  SHIT CREEK LIME CROSS DEVELOPMENT LATIMER UP TO 70 HOUSES

DANGEROUS OR WHAT - What visibility splay? Have East Sussex County Council gone mad. The hedge on the left prevents any car coming from the proposed site entrance, from seeing to the right. From this one easily obtained picture it is obvious that the approval of this entrance for up to 70 dwellings is a rubber stamp job by ESCC Highways. The proposed new entrance is the other side of a hill that has had a few accidents, so introducing a dangerous situation that could affect hundreds of travelers on the A271. Drivers coming from Windmill Hill will see the nose of a vehicle and may be forced to brake hard, when the driver seeking to exit Lime Cross, is forced to put the nose of his vehicle in the path of oncoming traffic. Approval of this application without any real investigation of the facts is suspect to say the least. The way Wealden got around that is to put the onus on the developer to prove their case - but in fact, in making a grant tends to egg on a developer, figures can sometimes be massaged. This was formerly application WD/2014/2663/MAO in the name of Tim Watson. It seems as though they don't mind a few fatalities if they can generate some money in a pot.

WD/2015/0090/MAO - GLEESON DEVELOPMENTS LTD

 

This application is not only contrary to Wealden's Local Plan, but is considered by many to be downright dangerous. The A271 is a narrow country road that is already overloaded - with many traffic jams in the village high street causing motorists serious delays on occasion. The increase in traffic from a dense residential development at this location is nothing short of madness.
