URGENT: PIGEON PUBLIC CONSULTATION TIMES CHANGED

Pigeon Developments are releasing their next concept plan for 114 houses along Lorraine Way and Burstall Lane site and are inviting the community to review the proposed development on the following dates:

Friday 22nd 3.00pm to 8.00pm AND Saturday 23rd November 10.00am -3.00pm

Tithe Barn, Lower Street, Sproughton

The Sproughton Working Group would like to invite you to join us, in the Barley room on those days where members of the Parish Council and Working Group will be available to discus your views and comments on this latest proposal.

Our community was strongly opposed to the initial plans. We want to engage again in order to independently gather the community’s thoughts and feelings on this revised plan.

Areas we’d like your thoughts on include transport, travel, access, traffic, public parking, allotment land continuity, caravan storage, social infrastructurei, density, tree preservation, landscape conservation, light pollution, land use and surface water drainage to name but a few. There is a good deal more to be examined, categorized, valued and prioritised.

Sproughton must have a voice! Guided by you, we will continue to tease out the frailties and shortcomings in any developer’s approach to residential design and the overall environmental picture. The cumulative impact of this and the other proposed developments at Wolsey Grange, Hopkins Homes on B1113 behind the Old Police House (soon to be revised) and 3 major developments just along the road in Bramford must be taken into account.

THAT’S 1593 HOUSES IN A 5 MILE CORRIDOR!

If everyone keeps on demanding a better outcome, we can end up with a satisfactory result.

Please come and discuss your views in the Barley room after you have reviewed the plans in the Tithe Barn. We look forward very much to seeing you.
