This street is already being developed along, with a large area of housing, having just been completed on the corner. The above road safety issues need to be considered before any further developments should take place in this area.

Full text:

Bergh Apton was a small rural farming village, recent developments and the solar farm construction has already seen an increase in traffic, including heavy construction traffic. The mainly single carriage way roads around the village,and the only two roads into the village are already showing signs of erosion from increased traffic and the bank on the side of Slade Lane is looking in danger of collapse. At school drop off and collections times the single roads are unsafe to walk on or for children to cycle to school on.
This road is already undergoing new development sites and with a large housing development on the corner of this road which has just been completed.

Respondent: Bergh Apton Parish Council

Representation:

* Development of this site would lead to continuous development on the east side of The Street and remove the only remaining hedging. The Parish Council considers that this would spoil the street scene.
* No mains drainage available
* The highway adjacent is narrow and evidence suggests there are already parking and speeding issues that any further development would exacerbate.
* This is a greenfield site.

This is the only greenfield site left to the east of The Street following recent development in this area.
Development as proposed would lead to the removal of hedging,thus spoiling the street scene.
The road is too narrow to safely support this site.
No mains drainage available.

This site is north of Dodger's Lane & would be a sister to BER2 approved by J.C.S. & now under construction.
Regrettably this proposal would lead to the removal of the only hedging remaining to the east of The Street & continuous linear development on a narrow road.
No mains drainage available

No mains drainage
The road cannot sustain more development.
On the east side of The Street there will be 9 developments just completed or being completed plus 5 more proposed with only three needed affordable housing.
Ribbon dvelopment has always been deemed inappropriate in rural areas but with the addition of this development the whole east side of The Street will be continuous development more suited to a suburban environment.

Bergh Apton Street is already in grave danger of losing its rural character due to the building work already taking place a further tranche of new houses in this area of the village is not what is required.

This is a greenfield site.

Traffic is likely to be from the A146 which is a dangerous junction. Also visibility at the Mill Road Crossroads from Mill Road is very restricted and becoming more dangerous with ever increasing traffic.

This is a greenfield site.

Major concerns for extra traffic through the village with an inadequate bus service for a working population. A dangerous junction with the A146 already, apart from additional traffic. The Mill Road Crossroads has very poor visibility from Mill Road, and improvement measures should be taken.

The Street does not clearly demonstrate the nature of the road and facilities as the village is categorised as "other". Development has already taken place on the Street and is taking place. Presently there is over development of The Street, all natural hedging for wildlife lost and the road is narrow presenting a real danger not to just walkers and dog walkers but people riding horses along here.
More suitable plots of land in the village - this is not one of them. Lack of drainage is also a problem. 60 mph speed also

Recent developments have already seen two sites on The Street.
This is a narrow, busy road subject to a 60 mph speed limit. There are no footpaths and the road is widely used by horse riders, buses, delivery vans and lorries, dog walkers, mothers with prams etc.
Any further development would seriously change the nature of the village and present unacceptable dangers to existing and any additional residents.

Development of the site would diminish the character of The Street. Two sites are currently under construction and a third would result in a somewhat more suburban feel about the location and lose the rustic quality that people generally move to rural areas to experience.
The highway adjacent is narrow and evidence suggests there are already parking and speeding issues that any further development would exacerbate.

Greenfield site.
2sites have already been used for development on The Street.
Further the development here would seriously change the nature and rural character of the village.
It is a narrow and busy road already., used by horse riders and walkers.
A lot of the old hedges have gone with the new developments and this area still has an old hedge.
No mains drainage.

Bergh Apton has had a number of developments recently and therefore is it fair for more?
The street, Bergh Apton is very narrow.
Increased traffic would mean more trying to access the A146. Slade lane leading to the A146 already has queuing traffic.
There are NO amenities in apart from a Post Office.
Alpington School is full to capacity.
There is NO mains drainage in the street.
The village prides itself on its conservation and environmental strategies and further development would cancel out its efforts.
The fields and rough ground surrounding Bergh Apton are home to a Barn Owl.

We are writing in response to the proposal for further development in Bergh Apton as listed above.
Please find listed the reasons we feel Bergh Apton is not suitable.
1. Bergh Apton has had a number of developments recently and therefore is it fair for more?
2. The street, Bergh Apton is very narrow (only 1 car's width in places) A number of these cottages do not have parking and therefore park in this very narrow road, making passing impossible. The road is already over used by long vehicles along with increased traffic, which is uses residents front drives as passing places.
3. Increased traffic would mean more vehicles trying to access the A146. Slade lane leading to the A146 already has queuing traffic during peak times.
4. There are NO amenities in Bergh Apton apart from a Post Office at Hellington Corner.
5. Alpington School (the nearest and most likely to be used by young families) is full to capacity.
6. There is NO mains drainage in the street and the cess pits have to be emptied regularly.
7. Bergh Apton as a village prides itself on its conservation and environmental strategies and further development would cancel out its efforts.
8. The fields and rough ground surrounding Bergh Apton are home to a resident Barn Owl. it is seen daily hunting particularly in The Street, Dodgers Lane and Church road.
We hope you will consider these points when making your decision.

To, Whom it may concern,
Please read enclosed notes Re - building In Bergh Apton,
I applied twice for a response form and neither of them ever arrived.
Many from Bergh Apton have tried to respond online but failed every time they tried to do so, and are puzzled to know why it wont accept their response.
Please consider mine, and others response, to the impact that more building sites will have on residents of Bergh Apton.
Thank you

GNLP0203 - This small field is situated right behind three grade two listed houses. These houses are well known and famous and often feature in books written about Norfolk because of their history and architectural interest including photographs.
A "Bergh Apton" barn owl and family reside close by and daily visit this field. Much loved and protected by Bergh Apton residents. This field lies directly behind these three, Grade two listed houses which means any houses built in this field will be right behind the gardens overlooking, not only the back gardens but all the living areas of the grade two listed houses, encroaching on their privacy. I am privileged to live in one of these houses. I bought the house because of its character, history and that no houses overlooked my garden or living area and the architectural interest.
I will be devastated if my views of trees and shrubs and wildlife are replaced by ugly modern houses that are not welcome in Bergh Apton and that my privacy will be lost, as every area of my living space will be overlooked. Our houses will become part of a housing estate. Please see notes at end.
GNLP0412 - Yes this site is a mess, but the advantage is that the trees and shrubs surround the site and it can hardly be seen. If a housing estate is built, the threes and shrubs will be replaced by fences. The housing estate will stick out like a sore thumb at the top of the farmers field - what an eyesore for Bergh Apton Residents!!
GNLP0533 - The street used to have Cottages, Farms and Character, Now its beginning to look like a modern coronation street. Houses after houses. I feel so sorry for the residents.
GNLP0203/0412 - Church Road is a narrow, bendy road which has a very limited amount of traffic- It is not designed to accommodate a volume of cars and can be very dangerous at times.
Berch Apton is a quiet, quirky village. The nearest doctors is 5 miles away - there are no schools, one bus per day, when the snow came, we were cut off for 5 days - nothing accessible. Supermarkets are a miles away, there are no amenities! The houses recently built are not in keeping with the area and many sitting empty.
Please, Please Please!!
No more houses in Bergh Apton. Please don't continue to ruin our village and spoil what is left of our parish. The architectural interest of the grade two listed houses will be beried amoungst a modern housing estate.

On behalf of herself and many others who tried to go online to protest, but found it was too difficult to get online because the site wouldn't allow them to do so.
