OBJECT Mr & Mrs Heather & Michael Earey

Summary:

*Option to protect retail facilities in smaller towns/villages which would appear to be an appropriate policy. However how or what that might amount to is unclear.

Representation ID: 8007

COMMENT Mr Peter Powell

Summary:

Comparison retail is best located in town shopping centres which is very limited so any mixed use should retain the ground floor shop frontage

Encouraging Convenience and Leisure into Retail / Leisure Parks might free up retail space to develop town centre shopping areas. These could be incorporated into Mixed use. However not if available space still in town centres.

A housing/retail mix would be inappropriate near town centre retail but might be appropriate in a community without retail facilities

COMMENT Stowmarket Society (Mr Michael Smith)

Summary:

We are aware that there is a site off Prentice Road in Stowmarket that has an historic permission for retail warehouse use, and that the book value of this has precluded others from coming forward. The site is not attractive for such a use, being in a cul-de-sac, isolated from other shopping facilties. We would like to see the site developed as part of a Station quarter development of mixed uses.
