Jolly's Lane is a rural setting in an old part of Acle. It is used for
recreational purposes and links the South side of Acle to surrounding
villages for pedestrians and cyclists. It is too far from the village for
most people to shop or visit by foot, so would significantly increase car
traffic into the village. 150 houses would increase Acle's population by approx 10% (assuming 2 people per property) which would put significant pressure on facilities such as schools, doctor's surgery.

Jolly's Lane is a narrow lane with no footpaths, which is used as a
recreational walking and cycling route by pedestrians from Acle and
Beighton, especially by those on The Hill, Damgate Lane, and The Beighton
estate near the A47. For people living in these areas this is the only
quiet and safe walking and cycling route linking the Reedham Road with
Beighton Road (other than going into the village and out again via the
station/A47 slip road, which only has pedestrian access on one side). This
route then connects to Church Lane, Sandy Lane, and a number of
bridlepaths, footpaths and quiet roads which link to Moulton,
Freethorpe,Lingwood, Brundall and Strumpshaw. Any development along here could potentially make this road unsafe or unpleasant for walking.
Jolly's Lane is outside the sites for development in Acle's Village Plan so presumably this area is already considered unsuitable/undesirable for development by the Council. A development of 150 properties would increase the population of Acle by
about 10% (assuming 2 people per property). Acle does not have the
infrastructure to cope e.g. the Doctor's Surgery already struggles with
capacity. It would also change the nature of the village to the South of Acle, which is currently relatively isolated with a rural feel and mainly old properties.

Jolly's Lane is split from the main village by the A47. It is approximately 1 mile from the main village facilities and slightly further than that from the school. The application document states that people would walk and cycle to the village from the new development but in my experience few do so for that sort of distance (I live on the Hill which is a similar distance away). Most people would see a car as vital for everyday use and this would increase traffic into the village. As the planning document mentions vehicle and pedestrian access being from Leffins Lane rather than from Jolly's Lane, then my previous concerns raised regarding the footpath along the Reedham Road and blind junction from Jolly's Lane onto the Reedham Road have been addressed. Good luck with a 40mile an hour speed limit on Leffins Lane (why not 30? This would be a developed residential area with street lighting), Reedham Road has a 30mile an hour limit on passing Monie's Farm / Jolly's Lane which is ignored by most people.
There are other sites proposed for the village which are far more suitable i.e. are much nearer to the village centre and facilities.

A lot better sites available existing pavements to narrow Rectory road in Coltishall is far to congested and would not cope with mass development

I am concerned to see more housing being planned for Hellesdon. The Jarrolds sports site is a green lung in a densely populated area, next to an industrial/service site. We can not afford to loose this. I track and object to every step. Additionally this new build will be exited and entered from Prince Andrew's a quiet residential area, and add further to the considerable traffic on Cromer road.
In recent years we lost the golf course to housing. Eversley Road factory was a brown field site, the density of the housing and loss of mature trees is shocking.

Respondent: Upton with Fishley Parish Council

Representation:

Acle Parish Council objects to this proposal. The site is separated from the rest of the village by the railway. Access would have to be via Leffins Lane, which is at national speed limit. Traffic travelling north and east would have to drive through the already busy village centre as there is no eastbound sliproad onto the A47. The village sewerage system is already at capacity. Pedestrian access to the village centre is poor as the footway on Reedham Road regularly floods just south of the underpass meaning that pedestrians have to walk in the middle of the road.

Respondent: Broads Authority

Representation:

Site is 200m from Broads area with intervening development at Damgate, including residential and commercial, and no public views into site from Broads. Potential for run off from site would need to be managed, as site drains towards Broads. Potential to improve screening. Site has existing habitat corridors within and on its boundaries. The proximity to designated wildlife sites of international importance results in significant potential for biodiversity use and thus the need for protection and enhancement. Unlikely to impact adversely on Broads in terms of heritage.

No objection subject to satisfactory drainage and run off management and protection of existing and enhancement of habitat corridors to link to the nearby Broads habitats. Additionally consideration needs to be given to the provision of walking and cycling routes for residents to get to Acle and facilities/schools etc. there.
