Draft Local Plan-Part 2 Site Allocations

CC16

Representation ID: 21928

Received: 13/03/2020

Respondent: Bidwells

Representation:

Bidwells strongly support the allocation of land adjoining Norwich City Football Club for mixed use
development, including a minimum of 270 homes. The site is considered to be entirely deliverable, and
capable of making a significant contribution towards the need for additional leisure, community, residential,
community, retail and office uses in the Greater Norwich Area during the period to 2038.

The site is allocated in the adopted Joint Core Strategy and has, through the development of Carrow Quay
(Broadland Housing and NR1 (Taylor Wimpey), already made a significant contribution towards housing
delivery in the Greater Norwich area. It has the potential to be developed to provide a range of uses, which
as well as residentially could include a multi purposes Arena, that could be used for, amongst other things,
sport, music and conferencing; helping to achieve a sustainable development.

The site occupies a highly sustainable location within Norwich City Centre due to its proximity to a range
of services and amenities and sustainable modes of transport, notably Norwich Railway Station. It has the
potential to help facilitate the regeneration of the East Norwich area.

whilst future connectivity with the East Norwich area is a key
objective, the development of the site is not dependent on the regeneration of the wider area, as is
demonstrated by the above referenced developments; a fact that should be specifically mentioned in either
the policy or supporting text in order to provide certainty. Failure to do this will potentially delay the delivery
of Site Reference CC16. On this basis, a few minor alterations are proposed to the policy.

The principal change relates to the removal of the need to provide a public transport interchange on site,
together with a public transport strategy for the wider east Norwich strategic regeneration area.

whilst it is acknowledged that
any development will need to demonstrate how it will connect and be accessible by public transport, the
requirement to provide a public transport interchange is considered unnecessary. It will also, depending
on what is required to deliver a public transport interchange, potentially result in the development being
unviable.

The policy also states that any proposal will be required to provide a public transport strategy for the wider
east Norwich strategic regeneration area. As detailed above, whilst the redevelopment of the Norwich East
area is supported, its delivery is completely independent from the development of the land covered by site
allocation CC16.

the requirement to provide a public transport strategy
for the wider Norwich East areas as part of the development of site allocation CC16 would be both
unreasonable and disproportionate.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, to ensure that the development of site allocation CC16 facilitates both
pedestrian and public transport accessibility to the Norwich East area, it is recognised that any proposal
must demonstrate how it would facilitate future links with the adjacent site.

Draft Local Plan-Part 2 Site Allocations

GNLP2143

Representation ID: 22739

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Bidwells

Representation:

On behalf of Mr Graham Payne and family, we strongly support the preferred allocation of GNLP2143, land south of Le Neve Road, Marsham. The site is entirely deliverable, and capable of making a valuable contribution towards satisfying the Councils’ housing needs during the period to 2038.
GNLP2143 has been identified as a preferred allocation for 25-35 dwellings, of which 33% will be affordable. It is recognised in the draft policy that more homes may be accommodated on the site, subject to an acceptable design and layout, as well as infrastructure constraints. The preferred allocation recognises that development is expected to provide access (vehicular and pedestrian) from Le Neve Road, an extension (0.27ha) to the existing cemetery, a design and layout which minimises adverse effects on nearby heritage assets, namely the church to the east, and to safeguard the existing Public Right of Way (PRoW) to the south-east boundary.
In accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework’s (NPPF) definition of ‘deliverable’, the site represents a suitable location for development now, is available immediately, is achievable with a realistic prospect of housing being delivered on the site, and is viable. This is considered in further detail below.

3.37 The cluster of Horsham and Newton St Faith is a sustainable location for growth, benefitting from a range of services and amenities, including a primary school, village hall, local shop and public transport provision.

3.38 As has been demonstrated, the site is suitable, available, achievable and viable, and is deliverable within the first five years of the plan period. As previously recognised, there are no constraints which would affect the suitability of the site for residential development. In addition, this Representation has demonstrated the suitability of the site to accommodate all of the growth allocated to the cluster of Horsham and Newton St Faith (i.e. 50 dwellings), if required, and is capable of meeting the requirements of Policy GNLP0125 . This is particularly relevant given that no alternative sites are identified in Horsham and Newton St Faith as being suitable for development. Accordingly, the foregoing text demonstrates that this specific site is a suitable location for further development, and Abel Homes supports the GNLP’s proposals to allocate the site under Policy GNLP0125 for residential development.

The UEA is a highly sustainable location for growth. Development at the UEA will help support and sustain the long-term forecasted growth of the University Campus, alongside enhancing the UEA’s role as a world class research university. Furthermore, development at the UEA will help to sustain and enhance the important role of the UEA to Norwich’s and the wider UK’s economy, alongside supporting the Norwich to Cambridge tech corridor, as a key part of the Norwich Research Park.
As has been demonstrated, the site is suitable, available, achievable and viable, and is deliverable within the the plan period. As previously recognised, there are no constraints which would affect the suitability of the site for student accommodation and a small element of ancillary university related uses. Accordingly, the foregoing text demonstrates that this specific site is a suitable location for development, and the UEA support the GNLP’s proposals to allocate the site under GNLP0133-E for student accommodation and a small element of ancillary university related uses, subject to the proposed revisions to the policy wording..
