Bruton Preferred Options 

Settlement map:Bruton BT1

I am against this development because:

1. Access to this site either from the Brewham Road or Brue Avenue is unacceptable. The roads are two narrow/not built for that level of traffic on Brue Avenue and totally impractical on the Brewham road due to dangerous traffic flows.

2. The infrastructure of Bruton is already under strain (parking/doctors surgery etc) and this level of housing will only exacerbate the problem.

3. There is a flooding problem on this field, which this development will only make worse.

4. This number of new houses in Bruton (152 up to 2036) will destroy the very essence of why Bruton is such an attractive place to live.

5. This number of houses will greatly increase the number of cars in and around Bruton, adding to pollution/environmental problems. This is even before the new Cubis houses (Opposite Cuckoo Hill) come on stream.
