it is vital that any dwellings are restricted to this plot and never encroach on the public right of way and AONB field behind. This area is rich in biodiversity with old woodland and is incredibly popular with residents and other dog-walkers. Holbrook will struggle to cope with any more housing and the infrastructure is already creaking. Access onto Ipswich Road/The Street is already getting difficult and as we live opposite the site we are concerned that the multiple dwellings will cause havoc with our access and right to privacy.

Although the proposal to build 7 dwellings has been granted, no account has been taken of the long term covert objective of this building scheme. Obvious by the layout of the site that the intention is to provide access to the fields behind the plot and to apply for building permission in the future for this area. This would impact this lovely part of Holbrook, threatening the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and wider landscape. Would ask the council to confirm they will not grant planning permission to the area behind the plot. As the land behind the plot is outside of the village boundary no development should be permitted.

Dear Sir,
I am writing to you to raise my concern about the future use of the land east of Ipswich Road Holbrook (Previous site ref : SS0717). Although the proposal to build 7 dwellings on the infill strip in front of the field (site ref : LA068) has been granted, no account has been taken of the long term covert objective of this building scheme.
It is obvious that by the layout of the site that the intention is to provide access to the fields behind the plot and to apply for building permission in the future for this area. This would impact this lovely part of Holbrook, threatening the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the wider landscape.
I would ask the council to confirm that they will not under any circumstances grant planning permission to the area behind the plot as it would be detrimental to the area. In addition the access road (from Ipswich Road) was approved for a small number of cars under site ref : LA068 and would not be suitable for a much large development.
Finally as the land behind the plot is outside of the village boundary no development should be permitted as other areas within the village should be utilised instead which will not impact the AONB.
Regards
Martin Brazill

This is a site suitable for the natural extension of properties along Ipswich Road, we do not agree that 10 homes can be built on it. The style of any proposed homes must be kept in line with adjacent properties with low roof lines.

I am concerned by the proposed development because the design includes a potential access road to a further development in the field behind, which is near an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. As one of many people who daily enjoy this open space, this should be redesigned to eliminate the possibility of that happening.

I also have concerns about the impact on the traffic flow on what is already a busy village road. The access from this development on to Ipswich Road also does not have sufficient safe visibility as regards oncoming traffic.

The plan contemplates up to 10 houses on this site. Outline planning permission has been given for 7. Both proposals are too dense taking into account surrounding properties. Development on the site should be restricted to up to 5 houses with plots perpendicular to the road. This will maintain the character of this part of Ipswich Road and prevent the possibility of any future development on the AONB behind the site.

A flood risk assessment should be carried out to identify suitable mitigation and a deliverable strategy for the disposal of surface water. Where possible development should avoid proportions of the site with predicted or historic flooding.
Inclusion of right of way in the policy is welcome. It is recommend the desired outcomes of retaining and enhancing the rights of way are within the policy. "Public Rights of Way should be retained and enhanced to enable access to the countryside and active transport."

I appreciate 7 dwellings has been granted. The immediate concern not only for myself but many other local residents is, once these dwellings have been completed, the road into the plot will allow access into the field behind, potentially putting the field & woodland at risk of possible development in the future. I feel strongly that any future proposals to develop the field would be unacceptable & not suitable for this area. It would inevitably ruin this lovely part of Holbrook, threatening the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as the field & woodland merge into the wider landscape. Road infrastructure would not support any more development. Highway safety concerns.

Dear Strategic Planning Policy Team,

Ref : Joint Local Plan, Holbrook, Land East of Ipswich Road, Site : LA068. (Previous Site ref : SS0717).

Further to my previous correspondence regarding this site. (Ref : Email sent 18th December 2018). I appreciate the proposal to build 7 dwellings on the infill strip of land in front of the field has been granted. The immediate concern not only for myself but many other local residents is, once these dwellings have been completed, the road into the plot will allow access into the field behind, potentially putting the field & woodland at risk of possible development in the future.

While developing the infill strip is acceptable (I would have preferred to see a continuation of the same type & design of surrounding properties, with front & back gardens, therefore no access road into the field). I feel strongly that any future proposals to develop the field would be unacceptable & not suitable for this area. It would inevitably ruin this lovely part of Holbrook, threatening the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty as the field & woodland merge into the wider landscape.

The Joint Local Plan has some good policies relevant to woodland & valuable arable land SP09 : Relating to, Protected Habitats Mitigation Zones. SP10 : Climate Change. LP16: Environmental Protection. LP17 : Biodiversity. LP18 : Landscape. LP19 : Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Vision & Objectives to conserve & enhance the natural, built & historic environment including, landscapes & green infrastructure. Previously developed land will be prioritised for development, where appropriate, to minimise the loss of the best & most versatile agricultural land. Enhancing & protecting the environment, the protection of woodland so important not only for biodiversity, protection of species & habitats but also to mitigate against the future effects of CO2 emissions regarding climate change. All these policies, the vision & objectives have a very specific relevance to the Land East of Ipswich Road, field & woodland.

I feel the road infrastructure in this part of the village would not support any more development. There are two blind bends approaching this site area from both directions. There would be obvious safety concerns for pedestrians, vehicles moving in & out, onto a busy Ipswich Road.

Holbrook is surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty, rich in biodiversity, woodlands & valuable arable land which must be protected, not only for environmental & climate change reasons but also for the wellbeing of local residents, now & into the future so new generations can enjoy, protect & retain the continued rural characteristics of the village.

Many thanks.

Best regards,

Mike Braybrooke.

The site lies across road from the Grade II listed The Beeches, immediately to the south- east of the site. Development should ensure that any frontage to the site is designed so as to be sympathetic to The Beeches.

Whilst respecting the need to provide additional housing in Holbrook, we wish to avoid overshadowing of neighbouring properties by the proposed development. Our property receives considerable solar heating gain from its south-facing aspect. The currently planned development would deprive us of direct sunlight and heat into at least some of our windows, resulting in increased heating costs to us.

This proposed development also provides access for eventual extension into the fields behind which we believe should not be developed in order to preserve the character of the village.

We wish to make the following comments on the planning application to build 7 properties on Ipswich Road, Holbrook.
Whilst respecting the need to provide additional housing in Holbrook, we wish to avoid overshadowing by the proposed development south of Blackmore Barn. Our property receives considerable solar heating gain from its south-facing aspect. The currently planned development would deprive us of direct sunlight and heat into at least some of our windows, resulting in increased heating costs to us.
We also oppose the building of seven properties in close proximity which is not in keeping with the existing housing density on Ipswich Road.
This proposed development also provides access for eventual extension into the fields behind which we believe should not be developed in order to preserve the character of the village.
We ask that the above considerations are taken into account.

As part of their representations to the JLP Consultation, Thorcross Builders Limited are promoting Land East of Ipswich Road, Holbrook, Suffolk (the ‘subject land’) for residential allocation in the JLP.
Only a small part of the subject land has been allocated for housing. The allocation is for 10 dwellings, 7 of which already have planning permission, representing a net allocation of 3 dwellings. This is the only allocation in Holbrook, which is a Core Village. Given the village’s reasonably high status in the JLP’s proposed settlement hierarchy, the ‘net’ allocation of 3 dwellings for Holbrook over the 18 year period 2018-2036 is woefully inadequate and unjustified.
The company seeks the council’s support for a suitable housing allocation of the subject site to assist the longer term vitality of Holbrook.
