New, Revised and Small Sites

GNLP2009

Representation ID: 18920

Received: 10/12/2018

Respondent: Felthorpe Parish Council

Representation:

While the council agrees with most of the suitability assessment for the Swannington Lane site, we believe that the Market Attractiveness criteria should be rated as red. It seems unlikely that a site with so few facilities would attract the required 10% premium for rural fringe sites. Mitigation for the other six amber criteria, including site access, local road network, waste water infrastructure and surface water flooding would be costly, rendering this site economically unviable. We therefore request that this site is not progressed further and is excluded from the Greater Norwich Plan.

Regarding the sites suggested for development in the parish of Felthorpe, Felthorpe Parish Council has the following comments to make:

General

Felthorpe Parish Council does not believe that Felthorpe is suitable for growth due to its lack of facilities. The village has no shop, no gas supply, no street lighting, narrow, uneven pavements, minimal employment and only two buses per day into Norwich. We believe that the majority of our parishioners support this view and enjoy a quieter, rural life.

The village already suffers from significant rat-running with peak hours traffic exceeding safe capacity of the narrow roads. Adding more traffic from a additional housing would add to these problems. Given the significant over-supply of land included in this consultation, we request that the many more suitable sites with better facilities are selected ahead of those in Felthorpe.

Brands Lane
The council agrees with the suitability assessment that the Brands Lane site is unsuitable for development due to its lack of access to facilities. We request that this site is not progressed further and is excluded from the Greater Norwich Plan.

Swannington Lane
