One thought on “Draft Response to Local Plan Consultation”

  1. Placing a four way junction at clay lane is in total contravention of the burpham neighbourhood further will power lines and the school extremely close to this line traffic noise would be horrendious
    plan also suggesting c1 but not c2 will directly impact on the local green space designation of this area it is not appreciate comments referring to Burpham! Without reference to the neighbourhood plan thus we formerly request the Guildford society remove thee comments from the submission
    Further if c1 is developed without c2 roads in burpham will become Castro strophic ally clogged therefore recommending such action is unacceptable
    Further no proof has been provided lfor a slyfield link roads across zone 3b. Flood plain nor any provision for correction of the Moore field A320 junction…noting the current route proposed to the A3 will be longer than the existing route. Thus fails sa and sea tests
    In short please refer to the Burpham Neighbourhood plan before making your submission to the local plan.
