Respondent: Upton with Fishley Parish Council

Representation:

Acle Parish Council objects to the proposal for 9 dwellings on this site. Because of highways restrictions, each house would need to have 2 or 3 parking spaces, plus parking for visitors, so only a development of 2 or 3 houses would fit on this land.

Poor access onto main road, too far for walking access to village (for most people), no room in lane for cars so all vehicles and visitor vehicles must be provided on site.

The Hill is a narrow lane with tight bends, no footpaths, and limited parking space. This already causes some difficulty with movement for larger delivery vehicles and farm vehicles. Any further development must have sufficient parking spaces within the property boundaries as there is insufficient space on the lane.

As there are no footpaths, pedestrian access up to the Reedham Road is by road only, and care has to be taken especially at night and with 2 blind corners on the lane. Additional properties / cars would exacerbate this situation.

The Hill is a rural setting away from the village and for most people, is too far for shopping by foot so most people would see a car as vital for everyday use.

The turning on to the Reedham Road (next to the proposed development) is on a bend and access is not easy here, and at this point cars tend to speed towards the village along the Reedham Road.
