Gail Darby Re. proposed allocation of land for housing at Reeves Field.
As a resident of King Arthur Close overlooking Reeves Field I wish to make the following Comments regarding the proposed allocation of land for housing on Reeves Field (Cheltenham College sports field) which I overlook.
- I strongly object to the suggested allocation of land at Reeves Field at Policy PR1a.
- The Reeves Field site comprises extremely valuable open space: an open lung of Space and sky, with open views across to the scarp. The openness contributes to the character of the Conservation area within which it is set, and loss of that openness would be of fundamental detriment to the conservation area and hence is strongly resisted.
- Development of "around 80' homes will have a serious impact on the amenity and outlook of the many properties that overlook the field from its eastern flank.
- The loss of sports pitches should be resisted, as they are in regular use by students... a use that is rightly part of curriculum and hence the loss must be justified, as is referred to in paragraph 6.52.
- Appendix E includes a table in which it is stated that the capacity of the site is 40 dwellings. What is being proposed: 40 or 80 dwellings?
- If half of the site is to be retained as open space I suggest that this is located on the eastern side to form a gap between any new homes and all those along the eastern boundary of the site.
- My home is very open to Reeves Field, and if it were to be allocated, then I would request that as and when a master plan is prepared it should show Considerable open space and structural landscaping along its eastern flank to soften impact on the amenities and outlook enjoyed by all those properties that overlook it.
- So, in Summary, I object in principle. However, if it were to be allocated I would prefer 40 to 80 homes, and would ask for provision of open space and landscaping along the eastern side in any master plan.

Deleted User 4 We can see that you have tentatively earmarked land on the south-east side of Shurdington Road, between Kidnappers' Lane and Highwood Avenue for housing. We strongly object to this proposed incursion into what is an area of calm, with a very attractive character related to its use for market gardens, smallholdings and allotments. It is a significant contributor to the character of the area, with abundant wildlife, and much loved by walkers. 21 Mar 2017 17:14
