Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0551 - Land to the east of Norwich Road,
COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)
Barham 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 Mrs Susan Edwards
The amount of development to extend our village will impact on:-
The extra traffic on already busy roads through Claydon village which is already congested. Going out towards Henley are country lanes not suitable for an extra 1,000 homes with about 2,000 cars.
The sewers are old and has broken down recently and Anglia Water says it will not cope as it is.
The village will double with no extra facilities i.e. larger doctors, community centre, schools and shops. Parking by the facilities we have is already a problem. Keep the fields for crops not houses.
SUPPORT Pigeon Investmenrt Management (Mr. Andrew Fillmore) represented by Beacon Planning Ltd (Ms Sophie Pain)
Proposals at a very initial stage but will comprise new homes and community hub to
potentially include pre-school and primary school site (if not included under 1856/17), new community building, and small scale business and employment
COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)
The Grade I Registered Park and Garden (RPAG) of Shrubhall Hall, a historic country estate comprising a grade II* country house within a grade I registered landscape, lie to the north of the existing settlement adjacent to sites SS0104, SS0164, SS0551 and SS0076, to the south lies the Grade I listed Church of St Mary. There is concern that the allocation of these sites would erode the rural setting of the Church of St Mary and the setting of the Shrubland Hall RPAG which is already at risk and appears on the 2017 Heritage at Risk register. The open landscape setting is an important aspect.
At this stage we have concerns regarding these allocations but without knowing the quantum or nature of development it is not possible to provide more detailed comments. Heritage Impact Assessments would be useful. This would identify the mitigation measures required.
OBJECT Cllr John Field
Allocation of this area would result in the need for substantial and probably impossible improvements to local infrastructure.
The local primary school capacity requirements would exceed current expansion plans and the maximum size considered acceptable in Suffolk.
Road congestion on the vital links to Great Blakenham and Ipswich employment areas would be unreasonable and in areas where engineering solutions are impossible.
OBJECT Claydon Parish Council (Mrs Gail Cornish)
Claydon Parish council would object to development on this land as the number of properties proposed will
1)Be too much for the road infrastructure and there is no way to develop due to rural area
2) Same applies to schools and parking for shops
3) Spoil the very rural mature of Claydon/Barham that we are desperate to protect
4) Total would have a detrimental impact on Community and the Hub of a villages.
OBJECT John Tuppen
SS0551 and SS0076 are GREEFIELD if fully developed would severely restrict the existing open views currently experienced from the eastern side. The sites should be reduced to that offered in the May 2017 SHLAA draft before even being considered. There is inadequate infrastructure roads/schools and severe parking problems at existing shops and village hall. A smaller area may be acceptable,
