Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge, SS14: Land to the south of Battleswick Farm Rowhedge Road
Representation: Our objections to building on Battleswick Farm are:
- the village infrastructure (schools, doctors, pre-school, etc) are insufficient to accommodate more residents;
- we will lose valuable farm/green belt land;
- trees and hedgerows will be demolished;
- wildlife will be affected (this week we have seen lizards, bats, deer, foxes, badgers and dormice in the field);
- Birch Brook is a Red Flag Flood Risk Zone;
- bungalows in Hillview Close will be overlooked due to gradient aspect of the field;
- Rowhedge is a village, please don't connect us to Colchester.
