This land is inappropriate for development. It sits outside the settlement boundary and will be ribbon development. Its scale and mass will be inappropriate to its surrounding. Within Withersdale Street there is no public transport and very few facilities (no shops, no schools, no medical provision, no local employment centres). Travel to such services will have an adverse environmental impact. Access to the site is poor (with very poor sightlines), on a road that carries too much traffic, particularly HGVs,. Very few services exist along the frontage of the site - no gas, no mains sewerage.

Respondent: Historic England

Representation:

The small settlement surrounding Withersdale Street in Menham contains a number
of listed buildings and structures including Witherdale Cross, Knights Farmhouse,
Chapel Farmhouse and the Old Post Office Cottage. The potential site allocations
are set away from these features but development of these sites does still have the
potential to impact upon their settings. The presence of these heritage assets and
their settings should be considered carefully as part of the site allocation process.

SS1010 Withersdale. Parish Council OBJECTS to this site. It would contribute unacceptably to ribbon development along a Parish Council would support small scale development busy road, add unacceptably large number of dwellings to what is basically a small hamlet settlement, and create dangerous access. Drainage problems exist as water flows down.
