Before completing this online representation please tick the box to show you have read the 'Guidance Notes for Making a Representation'
I have read the guidance notes
LA1.3 Housing Allocations - RN152 GREENODD LAND AT THE OLD VICARAGE
1.1 Do you consider that the South Lakeland District Council Land Allocations DPD is legally compliant?
2.1 Do you consider that the South Lakeland District Council Land Allocations DPD is sound?
2.2 If NO please identify which test of soundness your representation relates to by selecting the relevant option(s) below and completing section 2.3.
The DPD is not justified in that it is not founded on a robust and credible evidence base and/or is not considered the most appropriate strategy when considered against the reasonable alternatives.
The DPD is not effective in that the document is not deliverable, flexible or capable of being monitored.
2.3 Please give details of the change(s) you consider necessary to make the South Lakeland District Council Land Allocations DPD sound, having regard to the test you have identified at question 2.2 above.
It would be helpful if you could state your proposed change to the DPD and the reasons why you think it is necessary.
It is not justified in that the vast majority of the local community do not want this site developed, prefering that noted under as AS29 as more appropriate.
It is not effective in that sewage & drainage problems are likely to occur, these having been encountered previously with an adjacent development, and still continue from time to time. Additionally, it is considered there is no demand for further housing, there being some 16 properties on the market in the two villages of Greenodd and Penny Bridge, at various prices, and these have been up for sale for some considerable time. Traffic and parking problems will likely be exacerbated from any development of this site for 22 houses.
Perhaps not particularly relevant, but I consider worthy of mentioning, is the situation regarding the adjacent church and churchyard which provides wonderful views up the Crake Valley to the Coniston mountain range. This being appreciated and taken advantage of, not only by local people, but also by visitors to the church for such as christening, weddings and funerals. In the latter respect much solace is gained by people visiting the graves of the dearly departed, being surrounded by the beautiful views and scenary. This is very much an amenity not to be lost or spoilt by development of this adjoining field.
3.1 If your representation is seeking a change, do you consider it necessary to participate in the oral part of the examination?
NO, I do not wish to participate at the oral examination
