Representation 1445 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Julia Bentley

Representation: Local services cannot cope with further development on this scale; the doctors' surgery is overwhelmed now without adding maybe 1,000 more residents. We don't have a local police presence either. The roads are in an atrocious condition and will only get worse, as well as creating dangerous traffic levels. Both sites are in the green belt and should not be built on; this will spoil what most visitors come to see. It is doubtful that the local school could cope with an increase in numbers either, without building on the playing fields.
