Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0699 - Land to the north west of Elizabeth Way,
OBJECT Paul & Alison Green and 1 other
We have lived at this property for over 11 years and have enjoyed using the land behind us recreationally all year round. Our neighbour also uses the field for recreation. Often in the summer local children utilise the space for playing. We also use it for dog walking. It also provides a lovely backdrop to our property and this would be ruined by houses overlooking our property. We therefore strongly object to plans to develop. Keep this area as 'green open space' for locals.
SUPPORT Mrs Helen Lang
Please keep this green area for the children and wildlife. This is the only area left now since Phase 6C has started. Wildlife have been moved off the development site and this is the only area left to them, before they disappear for good. Children need safe areas to play in and let off steam, so please consider this when further development of the town is presented.
SUPPORT Mr Peter Xavier
I add my support to this site being listed as 'not suitable for development'.
This land is needed for children and adults alike and is well used.
It is a much needed natural area that is both safe (no roads and no water ways) and local (walking distance; with young children). Access to the site is limited, but that illustrates how converting this area for dwellings is unfeasible as well as unsuitable.
SUPPORT Mrs Paula Mayhew
Research has proven the importance of outdoor activities for children and adults alike. People living in this area are surrounded by a concrete jungle with the exception of this natural playground and it's wonderful woodland to explore. Also, bats and hedgehogs are prevalent in this area. Stowmarket is fast running out of these oases of natural beauty. Please protect this site and designate it a 'green open space' to benefit the local community.
SUPPORT Mr Jonathan Dickie
Support this site being listed as 'not suitable'
Please do not build on this playing field as it is the last remaining green area in a concrete jungle. There are already too many houses crammed into a small area. If this field is built on it will be lost forever and children will have another excuse to adopt sedentary hobbies rather than being outside and playing.
SUPPORT Mr Mark Miller
This small area of green space is significant, as it is the only remaining green area available to the public in an already densely populated area, that has been heavily developed in recent years.
Please designate this area as a green, open space.
SUPPORT Miss Cheryl Ratcliffe
Support this site being listed as 'not suitable for development'
Please leave this as a green space
