I fully support a new development in the village.
I feel it is important the houses fit into the village but are not huge 4 and 5 bedroom houses.
There are many people and families, old and young who are having to move away from the village because there aren't enough smaller properties for either the older generation to downsize to or for young families to move into that they can afford.
For example-i live in Layer with my partner and 2 children. We have lived here for 5 + years, prior to this I was in Abberton. My partner works in the village and my children go to the school and pre school and childcRe is also close by. we currently rent but will be forced to move out of the village due to high rent increases and high property prices.
There is very little help for a family in my situation, who don't claim benefits, but work hard, but are unable to save a deposit whilst playing out over half a page in rent.
A number of the properties should be available as shared ownership or council housing but for people with connections to Layer.
