Original submission

Given that London Road is already struggling with increased local traffic due to uncontrolled parking and existing new housing sites off London road to the west of Tollgate with frequent queues onto the Tollgate roundabout, I object to the Hall Road site and have reservations about the Queensbury Road site as well.

In both cases there are concerns over access arrangements. Single site access onto London Road from Hall Road is not sensible. It is a narrow lane, part of the Roman River Conservation Area, and entirely unsuitable for frequent 2-way traffic. If this area is to be developed, then access onto London Road further west should be considered. It appears recently approved retail and future planned development at Tollgate will exacerbate the traffic problem if it is not being addressed by improving local traffic flow and enhancing cyclists and pedestrian safety!

In addition there are the water supply and waste water issues expressed by Anglian Water!

I sincerely trust, solutions to these issues will be taken seriously and have to be in place prior to any planning approval ( i.e. more than just a promises by developers).
