Representation 156 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Ms Anne Jones

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge, SS14: Land to the south of Battleswick Farm Rowhedge Road
Representation: 1. Rowhedge already has substantial development underway on brownfield sites, which very soon will increase our population by a third and put our infrastructure (already at capacity) under severe strain.There is insufficient resource to support further development.
2. This proposal is to build on a greenfield site. Ancient fields, hedgerows and trees, relied upon by protected wildlife, will be irretrievably lost through the development of both site and access route.
3. Development of this site will eat into greenbelt between Colchester and surrounding villages. Initial erosion like this could be the thin end of the wedge.
