Representation: More houses mean more cars and the pressure this will place on the bridge near to the Donkey and Buskin public house will be considerable, already the bridge is constantly being driven into. The proposed access route via the estate especially for the builders vehicles would increase traffic considerably through this area and change the dynamics totally for those residents.The Folly is an unsafe road at the best of times and so this could be made into a single one way road for builders lorries to use and then exit the village via Malting Green Rd and into High Rd.

Original submission

recorded the following views

1. I would prefer for the site to not be developed at all, obviously an open and green piece of land is better for all in the area but I accept that housing is needed and so I guess the inevitable will happen. However wherever the site is in LDLH the school and doctors surgery are already at capacity and the village cannot take more people without more support services.

4. The Folly is an unsafe road at the best of times and so this could be made into a single one way road for builders lorries to use and then exit the village via Malting Green Rd and into High Rd. It could also be kept as a one way road after work is completed

5. I would like to see a proper tree plantation scheme along the rear of Les Bois to given reasonable screening and not to rely on the trees that are currently in place.

6. I would ask that consideration is given to some open space down the rear of Les Bois between the back of the houses that face the field and the new property/garden sites.

7. This is currently a quiet and peaceful part of the community and I would like to see a development that would aim to maintain this character by attracting people that too wish for a peaceful existence. I did not buy my house for the view but I did buy it for the environmental features of peace and quiet and I would like to see this continue

8. A blend of properties such as and including bungalows would be favourable. High buildings unless well screened will destroy the area

9. With consideration to careful architectural planting and the right properties the site could be made very attractive as happened with Les Bois 27 years ago


I hope these points will help and I would appreciate an acknowledgement of them

My thanks

Nick and Jan Clarke
