Forncett Parish Council: We consider ourselves 'borderline' service villages, and, although some development would not be ruled out, concerns over lack of facilities, transport links and narrow local roads mean that any development should be in keeping with our village situation and surroundings and on a scale which is commensurate with the limited facilities available.

This comment submitted on behalf of Forncett Parish Council
There seems to be no opportunity to make a general comment on all sites within the Parish of Forncett (St Peter, including Forncett End, and St Mary) so this comment is applicable to all sites - those originally submitted and 'new' sites Autumn 2018.
Forncett Parish Council has decided not to make comments on individual sites, but would wish to make the following points:
We feel our settlements are 'borderline' Service Villages with no doctor, post office, general store etc. and mediocre transport links. We do not rule out modest future development but this should be in keeping with our village situation and surroundings and on a scale which is commensurate with the limited facilities available. Of major concern is that many of our roads are single track with few passing places - which struggle to cope with the level of traffic at the moment. Further extensive (or even moderate) development requiring access on these roads would be problematic.

My principal concern is the proximity of the development to the Grade 1 listed Forncett St Mary Church and the general unsuitability of the site for development. Narrow roads,a general lack of infrastructure and being adjacent to a conservation area do nothing to enhance the application.The Planning- Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas-Act 1990 sets special criteria for development affecting a listed building or its setting.The National Planning Policy Framework states that the significance of listed buildings and conservation areas can be harmed or lost by development in their setting, which would be the case if the application were approved.

Objection to this plan on the following grounds :- lack of facilities, lack of transport links and narrow local roads adversely affecting safety, extremely close proximity to grade one listed church, and destruction of natural habitat. Complete change of village character spoiling existing rural surroundings, and opening the way to possible further development.

This site is adjacent to a narrow rural lane. Development would have a detrimental impact on the setting of the grade 1 listed St Mary's church immediately south of the proposed site. Development would have an inappropriate effect on the very rural character of the surrounds. There is no provision for services and drainage in the locality. Development of this site would adversely change the rural setting and the linear nature of the village as this site would appear to have potential for a "cluster" of houses which would be out of character with the immediate locale.

Object on basis of lack of suitable local infrastructure and access, as well as the detrimental impact on the immediate and wider village environment.

This site is adjacent to a very narrow rural lane, unsuited to either construction traffic or increased domestic traffic flow and access.
A development as proposed would adversely and detrimentally impact both the immediate surroundings - the grade 1 listed St Mary's church is adjacent to the proposed site - and the wider village environment.There is no provision for services and drainage in the locality, and infrastructure for schools, parking, footpath access etc is also poor.
The proposed development would significantly change the character of the centre of this very rural village and appear out of keeping with the existing style and density of residences in that area. Additional traffic flow through the village is also considered to be inappropriate for the existing road structure.

This proposed building site is on a very narrow rural lane, totally unsuitable for construction traffic and increased domestic traffic and access.
A development as proposed would impact the village adversely, the site is adjacent to the grade 1 listed St Mary's church and graveyard, and would impact on the views across the valley and the river Tas, it would change the very heart of the village centre and the wider village environment.There is no provision for services and drainage in the locality, and infrastructure for schools, parking, footpath access etc is poor.
The proposed building would change the character of this very rural village. Additional traffic flow through the village is also considered to be inappropriate for the existing road structure.

Adverse effect on Tas Valley, Grade 1 Listed Church, Conservation Area, Ribbon development, other sites allocated within yards but remaining undeveloped, road unsuitable, flood risk, lack of infrastructure and limited utilities, failure to satisfy housing need, agricultural land providing food.

This site is not suitable for development in that:-
1. It would have an adverse effect on the views from and to the Tas Valley which at this point is an area of outstanding natural beauty (even if it is not perhaps officially designated as such).
2. It is adjacent to a Grade 1 listed church. Special rules apply to any development next to such buildings. The development would adversely effect the view to and from the listed building. This church and its graveyard are particularly impressive because of the surrounding countryside. It is an area of peace and tranquillity. The development would destroy this.
3. It amounts to ribbon development which is not usually acceptable in planning terms.
4.It is outside the settlement development boundaries and other sites for housing development lie within the boundaries but have yet to be developed.
5. Access to the development would be from a single track country lane which is already too busy.
6. I understand that this field has flooded in the past.
7. There are no mains for sewage or gas. Public transport is minimal.
8. Housing density requirements would normally suggest approximately 45 homes on a site of 1.51 ha. So does the proposed development comply with planning density requirements?
9. Do 6 upmarket dwellings really satisfy housing need?
10. There is limited infrastructure to support housing development.
11. It is not in keeping with and would have an adverse effect on the adjacent conservation area.
12. It is not a brown field site it is grade a agricultural land which provides the nations food.

Food producing agricultural land should be protected for future generations. Lack of infrastructure and limited utilities. Adverse effect on Grade 1 Listed Church and the Tas valley. Additional traffic on narrow country lanes. Archaeological dig may be required.

This proposed building site is totally unsuitable for development in that:
1. This is not a brown field site it is high grade agricultural land producing crops for many decades. From an environmental point of view it should be protected for present and future generations.
2. The majority of roads in Forncett St Mary are single track with no pedestrian pavements. The proposed site is adjacent to a narrow rural lane and any increased traffic flow or access would have a detrimental impact on the village.
3. There are no mains for sewage or gas supplies and other facilities are very limited.
4. It is adjacent to St Marys Church which is a Grade 1 Listed Building.
5.The proposed development will have an adverse effect on the view to and from the Tas Valley. Also it is not in keeping with the adjacent Conservation Area.
6. According to an old book in my possession, titled "The Economic Development of a Norfolk Manor 1086-1565" by F G Davenport, first published in 1906, this land is part of the site of the ancient Forncett Manor and a full archaeological dig may be required.

I strongly object to this proposal. The site is on the side of Low Road closest to the River Tas, which is a site of considerable natural beauty and which, at the moment, is only adversely affected by a few post war bungalows which were approved for agricultural occupancy.

Houses on the proposed site will seriously impact on the Tas Valley, on St. Mary's Church (Grade 1), and other properties on the east side of Low Road which were well sited by our forebears so as to blend in with the topography just above the flood plain.

If there is a centre to the Forncetts it is the area of St. Peter's Church and the Primary School. This is where, in my opinion, any new development should take place.

I support this proposal. The site is well away from the Tas Valley and adjacent to a row of houses (ex-LA, I believe).
