Representation ID: 2593

OBJECT Persimmon Homes (Ms Anna Davies)

Summary:

The policy is poorly worded and not practical.
It should be more precise in terms of the nature of development that should provide green space.
'mitigation to avoid harmful emissions' is imprecise and unrealistic.
The air quality criterion lacks precision as to where such measures will be assessed. Any harm should be demonstrable, not just potential.
The fourth paragraph refers to S106 contributions but does not provide any detail as to what would trigger such contributions.

Representation ID: 2502

COMMENT Essex County Council (Matthew Jericho)

Summary:

ECC supports the inclusion of a specific policy within the Local Plan covering health and wellbeing. It is suggested that paragraph 7.2 is reworded (please see full submission for suggested text). Paragraph 7.3 should take note of HIA's wider scope and refer to the policies, guidance and information listed in the full submission. ECC also seeks clarification of who will advise and review HIA once submitted. ECC does not support the alternative options to Policy DM1 where the requirement for HIA is related to EIA development, or there is no requirement for a HIA.

Representation ID: 2499

COMMENT Myland Community Council (Mrs Harris)

Summary:

CBC only measures for one air quality factor, nitrogen dioxide. From a north Colchester point of view the existing concerns raised surrounding respiratory illnesses linked to poor air quality gives cause for concern. Myland registers above national acceptable levels and this is prior to completion of Chesterwell, Severalls phase 2 and Northern Gateway developments impacting on traffic levels through north Colchester. MCC will write further and separately on this issue.

Representation ID: 1735

COMMENT Mrs Danica Pollard

Summary:

Please include all vulnerable road users in this policy - walkers, cyclists and horse riders. Provision of off-road access for these groups, whether it is for sport, leisure or commuting to work should be a priority with the town developing at such a swift rate and our open spaces disappearing.

Representation ID: 1577

OBJECT Cheryl Damen

Summary:

Providing facilities for walking and cycling discriminates against horse riders as pedestrians and cyclists can use bridleways, but horse riders cannot use either footpaths or cyclepaths (other than in Scotland - where they can). Please rephrase such that new opportunities are for ALL vulnerable road users

Representation ID: 1559

COMMENT British Horse Society (Mrs Sue Dobson)

Summary:

We note the intention to promote healthy lifestyles and create opportunities for walking and cycling, however we request that the opportunity to provide off-road links for equestrians is also taken. Horse riding is a growing sport which is usually undertaken by women and children, two groups who are often targeted to increase their uptake of exercise, and more safe places to ride away from increasing traffic will benefit the health and wellbeing of the commmunity.

Representation ID: 1499

COMMENT Essex Bridleways Association (Susan Dobson)

Summary:

Policy DM1 Health and Wellbeing: we note that this policy aims to promote healthy lifestyles and cites the need for green space to create attractive opportunities for walking and cycling. This we fully support, but request that the opportunity to provide these links accessible to ALL vulnerable road users, including equestrians, is taken which will benefit the full range of users, including the disabled.

COMMENT Walk Colchester (Ms Rowena Macaulay)

Summary:

This would be a good place to cross-reference to the Orbital project, one of the main supporting objectives of which is to promote health and well-being by advancing walking and cycling as health and leisure activities and as alternative forms of everyday local transport?

Representation ID: 921

COMMENT Colchester Cycling Campaign (William Branhill)

Summary:

Should the Plan have a section on or mention of the application of the Equality Act and the Brown Principles? I would have thought that this is important underpinning legislation.

Representation ID: 909

COMMENT Colchester Cycling Campaign (William Branhill)

Summary:

With regard to mentions of cycling, can we stress somewhere that it is utility cycling for journeys to work, school, shopping and leisure rather than sport?
