The land falls outside the development limit, therefore leading to coalescence between Cartmel & Allithwaite
Loss of visual amenity, destruction of wildlife habitat
There is clear under capacity in terms of community assets and infrastructure
Development would impact on the environmental character of the settlement
Development would put increased pressure on already under-resourced hard and soft community services
This is very little or no local employment to sustain local development
Development would lead to an increased use of private transport putting increased pressure on already saturated village road networks leading to an increased risk of road traffic accidents and increased levels of local pollution
No evidence provided that there is a demand in Allithwaite for additional housing
Quality of life for existing residents would be severely compromised.
What change(s) would you suggest for this part of the Report?
There are other more viable and more sustainable alternatives for development in Cark and Flookburgh
Point 4.52 indicated that Allithwaite was not considered with regards the Employment & Housing Land search study, based on the results of a report over 3 years ago. Extensive work is required to establish the implications of extending Allithwaite, and it appears that this has not been done thus far.
