Representation 1210 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs P Whytock

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Dedham and Dedham Heath, SS6: Dedham Heath Housing Sites
Representation: It is hard to understand why CBC is supporting development in AONB ( which it has an obligation to conserve) when there are many other sites outside. If planning is given it sets a precedent which is contrary to policy. Dedham Heath is well known to have serious surface water drainage issues as several houses are regularly flooded so any more development will only worsen this situation. The sites along Long Road East would create ribbon development which would completely change the rural character of the area.
