    These are some of the reasons to object to this application (please make sure you use your own words when submitting comments to the planning authority):

    • Loss of a highly valued landscape 
    • Unwelcome intrusion into the countryside;  long sweeping access road across the field 
    • Unacceptably High Impact on High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

    • Loss of public amenity value; views from the Martindale Community Centre 
    • Loss of amenity for residents in Cheeleys, Station Road and Church Lane; increase in noise and disturbance
    • Lack of local need for dwellings of this size (the village needs smaller more affordable housing)
    • Impact on the Conservation Area
    • Impact on the Grade I Listed Church
    • Impact on other Grade 2 Listed Buildings such as Timbers/Splinters  
    • Unsafe access off Church Lane; danger to children walking to school along Church Lane
