The site proposed is unsuitable for development, only a maximum of half of it to the Eastern side (along the Honingham road 1 house deep) could be developed only along the river, given its topography issues, local nature in the reed area. The impact on two listed buildings will be profound and will have Historic England objection as a result.

Full text:

The proposed development is located between two listed properties (Thatched Cottage - Grade 2 and Old Hall - Grade 1) and will impact both substantially on their impact and setting

The application states that there are no topography issues. The land has significant changes in levels due to its decline to the river, especially to the Western side

The area is dense with deer, bats and owls and this will have a significant impact on the local wildlife and in an area at risk of flooding near the reed area.

There are covenants on the land for the houses to the south for the waste services.

The only bit that would be suitable for housing is directly on the front on Honingham Road as keeping with the rest of Barnham Broon, the Eastern side of the development only

The site of the proposed site would have a significant detrimental impact on the local community for a remaining valley village.

The development will impact a number of other properties to the southern side.

Mixed block development not suitable as the infrastructure needed is not present and there is likely to be a high negative impact on the village and the countryside.

Full text:

This block type of development is not suitable for Barnham Broom because of
1. High impact of light pollution, noise and traffic pollution on adjacent housing.
2 . High impact of above factors on an area of open natural beauty adjacent to the river Yare valley.
3. Already a lack of infrastructure such as sewerage disposal, inadequate footpaths and traffic free areas. There is no gas supply as stated in the plans.
4. Flooding on the Honingham during heavy rain as water drains from fields east of Honingham road onto the planned area and is already a problem.
5. Increased traffic on the Honingham road into the village onto an already dangerous crossroad junction

Totally inappropriate due to environmental effect on Yare Valley and SSI and the effect on wildlife habitat e.g. brown hares, deer, lapwings, owls, which frequent the site.
Development of this scale on already stretched sewerage disposal system.
Impact on poor road facilities and footpaths.
Alternative land available for industrial units owned by Parish Council at Rush Green
Loss of prime agricultural land
Contrary to applicant`s comments, there is no gas in this village.
Flooding from Honingham Road.
Marshy wet ground at Western boundary.
My understanding is that this land is protected from building by a covenant.

This plan would have a major negative impact on neighbouring properties and be of significant detriment to the rural character of the village.

Full text:

The proposed development would have significant negative impact on a number of properties along Mill Road and Honingham Road. Additionally it would completely alter the rural nature of the village, as well as harming the visual amenity and natural beauty of the valley.
In particular:
- Light pollution: high impact as currently there is no street lighting
- Noise pollution: disturbance from proposed industrial units and traffic generation
- Loss of privacy: existing properties on the south side of proposed site would be overlooked
- Traffic/ roads: the crossroads leading to this site are a safety concern; there will already be an increase in traffic meeting the junction from the south from the houses being built along Bell Road
- Sewage: the existing pumping station struggles with current demand, causing issues for properties towards the western end of Mill Road
- Wildlife: the field and surrounding area supports a variety including owls, bats, deer and is a nesting site for lapwings.

The proposed site is completely inappropriate for development. Not only is it on a slope leading to a floodplain which would require significant groundworks it is in an area adjacent to historical properties, including the church, and would therefore have a disproportionate impact on local heritage. In addition, there would need to be significant upgrades made to local infrastructure in order to support development further increasing the negative impact.

SUMMARY

Detrimental to our autistic grandson and the general environment.

Increases the risk of an accident due to a higher percentage of cars on the road

Contributes to the loss of the term "rural village" and our wildlife.

Unfair to those who paid extra for a property in a quiet country location.

Full text:

After hearing of the potential plans for a new housing estate in Barnham Broom, i would like to state my case and strongly object for the following reasons:

We specifically purchased our property and incurred extra costs which we have worked extremely hard for; for the pleasure and privilege of owning a house within a quiet rural location only two years ago.
If we were not pursuing a property for a peaceful and quiet lifestyle we would have spent less money and purchased a house in a town such as Wymondham or Hethersett.

We did this because not only is this environment much more pleasurable as we head towards retirement but also because our grandson is autistic and he absolutely thrives in our garden with the nature and quietness so any additional noise and disruption would be most distressing and unsettling to him. He has many struggles in life and sitting in our garden over looking the fields and trees in the safety of his grandparents home is extremely beneficial and also essential to his mental wellbeing.

Due to house builds popping up all over the place we are slowly losing the term "rural village" which is a great shame as as I've previously stated; there are many health benefits for stepping away from the hustle and bustle of overcrowded life. Plus we have already had twenty four houses built on the outskirts so this is more than enough.

The crossroads near our shop is already a hazard without even more vehicles using it. This is vitally important in rush hour as this ties in with school drop offs and pick ups. Increased cars heightens the risk of a child being knocked over and between 8:45am - 9:00am and 3:00pm - 3:30pm you can barely drive past the school as it is due to the size of the road and the parked cars outside of the already thriving school.

An increase in houses, means an increase in footfall and traffic which is extremely detrimental to the environment.
Global warming is a massive concern in today's world and all aspects of nature is vital to its survival. The pollution and lack of wildlife is drastically increasing in our overpopulated cities so why would you want to contribute to the destruction of this planet by taking away the homes and freedom of our wildlife and greenery by replacing it with more concrete and bricks.

You would be detrimentally effecting many people and wildlife with your proposed plans and I strongly suggest you rethink your location for a new estate for the benefit of our village, it's residents and our planet.

Main detail is in full representation However the justifications are wide of the mark and one-sided.
Plan not in keeping with the village, access is not as stated in fact will be a danger, light noise pollution a major concern.
Wildlife will be affected village infrastructure is not present to support this application.

Planning GNLP2089
* Concern with areas of outstanding beauty, borders a Special Area of Conservation and a Site of Special Scientific Interest. Any development should focus on being developed along a high street and not into an area of natural beauty
* The land is not flat as per the application with significant topography issues, with risk of flooding and soft soil due to the area
* Impact on listed buildings nearby - placed in between three listed properties Grade I Old Hall and Church of St Peter and St Paul, Grade II - Thatched Cottage
* The size of the development is too large for a village the size of Barnham Broom - the road network is not suitable for such a large development to be added. Road safety at the proposed site would be a disaster, the crossroads are already very unsafe and there is no scope to improve this
* The area is located next to reed area with a large amount of wildlife - owls, bats, birds of prey and others
* The other options proposed within Barnham Broom are all less damaging to the environment, listed properties, natural beauty and located along road networks only, unlike this one
* The development would go behind other houses which already have a covenant on some of the land for access
* Barnham Broom is not suitable for additional industrial units due to lack of suitable road network
* There is little need in the area for another care home with 8 already within a 5 mile radius of the area are better situated near main roads
* Further light pollution
* Noise pollution
* Current village infrastructure is maxed out i.e. Sewerage, Electricity and Internet
* Capacity in the school will also be compromised
* Personal invasion of privacy along my border, property was designed with open glass

The position of this field for this sized development is totally inappropriate, the lanes around Barnham Broom are too narrow and winding, Considerable upgrades would be necessary to cope with the additional traffic.
There is also the growing risk of flooding from the River Yare along the foot of the field.
This is beautiful in it's own right- surely a scene that should be protected, particularly as wildlife is frequently seen here, this is how it should remain providing valuable agricultural land and providing calming views for villagers and visitors.

I object to the proposed development for the following reasons:
- The services are already stretched for the existing number of households.
- The road network is unfit to support this scale of development.
- The suitability of the proposed site seems inappropriate due to likely groundworks required and close proximity to the river.
- The proposed area is rich in wildlife including many species which are known to be in decline. Building in this area can only have a negative impact.
- Development of this land would change the setting of 3 listed buildings in close proximity.

The proposed development is completely inappropriate for the following reasons:
- The services are already stretched for the existing number of households.
- The road network immediately next to this site, as well as in the surrounding area, is unable to support this scale of development. The crossroads at the village end of Honingham Road is already a hotspot for accidents as well as the roads surrounding the village being dangerous and often impassable in bad weather.
- The site is far from flat and would require extensive groundworks, in addition the land on the western boundary of the site is in close proximity to the River Yare.
- The area is incredibly rich in wildlife including bats and hares as well as a wide variety of birds including swifts, swallows, buzzards, tawny owls and barn owls. The populations of many of these species are already known to be in decline and building in this area can only have a negative impact on their habitats.
- Despite the proposal claiming that the site is sufficiently large enough to ensure that the development can be accommodated without damage to the settings of any listed buildings, the site is in extremely close proximity to 3 such properties. Building in this area would totally change the character of the space where these buildings have stood for hundreds of years.

This is a particularly sensitive river valley site.It is sloping to the river contrary to the applicant's details. Any development will represent a hard edge to the village from the north and will affect the sweeping views of the valley .It is an SSSI which should determine that no development occurs here.Please see the Yare-Tiffey Rural River Valley 2001 report 5.10 Sensitivities and Vulnerabilities 5.11. Landscape strategy 5.12 development considerations. There are 3 listed properties nearby. Any development here will destroy the rural quality of the village and completely urbanise it, whilst destroying a delightful sweeping landscape view.

Even today without these extras the lanes around Barnham Broom are narrow and winding, with the local cross roads having frequent shunts. Considerable upgrades would be necessary to cope with the additional traffic. The additional access points on Honingham Road would add seriously to the dangers here.
There is also the growing risk of flooding from the River Yare which flows along the foot of the field's slope, but which enhances the field's attraction.

Re: Proposed Development of Land to the West of Honingham Road, Barnham Broom, Norfolk.
It has come to my notice that a proposal has been lodged to develop land to the west of Honingham Road, Barnham Broom. I must lodge an objection to such an inappropriate request.
The position of this field for the proposed development, particularly with so many buildings - 35 dwellings, a care home (many already in the area), and several small business units.
Even today without these extras the lanes around Barnham Broom are narrow and winding, with the local cross roads having frequent shunts. Considerable upgrades would be necessary to cope with the additional traffic. The additional access points on Honingham Road would add seriously to the dangers here.
There is also the growing risk of flooding from the River Yare which flows along the foot of the field's slope, but which enhances the field's attraction.
Apart from safety concerns there is also the fact that this is a beautiful field in it's own right. It has St Peter and St Paul's Church to the East, where it and it's predecessor the Anglo Saxon St Michaels has stood for almost 1,000 uninterrupted years. The Old manor to the North, a listed thatched cottage to the South and the river meadows to the West - surely a scene that should be protected, particularly as wildlife is frequently seen here, including tawny owls, barn owls, bats, buzzards etc by a Special Area of Conservation and Site of Special Scientific Interest.
Changing throughout the day the views across this sloping field are entrancing, whichever way one looks, this is how it should remain providing valuable agricultural land and providing calming views for villagers and other visitors.
For all the above reasons I wish to lodge both my wife and my own objections to any proposed development.

Barnham Broom sits atop the east side of the beautiful u-shaped Yare valley. The views westwards across the valley to the hills the other side are amongst the finest in the County and should be protected. Already they have been blocked southward by large houses in an ongoing development. This new, large site on the north side would destroy them even further.The village has a sewage system unable to cope now, two ratruns north/south and east/west creating a dangerous crossroads where these meet and an oversubscribed school. Any further development would turn this rural village into an urban connurbation.

As a Carer it has become increasingly dangerous to walk with another person the triangle of Mill Road, Church Road and Barford Road in Marlingford. There are no footpaths, (just banks and hedges full of holly, brambles and nettles). These country roads were not designed to take artic lorries and 3.5t vans. I suffer from bronchiectesis and the exhaust fumes polluting the air exacerbate it. The volume of traffic cutting through our village, the noise and greenhouse gases will again increase, whereas I thought we were meant to be reducing the latter.
