Request for settlement boundary to be amended to include property of Red House as per previous boundary in 1974.

Full text:

Dear Planning Team,

The purpose of this submission is to request that you change the settlement boundary around Red House and its land back to where it was in 1974 when we bought the property.
The reason for that reinstatement is to prepare for a planning application for a small group of houses at some time within the next 6 to 10 years. Such infilling would be consistent with the proposed designation of Redgrave as a Hinterland village and its historic rate of development of one or two houses per year for the past 40 years.
I hope that you will be able to correct this anomaly which incidentally will put the settlement boundary and the conservation area boundary back on the same line again.

Proposed scale of development in Redgrave is wholly disproportionate to the size of the existing village. Increase in properties would put a further strain on local services such as sewage, water, health centre and schools.

Proposed development would mean an enormous increase in the traffic through the village, impacting the centre of the village, village green could sustain damage. Churchway is a very narrow lane. Redgrave is a small village with very few amenities. Loss of facilities would have a detrimental effect on the fabric of village life. Part of a site is within a Conservation Area - a modern development would be at odds with this.

The proposed scale of the development in Redgrave appears to be wholly
disproportionate to the size of the existing village. The increase in properties would put a further strain on local services such as sewerage and water and the increase in residents would also put a further strain on the health centre and school in the
neighbouring village of Botesdale.

Given that many households have a minimum of two vehicles, the proposed
developments would mean an enormous increase in the traffic flow through the
village. At the proposed site on Churchway this could be extremely problematical as the lane is a very narrow one, suitable in places for only one vehicle at a time. The
increase in vehicular access would also impact on the centre of the village, especially around the beautiful and historic village green which could sustain damage from the additional residential traffic and most probably the heavy construction traffic need to build the houses.

Redgrave is a small village with very few amenities. The proposal would mean that the village would lose two of its most important and treasured assets; the village hall and the adjacent playing field. Both of these facilities are used regularly by all age groups and their loss would have a detrimental effect on the fabric of village life and the sense of community.

The Consultation Map appears to show that one of the proposed development areas
has included an area contained within the current Conservation area, surely such a
modern development would be at odds with the historic and aesthetic properties of the Conservation Area?

The large developments being planned for Regrave is totally inappropriate for a small village in a conservation area and next to Redgrave and South Lopham Fen, National Nature Reserve, which is the largest remaining lowland valley fen in England.
There are no amenities in Redgrave such as schools, doctors etc and everything needed would have to be driven to causing more traffic on already narrow and dangerous roads,
A detrimental effect of proposed development on the character, adverse effect on the appearance of the Conservation Area and heritage assets within of the local area, which would be lost forever.
