Representation 2406 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Birch Parish Council (Mr Condron)

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Birch, SS2: Land East of Birch Street
Representation: Concern that the village does not have enough services to provide for additional housing including a lack of shop and doctors surgery. Furthermore the school is at capacity. Another concern is the road which is dangerous at school pick-up and drop-off times.

Original submission

My husband and I would like to express our concern regarding the local plan to build 10 to 15 houses on land behind the former doctors surgery over the next 15 years.

We both feel that Birch cannot sustain the extra houses as we do not have the following:

A doctors surgery. A shop and the school is unable to take more children let alone some of the children that live in the village that have to go to school elsewhere.

Another concern is the parking around the school when the children are being dropped off and collected. It's appalling. It is now so dangerous some one is going to get hurt or even killed as the road is not now wide enough to take the traffic. Also the ridiculous speed of the some of the traffic that drives through the village.
