Representation ID: 8442

COMMENT Sproughton Parish Council (Mrs Susan Frankis)

Summary:

Call for sites didn't appear to bring forward any retail sites so if the need is identified then some of the commercial employment over provision could be reallocated. Comparison retail shopping is better in town centres to compliment and enhance the shopping experience.
Don't agree with defining shopping boundaries in smaller towns as to do so may restrict strategic or natural growth.
The provision of retail uses in district centres must be subject to local needs.
D1, D2 uses are better grouped outside retail centres of towns to create leisure park areas. A1, A5 uses need protecting in villages.

SUPPORT Mr Peter Powell

Summary:

Town centre space for Comparison retail could be created by encouraging Convenience retail into Retail Parks close to parking, and leisure like climbing/bouldering walls, children's play facilities / bowling / cinema's / restaurants Swimming pools etc. into Leisure Parks in appropriate locations. These parks could use commercial site allocations.

COMMENT Mr John Kitson

Summary:

With regard to the Sproughton area, I would say probably not. It is, however, interesting that this group includes leisure activities like gyms. There are a number of such businesses around Ipswich on out of town sites which seems to suggest that as being the preferred position

Representation ID: 2183

COMMENT Mr. A. Breen

Summary:

The greatest asset of living in both Babergh and Mid Suffolk is the access to extensive areas of countryside the sprawl of estates added to the fringes of key market towns is damaging such links with the countryside. Cities such as Cardiff have extensive park land that allow residents to escape the urban surroundings. There is a proposal under Needham to include a site which is in Barking and adjoins Long Plantation for housing this is area should be retained as park.

Representation ID: 2063

COMMENT Mrs Kathie Guthrie

sustaining those sites already in existence is a pull on funding. You can start something but the funding to keep it going is harder to attain.

Representation ID: 817

COMMENT Supporters Against Fressingfield Expansion (SAFE) (Dr John Castro)

Summary:

This is very difficult to answer and depends on individual sites. In Framlingham there have been major housing developments without additional parking in the town centre. Less people now shop in Framlingham because of the parking problems. These developments have negatively impacted on the local economy, so in Framlingham retail and parking probably should have been included in the call for sites.

COMMENT Mr Ben Gilligan

Summary:

Leisure use is absolutely, entirely and completely essential to the economic future of the region. The trend of decline of high street retail will almost certainly continue.

In the 10 years from 1995 to 2005 house price growth (a strong indicator of economic performance) in Babergh out stripped St Edmundsbury by 16%. In the following 10 years St Edmundsbury outstripped Babergh by 10%. A 26% swing against Babergh. In 2005 the Bury St Edmunds leisure development was completed. Haverhill's leisure complex was also completed in that 10 year period.
