Your letter/comments needed on the ERYC portal! From Cllr. Terry Gill

I note that there is only 5 residents that have commented on the Planning Portal for the Phase 4 Barratt development. If you feel strongly either way on these plans the best way to make you voice heard by the Council Planning Department is either send in a letter by post or register to comment via the Web Portal. There is small blue icon with 'Register' alongside at the top of the page of each application. It only takes a few minutes. Cllr. Terry Gill

These are the ONLY comments under 'The Public'' tab on the ERYC planning portal for the phase 4 houses. Gill Hunter you do have one on here. Jennifer Hallas was an objection as she has spoken at the meetings but they mark as neutral! If you are sending a letter in please ensure you use the right planning numbers (see our letter March 2020 on this page) and that you are OBJECTING. You can also add comments online which is why I think some the below are in different formats.

I am shocked that yet another housing estate has been planned for here. Although on the original plan this area was deemed residential it was also reserved for other buildings which would bring more services to Brough. It makes me concerned that these won't be built.

Already there is work being carried out on land East to the current building site being prepared for houses. So why not utilise that for houses as agreed. What concerns me is that Brough will be left with another large housing estate and nothing else. Brough has continued to grow at a large rate and does not have the infrastructure to cope with any more houses. The surrounding villages have also expanded putting more and more pressure on the town.

It was agreed to review and improve access to and from Brough at the site of the 4 way lights which provide the only way in and out of Brough for all Brough, Elloughton and Welton residents. I don't believe there has been an update or a plan agreed on this and therefore object to this proposed development as infrastructure has not even been signed off yet or built.

Every morning there is a traffic jam to get out of Brough between 7.30 and 8.30am and as campaigners have shown a real danger to those trying to enter the village at 4-6pm due to queues on the slip road and speeding cars and lorries getting dangerously close to a crash. We need a another way to leave the village and the sensible approach would be to link to the infrastructure at Melton which is thriving and continuing to grow. This has the infrastructure and the safe slipways to join the a63. It would relive Brough town. I do not believe the current relief road would relive Brough nor Elloughton as it couldn't be used to get to the otherside of the town due to the small bridge over the railway near the ferry inn. The only thing it would do would do is provide a link to the ever growing housing estate.

As residents we were promised big things with the Brough south development. Increase in local jobs and amenties and a high street for local residents. The school wasn't even considered when the first plan went out and was an after thought. But now it just seems as though we will end up with 750 or more homes (each with 1-2 cars), an aldi and a school.

Another concern is the flood risk. I have been a resident the past 12 years and have seen that area flood from a high tide and more recently heavy rain. Flooding is becoming ever more frequent and especially with the situation over in Snaith area that was only down the road from us. I don't believe we should build this close to the humber on a known flood plain.

This is evident in the new school. The playground is saturated and the field boggy. The new roads in the housing estate have flooded also with huge puddles at the side of the road.

I strongly object to this housing estate at this moment in time. Infrastructure is required first and must be tested to ensure it can meet the current demand at this time.

The current site has permanent standing water on it, not just on the areas waiting development but also on the land which has been raised and built on; this has been the case all winter, and the school's playing field is practically unusable. This area is a flood plain, and all objections raised for the initial development still stand. The Government has recently discussed the validity of continuing to build on flood plains, and the East Riding has itself suffered from flooding on several occasions, so expanding building work even further along this plain does not make any sense whatsoever. People buying the houses will have permanently flooded gardens, and the area will suffer as a whole if flood water can no longer soak away.''
