Permanent residence are better suited within the built up area of the village allowing good access to community facilities and school. This area was marked as part of the green corridor e.g. not subject to housing in local plans.

Respondent: Great and Little Plumstead Parish Council

Representation:

The Parish Council objects to this site allocation as it does not comply with Policy 1 of the Great and Little Plumstead Parish Council Neighbourhood Plan. Which states 'New development will respect and retain the intergrity of Great Plumstead, Little Plumstead and Thorpe End Green Village as distinct character as individual villages and, in particular, it is important that coalescence is avoided between Thorpe End Garden Village and development related to the surrounding settlements, ensuring that Thorpe End Garden Village retains the appearance and character of a separate garden village"

Respondent: Rackheath Parish Council

Representation:

No new sites should be allocated for house building in Rackheath until all the current 3,600 housing allocations have been developed. Concerns about impact of mass development to local community, infrastructure and to green space.

Full text:

* Rackheath has already been allocated 3,600+ new homes in the Local
Plan to 2036 and no new sites should be allocated for house building until
all existing allocations have been developed.
* The shear volume of housing planned within Rackheath will impact on the
local community and its infrastructure, out of proportion to that of any
other area in Norwich or the surrounding area.
* Additional developments are threatening the countryside around Rackheath
and green spaces should be retained between Rackheath and other villages
and a green corridor should be retained between Rackheath and North
Norwich.
* The allocation of any further development sites will allow developers to
'cherry pick' the more favourable rural sites while banking other less
attractive sites
* There is a lack of infrastructure to service new developments e.g. health
service, schools, early years provision. No phasing of community
infrastructure is in place to meet demands.
* There is a lack of public transport e.g. no sustainable bus service
* New developments are planned in isolation without physical or community
links to integrate with existing or other developments.
* Pocket developments have been created producing an insular attitude
rather than a sense of community identity from those that live there.
* The reduction in the provision of the amount of affordable housing and
suitable retirement properties in developments is threatening the ability
of families to stay living in the same community.

Respondent: Salhouse Parish Council

Representation:

Considering the proposed sites for Rackheath, site numbers GNLP 0095, 2166, 2092 and 2040 will all contribute to the effect of continuous development from the Norwich city boundary to Salhouse, especially if the earlier sites nos. GNLP 0487 (now Planning Application 20170243), 0493, 0164 and 0163 were all allowed to go ahead within the Salhouse parish boundary. Development of these sites would conflict with Policy 2 of the JCS and Broadland Policy EN 2 as it would fail to maintain the strategic gap between the communities of Sprowston and Rackheath and Rackheath and Salhouse respectively, and would damage the landscape settings of the two villages and their approaches. It would
also conflict with Policy GT 2 Green Infrastructure of the Broadland North East Growth Triangle AAP which seeks to protect an area either side of the NDR from inappropriate development. Various other proposed sites in Rackheath also conflict with this policy.

Salhouse PC previously submitted comments on the sites put forward in the 2016 'Call for Sites' consultation. These comments submitted in January 2017 still stand and are attached for reference.

Two changes have occurred since early 2017. First, our previous comments included references to the Draft Salhouse Neighbourhood Plan, which was subsequently adopted in July 2017. Second, since March 2018, the land supply in Broadland District has been calculated at more than 5 years.

Salhouse PC believes that the 'Call for Sites' process is fundamentally flawed, in that it encourages opportunistic offers of sites instead of being plan-led. A further local concern is that the services infrastructure (particularly mains water and electricity and sewerage) in Salhouse is in a very poor state. No additional housing development should be considered without these services being completely upgraded to meet the extra demand.

Although there are no new sites listed for the Parish of Salhouse in the latest 2018 submissions, there are sites in adjacent parishes which approach very closely to Salhouse's boundaries, raising the prospect of continuous housing from Norwich to Salhouse is all the options were taken up.

See attachment for full details of submission.
