Representation ID: 14927

Received: 20/03/2018

Respondent: Hempnall Parish Council

Representation:

The parish council voted unanimously to oppose development on this site because it contravenes the parish council's planning policies which aim to restrict development to within current development boundaries and which discourages large scale development.

Residents are concerned about the traffic problems this development would cause (restricted access) and the negative visual impact on the conservation area of Hempnall Street.

Received: 09/03/2018

Respondent: Hempnall Parish Council

Representation:

The parish council opposes development on sites GNLP1015, GNLP1016, GNLP1017 and GNLP1018 because they contravene the parish council's planning policies which aim to restrict development to within current development boundaries and which discourage large scale developments. Specific parish planning policies were referenced: in particular 2a (retention of Norwich Policy Area on its current boundaries and retention of Hempnall in the Rural Policy Area); 2b Retention of the existing JCS settlement hierarchy and retention of Hempnall as a Service Village); 2c Opposition to any development outside the current development boundary and restriction of development to small scale housing and business use.

At its meeting on 27 February 2018, Hempnall parish council considered the following sites proposed by landowners for housing development in the GNLP.

GNLP1015 - Land adjacent to the primary school, the Street, Hempnall
GNLP1016 - Land at Busseys Loke, Hempnall
GNLP1017 - Land at Broaden Lane, Hempnall
GNLP1018 - Land south of Millfields, Hempnall

The parish council voted unanimously to oppose development on all of these sites because they contravene the parish council's planning policies which aim to restrict development to within current development boundaries and which discourage large scale developments. In addition please see below our planning policies relevant to the above decisions:

2a) Norwich Policy Area
HPC supports retaining the Norwich Policy Area (NPA) with its current boundaries (as defined in the Joint Core Strategy to 2026) for inclusion in the emerging GNLP to 2036. The distinction between the Norwich Policy Area and the Rural Policy Area (RPA) should not be abolished in the new local plan and the area covered by the NPA should not be extended.

HPC wishes to remain within the Rural Policy Area and asks that current JCS policies that protect the rural parts of Broadland and South Norfolk from excessive development (i.e. all places outside the NPA including Hempnall) should be retained in the GNLP to 2036. New development proposed for inclusion in the 2036 plan should be concentrated in the already suburbanised parts of the NPA.

2b) Settlement Hierarchy
HPC considers that the existing Settlement Hierarchy (as defined in the JCS) should be retained in the GNLP to 2036 and re-states its resolve to remain a Service Village and to resist any attempt to be elevated up the hierarchy in the new plan, e.g. to the next level currently known as Key Service Centre.

2c) Development Area Boundary
HPC opposes any development of the village outside the currently defined development boundary. We support infill of small groups of dwellings and small scale businesses and services inside the development area demarcated by this boundary but oppose large scale housing estates.

Definitions
JCS -The Joint Core Strategy for Broadland, Norwich and South Norfolk to 2026
GNLP - The emerging Greater Norwich Local Plan (to 2036)
HPC - Hempnall Parish Council


The parish council also supports the CPRE pledge and considers that existing sites allocated in the Joint Core Strategy should be built out before any new sites are made available for development.

We would also like to draw your attention to our earlier response in respect of four other sites which were included in the original GNLP site proposals map - please see attached email.

With regard to GNLP0220 - Land owned by SNC as you will see from the attached email, we are keen this site is developed for social housing and we have entered into a discussion with Sam Watts of Saffron Housing Association as to how this might be possible.
