Very unsuitable development area due to the above road safety issues.

Full text:

Recent developments and the solar farm construction has already seen an increase in traffic, including heavy construction traffic along Back Lane. The roads into the village are already showing signs of erosion from increased traffic and the bank on the side of Slade Lane is looking in danger of collapse. At school drop off and collections times the single roads are unsafe to walk on or for children to cycle to school on. Back Lane which this site would sit on is a very narrow road with only a few passing points, then stretching to the school and adding to an already very congested area at peak school times, where the paths are already eroded and unusable due to cars parking on them.

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 access constraint for this site as set out within the Suitability Assessment, we would propose that any future development scheme on this land includes a new footpath along the Bergh Apton Road frontage in order to create a stronger pedestrian link between these new homes and the school and the centre of the village.

I think this site is on Bergh Apton Rd, rather than Wheel Rd. Even with a new footpath I would be very concerned at the increase in traffic from 10 new houses so close to the school and pedestrian traffic. The small rural roads cannot cope safely with the amount of vehicles using them now.

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.

I object because this is outside the development boundary. It is on a very narrow road and the village roads and highways are already congested and damaged by the existing volume of traffic. This would severely damage the character and structure of the village. It would also cause safety concerns for pedestrians.
