Representation 1767 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Philip Williams

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Langham, SS11: Langham
Representation: The village supports and welcomes proportional development
125 new properties in a village with 419 existing properties is not proportional
105 in School Lane is too dense
The proposal shoehorns a suburban development into a village environment. This provides none of the benefits of suburban life whilst substantially eroding the current village life.
The PC understands the boroughs needs, expressed these to the village residents who responded very positively, yet the Borough (who are elected to represent the people) proposes to overrule.
Reduce the overall expansion to 85 as the village and PC have proposed.

Original submission

The village supports and welcomes proportional development. 125 new properties in a village with 419 existing properties is not proportional
10 new properties in Wick Road seems fine.
105 in School Lane is too much.
The fragile nature of the existing road and water infrastructure cannot accommodate this level of increase
The essence of rural village life starts eroding when dense housing is introduced. People choose whether to live in the country or a town with the benefits of each. The proposal shoehorns a suburban development into a village environment. This provides none of the benefits of suburban life whilst substantially eroding the current village life.
The PC understands the boroughs needs, expressed these to the village residents who responded very positively, yet the Borough (who are elected to represent the people) proposes to overrule.
Reduce the overall expansion to 85 as the village and PC have proposed.
