It is clear from the evidence provided that extending the SB will have substantial merit without any material harm to the area and ecological considerations on a site which is of no productive use .

It is therefore requested that the proposed bid is looked upon favourably and the SB extended accordingly.

In connection with, and response to, the above and Para 5.83 of the GNLP consultation exercise(see attached GNLP assessment)

It was encouraging to note that the site could be considered as an extension to the village Settlement Boundary (SB) subject to Ecological considerations.

To alleviate concerns the attached Ecological Assessment (EA) has been carried out in conjunction with a sketch layout (which is also attached).The EA confirms that the potential development of this site has no material impact on habitat interests and no protected t trees will be affected (See attached TPO 2001 01 ) on the northern border of the site.

The Sketch Plan indicates that a varied mix of housing ranging from 2 bed to 4 bed dwellings is possible.

Taking into account highway considerations re the larger land bid site GNLP 1031 , therefore this issue has been considered with regard to GNLP 2005; Canham Cosulting Ltd have assessed the sites potential from a highway perspective and come to the conclusion that the development of the site will comply with highway requirements and highway safety (see statement attached).

The extension to the SB in this location will help to reinvigorate the village , helping the local rural economy both during construction on a small site by small/medium local builders (JW Munnings who own the site) and thereafter by future occupancy will help in terms of promoting sustainability. Any development will also include provision of Electric Car Charging Points to further assist sustainability. All these factors are advocated by Central Govt through the revised NPPF.
