Original submission

This plan is totally wrong for many reasons. The VILLAGE and I stress village and NOT another dormitory suburb of Colchester, which is what it will become, is already over developed with all the brown field sites either developed or in the process of being built. These sites will almost double the population in the long run bringing with it all the infrastructure problems:-
1 Not enough school places in the local OR surrounding schools.
2 A doctors surgery already too small.
3 Traffic increases in the surrounding areas.
Next we have flooding, as Battles Brook already floods regularly, I have video of one of the latest ones which I will attach.
I assume we will also no longer see Stag Beatles on a regular basis where we live in Hillview Close, along with all the other wildlife.
Once again I reiterate this is a village which has already taken enough development.
