Representation 1016 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Ms Sharon Mills

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge, SS14: Land to the south of Battleswick Farm Rowhedge Road
Representation: I object to this development. The village is already growing at an alarming rate, with the existing development of the Wharf (it is due to swell by almost a third). Its present infrastructure cannot cope with another development, both the school and doctors surgery are already at capacity. Rowhedge is a quintessential riverside village and its residents embrace its rich history and culture. I foresee that we are destined to become a mere suburb of Colchester and the residents of Rowhedge do not want this. Building on 'green field' sites such as Battleswick Farm impacts local life and wildlife habitat.

Original submission

As a proud resident of Rowhedge I object to this development. The village is already growing at an alarming rate, with the existing development of the Wharf (it is due to swell by almost a third). Its present infrastructure cannot cope with another development, both the school and doctors surgery are already at capacity. Rowhedge is a beautiful riverside village and its residents embrace this quintessential village life and its rich history and culture. I foresee that we are destined to become a mere suburb of Colchester and the residents of Rowhedge do not want this. Building on 'green field' sites such as Battleswick Farm impacts local life and wildlife habitat. I propose that 'brown field' sites (and there are many) should be considered before green belt areas should be proposed. I do not want this development and I object in the strongest way.
