Option 4: Scraptoft / Thurnby SDA

Representation ID: 1350

Received: 22/10/2015

Respondent: STOUGHTON Parish Council

Representation Summary:

We object strongly to option 4 and any further development in the Scraptoft/Thurnby and Houghton settlements as both the A47 and A6 approaches to Leicester are already congested at extended peak times, and Stoughton is already plagued by heavy traffic seeking to link between these two roads. Any more vehicles will be unsustainable and indeed dangerous.

Option 6: Lutterworth SDA

Representation ID: 1353

Received: 22/10/2015

Respondent: STOUGHTON Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Option 6 has been considered to be the most favourable option. Lutterworth has already infrastructure in place with good transport links and employment opportunities nearby that could be built on with the view to support a large sustainable housing development. This minimise housing developments in our small villages that hardly have any infrastructure to support any new
housing developments.

Option C1: Strictly controlling development in the countryside

Representation ID: 1354

Received: 22/10/2015

Respondent: STOUGHTON Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Stoughton Parish Council strongly supports option C1. With its minimal facilities (a small village hall) and the recent ruling by the planning inspector Jonathan Hockley on 19 August 2015, and minimum opportunity for infill we consider, as Mr Hockley has ruled, that no further construction is sustainable in Stoughton.

Q10. Do you have any comments regarding the proposed policy approach for Leicester Airfield?

Representation ID: 1355

Received: 22/10/2015

Respondent: STOUGHTON Parish Council

Representation Summary:

The Leicester Airfield site is served by narrow and dangerous minor roads only. Any further development would mean much increased traffic risk. The noise problem from the go-kart cars creates constant complaints and friction. Leicester airport is an established and acceptable enterprise but any further development will cause great problems. Therefore the Parish
Council is opposed to any further development on this site.

Option G1

Representation ID: 1356

Received: 22/10/2015

Respondent: STOUGHTON Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Stoughton Parish Council strongly supports option G1. Stoughton is a unique village retaining its original historic estate character. It is vastly different from any nearby settlement and a clearly defined Green Wedge totally surrounding the village is essential to prevent erosion of this unique and valued character.

Respondent: STOUGHTON Parish Council

Option C1: Strictly controlling development in the countryside

Representation ID: 1358

Received: 22/10/2015

Respondent: STOUGHTON Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Please note the suggestion for the removal for the houses on the southern side of Stoughton Lane from the Green Wedge whilst retaining Stoughton Lodge Farm on the northern side of the Lane is totally unacceptable, indeed incomprehensible
