Call goes out to sign petition against plans for 250 homes in Elmswell
A petition is gaining strength in Elmswell over plans to build 250 new homes in School Road.
More than 70 comments have already been received by Mid Suffolk District Council over the outline plans which include concerns over traffic and the strain on schooling and the doctor’s surgery.
Now residents are being asked to add weight to a petition being organised in the village and can be signed at the Mace shop and Station Pharmacy, on Station Road, or at the Co-op, also in Station Road, on Saturday and Sunday.
Many residents have already outlined their objections to the council and Elmswell Parish Council is also against the scheme saying it would be unsustainable in terms of highways infrastructure and education provision, it would seriously impair the most important landscape aspect in the village, would be to the serious detriment of the historic listed built environment and would effectively sterilise the opportunity for the community to work towards the aspiration of a relief road taking traffic over the railway line and directly to A14.
