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.
please accept this note as my objection to the option of introducing a Storth housing development, off the Yans Lane/Storth Road area. The access to such a development would require significant expansion of the roadways, potentially causing the fabric of the village to be destroyed; access via Yans Lane would require significant demolition of the Post Office areas ; alternatively access via Storth Road at the Village Hall end, would cause congestion because of the Village Hall car users.
This development would cause additional strain on the village;
Further traffic in a small village, particularly close to the School.
Additional families, without any facilities, e.g. shops, will generate further traffic
Additional demand on utilities infrastructure, causing further damage to the village.
As an alternate to the Yans Lane development, could housing be developed on the B5282, between Storth and Arnside, this would give the potential of building new road access, without disturbing the centre of a village?
