Representation 3012 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Elizabeth Durlacher

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Langham, SS11: Langham
Representation: Langham Village Council suggested 85 dwellings over the length of the plan and you have come back with 125 in a much shorter period.

This proposed expansion of Langham will lead from a rural village to a satellite of Colchester urbanising the whole area which is on the edge of the Dedham Val e AONB which is to the north of the village.

The infrastructure is inadeguate for water and sewage for this density of development.

The increase in traffic will be a danger to the primary school and other houses along the road.

Original submission

I would like to object to the Preferred Options for Langham on several grounds, some of which I mention below -

Langham Village Council took a village survey of preferred views and this goes against the results, which were reported to you. We suggested 85 dwellings over the length of the plan and you have come back with 125 in a much shorter period.

This proposed expansion of Langham will lead from a rural village to a satellite of Colchester urbanising the whole area which is on the edge of the Dedham Val e AONB which is to the north of the village.

The infrastructure is inadeguate for water and sewage for this density of development.

The increase in traffic will be a danger to the primary school and other houses along the road.

The Rural character of North Essex is an important one to maintain -helping promote tourism and bringing income to the area, which depends, a lot, on being kept as a rural area and not Colchester sprawl.
