Gamlingay Neighbourhood Plan Submission version

Representation ID: 56551

Received: 21/11/2021

Respondent: Ms Colleen Blyth

Representation Summary:

The plan appears too rigid with regard to currently privately owned open space, which may be gifted to the people of Gamlingay, for the benefit of the village.
It doesn’t allow any opportunity for such land to be gifted, assuming it will be green space, despite private land potentially being sold to developers for unpalatable mass housing in future, against affected residents’ wishes. A gift in perpetuity to the village would prevent this, and help maintain the character of the village.
The plan ignores the opportunity and potential for such gifts.
