As part of A47 improvements, support the call from Acle & Lingwood/Burlingham communities for a foot/cycle path alongside the A47. This can be achieved with just 300m of path to complete the link Blofield to Acle if provided from South Walsham Road to the current A47 layby. There is an existing path onwards to Acle. Highways England is resisting this minor work, despite support from 3 Parish Councils, Broadland, NCC, and MP Jerome Mayhew. Similarly, support the call for a crossing at North Burlingham, characterised as “vital” in the 2015 study by Broadland and NCC.

The need to support sustainable growth through the provision of infrastructure improvements is, such as schools and health centres, in principle, supported. However, the policy should recognise that infrastructure provision must be proportionate to each development, based on a local need and not undermine delivery.

The need to support sustainable growth through the provision of infrastructure improvements is, such as schools and health centres, in principle, supported. However, the policy should recognise that infrastructure provision must be proportionate to each development, based on a local need and not undermine delivery.
As detailed in comments made to Question 17 and 25, when considering infrastructure, consideration should be given to whether it is unviable for some of the larger strategic sites, which have high infrastructure costs associated with their delivery i.e. schools and health centres, to pay the Community Infrastructure Levy, in addition to the policy requirements of the Local Plan. The potential for infrastructure costs which are specific to larger strategic sites to be secured by Section 106 planning obligations, in order to ensure that such sites are deliverable and, importantly, that there is certainty regarding the delivery of the infrastructure, should be explored. This approach, which has been adopted by Mid Suffolk District Council, is entirely consistent with the Community Infrastructure Regulations (2019).

Consideration should be given to the potential for the larger strategic-scale housing sites (i.e. sites of 1000+ dwellings) to be CIL exempt, or subject to a bespoke reduced CIL charge, to reflect the site-specific infrastructure costs, and support delivery of the larger-scale sites.

The proposed new settlement Honingham Thorpe would deliver on-site infrastructure, services and facilities prior to first occupation, for some services this would likely be in the form of smaller temporary spaces which evolve as the community grows. Clarion believe such provision is essential to create a vibrant and sustainable community, and to reduce pressures on existing community facilities elsewhere.

Policy 4 – Strategic Infrastructure outlines the key elements to strategic infrastructure improvements that will be undertaken to support timely delivery of growth. The approach for on-site and local infrastructure, services and facilities is as follows:
‘Development proposals will provide on-site services and facilities and support local infrastructure capacity improvements through on-site provision, providing land and developer contributions.’

This approach is supported by our client and as proposed at their site, Land between Shelfanger Road and Mount Street (Site Reference: GNLP0341) there would be considerable community benefits from the provision of land to facilitate the expansion of the medical centre and the enhancements and public accessibility of a large area of open space.

There is scope within this part of Policy 4 to also address the need to provide community uses on larger schemes that will benefit both future and existing residents.

(Please refer to attached document for full representation/greater clarity. Where the attachment contains ‘struck through’ text, wording has been omitted, it is not possible to format the text in the same way here.)

The policy requires ' Development proposals will provide on-site services and facilities and support local infrastructure capacity improvements through on-site provision, providing land and developer contributions.'. We are concerned that the wording of this requirement does not adequately reflect the ability that individual developers have in respect of infrastructure delivery. For example, a developer can provide the land and funding for a school within a particular site but has no ability to actually deliver a school service. Furthermore, the support to local capacity improvements currently suggests that all of the measures listed are necessary, which may not be appropriate in all cases. It is suggested that the wording is amended to reflect this, and a suggested amendment is provided below.

"Development proposals will be expected to mitigate the impacts of the scheme proposed on local infrastructure through either the provision of on-site services and facilities (where appropriate and necessary) and/or by and supporting local infrastructure capacity improvements.

As outlined in the attached submission, the site is suitable, available, achievable and viable, and is therefore deliverable within the plan period.
Development in this location would represent sustainable development, as defined within the National Planning Policy Framework. Aylsham, as a Main Town, with the fourth highest level of shops and services outside Norwich, is already acknowledged as a highly sustainable location for residential growth, as evidenced through the significant quantum of development that has been approved in the last decade, and the attached text demonstrates that this specific site is a suitable location for further development in all respects.
Economically, residential development here in the plan period would help sustain and enhance local
services and facilities, and would also provide employment opportunities during the construction period.
Socially, the scale of development envisaged is such that it will enable the creation of a strong, vibrant and
healthy community, with easy access to existing and planned local services and facilities, as well as onsite
open space. A wide mix of dwelling types, sizes and tenures will be provided to meet local needs, and
CIL payments will ensure the provision of the necessary health and cultural facilities. The site is located
in close proximity to established communities in Aylsham, which should assist in achieving social
integration between the existing and new residents.
Environmentally, the site is located close to a range of services and facilities, and enjoys good access to
sustainable transport options providing access to the extensive array of facilities and services available
within Norwich and further afield. Residents will be able to meet their day-to-day needs easily and without
the need to use their car, assisting in reducing pollution and minimising the contribution to climate change.
On this basis, the site should be taken forward as an allocation, and is capable of making an important
contribution to the planned growth of the Greater Norwich Area in the period to 2036.
