I object to the proposal to develop the land to the south of Battleswick Farm, Rowhedge Road on a number of points:
1-Rowhedge has already received developed which appears disproportionate over recent years (the size of the village has been increased significantly by the development along the river and on the Dock site) which has not been matched by an noticeable investment in the infrastructure. I believe that further population increase will be unsustainable and overburden the existing infrastructure - most notably the school - which has limited potential for expansion.
2-The status of Rowhedge as a village distinct of the Colchester conurbation will be undermined by development towards Old Heath.
3-Overall the transport links towards the village are already generally poor, and do not support sustainable options for transport in general - the overall routes through Colchester to the East are poor and further population growth is therefore inappropriate.
4-To use existing farmland for housing development in this way is inappropriate - particularly in a context such as this where it provides a limited barrier between a village and a much larger settlement,
