OBJECT Suffolk Wildlife Trust (Mr James Meyer)

Summary:

Sites SS0121 and SS0937 - these sites represent large blocks of land which are likely to contain species and/or habitats of nature conservation interest. Further assessment is therefore required to determine whether development in this location is likely to result in any adverse ecological impacts.

In addition to the above, site SS0121 is bordered by the River Gipping which is a key part of the green infrastructure network in the area, it must be ensured that the river is protected from any direct or indirect adverse impacts which may result from development in the area.

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

Site SS0121 is to the south of the existing settlement of Bramford adjacent to the B113. The site is in close proximity to Grade II Runcton House, and Street Farm Cottage. The presence of these heritage assets and their settings should be considered carefully as part of the site allocation process.

OBJECT Bramford Parish Council (Mr Gareth Key)

Summary:

Oppose site in favour of alternative site (SS0478). The Plan shows several potential developments along the B1113, this is not a good road with approaches from Ipswich and through Sproughton already at breaking point. Continuing local infill developments are already leading to a significant increase in pedestrian & vehicular traffic along River Hill [Bramford] that warrants consideration for provision of traffic calming measures.

Historically there was strong opposition from within the Parish to any development along Fitzgerald Road. A petition in 2002 helped defeat an attempt to build there and the Parish Council put in its objections to the land bids in 2007-08 (a copy of this can be found at the end of the full representation). Need for a break between Sproughton & Bramford.

Representation ID: 3788

OBJECT Mr John Rhodes

Summary:

If this area is permitted for development it will be contrary to the Bramford Parish Plan of 2012. The parishioners overwhelmingly objected to development taking place along Fitzgerald Road outside of the Parish Boundary and Green Belt.
If the development is permitted it will be the start of the amalgamation of the village of Bramford with Sproughton when all parishioners wish to keep the two villages and their identity separate.

OBJECT Mr Albert Horn

Summary:

There was strong opposition from within the Parish to any development along Fitzgerald Road. The objections raised reflect our Parish Plan; in particular the need for a break between Sproughton & Bramford and the need to maintain the view across the village towards the church spire from the B1113 - the only view of its type in the village from the roads. Development on this site along the B1113 would join us up with Sproughton, especially if you consider the sites SS0711 and SS0223, which would extend Sproughton towards us. Historically Runcton was a separate hamlet between and I feel that it should provide a 'windbreak' on development along the B1113.

If site SS0478 is developed there will be no need for this site, as it would create more than enough houses.
