We note the proximity of this site to Hethel Wood 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.

These 2 sites are for commercial development and it was agreed that would be appropriate for the location. It was considered that the area would benefit from development and was a logical extension and use of the site.

This site was discussed earlier in the meeting as the developer had already had plans drawn for it. The scale, plans and design were considered to be good; concerns about specific issues such as drainage would need to be addressed at the planning stage.
The proposed access into Cuckoofield Lane was considered to be a sensible option but serious concerns were raised about pedestrian access to Mulbarton where the local services were such as schools, shops and doctors surgery. The pavement is far too narrow and with family sized homes being built there would be need to be improvements to enable access to Mulbarton without a reliance on cars.
If developed in line with outline proposals, subject to usual planning controls the parish council would have no objections to this being included in the local plan.
