As one of your parish councillors for the past four years, I have seen developments passing through the planning process with little concern for over-development in our village.
We are now at the point where there is almost no spare space left to build! In addition, our infrastructure has not kept up with the amount of new housing built. We are experiencing problems with traffic and flooding due to lack of considering the impact that new housing developments have on the rest of the village. I will resist Great Cornard turning into one big housing development by working to protect our local facilities such as our library, children's centre and essential bus services, and opposing the time and money wasted on ever-changing proposals to improve local roads.
Marjorie and the local Lib Dem team have been conducting surveys of local residents in Sudbury and Great Cornard .
In Great Cornard, you told us that you are concerned about losing local services and open spaces and want to see improvements in local transport links. There is a lot of concern in the village about new housing developments and that any new housing should prioritise housing for retirement
The natural beauty of the countryside on our doorstep is one of the features that attracts people to come and live here in Great Cornard, but proposed developments threaten our views of the landscape, ecology and open spaces we use for work, leisure and wellbeing. Marjorie will prioritise action to reduce air pollution and flooding by pushing for better maintenance of the infrastructure of the built-on areas of the village. She will also promote improvements to our public rights of way to increase safety and access for everyone
