Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0736 - Land north of Tostock Road
COMMENT Beyton Parish Council (Ms Adele Pope)
Currently there is one site identified (ref.SS0736). The site was previously a horticultural business and currently has reverted to a paddock and stable. (query change of use)
Access to the site, could be problematic given the restricted sightlines. There is a serious problem with speeding traffic notwithstanding the site being within the 30mph restricted speed zone.
This site is outside the proposed boundary and would not support large scale development. Any development here should not be a gateway to further development extending to the A14.
COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)
Only one site is being considered for allocation in Beyton. It is a small site on the
eastern edge of the existing settlement. The majority of the Village benefits from
conservation area designation and the proposed site is partially located within this
conservation area. The Grade II listed Grange Farmhouse sits to the immediate
north-east of the site. The presence of these heritage assets and their settings
should be considered carefully as part of the site allocation process.
OBJECT Mr Brett Allum
Grange Hill Cottage currently shares the access to Nursery House which has been put forward as a proposed site for future development. We reiterate the view of the parish council that this site is not suitable for development on any scale and is outside of the proposed new settlement boundary.
Since the development site has reverted from a horticultural business to a paddock/stable, it could be questioned how the access to the site can remain to be classed as 'commercial'. Maybe the council could clarify this point in detail for any such proposal.
SUPPORT Mr Graham Jones
There is one site SS0736 identified for Beyton. The site was previously an horticultural business and has recently reverted to a paddock and stable. Access to the site, if developed could be problematic given the restricted sightlines. Also there is a serious problem with speeding traffic here. ( data from SID system ). Should the site be developed road safety would have to be addressed.
My main concern regarding allowing development of this site would be it may extend into large scale development of the fields to the north and east extending to the A14.
SUPPORT Dr Tanna represented by Evolution Town Planning (Mr David Barker)
This former plant nursery site, has an existing commercial access onto Tostock Road. The site lies adjacent to Beyton's Settlement Boundary. Beyton is part of the highly sustainable Thurston Functional Cluster of villages and is within 6 miles of Bury St Edmunds. The development of the site would have no impact on heritage assets, protected trees or species and is not within a flood zone or protected landscape. Combined these factors make this an ideal site for housing for up to 10 dwellings in the Joint Local Plan site allocations plan.
COMMENT Mr J Rapley
Any development on this identified site should be limited due to the issue of access and the current volume of traffic on Tostock Hill.
Proposed development in adjacent villages will increase the volume of traffic using this road and make access to and from the proposed site more hazardous.
