Representation 444 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Alex Scott

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Dedham and Dedham Heath, SS6: Dedham Heath Housing Sites
Representation: Any future new builds should be sited where there is already housing, rather than spreading the village on to agricultural land. Site 091, at Dedham Heath, is therefore the least detrimental. And if pressure to accept more houses is overwhelming, then site 243 the next choice. But with both sites developers must agree to build smaller, more affordable units, not just expensive (and extra profitable) luxury houses. And that agreement needs to be enforced by CBC.
