Representation:
Proposals for Achnacone Drive will significantly increase traffic- road has only been built to serve a cul-de-sac. The exit to the main road ie Bergholt Road is already a dangerous junction being very close to a blind bend in the country direction

The total (88 dwellings on 3 sites) will be detrimental to the character of this area, greatly increasing traffic and disturbing wildlife.

Also have to consider the appreciable disturbance and noise that inevitably accompanies any building site

development on this scale is not appropriate for this part of Colchester and would emphasise the necessity to protect the countryside

Original submission

Dear Sirs ,
I am resident at 14 Achnacone Drive. Colchester CO45AZ and wish to make the following observations concerning the Emerging Local Plan for 2017-2032.
It appears that no fewer than three developments numbering up to 88 new homes are proposed to the north of Bergholt Road.
I submit that development on this scale
will be detrimental to the character of this area, greatly increasing traffic and disturbing wildlife.
The housing proposed for Achnacone Drive will significantly increase traffic in a road which has only been built to serve a cul-de-sac. The exit to the main road ie Bergholt Road is already a dangerous junction being very close to a blind bend in the country direction.
Furthermore, we have to consider the appreciable disturbance and noise that inevitably accompanies any building site.
The exit road for the development next to the A12 would similarly join a dangerous stretch of Bergholt Road , and the constant noise of the A12 would be very unpleasant.
All in all I do not consider development on this scale is appropriate for this part of Colchester and would emphasise the necessity to protect our precious countryside.
I would be grateful if these views can be recorded.
