All of the new housing seems to be at the north of Bruton with over 160 houses possibly being built (Cubis, South of Brewham Road & this development). All cars will have to navigate Quaperlake Street which is hard at the best of times. It was not built for the amount of traffic that will be going through.

The field is often waterlogged and flooded & building 60 houses at the bottom of it is likely cause even more flooding.

Parking is often impossible without the new Cubis housing being inhabited, let alone another 60 houses.  It is very hard to get an appointment at the doctors & they are unable to expand without moving. This move was stopped by English Partnership last year. If the doctors cannot cope now, they certainly won’t be able to cope with possible another 120 residents.

Brue Avenue is not large enough to handle over 60 extra cars & Brewham Road is too narrow to have access.

Once Cubis is built we will already have 3 play parks within less than a quarter of a mile radius. 4 would be overkill.

There aren’t any job prospects in Bruton for 60 extra houses plus Cubis. There will be more commuters causing a strain on the town’s infrastructure & more exhaust fumes. This is not environmentally friendly.
