Representation 2173 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Margery MacNaught

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - North Colchester, NC3: North Colchester, Land north of Achnacone Drive Braiswick
Representation: Object to proposed housing on Achnacone Drive as it would entail the demolition of one of the houses to provide the stated access.

Achnacone Drive is a quiet cul-de-sac of only 19 homes. Building the suggested 30 homes at the top end would increase the number of houses by almost 200%, which would have a negative impact on the street scene and on house prices.
It is also too narrow to support the increased amount of traffic which would be engendered both after and during building.

Original submission

I wish to voice my strong objection to suggested sites for house building in Braiswick, in particular the one north of Achnacone Drive, which would entail the demolition of one of the houses to provide the stated access.

Achnacone Drive is a quiet cul-de-sac of only 19 homes, a safe and pleasant street in which to live and bring up a family. Building the suggested 30 homes at the top end would increase the number of houses by almost 200%, which would have a negative impact on the street scene we enjoy at present, and on our house prices.

It is also too narrow to support the increased amount of traffic which would be engendered both after and during building.
