  SHIT CREEK LIME CROSS DEVELOPMENT LATIMER UP TO 70 HOUSES

TREES & HEDGES - The countryside is being ripped apart by profit driven development that is inappropriate in circular economy terms. The village of Herstmonceux cannot support another 70 homes with the present lack of school spaces, shops and parking problems that will occur as residents double up on cars. Visitors will also need somewhere to put their cars. This field has always been deemed not for development. It remains to be seen if the conditions can be met in the short and long term. Once built on contamination of the soil is inevitable from pesticides and herbicides, meaning that a local historic well will become poisoned. How can any development be classed as sustainable if it destroys another long standing feature.

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.

 

 

 

The A271 junction is an accident waiting to happen

 

ACCIDENT CHART - This map is likely to change with more markers in the Herstmonceux area on the east side of the village.
