Draft Local Plan-Part 2 Site Allocations

GNLP3013

Representation ID: 20722

Received: 11/03/2020

Respondent: Wymondham Heritage Society

Representation:

Access onto the already congested Tuttles Lane. Development is approved on the adjacent old rugby club land. Outside the settlement boundary. Is 50 houses the total housing on this site? The development would encroach upon and erode the natural landscape across Tuttles Lane which should remain in tact. Lack of infrastructure - hospital, doctors, dentists, schools.

Detrimental to the proximity of Grade II listed Gonville Hall, increase in traffic, pollution and light pollution. Permission for 335 houses nearby. The entry into Wymondham from the south east has already been irrevocably comprised. We agree that this site should not be considered for further development which would be totally unacceptable.

Far too much development already in this area. 2019/0184 - land north of Carpenters Barn has recently been refused. This would exacerbate the urban sprawl and contribute to landscape harm in Norwich Common. Does not accord with the WAAP, to maintain the open land between Wymondham and Hethersett, loss of habitat for wildlife and loss of open spaces.

We are concerned that the agents for the landowners have attempted to increase the number of houses on this site from 50 to 100 and have prepared plans and representation to substantiate this. This is a sensitive elevated area with wide sweeping views. There are excellent views of the Abbey from Bradmans Lane which brings the 'remaining field enclosure' into question, development of which would destroy the wide sweeping landscape views from this elevated site. The new proposals will effectively destroy any views of the Abbey contrary to the comments of the agents. This particular landowner originally proposed 400 houses on this site which attracted many objections. WAAP Environment Objective : "....................conserving the historic landscape setting of the town and abbey ................" The site is in the Conservation Area, is close to the Tiffey river valley and there are three County Wildlife Sites nearby. WAAP Environment Objective 7.3. "........ large scale arable farmland which is crossed by numerous rural lanes ...the woodland blocks ae mostly deciduous and some of these .... are ancient woodlands ... the overall character of the area is rural ... the valley floor is in pastoral use...the valley is mostly open in character...there are pockets of small valley-side woods ...the predominant land use is arable farmland...". Development Management 4.5 Landscape Character and River Valleys : "All development should respect, conserve and where possible enhance the landscape character of its immediate and wider environment. Development proposals that would cause significant adverse impact on the distinctive landscape characteristics of an area will be refused." There is a National Trust covenant in existence to protect the Cavick estate and the countryside to the west. This development will detrimentally impact upon the rural character of the river valley landscape and narrow lanes in the area. Wymondham does not have the capacity for this further development i.e. doctors, dentists, schools, roads and hospitals. New housing would not sit well with the existing older properties, particularly in the Cavick area. Wildlife would also be severely affected and pollution including light pollution would also be detrimental. We note "submission of a masterplan that does not prevent further development on the remaining field enclosure beyond the plan period of 2038" which leaves the area open to further development.
~ There is a National Trust restrictive covenant in place to protect the Cavick Estate and the valley to the west.
~ We would ask that SNC takes note of the constraints in regard to GNLP0354 when determining the final Plan. We do not agree that this area of Wymondham offers scope to accommodate some of the contingency housing referred to in the draft Plan.
~ "To the west of the town, the River Tiffey Valley remains a largely intact rural landscape. Likewise to the south-west, undeveloped views remain of the Abbey from a considerable distance."
~ We are concerned that there is a development contingency of 1,000 dwellings for Wymondham which is excessive.
