Representation: Prime farm land should stay that way .Our green land is so precious to us, isn't there any brown land available for development. Lack of infrastructure ,schools and doctors surgery are full, When wharf development is complete, 300 homes could add an extra 1000 cars to the local roads. The effects this proposed development will have on wildlife, parking, light pollution. Flooding is a huge concern. I ask you consider rejecting any application for land on Battleswick Farm being incorporated in the Local Plan

Original submission

I am writing to object to land at Battleswik Farm being incorporated in the Local Plan. This is prime farm land and should stay . It is necessary that all fields and green areas need to be built upon? I wonder where the pride in our beautiful English countryside has gone? Our green land is so precious to us, in all of the UK, not just in this area. isn't there brown land available for development? My prime concern in Rowhedge is lack of infrastructure . The schools in the area are full. The doctors surgery is full. Our roads are already very busy and will become even more so when the wharf development is complete. 300 homes could add an extra 1000 cars to local roads. Has any thought been given to the effects this proposed development will have on wildlife, parking, light pollution etc, flooding is a huge risk in this area. the problem in the village and Im certain that residents in Hillview Close will have made their concerns on this potential problem, pretty clear to the powers that be. I ask you to consider rejecting any application for land on Battleswick Farm being incorporated in the Local Plan
In hope

Gillian McKenzie
