This would add to global warming. It would change the climate in the wrong direction. For example in Policy Area LA014 for Sproughton, the intention is to take farming land currently used for growing cereal crops and assign it for housing. Whilst the crops absorb Carbon Dioxide from the atmosphere, the housing would release Carbon Dioxide to the atmosphere. The plan offers no evidence why mitigation or adaption is favoured over the alternative of avoidance or prevention.

This area shows the heaviest morning rush hour traffic in Ipswich (see amount of RED on Google 'typical traffic' maps - around Copdock roundabout & Hadleigh/Swan Hill roundabout etc), so cannot support this size of development & additional traffic. The quickest route to the A14 (as Copdock roundabout so bad) is through the small village of Sproughton where the parked cars can cause gridlock.

We should be using brown field town centre sites rather than open fields due to the impact on climate/nature/environment etc as well as due to the lack of transport links & employment out of town.

Object for the adverse impacts these developments will have on these currently undeveloped locations but also because they will significantly contribute to the traffic-related impacts on Sproughton residents of B1113 and adjoining roads and impacts on Sproughton residents of B1113 and adjoining roads and impacts on environmental assets either at a site level or, collectively at a landscape level. Overall, this represents a negative impact on the local community of Sproughton contrary to the overarching objectives set out in the Issues & Options consultation for Healthy Communities & Infrastructure and Environment, and contrary to this consultation's promoted assertion that these Housing allocations are in the right place.

With LA014 these two developments will add some 1600 houses or 20% of the whole Babergh housing target. Not necessarily expected that LA013 would cross the western side of Hadleigh Road, thus eliminating most of what is known as Chantry Vale-a green lung between Ipswich and the surrounding villages. Believe Wolsey Grange 2 was originally suggested for 800 houses, which would have kept it to the eastern side only of Hadleigh Road. Should be for 800 houses only to the north of the A1071 and east of Hadleigh Road. 1300 houses represents the maximum the parish and traffic infrastructure can assimilate. Adding Copdock and Washbrook and Capel I believe this part of the District is taking a very full eight of the housing target for the whole District and Ipswich Fringe.

Site allocation policy should require the developer to test the potential resources on the site to identify if prior extraction or use of the mineral on site is appropriate.
Rights of Way within the site and within the vicinity of the site should be retained and enhanced to enable access to the countryside and active transport.

This site contains the Grade II listed Poplar Farmhouse. Any development of the site therefore has the potential to impact the setting of this listed building. Any development would need to be sensitively designed with appropriate landscaping.

Representation:

The new policy for this site which was designated as a strategic development site under the present Local Plan has, amongst other things, removed all ecological policies.This site has impact risks for the protected Orwell Habitat areas and was identified in the HRA report as such. But even that did not recognise the appropriate action to implement avoidance from recreational impact by provision of appropriate green and wild spaces in the area for the new residents and it also failed to recognise the significant ecological threat of a SUDS system with an unfiltered final attenuation discharge into the River Gipping and therefor the River Orwell habitats downstream.

This not only removes all the ecological, landscape, design requirements that restricted the site from unreasonable development to avoided harm to the site and the local area, but it is worded to remove compliance to any other requirements applicable in the new JLP

LA013 and LA014 together represent a substantial new residential allocation on the western edge of Ipswich, for 1,100 and 475 dwellings respectively and 4ha of employment land.
LA014 already benefits from outline planning permission for 475 dwellings and 4ha of employment land and a proposed school.

Representation:

It is welcomed that Land North and South of the A1071 have been identified as emerging allocations, noted as LA013 and LA014 respectively. It is also worth noting that both allocations lie entirely within Taylor Wimpey’s land ownership, this significantly de-risks the site.
