This is the last significant piece of open land central to the village of Brundall. We currently have very little recreational land for the community to enjoy. With local services, Doctors, School and roads under such pressure what we do NOT need is another 170 houses built on this land. Development as a recreational facility would enhance and benefit the lives of the 4500 population of Brundall. It would also comply with the Brundall neighbourhood plan which was adopted by Broadland District Council, and protect the views across to Blofield, so that we can continue to enjoy this fantastic site.

Most Brundall residents want this land preserved as public open space, as designated in the Neighbourhood Plan. The village lacks accessible space for informal recreation at present, and this site is ideally situated in the centre of the linear village.We want to preserve this because permission for several large housing developments around the village recently has altered the character of the village and made us feel hemmed in. Above all we want this river valley site preserved because of its unique importance scenically, historically, visually and for wildlife in our area. We hope eventually to acquire it for village use.

Like most residents of Brundall I very much hope that the field East of Brundall Memorial Hall can be designated permanently as public open space. This would preserve an area which has been important to the life of the village since its use as a Golf Course in the early 2oth century. Brundall is a linear village with no natural centre, but this land can easily be accessed on foot from all sides of the village and adjoins the village Memorial Hall and children's playground, so it is an important walking and meeting place for village people. There is no comparable area in the village except the country park,which lies well outside the village boundary and can only be reached by car or by a long walk or run. The proposed sports pitch at the north end of the village, if it materialises, will also be too far out for most people to walk to easily, and will only serve those who want to play formal sport, not those who want informal access to green space.
Planning permission has been given in the last few years for a number of housing developments round the periphery of Brundall, and for one inside the village which replaced a much loved cricket ground. Many residents feel that development is closing in on the village and destroying its previous character. They are hurt, too, that the Neighbourhood Plan to which much careful thought was given, appears to have been disregarded when planning decisions are made.
Leaving aside the very considerable problems of access, traffic and overburdening of services which would occur if housing were built on this site, our chief reason for wanting to preserve it is its unique character. The field forms one side of a river valley. Its slope down is matched by the rise of the golf course on the other side. The area adjoining the stream and the stream itself have good potential for improvement as a wildlife area, and it adjoins at its western end (apart from the width of the road between) Cremers Meadow, a County Wildlife site, so providing an important wildlife corridor to the approach to the marshes and River Yare beyond. The valley is overlooked by the historically and visually important medieval tower of Blofield church, forming an outstanding view which is much prized both by Brundall and Blofield residents and people in the surrounding villages. It would be a tragedy if this were destroyed.
If the land can be permanently designated as recreational we hope that its value would drop, and many people in Brundall are determined to work to raise funds to acquire and maintain it for the use of the village.We realise this will be a mammoth task but we are passionate about it and prepared to do what it takes.

The village has a very small amount of recreational land in relation to the number of residents and this proposal would go some way to redressing that balance. Also, the recently-produced local-plan identified this area as an iconic vista which should be preserved - allocation of this area for recreation would support that objective

What Brundall needs is recreational and leisure facilities which would be the perfect use for that land and I fully support the Parish Council's application for this. It is the last piece of open land in the village and it is also in the heart of the village making it even more ideal for bringing the community together.

It is also in the Brundall Neighbourhood Plan which must be considered along with the Parish Council's application to obtain the field. We don't need more houses we need to invest in the future of the village.

We have seen what happened on the Berryfields site which was also designated for recreational use and was subsequently passed for housing, the land owner is not likely to sell this land to the PC, the PC has not got enough money to buy it, and a compulsory purchase order is unlikely to get the go ahead from the government. The only way Brundall is going to get the open space that it should have if it is part of a approved housing development as already been submitted by Quantum group.

This site must be kept as recreational and leisure land for Brundall. It is the last remaining piece of open space in the centre of our village and is essential for access to all residents.

With the number of residents here at present our services (doctors, school, roads) are already overstretched, as is access to and from Brundall at Cucumber Lane roundabout via the A47.

The use of this land for leisure also complies with the Brundall Neighbourhood Plan adopted by Broadland District Council.

With approximately 200 properties built here recently we cannot cope with any more large building projects.

The Parish Council wishes to support this allocation. There is a severe lack of recreation land in Brundall for the size of the village. 4.9ha of the field has already been designated as recreation land and the view from the Memorial Hall is identified in the Neighbourhood Plan. By having the whole field for recreation Brundall can have both formal recreation space and retention of the important view across the valley to enhance the environment and provide much needed green space for the growing village.

I would like to support the application GNLP2069, which refers to the whole of the field east of the Brundall Memorial Hall for use as community land for leisure and recreation facilities instead of being developed for housing, which would not enhance our village at all and would achieve the absolute opposite by overloading the village amenities, which are already stretched and access for this site generally lends itself for foot traffic mainly. Would you please advise me as to how I make a formal comment to this application as I do not seem to be able to trace the correct procedure through your website. Many thanks for your help and I look forward to hearing from you.

I understand that it is proposed that up to 150 houses will be built on this site despite previous assurances that this land will be preserved for recreational purposes which Brundall is extremely short of. The infrastructure of the village does not lend itself to further development either in resources or in the ability of the roads to take on, what could be, up to 100 or more cars. The difficulty in accessing the A47 at certain times of day has been well reported and will not be helped by further private cars. Brundall has expanded greatly in the last 20 years but unfortunately the facilities have not kept pace. I would urge the planners to reconsider any further plans for housing and give Brundall back its heart.

I support the plan if it is purely recreational. It must not include a housing development.

The plan must not cause extensive damage or disruption to the area and environment, nor increase traffic flow.

The proposal must have the backing of the residents and council and must not include building companies such as Quantum.

It is a more realistic proposal than the one put forward by Quantum to build houses and will impact the school, doctors, environment and traffic less.

Full text:

I agree with the vast majority of this proposal as it looks to be in the best interests of the residents of Brundall. The village needs more open recreational space, while the housing quotas for the area have already been met.

I object wholly to the building of any housing estates on this land. The village cannot cope with yet another development. The recent new builds in the Brundall area have put a great strain on traffic, the school and the local doctors. The village cannot sustain another development.

If the land is to be used - as suggested by Ms Sharon Smyth - then I hope it is purely recreational and a space where residents can enjoy some open space, rather than the miniscule 'Country Park' proposed by the Quantum building group as an appeasement for their unpopular housing proposal.

Any recreational development as well needs to be designed with minimum disruption to the current site and residents. The scenic views (popular with locals) must be maintained and the landscape (trees, dykes, hedgerows) must not be destroyed. Any plan like this must be carefully thought through and with the backing of residents and the Parish Council.

Kind regards

Jason Masala

I wish to support Brundall Parish Council application to have the land next to the memorial Hall allocated for recreation - we badly need more land for this in brundall over the years there have been several attempts to get planning permission to build houses on the land to the east of the memorial hall - but this is the only space left in brundall that could be used for information recreation suitable for all ages groups - being next to the hall will also be convenient for toilets and other hall facilities.
