This is the best site to develop for housing in Aylsham, having the least impact on the environment and with the best potential road access. There should be access links to the Buxton Road area (at the very least footpath / cycleway / emgergency links) and there would need to be a substantial reservation for landscaping and noise attenuation measures along the A140 frontage. However, it is questionable if the whole of this site would be required to meet genuine local housing demand in the plan period rather than demand from the wider city-region and beyond, given local constraints.

This site is unsuitable for development and should remain grade 2 agricultural land, by definition of very good quality.
The GNLP suggest accesses off Norwich and Buxton roads but neither are suitable.
At rush hours and weekends traffic on Norwich Road has grown exponentially following recent housing development, making access dangerous for residents of Copeman Road, Clover Road and Jegon Close. Additionally traffic between the bypass and Tesco greatly exceeds the 30mph limit. TESCO carpark overflows at those times so drivers use the adjacent Market Surgery carpark.
Burgh Road is extremely narrow with housing on both sides, has GNLP visited?

I think this site is unsuitable for development and should remain in use only for agriculture; it is grade 2 agricultural land, by definition of very good quality.
The GNLP suggests its main entrance would most likely be off Norwich Road with possibly secondary access to the Buxton Road. Neither of these accesses would be suitable.
The amount of traffic at rush hours and weekends along the Norwich Road has grown exponentially over the past year following the recent housing developments making access and egress difficult and potentially dangerous for residents of Copeman Road, Clover Road and Jegon Close. In addition to the quantity of traffic, the majority, in each direction between the bypass roundabout and the Tesco entrance, greatly exceed the 30mph speed limit adding to the problem. In addition, the TESCO carpark cannot deal with the number of vehicles at those times, tempting some drivers to try to park in the adjacent carpark of the Market Surgery which itself finds difficultly in coping with the cars of the patients.
The possible use of Burgh road as a secondary access suggests that whoever promoted this possibility has never visited the area for Burgh Road is extremely narrow with housing on both sides.

The site is available for development of some 300 - 350 dwellings, access, public open space, land for community use/s. (Please note this figure differs from our original representation as a result of additional assessment work) The published site suitability conclusions places an 'amber' assessment against: accessibility to services; utilities capacity and utilities infrastructure. However, Norfolk Homes has undertaken a full site and services survey which illustrates that there are no such constraints to development, and such should all be identified as 'green'. It is unclear to what the 'amber' against 'compatibility with neighbouring uses' refers.
