This area is already saturated with new developments and cannot take any more if without spoiling our country side. Local health centres are unable to cope with one already having closed its doors to taking new patients. Likewise the hospitals are unable to cope and have been for a number of years.

The existing infrastructure within Blofield has not kept pace with the developments already in progress. Until the doctors, school and transport is improved,any further additional housing will be detrimental to existing residents.
Also, this is agricultural land and brownfield sites should be used as a preference to land used for growing food.

Blofield has already had more than it's fair share of development. The road network/ access to the A47 and to the North needs to be improved before anymore development is allowed.

I would like to object in general not to just this development but to all further development in Blofield at this time.
Planning permission in Blofield has already been given already for 700 or so houses which is about half as many again, as the number in the existing village. Blofield is also affected by development in the neighbouring villages of Brundall, Blofield Heath and Lingwood, because all the traffic travels through Blofield or Brundall to get access to the A47. North Street in Blofield where the school, library and Doctors Surgery are located is narrow and is used by through traffic to from the North to the A47 and there is no easy way to improve the road layout.
I do not like NIMBYISM but I feel that Blofield has already been hit very hard because of the lack of a five year land supply in Broadland, meaning that all applications have been given permission.

Any further development in the Blofield / Brundall area should be restricted to sites directly alongside the A47 between the two villages. I strongly oppose building on agricultural land and land with outstanding countryside views, which will be lost forever.

This is an extension outside of the settlement area of the village on to Grade 2 agricultural land that is prone to being waterlogged and should not be allowed for housing. It is also an unsuitable development alongside the existing Lingwood Road which today is not safe for traffic in both directions. The building of houses on this site will in addition spoil the scenic landscape of the village.

Full text:

Blofield has in the very recent past had a number of large housing developments within the settlement area and still more are to be built in the near future, in particular the 175 houses at BLO1.

The village is already suffering infrastructure problems and it is wrong to extend the settlement area of the village south of Lingwood Road. This land is prone to being waterlogged and is Grade 2 agricultural land. It should not be built upon as it will also destroy the scenic views from existing and new housing north of Lingwood Road.

Much of Pound Lane is also a green footpath so it is marked incorrectly on the site proposal plan being shown as a if it is an existing road. It is also an unsuitable development alongside the existing Lingwood Road which is not safe now for traffic in both directions.

This is Grade 2 agricultural land. It is outside the village development envelope. It provides an important view and vista over the countryside which the Blofield Neighbourhood plan states should be protected from development. Blofield has been subjected to a large number of developments built or approved and local services are not coping. Lingwood Road has no pavements and is narrow in places, and HGV traffic causes problems passing. The land is often flooded. I oppose all proposed sites within Blofield until infrastucture issues have been addressed.

Blofield has already experienced a massive growth in new houses without having adequate infrastructure put in place to deal with the demands of a growing population. Lingwood Road is particularly hazardous especially when it rains or when two vehicles need to pass each other. To add more houses on Grade 2 agricultural land which gets waterlogged throughout the year would make this area even more difficult for drivers and pedestrians. There are virtually no pavements along this road for people walking. This is an unsuitable site for housing development.

SUBMITTED DURING STAGE B OF CONSULTATION

I object to this proposal for the following reasons;

* Lingwood Road is a minor road which already has challenges with traffic passing each other
and is dangerous for pedestrians. To build 125/149 new homes with cars entering onto this road would be unacceptable
* The land is high quality agricultural land and should be used as such. We have recently lost lots of agricultural land to housing
* The proposal is outside of the development envelope for settlement in the village
* This road and the surrounding area are subject to flooding, this has been a major challenge for the Keir site which drains onto Lingwood Road. The surrounding area is called Waterlow
* The Neighbourhood Plan, adopted in 2016, refers to flooding and this area in particular
* The Neighbourhood Plan, also refers to protecting rural views and vistas, the site proposed is such a view

* Blofield has already experienced tremendous growth with approx. 400 dwellings already committed, a further 75 in Blofield Heath and significant development in Brundall
* There have been no improvements to the infrastructure, such as roads and sewers
* The services such as schools, doctors, etc are already at or over capacity
* It is contrary to the Blofield Neighbourhood Plan adopted in 2016 which limits growth to small developments
* The roundabout at the Yarmouth road/ Cucumber lane junction is at capacity
* All this development is urbanising villages that are in a rural location.
