The green space that fronts Church Road Elmswell should not be part of the development area. It has been planted by the parish council and villagers with trees. A maze has been built. it is a vital 'breathing space' in a rapidly over developed area and should be retained 'in situ'.
LA064 section III would seem to allow a relocation.

Sites must not be allocated as there is no feasible mitigation of the accepted over-capacity of School Road / Church Road junction. New Road / Warren Lane / Church Road / Cross Street junction is so close to safe capacity. Allocation includes community's amenity site. Broad spread of infrastructure requirements must be properly and vigorously addressed and full, proper and considered input must be required from consultees, in particular SCC Highways, before any application comes forwards for assessment and decision.

Add: An archaeological assessment and measures for managing impacts on archaeological remains are provided.
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.
Policy should require a transport assessment to determine existing and projected capacity and any mitigation required.

Respondent: Historic England

Representation:

Lies to the north of the Grade II* listed Church of St John, which dates from the fourteenth century and is prominently positioned.
Historic churches are often well sited, reflecting the importance of these buildings to the community. Siting means it is visible in long views across the surrounding landscape. The open landscape setting enhances the prominence of the church. The rural landscape setting also forms an attractive setting when seen in combination with the church in these views and in views out from the churchyard. The character of this land might also be said to complement the spiritual values of the building. Long views to the south encompass both Elmswell and Woolpit Churches which form an attractive group of buildings. We welcome the reference to heritage assets and their setting in the Policy, but suggest this could be strengthened by listing these assets and by requiring that development is designed to conserve and where appropriate enhance these listed buildings and their settings.
