Embedding revised racing policies into your plan for the protection of the critical aspects of the HRI, which also allow for the broader development of Newmarket. • The HRI, working with all the authorities that are around Newmarket, to have a dialogue on the locations for long term growth. • Testing the suitability of a location for a New All-Weather Racecourse. • Development of the areas around Newmarket, away from the North East, that will meet the needs that have come out of this process.

WS146 & WS149. The rear of the site which is the old playing fields should be reserved as a site for a sports hub for George Lambton Playing Fields. With respect to WS149 development should only be allowed with the restoration of QUEENSBURY LODGE AND A QUALIFYING HORSE RACING RELATED INDUSTRY ON SITE SUCH AS A TRAINING STARTER YARD. Better railway station with more frequent stops. Only build on brownfield sites.

WS146 The location of this site, adjacent to the George Lambton playing fields, make it a prime location for a community and sports hub. To compensate for the lack of green space and sports facilities within the town, as much land as possible should be committed to sports and community use.

WS149 It is paramount that the historic Queensbury Lodge buildings on the High Street are restored as part of this plan and therefore an increase in the number of allocated houses on the site, may be required in order to facilitate restoration and improvement of this area.

The NHG acknowledges and supports the references to the importance of the HRI to Newmarket. It is noted that the list of constraints and opportunities includes reference to the need to manage the movement of vehicles and horses within the town to avoid conflict. It considers that these conflicts should be explained further, and that the Council demonstrate that it is clear on the conflicts that exist.

WS146. This land is available to bring forward, and is also allocated under the existing Local Plan SALP SA16(D). The land owner has mobilised a project to prepare a planning application for this site during 2021, which will consider both local housing and recreation needs.

Additional comments. 2.5.2 Newmarket serves the health, education, retail and leisure needs of the local catchment area, which includes settlements in both West Suffolk and East Cambridgeshire. It is of vital importance, to understand not only the needs of the residents of the three West Suffolk wards at the heart of the town, but also the needs of the residents of the town who live in East Cambridgeshire, the residents of the Suffolk villages to the north and east

WS145. Hatchfield is a completely inappropriate greenfield development that will damage Newmarket's horse training businesses by urbanising and bringing substantially more traffic to the town.
