Objection based on the grounds of road safety issues leading into and out of the village, either via Slade Lane or Burgate Lane into Poringland. Both of theses roads are unsuitable due to the roads being very narrow and have some 90 degree bends with no visabilty and passing is only an option in certain places on the side of the road.

In order to overcome the perceived Historic Environment constraint as set out in the Suitability Assessment in relation to the potential effect of any development on this land on the listed cottage in Reeders Lane, we would propose to set back any new development away from this building and to include a significant tree belt inside our boundary with this building. We own the whole of this field so the site allocation could be adjusted to further minimise any effect on this building.

This is a another site which is not suitable for development in Alpington. There needs to be green space between housing sites so that it does not become just another sprawling urban village.
Same issues with too much traffic on small and bendy roads.

This is not sustainable development planning. There are numerous reasons why introducing more vehicle movements into a small village that has very few footpaths and no lighting is a dangerous idea. The character and form of the village would be irrevocably damaged by this development and must not be allowed.

Alpington and Yelverton Parish Council objects to this site on a number of grounds:
1. The site is outside the development boundary of the village.
2. By adding further development the character and structure of the village will be materially and irrevocably affected.
3. The highway and surrounding road infrastructure was not designed for the volumes it currently has to deal with and therefore further pressure on the roads and junctions leading to significant safety issues and further congestion.
4. Existing roads around the village are having hedgerows, ditches, verges and bankings damaged by vehicles being forced to the edges in a bid to pass on narrow sections. This is as a result of too much traffic.
5. The village has no street lights and very few footpaths. Walking around the village where there are no footpaths is quite a dangerous pastime already due to the volumes of traffic; this would become more dangerous and probably cause some parishioners to stop walking and either stay at home or take their cars for the short journeys instead. This is not what village life is about.
6. The village has a very restricted bus service that is inconsistent and not conducive to a plausible travel plan. Additional new housing would not boost the potential passenger numbers sufficiently to warrant additional services and therefore every new house would add further vehicle movements to the roads by necessity. This is not sustainable development planning.
