We, residents of Orford and surrounding area, call on East Suffolk Council to reject application DC/18/5246/FUL for the development of Friends Garage, Front Street, Orford. The primary reasons for this are as follows;
The site is being over developed.
The proposed housing does not relate to the architecture in the adjacent conservation area at all.
Insufficient area and inadequate location are being proposed for the replacement fuel station and commercial/retail space.
Access in and out of fuel and commercial/retail area should be on Front Street. Access via Ferry Road as shown is unacceptable for practical, safety and congestion reasons.
