Little Waldingfield should only take one or two houses and definitely NOT on Church Field. Too many builds will destroy our conservation areas and the character of our village. Affordable housing is only useful if it is built in the right areas, a small rural village is not one of them. Babergh council must defend our interests as villagers or else we will never trust them again.

Church field must at all costs NOT be developed. It is a sacred field for our small hamlet - connecting the Grade II listed Wood Hall and our Church. It is a conservation area, it should be out of the question to build upon it. Little Waldingfield is a Hamlet and therefore should only be allocated as few houses as possible - 2 or 3 at most. A great number would be out of the question as we do not have any amenities other than a post box, but us villagers like it this way. Little Waldingfield would be a totally unsuitable village for affordable housing as residents must have a car, there are no nearby schools or shops and to build these in front of two grade II listed properties would create a lot of friction.

Church field must be protected and not built upon. It would make a mockery of our village to destroy this richly historical piece of land and the footpath connecting our Church to Wood Hall. There is a dangerous bend in the round where these potential houses would be - I do not see how anyone could safely reverse a car onto this road should houses be built, let alone safely cross the road which I have experienced myself.

Full text:

As a hamlet it is unreasonable to expect Little Waldingfield to take many houses at all, it is paramount that Church Field is not built upon whatsoever. If we do have to take a couple of houses at most, they must be built on sites that do NOT include Church Field. Anyone that knows this village will be aware of the historical connection between Wood Hall (grade II listed) and our Church (grade I listed) BOTH of which grade listed buildings which are central to the great history of this village. Church field is a conservation area - it and the wildlife is contains should therefore be left alone.

Little Waldingfield has been designated as a hamlet with no real facilities. It would be very foolish to try and establish further housing in such a small place.

Church field is a conservation area with significant importance to the church (grade 2 listed) and Wood Hall (grade 2 listed) public footpath legally and historically protected. 60 objections from villagers. Parish council have failed us and acted without mandate from village. Centuries of history would be destroyed as well as precious wildlife. Dangerous bend in the road.

As BDC JLP has classified Little Waldingfield as a hamlet this in turn should mean reduced housing within our village. BDC must under the JLP take into account various factors relating as to where these properties are to be sited such as conservation areas, TPO's and area of outstanding national beauty to which church field already benefits from. Question: Why are BDC and our own Parish still considering site SS0874 when the land owners from site SS0545 are prepared to accommodate all the housing proposed for the village to the year 2036

This development site adversely affects a heritage landscape and ancient footpath close to a conservation area. The proposed site falls outside the development area. The development I believe to disproportionate to the existing settlement. The Village hamlet has a lack of facilities. Access on the B115 will be dangerous.

Little Waldingfield redesignated a Hamlet and should not be required to provide any further new homes as there are already 9 outstanding planning permissions for houses.
Settlement Boundary should not be changed as this appears to conflict with policies LP01 and SP03. Little Waldingfield almost completed its Neighbourhood Plan and is better placed to decide about its own community .
SS0545 has been summarily rejected without consultation, although supported in our Neighbourhood Plan and by independent planning advisers and should be reinstated as a SHELAA 2019 potential site as inconsistent approach and lack of consultation and regard for Neighbourhood Plan.

Full text:

1. Redesignated as Hamlet, therefore housing requirement should be reduced from 16 to 9 accordingly as now disproportionately represents 6.1% of total requirement for ALL Hamlets against an average of 1.3%.
Currently has 9 designated outstanding planning permissions, which already far exceeds average requirement for Hamlets of 3.5 houses. LP represents a 10% growth in housing numbers for village, which has no facilities and buses are being withdrawn.
2. Settlement Boundary should NOT be amended by Babergh as village almost completed its Neighbourhood Plan, therefore such decisions should be made by village. Amendment appears to conflict with Policies LP01 and SP03.
3. Inconsistent approach to SHELAA sites. SS0545 summarily rejected without discussion, although this site is supported in our Neighbourhood Plan based on independent advice, while SS0874 remains live, though several similar constraints identified. The possibility of accessing site SS0545 has been dismissed, (WHY?), in contrast with SS0874, where access on to the highway is near/on a bend and is likely to be dangerous. The 'connectivity' of site SS0545 to the existing settlement will be similar to the adjacent existing Grove Avenue and Croft Lea. Although there is no residential aspect onto The Street, this reduces the impact on listed buildings. So if acceptable 100m along the road, why not here? Is SS0545 really likely to cause 'substantial harm' to designated heritage assets as it sits behind them and could be screened from them by existing hedging, which could be supplemented? Again this contrasts with SS0874, where the relationship to three Grade II buildings has been ignored.

SS0874 - The site is a conservation area. Only access is on a bend opposite Grove Avenue making it very dangerous to exit from the site. Since I have lived here (2003) there have been a few accidents on that stretch of road, would the next one result in a fatality? There are no facilities in the Hamlet either to encourage younger people and families or to assist the aging community many of whom do not drive and are restricted to their home because of lack of transport.
