Representation ID: 168200
Respondent: Dr Tumi Hawkins
FIX F GREEN EDGES AND CORRIDORS - EASTERN EDGE
SPD has NOT properly addressed issue of strategic landscaping and is missing a substantial part of it.
ONLY 30m of woodland belt, and NOT within site but in existing wooded area. Not showing any woodland to fill existing gap. Contradicts Policy SS/7 and Members' intentions to provide protection and separation. Adding land moved boundary of BAD 50m closer to Highfields Caldecote. Boundary of Bourn Airfield & Highfields is end of gardens along West Drive. Gardens to provide 'Countryside separation', on premise that building in Highfields will only be allowed within development framework.
(1) 50m woodland belt planted.
(2) Gap MUST be filled both within and outside settlement boundary to same depth.
(3) Whilst footpath within woodland is acceptable, location of playing fields is not, especially when there is a significant risk of noise and lighting pollution.
