Representation 1750 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Martine Green

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge, SS14: Land to the south of Battleswick Farm Rowhedge Road
Representation: I feel Rowhdge has already taken more that its fair share of development with its inevitable effects on the school, surgery, wildlife, flooding, traffic congestion, parking, light pollution and object to the inclusion of Battleswich Farm into the Local Plan.

Original submission

I am writing to voice my objection to the inclusion of Battleswick Farm into the local plan. To build on productive farmland should not even be considered an option. With the school and Doctors Surgery already full and that's before any of the 256 houses are occupied on the former dock site and with a further 200 to follow on that site when Hills and Mersea Homes build their quota this can not be sustainable. Please do not come up with the option of building a new school and surgery on yet more of our precious farmland. I should think most people are getting pretty fed up with Colchester and surrounding areas being turned into a huge building site for the gain of a few land owners and developers and to dig successive governments out of a hole of their own making.
