Representation 185 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr MARTIN HALL

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge, SS14: Land to the south of Battleswick Farm Rowhedge Road
Representation: I genuinely believe Rowhedge and its infrastructure simply cannot cope with another development such as this. Both the school and doctors surgery are already at capacity. The brook at Hillview Close already floods residents gardens after heavy rainfall and the run off from an additional 60 houses and access roads will only compound the issue. I cannot see how you can 'improve pedestrian connectivity' when it does not exist in the first place. Surely all 'brown field' sites (Abbots Road Co-op site?) should be considered before destroying viable, valuable and sustainable agricultural land and associated wildlife habitat. I strongly object.
