GNLP0157 - Tourism Use
This appears to be partly in the Broads area. Would welcome early discussions on this.
Likely to be too late to allocate anything in the Broads Local Plan. Other than Tourism
Use, no other details provided. What is this for? This is also partly within the Salhouse
Conservation Area.

employment, retail community uses, potential primary education provision and local
greenspace and biodiversity areas.

Redevelopment of site could give rise to new opportunities for pedestrian/cycleway
bridge over River Yare. The creation of this new connected access to Whitlingham and
the Broads National Park from the centre of Norwich would highlight the River
Wensum Strategy aspirations along with those of the Broads Local Access Forum.
Could have significant visual impact.

Please can you expand on what this means please? Why is this being de-allocated?
GNLP0068 - Residential-led mixed use development for an undetermined number of
dwellings (Despite its small size the site could support a high density development and
is thus considered suitable for the land availability assessment.)

There may be access issues if development was agreed at this location. The River

Riverside Walk and any development here would need to consider this in their
proposals. Could have significant visual impact. Issues around continued canalisation of
the river.

Respondent: Salhouse Parish Council

Representation:

No details of the proposed development are given, other than "Tourism Use". This offer refers to
land which is already in use as a seasonal campsite. The initial 3 year consent is currently being
reviewed. There have been numerous complaints so far in relation to vehicular access and parking.
The landowner has indicated to the Parish Council that he would like to develop the site more
permanently, with camping chalets, yurts, etc. The site is in a highly valued, environmentally
sensitive and historic landscape and a prime tourist amenity, within the Salhouse Concservation Area
and partly within the Broads Authority area.
We would have no objections to continued tourism use, provided (1) the proposed use covered no
greater an area and was designed to attract no more users than currently; (2) the density and visual
impact should be no greater than at present; (3) the use is seasonal as at present; (4) car parking and
access issues can be resolved without adversely affecting the landscape or environment and (5) in
the longer term, the development is only temporary, ie. it can ultimately be removed with no lasting
impact on the landscape.ONFI

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.
