Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0071 - Land west of The Slade, Claydon (site 1)
COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)
Grade I Church of St Peter lies between this site and SS0137
OBJECT Claydon Parish Council (Mrs Gail Cornish)
SS0071 border Church Lane currently has open views, opposite the Church again changing the rural environment. Assess would be via Church lane already a dangerous overloaded road at peak time with dangerous bends but is also part of connecting bridleways and footpaths. Any additional traffic would result in grid lock but also prohibit its use for any recreational activities, with all the associated negative consequences. There is inadequate infrastructure roads/schools and severe parking problems at existing shops and village hall.
OBJECT John Tuppen
SS0071 currently has open views, but has more serious problems with traffic issues. Assess would be via Church lane a single track lane which is already in severe overload, has many dangerous bends but is also part of connecting bridleways and footpaths. Any additional traffic would result in grid lock but also prohibit its use for any recreational activities, with all the associated negative consequences. There is inadequate infrastructure roads/schools and severe parking problems at existing shops and village hall.
If the above issues could be resolved it would be more acceptable.
OBJECT Mr John Holloway
OBJECT mr James Warnes
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.
SUPPORT Mr Peter Avis
The Slade is already a road to facilitate access to the dwellings in existence.
To allow this development is a natural expansion and one that would allow emergency vehicles a easy route onto any housing development.
The entry from Ely Road is narrow and would not easily support any development of this site. To allow dual access would assist with vehicle traffic.
OBJECT Matt Stewart
Not opposed to some new houses but the potential for 2000 would turn Claydon into a town and not a village. The high street is already clogged and schools are already over subscribed (since the Blakenham expansion) - I believe my two daughters education suffers as a result. Claydon does not have the infrastructure.
