The council believes road side frontage housing here would 'join' up the village. However, it is very much up to the landowner of this site what he chooses to do with his land and therefore the council would only support if appropriate.

Following the submission from the Barnham Broom Parish Council, we are pleased to include the following comments acting as agents for Mr Allen. We have sought to bullet-point these for ease of reading. We wish to promote the change of use of this site for residential development for a small scheme of market housing, and have identified the following supporting comments below:

* The site totalling around 1.2 acres (0.445 hectare) and comprises part of an arable field. The site is located in the centre of Barnham Broom and benefits from a wide vision splay onto Norwich Road.

* We consider the site could be suitable for a small residential scheme of between 5 and 8 dwelling.

* The site is not at risk of flooding, and we have carried out a flood risk search via the Environment Agency. We can provide a copy of this plan if required.

* The site identified is under a single legal ownership by Mr Allen. There are no restrictive covenants, overage agreements, or any access rights granted over the site. The site is occupied by Mr Allen and currently farmed in-hand and is not subject to any tenancy.

* The site is located opposite to two small sections of woodland which are not owned by Mr Allen. There is a shallow ditch which runs along the frontage of the site, where there are also a number of young trees. We are not aware there are any ecological features of note or importance within the area.

* We have carried out a search of listed buildings in Barnham Broom and there are 10 building which are detailed on the British Listed Buildings website. The closest listed building is located to the north east as identified as Rectory Farmhouse, which is Grade II listed and is not visible from the site.

* Barnham Broom benefits from a village shop, school, and public house, and a range of facilities and leisure services at the Barnham Broom Golf Club and hotel, which includes a restaurant, Golf course, swimming pool and gym.

* Barnham Broom benefits from a range of service connections, including mains water, sewerage, electricity; and gas connections. There is also a public footpath opposite the frontage of the site which continues to the village shop.

* There is a bus stop in the village, and there are three bus services; the number 3 from Norwich to Shipdham; the number 15 from Norwich City Centre to Shipdham; and the number 308 from Bawburgh to Wymondham.

* The site is available immediately and if development is deemed suitable, the site could be brought to the market following the granting of Planning Permission.

This site would be appropriate for such a small village. In particular, it would help to bring the two parts of the village together instead of creating new discrete 'enclaves', further isolating communities from each other. Also a small site would impact minimally on the rural nature of the larger environment.
