This map is misleading. Whilst its stated that planning consents granted prior to April 2018 have been taken into account when calculating numbers of dwellings required, the details don't represented on the map insofar as it doesn't show sites which have been granted consent.(2700/12; 2986/15 and DC/18/04695 please refer) DC/19/00046 has also been granted for a 49.9 MW gas powered Standby Electric Generator in Bullen Lane and this infrastructure project should also be shown on the structure plan to show the extent of future development in Bramford. The settlement boundary should be amended to take account of all of the above applications and the Place Map for Bramford updated accordingly

Notes land available for approximately 195 dwellings yet Outline Planning Consent has been
granted for only 190 dwellings (Planning Reference DC/18/00233)
Provision should be made for new footpath and cycle ways between Bramford and Bramford Lakes
which is currently inaccessible on foot or by bicycle from Bramford. Greater inter connectivity is required between this site and the proposed redevelopment of the
Fisons Factory Site in Papermill Lane by footpath and cycleway by means of a new footbridge over the river Gipping.

Planning permission for this site was granted in part due to the provision of the developer's travel plan which stated that "There are a number of bus routes located within close proximity to the site, which give access to several locations including Ipswich, Stowmarket, Bury St Edmunds and Cambridge". With the cancellation of the 89 bus route, this is no longer true. Development of the site should not be allowed without further contributions to the satisfaction of the LPA, this time towards public transport provision

BRAMFORD
LA006 – Allocation: Land south of Fitzgerald Road, Bramford - Approximately 100 dwellings
LA007 – Allocation: Land east of The Street, Bramford - Approximately 195 dwellings

COMMENTS
There is a need for some development, but it needs to be in keeping with the present village and should not sprawl towards Ipswich or Sproughton.

Even though reduced in size to 100 houses, LA006 is still a significant development for Bramford.

There are already 130 houses [Planning ref: 0156/17] being built near the cemetery and LA006 and LA007 will add 295 dwellings
The population 2,303 (2011) suggests the village currently has about 800 dwellings which means just these two developments will increase the population by 1/3.

The current infrastructure is not adequate for the current population.
1) The school appears to be addressing its problems
2) The buses have been reduced recently so that they are not adequate for the current population
3) There is no Doctor, the nearest is 2.5 miles away, with a poor bus link
4) The Street Bramford especially between Gippingstone Road and Bullen Lane is very narrow and inadequate for current traffic.
5) With the recent removal of the bus service, leaving only the 111 running approx. 4 times daily, there is now no service to support
commuter travel to Ipswich and the railway station and it is almost impossible to get an appropriate bus time for Doctor, Dentist or Hospital appointments.
6) The roads to Ipswich are in adequate for current level of traffic, especially Bramford Road and the routes through Sproughton.
7) Fitzgerald Road is not adequate to support the LA007 development.
a. Cars parked restrict this to a single lane along its length and this is worse at start and end of school .
b. Junctions at Ship Lane, Vicarage Lane and the B1113 create various problems.

CONCLUSIONS
Development LA007
1) Reduces the separation with Sproughton and the individual character of both villages.
2) Is outside the current plan
3) Is in adequately supported by the current infrastructure.
THIS DEVELOPMENT SHOULD BE REMOVED

Development LA006
Whilst large and not ideal provided it is done sensitively and appropriate affordable housing is included. But the infrastructure, especially the buses, needs improving.

Respondent: Bramford Parish Council

Representation:

Councillors have previously supported the development at this end of the village, believing it to be more suitable in terms of village identity, relevant infrastructure and minimal cumulative effect. Item IX refers to 'improving pedestrian links'. This has not been the case with regard to the initial site, as developers have failed to comply. Draft Joint Local Plan doesn't take into consideration the initial phase of development, already under construction. On this basis Councillors consider it prudent for the LA007 site to be significantly advanced before establishing the potential need to develop the LA006 site.
