Firstly to create a more viable community for Wherry Gardens by the creation of additional public spaces, community facilities and a public crossing as part of this scheme. The Council would insist on the relocation of the existing 30mph zone on the Salhouse Road to sit outside the boundary of this proposed development. This would enhance the public realm in the southern end of the village.
Secondly as part of the Neighbourhood Plan consultation there was strong public support for development to take place south of Wherry Gardens (pp23).

Respondent: Broads Authority

Representation:

Site is extension to existing new development and remote from Broads, with no visibility from Broads area. Unlikely to impact adversely on Broads in terms of heritage. Suggest that pedestrian cycle access from Salhouse Road and along Salhouse Road should be provided

Respondent: Salhouse Parish Council

Representation:

Considering the proposed sites for Wroxham, site number GNLP 2135 lies between the Salhouse/Wroxham road and the railway line, and is only 'a field away' from the Salhouse parish boundary. This would be a massive expansion (more than 100%) of the existing recent Wherry Gardens development, and it would have a huge visual impact on the character of the rolling landscape in this area as it would be visible from a considerable distance from both the road and rail. It would also leave Salhouse hemmed in by development on the Wroxham side, especially if site no. GNLP 2131 on the east side of the road also goes ahead. Development of site 2135 in particular would conflict with Policy 2 of the JCS as it would fail to maintain the strategic gap between the communities of Wroxham and Salhouse and damage the landscape settings of the two villages and their approaches. This development would also conflict with Broadland Policy EN 2Landscape which refers to the local Landscape Character Assessment and the protection of gaps between settlements, particularly in this case the valley forms of the river Bure and unique geological/geomorphological landforms in this area, which need appropriate protection.

Salhouse PC previously submitted comments on the sites put forward in the 2016 'Call for Sites' consultation. These comments submitted in January 2017 still stand and are attached for reference.

Two changes have occurred since early 2017. First, our previous comments included references to the Draft Salhouse Neighbourhood Plan, which was subsequently adopted in July 2017. Second, since March 2018, the land supply in Broadland District has been calculated at more than 5 years.

Salhouse PC believes that the 'Call for Sites' process is fundamentally flawed, in that it encourages opportunistic offers of sites instead of being plan-led. A further local concern is that the services infrastructure (particularly mains water and electricity and sewerage) in Salhouse is in a very poor state. No additional housing development should be considered without these services being completely upgraded to meet the extra demand.

Although there are no new sites listed for the Parish of Salhouse in the latest 2018 submissions, there are sites in adjacent parishes which approach very closely to Salhouse's boundaries, raising the prospect of continuous housing from Norwich to Salhouse is all the options were taken up.

See attachment for full details of submission.

Respondent: Hopkins Homes Limited

Representation:

The site presents a natural extension of the Wherry Gardens development. The main estate road through Wherry Gardens can be extended to provide access to this land and there is also potential to create a second access onto Salhouse Road. The landscape framework, including mature hedgerows on the southern boundary present a logical extension to the settlement boundary.

The site can deliver a quality development to assist in meeting the significant development needs in the District, including affordable housing needs. There is also potential to provide new areas of open space.

The Council's assessment concludes that the site is suitable for residential development. We agree with this conclusion as there are no constraints which would preclude development.

See full submission for more detail.
