Apologies

Mr R Howes

 

‘The Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment – Sites in Your Parish’ letter sent by NSDC was discussed.  The Parish Council considered ‘technical’ issues relating to each site which they felt ought to be raised with the District Council.

 

  1. Adjacent to 15 Triumph Road: No issues raised (08.0244)
  2. Newark Road (08.0034) It was pointed out that the site was outside the village planning envelope.  It was a traditional area of flooding and had problematic access points.  There were also concerns about the present infrastructure coping with a development of this size.
  3. Land to the rear of Sternhill Paddock (08.0156).  It was pointed out that the site was outside the village planning envelope.  Part of the land had originally been a pond and was prone to flooding (photographs were circulated).  A public footpath crossed over part of the land.  It was debated whether the infrastructure, roadways, water supply, sewage in their present form would be able to cope.  The issue of access was raised.

 

The Clerk will pass on the Parish Council’s comments to NSDC.
