Representation 2216 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Braiswick Residents Association (Mr Robert Waites)

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, West Bergholt, SS16: West Bergholt
Representation: The draft Local Plan wishes to avoid development on land to the south of the West Bergholt to avoid 'inter-visibility' between Colchester and West Bergholt (policy 6.210). However will not the proposed development of St Botolph's Farm have a similar effect (Policy NC3)?

Original submission

The policy aimed at preventing the coalescence of settlements so as to retain their distinctive character etc. is to be welcomed. However this has been the policy of Colchester Borough Council for many years which unfortunately seems to have had little effect. Hence Great Horkesley, Stanway, Copford, Marks Tey, Eight Ash Green and West Bergholt are in effect part of Greater Colchester with little and diminishing separation.
