Dangerous access -limited visibility -no pathway either side of Church View - proposed development more than 10% of the houses in the village. No utilities or amenities.

Full text:

The proposal of 25 dwellings with access coming of Church View is in my view highly dangerous ,Church View is on a bend and there is no pathway either side for pedestrians and car drivers will not see any traffic until they are jutting out into the road. Church Road is used as a rat run as a direct route from Mulbarton to the A140 and cars continue to speed. Swainsthorpe hasn't any utilities ,there is a church and public house. There are no other amenities.
There would be a massive impact on our beautiful countryside again. Why do the councils continue to use green field sites? There must be brown field sites and other land available. Please save our land for future generations so they can enjoy our green and pleasant land. We moved into the country to enjoy the views and peace and quiet not for constant noise and air pollution

The development designation of the village is 'infill' how can 25 houses be considered in this category?
A proposed exit through Church View is on to a blind bend in Church Road making it very dangerous.

Risk to pedestrians including children trying to access the village in the evenings having caught the bus from Norwich. Risk to walkers using Church Road which in some parts has no pavement and which is poorly lit. Recent speedwatch has recorded vehicles travelling at speeds close to 50mph through the village.

Full text:

Church Road is narrow twisting and lacking in pavements in some sections. There is minimal street lighting and a recent speedwatch survey showed cars travelling along it from the A140 at speeds approaching 50mph. Pedestrians are already at risk especially after dark. More housing will increase traffic volume and compound this problem.
Access from proposed new site on to A140 from Church Road or a newly created access road will cause more delays at peak times. Traffic travelling north along the A140 towards Norwich approaches the village via a blind corner and one has to accelerate hard to turn left towards Norwich in the mornings. Turning right in a southerly direction is next to impossible. residents overcome this problem by travelling north and then doing a U turn further up the A140. This is dangerous. There are frequent accidents.
A bus service used by local children to get to and from school uses 2 stops on the A140. For children returning from school after dark 2 lanes of busy traffic have to be negotiated to reach Church Road. High risk of injury or death.

Does not meet your own criteria described in your SNDC policies.(detailed above)
Destroys a picturesque Norfolk village for no good reason
Traffic problems in and out of the proposed site and on to the A140 constitute a danger to the public.
Destroys a productive agricultural field.

Full text:

An estate of 25 houses cannot be described as "infill" It does not meet any of your own criteria as a service village,have access to a primary school or meet your requirements for 6 services from a menu of 12. The use of a productive agricultural green field site goes against all the principles of countryside management. The traffic generated from this estate will be intolerable on Church Road and access in and out is on a dangerous blind bend. The access to the A140 will be further compromised. The view of the village and the Church from the A140 when travelling south depicts a picturesque historic Norfolk Village this will be lost forever and "erodes the rural character of the local landscape and consequent sense of place" Joint Policy 2 of the Joint Core Strategy. This proposal is unsound on many levels.

Further residential development in Swainsthorpe would lead to added pressures being placed on villages that have the facilities that Swainsthorpe lacks, without those facilities being upgraded to meet inevitable demand. Mulbarton is the nearest community containing a surgery, a school and shops, and has already absorbed hundreds of new households in the last decade, with no account taken of its ability to service this increase. Further development will increase traffic movements onto and off the A140 and between Swainsthorpe and Mulbarton along a narrow lane that is not suitable to take much of the traffic that already uses it.

Swainsthorpe is designated as an "other village", limited infill only. This number of houses is completely incompatible with that.
Church Road is a minor road with barely room to pass a large vehicle and no adequate pavement or footpath but a lot of traffic to and from Mulbarton. This development would be utilising a turning which is at a particularly dangerous bend, opposite the village play area and close to a turning point for the school bus. At drop off and pick-up times there is increased traffic and on-road parking. There is no infrastructure to support this.

This proposal is inappropriate for the village, with a disproportionate number of houses for the size of the village. There are no amenities to support this size of development. It would also destroy agricultural land, wildlife habitats and views across open farmland to the historic Grade II* listed church. Vehicular access via Church view is completely unsuitable for the number of vehicles which would have to use it. It also opens onto a very dangerous blind bend and where there is recent evidence that many vehicles speed here. This is also near to where school children catch their school bus.

Twenty five houses on this site will have an unacceptable impact on the local environment and community. Surrounding roads are inadequate; there are no schools, no shops, no surgery and no realistic transport services. It will damage agricultural land, destroy wildlife habitats and cause over population of a small historic village already bereft of resources. Additional traffic to and from this site will pollute the village centre and increase congestion exiting Church Road onto the A140, a junction already dangerous to negotiate.

1)This proposal must be seen in the context of other residential and industrial proposals, the cumulative impact would be a significant assault on the character and capacity of the village.
2)The proposals contain no reference to contributions to the infrastructure or services in the village
3)Traffic would access and leave the site via a blind bend onto Church Road
4)Increase levels of traffic would aggravate existing problems caused at the Church Road A140 junction
5)The proposals sacrifice good agricultural land which has been farmed for a millennium.
6) The scale of this proposal cannot be described as 'infill'.

Full text:

This proposed development cannot be viewed as being separate from either the industrial development proposed by Ben Burgess Ltd on land to the north of this site, nor the other residential proposals within the village. It is the cumulative impact these proposals will have on a small service village. This proposal and the others cannot be considered as infill development consistent with the definition and associated requirements as an 'other village'.
In relation to this particular proposal I would wish to make the following points:

1) The proposal would sacrifice agricultural land when there is ample land available. The HELAA report has identified 3600 hectares equating to 68,900 dwelling against a need identified of 38,988. This research identified a significant excess of proposed sites. Planning priority should be given to those sites that produce maximum contribution at minimum environmental damage.

2)The proposal suggests 25 dwellings, this implies 50 additional cars plus delivery and other service use - perhaps in excess of 200 traffic movements per day. The volume of traffic and the proposed use of exit onto a blind bend to Church Road is a significant hazard. The volume of traffic will aggravate the existing traffic problems through the village and along the A140 and will result in gridlock at the Church Road junction.

3) Swainsthorpe is a service village devoid of services. The additional housing proposed will(in the absence if significant infrastructure investment)mean more travel time for new residents to schools,health and other vital services.
4)The proposed developments will have a devastating impact on the character of this village.

Dangerous exit on a bend from the proposed development onto the already narrow Church Road.
The additional traffic will swamp this quiet village.
No local facilities (contrary to that stated in the application).
Hazardous junction with Church Road and the A140 and the increase in vehicle movement will increase the risk of accidents at this point and on the bend where the exit to the proposed site is to be located.

Full text:

This is a badly thought through housing proposal which smacks of profiteering from an equally badly thought through scheme proposing an industrial site for Ben Burgess close by.
The proposed entrance/exit to the site is a narrow road leading on to an equally narrow Church Road onto an extremely dangerous bend in the village. Whilst the number of dwellings to be erected on this proposed site has not been disclosed, the fact that they are to be "low cost" suggests several with an equally large number of cars requiring access and exit from the development.
The village and surrounding roads are narrow and dangerous and this can only worsen should car numbers be increased. The junction of Church Road and the A140 is already dangerous, particularly for those seeking to turn right heading south. To add to the numbers already using the village as a "rat run" from Mulbarton to gain access to the A140, would create a major hazard at this junction.

Those lucky enough to own cars will have to exit the site along a narrow lane on to an extremely dangerous bend in the village and the additional traffic this proposed development will bring will create yet more chaos and danger as they try to exit the village onto A140.

Swainsthorpe is a small village with no facilities, it dos not even have continuous pavements, to allow you to walk the length of the village without walking in the road, and to add 25 more houses would not be a good provision for those who move into those houses, and would increase the traffic for the current residents in Church view to an unacceptable level.
More housing in Church View would spoil the peace and quiet of this small cul de sac and rob the residents of their view over open farmland.

Adding 25 houses to church view would affect the balance of the village. There is only a tiny unmade road, to serve the current residents of Church View, which comes out at a dangerous angle to Church Road, and the increase in traffic would increase the risks of accidents at this junction.
Swainsthorpe is a small village with no facilities and to plan to add 25 houses to a village that has no shops, or even continuous foot paths where families could walk safely through the village seems to lack imagination
The additional cars ( 2 per family?) would mean another 50 cars using this unsafe access road to Church road and also leaving the village on the A140 seems to fly in the face of promoting safer roads.
