travel option.

 

There is no design data to prove a water drainage solution that would be adequate

regarding the agricultural land flooding history and the density of any inherent hard surfacing.

         

There is no details of the design of the properties and their impact on global warming.

 

Lack of holistic planning. Included in the three large sites (Windmill Farm, Bluecoat Park and the 2 parts of H51 in the Western Arc Development provision has been made for Primary Education but none for Secondary Education, indicating that all those pupils of secondary age would need public/private transport to and from school which would further add to the burden of the transport requirement/network.
