Have a Voice - Longmead

Reproduced below is our response to the planning application submitted to East Herts District Council for permission to build new houses at Longmead.


On behalf of Buntingford Civic Society I am writing to ask that East Herts District Council refuse to grant permission to proceed with the proposals set out in the above application. Our reasons are as follows:

1. The proposals do not comply with policy ENV1 because they do not:

demonstrate compatibility with the structure and layout of the surrounding area,

relate well to the massing (volume and shape) and height of the adjacent buildings,

respect the amenity of occupiers of neighbouring buildings and those of future occupants and ensure that their environments are not harmed by noise and disturbance or by inadequate daylight, sunlight or privacy or by overshadowing.

2. Because Longmead is narrow and construction traffic will need access to the site (probably by way of Monks Walk), it is important for the developer to show how this is to be achieved safely and without undue disruption to traffic flows especially when children are travelling to and from Millfield School. This the developer fails to do in the submission made.

3. There is no Waste or Storm Water management Plan.

4. The drawings provided are of a low standard, containing errors and inconsistencies. The Location Plan drawing is out of date; e.g. it does not show the true extent of existing property near the site.

Yours sincerely,
