This remains an inappropriate site for this development. The access on to the A140 would be unsafe and cause significant disruption at peak times into and out of Norwich. There must be Brown Field Sites available for this type of development. There must also be sites more geographically suited with easier access to the A11 for distribution of their goods.

I find it extraordinary that anyone would consider building an industrial complex on agricultural land, when there are designated sites for such buildings in and around Norwich. I hear almost every day that the planet is being destroyed and although this field is not the Amazon Rainforest, it is important to wildlife which in turn is important to us, and should be protected.
Furthermore, you must be aware that the A140 is so busy that it is almost impossible to join it at the Swainsthorpe turn at certain times of the day.

It will make the junction of Church road and A140 more dangerous as frustrated drivers take more risks due to traffic tail backs.

Full text:

I object to this proposal on the grounds that it will negatively impact on the accessibility of the A140 for Swainsthorpe residents. I access the A140 twice daily from Swainsthorpe and can often be sitting at the junction with Church Road for between 5-10 minutes before there is a safe enough break in traffic. This continues throughout the day and is not only during rush hour. Entering Swainsthorpe from the A140, using the middle lane to wait in, is very dangerous and it similarly can take an extended period of time to cross the carriageway. Any further developments in this area will only serve to increase the pressure on this area where even now traffic traffic can tail back from Newton Flotman to Dunston hall.The moving of heavy, slow vehicles along this part of the carriageway will continue to exacerbate this problem and make it more dangerous when frustrated drivers take the risk of overtaking here.

My comments on this proposal set out above relate to:
Traffic - significant health, safety, traffic volume, noise and light pollution
Access - The proposed access to the site is wholly impractical. Accessibility to services are already limited and this proposal would add significant problems. Utility capacity - existing services are at capacity. Flood risk - there are ground water issues for this sloped site - the development will aggravate this. Compatibility with neighbouring use. These proposals are out of scale with this ancient village, pose major intrusion with sound,fumes, light and fumes pollution.

Full text:

I will register my objections to this development in the following order
1)TRAFFIC - volume impact and safety
2)ACCESS
3)ACCESSIBILITY TO SERVICES
4)UTILITIES CAPACITY
5)FLOOD RISK
6)COMPATABILITY FOR NEIGHBOURING USE

Traffic - The site described sits to the west of the A140 Ipswich Road. Although this road is not currently designated at a trunk road it is a very busy arterial road linking Norwich with Ipswich and the coastal ports and westward to the midlands. The proposal, as currently described would significantly increase the volume of traffic (in excess of 600 traffic movements per day and links to other traffic increasing proposals set out in the GNLP would create traffic chaos. It would pose a major safety risk increase both to the village residents seeking access to or egress from the village via Church Road and to through traffic. The road is single carriageway, with a number of speed restrictions through its length and at rush hour the road now becomes gridlocked usually caused by traffic turning into or out of the junction on the A140.

ACCESS - the proposed entry / exit to the site uses the existing (little used farm entrance) the proposal for a ghost island for south bound traffic is wholly unsuitable for such a busy road.
ACCESS TO SERVICES - As a small village there is currently minimal service provision or plans for infrastructure improvement.
UTILITIES CAPACITY -I am advised that the existing sewerage and utilities services are already at maximum capacity.
FLOOD RISK- I am advised that while the flood risk is not great, there are significant issues with surface drainage, the sloping nature of the site will aggravate this problem and will necessitate significant structural work.
COMPATABILITY WITH NEIGHBOURING USE - This proposal is wholly unsuitable to be located in agricultural land adjacent to this ancient compact village. The scale of the proposal would totally dominate the village and the landscape views of approaches to the village. The noise, light and fumes pollution would significantly and negatively impact on the village.

I conclusion I find the proposal as damaging to the whole village and would represent corporate vandalism perpetrated for purely economic reasons.

CONCLUSION - This is the wrong proposal set in the wrong site, there are numerous alternative suitable sites within South Norfolk.

I have lived in the village of Swainsthorpe for over 50 years and have witnessed how the this farmland has been carefully husbanded to produce valuable, healthy crops. This development will constitute nothing less than a rape of the countryside and another step in our nation's inability to feed itself.
Added to this, the inevitable increased congestion on the A140 brought on by the movement of industrial vehicles and associated workforce, which is at times already overwhelmed by traffic, makes this development totally unacceptable.

This site is inappropriate for this development because of traffic, safety and pollution considerations, the likelihood of environmental degradation and its likely impacts on quality of life for the local community.

Full text:

This is an inappropriate use for greenfield land when land has already been earmarked for industrial use elsewhere locally. The increased traffic movements involved will make this stretch of the A140 more dangerous (little mitigation is possible in terms of north-south visibility owing to the terrain) and cause increased pollution. It will cause environmental degradation as a result of the avoidable loss of trees and hedges, and will occupy farmland that we are going to need in future. Brownfield sites should always be used in preference to agricultural land for development of any sort, but particularly for industrial development, which has relatively high undesirable impacts on the communities on which it is imposed, in terms of noise, air and light pollution, among other factors.

The suggestion of industrial buildings in a village designated as "other villages" is monstrous. The village has no infrastructure to support this and it is a gross incursion into rural countryside. The A140 is supposed to be a corridor of movement and we are looking at not just a huge increase in traffic but huge, slow moving agricultural and construction machinery. There are issues with the water course which runs through, noise and light from 24/7 working in season and other pollution issues. Destruction of trees and hedgerow as well as agricultural land. Totally inappropriate site.

Completely inappropriate proposal. Destroying farmland when there are clearly other industrial brownfield sites available locally. Destruction of local village character and environment for sake of cheaper land to develop. 24hour light pollution, noise and environmental pollution impacting local residents and wildlife. I have concerns about disposal of waste from site, e.g. through cleaning of machinery. Large-scale, contemporary buildings completely out of keeping and whole site will destroy views to Grade II* listed church. No amount of landscaping will compensate. Infringement on local bridleway. Significant extra traffic from workers, customers and movement of equipment will cause yet more congestion and pollution.

Retail/industrial sites should be located around the southern and northern bye-passes which were constructed for this and traffic flow purposes.
The site being proposed is isolated and difficult to access and police by the Fire Brigade, Police, Security. There are no local services for the staff to enjoy. There are no pathways from the site to the village or nearby bus stops which will present a danger to staff and pedestrian visitors.
The noise and light pollution will be unacceptable to local residents and the additional traffic will create even more congestion on the already busy A140.

I have lived in Swainsthorpe for 45 years and have been involved at Parish Council, Charity Trust and Church Council level for at least 20 years. Never have I experienced so much opposition in our village to a planning application as we are experiencing with the Ben Burgess proposal to move their retail/industrial business from Trowse to a greenfield site on the edge of our village.
I share the concerns of the residents for the following main reasons:
1. Why should a planning permission be given or even considered for a retail/industrial business on a greenfield site on the edge of two picturesque villages namely Swainsthorpe and Dunston when there are many retail/industrial sites available on or around the southern and northern bye-passes? Surely this is one of the reasons why so much money was spent on the northern bye-pass in particular?
2. The site they are proposing for their business at Swainsthorpe is isolated and some distance from other retail/industrial sites where shared services which include security, policing, fire brigade and local services are easily accessed should there be an emergency. Surely the purpose of keeping retail/trade businesses on large retail/trade parks is so that security, Police and Fire can easily access and patrol.
3.This proposal, if approved, will change forever the beautiful landscape of the southern approaches to Norwich and to Swainsthorpe in particular and cause major disruption to the traffic flow on the already busy A140.
4.There is no justification, other than financial gain by Ben Burgess, to locate their site in Swainsthorpe when many other retail/industrial sites have been made available for this purpose around the southern and northern bye-passes.
5. There is no other access to the site other than by road. Staff could not walk to the bus stop or potential pedestrian customers visit because there is no footpath. This will create a danger to traffic and pedestrians alike.
6. This is a badly thought out plan that would be a blot on the landscape of some beautiful countryside that could be in danger of turning into an industrial site forever.

I support plans that respect our environment and neighbours. The Burgess plan doesn't but appears to stem from greed. Plans for an industrial park with 200 plus vehicles and retail outlet, using the already congested A140 is wrong, especially when the planners have similar sites close by. The site in Swainsthorpe is cheap farm land and will make the shareholders of Ben Burgess enormous profit but at the cost to our village and our quality of life. There are already built up areas in Norfolk; it makes no sense to ruin small hamlets which gives Norfolk its charm.

I would like to see Norfolk aim to protect the environment, reduce pollution and control and manage development, to respect for our environment and our neighbours. The Burgess plan does none of the above but appears to stem from greed. A standalone industrial park with 200 plus vehicles and retail outlet, all lit 24 hours a day, with dozens of vehicle movements hourly on the already congested A140 is wrong, especially when planners have designed and allocated new, modern sites for business and industrial use close by. This site in Swainsthorpe is cheap farm land and will make the shareholders of Ben Burgess enormous profit but this will be at the cost to our village, the local environment, and our quality of life. The impact to the users of the A140 will be enormous, and potentially dangerous, not to mention the impact on the environment and wildlife.

1. Extra pressure on A140 with slow vehicles more regularly using this stretch. This is a very busy stretch of road for most of the day. I live in Swainsthorpe and it can often take between 5-10 minutes to get out of or enter Church road due to the volume of traffic. At busy times traffic can tail back from Newton Flotman, past the junction with Church Road. Any change to the road involving a roundabout would exacerbate this problem. This is proven by the weekend road maintenance that happened on Sunday 18th November. When I tried to access the A140 from Church Road, it took nearly 10 minutes to do this. I managed to get onto the A140 only because another driver let me out as traffic was tailing back as far as the eye could see in the direction of Newton Flotman. It took a further 10 minutes to get through the temporary lights which were positioned where the proposed entrance to this site would be. On returning home, traffic was queued past the entrance to Dunston Hall and it took a futher ten minutes from this point to reach the junction at Swainsthorpe. If a roundabout was put here, causing traffic to stop, the main artery from Ipswich would be severely impaired. Add to this, the increased number of slow moving vehicles along this road as a result of having hem on this site would increase the danger of driving along this stretch.
2. Could the proposer guarantee that farm vehicles will not be stored in other areas around the village? We regularly have 4X4s with long trailers containing farm materials and large tractors being stored in our PRIVATE car park. This has caused damage to curbs and grass verges when they drive over them. This behaviour has continued in spite of requests to farm workers from Ben Burgess to stop. This is anti-social behaviour on private land and is very dangerous when they speed round the area where our children play. My concern is that, if farm vehicles are stored nearby, our private car park will increasingly be used as an overflow car park thus increasing the danger to our children and residents.
3. Aesthetic appearance of the village and environmental damage. This proposal is on a green field site. There are plenty of other brown field sites ripe for development which would not further damage the environment around the village. 4. The site proposed is out of proportion with the size of the village. Swainsthorpe would become a 'tag-on' to this site and this would affect house prices.

This development would overwhelm the village, turning green agricultural land into an industrial site. Swainsthorpe is currently designated for small scale "infill" development only. There would be noise pollution from heavy machinery, engine testing and additional traffic, light pollution from 24/7 security lighting, irreversible detrimental impact on the local environment, a risk of encouraging similar sites nearby, additional traffic, including heavy machinery from a new exit onto an already busy A140, causing traffic chaos and significant danger, no new local jobs(simply relocation from elsewhere) and the loss of a well used existing footpath.

I object strongly about this development. This is farming land and as such should be kept for future generations to use. This site would produce noise, pollution, light pollution not to mention the congestion on the already overburdened A140. I do agree that Ben Burgess need help from the authorities to find a more suitable site where the transport links/roads are more suitable for example on one of the new purpose built industrial estates.

Swainsthorpe is currently designated for small scale "infill" development in the JCS. This development would overwhelm the village, turning green agricultural land into an industrial site. My family home backs on to this proposed development and we certainly do not wish to loose the wildlife that we see on a daily basis to a expanse of car park, concrete buildings,noise pollution from heavy machinery, engine testing and additional traffic, light pollution from 24/7 security lighting, irreversible detrimental impact on the local environment, additional traffic, including heavy machinery from a new exit onto an already busy, congested and accident prone A140.
