This development will destroy the small village of swainsthorpe, we do not need it. The planners have given no thought to the villagers, the site is larger than the whole village itself.

I think an industrial business is inappropriate for this location adjoining this small rural village, and taking away productive arable farming land .Visually the landscape will be degraded.and habitats destroyed for wild life. There will be added pollution and noise.
The A140 is already over burdened with traffic, making entering and leaving it extremely difficult., and this large proposal will increase risks associated with this. There must be more appropriate existing sites., adjacent to existing industrial areas.

While I understand the need for Ben Burgess to move from their present site, this proposal seems unnecessarily obtrusive on an unspoilt rural landscape and not to be within the GNLP obligation to 'promote and enhance our many environmental assets'. There are alternative sites within GNLP for industrial and commercial development which would take this proposal with much less disturbance to rural qualities of life and to traffic flows - already an issue on the A140.

My primary objection is the unsuitability of this proposed site given its rural location.
It involves destruction of significant amounts of countryside used for agriculture for dozens of generations. This development would dwarf the village.
The A140 is an extremely busy single carriageway road which has seen a massive increase in traffic in the last few years. The nature of this proposal will see a further increase in traffic in terms of volume of cars and large vehicles using the site. The result would render the A140 gridlocked, plus noise, fumes and light pollution as well as potential chemical spillage.

This is an unnecessary development. The village and surrounding area is rural, to put a large industrial site in the middle of this will destroy any quality of life with an increase of noise, pollution and traffic. Not to mention being an ugly blight not the landscape. It is not generating new jobs, as it is simply moving from one site to another. The only people who will benefit will be Ben Burgess at the expense of the local people.

The A140 is already highly congested at peak times and this additional burden will make a bad situation even worse.

Me and my friend moved into Swainsthorpe around two weeks ago, as a lovely quiet, countryside place to live. The proposed developments will ruin the charm of the place and reduce the value of the properties significantly, as well as producing noise pollution and a lot more traffic through the village.

Village too small to sustain the number of dwellings and development.
No medical centre, school, local shop so more pressure on current services
Lack of local facilities will increase car use to other local amenities
causing environmental damage.
Road inadequate for construction traffic and subsequent service lorries.
There are no local jobs so increased traffic on the existing road network
ie busy A140.
Encroaches farm land which is needed to ensure the country can feed itself
(especially in the current political climate)
In an increasingly urbanised county brownfield sites should be explored as
Green Space is essential for general well-being

Full text:

The village is too small to sustain the number of dwellings and amount of
development as outlined. The village itself does not have the
infrastructure to support additional houses as there is no medical centre,
school, local shop, pub etc. An increased population will put more pressure
on current services ie the doctor's in Mulbarton and lack of local
facilities means that there will be an increase in car use to access other
local amenities, with resulting environmental damage. There is one main
road through the village and this is inadequate for construction traffic
and subsequent service lorries which will need to access the area. There
are no local jobs so an increased population will inevitably result in
increased traffic on the existing road network including the busy A140
junction which is already hazardous to both through A140 traffic and
joining traffic entering or leaving the village. The proposed development
encroaches on farm land and arable land is needed to ensure the country can
feed itself (especially in the current political climate) so should be
retained where possible. Finally, the village is a quiet, tranquil oasis in
what is becoming and increasingly urbanised county. Brownfield sites
should be urgently explored as Green Space is essential for general
well-being and should be fiercely protected.

Swainsthorpe is a small, safe, rural village and people who live here chose to do so on that basis. The building of a large industrial unit will fundamentally change the nature of the village. There will be in increase in light and noise pollution and a significant increase in traffic both through the village and on the A140 which is already at more than capacity during the rush hours especially. There must be other sites around the city which offer better access and with less impact on local people.

I strongly object the proposed Ben Burgess site being located centrally in the small village of Swainsthorpe. Firstly, public safety would be compromised by articulated lorries, machinery and heavy duty vehicles constantly using the lanes. If approved this would be a permanent decision and would totally change the environment and doesn't align to the policy of a small village outlined in legislation. The size of site is too big which will have a detrimental effect on village life / the surrounding local community for simply a commercial ran site.

Swainsthorpe is a small rural village a proposal of this magnitude is not in keeping with the village. This would be better suited where there is infrastructure already in place such as a designated industrial or brownfield site.
The fast moving Al40 would become clogged with slow moving large farm machines, over 120 employees visitors etc , impacting on this vital route to and from South Norfolk. Impact on life for residents, an eyesore on beautiful agricultural land! Noise, Air, Light pollution 24/7 , impact on wildlife, and destroying the tranquility of our village.

I object to this site because I do not agree to using good quality farmland/pasture/green site for commercial development which could be placed on a brown field site. It will be a very noticeable and spoiling to the outlook of a main artery to the beautiful city of Norwich. No doubt it will cause traffic problems with so many cars lorries and machinery visiting the site.

I strongly disagree with this application due to the building using a green site, also the amount of traffic that will use this development ie the offices and delivery trucks and lorries. This road cannot cope with the traffic at the moment let alone tractors and heavy goods vehicles using this as well. This is a very dangerous road, and this development will make it much worse. There are many brown sites that could be used so why use green fields.

GNLP0604R - This proposal for large industrial development gives cause for concern re: noise, light, pollution and traffic congestion in both the village and the A140. It would seem to have detrimental effects on native surrounding and not have any benefits to the community.

The JCS classification of Swainsthorpe as an 'other village' - having very limited facilities means that people need to use cars more to get to work, school, appointments, shops.

The number of possible new houses creating great pressure on for example GP Surgery gives rise for concern. Adjacent parish of Mulbarton - large housing site proposals.

I am writing to object to three submissions lodged that directly impact the village. GNLP0604R. Ben Burgess - 25 houses off church view and GNLP 0191R. The impact on the village off traffic using Church Road, the traffic onto the Ben Burgess head quarters coming directly by the stoke holy cross turning, in the peak time its already impossible to get out our own drive let alone get onto A140. It is already used as a rat run from Mulbarton area to turn right you have to go to the Stoke turning and turn round to get to Long Stratton to the doctors and dentists etc. I am strongly opposed to these submission. I believe there are better sites for Ben Burgess HQ team on the A140. If you let more large vehicles out onto it you are increasing the risk of there being a very serious accidents, which could result in a major hold up and death.

I have been shut out by your website and would like to object to the above 3 proposals.

On the grounds that Swainsthorpe does not need any major development, there are lack of facilities here to justify such development, the road network including the A140 is not substantial enough to sustain such a development and we are surrounded by beautiful green fields which is why we live here, such a development would ruin that. It would also have a massive detrimental effect on the sale prices of properties in the area.
