Representation 897 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Francis Wadley

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge, SS14: Land to the south of Battleswick Farm Rowhedge Road
Representation: As a resident of Rowhedge, and a native-borne Colcestrian, I consider this proposed development an unwarranted waste of valuable agricultural land, which will expand our village towards Colchester and no doubt form a toehold for joining the two in future.
We already have a considerable quantity of brownfield land, on which residential development is already taking place, which, although justifiable, will put very considerable strain on our local infrastructure. Our school, our surgery, our roads, are already full, and it occurs that with the 250-odd dwellings scheduled to be built, Rowhedge has perhaps suffered enough.
