Representation Summary:

Scraptoft Parish Council has serious concerns about Traffic, Nature Reserve and Green Wedge.

Full text:

Scraptoft Parish Council (SPC) has serious concerns that a new settlement of 1200 houses won't cause major traffic problems in and around Scraptoft. It has not been demonstrated that the traffic impact of the proposal can be mitigated and that the traffic won't lead to major congestion on existing residential roads surrounding the site. We are also opposed to the loss of the nature reserve which the Parish Council has supported since its designation. The Strategic Development Area (SDA) as proposed is contrary to The Scraptoft Neighbourhood Plan (SNP) which was approved two years ago. In particular policy S11 in the SNP states that new development should not harm the network of local ecological features and habitats. The development will mean the loss of the Green Wedge (GW) to the east of Hamilton Lane (the land that comprises the golf course and the field between Hall Road and Hamilton Lane). the SDA will adjoin the the houses on Hamilton Lane within the city resulting in the coalescence of Scraptoft.

Received: 01/11/2017

Respondent: SCRAPTOFT Parish Council

Representation Summary:

But a school playing field is not a suitable use because it would restrict public access. It would also change the character and give it a more urban feel.

Representation Summary:

ss1 clause 1 does not manage development and settlement in the best way regarding Scraptoft Thurnby and Bushby, as this will lead to an over development of the area, Scraptoft having already had over 750 houses built over the last 6 years.
The residential road network around Scraptoft is not capable of sustaining a further 2500 cars on its already congested roads.
The loss of the green wedge to the north of Scraptoft would result in a loss of countryside turning Scraptoft into an urban environment, and the loss of it's village status.

Representation Summary:

I believe that Clause 4 fails as it does not safeguard the community's of Scraptoft Thurnby and Bushby. The Scraptoft North Development will render these villages just part of the expanding Leicester urban sprawl.
