Description of village as a service village is inaccurate.
Further development at this end of the village is not needed. Development would have detrimental impact on quality of life for home owners/ residents on burlingham road whose homes currently enjoy countryside views. Further loss of good quality agricultural land in the village for disproportionate number of new homes is unnecessary.

Please note. The information about the village is not up to date. Facilities in the village have reduced significantly in recent years. The garage/car sales closed priot to 2017. The shop/post office and one of the pubs, which was also a take away closed in 2017. The other village pub closed early in 2018.The description of the village as a service village therefore seems inaccurate.
There has already been a disproportionate amount of development at this end of the village (some of this development is yet to be built.) and further development is unnecessary before 2035.
The proposed site is not practical due to chameryhall lane being a fast road up to the A47 used by cars, lorries and emergency vehicles and the proximity of the existing junction with burlingham road would be an issue from a safety point of view.
There would also be drainage issues for existing houses on burlingham road if there was development behind them due to the sloping land.
The proposal is to build on good quality farm land which is unnecessary.
Further development would have an adverse effect on the value and desirability of existing properties on burlingham road,which at the moment have countryside views including beautiful broadland sunsets which would be destroyed and residents quality of life affected if this unnecessary development is allowed.

South Walsham Is not a service village. The village post office and shop have closed, the plus the school is already over subscribed. The bus services cut drastically.
The parish council and local police have already identified a need for speed monitoring equipment as traffic becomes heavier and pavements remain insufficient and narrow. More housing will only add to this problem.

The local school is already over subscribed. It is difficult to get a timely appointment at the local gp in acle. Traffic and speeding is a problem already in the village with children being put in danger walking to school along narrow pavements. People who have paid over the odds to move to a rural village with countryside views are effectively being short changed by this proposed development. There are plenty of brown field sites around the NDR where no one's homes and life investments will be effected.

I object on 4 different streams:
1. Traffic congestion
2. Environmental impact
3. Lack of community open spaces in the area
4. Accident blackspot (A47 White House)

I am a property owner in South Walsham (currently let) and I object to this proposed development in South Walsham on a number of grounds:
1. Traffic congestion - there is very poor public transport provision to the village so any development will involve increased traffic from contractors working on the site and subsequently from new home owners. The existing roads infrastructure is poor with narrow roads and narrow, poorly maintained pavements in the village. There is no footpath at all on Chamery Lane meaning no safe pedestrian link to the village centre. Since the opening of the Northern Distributor Rd, traffic in the area has increased, putting strain on already ailing roads and there is a significant problem with speeding.
2. Environmental impact - the village is home to the internationally renowned Fairhaven Water Garden and home to diverse rare wildlife species including barn owls, otters, deer, and rare bird life. It is highly regarded for its attractive open countryside views. This development would have a negative impact on the unique topography, landscape and the biodiversity of the area.
3. Lack of community open spaces and facilities - there is no provision at this end of the village for a childrens play area since the small playground on Buckenham Rd was allowed to fall into disrepair by another property developer.
4. Accident blackspot A47 North Burlingham (Cantley White House)- the proposed site on Chamery Hall Lane is on a road which links directly to the A47 trunk road at an accident blackspot known locally as the White House. The site of hundreds of serious accidents, this notorious junction requires urgent remodelling to improve safety through the installation of a roundabout, and in its current form should certainly not be used by even more traffic from a new residential development in South Walsham.

I have spent time considering the pro's and con's of this development as a local resident. On balance I don't feel it would benefit the community. There is no longer a village shop. As I type there is also no public house. The only existing business is fairhaven garden centre. Further, the local preschool and school are small in size. I do not feel the village can support or sustain 30 extra houses and the extra population that comes with them. There is no infrastructure; the extra homes would serve only to increase population, stressing the school and residents.
