Representation 222 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr R E COX

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Dedham and Dedham Heath, SS6: Dedham Heath Housing Sites
Representation: Proposals to schedule three greenfield sites within the AONB and within a short distance of each other in Dedham Heath is not sensible or equitable planning.
The validity of the assessment process leading to these sites being recommended is questioned. Several constraining factors have been identified in the SLAA but questionable mitigations are used to recommend the sites.
Drainage (surface and foul water) problems affecting the Heath and centre of Dedham, lack of capacity at the local GP surgery, and the major impact on the area's and the AONB's landscape character or setting should be sufficient to exclude these sites.
