Help CAPOW Reject Further Housing

As you will have seen, we have two planning applications in Bryning Lane currently. In support of local residents and the Village as a whole it would be of great assistance if you would email your objections to FBC Planning Department. To assist we have provided a list of planning reasons for refusal of each site below. Please do NOT use this list as it is written and use your own wording, adding any additional/removing matters as you see fit. FBC do regard repeat standardised letters as inferior objections! Some of you will already have objected and if so please ignore that part of this missive. I am afraid you will be asked to do the same for the pending application west of The Brooklands in due course. The email address to use is shown on all recent CAPOW Updates. 16/1028 Land behind Bryning Lane, entrance by 38 Bryning Lane – 41 houses OBJECTION CLOSE DATE - 27 JANUARY Reasons for refusal 1 - Contrary to the Emerging Local Plan. Unnecessary use of a greenfield site. 2 - Unsustainable and will overwhelm limited Village facilities and the Village infrastructure. 3 - Unsafe egress and inability to provide the required visibility splays. 4 - Will be visible from much of the Conservation Area. 5 - Like to cause additional flooding either in Moss Side Lane or Bryning Lane and has no ACTUAL plan for handling surface water. 6 - Ghettoisation of the smaller houses at the northern edge and inconsistent number of houses applied for, some documents show 38 and others 41. Most houses are of a type not required by the Community. 17/0005 Land adjacent to 53 Bryning Lane – 20 large detached houses OBJECTION CLOSE DATE – 4 FEBRUARY 1 - Contrary to the Emerging Local Plan. Unnecessary use of a greenfield site. 2 - Unsustainable and will overwhelm limited Village facilities and the Village infrastructure. 3 - Refused twice by FBC and once by an Appeal Inspector due to the change in character of this part of the Village, from the southern approach. 4 - Unsafe egress and potential inability to provide the required visibility splays. Questionable if a public footpath to the Village Centre on the east side of Bryning Lane can be provided and traffic calming measures are required. 5 - Likely to add to sewage problems in this part of Bryning Lane. 6 - No indication of any required balancing ponds on diagrams. 7 – No indication of support for any affordable houses. The houses proposed are NOT of a size or type required by the Community.
