Representations on New Local Plan Options - Q9. Do you have any comments regarding the proposed policy approach for Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground?

Representation ID: 5023

COMMENT Mr John L. Marlow

Summary:

Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground is a nuisance to residents in surrounding villages through excessive noise. It should be regarded as ripe for housing development.

Representation ID: 4976

COMMENT Mr John Martin

Summary:

Plans for the development of this site should include a large manufacturing facility rather than just more car storage space. Manufacturing, linked to the motor industry if this site is to continue with its connections with the motor industry would provide a significant number of jobs.

COMMENT Leciestershire County Council (Mrs Sharon Wiggins)

Summary:

Transport Comments
The County Highway Authority would have concerns if increased usage of the Proving Ground were to severely affect the safe and efficient operation of the local road network serving the site, which is essentially rural in nature. It would wish to see any site allocation policy address this issue, and to seek to ensure that appropriate mitigation measures are secured.

Representation ID: 4674

COMMENT Cllr Rosita Page

Summary:

Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground has been allowed to grow out of proportion without effective policies to control traffic and development.
Whilst supporting economic prosperity, the NLP must effectively manage future development and enforce present activities to protect the community from adverse effects.

Representation ID: 4300

COMMENT Sport England (Steven Beard)

Summary:

Is there evidence of need otherwise for this site to be used and developed as a sports venue particularly motorsport.

Representation ID: 3453

COMMENT Mrs Angela Lomas

Summary:

Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground is underused. However, any plans would have to be very sensitively thought through.

Representation ID: 3294

SUPPORT MR Michael Wilcox

Summary:

This facility is brown field underdeveloped and under utilised

Representation ID: 3220

COMMENT ARNESBY Parish Council (Terry Cane)

Summary:

Arnesby Parish Council would support the development of a strategic plan for Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground which involved consultation with all surrounding parish councils. Any development would need to include improved local infrastructure including roads and public transport.

Representation ID: 2833

COMMENT Mr David Jones

Summary:

Any significant development would require to significant improvement to the local roads to facilitate heavy goods vehicles and , when auctions are held, a steady stream of fast cars driven through nearby country lanes.
Whilst the main runway is in place there is always the possibility that proposals for large scale commercial use of the of airfield could be revived.

Representation ID: 1783

a large brown field site with great potential for mixed development.

Representation ID: 1782

Summary:

a good site for housing

Representation ID: 1585

SUPPORT mr Peter Mellalieu

Summary:

MH Homeowner

Representation ID: 1468

COMMENT Historic England (Claire Searson)

Summary:

A policy here should include provision for the protection of heritage assets, including the significance of the airfield itself as a non-designated heritage asset as well as assets within the adjacent villages.

Representation ID: 1168

COMMENT Mr Lewis Freeman

Summary:

The whole area would have to be re-developed as far as the traffic infrastructure is concerned. It is a long way from any reasonable road system and the roads in that area are subjected to heavy goods vehicles and when auctions are on, a steady stream of fast cars being driven through country lanes.

Representation ID: 1105

COMMENT Nicholas Jenkins

Summary:

Agree: local residents should be protected unlike, it would appear, those in Lutterworth & villages around Magna Park

Representation ID: 1076

COMMENT Kay Wilson

Summary:

I support the concept of protecting local residents from the adverse effects of development
