I note that National Planning Policy Framework does not mention 'settlement boundaries;' Instead, national guidance dictates that isolated homes should be avoided. We are the last house in our lane not an isolated house. Every other house in our lane is inside the settlement boundary (which is placed across our front gate). This goes against national guidance as we are not an isolated house, we have the same access road as all other houses in our lane, and next doors front gate is only about 5 ,metres from our own.
We should be included in the Haughley green settlement .

Change suggested by respondent:

The settlement boundary should be amended to include our house as it includes all other houses in our road. Our lane is the only access to our house, we are not an isolated property as we are in the same road as about 20 other houses.
I do not understand how it can be said that our lane (the only access to our property) is part of the settlement area, but then not include a property that is only accessible from that lane. Surely that alone makes it part of the settlement of haughley green?

We are surrounded by fields on 3 sides; the outer edge of our property should become the far boundary of Haughley green not our front gate.

The JLP is not effective or consistent with national policy. Whilst I support the designation of Haughley Green as a Hamlet and the reinstatement of a settlement boundary, the settlement boundary provides little opportunity for infill development as proposed by policy LP01. There is no point a settlement boundary and a policy that allows infill is there is not space within the settlement boundary within which infill development can take place. The policy and settlement boundary for Haughley Green is therefore unsound.

Change suggested by respondent:

I consider that the settlement boundary for Haughley Green should be extended to incorporate the land shown edged red on the attached plan. The land in question is contiguous with the settlement boundary and could be developed with a range of housing types including smaller homes and bungalows without having any material adverse impact on residential amenity, highway safety, visual amenity, wildlife or any other interest of acknowledged importance.
