Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0809 - land north of Long Thurlow Road,
COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)
There are number designated heritage assets dotted through the small hamlet of
Long Thurlow. The site allocations being considered are concentrated to the west end of the settlement. The presence of these heritage assets and their settings
should be considered carefully as part of the site allocation process.
OBJECT Anthony Pickering
1) Development of more than 30 new properties totally out of proportion within an existing settlement of no more than 80 dwellings.
2) Inappropriate in terms of extension of ribbon development.
3) Hamlet lacks all community services and facilities; is remote from shops, schools, railway station, doctors. Virtually non-existent bus service and little footway provision.
4) No adequate broadband coverage.
5) Surface water issues around site area.
6) Loss of wildlife corridor.
7) Odour problems from chicken farm.
OBJECT Mr Michael Beiley
Inappropriate as the hamlet has no facilities,no public transport,no school,no community hall,no street lighting,no broadband,no pavements and would be entirely dependent on the use of a car.
OBJECT Mrs Amanda Beckley
Location is unsuitable. No local facilities - shops, schools, doctor, buses, etc so would add to the number of vehicles on road. Only one narrow pavement and two streetlights
Development is out of scale with countryside hamlet
Impact on and loss of wildlife, trees and hedges
Irretrievable loss of arable land
Harmful intrusion in the landscape, leading to ribbon development
Very close proximity to frequent noxious smells from the chicken farm
OBJECT sarah brown
small hamlet with no facilities - no shop, bus, school, community centre, pub etc. There are no safe footpaths even to Badwell Ash. Any development would therefore rely on car-based living.
I worry that the sewerage system would be unable to cope with further development - raw sewage backed up into our garden over Christmas when many people had visitors.
Surface water flooding may be a problem with more land tarmaced over.
The chicken farm is noisy from very early in the morning, and can also be smelly - development should not happen so close to it.
OBJECT Dr Berwyn Clarke
Totally out of scope for a hamlet of this size and certainly would cause undue harm to the character of the cluster. This hamlet has no infrastructure or amenities to support any expansion and has rigidly complied with earlier planning applications to be retained within the existing boundary. As indicated in other objections this plan would severely impact on the character of the hamlet, significantly impact wildlife in the area and other nearby grey/brown field sites should be prioritised for new housing.
OBJECT Mr Henry Hurn
This site ,in our opinion, is unsuitable for development because of the noise, smell and very early morning traffic associated with the adjacent chicken farm - of which we, in our own proximity, are only too well aware.
Our comments on SS0558 are also relevant to this site re the lack of facilities and we were under the impression that the sewage and drainage systems could not cope with any large development.
OBJECT Mrs Diana Chapman
I object to the inclusion in the Local Plan, of a development allocation, of site SS0809; Land North of Long Thurlow Road, Long Thurlow for the following reasons:
1. Unsustainable Location, no local facilities and distance to towns.Would be car based.
2.Out of scale with a hamlet in the countryside. Not infill.
4.Impact on the chracter of a historic settlemnt pattern.
5.Harmful intrusion into the landscape leading to ribbon development.
6. Impact on setting of Rowan Cottage.
7. Impact on surface water flooding.
8.Loss of trees, hedgerows and wildlife corridor.
9. Potential impact of adjoining agricultural uses.
OBJECT Mr Peter Chappell
Long Thurlow is a hamlet that has no facilities to support the residents.
This includes no meaningful public transport, shops / public house or
village hall. To support such large increase in housing as is proposed
would require such facilities to be guaranteed as part of any development.
If any development is proposed this should be limited to no more than an
increase of 5 percent in housing to avoid over development.
OBJECT Mr William Kneale
1. Impacts the hamlet of Long Thurlow which locates in Badwell and Great Ashfield. Other development identified in same hamlet south of the road but in GA. Taken together scale inappropriate.
2, Hamlet has no facilities or meaningful public transport links, schools are all distant.
3. These particular parcels sit next to a busy chicken hatchery (Diaper Poultry) with heavy lorries accessing (with live cargoes), and the smells and vermin that inevitably attract to such an enterprise .....so not suitable for residential development.
NOTE - no idea what "duty to cooperate is" - so said No
