Transport infrastructure is already overloaded, the congestion through the village would be terrible.
March 27
This is an ill conceived proposal with clearly no consideration for the effect on the existing community or impact on an already strained infrastructure. Its motivation can only be to line the pockets of the land owner and developer.
March 27
The proposition of a residential development of this size in this location practically and technically flawed. The road network in the heart of the village struggles to cope with the current volume particularly over the single lane bridge at the main access to the major junction of the A5/A45 and as a consequence in areas is already dangerous. Coupled to this the school is at capacity even following recent building works. The position of the site and number of proposed properties cannot be accommodated within the infrastructure of the village.
March 27
It's rediculous to even contemplate building such a large development on that site, as many have already said issues with flooding is a huge concern and the roads and pavements leading to the site are too narrow to cope, these roads were built for horses and carts not lorries, buses and cars! Also the junction at the plume of feathers is hazardous enough already with the amount of traffic we have now, how many accidents will happen when there are an extra 200 cars using that junction?

    Today I went to look at a little house on New Croft which I was about to put in an offer for when I spotted a neighbour and asked about the area.

    I was stunned to hear about the development that would destroy the beautiful countryside at the rear of the property. Needless to say I have changed my mind.

    I feel sorry for residents whose house prices will plummet when they lose the surrounding countryside to a modern housing development.

    The village has to grow, this is something I truly believe, however it needs to be in areas which will not push, already over loaded streets.
    With the bypass plans in place surely there are areas on the outskirts of the village that can be infilled next to the A45/A5

    Like others, I am concerned about increased traffic in the village, which is already bottle necked at times in the centre. Increased demand on services is another worry; we have fluctuating water pressure on a regular basis already and increased pressure on the sewage infrastructure would also be a concern.

    I agree with all the comments in opposition thus far.

    Whilst I appreciate the country and county requires new housing surely it would make more sense to develop around existing villages where there is already infrastructure in place, ie alongside the A45 or A5 but to place this amount of housing in the heart of a village that already cannot cope with current traffic is beyond belief. My other concern is that when developers plan sites with large numbers of housing are they willing to help with building annexes to schools/surgeries and perhaps shop facilities etc etc.

    I wish the Action Group every success, I have unfortunately been away for every public meeting.
