Issues and Options for the Ipswich Local Plan Review

Question 6:

Representation ID: 25282

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Conservative Group

Representation Summary:

We do not believe it to be prudent during these uncertain political and economic times to plan for anything other than growth scenario A. Brexit on the horizon could bring many changes to housing needs especially due to immigration factors, so we believe a more cautious approach is needed now with the potential to look at this again when the future looks more stable.

Question 8:

Representation ID: 25283

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Conservative Group

Representation Summary:

Invariably communities are resistant to new development for obvious reasons, but this can be, and must be, mitigated by enhanced infrastructure. Too often we see developments being granted planning permission without the proper infrastructure in place which leads to increased objections from the residents. This is currently happening with several community groups complaining about lack of sufficient roads, drainage and sewers within the Ipswich Garden Suburb development.

Question 9:

Representation ID: 25284

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Conservative Group

Representation Summary:

The Conservative group are in favour of a Northern Route for Ipswich as well as significant upgrades to the Copdock interchange. Whilst we maintain a focus on sustainable public transport more must be done for the car driver who has been virtually ignored over the past few years. It cannot be ignored that despite environmental concerns car driving is more popular than it ever has been and journeys, especially those under 3 miles are increasing - these matters must be addressed rather than ignored.

Question 13:

Representation ID: 25286

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Conservative Group

Representation Summary:

Option 2 is the preferred choice of the group. We must face facts that our Borough boundaries constrain our development in many ways. Ipswich contributes greatly to the surrounding areas and provides many of the main services for the region. What it cannot provide, due to space, is housing so it makes sense that the other areas take a higher proportion of the new developments.

Question 17:

Representation ID: 25288

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Conservative Group

Representation Summary:

Infill gaps between settlements should be considered for developments where appropriate e.g. Ipswich & Claydon. We believe that villages should retain their identities but there are several areas around Ipswich where there is virtually no separation gap, so this must be considered on a case by case basis.

Question 18:

Representation ID: 25289

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Conservative Group

Representation Summary:

New developments should take place as close as possible to Ipswich but within the neighbouring districts. As the tax revenue for new developments would be lost to Ipswich it is vital that these developments rely on the main economic services of Ipswich which will bring a benefit to the town.

Question 19:

Representation ID: 25290

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Conservative Group

Representation Summary:

Employment land is vital to the economy of Ipswich but drawing lines on a map is never an exact science. Consideration should be given, where appropriate, for change of usage for any piece of land within the Borough on a case by case basis.

Question 20:

Representation ID: 25291

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Conservative Group

Representation Summary:

The Conservative Group believes in the continued protection of the Borough's open spaces but also recognises the desperate need for housing land. As with other choices development should be considered on a case by case basis. Ipswich is extremely well served with open spaces both large and small. If housing pressures continue to grow, then we would be foolish to deny the opportunity to even discuss the possible change of usage to any piece of land.
