Draft Local Plan-Part 2 Site Allocations

GNLP0311/0595/2060

Representation ID: 20837

Received: 13/03/2020

Respondent: Burgh and Tuttington Parish Council

Representation:

The Burgh and Tuttington Parish Council support the reduced scale of the housing development in Aylsham. We remain concerned about the capacity of the Anglian Water sewage works east of the A140 to accommodate the new developments with the concomitant increased risk of release of untreated sewage into the river Bure. This would have deleterious effects on wildlife, agriculture and communities downstream of the sewage works. A requirement to match new development size with sewage works capacity was set out in Policy 2 VIII of the Aylsham Neighbourhood Plan, which we support.

The Burgh and Tuttington Parish Council wish to comment upon the proposed development at Aylsham for 300 new homes at sites GNLP 0311, 0595 and 2060 west of the A140. We support the reduced scale of the development and also the view of Aylsham Town Council regarding its location. However, we remain concerned about the capacity of the Anglian Water sewage works just east of the A140 which feeds treated waste water into the Bure, one of Norfolk's premier rivers. We would like an assurance that the increase in sewage waste caused by the development will not raise the risk of release of untreated sewage. This could have a deleterious impact on wildlife, agriculture and the communities along downstream reaches of the Bure. There have been problems with waste disposal at previous developments in Aylsham and a requirement to match new development size with sewage works capacity was set out in Policy 2 VIII of the Aylsham Neighbourhood Plan, which we support. This potential problem could become more significant if the option for development of a further 250 homes in Aylsham is taken up
