Draft Local Plan-Part 2 Site Allocations

GNLP0337

Representation ID: 21877

Received: 12/03/2020

Respondent: Drayton Parish Council

Representation:

Drayton Parish Council does not object to the proposal but wishes to raise concerns on the impact on Drayton. There is no spare capacity in the schools or the doctors surgery in Drayton. Whilst accepting a new school and surgery will be provided as part of any planning approval these facilities will not be provided until the site is substantially developed. The concern is on the detrimental impact on Drayton until these facilities are provided. The Parish Council would like to ensure more robust provision is included within the development so that these facilities are available before 25% of the development is built. The Parish Council would also like to ensure that no vehicular access is granted into the new development area from Felsham Way.

Drayton Parish Council has concerns with the increase in traffic numbers on Reepham Road towards Drayton and Hellesdon from the proposed vehicular access point from the new development. Drayton Parish Council would seek for a left turn only exist to encourage the use of Broadland Northway, the Norwich Western Link and the soon to be delivered dualled A47. Traffic that needed to travel directly into Drayton or Hellesdon wil still be able to do so via the Broadland Northway / Reepham Road roundabout.
