This site is utterly inappropriate. Far too big, would generate 1000+ cars per day traffic that would ruin Lammas and Coltishall. How could the villages or the bridge at Coltishall/Horstead cope? They couldn't.

It would create urban sprawl, a new village landlocked within one parish that already has 4 villages in it.

Not enough spaces at nearby schools or the GP surgeries.

PLEASE do not accept this site proposal. It would ruin this part of Broadland.

The site would more than double the size of Badersfield (which is where this site effectively is, it would have little initial impact upon Buxton at all as there is still a sizeable gap between the development and the majority of Lamas). The local primary schools within catchment would be unable to support the number of children that would come with that number of homes. Current transport links and road quality don't lend themselves to increased population either. This, along with the reduced quality of life during the building of it puts me firmly against this site proposal.

Ignores impact on the wider Badersfield village in North Norfolk
New community would use services existing community funds, damaging relations
Increases local use of the Norfolk Broads, damaging access
Site is adjacent to a Conservation Area Designation that would conflict aesthetics

Unsustainable for a community with inadequate local services to serve needs.

Full text:

The suitability is focused on the adjacent village of Buxton and Lamas. The impact should be assessed on the North Norfolk village of Badersfield. A further 720 homes to an existing community of 500 does not represent sustainable growth and has not been properly assessed. The North Norfolk HELAA study does not identify the village as a growth site.

Every homeowner funds and pays a service charge for amenities, landscaping, utilities and common ground. A new housing settlement outside of this structure would cause a huge social divide and integration issues.

Badersfield is nearby to the river Bure, part of the Norfolk Broads, the nearby river walks/access are already in great demand and unlikely to be sustained without damage if the adjacent village grows to this size.

Badersfield is a historic community listed under the RAF Coltishall Conservation Area Designation, this development could violate the principles and aesthetics of this designation among other issues.

Development of this site would be detrimental to all neighbouring communities (Badersfield, Lammas, Buxton, Scottow, Coltishall etc). The road infrastructure in the area is already inadequate in terms of capacity and could not support the increased volume of traffic from an additional community of this size. The extra vehicular circulation would cause significant disturbance and nuisance, and highway safety would, inevitably, be jeopardised.This proposed development would, moreover, adversely impact the essentially rural character of the area and would be'out-of scale' in terms of the volume of housing suggested for a relatively small areal of land.

the GNLP shows a growth prediction of 125,00 in 2011 going to 138/140,00 in 2036.

Bwith L had 694 houses in 2011 according to the census.

So pro rata we need another 72 to 83 houses of which 21 have already been approved on the Lion Road/Mead Close site, leaving about 50 more needed.

The allocations tabled, this one in particular, are totally out of scale, would cripple the infrastructure in terms of roads, schools, sugeries, shops etc etc.

I feel the number of houses you plan to build at Badersfield is totally unviable for this area. We are a village with limited facilities. Local schools already full. Doctors also full. Public transport is very poor & access to our village is restricted in poor weather. There is no way that this area is suitable for such a large housing estate. I hope a decision is made with logic & consideration of existing villagers here who pay an annual charge to maintain our village.

Representation focuses on proximity to Badersfield, local housing market, infrastructure, nature, light pollution, and proposal is too large, too remote and an example of Buxton PC nimbyism.

Full text:

Badersfield is a private estate owned and managed by a residents association and straddles Broadland and North Norfolk District Councils. It is also with a heritage area that is recognised by both DCs and English Heritage. The development would effectively triple the demographic size of the area, create extra burden on existing poor communication links and services (Anglia Water is already at capacity locally) and infrastructure. It would also contribute significantly to light pollution, something which we are working towards as residents and with our PC to reduce.The areas slopes down to the river, straddles a roman road and is populated by a wide variety of wildlife including deer, foxes, hares and rabbits.It is also enjoyed by families and dog walkers as a green space area. Such a proposal would mean a brick and tarmac boundary between what we currently enjoy and what we would no longer be able to see.
The proposal reads as if there has been little consideration as to the proximity of Badersfield to Buxton with Lamas. A majority of the community is within Scottow PC boundary, it would infringe on our quality of life and the mechanics of the community ( we all pay a separate service charge as well as council tax, so there is a feeling of 'double payment' already, many are owner occupiers who have move here to be away from larger scale developments, although some are tenants due to the rural 'out of town' and family/quality of life environment) although Broadland and BWLPC would benefit from this 'edge of town/village' settlement with little socio-econmic cost to the community or quality of life. This is unfair.
With the NDR, housing development should be focused at each of the roundabouts where new infrastructure has already been put, rather than pushing contamination out to the countryside. The size and scale of the development is also way too huge for its locality; exiting routes to Aylsham/A140/NDR would push through Buxton/Lamas (a very tight road that only just manages the flow with the frequent bends); an alternative via Coltishall along Hautbois Road to Wroxham and Norwich would push vehicles through weight restricted near-single carriageway over a narrow railway bridge and scene of frequent accidents; traffic to North Walsham would be OK going via the B1150 as would Norwich-bound traffic, assuming they do not use Hautbois Rd.
There have been massive developments at both Aylsham, Woodgate/Aylsham and North Walsham. The area around Badersfield is already developed with a mix of flats, 2,3, 4+ housing at affordable prices to both purchasers and tenant markets. A development of the scale proposed in the locality proposed would potentially flood the market with new housing within a stones throw but in an area where transport network would be insufficient to manage.

Redevelop the buildings on the old RAF base which are crying out for development on brownfield sites, before they fall into disrepair and support the local community not destroy it.
I strongly object to these proposals.

I object to more housing and construction taking place at this site. The local area does not have sufficiant infrastructure to support more housing. There is nothing to ressure us of an increase in school, medical, dental or transportation and road link services. These are already stretched to their limits or already over subscribed.
We also live in this location because of its rural, green setting. An increase in housing will detract from the currently appealing ambiance of the area.
Construction work would also be detrimental to the area with disruption on roads and increase in traffic.

Schools unable to cope now with demand and will be put under more strain.

Lack of local jobs already.

Wildlife that use the resiviour will be under threat and will potentially have their habitat ruined. Good green land used and wasted when there was and is potential to build on old R.A.F base.

Roads are unable to cope with more demand.

Sewage systems will not be able to cope unless there is huge improvement. Ditches and alike should not be used for sewage as it causes harm to wildlife and the environment.

Full text:

There area is unable to cope with a vast number of houses. Residents of Scottow & Badersfield where unable to get their children into the Buxton Primary School as they reached capicty very quickly and this will become increasingly difficult as more houses become erected in the Buxton Parish Council area. There isn't many local jobs for people to get making it harder for people to gain work.

The small back roads, Hautbois, Skeyton, Buxton are also unable to cope with increasing traffic. Hautbois Road being more regularly used but is never gritted to allow those who do use it get to and from the prison safely.

There is also a resiviour built on the proposed field, wildlife that currently form on it along with many many ducks will be affected and could essentially lose their habitat. Will this also become a danger when houses are built like those residents who protested against one in the North Walsham build? Yet it has been there for years!

Why build on good green land, the councils had the opportunity to utilise the old r.a.f base, houses could have been built in various areas with new roads adjoining the B1150 ETC.

Sewage is also at full capity, unless sweage systems improve, more houses will cause issues within these sewage systems as they will be unable to cope with demand.

It would be extremely misguided to build such a large number of homes in this particular area. The country roads in the area are already heavily congested, and the local school in Buxton is already full. My daughter is in reception, and I know of several other families who were not able to get their child into the school. They area could sustain a small number of infill homes - or reopening of buildings on the old RAF Coltishall estate - but not large scale house building.
It would meet significant local opposition.

The scale of the development is far too large given the existing services/infrastructure

Full text:

The local infrastructure is currently such that it could not support the scale of the proposed development. For example, roads are already inadequate for the number of vehicles accessing Badersfield (residents, prison and Scottow Enterprise Park, with the likelihood that the number of users of the latter will grow in the future). School places are in short supply (September 2017 saw in excess of 30 children from Badersfield alone needing Reception places - the catchment school, Buxton Primary School, serves Badersfield and several other villages/hamlets) and could not accommodate all these children. The proposal for the development cites that there are services in Badersfield but the roads in Badersfield are not adopted, residents pay a service charge for their upkeep, the landscaped areas and lighting etc. Residents of 720 homes would have a significant impact on these without financially contributing to them.
