Respondent: Mr Tim Welch

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

Given the existing pressure on local transport and social infrastructure I am concerned that Shenley Park would put extra load on nearby public services. Already stretched capacity at local GP and hospital health care services are significant concerns.
However transport is another concern. It is especially irrational to fail to replace policy RA.35 of the District Local Plan in the VALP and then put extra pressure on the rural roads that are the rat run between the A421 at Bottledump Roundabout and the A4146 at Newton Leys. A suitable replacement policy for RA.35 is essential particularly if Shenley Park proceeds.

Change suggested by respondent:

Greater commitment to strengthening existing infrastucture before laying more pressure on top is needed.
