I strongly oppose this site as I think that construction of housing on this site would deflect and spoil the natural beauty of the moorland view from drivers and walkers on the route into and out of our village.

Further infill damaging views of Dickleburgh Moor from the public road and creating a longer corridor of housing. Traffic southbound would be tempted to exit the village by The Street which is too narrow to sustain more traffic. Northbound traffic faces a difficult and dangerous right turn onto the A140. Flood risk is also a minor concern.

Will cut off views across the Dickleburgh Moor which are of historic, archaeological value and diminish the newly formed wild life sanctuary. The views are of immense visual amenity and therepeutic value to all especially the elderly in the Culrose Residential Home.
Will increase potential for flooding in an area with history of flooding.
Will place undue strain on village infrastructure, schools, drainage and sewerage system, increase traffic through village with increased noise and air pollution.
Destroy village character and lead to ribbon development.

Demand should be met by development of New Towns inclusive of all necessary infrastructure.

This site is situated close to Dickleburgh Moor which is being developed as a community nature reserve. It would be entirely inappropriate for this site to be used for housing as it would be detrimental to the wildlife using Dickleburgh Moor and have a negative impact on the enjoyment of visitors to the area.

There is no foul sewer available in Norwich Road. There is a rising main to the east of the site but connection is unlikely to be acceptable.

This site is on the edge of an area of outstanding beauty and well outside the village building envelope so there is no way that this site should be considered as a future development site.

I am writing on behalf of Dickleburgh and Rushall Parish Council as chair of the council.
Our opposition to this site is based on the effect it will have on traffic on Norwich Road and through the village - already a major problem for residents without the weight of extra traffic. There is no doubt that traffic from any site north of the village will go south down The Street to the roundabout rather than heading north to try to get on to the A140 at a highly dangerous junction at the top of the hill. The traffic will therefore have a serious impact in terms of quality of life and safety on the village.
It is for that reason the parish council favours sites to the south of the village for any possible development

I am writing on behalf of Dickleburgh and Rushall Parish Council as chair of the council.

As we have discussed with the developer in connection with an earlier planning application adjoining this site, we oppose further housing development in this part of village if traffic from the new houses issues on to Norwich Road, as is currently planned.
The effect on traffic on Norwich Road and through the village - already a major problem for residents without the weight of extra traffic - will be harmful to the quality of life of residents and to the safety to pedestrians and drivers. There is no doubt that traffic from this site will go south down The Street to the roundabout rather than heading north to try to get on to the A140 at a highly dangerous junction at the top of the hill. The traffic will therefore have a serious impact on the village.
It is for that reason the parish council favours sites to the south of the village for any possible development

1. Please take into consideration that, as a village, Dickleburgh has over the past three years played its part to help resolve the shortage of local housing. In 2017, a development of 15 affordable homes was completed on Norwich Road. A 22-house development is currently under construction on Harvey Lane, and a further 24-house site for Norwich Road has been granted outline planning permission. It is hoped and expected that the GNLP board will take into consideration these significant recent developments when considering further expansion of the village. As the parish council has said, we expect any development to be proportionate and sustainable, bearing in mind the size, infrastructure and character of our village.

2. Please note that residents have been extensively consulted about the GNLP with two public meetings and a survey. The parish council is reflecting a strongly-held majority view.

3. Please note that the following changes have recently occurred in the village which affect our status as a service village. There is now no garage and there is no doctors' surgery.

2. We re-iterate the importance of traffic infrastructure in the village. Week by week, the situation regarding residents' quality of life and safety is worsening as a result of traffic through the centre of the village. Residents and the Parish Council hope and expect the GNLP to recognise this problem and for their decisions to reflect its importance.

Our general policy statement:
THE GNLP AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENT IN OUR VILLAGES: A POLICY STATEMENT BY DICKLEBURGH AND RUSHALL PARISH COUNCIL
As a community, Dickleburgh and Rushall are committed to playing their part in the GNLP's plan for future housing. We believe some new housing, particularly that which is affordable, is important for the future health and prosperity of our village.
At the same time, it is essential that this growth is sustainable, proportionate and sited so that it does not place an intolerable strain on the infrastructure and character of our villages.
After careful discussion of the development options, two public meetings with residents and an opinion poll within Dickleburgh, the Parish Council has reached the following conclusions concerning future housing development.
1. The response to the call for sites has so far produced 13 proposals around the village of Dickleburgh.

2. Currently, the most urgent problem facing Dickleburgh concerns roads. Each of the three road in the centre of the village is already experiencing major traffic problems. It is essential, for reasons of safety to residents and drivers, that these are not exacerbated.
The Street in an extremely narrow road which, in spite of 20mph speed limit (widely ignored by drivers) struggles to cope with traffic, in particular heavy goods vehicles going to and from the Smurfit Kappa depot in Rushall.
Rectory Road, with houses on each side, parked cars and no pedestrian crossing has become very dangerous to pedestrians. Again, lorries from Smurfit Kappa are the main problem.
Harvey Lane, a narrow road on which the school, playground and village centre are situated, has had widely-publicised problems of congestion which will be worsened by a development of 22 houses, currently under construction.

3. The Parish Council is determined that what is already a bad and dangerous traffic situation in Dickleburgh must not be made worse by any new housing development. For this reason, we believe that any future development should take place to the south of the village off the Ipswich Road (GNLP0350 and GNLP0498; if there are problems with those sites, we favour GNLP0498).

4. New houses on that side of the village would provide residents with safe and easy pedestrian access to the village services, without adding to Dickleburgh's traffic problems.

5. We strongly oppose any potential sites that will add to the traffic on the three roads mentioned above. Our opposition includes sites on the Norwich Road to the north of the village. Local experience has shown that drivers will avoid the difficult junction on to the A140 to the north of the village, preferring to use the roundabout to the south. In other words, any Norwich Road development would add to pressure on The Street.

6.. A survey for our proposed Neighbourhood Plan revealed, in addition, that residents on the Rectory Road greatly value the prospect from the village of Dickleburgh Moor, which is being developed as a wildlife site. In other words, development off the Ipswich Road has the added advantage of causing least harm to amenities enjoyed by current residents.

7. Dickleburgh Primary School, of which we are very proud, is now reaching capacity and will have no further potential for expansion.

8. We are also concerned that the village sewage system has limited capacity. There is a risk of flooding to the north of the village.

9. As a more general point, we believe that excessive loading of new houses on to rural villages would be environmentally irresponsible, increasing dependence on cars to drive to work, shop and deliver children to school.

Conclusion
The Parish Council believes that any future plans for housing musty be in proportion to our current population and should not place an intolerable strain on village infrastructure.
Sensible, proportionate development to the south of Dickleburgh will retain the integrity and vitality of our village, while making a positive contribution to the county's housing needs.

Representation:

With respect to both site references GNLP2083 and GNLP2084, the applicant welcomes the Council's comments that the sites represent suitable sites for future residential development within the village of Dickleburgh. We would stress that there are no fundamental constraints or impacts that cannot be mitigated through the subsequent application and development process. The sites represent an opportunity to provide much needed housing at a proportionate scale and within a location that would support the nearby facilities within the village whilst also minimising wider landscape and townscape impacts. We would therefore welcome your support for the inclusion of the above site in the emerging joint local plan.
