffer zone between the property and the main body of the
proposed development.

If these sites are to be brought forward as part of the site allocation process it must
be demonstrated that the historic environment, the high quality heritage assets and
their settings, as well as the potential for undiscovered heritage assets in the form of
archaeology, has been considered in the allocation process.

OBJECT Acton Parish Council (Mr Paul MacLachlan)

Summary:

The Parish Council believes that both of these sites should be disregarded and has made a separate Green Buffer Zone submission on this issue.
The Council notes that these sites, although located in Long Melford, are designated to Sudbury. The Council requests that Acton Parish Council is consulted if plans emerge for these sites as development will have a marked impact on residents in Newman's Green.

OBJECT Bridget Johnson

Summary:

You must clearly understand that in addition to what will inevitably be a blight on our beautiful rural landscape, any access to this proposed development is via a single track Mills Lane. Our local road infrastructure is simply not capable of accommodating the extra volume of traffic. Site is clearly visible on its high elevation from many angles for miles around. Other factors such as the potential for increased local pollution, harmful impact upon wildlife and the negative impact upon what is essentially a retirement community.

The key determining factor for refusal of this application must be the inadequacy of our local infrastructure.

OBJECT Mrs J J Marsh

Summary:

As a resident of Newmans Green I wish to oppose this proposal in the strongest possible terms. We have been led to believe that Newmans Green would be kept completely separate from the Chilton Woods development. This new piece of land put forward goes against everything we have been previously led to believe. The only existing road access to it is from Mills Lane, which is a single-track country lane unsuitable for through traffic.

Site is on high ground, would be an eye-sore, visible in all directions. Small villages and communities should not be turned into urban sprawl, but preserved for future generations.

OBJECT Sudbury Town Council (Mrs Jacqueline Howells)

Summary:

Sudbury Town Council objects to this proposal - it is impossible to create a green belt to the north of Sudbury. Very poor access to roads and will create over use. The land is on a plateau and is clearly visible from the upper reaches of the Stour Valley and any development would blight the landscape for miles around.

OBJECT Dr David Taylor

Summary:

Outside planned boundary of Chilton Woods.
Loss of buffer zone for newmans Green.
Adverse effect on landscape, public footpath and Mills Lane designated cycle route.
Loss of prime arable land.
Completely inappropriate setting for employment development.

Representation ID: 5821

OBJECT Kevin & Angela Atkinson

Summary:

We object to the above land being used for development. The Chilton Woods Development was supposed to have a boundary where no further development would take place outside that boundary.

Potters Tye is clearly outside the boundary and if councillors are to be believe then Chilton Woods has ample area for housing, industry etc. for the foreseeable future, therefore clearly there is no need for further land to be developed.

If Potters Tye Farm is to be included we feel that this will bring all councillors good will into disrepute and the Chilton Woods Development should be scrapped, as they have misinformed all the electorate on development around Sudbury.

OBJECT Long Melford Parish Council (Mr Robert Wiliams)

Summary:

SS0904* has not been attributed to Long Melford, but is in the boundary of the parish, in an area we would like to see as a Green Buffer. This site is however preferred for employment over SS0934*, as it is understandably closer to the need, workforce and infrastructure of Sudbury. SS0934* is too large relative to the size of the village and we are not aware of any need or demand.

Representation ID: 2699

OBJECT J. D. Gregory

Summary:

The land is to the north of the Chilton Woods development and breaks the promise of Newmans Green remaining separate from the Sudbury development and being screened by trees.
Mills Lane is a narrow winding single lane road and is totally unsuitable for any additional traffic. We are concerned about increased traffic flow from Chilton Woods development. If the Sudbury sprawl is allowed to continue then Newmans Green will become a small island in a sea of over-development.

We are told farmers in this country only produce 60% of our food and this continued use of agricultural land will only create more costly problems after Brexit.

OBJECT J M Pociecha

Summary:

Mills Lane is a single track road with poor visibility in many parts along the winding lane. It is already hazardous for the tiny hamlet it serves and this scheme would endanger not only residents but also the cyclists who follow the designated route through Newmans Green.

This large scale planned development following the outlined Chilton Woods site is not in my opinion supported by the infrastructure in Sudbury.

OBJECT Mrs V.A. Succetti

Summary:

I would like to strongly object to the proposed development of land between Newmans Green and Mills Lane.
I have lived in the same house for over fifty years in that time the lane has become very busy and can be dangerous as its narrow in many places.
This lane could not cope with more traffic. Please consider this.

Representation ID: 767

OBJECT Mr. Nicholas Antill

Summary:

I wish to protest against this allocation for the following reasons:
1. Proposal is at odds with current planning application for Chilton Woods
2. Only access to Mills Lane is a narrow, winding, single lane road already suffering from overuse.
3. Community acceptance of Chilton Woods's is in part due to the fact that it sits in a natural hollow, sloping south towards Sudbury. The newly proposed site is on a high plateau, and is clearly visible from the upper reaches of the Stour Valley, blighting the landscape for miles around.

Site is entirely inappropriate for employment land.

OBJECT Linda Critchley

Summary:

The new proposed development is wrong for this area. Mills Lane is already heavy with cars cutting through at great speed. Concerned about extra traffic. Mills Lane should be cut off completely to vehicles. Access should be one way only. Cyclists, walkers, horses and dog walkers use this lane as it is the only area where these people feel safe.
I'm afraid to let my grandchildren out into the front as the cars come right up onto our grass to avoid vehicles coming the other way.

England is a small island and we cannot go on building forever.
