Representation 410 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Ms Julie Saunders

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge, SS14: Land to the south of Battleswick Farm Rowhedge Road
Representation: Main concerns are:
Traffic, impact on local services, reduction in green space between Colchester and the village, increased flooding on Rowhedge Road.

Original submission

My reasons for objecting are:
1. The increase in traffic on Rowhedge Road
2. A further increase in strain on local services in the village where the impact of the new 170 dwellings at the wharf has not yet been seen
3. A reduction in the green space between Colchester and the village, threatening the nature of the village and community cohesion
4. Concerns about increased flooding on Rowhedge Road at the bottom of the hill on entering the village. This road already floods quite regularly. Further run off from more properties on the hillside site of the proposed further development would increase the current flooding and put properties on the north side of Hillview Close at more risk of flooding.
