Plans to build on land opposite Badersfield would be detrimental to the local area. This a is a rural community with limited infrastructure. Development of this size would significantly impact on the roads, the schools and the GP surgeries. Local residents have chosen not to live within an urban sprawl but instead enjoy the outlook of fields.

There is no room for these houses, the roads are not good enough, there are not enough schools or doctors to cater for this many more people. Killing this part of the countryside in order to make a profit would be an absolute travesty, and would make the area unlivable.

As a Badersfield residents for seven years, I have first hand appreciation of the limited infrastructure and services that are available to support families/homes in the local area. No space in schools, doctors and dentists. Few jobs. Many roads are private, or limited access. Public transport is minimal. The setting is rural. The surrounding land is high value working agricultural land. I object to any multi-home developments here as they are not sustainable without significant infrastructure and services improvements, increased resident prospects, and the agricultural impact being fully mitigated. None of this is quick or cheap to solve.

I fully object to the building of 720 houses on the land between Lamas and Badersfield. The infrastructure and schools alone cannot cope with that amount of houses. Badersfield is a small privately owned village and we would like to keep it that way

Large scale development on prime agricultural land irrevocably altering the rural nature of the area. The local single track roads especially through Lamas could not support the development. The local school is already over-subscribed. To utilise such land when land at the nearby airbase lies virtually empty is an act of vandalism.

I am deeply concerned about the proposal to build 720 homes on the edge of Lammas. Lammas is a small village with a narrow road and already carries a considerable amount of through traffic to various sites, in places with barely room for two vehicles to pass. The morning and evening rush hours are already extremely dangerous, hazardous for pedestrians and cyclists and due to the nature of the development of houses along the road, no room for improvement. The impact of 720 houses would be dangerous in the extreme for our village.

The current road network is over capacity making it dangerous to walk through Lammas, the schools and doctors are at capacity and the infrastructure is simply not there to support this kind of development. If more houses are needed, build on the edges of existing towns where there is, at least, some existing infrastructure.

Full text:

As a resident of Lammas, this proposed site is not only impractical but will cause huge issues for those people living in Badersfield, Lammas and Buxton.
The roads are not equipped to cope with any more traffic - Lammas is dangerous to walk through due to traffic using the village as a rat run. People living in the village with children are forced to drive their children to the school in Buxton as it is simply too dangerous to walk through. Development adjacent to Badersfield will increase the problem making it impossible to walk through the village safely.
Schools and Doctors Surgeries are at capacity and cannot cope with increased housing.
This land is greenfield land - brownfield sites should all be developed before it is even considered appropriate to develop greenfield land in completely inappropriate locations.

There road infrastructure is not suitable to support this proposal. With the majority of the traffic having to transit through Coltishall to get to Norwich it will only compound the already semi gridlocked situations that regularly occur in Coltishall village centre. It will also lead to the same thing happening in Horstead village centre the mini roundabout at the junction of the B1354 and B1150.

The existing services infrastructure are also almost at breaking point. Where are the school places and additional medical facilities going to come from!!

Can this little area take all these new homes we are already plaqued by all the viechles the roads cannot take the volume of traffic some people treat this as a racing track .
I am a person who has grown up in this area married in Lammas
So I have seen the changes that have happened and I believe that none have been positive and by bringing in more dwellings it will bring more negative impact
I hope some common sense and thought goes into the final decision and the local people feelings are taken into consideration. Kind regards Linda Lewis.

To whom it may concern.
I have lived in Little Hautbois for 20years so I have witnessed the RAF scottow running at full capacity with its comings and goings I have also witnessed the RAF base close .
I have seen the Bases properties sold off which brought many more vehicles with most homes with3 cars per dwelling the rubbish strewn along the Hautbois Road and the damage done to these relatively small roads some which cannot take the volume is traffic that uses them. Then Bure prison opens bringing even more traffic with staff driving to there work place.I believe that the RAF Base is being used for business,s also more units as places for work .
So by building these 720 homes x2 cars per household can we really accommodate all this with the road network that we have . This is a beautiful little area of Norfolk please let's keep it that way. Kind regards Chris Lewis.

Too many houses for the area.
Local schools are already full. GP surgery also very busy.
Would cause significant increase in road traffic.
Would cause loss of high grade agricultural land.

Full text:

The proposal for 720 houses is out of proportion to the rest of the parish, which currently has only around 700 homes in total. The current infrastructure, especially roads and schools, is not sufficient to cope with such a large increase in population.
Local primary schools, in Buxton and Coltishall, are already full and have been oversubscribed in recent years.
Local roads are mostly unclassified and there has been a significant increase in traffic since the former RAF housing stock has been sold off and HMP Bure opened. It is likely that those living in the proposed development would be travelling to Norwich for work and/or leisure, putting additional pressure on the bridges at Buxton/Lamas and Coltishall.
Public transport to the area is limited; there are buses between Norwich and North Walsham, but the service is not frequent enough for families to manage the demands of work and leisure especially with children attending after school clubs who are therefore unable to use the school buses. Many families in Badersfield have more than one car, so it is highly likely that a development of 720 homes would result in over 1000 additional vehicles on local roads, as well as delivery and other service traffic.
The site is a greenfield site, and identified as high quality farmland. in view of the increased requirement for agricultural produce to support the increasing population, building on this site will cause irreparable loss of agricultural resources.

700+ houses will add 1000s of daily car journeys to the roads in Badersfield, spilling over into Buxton/Lamas - and the road through Lammas is too narrow to handle a significant hike in local traffic. It is already clearly tricky for pedestrians to walk along safely. And Buxton school has got to the point where it can't take all Buxton children, let alone those of incoming families.

I have a number of comments to make: 1. My children go to Buxton Primary School, which is currently full. If more houses are built another school needs to be considered.
2. Buxton and Lammas has no GP surgery: GP services are already under extreme pressure. Building in small villages will not help this.
3. I do not think you should be overriding the village boundaries. Buxton is a quiet village and we are proud of our green spaces. Please leave it alone.

A development of this size is wholly inappropriate for Buxton with Lammas. The roads are narrow and would not be able to safely accommodate the increased traffic that such a development would generate.There are no footpaths in Lammas, and this would pose a danger to residents/pedestrians. The village school is already oversubscribed and would be unable to take in a huge influx of children. The land in question is valuable agricultural land and should remain as such,

Object to the over-development of the already stretched services in the local area.

Full text:

This is an over-development of the area. The local schools are already beyond capacity, the doctors surgeries cannot cope with the current population and the small roads from (Badersfield to Buxton and Badersifled to Coltishall) are treacherous in icy conditions with lots of accidents so 700+ more cars on the roads would only make this infrastructure more hazardous. The Badersfield residents pay maintenance fees to upkeep the estate but if there are more residents in the area this could deteriorate causing chaos between the two sites. It is a waste of agricultural land when the adjacent former RAF base sits as a brownfield site available for a much smaller residential development.

This development would fundamentally change the nature of our village, particularly as it transcends the existing boundary. Our local school is full with children from nearby bardersfield already occasionally having to go further afield. Dr's surgeries and dentist - nearest aylsham and coltishall full already and small local roads won't cope with additional cars. I believe this development would also increase risk of flooding and water flow into river bure thus having a detrimental effect on environment and existing residences.

1) Land off Mead Close [Buxton - adopted local plan allocation BUX1] - Owner (Mr Waller) is ill but wants to sell the option to a developer. £1500000 is too much and is not raising interest.
2) GNLP0297 - Mr Granes [?] owns the land - he offered it for building about 9 years ago. He took umbrage because he was not shown the plans before the Parish council. He hasn't relented. Mark Little from Savills will have a job to change Mr Crane's mind.
3) GNLP0601. Ideal - near road, amenities, etc.
