Less appropriate for the village than sites off Ipswich Road for reasons of impact and infrastructure.

I strongly feel that additional house building should be on sites like this on the edge of the village, thereby alleviating the heavy traffic going up Rectory Road and Harvey Lane. Future house building should also take into account providing at two off road parking spaces for each home, most families have at least two vehicles now. Consideration should also be given to the amenities provided in the village. We now have no Doctor's surgery and the school is near bursting point.

The 3.86 acre site GNLP0217 is one of the largest sites which lies between our property and the Bridge Farm on the Norwich Road.
The proposals, involving loss of Farmland and change of use from Farmland to residential . Creats Urban sprawl, inappropriate Development, and as some of other sites spoil the charm and character of the village. Will involve massive construction problems and disruption. Will require mains drains which are not there for other properties this side of Dickleburgh

Housing on this site would lie to the South and West of us and completely ruin our outlook

I believe as a resident of Dickleburgh for 53 years, that this is one of four sites that would improve the village and have the safest traffic routes to the A140 trunk road. This site would limit the pressures on Rectory Road and Harvey Lane due to school drop off/pick up trips. Any property's built on this site must have enough parking for the number of bedrooms in the property and roads must be wide enough for two vans to pass. Each site should include play areas in the planning applications and I necessary an on site parking area.

This is less appropriate than other sites such as GNLP0350 / 0361 / 0498 all at the southern end of the village but I would support development here providing suitable access to the A140 was provided at this end of the village such as a roundabout as the current junction would be unsafe for the volume of traffic.

This site would not be subject to flooding but would require waste water piping across the water course as cess pits would be a health hazard. Car drivers would be more likely to use The Street to get to the southern access to the A140 than the dangerous junction to the north.

This is a significant area of farmland that would be lost. It would increase traffic along the village road. Northbound traffic in particular would exacerbate tailbacks to the A140 junction - already a danger zone.

Car drivers from this site would be very likely to avoid using the dangerous north junction onto the A140 by travelling through the village to the safe southern roundabout and adding to the congestion. It is unlikely to be subject to flooding.

The Parish Council objects on the grounds that any additional traffic on The Street will be harmful to the village infrastructure and dangerous to residents. The nearby wildlife site Dickleburgh Moor is an important amenity for the village.

The Parish Council objects on the grounds of harm to the traffic infrastructure of the village. All traffic from this site will go through south the village to get to the A140, exacerbating already existing problems.

Our general policy statement:

THE GNLP AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENT IN OUR VILLAGES: A POLICY STATEMENT BY DICKLEBURGH AND RUSHALL PARISH COUNCIL

As a community, Dickleburgh and Rushall are committed to playing their part in the GNLP's plan for future housing. We believe some new housing, particularly that which is affordable, is important for the future health and prosperity of our village.
At the same time, it is essential that this growth is sustainable, proportionate and sited so that it does not place an intolerable strain on the infrastructure and character of our villages.
After careful discussion of the development options, two public meetings with residents and an opinion poll within Dickleburgh, the Parish Council has reached the following conclusions concerning future housing development:

1. The response to the call for sites has so far produced 13 proposals around the village of Dickleburgh.

2. Currently, the most urgent problem facing Dickleburgh concerns roads. Each of the three road in the centre of the village is already experiencing major traffic problems. It is essential, for reasons of safety to residents and drivers, that these are not exacerbated.
The Street is an extremely narrow road which, in spite of 20mph speed limit (widely ignored by drivers) struggles to cope with traffic, in particular heavy goods vehicles going to and from the Smurfit Kappa depot in Rushall.
Rectory Road, with houses on each side, parked cars and no pedestrian crossing has become very dangerous to pedestrians. Again, lorries from Smurfit Kappa are the main problem.
Harvey Lane, a narrow road on which the school, playground and village centre are situated, has had widely-publicised problems of congestion which will be worsened by a development of 22 houses, currently under construction.

3. The Parish Council is determined that what is already a bad and dangerous traffic situation in Dickleburgh must not be made worse by any new housing development. For this reason, we believe that any future development should take place to the south of the village off the Ipswich Road (GNLP0350 and GNLP0498; if there are problems with those sites, we favour GNLP0498).

4. New houses on that side of the village would provide residents with safe and easy pedestrian access to the village services, without adding to Dickleburgh's traffic problems.

5. We strongly oppose any potential sites that will add to the traffic on the three roads mentioned above. Our opposition includes sites on the Norwich Road to the north of the village. Local experience has shown that drivers will avoid the difficult junction on to the A140 to the north of the village, preferring to use the roundabout to the south. In other words, any Norwich Road development would add to pressure on The Street.

6. A survey for our proposed Neighbourhood Plan revealed, in addition, that residents on the Rectory Road greatly value the prospect from the village of Dickleburgh Moor, which is being developed as a wildlife site. In other words, development off the Ipswich Road has the added advantage of causing least harm to amenities enjoyed by current residents.

7. Dickleburgh Primary School, of which we are very proud, is now reaching capacity and will have no further potential for expansion.

8. We are also concerned that the village sewage system has limited capacity. There is a risk of flooding to the north of the village.

9. As a more general point, we believe that excessive loading of new houses on to rural villages would be environmentally irresponsible, increasing dependence on cars to drive to work, shop and deliver children to school.

CONCLUSION
The Parish Council believes that any future plans for housing must be in proportion to our current population and should not place an intolerable strain on village infrastructure.
Sensible, proportionate development to the south of Dickleburgh will retain the integrity and vitality of our village, while making a positive contribution to the county's housing needs.

Any building along Norwich Road will ultimately put pressure on the infrastructure of The Street.

The Street is a conservation area already under significant pressure from the existing volume of traffic. Any residents heading south on the A140 will obviously drive this route. It is already unsafe for pedestrians and speeding is already a serious issue.

While not the absolute worst of the proposed sites, the fact that it extends development out of the village sets a precedent for future village sprawl which would be detrimental to the character of Dickleburgh. Increased traffic and impact on Dickleburgh Moor also work against this proposal.
