COMMENT Mr Nigel Sagar


The interpretation of settlement boundaries needs further thought in order to achieve the best for residents. It may be in the best interests of villagers to expand a settlement boundary e.g using land adjacent to brownfield, to then change use of combined brownfied and small pockets of agricultural land rather than inappropriately causing permanent damage to land which contributes to village heritage and amenity such as Hall Road Copford. The inclusion of such amenities, even in options, blights the adjacent properties for residents

COMMENT Cllr Peter Chillingworth


As ward councillor for Rural North, I agree with much of this part of the policy, except that where off lying areas of village housing, such as Lower Green and Inworth Lane in Wakes Colne and other small hamlets where there are gaps between houses and it would be reasonable to treat these as infill, these could be allowed. There is such a situation in Inworth Lane.
