Road access to/from Natland make further development unsuitable. Immediate access to the proposed site are from single track roads of Helm Lane & Oxenholme Lane, access via Natland Road is via a tight and narrow corner near the post office and most other access roads serving the village have single track sections. All are hazardous due to their very limited widths and tight corners. In addition, passing places on Oxenholme Lane are mainly on private drives.
There is significant flood risk if the green field site over limestone caverns is covered with concrete and buildings. This may exacerbate the ongoing flooding problems on the road leading to Sedgewick.
Sewage systems in the area are already at maximum capacity.
