1.0 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
1.1 These representations are made on behalf of JM Greetham No 2 Settlement in respect of lands known as Sites 1-5, GNLP0444, GNLP0445, GNLP0446
GNLP0447, GNLP0448, Spooner Row, Wymondham.
1.2 The five sites within Spooner Row (the 'Sites') collectively extend to an overall aggregate site area of 19.63ha and they have been previously submitted as potential residential development sites under the Call for Sites request in 2016.
1.3 The five Sites will:
* provide a coherent consolidation and sensitive extension to the otherwise fragmented settlement morphology of Spooner Row. This will include the provision of a structured network of public open spaces comprising parkland and children's play areas. It will also include the introduction of additional community infrastructure in the form of additional school land, allotments, additional public car parking, new footpath links and a retail unit to serve local village need;
* fully assimilate into and enhance the settlement form and function of Spooner Row, set within a robust landscape framework, sympathetic to the existing village and the local landscape character. The development of the Sites will not negatively impact upon the character and function of the village;
* comprise a highly attractive and well-designed modern living environment which respects the local vernacular, with convenient and safe access by foot to nearby community facilities such as the local primary school, village hall, proposed parkland, proposed children's play facilities and the proposed shop, as well as the church and local pub;
* improve safe and convenient access to the railway station, bus stops, the local primary school and local community facilities to the benefit of the wider village;
* enhance the ecological and biodiversity value of the village with structural landscaping and the formation of new habitats including ponds, woodland and wild meadow.2.0 INTRODUCTION
