Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0843 - land south east of Finningham Road
OBJECT Mr & Mrs R. Siger
Site is agricultural land, outside the settlement boundary.
Close to several Grade II listed buildings and would spoil the rural and unspoilt approach to the village. Permission was refused a few metres away was refused (3094/16) for several reasons, including that it would erode the isolated and rural setting of a Grade II listed farmstead and the intrinsic character of the countryside.
On a stretch of road that floods badly after heavy rain. Floodwater collects nearby, and takes several hours to drain as there is no ditch. Building will make the problem worse, possibly flooding our garden.
On a very sharp narrow bend with limited visibility.
COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)
Two sites are being considered at Gislingham. Both sites are in close proximity to a
number of Grade II listed buildings. The presence of these heritage assets and their
settings should be considered carefully as part of the site allocation process.
OBJECT Mr Gordon Lowery
We object because:
* It represents encroachment into open countryside
* It will adversely impact rural and heritage setting of the village which features Grade II listed assets 50M away.
* Little or no economic benefit to local area residents or businesses.
* Increased car commuter traffic will need go through the village centre, or head south either via Back Street or Finningham road, both are unsuitable single track rural roads
* A "windfall" parcel of land rear of West View Gardens in Gislingham has recently (2017) been given permission for development of 40 new houses, making this proposal redundant
OBJECT Mr Scott Moore
We object to the proposal of using this land for housing development. This development is not suitable in this location and would have an inappropriate affect on the intrinsic value and character of this area of open countryside and historic buildings.
OBJECT Mr Scott Moore
We object to the proposal of using this land for housing development. This development is not suitable in this location and would have an inappropriate affect on the intrinsic value and character of this area of open countryside.
OBJECT Jonathan & Penelope Marland
We strongly disagree with the proposal to build on the green field site on entry to the village on the Finningham Road. There are multiple reasons why the proposal is not sound when there are other areas that could be used without spoiling the village beyond all measure. A more realistic site, should there have to more houses would be:
1. The enlargement of the proposal on Coldhams lane and on a westerly direction.
2. The infill of Grays Close.
OBJECT Mr Peter Rodgers
Site SS0843 is outside the proposed new settlement boundary for Gislingham, which encloses a substantial number of potentially better building sites. It is immediately adjacent to a site where a single building was rejected in September 2016 as an unsustainable form of development in open countryside which would "erode the isolated and rural setting of the Grade II listed farmstead " at Rush Green. By pushing into open, unenclosed countryside it makes an unnecessary and damaging intrusion into the well-preserved rural area that creates the attractive southern setting of Gislingham
OBJECT Mr Graham Liptrot
I object to the proposal of using this land for further housing development. The area in question is of significant historical value which would most certainly be devalued if the development was approved. Should MSDC decide that the village is to be subject of housing growth then less contentious areas need to be identified.
