Wortwell and surrounding area infrastructure not suitable for any more housing development.

I object to the development totally. This land has been used by the local community for years, with the land owner allowing this. Only recently has the owner put up signage baring people from using the fiend. The road system in Wortwell is not fit for purpose to support a larger village, there is no local shops so any new homeowners will require the use of cars causing more local pollution, there is no capacity at local dentists or doctors surgeries to take on any new patients - this has been highlighted by the CQC. This land has been refused planning permission previously.

Historic village , poor infrastructure unable to support a large development.
This would have a detrimental environmental impact in many ways.

This site is in the heart of a historical village ,with a public footpath on this land. Access down a small road is difficult at present, particularly if met by another car. The road in this area floods from the water Opposite the plot towards the mill. The economic and land assessment highlights the roads in this area as Amber - I would say red! Towards Bungay is a dangerous t junction on to the a143, which will be exacerbated by more traffic leaving the village. There are crossroads in the village on a blind bend, with parking on some nights blocking the visibility ( pub, residents) The proposer states that this could be used for housing? Where would these individuals work?? Look at the employment figures. To travel would create more road traffic and congestion, on already unsuitable roads . GP surgeries? Recent CQC inspection for harleston practice (15/2/18)already indicates improvement required in meeting appointments for service users- indicating that the practice is already to capacity. (45% met- national average 73%!) this is well below the national average. Schools- travel required to harleston. Limited bus service. Dental- harleston BUPA practice confirmed today they are full to NHS Clients. Employment? Travel required as discussed earlier. No shop- travel required. THIS would not be a green development option

This is currently a wild area full of flora and fauna. It has a very well used footpath running through the centre of it, and the land provides a natural barrier between the road and the caravan site. I believe the area would be prone to flooding and if covered by houses, this natural flooding would instead affect nearby properties and roads.

My wife and I wish to express our views that it would be madness to even think of having a Housing Development in Wortwell. Its always been known as a retirement Village and a very close Community. We just would not cope with the traffic and it would destroy such a lovely Village. Please Don't Pass this we moved from new housing estate for Peace and Quiet because these new Developments just cause trouble with Low cost Housing and crime rate goes up. So Please listen to the residents of Wortwell.

This really is an outrageous proposal and one I TOTALLY OBJECT to! This is a "Village" in the countryside. It certainly won't be that if this idea comes to fruition.

Wortwell cannot cope with such a plan. The ONE main road through the village cannot cope with the traffic now let alone the thought of every new house having at least one vehicle. Wortwell is in independent village and certainly does not to become a suburb of Harleston. Clearly the proposer of this "Get rich" idea cares little for village communities.

This really is an outrageous proposal and one I TOTALLY OBJECT to! This is a "Village" which in the English dictionary means "a group of houses and other buildings that is smaller than a town, usually in the countryside. It certainly won't be that if this idea comes to fruition.

This proposal COMPLETELY changes that definition. Wortwell cannot cope with such a plan. The ONE main road through the village cannot cope with the traffic now let alone the thought of every new house having at least one vehicle. Wortwell is in independent village and certainly does not to become a suburb of Harleston. Clearly the proposer of this "Get rich" idea cares little for village communities.

Already so many villagers have said so much and the list gets longer day by day and I sincerely hope many more continue to register their displeasure. This preposterous idea needs scrapping RIGHT NOW!

The proposed development site is at the heart of a small rural village, and unless carried out with great sympathy (difficult with a modern build), would have a disproportionate impact on the character of the village, which also lacks the infrastructure to support much of an increase (no shop, limited public transport, limited access to medical or dental care, over-subscribed local schools). It is also difficult to see how safe access to the site could be provided, with any access points being located on, or very close to road bends reducing visibility.

I am writing this letter to air my views on this matter of additional housing in Wortwell. The problems it would cause would be overwhelming to say the least.
There is the problems of traffic going through the village. Its already ridiculous as they use the village to cut through to save going through the bypass. Police are working on this now with the council but to no avail at present.
There are problems to get to see a doctor as they have very few dentists in Harleston wont take on any new patients.
Schools are overcrowded, buses rarely run to suit schools or working people (Etc),
Access would be really difficult as they would cut through Wortwell Village again.
Car parking to certain areas would be a problem. Drainage problems. There's a lot of flat land on certain parts of wortwell and we have flooding at certain times of the year with heavy rainfall.
The land would be ruined we have a pretty village and flood rural spaces for wildlife and walks etc. it would become a concrete jungle. I have personally lived in the same house in Wortwell for over (51) years and brought my family up in a peaceful location (we do no need to meet the need for certain housing but wortwell for more reasons then I could list is not suitable for this project. There are a lot of derelict housesin all places around the country (& cities) etc. that could save time and money if they could be restored instead of looking on eye sore.

There is a lot more suitable places to build around than Wortwell. The whole character of Wortwell would be ruined. Water run off could also affect houses that would be at a lower level then new builds. People would have no privacy at the back of existing properties.

I would please seriously reconsider your plans try to see the bigger picture please.

This site is on the edge of Wortwell fishing lakes & access to either High Road or Low Road would be nigh on impossible. It is currently a wild area full of natural wonders with a well used footpath running through the centre. This site partly floods and which if built on could impact nearby properties.

I object to the development of GNLP 2036 on the following grounds :
1. Site is at the very heart of the village, new builds here will be an eyesore and adversely affect its unique rural charm.
2. Site is a wildlife haven, barn owls frequent the entire site, not just convenient parts of it.
3. Site access - it would be hard to find a more unsuitable location in the entire village.
4. Climate change will make greater flooding of this area inevitable, it is grossly irresponsible to build on land at the very edge of a flood plain.

The proposal will cause harm and overwhelm the rural character and scenic beauty of the village, and wider landscape, and the way the village functions.
The proposed site will increase the risk of flooding in the area and wider vicinity, and the area is unsuitable for housing allocation as it could be subject to future flooding.
The access and development of the site will increase the risk associated with traffic congestion and highway safety.
The infrastructure for service provision will not meet the need, the development of this site will generate.

As a resident of Wortwell I am lodging my objection to the site development
on the following grounds

- The location for the proposed development lies in the heart of Wortwell, a
village of rural location and community. It is an area of natural scenic value, with an abundance of wildlife. The proposal will negatively impact on the rural character and beauty of the village and will overwhelm it, and I am concerned that the proposal will not improve the character and quality of
the village and the way it functions.
- I am concerned that to increase the development of this site will seriously encroach on the underdeveloped Waveney rural river valley landscape, and cause harm and overwhelm the strong character and rural setting of the Waveney Valley.
- I am concerned that to increase the development of this site, will further extend the limit/boundary of housing development, and will result in the harmful incursion of development, eroding the undeveloped gap between the two main parts of the village. The proposal would therefore conflict with the aims of Local Planning Policy which seeks that all development should respect, conserve and where possible enhance the landscape character of its immediate and wider environment and for planning to resist proposals which have significant adverse impact. A previous planning application in the vicinity gave considerable importance and weight to preserving the
rural landscape and setting of listed buildings within the village. (2017/2080), which continues to be relevant to this application.
- I am concerned that the proposed development far exceeds the needs in
this community and will result in additional strain on the current infrastructure to provide services for this increased level of housing. The medical and education services in the area are already stretched to capacity, due to increased housing in Harleston. Wortwell itself has no shop and the bus service is limited, and we are reliant on nearby towns for supporting services.
- I am concerned about the access to this site and the risks associated with increased traffic congestion and highway safety within the local community.
- This is an area prone to flooding as it is on the edge of a watermeadow, and in fact part of the field is in Flood Zone 2 (medium flood risk) and therefore unsuitable for housing allocation, as it could be subject to future flooding. There will be pressures on existing drainage systems, if this site is developed, and this will result in further risk of flooding to this area and to other areas, in the near vicinity.

Part of the site was allocated for 5 dwellings in the previous South Norfolk local plan. The area agreed is in flood zone 1 and therefore suitable for development. I support this proposal. However I don't support the current proposed extension to the agreed because it is in flood zone 2 and would represent an over development in a rural river valley that is at risk of flooding.

I strongly object to this meadow being put forward for housing, there is no beniifit to the village of a devopment of this size on such a small rural road which is always having problems with near misses and flooding.
The meadow supports a diverse amount of wildlife and when the land has gone it's gone forever, building wildlife habitats is only away of sweetening the planning process the area is a wildlife habitat in its own right.

PLANNING APPLICATION NO

One-line summary including what the application proposes, where it is (the site) and who is proposing it (the applicant):
Proposed erection of 412.5 houses in Wortwell by Greater Norwich Local Plan Team.
I am against the plans for new houses because Wortwell is a nice place with pleny of open space and its quite. I believe that if the new houses were to be built it would have a dire affect on village life and the residents that live here.I also object to the new builds because of the following:
1. The proposed site of 13.75 hectares would 412.5 houses. An increase of 1.53 times the current housing.
2. The newbuilds will over the existing house will destroy the character of the village.
3. The character of Wortwell is rural,generally older houses with 6 new house built within the last decade,agricultural and nice walks.
4. On a ratio of 1 to every 100 residents this proposal represents a ratio of 85:1 on this ratio.
In accordance with their own internal guidelines, Wortwell Parish Council only adheres to the relevant planning considerations.
Planning history of the village.
National and Local planning polices guidance.
Highway safty issuses, Traffic issues and car parking provisions.
Local Drainage issuse, local flooding issuse - impact of water run off onto houses located on the lower level than the proposed site.
Location as a rural village on the Waveney Vally on the border of Norfolk and Suffolk, an area of outstanding beauty, walks and freedom of movement, flood plans and grazing marshes.Dominance of a modern housing estate against the backdrop of the village with some houses dating back, in some cases before the 17th century.Impact on the enviroment. Impact on local and wider infrastructure and the church at redenhall.

There is a limited bus service that's not fit for purpose for working or school hours. No School, No shop, A two road system that meet in the centre of the village on a blind bend, On going problems with speeding and antisocial driving behaviour. Where the village is used it's like a rat run to avoid through traffic having to go on the bypass. An increase with in traffic would be considered dangerous. Medical and Dental services are overstretched in Harleston to the point that NO-ONE expects to see the GP appointment as well as the GP's Practice is deemed to be on of the worst in the uk. I would not like to see our village or surrounding countryside turned into a housing estate. Also there are Barn Owls nesting around Wortwell and the proposed housing will be on the Owls territory. As well as other wildlife which are seen.

I object to these proposed plans for Wortwell High Road and Low Road.

Wortwell lies in the Waveney Valley - an area of natural outstanding beauty which all those living in the village treasure and we are very proud of our riverside community. It is a community that values the quality of rural life, the tranquillity of a rural life, space 'to be' and a sense of independence.

The addition of further development would not as you say 'protect and enhance the environment' but would go a long way in destroying it with all the additional needs in the practical sense - communication networks, roads, traffic, parking, drains - and remember too that this is an area within a flood risk zone. We should not be building here. No specifications were given as to numbers of properties or specific use which fills me with horror. In addition there would be all the additional infrastructure needed to support a larger community. This will no longer be a village with a village's pace of life.
