Representation 637 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr John Tavner

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Dedham and Dedham Heath, SS6: Dedham Heath Housing Sites
Representation: The three sites being proposed for development by Colchester Borough Council should be rejected because:

a) The building of new houses on either side of the Long Road will seriously damage the rural character of this part of Dedham.

b) Two of the proposed sites are actually within the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so there is no argument about their unsuitability.

c) If permission is granted for this kind of ribbon development, it will inevitably act as a 'come on' signal to developers to push for more sites in the future along this same stretch of road.
