Respondent: Market Harborough Civic Society

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

While the principle of housing is accepted as an alternative to industry the development should not be allowed to go ahead until the traffic problems encountered in Northampton Road, Springfield Street to St Mary's Rd have been resolved.
The Market Harborough Transport Strategy 2016 is just a wish list. Projects not designed and approved, any land required is yet to be acquired,finance and programme not available. Not sustainable to require just a contribution to academic proposals.
The Local Centre at Western Avenue should be enhanced by the Council

MH3 Clause 1

Representation ID: 5377

Received: 26/10/2017

Respondent: Market Harborough Civic Society

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

The site adjoins a 400 housing development served by Alvington Way. The boundaries were carefully considered when the estate was approved. Development of the Farm will represent an intrusion in to the countryside setting of the estate, be detrimental to amenities of residents and views from the north, and detract from gap with Gt Bowden.
The estate and its roads were not designed to take extra traffic. There are no local facilities so the development will create extra traffic moving to and from those facilities. Walking, cycling and public transport not an alternative. Detrimental to residents.

Respondent: Market Harborough Civic Society

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

The Car Park serves many businesses in the Town Centre and is well used. It contains parking for disabled, short term parking and parking for motor bikes and cycles. not sustainable to suggest any spaces should be lost or can be provided elsewhere. Not aware of suitable alternative sites.
Retail floor space will require servicing which does not exist on the undeveloped land.Result in loss of parking and cause traffic conflicts.
Drainage tanks have been built under the car park- part of flood relief.
While we support efforts to enhance buildings, more positive action required.

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? No

Representation Summary:

We feel that there is little scope for new development on this site- too late. It already provides valuable parking space for the Town Centre businesses. Development will require more parking and land for service vehicles. These have not been identified in the Plan.
Wish to enhance buildings is supported but more positive action required.

H1 clause 2 MH

Representation ID: 5383

Received: 26/10/2017

Respondent: Market Harborough Civic Society

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Unrealistic to expect Market Harborough to accommodate a further 1140 dwellings by 2031. The Town already has to accommodate 2000 new dwellings but the residents have not been able to monitor the impact. No guarantee infrastructure can be provided. Competition between major sites could delay house building and provision of local centres.
If the Council requires more land they should look at sites which adjoin Airfield Farm, a development of 1400 dwellings, and benefit from the local facilities to be provided.
