The roads including junctions can simple not handle any further traffic. The junctions on and to and from the A140 are already very busy and very dangerous. The village doesn't have a shop, the school I believe is already over subscribed and the Dr's surgery is very difficult to obtain an appointment.

We live at xxxxxxxxxx newton st faith and feel that the manor road will struggle,to cope with all the traffic from all these new developments. It is a village and the proposed building of houses on the field opposite our bungalow would turn it into a small town . How will the school cope and doctor surgery , . Also the junction onto the cromer road is chaotic in the mornings now so how would it be with new housing developments.

We love the view at the front of our house, of food-productive farmland. It is so peaceful and beautiful for everybody to enjoy. When fallow, horses are permitted to gallop there.
We dread losing this view. Please do not take away this piece of farmland but allow it to continue.

Open Full text to see 6 points made including:
1. why has settlement boundary moved from centre of Manor Road to main A140
2. Site would add further huge burden to the village which is totally under provided with services
3. Scale of development should decrease at each level of settlement hierarchy. Should be other village not service village
4. Broadland Local Plan describes Newton St Faith as a linear village on two roads, hardly the description of a vibrant service village
5. Land behind Crown Garage regularly offered for development and has always been refused.
6. GNLP 2141 would leave a large proportion of Newton totally encapsulated by modern suburban sprawl and destroy its character

1.
Whilst this site is identified in St. Faiths, at what point did the village settlement boundary move from the centre of Manor Road to the main A140 without any consultation with the residents?

Surely this is a a drawing transfer mistake and this parcel should be identified as Horsford.

2.
The above referenced site would add a further huge burden to the village which is totally under provided with our last shop now closed and has become a private dwelling leaving only a garage providing nothing other than mechanical services, not only that Newton St. Faith is listed in the J.C.S. Policy 15 as a service village and states "in each service village land will be allocated for SMALL SCALE housing development subject to form and character considerations. Small scale employment or service development appropriate to the scale and needs of the village and its immediate surroundings will be encouraged. Existing local shop and services will be protected" - but by whom?

Point 1. 150/200% increase on existing traditionally built properties in Newton St. Faith could not be described as small scale.

3.
The J.C.S. Chapter 6.3 quite clearly states "The scale of development generally DECREASES at each level of this hierarchy " remembering Newton St. Faith has been classed in the J.C.S. as a 'service village' which in itself should be considered as a miss representation with no real services, it should be classed as 'other villages'.

4.
The Broadland District Local Plan Chapter 47 Clause 42.2 quite clearly describes Newton St. Faith as "a linear village on two roads - Newton Street and Manor Road " hardly the description of a vibrant services village.

Point 1 - More akin to "development appropriate to the scale and needs of the village and its immediate surroundings " J.C.S. Policy 15.

5.
Not withstanding the above, a large proportion of land behind Crown Garage had been regularly offered for development for at least 40 years, a large proportion of that time lobbied by Whimpy, the National house builder, it had always been refused, no doubt listing your reasons as non-sustainable, lack of services or generally unsuitable, which begs the question what has changed, certainly not the infrastructure or access, so surely the same concerns, rejections should apply to this new area.

6.
This parcel of land ref: GNLP2141 would, with already approved land commitments, leave a large proportion of Newton totally encapsulated by modern suburban sprawl and destroying the character currently viewed by others and not forgetting the strain on the local school and doctors.

Words fail me that more land maybe allocated for building in our lovely village especially in view of the fact that two sites are very near to being agreed, one of 69 homes and the other for 65 homes, this in itself almost doubling the size of the present village. Of course this will also put an enormous pressure on doctors and school (I know you have heard it all before but is the truth nevertheless).

In the Joint Core Strategy Policy 15 Newton St. Faith was listed as a service village which states land would be allocated for SMALL SCALE development.

The current proposed developments already greatly exceed this proposal let alone the addition of the new proposed land.

The main A140 flanking this land is extremely busy escalated by all the development at Aylsham and accessing the junction from this village to this main road is already problematical and an accident waiting to happen.

The proposed development is totally out of character and will have a severe adverse impact on the environment and the quality of communal village life in Newton St. Faith. There is so much more to measuring a country's success than GDP. Planning policy should be based on quality of communal life, environmental quality and the provision of adequate services and infrastructure. Please do not proceed with this development.

Greater Norwich Local Plan Site Reference 2141

I am writing to object to this planned development because the proposed development is totally out of character and will have a severe adverse impact on the environment and the quality of communal village life in Newton St. Faith.

There is already a shortage of infrastructure in the village in terms of schools, services, public transport and medical facilities; for instance it is already difficult to see the local doctors. I have no faith in extra services being introduced and there appears to be no firm commitment to provide adequate provision.

In particular, the roads are inadequate and the junction at Manor Road and the A140 is already dangerous and difficult to navigate because the traffic in this area has increased dramatically recently. This situation can only be exacerbated by this development as there is no employment in the area and, as a result, there would be a substantial increase in traffic heading into Norwich on an already busy road.

The environmental impact of the proposed development would be entirely negative. This is an area of forestry and woodland with an abundance of wildlife and deer and it is short sighted to build on land historically devoted to agriculture and used to produce food. I cannot see any detailed designs so cannot tell how they would integrate but it is clear from the plans that the concentration of building does not indicate an emphasis on good design.

From a personal viewpoint, my house would overlook this development. From my living room window I enjoy a view over the A140 to the forests opposite, there are deer running around and it's a wonderful relaxing view and environment. I don't want to find village life destroyed.

From a policy viewpoint, I have read the information on your website about migration into the area, the need to build more houses for locals and the need to increase GDP to fund services. However, it appears to me that this argument is flawed as based on a fundamental contradiction - if you increase the number of people in an area, then the GDP will go up, but you need to spend more on local infrastructure, so you bring more people in, but then you have to improve the infrastructure again.

There is so much more to measuring a country's success than GDP. Planning policy should be based on quality of communal life, environmental quality and the provision of adequate services and infrastructure. Please do not proceed with this development.

Area unsuitable for more traffic.Re facilities,NSF has 2 repair garages & a mobile P.O.-that is all.It shares a community centre with Horsham, a primary school & Drs surgery with surrounding villages.Any new development(of more than 1-2 properties) will put more pressure on these facilities and condemn the village to an ugly area of housing.NSF is already a'strong,vibrant & healthy'community & any new dev will have a detrimental effect on the area.Buses are infrequent & vast majority of residents use own cars for travelling.This village is surrounded by large scale development in areas such as Horsford,Hellesdon,Spixworth,Aylsham etc.

This area of land is sandwiched between 2 roads - the A140 with its incessant traffic and Manor Road with ever increasing traffic.
Access to Manor Road is either from the A140 at Newton St Faith or from Norwich Road in Horsham St Faith. Neither of these access points is suitable for more traffic. Manor Road is already treated as a rat run with most drivers disregarding the 30 mph limit and any new developments will only exacerbate the issues. In terms of facilities, Newton St Faith has 2 car repair centres: The Mini Farm on Newton Street and Crown Garage on Manor Road, a mobile Post Office and that is all. It shares a community centre with Horsham St Faith and also shares a primary school and Doctors surgery with surrounding villages. Any new development (of more than 1-2 properties) will put more pressure on these facilities and condemn the village to another ugly area of housing which is becoming prevalent in Broadland. Newton St Faith is already a 'strong, vibrant and healthy' community and any new development will not improve the lives of the residents but on the contrary will have a detrimental effect on those living in the village who enjoy the rural nature of the area. Even though the village is serviced by Sanders buses, these are infrequent and the vast majority of residents use their own car(s) for travelling. This village is surrounded by large scale development in areas such as Horsford, Hellesdon, Spixworth, Aylsham etc and I feel it completely unwarranted to further develop this village

This development is unsuitable for highways reasons. It adds further pressure onto a busy junction onto the A140. Furthermore it is located near to a bend Newton Street/Manor Road. There is existing growth identified for Manor Road that will already add significant pressure to the local road network.

The site is suitable, available, achievable and viable, and is deliverable within the first five years of the Greater Norwich Local Plan period. There are no constraints that would prevent the site from coming forward for residential development.
On this basis, the site should be taken forward as an allocation for residential development of 20 - 40 dwellings in the emerging Local Plan. Development on the site would meet all three objectives of sustainable development, and would help to distribute housing allocations and delivery across the district.

This site is grossly out of proportion
It has no infrastructure at all
It overdevelops will village eastward
It not served by local roads what are all very narrow.

Any development should include provision for at least some amenities ie a local shop, better transport links, improvement to village hall.
