Capacity of Reepham Road and Drayton High Road to cope with increased traffic capacity

Full text:

Our comments relate to the impact any proposed developments would have on the capacity of the Reepham Road and Drayton High Road (A1067) to cope with the extra traffic that would be generated.
The Reepham and Drayton High Roads are already very busy at peak times. The Reepham Road traffic tails back at the Boundary Road junction, often over 100 metres. There are no discernible easy options to increase its capacity further.
Also the size of the two roundabouts recently added to the Reepham Road as part of the NDR development are relatively small and not designed to cope with large volumes of traffic on the Reepham Road.
Proposal GNL0337 relates to approximately 1400 dwellings. With most employment opportunities existing in Norwich this increased commuter traffic would have a big impact on the Reepham Road. GNL0337 create traffic pressure.
There are also numerous other proposals in the Hellesdon area which would further exacerbate pressure on the Reepham Road nearer the Boundary Road junction.
An alternative to commuting into Norwich from GNL0337 would be to use the Drayton High Road. This road is even more congested than the Reepham Road and there are no discernible easy options to increase its capacity further.

ref gnlp0337,I consider this proposal disproportionate in size to existing areas.I am concerned at possible lack of egress to these sites,especially the western site and am concerned at the effects of 2000+ extra vehicles on existing neighbouring road structure in terms of volumes, road safety and environment.

My concerns with this development:
- transport infrastructure, the NDR does nothing for the people who need to get into norwich, the fakenham road and then reepham road are already completely congested and can not hold any more traffic, let alone anther 1000 or 2000 cars
- infrastructure, can the doctors and dentists cope with another 2000 people,
- This area is well known for its village feel and green open spaces. If we fill these spaces with houses then it will just be another estate. Where are we supposed to walk the dogs and enjoy the countryside?

Object due to access, traffic and noise issues.

Full text:

There are several reasons to object to this proposal - infrastructure is clearly not adequate as the only possible access is via Breck Farm Lane and onto Kingswood Avenue before linking to the already overcrowded A1067.
Access is not possible onto the NDR or Fir Covert Road due to existing buildings, but could be possible over the Marriots Way bridge which appears to have been constructed well in excess of that required for a footbridge / bridleway and could possibly actually support vehicular traffic.
At present, the site is an effective buffer between the NDR and the existing upper part of Thorpe Marriott; this semi-rural area is well used by walkers and close building to each side of the Marriotts Way would not be welcomed. Sound attenuation for the NDR would also be an issue.
The eastern part of site 337 would be a more realistic proposition - the existing road network from Felsham Way always appears to have been designed to lead to further development to the north but objections regarding the loss of semi-rural open spaces and buffering to the NDR remain.

Strongly object to the doubling of the size of Thorpe Marriott with no extra infrastructure

Full text:

Site 0337 for 1400 houses = 2800 extra people minimum and all that's offered in return is a primary school and a 'local centre' whatever that might be. This development would double the size of Thorpe Marriott and turn Taverham/Thorpe Marriott into a small town rather than the village it claims to be and is way outside Broadland's settlement line. The existing infrastructure of roads, schools, surgeries etc would not cope with this growth; they hardly cope now with the current number of residents and congestion of the arterial roads into Norwich is severe at peak times. There would be no jobs created in the vicinity so increasing congestion further.
This land, currently farmland, is 'landlocked' and no access or egress routes have ever been made public. This site is much used by local residents for walking and as a route to gain cycling access to Marriott's Way.

The increased car pressure on the village of Drayton is huge concern. The road and parking infrastructure can not cope today with the volume of traffic - this additional load would cause significant issues and without sounding dramatic - a risk to life. The junction outside the petrol station is home to many near misses and accidents today.

Plus the impact on the natural life around Thorpe Marriott will be ruined and what is a beautiful place to live will be irreparably destroyed.

If this development happens there is a real need for an urgent western link to the NDR. There has already been an increase in traffic past the High school towards the NDR since part of it has opened. Lorries and other vehicles, above the weight limit already use Ringland Hills bridge and the weak bridge on Taverham Lane/Costessey Lane, this traffic will increase.

Lack of Infrastructure This site has been included in previous plans and rejected because the same issues so should still be rejected
Schools already at capacity although a Primary school is mentioned this will still have additional fallout to other schools especially the additional intake for the High School.
The main issue is with Doctors Already stretched with the existing population an additional increase in numbers will put unbearable strain on an already crippled system.
A site this size is unpractical for the area. Increase in noise and road movements on existing roads which is already busy at peak times.

Full text:

This site is totally unacceptable due to lack of infrastructure and size. This site is always up for inclusion in the plans every 5 years. It has been rejected every time due to the lack of infrastructure and provisions that are needed for a site this size. The current provisions that covers the existing settlements for doctors is at full capacity which proves a problem with waiting times as it stands. Any increase with such a development will bring the system down. Until such time as adequate facilities for the increase in population of a site this size is included this will always be completely unacceptable. 1400 homes will average 2800 people at least. Increase the traffic movements by at least 1400 per day using the existing network which is already struggling even with the addition of the NDR. A provision for a primary school is welcome which will alleviate the already heavily subscribed schools in the area but this does not take into account the additional students for the High school. The existing services is already running at close to capacity any additional developments would mean the serious need for updating the sewage and electricity infrastructure. What is the fascination with carving up the countryside for the so called need of houses. A site this size would almost double in area and size of Thorpe Marriott. This would change the outlook of Taverham which would mean that we lose the village affect and would become just another suburb of Norwich.
We object to this development and feel this is totally unacceptable for this area.

Til the NDR is a complete road to the southern bypass this development cannot safely go ahead, too much traffic in a small area .... a death waiting to happen.

Full text:

This site is very inappropriate for use as more development or housing. The area around Beech Ave has become a death trap waiting to happen with so many vehicular movements since the ingnorant non development in TOTAL of the NDR. This means cars have increased to a dangerous level with members of the public trying to find a short cut to the southern bypass. Beech Ave is a times a no go zone with too many cars trying to fight in all directions.
We must have a complete NDR before stupid decisions are made involving more and more traffic. Where as a council do you think all the cars will go. Use you intelligence and not just your greed for more revenue !!!!
This development will add to this dangerous situation.

Unacceptable development with a detrimental affect on local area. Existing services and amenities are not adequate for the size of development proposed.
As stated in my representation existing Doctors etc cannot cope with current population let alonethr influx of at least 1400 extra people using current facilities will cripple the existing system.
No provision for additional space in the High School and extra pressure on local schools.
Additional noise from an estimated 1400 car movements per day on already overcrowded roads.
This development has been rejected before on the same issues and nothing has changed so should be rejected again!

Existing Doctors etc cannot cope with the existing population let alone the additional influx that a development of this size would bring. The inclusion of a provision for a Primary school would alleviate some strain on the existing local over subscribed schools but does not take into account the additional intake at the High School.
A new development of 1400 homes on this site would have a detrimental effect on the existing community.
The existing road network already struggles even with the NDR in place. At least 1400 additional car movements can be expected on local roads if this development was to go ahead adding to the overcrowding already experienced. The extra traffic will bring additional noise and pollution issues
This area still has a village feel and appeal but any large development means we shall lose our village feel and become even closer to being just another suburb of Norwich.
This development would almost double the size and area of the existing area of Thorpe Marriott
This is not the first time the site and development has been proposed and pops up every time there is a development plan. This is exactly the same proposal as last time and was rejected before on the same issues. Nothing has changed so this site proposal should be rejected again based on previous proposals

Schools and doctors surgeries in the villages are at their limits now without a further possible 3000+ population increase.

I object to the proposed development as the infrastructure of Taverham sill not support it

If a hazard analysis is acrried out it will show that the potential risk of accidents is increased so that the proposed development should not be allowed to proceed. Especially in the proposed location.

Full text:

I Object to any proposed development for the following reasons
The additional proposed housing totalling 1799 new dwellings will bring an increase of approximately 4137 people based on the average household statistics for Norfolk.
According to the statistics this is a population increase in Taverham of approximately 40%. This means that the schools and all other community facilities will be overloaded and not capable of handling the proposed increase of population.
This also brings the additional load of approximately 4000 extra cars and vans to the village and we do not have the road infrastructure to handle the proposed increase. Taverham is a rural village where long traffic delays already exist at peak times as well as the potential risk of accidents due to increased traffic loads especially on Beech Avenue.
A simple hazard analysis, which must have been carried out to ensure compliance with HSE requirements, would show that this is an increased risk of accidents to children whose school is on Beech Avenue should be addressed before granting any permissions. Not to mention increased risks due to increased parking hazards.
Any new housing development must include the facility to house the minimum of 3 cars on the drive to avoid local congestion. The garage should not be included as a parking space
Published statistics show that over 50% do not park their car on their drives and approximately 20% actually use the garage for parking their cars. Therefore parking space on the proposed development must be included in the plans. A restriction shoud be included in the propoerty deeds on the type of vehicle to be parked as many houses in Taverham have business restrictions imposed in their deeds.
Basically Taverham does not have the facilities, roads or infrastructure to cope with this massive influx of people and associated requirements.
For instance with the current population of Taverham it takes approximately 40 minutes holding on to the phone to try and get to see a doctor but they a so overloaded it is not always possible to see a doctor. A population increase will make the wait worse to nearly an hour and the possibility of seeing a doctor more impossible than it currently is.
The mobile phone coverage and broadband in the area is one of the worse in the country, The addition of an additional 40% loading will make things worse.
Teverham council tax band is comprised of many houses in the D&E bracket and this bracket must then apply to all an d any new developments in the Taverham area.
The proposed development does not take into consideration the people of Taverham rather looking for a quick profit without any consideration for anyone else. There is existing land nearer to Norwich which would suit the submissions if the applications were for housing purposes and not just profit.

We concur with other residents objections; increased housing in the Taverham area, either as a single development or inconjuction with other proposed sites, would impact significantly on the current infrastructure and level of services. The findings highlight that there has been major development of Taverham and the neighbouring parishes. Also, the lack of a major road link between the NDR and A47 will only increase the traffic congestion on our narrow country lanes, currently experience on a daily basis; not to mention increased noise and air pollution and hazards to other road users and pedestrians.

Too many houses leading to over run schools - not enough provisions as it stands.

Over subscribed Doctors surgery in Taverham, making it impossible to get an appointment already.

Existing infrastructure around Taverham is not fit for purpose - Traffic going in and out of the city in rush hour have an average journey time into the city of about 50 minutes. This would only get worse.

Sandy lane is already a rat run. Traffic come down the road much too fast and do not slow down for our children or our elderly residents to allow them to cross safely.

Full text:

There are not enough provisions for doctors surgeries and schools in and around Taverham as it stands. This was meant to be rectified when Thorpe Marriott was built with the provision of schools and doctor surgery being placed in Thorpe Marriot but neither happened - unless our children are protected from having yet more over subscribed schools and we are absolutely guaranteed a new Gp surgery, then this site should not be given the green light for further homes. It seems the needs for the existing community are rough rided over for the sake of building new homes and meeting government targets and I firmly object to this. As for the infrastructure surrounding the Fakenham road - it is safe to say that as it stands it takes at least 50 minutes (and I'm being generous!!) to travers the Fakenham Road into the city centre at the moment and it is not fair to put more pressure/congestion on this road.

Where is the thought and care towards existing residents of this area?
We have already been swallowed up by Thorpe Marriot, which although well laid out, let down the parish of Taverham badly as a community, when the need for n additional school and Doctors surgery was not considered essential. Taverham Doctors surgery has over 9,000 patients at the moment and only a handful of doctors. The surgery states they struggle to get GP's to work in the practice. - Has any thought been put into how further patients will impact on the wellbeing of the GP's and other staff that we desperately need to retain? The amount of new homes is unsustainable for Taverham, just because we have land around us does not mean it should be the obvious choice for more homes.

Sandy lane is already a rat run for those from Thorpe Marriot and other near by residential areas to access the A47 - which makes it unsafe for our children to get to school as it is, due to the Lollipop lady only working to aid the first school children crossing the road and leaving children of the age of 7 upwards have to dice with death to cross the road to access Taverham Junior School, as traffic comes down the road much too fast and do not slow down for our children or our elderly residents to allow them to cross safely.

Enough is enough.

Prior to these proposals, Taverham was one of the most desirable postcodes to reside and is a quiet village. As affordable housing will be included, existing house prices would decrease substantially.

This with the extra traffic on our quiet country roads will make them into rat runs with congestion. Both Fir Covert & Reepham Road are extremely busy even with the NDR. Leave our village as it is.

I am concerned about the existing wildlife we have here, as more habitats would be sacrificed. Also the added levels of pollution this development would increase.

Concerns over increasing rental property in the area in the short to long term. Once housing stock exists, affordable housing easily transfers ownership to rental status. Tenants and Landlords have less interest in the area compared to owner-occupiers.

Concerns of increasingly dense developments like that of the Queens Hill, Norwich development, which is already showing signs of social deterioration and is impacting the local area.

Concerns that the proposed site would link directly to existing Thorpe Marriott, particularly via Broom Close and Breck Farm Lane and would create increased traffic to existing local road network and have significant impact on immediate-local residence.

Open landscape of Taverham's Marriott's Way will be compromised as will housing that directly overlooks the proposed development site. The inclusion of a roadless, carless landscaped strand between existing housing and the proposed site, running east to west linking between Thorpe Marriott Green and Taverham Garden Centre areas and incorporating a cycle path and walkway, would benefit all residence and in some way would retain an existing dog walk and have practical advantage linking to shops/pub. This also forms an open 'green' space between existing housing and the proposed new housing.
