GNLP Regulation 18 Draft Consultation – Starston Parish Council response

The Parish Council unanimously supported policy 7.5 in principle and for the number of additional houses to be linked to “made” Neighbourhood Plans, rather than limited to 3.

After a lengthy discussion, points we would like planners to take into consideration in terms of the proposed housing growth in Harleston, the market town adjacent to Starston village, and its impact on neighbouring village communities include:-

- Housing density & road widths in new housing developments - is the density of housing too high and roads too narrow on the new housing estate near Harleston Industrial Estate, such that this model should not be repeated for additional housing developments?
- Town infrastructure to support new housing developments – is there sufficient for the number of new homes proposed eg rain water drainage; sewage treatment?
- Impact of increased traffic on the rural/single track roads around Harleston from the increased number of dwellings in Harleston. From a planning perspective, the expectation may be for traffic to use the A143/A140, but in fact significant additional traffic comes through Starston from Harleston to join the A140 at the Pulham or Morningthorpe roundabouts.
