Representation:

Now that the loss of services has reduced Gt Finborough to a hinterland village, and even since then the minimal bus service is to be withdrawn, it is no longer an appropriate location for an estate of 30+ houses. The road from the village to Stowmarket is derestricted, has no footways and is the scene of numerous vehicle accidents, minor and major. Thus entirely unsuitable for pedestrians and dangerous and unattractive for cyclists. Accordingly the extension of settlement boundary to include farmland adjacent to Buxhall Lodge should not be proposed.
