Original submission

Rowhedge village is already being developed on the old docks. The roads will be put under strain with over 400 new dwellings being planned to be built without the development mentioned in this application. The infrastructure needs to be considered not just locally but on routes into Colchester town. On a number of mornings the route into town has been gridlocked as it is. The people of Rowhedge want to keep it as a village but we have accepted the building on the old docks. There is a presence of bats, which are a protected species, in the trees adjacent to/in the field. Other wildlife will also be affected including the many hedge sparrows.
