Comments on general suitability in relation to adjacent site GNLP1058 already submitted, and corrections re: 7g (heritage issues) and 7h (neighbouring uses).

Full text:

Site GNLP1058 already submitted by and owned by us is directly adjacent to this site, and to that extent we would ONLY support development if BOTH sites were considered suitable for development as they share exactly the same characteristics.

Regarding item 7g on the application form, the applicant states that there are no heritage assets nearby. This is not strictly true, as the site is very close to both the Grade II listed White House Farm of which the site was once part, and is directly adjacent to a residential development of barns which originally formed part of the farm which are also Listed (the law provides that buildings and other structures that pre-date July 1948 and are within the curtilage of a listed building are to be treated as part of the listed building).

The response to item 7h is also incorrect. The entire western border of the site is directly adjacent to a residential property, so to say that there would be low impact to neighbouring uses is, in our view, inaccurate.

GNLP2165 - Wymondham Road, East Carleton
This road is entirely unsuitable for use to access additional dwellings and a business park and offices as suggested. There is no demand for such facilities that would outweigh the negative impact on a small country lane and the parish council is opposed to this site being included in the local plan.

East Carleton & Ketteringham parish council has reviewed the additional sites and has the following comments to make:
East Carleton is designated as a rural village with no amenities and if additional amenities were to be provided for example a shop it would prove unsustainable. There is a proposal for a village green to be provided however the parish council has a 54-acre country park within easy walking distance of all of theproposed sites.
Any access to schools, shops medical facilities would all require the use of a car, as there is no access to any public transport. The nearest failities are in either Hethersett or Mulbarton and these are already under great strain.

There is no demand for such facilities that would outweigh the negative impact on a small country lane and the parish council is opposed to this site being included in the local plan.

GNP2167 - Hethersett Road
This piece of land is beyond the existing development of the village and the road that serves the village is unsuitable for additional housing being built in this location, the parish council is opposed to this site being included in the local plan.

GNLP2152 - Hethersett Road
This piece of land would be backfill development and would have a negative impact on existing residents and the historic church. The same objection applies to this site as it does to GNLP2167 that the roads are unsuitable to support additional housing or business.
