My support for this site is not without reservations. It needs to include a high percentage of self-build and social housing if it is to accommodate the needs and be in tune with the character of the town. It uses up a valuable green field site which provides Reepham with its rural appeal. There are significant transport and landscaping issues which would need to be overcome.

Reepham might look pretty on a postcard but the reality is that it is poorly-served by public transport and remote from employment centres. Any future developments sanctioned in the town will only add to the use of cars. Although it has basic infrastructure, the doctors' surgery and schools are over-stretched with no apparent prospect of expansion in the foreseeable future. It makes no sense to the local community for councillors to be considering allocating additional site for housing estates in the town when there are already two large committed sites which have yet to be progressed in any meaningful way.

Concerns were raised about access from the site to and from School Road/Whitwell Road. Given an adequate traffic management solution to the problem of vehicular access to the site and subject to the provision of sufficient land within the development area to allow for expansion of the primary school buildings and playing field the Council would have no objections to development on this site.

This site is adjacent to the primary school. It may be required as an area for future expansion. Also, It would affect the setting of the Grade II listed former Rectory.

Site GNLP0180 is supported because it will proviode a community benefit for the Primary School as it needs additional land to expand to cater for the existing allocations. Some 20/25 homes can be accommodated on this site as well as a widening of Mill Road to improve the junction with School Road/Whitwell Road.A significant amount of pre application work was undertaken and it is readily available to develop. The 'long term' allocation at Reepham Station of 20 plus years shouild be declared 'unsound'. Development at Reepham Station is still possible asit is within the approved Development boundary of the Town.

The landowner would be happy to consider the requirements of the Education Authority and NCC Highways should a housing scheme be progressed. During Broadland District Council's previous allocation process a scheme was developed indicating 0.5H set aside for possible expansion of the primary school together with localised road widening agreed with Highways. An indicative layout suggested 20-25 dwellings with a density to suit the site context. The land owner is willing to work with all potential stake holders moving forward and is flexible on density to achieve a proposal that addresses all needs.
