Representation: Hawfinch Road is already to busy. Traffic calming is essential.

Original submission

I have lived in Layer since I was 5 and accept more houses are needed. I am however deeply concerned that vehicle access will only come via Hawfinch Rd. I live on Hawfinch Rd and have 2 children under 3. The speed and volume of traffic is already of great concern. Several times I have had to pull my eldest back from the pavement as cars travelling at speed enter and exit the estate. Traffic calming measures are an absolute must, or vehicle access to The Folley. I feel that no considering The Folley as road access when it is the shortest route into town is silly at best. If my children are exposed to a greater risk than at present I will take any action available to me to ensure poor planning decisions are held to account, and I am sure I will not be alone in this.
