p182; South Levens. I agree that playing fields should not be used for development. However, I fail to understand the reasoning that development would be visible from the A590. Much of the village can be sen from the A590! p182; East Levens. This is good agricultural land where development should be avoided if there are sensible alternatives.
What change(s) would you suggest for this part of the Report?
I would like to see the suggestions of para 26, South Levens & para 29, East Levens taken out of the report.
Please use this space if you wish to set out a new option for consideration.
I would like to support warmly the move to develop affordable housing for local people, particularly for young families. I am told that there are probably enough 'brown' sites (eg former racing stables area), within the village, that could accommodate such development. Building on existing sites would help maintain the integrity of the community village ethos while encouraging integration of young families. At the same time loss of more agricultural/ green sites would be avoided. I would therefore like this alternative option to be investigated.
