Representation 1714 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Paul Bowtell

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge, SS14: Land to the south of Battleswick Farm Rowhedge Road
Representation: 1. Pressure upon an already stretched infrastructure.
2. Access taking away more land to the Old Heath side of the proposed development.
3. Increased traffic on Rowhedge Road.
4. Inevitable follow through that the whole of the land between Old Heath and Rowhedge will be built upon

Original submission

I object to this development given that Rowhedge has already acccepted 300 new dwellings in the process of being built as the Rowhedge Wharf Development.
No consideration was given to the infrastructure needs of this extra population and the same applies to the proposed Battlewick Farm. The Surgery and the local School cannot cope with the increase in demand.
Access is limited down the Battlewick Farm track and inevitably there would be the need to take some of the land to Old Heath side of the track to create sufficient access.
There will also be an increase in traffic on an already main route into Rowhedge.
It can only be seen that the acceptance of this application for 60 houses would open the floodgate to allow the whole of the area between Old Heath and Rowhedge to be built upon.
