Draft Local Plan-Part 2 Site Allocations

GNLP0332R

Representation ID: 22040

Received: 15/03/2020

Respondent: Norwich City Community Sports Foundation

Representation:

Norwich City Sports Community Foundation and The Nest have developed a brand-new state-of-the-art community hub at Horsford (The NEST) directly adjacent to the proposed sites for development (GNLP0332R and GNLP0334R).
We firmly believe in the need for local services, facilities and infrastructure projects to be built alongside housing developments to support communities. The Nest Community Hub has gained investment of over £6.2million to build new community facilities that includes residential bunk boxes, high quality grass football pitches, 3G artificial pitch, multi-use classrooms / fitness spaces, IT suite, café, changing rooms and a disability changing places. The Foundation also continues to investigate further opportunities to encourage the local community to participate in health and wellbeing activities for all age groups and abilities addressing local issues and need.

The Foundation has been in discussions with the adjacent landowners with a view to working in partnership to expand and enhance the recreational community open space facilities on adjacent land. Development of these sites would enable the Nest to provide more activities, link with local schools and increase access to the Nest for the residents of Hellesdon and other areas. The Nest are keen to see improved footpaths and cycleway links provided to the Community Hub alongside working with local agencies to provide other essential services.

We are therefore disappointed to note that the draft local plan Regulation 18 Stage C has identified the sites as ‘unreasonable’. In our view, the Local Plan should be modified to include sites GNLP0332R and GNLP0334R as preferred allocations for development.
