Since housing development has been in practice entirely disconnected from the development of services to support normal life, Mulbarton has absorbed as much growth as it can handle. More households will simply further degrade access to services within the village for both current residents and newcomers. Congestion is already an issue at school opening and closing hours; local roads are too small for the traffic they are expected to carry; surgery appointments are difficult to come by; litter and anti-social behaviour are noticeably increasing. None of these aspects will be improved by the addition of new households.

Mulbarton is already suffering as a result of significant expansion in housing over the last 10 years. Further development would stretch the existing services too far. The road access into this site is narrow and unsuitable for further development.

Unsuitable as access and highways are not fit for developments of this size, roads at either side are wide enough in parts for one vehicle only.
Contrary to the approved and adopted Neighbourhood Plan.
Infrastructure not robust enough to cope with the current population.

This site is unsuitable for very simple reasons:
Both Rectory Lane and The Rosery are, in parts, wide enough for one vehicle only. There is frequently a backlog of traffic sitting in Rectory Lane, waiting for traffic to pass from the other direction. This is exacerbated at school pick up and drop off times, where a large volume of vehicles park along Rectory Lane.
A development of this size is completely contrary to the approved and adopted Neighbourhood Plan.
With one large development currently taking place in the village and another potentially going ahead, the infrastructure simply cannot cope - doctors, school and roads are all struggling to cope.

At what point do we call this village a town? Too much development has already taken place in Mulbarton with a disastrous effect to Swainsthorpe, No thought for the lack of adequate roads to deal with the traffic that's added by excess development, no thought for lack of doctor capability to accommodate the extra people (2 week plus waiting for an appointment) please stop this mad rush to hell in a hand cart!

The scale of development indicated by the size of the area (no residential housing numbers are indicated) is totally out of proportion to the infrastructure and services available to support it. The traffic problems currently experienced by neighbouring residents will be made even more acute. The loss of agricultural land is very worrying, as is damage to wildlife and the ecology, increased levels of noise, fumes and light pollution. The damage already done to Mulbarton by cluttered and uniform estates has destroyed the character of what was a charming village. Good news for developers is bad news for our villages.

Mulbarton is not suitable for 'large scale growth'. It is already at capacity putting a strain on the local amenities. The roads do not support the extra traffic generated by yet more housing development.

Swainsthorpe is already a 'rat run' traffic through the village has increased significantly with the existing developments as people try to access the A140.

The promoter must be out of her mind ! How can she possibly be serious about this site, she obviously has no incite to country life. I'm appalled at her application, this area of land is stunning and has single lane access to the proposed development .Obviously another money making exercise at the expense of proper countryside dwellers,

I strongly object to the proposal, which is clearly linked to GNLP0315. The development would drastically change the character of the open farming landscape that currently surrounds our property, where we have lived in rural tranquillity since 2004. The current road infrastructure is wholly inappropriate and would need to be radically changed to support a development of this size. Should this development be allowed to proceed, it would, without doubt increase levels of traffic noise, air pollution, light pollution and cleanliness, which would force us to change the way we live our lives and cause a significant loss of amenity.

Proposed development of Mulbarton sites puts the village under severe threat of ruining the rural aspect of the village and turn it into something comparable to a small town. Rural villages should be protected. There are other better sites within South Norfolk and around Norwich with infrastructure better prepared for developments such as is proposed here.

Rural villages should be protected. There are other better sites within South Norfolk and around Norwich with infrastructure better prepared for developments such as is proposed here. Rectory Lane is totally unsuitable for this size development and would require a massive installation and/or upgrade of service facilities. Already the village facilities such as the doctor's surgery and school are at capacity and there is no clear indication as to how these proposed new developments would solve this issue - they would only seem to add to the problem.

Norfolk FA are supportive of residential development in Mulbarton, associated to the proposed S106 agreement which could provide an offsite contribution to support local football provision. Mulbarton Wanderers FC are a growing football club and have plans to try to redevelop their existing facility.

Further development in Mulbarton would simply put increased pressure on an already poor traffic situation in and around the village. The village roads were simply not designed for the current level of population in the village and increasing the residency will just exacerbate the issue. The main road through the village and towards Norwich is also already running at capacity and building more houses and putting in traffic islands will simply make the job of driving past or out of the village even more difficult.

The main road through the village and towards Norwich is also already running at capacity and building more houses and putting in traffic islands will simply make the job of driving past or out of the village even more difficult. For example when there was an accident at Thickthorn earlier this month, the Mulbarton road became the diversion and this led to queuing traffic all the way to Harford bridge. The village simply cannot cope with more development.

South of Rectory Lane
We dispute the RAG assessment which we does not accurately reflect the constraints and impacts of developing this site.
The unclassified roads serving the site are inadequate to serve the proposed development. Development on this site would give rise to conditions detrimental to highway safety.
The field to the south of Rectory Lane floods in winter and the lane due to the parked car frequenting the local school and is considered a safety hazard.
No proper safe access to plot via existing single track road.
See latest CPRE comments re above and particularly section 4.
Limited access to area due to single track road, which has width of 2.8 metres, has weight limit of 7.5 T and has house either side. Access to either B1113 or A140 poor and both roads running at capacity levels without the extra housing at Long Stratton, Hempnall and Swainsthorpe
If 30 per hectare, then 440 houses

Please find attached comments from Mulbarton Parish Council on all of the proposed site allocations for the area in and around Mulbarton. We have provided comments against each of the individual sites. We disagree with the proposed site allocations and the underlying assumptions.

Our general view is in line with the comments provided by CPRE Norfolk, which you will be familiar with. Your earlier letter of 29th October 2018 stated that "growth will be carefully planned to ensure it is located in the most appropriate locations and will be supported by appropriate and timely infrastructure provision". We disagree that the proposed site allocations and individual site assessments follow this approach.

See attached file.
