As a resident of Low Biggins and parent of children ages 11 and 8 who attend local schools I would like to make the following comments.
I am already very concerned about the general safety on the local roads in particular the A65. I feel that the area south of the A65 would not be a desirable place for affordable homes for yound families with children as it is not a safe walking route to the schools or towns amenities and would only increase the existing problems with local traffic and safety issues.
Kirkby Lonsdale is portrayed as a Historic Market Town and I feel that any new housing developments should be placed in areas which will have little impact on this aspect. The area to the south of th A65 is the most prominent position suggested and any develepment here would not blend in with the existing and look more like a New Mordern Urban Town.
The local scenery is stunningly beautiful and I would strongly urge anyone considering the position of the proposed developments to walk along the footpath from Low Biggins to Devils Bridge and try to imagine the visual impact a housing development would have on the immediate surrounding area and on areas further afield like Casterton.
