Representation 161 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Shannon Barnes

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Langham, SS11: Langham
Representation: The position of the 2 large sites are not suitable considering the road and traffic.
The school could not cope with the added intake.
Residents of Langham wishing to develop their land should be given consideration not just one family.

Original submission

It was made very clear by Langham residents in the housing questionnaire issued in October 2015 that where Langham had need of more housing it did not support large developments. 55 and 60 houses are estates and large developments on an already very busy road, HGV vehicles constantly using this road to the commercial site, delivering to the local shop and the 2 schools. plus the massive increase in home deliveries by supermarkets and on line shopping. Parking is already a problem during school dropping off and collecting times and I do not believe the school has the capacity to take on the possible amount of extra children that could come from 125 new dwellings in Langham. It also appears that no consideration has been given to all the other sites that have been submitted by mainly residents of Langham which would cause less of a change to the village life we all enjoy. All 3 sites chosen belong to the same family!
