Outside of agreed development boundary
Previous planning applications rejected
Planning appeal rejected
Not in the best interest of the community

Full text:

This land is not suitable for development as it is outside of the agreed development boundary for the village of Wortwell. The owners of this land have had previous planning applications denied by both SNDC and an appeal to the Planning Directorate was rejected.

The owners of the land stated in their planning appeal that they only wished to build a family home on part of the land so that they could move back into the village and be part of the community. The rest of the land was to be used for livestock and horses.

Now this seems to have changed and they now want to develop the whole area. It seems that their only interest is making money from this land rather than the best interests of the village and community.

I object to this site for housing as it is far to large a development for Wortwell, it will almost double the size of the village. Access of High Road will not be ideal and certainly not from Sancroft Way . Flooding is also another consideration in an area that already has it's problems. This is a very unsuitable development for a Waveney Valley village.

We wish to strongly object against this proposal. We do not need mass or large development in Wortwell,the infra structure does not allow for it or amenities in the village. If we wanted to live in a town we would move to one. This is a quiet village and we do not need mass development only for financial gain for individuals. We are a village in the amazing Waveney Valley and some of the development would effect Listed buildings and the lovely open spaced centre of the village with old buildings. Let's leave some of our meadows and arable land

The proposed site is far to large for a small village like Wortwell which has a lack of infrastructure to cope with a sizeable increase in housing. This would strongly impact on the environment which would encroach into the Waveney valley which is subject to flooding at times. Any business development proposal would again be catastrophic to the environment and the roads around the village would not cope. I STRONGLY object to this proposal.

A quiet village set in the midst of agricultural land, whose character and charm would be totally destroyed by a large housing development. Access roads are totally inadequate for such a large increase in traffic, and any roadworks would further degrade its rural nature.

Full text:

I strongly object to GNLP 2121 being even considered as a potential site for residential development.

The village of Wortwell currently consists of less than 300 residences, yet the proposed site has, at a conservative estimate, capacity for around 350 houses. This is totally disproportionate, and would, if commercially exploited to the full (the landowner's history to date suggests that it would be), result in the village becoming an adjunct to a huge housing estate. The rural nature of this quiet and charming village would be destroyed forever.

Access to the proposed site is a major concern; access via Low Road is laughably inadequate, along a narrow and twisty road containing Grade II listed buildings, and High Road would become a 'rat run', especially for vehicles setting off from the site towards Beccles, far exceeding its capacity for traffic. The footpaths are very narrow along long stretches of High Road, so walking along this road with children or animals would become intolerably dangerous.

In summary, it would be difficult to imagine a less suitable site for development.

The rural landscapes are very important to the Waveny valley as an area of outstanding natural beauty and once the land is lost it has gone forever and the legacy we leave behind for our children is a very bleak one, we need to protect areas like this farm land.
This land shouldn't be used as a get rich quick exercise to the detriment of the village.

The local services such as Doctors,Dentists, schools and jobs oprtunities are stretched to there limit for its current occupants.
The pertential 300plus property's would have a detrimental effect on Wortwell in a negative way.

The history of building work within the village has been ribbon building.

Wortwell would loose its village feel and community spirit.

The proposed plan is ridiculous. Wortwell is a small community and building this number of houses would mean it was more like a town. The infra-structure could not cope as it is under pressure now, i.e. doctors, schools, etc. The traffic increase should also be taken into consideration, High Road is very busy. People moved to Wortwell to be in a small friendly village

The development of site GNLP2121 would more than double the size of Wortwell village and have a detrimental impact on the "separation of the two distinctly separate parts of the settlement, and allowing the open countryside to filter into the village and preserving to a significant extent the setting of the listed buildings" (SNC Senior Conservation and Design Officer), in relation to planning appeal on 2017/2080).

Full text:

I wish to object to site GNLP2121 on two main grounds. Firstly, at a density of 25units/ha, the 13.75ha of this field could produce around 330 dwellings more than doubling the size of the village. This is in addition to the 3 sites already proposed by this landowner all of which are contiguous with the 13.75ha. Secondly, I would refer you to an email from SNC's Senior Conservation and Design Officer, in relation to planning application 2017/2080 which was refused on appeal earlier this year and which relates to part of site GNLP2121. It makes the case for retaining the historic separation of the two parts of the village and the openness of the area between the Bell pub and the historic farmhouse and farm building known as Say's Farm. The latter are Listed Buildings and it is important to retain their historic setting. For these reasons, I object to the allocation of site GNLP2121.

Email text from SNC Senior Conservation and Design Officer
The site lies at the edge of the south part of Wortwell opposite Say's Farm and its former barns (now called Tyrells barn) which are both grade II listed https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1157452 & https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1050805 . The farmhouse has a broad elevation facing west and has some good interior features of historic interest, indicating that it was relatively high status as a farm house.
The historic setting of the buildings would have been open countryside, as indicated on the C19 OS map below. Development has since occurred to the south of the farmhouse, connecting the farm buildings to the south part of the settlement. To the north, visible linear development has taken place along the High Road.
Importantly however, the gap between the listed Bell Inn, C18 house and now pub https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1050801 , and the farmhouse complex, has remained undeveloped along Low Road, retaining the separation of the two distinctly separate parts of the settlement, and allowing the open countryside to filter into the village and preserving to a significant extent the setting of the listed buildings. The historic footpath from the north end of the barn buildings to the rear of the pub is still maintained, and preserves an historic connection between the historic buildings across a field.

Late C19 OS Map
Discussion on proposal
The addition of a further dwelling on the opposite side of the Low Road to the listed buildings will reduce how they are viewed within the setting of open countryside in terms of views in the approaches along Low Road. The gap provides an historically important separation between two distinct parts of the settlement as well as providing the setting for the listed buildings. An addition of a dwelling will erode this gap.
Conclusion
I therefore consider that the proposed new dwelling on this site will result in harm to the setting of the listed buildings through further reducing how they are viewed within an area of open countryside, and also affect the important preserved gap of open countryside between the two distinct parts of the settlement. Being outline, there is insufficient detail to determine more exactly the level of harm of any building on the immediate setting of the adjacent listed buildings, however the principal of building on this site can be considered to result in a level of harm when considering the planning balance.

Whilst not opposed to smaller, appropriate development on the fringes we strongly object to this inappropriately large proposed development; having moved to Wortwell specifically for a quieter and more rural way of life, Wortwell will become a town, the community feel will be lost. It seems disproportionate the number of people who will be impacted negatively versus who will benefit financially.
Infrastructure/amenities are not sufficient - neither does Harleston have capacity to cope with residents already struggling to find a GP/dentist.
The proposed development land is home to a range of wildlife - not to mention the increased flood risk.

Whilst not being opposed to smaller, more appropriate development on the fringes of the village, we strongly object to this inappropriately large proposed development; having moved to Wortwell specifically for a quieter and more rural way of life, this is likely to result in us moving away from the area. Wortwell will become a town not a village likely with many residents absent during the day and the community feel of the village will be lost. It also seems disproportionate when comparing the number of people who will be impacted negatively (including in terms of a reduction in the value of their property) to the one person who will benefit financially.
The infrastructure and amenities of Wortwell are not sufficient to deal with such a large increase in the size of the village - neither does Harleston have capacity to cope with this increase in residents in the local area with current residents already struggling to find space at a GP surgery or dentist.
The proposed development land is home to a range of wildlife - including barn owls and bats - we should not be impacting on this precious wildlife or rural landscape. This is not to mention the likely increased risk of flooding as a result of building onto, and covering over, land prone to flooding.

Full text:

This site is in the heart of a historical village in the Waveney valley with vast wildlife and history.
Access To wortwell is via roads deemed as Amber And far from sufficient for this type of development. 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? Issues to consider - Where
would these individuals work?? Look at the employment figures. To travel
would generate 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.
There are several properties dating back to the 17th century, which would be 'lost' to a huge housing development. Wortwell is a rural village - not a town.
Housing needs are being met in other areas close by

I strongly object to this large development as the infrastructure will not cope with this amount of people moving in to a small area. Wortwell has only one main road through and this is already busy being used as a rat run to miss the very busy junction onto the A143. The environmental impact would be detrimental to the area and wild life. Flooding would also be a problem with so much land being concreted over. Also the doctors and dentists in Bungay and Harleston are at over capacity with people having to Que at 7am to get an appointment.

The environmental impact would be detrimental to the area and wild life. Flooding would also be a problem with so much land being concreted over. Also the doctors and dentists in Bungay and Harleston are at over capacity with people having to Que at 7am to get an appointment.

Representation:

Wortwell is a small village and as such the infrastructure serving the local community cannot cope with the current demand, the current doctors surgery and education facilities are inadequate for the number of residence currently in Wortwell and Harleston, the road network is totally unsuitable to serve a large housing estate, quite apart from the damage that this would cause to the local environment and wildlife that we currently enjoy.
Wortwell is a rural village and should remain so
THIS PROPOSAL IS TOTALLY INAPPROPRIATE
