Babergh District Council

Nicholas Ward, Chief Planning Officer, Babergh District Council, I object to Planning Application B/12/00500, for the former HMS Ganges site at Shotley Gate, proposed by Haylink Ltd. The proposed development is in an unsustainable location, it is too large, it will generate too much traffic and it will have a detrimental impact on the Shotley peninsula and the people who live there.

Signed,

Simon Ross-Pearce

The proposed development at the former HMS Ganges site (Planning application B/12/00500) is too big and it is in the wrong place!

Haylink Ltd. have placed another planning application before Babergh District Council for the former HMS Ganges site at Shotley Gate, Suffolk. This time it is for 285 houses, 60 bed nursing home, 30 bed hostel plus commercial space.

We all agree something needs to happen at the former HMS Ganges site, but making one of the largest parishes in Babergh, at the end of an eight-mile cul-de-sac, is not one of them.

There will be five years of heavy construction traffic along the B1456 ending in 2020. The development will add a further 600 vehicles on the B1456 during peak hours, as well as more outside these times. It will encourage a population increase of over 1000 people in a location that is not sustainable. Nearly everyone will have to take their cars for shopping, employment, education and leisure.

The proposed development will have a significant impact on the villages and villagers along the B1456 from Ipswich; noise, vibration, emissions and road saftey issues.

And all this on the edge of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and two Conservation Areas.

Tell Babergh what you think. Please sign the petition objecting to the planning proposal by Haylink Ltd. B/12/00500
