Do you consider this part of the document is Sound? Yes
On which grounds do you consider the document unsound? (if applicable)
Do you consider the Document is Legally Compliant? Yes

The proposed development site will directly affect Public Footpath AT10 and reference to the need for its improvement of width and surfacing must be included. The path provides a direct link to the village centre and school and allowances for its improvement must be accounted for due to the increase in use and desire to access amenities through sustainable means. Designers must also be directed to ensure this route is overlooked by emerging properties to provide secure access.

What changes do you suggest to make the document legally compliant or sound? Requested policy inclusion to S27 to provide for improvements to the surfacing and drainage of Public Footpath AT10.
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.
