Representation: A close knit village with pending re-development of vast brown field site already in progress. Local infrastructures will not cope with planned developments let alone this extra development. Road commute journeys across the Colne River are already to capacity with lengthy delays and a EU measured environmental pollution. Traffic count past local primary schools will increase with an correlative accident probability. Cross-road at the old Walnut Tree pub will become an accident hotspot. Fresh water run off into Birch Brook from this development will increase flooding risk downstream. As a Westerly side valley village roof lines will obscure evening sky.
