Representation 90 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Richard Helliwell

Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Rowhedge, SS14: Land to the south of Battleswick Farm Rowhedge Road
Representation: Rowhedge already has two large developments under way that are set to increase the size of the village by a third. This additional development will place an additional burden on the already over capacity infrastructure . Furthermore it will erode the green belt that separates the village from Colchester and will no doubt be seen as opening the opportunity for further development in this greenfield area. I am also concerned that the existing entrance to Battleswick farm is narrow and will be difficult to open into a safe entrance without significantly damaging historic buildings, trees and hedgerows.
