Representation: developing valuable farmland. Rowhedge GP surgery and primary school also old heath school are full to capacity. essential infrastructure has not been factored in, the site has flooding issues

Original submission

I'm writing to register my objections to the Battleswick Farm site being considered for development now and in the future.

As a nation we are developing valuable farmland which isn't there just to be pretty, it's there to produce food for the population. We must save farmland above all for future generations. There are many brown field sites which must be earmarked for future development as a priority.

Battleswick Farm has a longstanding heritage in the area, must we wipe out all evidence of our rich history forcing future generations to learn about it only from books?

Rowhedge GP surgery and primary school, also Old Heath primary school are full to capacity. This has not been provided for in the new Wharf development currently under construction let alone any future additional development.
Other essential infrastructure has not been factored in. On this site flooding is already a problem.

Yours Faithfully Margaret Rousseau
