Regarding Washbrook and Copdock. Safety is the key concern. Many of the single track Lanes are not safe for additional traffic. The area is popular for cycles and horses. Additional traffic will put lives at risk. This is exacerbated by the absence of footpaths for much of the Lanes and in some areas these are on blind corners, Back Lane for example.

A northern bypass for Ipswich to prevent gridlock every time there is a problem with the Orwell Bridge.
No further development around Capel/Copdock/Sproughton/Pinewood without improvements to the copdock interchange, mentioned on a daily basis on the traffic reports. This is already badly needed and a report has said the A12 will be overcapacity by 2021.
These issues not only effect the people living here but also effect current, and potential future growth of businesses (including the Port), and tourism.
Would also like to see cap of growth of villages, and only small 'in keeping' developments allowed to preserve their heritage/identity/community.

Capel St Mary must remain as a village and not lose the community feel or the recreational benefits of being surrounded by fields and country walks that many of the residents enjoy. The air quality will be under severe strain if there is much more traffic and development in the area to add to the fumes from the A12

For Babergh DC to give full recognition to the policies and issues raised in the 'made' Lavenham Neighbourhood Development Plan.
Lavenham has an elderly population and their needs must be satisfied and assisted housing provided. The parish council's aim is the provision of a new primary school. This needs to be pro-actively pursued by the authorities. The approach to housing development must be innovative and flexible, in order to meet the needs of young, disabled and elderly people.

Respondent: Woolverstone Parish Council

Woolverstone is an ancient estate village and needs protection from development both within the village and cumulative impacts from development on the Shotley Peninsula.

Full text:

Woolverstone is an ancient estate village. Much of the building that is listed took place in the eighteenth and nineteenth century. As you travel through the village, much of the estate building is still in clear evidence. To the north of the B1456 the village is situated within the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty; to the south of the B1456 is within the AONB project area. The majority of the village is within a designated Conservation Area. However, the cumulative impacts of development further down the B1456 have brought noise, severance, pollution and vibration to the village. The local red brick walls, part of the historic fabric of the village, are being destroyed by the wash from cars through inadequate road drainage. The road is narrow in places and residents are subject to persistent speeding. This is before the impact of a 30% increase of traffic through the development at former HMS Ganges and Shotley Marina. Most important to Woolverstone is to see its designated Conservation Area protected and enhanced by planning policies and not being degraded by policy decisions. Second most important is to retain the vistas of ancient estate farmland and hedges without further development on the fertile (Grade 2) "greenfield" sites offered through the call for sites which have been listed in the Local Plan as being suitable for development. (Joint Local Plan Consultation Document. Appendix: SS0255 and SS0203)

Shotley Peninsula. Most of the Shotley peninsula is within Suffolk Coasts and Heaths ANOB. It is a unique location retaining the only ancient farmland estates in Babergh District. Our village of Woolverstone is on the B1456 which runs the length of the Shotley Peninsula; any development further down the road impacts on the communities along its way. We feel that there should be an overview of development for the whole Peninsula rather than piecemeal development in communities. The infrastructure is poor; one main road in and out takes the vast majority of traffic. We have frequent electricity outages in adverse weather. There is no access to gas. The bus service is poor and the level of service in the peninsula has recently been reduced. For many, there is little or no phone signal. Most of the population travel off the peninsula for work, shopping, post-16 education or leisure. The surgeries are shared across communities. The ability of the peninsula to cope with more housing should be looked at as a whole before it becomes a dormitory of Ipswich.

Representation:

Given the up-to-date nature of the Lawshall Neighbourhood Plan, it is hoped that the District Council will "minimise any conflicts between policies in the neighbourhood plan and the emerging Local Plan" as stated on page 78 of the consultation document.
A fundamental element of the Lawshall Neighbourhood Plan is its spatial policy that honours Lawshall's age-old character as a series of hamlets with open farmland between. Thus, any extension of the Built Up Area Boundaries (BUABs) or reduction of settlement gaps would be strongly opposed - since they would undermine this fundamental character.

Since Local Plan consultation commenced, the Lawshall Neighbourhood Plan has been 'made' by the District Council following a Referendum at which nearly 93% of those that voted were in favour of the Plan. Given the up-to-date nature of the Plan, it is hoped that the District Council will "minimise any conflicts between policies in the neighbourhood plan and the emerging Local Plan" as stated on page 78 of the consultation document.

Respondent: Eye Town Council

Representation:

There has been a complete absence of a vision for the future of Eye which has led to ad hoc decision making.
The refusal of BMSDC to designate a Neighbourhood Plan area for Eye has robbed the people of Eye of the opportunity to create its own vision.
The Plans that have been prepared such as the Development Framework for Eye Airfield have been ignored in subsequent decisions. Lack of clarity about the role of the employment area.
Residential development north of Castleton Way contributes to only 25% of the infrastructure funding required.
Paddock House has been left boarded up, without any community engagement
Minimal consultation of the de-scheduling of Tacon close despite the Local Plan making the case for more residential accommodation for older people.

Beyton should maintain its distinct identity as a village with clear separation from the surrounding villages of Thurston and Hessett.The environment of open spaces and current village layout should be maintained and any building should be sensitive to this layout and to the size of the village. Changes in neighbouring villages must not have an adverse impact on Beyton particularly with respect to any additional traffic.

Building on or near the conservation areas should prevented and these areas should be preserved for the benefit of residents.

Woolverstone should be recognised as it is - a small hamlet with poor infrastructure but designated Agricultural land, AONBs, conservation areas and historically significant buildings. The priority is to retain this character and ensure any development is limited to not destroy these core identifications of the area. Across the whole district no greenfield/agricultural land/AONBs should be developed until every possible bronwfield site has been utilised.

In Copdock & Washbrook, the strong feeling of community, the sense of being in a small village where we all know each other, the large number of surrounding footpaths (maintained by village volunteers), the beautiful surrounding farm land and country views, the small country lanes, the minimal number of street lights, the absence of footpaths, the exceptional village school, the locally run pub... these are all things that make our village a wonderful place to live. This would all be spoiled by over development and a large increase in population and the scale of local facilities.

It is most important to avoid over development. Copdock and Washbrook are small communities with poor infrastructure and few amenities and the proposals could more than double the size of the village. The roads are already overloaded and inadequate for the current volume of traffic and therefore the proposed plan would increase the gridlock that we experience on a frequate basis.

In Shimpling, it is to prevent speculators and developers from ruining the village on the pretext of meeting a national need. There is no virtue in tarmacing the countryside to create dormitory settlements. The countryside and the historic small villages and hamlets within it need protection from a 'one size fits all' approach to building houses

I noticed that on the village map in the draft plan, changes have been 'slipped into' the BUAB. This has been extended (no prior warning/consultation). IT NEEDS TO GO BACK TO ITS PREVIOUS LINE.
