Opposition to Speculative Development in Weedon

We the undersigned residents of Weedon and surrounding areas wish to register our opposition to the development of a large residential area on land off New Street in Weedon. We call on the decision makers to reject the building of such an excessive development in the view of overwhelming local opposition.

Please take our survey after signing the petition: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/JMGBDQK

Discussion

  • Terry Cox 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.

  • Ian deSouza 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.

  • Janet Coe More SEWAGE? No Thanks!
    More TRAFFIC? No Thanks!
    More FLOODING? No Thanks!
    Bigger SCHOOL? No Room!
    EMPTY PROPERTY? Why?
    PARK AT THE SURGERY? Where?

    1 month ago Comments: 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.

    2 months ago Comments: 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.
