Representation 1537 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Darren Doyle

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Langham, SS11: Langham
Representation: I must voice my disappointment regarding the proposed development of Langham. The volume and density of building within the plan shows utter disregard for the village, it's residents wellbeing & their way of life. All of which would be destroyed if this disproportionate growth were allowed. The villagers are aware of the need for new homes, in keeping with the size and character of the village. If this ill-thought-out proposal comes to fruition it will be the death knell of our village as it turns into a series of small estates, soon to merely be a suburb of Colchester.

Original submission

I am contacting you to voice my astonishment and disappointment with regard to the proposed housing development in Langham (ref: SS11). The volume and density of building within the proposed plan shows an utter disregard for the village, it's residents wellbeing & their way of life. All of which would be irreparably destroyed if disproportionate growth of this scale were allowed. The residents of Langham are fully aware of the need for some new homes, in keeping with the size and character of the village - not to satisfy CBC's building requirements for the next 30 years all in one go. There is neither the appetite or the infrastructure for such an excessive volume of houses and the accompanying exponential increase in; population, vehicle numbers, litter and pollution.

If this ill-thought-out proposal comes to any kind of fruition it will be the death knell of our village as it sharply turns into a series of small estates, soon to merely be a suburb of Colchester.
