Representation 2407 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Loess Overbury-Tapper

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Birch, SS2: Land East of Birch Street
Representation: Concerns that the village lacks infrastructure to support new housing. For example the school is at capacity and the village shop and doctor's surgery have closed. Furthermore the local bus service is under threat. The location of the housing would be unsightly.

Original submission

The plan would seem to drop new houses into one of the most attractive parts of the village into open fields where there is currently little housing, therefore unsightly.

More importantly, however, is the fact that the school is already overflowing and could not take additional children. We have also just lost our doctor's surgery and village shop so we have no infrastructure to support this. We also understand that our bus service is under threat.

Whilst we understand that housing is in short supply, could we please request a more logical location for new building.
