Please write your comment or explain your reasons for supporting or opposing this part of the Report. You may also wish to refer to the tests of soundess in the glossary of the Preferred Options document before making your comments.
I would like to comment on SLDC Core Strategy Preferred Options on pages 119 to 138 Para 6 East Natland and Table 3 Paragraph 10 which refers to the possibility of zoning the land to the East of Natland between Long Meadow Lane and the railway line as suitable for housing development.
I wish to oppose this proposal.
My reason for this is that any further expansion of the village boundaries will really destroy this rural village - the erosion has already begun with the Russell Armer development on Natland Road. The roads into the village are too narrow to take the current traffic without adding to the burden of another development and visually it would be very intrusive.
I find it rather worrying that Natland seems to be scooped up into the idea of the Kendal "Principal Service Centre" and hope that the intention is not to gradually swallow it up into Kendal itself as currently it is very definately a separate settlement with its own very distinctive community.
I would like to be notified when the DPDs have been submitted to the Secretary of State for independent examination.(both the Core Strategy and the Kendal Canal head Action Plan.)
Please indicate if you wish to be notified when the Core Strategy has been:
