I oppose the application to build 250 new houses in Biddenham.

Provide any additional feedback as to why you support the application below:

Please tick the boxes that explain why you oppose this application:
I believe that Biddenham has special characteristics which set it apart from the expanding adjoining urban development and these must be maintained, as indeed is acknowledged by the Borough Council.
The land the developer proposes to build on is protected as open space by Borough Council policies and I wish it to remain protected.
Planning inspectors have recognised the importance of this visual separation between communities around Biddenham, which I agree with.
There is no safe access to the land proposed for development and traffic from 250 houses would negatively impact already existing traffic problems on Gold Lane, through the village and at the Bromham Road/Deep Spinney roundabout.
The environment and biodiversity would be adversely affected and the delicate balance of nature harmed.
As I understand it the Borough's housing needs are met within the current Local Plan so this additional housing is not required, and nor should it be allowed on this protected open space.
