Orchard Lane, the location of this site, is already used as a "rat run' from Cawston Road to Norwich Road via The Moor. Fast moving traffic on this narrow residential route is a real hazard to residents on The Moor, especially during early morning and in the evening. The addition of x5 homes on this potential site would only increase the traffic problem we already have on The Moor. Should this development go ahead a 20mph limit/traffic calming measures on Orchard Lane and that part of The Moor so affected should be an essential condition to permission being given.

Unsuitable location with poopr infrastructurs better housing site already assessed earlier this year GNLP0180 supported by the Parish Council.

This site is extremely unsatisfactory with poor access along a single track road and does not relate at all to the existing built development. It is also isolated with poor pedestrian access to the Town and further away from the facilities and services in the Market Place. It seems to be a significantly large site for the suggested 5 units and may end up with more than that professed number. There are better and more suitable sites identified under the earlier Reg 18 Site Proposals Consultation of Jan- March 2018, such as GNLP 0180 adjacent to the Primary School which has been supported by the Town Council, and is a suitable alternative to the Broadland Local Plan (2016) REP1 Reepham Station Allocation, (for 20 market houses), which has never been 'deliverable' over the past 20 years or so and is now unlikely to proceed due to the proposals under current application 20180963, and also that the Reepham Motors 20141445 consent for 4 houses has expired and despite the Co-Op Convenience Store application 20180421 refusal is now the subject of an Appeal.

Reepham Town Council object to this site as it is on a narrow road with high banks with no opportunity to widen the road. There are highway concerns regarding access onto Cawston Road and there is no reasonable walking / cycle route into Reepham Town Centre.

We note the proximity of this site to the Marriot's Way CWS and are concerned at the potential ecological impacts of housing in this location. Should this site be progressed to the next consultation stage, then we would expect it to be accompanied by further details demonstrating how it would be deliverable without resulting in damage to adjoining areas of ecological value, for example through providing sufficient stand-off between development and priority habitats, and where proportional the provision of green infrastructure to ensure that the site has a net benefit for biodiversity.
