This site sits with in the protected river valley and is part of the diverse range of habitats that allows the wild space along the Yare to thrive whilst surrounded by dense human habitation. This in turn provides a place for recreation and renewal for the people of Norwich and South Norfolk. At this time of great expansion it is important that thoughtful planning decisions maintain and enhance the environment for those generations yet to come . The loss of this land will be part of a gradual erosion of this important natural resource

Any development in this area would be an encroachment on the green space and would fundamentally alter the character of this area of Cringleford.

With the heavy development already planned for Roundhouse it is important that the development boundaries are maintained to avoid all of the developments linking up in one large urban sprawl.

The site is adjacent to the Yard Valley flood plain in a locally protected green space. It borders an access path to Cringleford woods . Development would mean loss of a green space.
The access via Gurney Lane might be problematic as it is already difficult to get onto Colney Lane due to parked cars.

The damage to the yare valley building on this piece of land is unacceptable. This green space forms an important part of the yare valley and is ecologically important for the river and animals. This land is very well loved and should be protected for future generations. With the huge amount of land available in the plans that isn't adjacent to an important river and areas of protected land I can see no need to build on this land and further damage the yare valley. Green spaces are important for everyone's well being.

This is part of Yare Valley Conservation area with multiple birds, deer, rabbit, pheasants.
It is in the river overflow area and the water table is less then a foot below the surface.
If 40houses are to be built, that is an extra 80 cars travelling up and down
Colney Lane. During construction there will be all the lorries and heavy machinery going down the residential area of
Colney Lane.
Access is poor.

It seems hard to believe that a beautiful, tranquil, isolated natural space like this could even be considered for development. It's right in the river valley in the middle of woodland, and packed with wildlife. It would be hugely irresponsible to buid here. Please don't let this terrible proposal proceed.

I strongly object to this proposal that will destroy vital habitat for wildlife and a popular green space that is well used throughout the year. In summary, I object to: Colney 0158, 0253, 0514, 0140 A and B (this should not be granted status as a 'Development Site'); Cringleford 0244, 0461; Norwich 0133 E and F (Little Tinkers *not only a rescue home for the animals, but a place for humans to visit and interact with them daily), 0184. I oppose any development that will diminish the innate beauty or wildlife of the Yare Valley.

Full text:

This proposal will affect me personally as I enjoy this land for its calm, beauty, and wildlife. I run through the Yare Valley 3-4 times a week and regularly spot cormorants, herons, cattle egrets, kingfishers, ducks, swans, and squirrels that all make this area their home. The loss of this space would impact this wildlife whether it is through a direct loss of habitat or a severe disruption to the area surrounding their habitat. Many other people walk alone or with dogs on these same paths: the entire Yare Valley is well used by the public. Please preserve this green space for us all to continue to enjoy. I strongly object to: Colney 0158, 0253, 0514, 0140 A and B (this should not be granted status as a 'Development Site'); Cringleford 0244, 0461; Norwich 0133 E and F (Little Tinkers *not only a rescue home for the animals, but a place for people to visit and interact with them daily), 0184.

I object to more development along the Yare river valley. This area is full of wildlife. It is peaceful and tranquil, enjoyed by many. Having areas of natural woodland along a river valley is of huge benefit to the wellbeing of the people who enjoy it and to destroy it for the sake of more development would be irresponsible. The area is frequently flooded and the extra traffic down Gurney Lane in the development phase and afterwards would cause intolerable disruption to local residents.

29 years ago plans for this same site were rejected. It is a flood plain. Access via Gurney Lane is significantly worse than it was then. An already narrow road made worse by parked vehicles making conditions hazardous for both pedestrians and motorists. It is inconceivable that small pockets of the river valley are being considered for building when other more suitable areas are available and less likely to flood. Once the valley gone, it's lost for all future generations.

The Yare Valley is a special part of the environment accessible to the city and to Cringleford. It has been designated previously as a protected zone and should be preserved as such. This preservation is particularly important in the context of other development that has been approved.
A secondary objection to this site being included is the relatively limited access permitted from Colney and Gurney lanes. Additional traffic given the narrow configuration and existing parking issues would be unsustainable.

Such a proposal is senseless. Access via Gurney Lane is already tight for residents & made worse since UEA / Hospital staff park there. The site is a haven for wildlife and should remain so. Building 40 houses there would ruin the landscape and harm the local environment, as well as increase the traffic to significant levels. There are already plans to build over 1000 new homes off Cantley Lane & off Round House which are going to make massive changes to the local landscape. Therefore i strongly object to this part of the Yare Valley even being considered.

This area is green belt area and is used for wildlife (heron, parakeets, foxes, monkjac and cuckoos in spring), the community use area to dog walk. There are problems in nearby roads with flooding in drains, water and sewage and this proposed land is lower so would be more problematic. Guerney land is narrow construction traffic would have difficulty with access and 80 cars for potential house dwellers would cause extreme conjestion. There is no public transport for house dwellers so they would have to use vehicles causing traffic problems.

40 houses will have dramatic effect on the local infrastructure, with the potential for an additional 80 cars/day using a narrow lane already congested by locals and workers at the UEA and N&N Hospital.
Initial encroachment on the Yare Valley Green Infrastructure Corridor will have consequences that will impair its ability to function in the future.
The green corridor is currently well used and areas like this should be retained/increased to accommodate already planned and agreed development sites.
Ridiculous to build on a potential flood plain.

I strongly object to the plan to put a further 40 houses on the land at the bottom of Gurney Lane. 40 houses is approximately half as many houses as already exist on Colney Lane, so this is a considerable volume of new dwellings and additional vehicles and traffic. I note with dismay plans to put large numbers of new houses at the end of Colney Lane, by the wooden bollards, and even more beyond that point on the way towards the hospital. I fear for hugely increased pressure on local services such as schools, doctors surgeries and public transport.

The loss of green space and its impact on the wellbeing of humans/wildlife. The large number of development sites outside of the valley being proposed should more than meet the expected growth needs for housing and employment, without risking damage to what local plans identify as a Strategic Green Infrastructure Corridor. The present green corridor is much used and, in some places, overused, as evidenced by the worn condition of some of its paths. Rather than reduce its size, every effort should be made to increase its extent to meet the needs of a growing population from adjacent housing developments.
