GNLP2184

Representation ID: 17715

Received: 04/12/2018

Respondent: Swannington with Alderford and Little Witchingham Parish Council

Representation:

Poor road access to both East and West

No possibility for footpaths

Lack of access to services and remote from Great Witchingham (Lenwade)

Impact on Alderford a small hamlet with important listed properties

The brown field site only exists due to the historical and influential nature of the former Bernard Matthews company and no development would now be considered

Full text:

Access - the only route eastwards is on Hall Road, a narrow lane with passing places and a 7.5t weight limit. There are no footpaths on either Hall Road (East) nor Hall Road (West) and Porters Lane and no possibility of providing them. Hall Road (East) would not be able to cope with the traffic generated by the development. Access via Porters Lane leads to the A1067 junction which is already overloaded and dangerous.
Services - there is no accessibility to core services and the site is remote from Lenwade.
Alderford, the parish in which most of the development would fall is a small rural hamlet with important listed properties which would be swamped by such a development. The proposed site is well outside any previously considered housing development area.
The historic and influential nature of the former Bernard Matthews company is the only reason why any development was permitted on the site: no development such as this would be considered now.
