Housing: sustainability must include energy generation at a household or estate level through solar, wind, air source and other sustainable methods. This will in turn feed in to economic and environmental objectives.
Healthy communities: given an aging population this does need to be local and to include local bus services. The relief road is essential for air quality as well as de-stressing travel around the town. Also, health is mental as well as physical. Supporting local theatres is an essential component of this.

With reservations. Any Industrial development should not detract from the enjoyment of local vistas or cause excessive disruption to local residents.

The current statement does not give adequate clarity for me to properly assess what the impact will be on Drinkstone. Apart from the objective of building more houses, there is little in the vision statement that demonstrates any innovative thinking on key issues in proposed policy addressing the economy, environment and infrastructure. As a result there is a serious risk that the pressures of the need for more housing stock, will result in the council ignoring totally environmental, infrastructure and conservation matters to the detriment of the whole village.

1. An objective might be better met by identifying an entirely new area for development where planning does not ruin villages.
2. There is a lack of real purpose or intention in the consultation plan behind the areas identified which is solely based on utilising the existing infrastructure and hope for the best.
3. If the real reason for not identifying a new area outside villages is that developers will not bear the infrastructure costs, the you should identify the tactical problems

Agree with the objectives in principle, but more emphasis should be placed on conserving our rural assets. The vision must be realistic, achievable and in line with the NPPF.

The focus of the objectives of the Local Plan should not place so much emphasis on supporting the growth of Felixstowe. Employment growth has identified the need for, inter alia, Science Parks within the district. There is nothing within the objectives to support this anticipated growth.

Representation:

There should be a balance between supporting housing growth with maintaining the character of the rural community.

The expansion of economic activity is to be encouraged in that it supports the community with increasing income to the area. Again, there needs to be a balance with the existing residents to avoid adverse impact through increased traffic disturbance and visual impact.

It is of crucial importance that the village boundaries are characterized by green fields and development free zones
The design of new housing within the villages and parish should be of a rural design in keeping with the village and its historical past. Modern building techniques may be followed but the finished product should have a village feel.Open plan front gardens with car parking in ratio to house size.
Parking spaces must use permeable surfaces to allow for rain water absorption and should be designed to maintain the rural character of the village

I agree with the objectives re balancing housing with employment needs but it is not clear how far this involves driving empyment and industrial development. I think the objective needs to make this clearer and that development - industrial and housing should be expansion of existing areas optimising sustainability and rural development should be small scale and not drive further housing need.

The Housing Objective should give a clearer definition of 'right type' of homes. Social housing and affordable homes are needed, and the balance should be weighted against a majority of executive homes.

The Environmental Objective seeks to protect the environmental assets, landscape and green spaces, but the rest of the plan entails the destruction of these. Whilst houses do need to be built, the objective could define how landscapes can be protected and emphasise the contribution of landscape to the wellbeing of the population. The plan could helpfully highlight brownfield site opportunities.

The housing objective is weak we need to firm up what is meant by right place and meeting need. How are right places identified and what need is being met? How local is local need, or is this District or County need?

Representation:

Agree but think that the identified objectives are too broad, and it is noted that important local issues such as infrastructure provision warrant only a 3.5 page explanation where the concentration of the consultation is on housing. More thought and information has to be given about infrastructure, how the plan will deliver it, and the ongoing cost of maintaining that infrastructure. The consultation on infrastructure should be to the extent of the consultation on housing i.e more than 3.5 pages as the two go hand in hand.

1.Main issues concern infrastructure, radical improvement needed for already strained local road network, delivery of a much needed new school and medical facilities.
2. Homes that are affordable and provision made for aging local population
3. There is great risk to our small village being swamped and lost in several large developments
4. Priority should be to spread more evenly the development across Babergh rather than a few large sites.
