Another 100 houses on top on the many on Days Road & the 550 application off Rembrow Road. Unless Developers are forced to pay for better community facilities ie school, doctors, recreational services, improved roads, Capel will grind to a halt. Increased pollution, greater danger to children with more traffic, further strain on a village than has been improved since 1960's. Please think about the impact on people in the village for once.
With so many houses you could build a completely new village

Full text:

I'm not sure if there is any point in commenting as Babergh do not seem to listen to any local concerns raised.
Building a further 100 houses in addition to the current development on days road is ridiculous. This additional 100 houses will put further strain on the existing facilities that are already strained.
The developers should be required to provide additional funds to the school and doctors to help with the extra demand as a result of the new 100 houses. The doctors in particular are already over subscribed.
The recreational facilities are lacking in the village again another 100 houses will make this situation worse.
The developers should be required to fund additional facilities such as a new pavilion on the playing field.
When will Babergh learn if the developers withdraw this application it will be resubmitted and babergh will not be able to join the 2 together.
The additional traffic will also introduce danger to the children and increase pollution. Can Babergh insist only Hybrid cars are allowed in the new development? All site traffic should be banned from the village during 8-9am & 3-4pm to avoid school pick up reducing the risk.
Babergh you are ruining Capel St Mary due to a lack of foresight and general planning

Capel st Mary is a garden village, and any further large scale development wil jeopardise the character and family feel of the village,
The current road system and public transport provision is inadequate.
If commuters do not leave the village early enough the tailbacks at copdock and south into Essex mean commute times are excessive.

Capel might look like a good site to build an additional 790 houses.
However, even with a school extension, a new pre-school, a health surgery extension and a new A12 link road, there are major issues.
Many of the new residents will add to the traffic problems at the already totally inadequate A12/A14 Copdock Interchange;
Bus provision to Capel is poor, + non-existent in evenings and on Sundays;
Parking provision is already an issue at the shops in the middle of Capel, and there is little room to expand there;
current Capel residents will suffer from more traffic.

The proposal is completely out of proportion for the scale of the village. There are already too many properties (with more already under construction) for the services and infrastructure to cope with. Promises have been made regarding services for previous developments and very little ever materialised.

No thought for village infrastructure, doctors, school parking for dropping and picking up, no parking in the village centre. Capel is a village not a town. Lack of playing field space

Full text:

I object as there has been little thought about the infrastructure of the village. This development is going to cause great congestion onto Longfield into Thorney Road then onto The Street. It already gets congested in the morning getting onto The Street to get to the A12. With the possibility of an extra 200 cars trying to get onto the A12 these roads just don't sustain it. To get into Ipswich by car should take around 15-20 minutes. When leaving to get into Ipswich for 9am you need to leave about 7.50am and you might just get to work on time. This is due to the amount of cars on the A12. When adding the amount of houses you are planning for Capel this can only lead to more congestion on the A12 as well as in the village. People don't walk anymore so parking by the school is going to get very bad both at the front and at the back. The car park in the centre of the village, Co-op area, is certainly not fit for purpose now. Also we don't need 4 or 5 bed houses just bungalows and 2 or 3 bed houses, developers should be employed just to build these and not worry about big profits, perhaps the government should employ builders so not to have to worry about the profits. The doctor's surgery needs to be sorted out first with the amount of problems they are already dealing with and the extra people in all the surrounding villages they are expected to take on their books. Perhaps a better bus service would help. If the current development, off Days Road, isn't selling well then surely this means we don't need this one.

Keep Capel St Mary a sustainable rural village.
If new housing is honestly required, then it should be (a) appropriate to the actual needs of the area, (b) built on existing brown field land or re-develop existing empty or derelict properties, and (c) NOT to create profit for the developers and local authority

A detailed plan with visions of 25 years

Full text:

Not enough future planning into the increase of development.
1. Congestion on A12/A14 is already 2 miles from the junction.
2. Traffic using rat runs to avoid the junction, through Capel St Mary to reach West Suffolk and when Orwell bridge is closed
3. Public transport is non-existing with no likelihood of improvements.
4. The Senior school is in East Bergholt, with no plans to provide additional transport for students. Likely to be cars!!
5. All the above will have an Environmental impact on this and other A12 locations.
6. There is no plan to increase broadband speeds, which will decrease as more residents come on line.

Whilst I understand that housing in the district is required, I do not agree with the size of this build. Capel is a village and not a town. The current roads/pavement infrastructure in Capel is poor without added pressure of more homes/traffic. Increased traffic in the village (to the shop/doctors/school will bring additional noise. Capel will not be as peaceful as it is now.

The site is contained within the current village and as such any vehicles in and out will have a detrimental impact on the village and existing residents in particular the additional traffic causing more noise, light and air pollution in close proximity to the existing homes is avoidable if the access is changed. The Access is inadequate for the number of vehicle movements, both on the basis on local resident being able to park outside their homes, as per the existing. Any development should be sympathetic to the residents, in this case there is likely to be animosity.

* the junction from Thorney Road onto the Street is already very busy, especially at the start and end of the school/working day

Capel should remain a village. We moved here in 1985 having decided this beautiful rural village was where we wanted to live and bring up our children. The schooling, shops, medical facilities were all more than adequate. However, over recent years we have seen additional housing developments around the village with no improvements to our facilities. Adding even more housing will exacerbate an already over stretched community.
Therefore I strongly object to these planning aplications.

Roads could not cope with the extra traffic, pound lane is a dangerous rat run, cars already speed through the village. The road is narrow near the co-op and is practically one way. The village was designed to be pedestrianised when built not fit for modern development. The doctors is struggling to recruit decent clinicians. The school does not get the Ipswich deprived area funding so will struggle to cope with more children. Drs struggling, dentist struggling. Impact will be seen in AONB in Dedham with additional visitors which will change the area beyond recognition. Unfair percentage of build.

Infrastructure is inadequate-The Street is a no go area at peak times already as the volume of traffic nr the Doctors is dangerous.
This level of development is not in keeping or proportion of the existing village
Any development should be per the Parish Council 5 year plan. More bungalows and low cost housing is required but developers put planning applications in to supply that, then change plans to generate more profit.
Parking down The St and in surrounding roads near school is already dangerous, more houses means even more congestion.
A12 backed to Capel rds can’t cope

While Old Hadleigh, a Grade II listed building is located to the immediate southwest of LA054, this is surrounded by modern development, and therefore the impact that development in this location would have on the significance of this listed building here is considered to be minimal.

CODE’s understanding is that the reserved matters application is ongoing and is subject to commentary from consultees, which may influence the extent of the final reserved matters layout (and final red line boundary of the site). With this in mind, it would appear sensible and prudent to retain the red line boundary as drawn for LA054. CODE considers that the site is sustainably and suitably located in relation to existing services and facilities within Capel St Mary and that the site could be developed in accordance with the emerging policies of the BMS-JLP.

Object to the number of houses being planned and believe there should be less houses and more suitable properties. The properties should comprise of a mixture of houses but have a higher than normal number of bungalows or similar homes. There are a number of people looking to stay within the village but downsize. This will in turn free up the existing larger family homes already in the village.
