Barrow Hill - Using farm land to build houses is extremely short sighted. With Brexit approaching, we need land to grow food. Once these houses are there, they can not knock them down. This land has been farmed for 200 years. This is really harmful and might I say, stupid!! We have homes being built everywhere. For who? The locals can not afford them.

Traffic flow:
With the possibility of an additional 100 houses and the closure of Acton lane when the development of Chilton Woods starts, will mean that traffic flow will increase through GW for Sudbury/Colchester and Ipswich. This will put pressure on Ten Trees Road, Valley Farm Road and the B1115 into Sudbury. With the choice of schools now available there could also be increased pressure when delivering to and from schools if GW was the school of choice.

Acton Parish Council requests that the Acton Settlement Boundary is redrawn to exclude the whole of the allotment gardens on Barrow Hill. Currently, part of the allotment garden sits within the settlement boundary. The allotment gardens boundary is shown on the map below bounded in red. This land is owned by Acton Parish Council.

Object to the Omission of site SS0962, Land north-west side of Sudbury Road, Acton.
Further detailed work has now gone into assessing the development potential of this site in order to demonstrate that the reason for not including the site is not justified and that the site is both available and deliverable.

Acton is a Hinterland not a core village - matrix appears to be flawed.
This proposed site sits outside the existing settlement boundary.
Land SE of Barrow Hill had already been granted outline planning permission for up to 100 homes.
Road network is not suitable for the increase of traffic this would bring. Tamage Road and Vicarage Lane are almost single track at times due to parking at roadside.
Infrastructure (water, sewage, electricity, telecommunications) already show signs of weakness - further houses would only exacerbate this problem.
School could possibly absorb children from 100 new homes, not 200.

Acton village is served only by C class roads. There are no pavements or footpaths linking to neighbouring settlements and walking is dangerous on 60mph roads.
The main sewerage/water pipe are totally inadequate and have resulted in sewage discharged from manholes. Water course No 3 has never been inspected.
The Local GP practices are oversubscribed and cannot expand on site to accommodate the additional volume of population from development.
