I would like to pass on my congratulations to the Joint Local Plan Team on their plan for Needham Market.
You have obviously taken into account the flooding issues and the lack of easy access to the A14.
Many thanks for not going forward with the proposed site off Barking Road. I am very relieved that the residents of Foxglove Avenue will not be subjected to an increased risk of flooding.

Support the new plan with regards to the lower allocation of new housing to Needham Market, as access to the A14 is poor, height-restricted, and sometimes flooded. However, some statements in the plan inaccurately imply that A14 access is good. Also good to see the removal of sites such as the land north of Barking Road and others that suffer from being too distant from the town centre and with access through flood zones. Although it is disappointing that site ALT20 has still been included as an alternative since access through the flood zone has already been deemed unsuitable.

• The JLP needs to confirm whether an expansion of health facilities in Needham Market is required and whether there is capacity on the existing site to accommodate the expansion required, including car parking.

Object to the exclusion/assessment of SS1141. Site was rejected due to the site having poor access to core services and facilities. We notice that this is the only issue concerning the site’s suitability for residential development as assessed by the SHELAA. As such, subject to alleviating the Council’s concern that the site lacks a deliverable access, the Site should be considered suitable, available and achievable for residential development. In such circumstances, the Site should be allocated for residential development. It is our client's intention to undertake technical work to provide the Council with detailed transport and highways evidence and modelling to support the feasibility.

Object to the omission of Co-op Store, 15 King William Street, Needham Market as a proposed residential allocation. Site is farm from ideal for foodstore, as such the Society have entered into arrangements to provide alternative convenience retail store as per LA032. Considered that the existing Co-op store site would be more suited to residential development for up to 10 dwellings. Noted site lies within a highly sustainable location at the hear of Needham Market and highlighted as an appropriate location for residential development consistent with the strategy of the JLP. Alternatively it may be considered that proposals can be considered against the policies of the JLP in due course and dealt with as a windfall site, although it is considered preferable to plan proactively through allocation of the site at this stage to provide increased certainty.
