Representation 1669 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Barbara Theobald

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - North Colchester, North Colchester Other Allocations/Policies, Land south of Braiswick Golf Club
Representation: The access appears to be unsuitable and inappropriate with road safety as an issue. The development of houses on golf club land will increase traffic to Bakers Lane and Bergholt Rd which are already congested and is contrary to the Plans core objectives.

Original submission

We object to the identified land behind our dwelling being included within the Local Plan for the following reasons:
1. the access appears to be unsuitable and inappropriate with road safety as an issue. Although there is a speed restriction on this road at the suggested site of entry, it is seldom adhered to by passing traffic rendering it as an accident waiting to happen. With the increased number of vehicles which will use this stretch of road the situation will become untenable.
2. The development of houses on golf club land will increase traffic to Bakers Lane and Bergholt Rd which are already congested and is contrary to the Plans core objectives to 'direct new development to locations which are supported by transport, community facilities and green spaces and preserve and enhance the Borough's existing natural heritage'.
