Recent and ongoing new housing in the village of Holme has increased the population enormously over the last few years, this level of growth cannot surely be sustained without having serious implications for the following -
Massive increases in the volume of traffic on access roads to the suggested areas as well as in and out of the village
Services under strain - can the current sewerage and power facilities cope with the extra volume of housing?
Limited facilities in the village will be stretched by the increase in population.
Demise of the green belt location which currently helps many of the houses retain that rural village feel, over developing the area, for example, to 'help join housing along Station Road to the centre of the village' would in fact have a negative effect rather than a positive benefit for the homes and residents of that particular area.
Currently the village is on the verge of becoming over developed and surely it is time to take steps protect these small pockets of England's rural landscapes with their unique blend of wildlife and beauty spots from disappearing altogether.
As a resident of the village I would be grateful if these points would be taken into serious consideration during your ongoing assessments.
