Duty to co-operate? No

Representation Summary:

I object to the process followed when carrying out site assessments (desk top only). The Character Appraisal of Tacolneston, is internationally misleading/contrived with the aim to relocate Tacolneston away from the village school, Pub and Social club within the village/conservation area adjacent to heritage assets. Promoting sites 1200m away causes people to drive to services, parking is limited causing highway safety implications, vibration and pollution. (SNDC have no air quality assessments/data available) The school is full and further building expansion would cause harm to the setting.

Change suggested by respondent:

Obtain robust evidence on whether sites allocated in 2015 still not developed should be counted. Follow due process and re assess using 'on sites' visits aperitif. Consider potential school places to meet housing needs only without pressure on school expansion needs.
