Good Morning
I would like to register my support for the proposed Waterbeach Neighbourhood Plan.
I am a resident of the village, and I also run a small business. I believe that the whole of the proposed area should be part of the plan. As you will know most of the old married quarters site is now occupied and to me this is very much a part of the village. I believe that any further building on the barracks site should be part of the overall NDP for Waterbeach and that the people of this village need to be a part of any future planning process.

I would also like to see the rural character of the village maintained as part of any future expansion plans that may be pushed onto our community. This includes the protection of current open spaces and greenbelt sites especially on the fen edge. All building in the village needs to be looked at with care and consideration. I also have long term concerns about the sustainability of any new sites that are built on. This includes current sites which have been rejected by SCDC but passed by the government inspectors.

We have many issues in the village that need addressing including the issue of possible future flooding which I believe is a real possibility given recent events elsewhere. Poor Transport infrastructure, badly maintained Roads, parking and traffic issues should be looked at carefully to avoid huge problems and disruption for the community in the future. I believe that the residents of our village which includes Chittering should be able to be a part of the planning process, and have their legitimate concerns taken into consideration.

Finally I could not get the links to the online submission for the NDP to work, so I hope that this email will be sufficient and will be included as part of the response to the plan
