Respondent: Harleston Town Council

Representation:

A large part of this site is a car park. Harleston has an acute limit on car parking capacity. South Norfolk Council's policy on strategic approach to car parking envisages longer stay: further out of town. It is our view that only the footprint of existing buildings and land between them and the adjacent Mendham Lane should be included for housing. The existing car parking space should be designated as such and purchased either by private treaty or compulsorily if necessary.
We would be interested in this land if ever it became available to use as a community facility.

It is suggested that c.0.26ha of the car parking area of this proposal be not accepted for housing , but that it be designated such that purchase of it by the local authority should be considered, preferably by private treaty or if necessary compulsory purchase. Only the footprint of the existing buildings and out to the boundary behind it and to the road in front of it should be included for housing development. This would then be a very acceptable place for new housing as it is in easy walking distance to town for shopping.

This is a counter-submission for alternative uses in respect of the following sites at Redenhall and Harleston:

GNLP0209 - Rushall Road - suggested for a hybrid use between small scale privately owned retirement residences or social housing, and

GNLP0263 - Apollo - suggested that housing development should be limited to the footprint of existing buildings and 0.26 ha of the car parking area should be considered for purchase by the local authority to provide additional long stay car parking.

See attached submission letter including further detail and illustrations. Additionally the submission includes the documentation in support of the 2011 proposal for a community environmental area at Rushall Road and the separate accompanying Harleston Community Orchard /Environmnet Area Assessment.

I am writing to ask you to protect the Apollo Centre in Harleston from being turned over to housing. It means such a lot to the community and with so much other land available in the area it would be such a shame to see this community resource lost for the sake of a few more. The area desperately needs a focal point where people can gather together and there is a real appetite in the town for it to be put back into use. Please can we ask you to consider rescinding the demolition order and retaining the D1 and D2 use on the building so it benefits all?
