Existing road network unable to cope with traffic now, over development would also put additional pressure on existing services, doctors schools, etc.

Full text:

The proposed development of a further 150 homes to the southern end of the village is totally unacceptable putting further strain on the main exit route south from the village, with traffic cued back into the village on a regular basis. any residents would be inclined to use their cars to visit the Doctors, taking children to school visiting shops etc causing more traffic chaos. The B1149 road through Horsford is a main route to Holt north Norfolk we have seen a massive increase in the volume of traffic using this road in recent years this is probably due to further housing and commercial developments in those areas. Any further development in Horsford will put further strain on the schools, doctors, etc. Our village is full no further development please.

The Council objects to this site as the road network in that area is already very congested and there would be a lack of connection with the main part of the village.

The site promoter is undertaking further work to assess the impact and mitigation opportunities based on the assessment findings and is working closely with stakeholders and decision makers with requirements being met where justified for later submission.

Initial highway access assessment undertaken for the site identified a viable access strategy and the site promoters will continue to work closely with stakeholders and decision makers to ensure their needs are met where justified.

GNLP0359R (Horsford 150 dwellings)

It is anticipated that up to 150 dwellings could be delivered on the site with associated landscaping, public open space and infrastructure. This assumes an average net density of 30 dwellings per hectare. The primary vehicular access is proposed from Drayton Lane where a right turn lane would allow access into the site. An emergency vehicle access is proposed off the old Drayton Lane providing an alternative route for such vehicles into the site if required.

The HELAA utilises a red/amber/green (RAG) scoring system to measure individual constraints and impacts associated with proposed development sites. It is noted that this site attracts green ratings for Accessibility to Services, Utilities Infrastructure, Contamination and Ground Stability, Flood Risk, Market Attractiveness, Significant Landscapes, Biodiversity and Geodiversity, Historic Environment and Open Space and Green Infrastructure. It also attracts amber ratings for Access, Utilities Capacity, Townscapes, Transport and Roads and Compatibility with Neighbouring Uses, however the GNDP do not feel that any of the constraints identified are absolute. The site promoter is undertaking further work to assess the impact and mitigation opportunities based on the assessment findings and is working closely with stakeholders and decision makers with requirements being met where justified for later submission.

It is noted that the Highways Authority raised initial concerns about Drayton Lane being substandard for access purposes, however the site promoters are in agreement with the GNDP that mitigation is possible. Initial highway access assessment undertaken for the site identified a viable access strategy and the site promoters will continue to work closely with stakeholders and decision makers to ensure their needs are met where justified.

The road infrastructure is already being stretched in the village, and this will only deteriorate when existing developments off Green Lane are complete. To add further housing to the village would only make things even worse.
