Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0164 - Land south of Pesthouse Lane and land west of Norwich Road, Barham
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.
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.
