Thank you for signing!

Baltonsborough Parish Council recommended refusal on the material planning considerations listed below:

• NPPF, Local and Neighbourhood Plans:
The proposed development is outside the development limit of the village.
• Previous planning:
A proposal in relation to the site was refused in 2009, citing negative impact on the local environment.
• Highway issues:
The exits/entrances to the site are from a narrow rural lane just before a blind bend. This would be
highly unsafe.
• Visual impact:
The proposed development will contribute to the further infilling of Ham Street with housing,
destroying the rural ambience of this part of the village.
• Adverse impacts on nature, biodiversity, trees and hedges.
