Representation: The suggested green field site at Battleswick Farm is considered to be entirely unsuitable for this purpose, having a considerable and demonstrable impact upon the immediate neighbours and effect upon this part of the village. Detailed consideration should be given to a more appropriate site that can offer the village those benefits that have been overlooked to date.

Original submission

Battleswick Farm, Rowhedge
The Council has identified a need for an additional 60 dwellings to be provided within Rowhedge. The suggested green field site at Battleswick Farm is considered to be entirely unsuitable for this purpose, having a considerable and demonstrable impact upon the immediate neighbours and effect upon this part of the village. The ability to ensure appropriate connectivity with the rest of the village is seriously questioned, even if the footpath link can be provided. Moreover, the suggested allocation provides no benefit to the community other than the provision of yet more housing. It is therefore recommended that detailed consideration is given to a more appropriate site that can offer the village those benefits that have been overlooked to date.
