The houses are on a very narrow unadopted road, where it is possible, but very difficult for two cars to pass each other. With the impact of all the extra traffic that this development will cause it will certainly be a long term nuisance. As the road is unadopted it is maintained by contributions from the residents, it is nowhere near up to highway standards and has no footpaths. The road which will be built to serve these properties faces the entrance to my property and even now the occupants have to drive into the entrance to my driveway to access the property. The residents association are very concerned regarding access for emergency vehicles as there is a high likelyhood of vehicles which are servicing the proposed development (during the build and when they are built) will hamper emergency vehicles to access properties. Although we have not formalised it yet a local estate agent has suggested that the development will have a detrimental effect on the value of existing properties in the vacinity. There are drainage issues at the minute and one can only assume that this development could add to further problems.
