Do you consider this part of the document is Sound? No
On which grounds do you consider the document unsound? (if applicable)
  • Not Justified
Do you consider the Document is Legally Compliant? Yes

The purpose of this email is to confirm an objection to Site WE15 being built over with industrial buildings and to make a request.  You may remember that years ago when J10A was first discussed, ABC said that the historic and ancient village of Mersham would be protected.  Otherwise the industrial buildings of WE15 would be up to the built edge of the village.


The objections are light, noise and CO2 pollution.  High traffic density, especially with trucks and vans.  Large overbearing buildings that would dominate the area damaging the environment and blighting the western side of the village.  It would be an eyesore when viewed from the North Downs and elsewhere.


You know all this but could I add my voice to those seeking a formal designation for Site WE15 as a green buffer zone or strategic gap in perpetuity and that Site U19 be screened with trees on its eastern edge.


What changes do you suggest to make the document legally compliant or sound?
Do you consider it necessary to participate at the oral part of the examination? No
Does your representation relate to an omission site (a site that has not been included). For example a site for Housing, Employment, Travellers, or Local Green Spaces.
