Representation 107 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Ms Susan Allen

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge, SS14: Land to the south of Battleswick Farm Rowhedge Road
Representation: The consultation is not inclusive - it only allows for on line comments at its presentations.
The information on the Travel to Work Patterns was distorted a) because it was taken from the 2011 consensus and b) because it included Harbour - an area 2 miles from Rowhedge along the river's edge, where there is a totally different lifestyle and work pattern.
The info gained from our Village Plan shows that out of 196 respondents 92% travel to work by car, motorbike or scooter.... our village infrastructure will be overwhelmed by more properties and residents.

Original submission

I attended the 'consultation' held at Rowhedge Village Hall yesterday and there were not facilities to provide written feedback/comments!
The information on the Travel to Work Patterns was distorted a) because it was taken from the 2011 consensus and b) because it included Harbour - an area 2 miles from Rowhedge along the river's edge, where there is a totally different lifestyle and work pattern.
The info gained from our Village Plan shows that out of the 196 respondents 92% travel to work by car, motorbike or scooter.... The addition of 60 more homes, to the 256 already approved on the Wharf Development and the further 146 built in Rowhedge since 2003 means our roads, school and Drs surgery will reach breaking point.
