Representations on Preferred Options Local Plan - OV1: Development in Other Villages and Countryside

Representation ID: 3142

OBJECT Gladman Development (Mr P Isherwood)

Summary:

See submission for full text. Summary of points raised:
The policy should be reworded so as not to arbitrarily restrict suitable development from coming forward on the edge of settlements. Loss of countryside should be weighed against the need for new housing. The second part of the policy is restrictive in relation to development which is not 'small scale'. For example the policy does not differentiate between new housing on the edge of a hamlet and new housing on the edge of Colchester. Gladman believe the policy should be clarified otherwise it would be unsound.

OBJECT Dedham Vale Society (Mr J R Drury)

Summary:

Policy OV1: Development in Other Villages and Countryside - is a concern that it appears to support "new infill Developments" which could lead to coalescence between villages e.g. Great Horkesley and Nayland which would be highly damaging to the countryside. The previous Plan specifically excluded such coalescence and the concept of building on garden/back land which could be very harmful to our rural villages.

COMMENT Mr Craig Dobson

Summary:

Any development of small villages should be restricted to an absolute minimum. We must retain the green areas and farmland that form part of the village structure. Sites such as the Roman River should also be given full protection as they are of great importance and need to be conserved.
