Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0076 - Land to the north of Church Lane, Barham

Representation ID: 12955

COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)

Summary:

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.

Representation ID: 12285

OBJECT Mrs Susan Edwards

Summary:

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)

Summary:

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.

COMMENT Cllr John Field

Summary:

Development of this site provides significant challenge to the road capacity to access local facilities such as the schools and shops but the major issue is that of access to the A14, the county town and employment site both locally towards Great Blakenham and Ipswich. The A14 junction is close but accessed via a narrow high street with some listed and some Victorian housing. This area is currently congested at peak times and a substantial increase in housing will bring long delays

Representation ID: 6816

OBJECT Barham Parish Council (Mrs Joanne Culley)

Summary:

Barham Parish Council supports small scale developments of 10 to 20 houses that are sustainable and over time can become an integral part of the existing village. All developments must have additional infrastructure such as roads, water and sewerage, public services etc provided at the same time to ensure any impact is minimised.
As a Parish Council we are opposed to developments that are larger than 20 - 30 houses as they will destroy the current rural feel to the village.
All developments should respect and enhance the existing environment taking account of wildlife havens footpaths etc.

Representation ID: 2713

OBJECT Mr John Holloway

Summary:

Below church through Sandy Lane used by mainly commuters from Cambridge and London, no time for interest in village life. Access to Old Norwich Road will cause difficulty for exists from existing exits.

Representation ID: 1795

OBJECT mr John Dennis

Summary:

Farm land if developed for housing is lost forever at a time when being able to produce enough food without relying on imports is so important.Farm land also provides a good habitat for insects and wild life,a recent survey by RIS found a dramatic decline in pollen carrying insects.
Housing development on such a large scale creates enormous demands on the existing infrastructure which is inadequate and requires a commitment to provide new roads large enough to cope with new levels of traffic and provide adequate parking.
NHS hospitals under pressure need more support not more demands.

OBJECT mr James Warnes

Summary:

Houses in Claydon

To Try and develop that amount of houses in Claydon and Barham must be ludicrous
The road infrastructure in both Villagers is inadequate
All the developments are on the outskirts of the villages, so as traffic comes through the village at peak times the main street will be like Piccadilly circus.
It is bad enough now with most of the traffic from the new housing in Blakenham.
There is only one way in and out of Claydon to the main road (A14) and it gets very busy at the interchange at peak times at the moment.
