Representation 4 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mrs Gillian Flack

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Langham, SS11: Langham
Representation: The proposed School Road developments are much too big for a small village.

Original submission

Whilst we approve of ribbon type development of smaller starter and family homes in Langham, we do not wish to see 2 developments in School Road totaling 115 dwellings for the following reasons: -
1. An urban style development is totally our of character to the village.
2. The proposed developments would increase the number of dwellings in Langham by almost a third
3. 115 dwellings would mean at a minimum 115 extra cars - probably many more - on the small roads in the village
4.. The proposed developments are opposite the Primary School and next to a light industrial area. These 2 places already produce heavy traffic in the village.
5. The infrastructure of Langham could not cope with a huge increase in population.
6. There is very limited employment in Langham so all the new residents would have to commute along country lanes to their places of work.
