As a young farmer any investment in the main industry of our County must be encouraged. Having farming businesses close to the farms it support make so much sense rather that in the City or industrial areas.
A sensible development along the A140 corridor can only promote our County and Agriculture.

Dear Sirs,

I would like to register my opposition to the proposed development of arable land to light industrial beside Swainsthorpe village.

I manage the farmland around this site and believe that there will be a significant detrimental effect on the lives of many of the people who live in the village and to the area in general.

Yours faithfully

The proposed development is of strategic importance to the agriculture and agri-tech cluster in the area. It is poised to make a significant contribution to the economic impact of the area in terms of new job creation, increased skills and training, and the future growth of the crucial agriculture sector in the greater Norwich (and indeed wider East of England) geographies. It is closely aligned with, and is expected to deliver targets on a number of local, regional and national policies and strategies.

I think we need to encourage the development and sales of state of the art agricultural equipment and the idea of a big sales hub in South Norfolk seems like a good idea but not at the cost of prime agricultural land. Using this land would be like to shooting yourself in the foot. We are short of good farm-able land.

To use this land for an office and sales hub is akin to growing Dingle weed (A Revolutionary Rotational Crop that once grown can be woven into a cloth used to protect the young dingle weed crop).

Absolutely appalling to turn open countryside into an industrial site.
There are enough brown field sites to accommodate this type of facility closer to Norwich.
Another roundabout on the A140 would be ridiculous along with what is going to happen further along toward Long Stratton.
The A140 is already so busy without added lorries, tractors and staff vehicles.
There is no logical reason to site this facility in Swainsthorpe apart from the fact that Ben Burgess have recently bought this land....I wonder why they did???

I believe this development is inappropriate because;
Dangerous junction to A140 and overload of traffic
Wildlife/birdlife :eg loss of habitat for barn owls and skylarks etc.
Hickling Lane at risk of use for tractor trials so ruining it for dog walkers, horse riders and ramblers
Will permanently change nature of area from rural/residential to commercial
Spoil the view on the approach to Norwich from countryside to buildings creating the impression of urban sprawl
Light and noise pollution issues for village
No benefit for the village

Inappropriate site for Industrial development due to amount of traffic which is often at a stand still. Not appropriate for such a small village. Transferring green field site to industry would be a blight on the landscape. All for promoting farming and understand other sites are available so why is a big reputable company doing this!!

Full text:

I was born in the village of Swainsthorpe as were my parents and grandparents. I come from a family of farmers who respect the wonderful life of living in the countryside. I find this development heartbreakingly sad ,this land has been harvested over generations to give food for people and animals. This is not an appropriate site for Industry, other comments supporting this development have stated about promoting farming but I feel this isn't a way forward there must be more industrial, appropriate sites for this business, I suspect it involves money as that's usually the case!. Please think twice Ben Burgess please don't take this green field site for industry. the A140 is extremely busy and Swainsthorpe village is a beautiful English Village which has limited facilities this development would be a blight on this very pretty landscape.

This development would have a huge negative impact on Swainsthorpe village. It would increase the volume of heavy industrial traffic on the A140 and would generate light, noise and emission pollution - in the summer months this could even be through the night.
It would be disastrous to set a precedent of allowing agricultural land along the A140 to be used for industrial development. This could ruin the countryside and agriculture in the area.
There are many more suitable sites for this type of development in the area where the benfits could be gained without such a negative impact.

In summary:
* size, scale and nature not in keeping with the character of the village
* heavily congested A140 and risk of Church Road being used as a bypass
* loss of farmland and wildlife habitat
* disruption and pollution to local residents
* negative impact on local house prices
* exaggerated benefits to local economy
* concern that support comes primarily from those not resident within the local area.

Full text:

Of all the proposed developments to Swainsthorpe this is the most objectionable. The size, scale and nature of the project is not in keeping with the character of the village, and places additional pressure on already exhausted travel routes. The heavily congested A140 will not be aided by slow-moving vehicles and, given the condition of local minor roads, we do not wish to encourage drivers to use Church Road as a cut-through.

Furthermore, the site would dwarf Swainsthorpe, bringing great disruption to a diminutive village and raising genuine concerns about expansion of the site in due course. The present arable farmland provides cultural ecosystem services in addition to wildlife habitat, and the ineluctable blot on the landscape of industrial machinery, noise and pollutants curtails enjoyment of the surrounding area. The employment benefits to the local area have been exaggerated, as this calm environment is particularly popular with retirees and home workers. I have only just moved here from Loddon in order to live somewhere more peaceful and quiet. Had this development been listed on the local authority search, I may not have done so, and would certainly not have done so at the price I paid.

I am dismayed by the number of comments from those who previously lived in the area or indeed perhaps never have, and who are therefore protected from the negative impacts of any upcoming changes. I understand support for the development comes from within the industry, and I appreciate the convenience of having the company headquarters within easy travelling distance, but it is really quite different to commute somewhere occasionally and to live under its shadow.

Inappropriate to develop an industrial facility on this land. Sound, light and air pollution would likely be an issue but paramount concerns are: profound detrimental impact to the beauty and character of the village and this Norfolk landscape from such a development (clearly evidenced by aerial views of existing Ben Burgess facilities) and dangerous precedent this would set; the total impracticability of access to such a facility via the A140, which would exacerbate problems for a road that is frequently heavy congested or even at a stand still. Please do not allow these green fields to be filled with concrete.

Greenfield site should not be used when possible brownfield sites available. Pollution caused, including environmental, light, noise and air is of concern. Swainsthorpe not able to cope with such vast increase of traffic. Catastrophic for wildlife, bat count has not been carried out.

Full text:

The proposal of such a vast industrial site on greenfield land should never have been put forward. It will have such catastrophic consequences, both in terms of the environment, local pollution, including noise, air and also light from security lights at night etc, and of course traffic congestion. The A140 already struggles with the traffic demands in peak times, and this will exacerbate the situation enormously.
Swainsthorpe will not be able to cope with this capacity of new infrastructure, and one would think that this site could only be proposed if all other ones have been exhausted. Just because the site at Hethel, for instance, is perceived as not convienient for Ben Burgess does not mean it shouldn't be considered further. Surely amalgamating all six current sites will be more accessible in the long term and the use of brownfield sites is to be encouraged.

Agriculture is so important to Norfolk. Modern technologies & machinery to aid farming are vital to our rural economy. Companies willing to invest in our Counties main industry's future must be supported. Farming companies need to be in rural areas, this surely makes common,economic and enviromental sense. The A140 that area is in desparate need of investment and development. Agri business's across Norfolk are in rural areas supporting farmers but in South Norfolk there is a real lack of support for the farmers, this development and location would very much be in the interest of Norfolk and the farming community.
