3. Broadland

3.1. Acle

Settlement Summary

Acle is identified as a Key Service Centre in the JCS. It has a range of services and facilities, including a secondary school, a primary school, a small range of shops, a library and bus/rail links to Norwich and Great Yarmouth. There is also some local employment and connections to strategic employment options.

There are four current allocations, two for residential (AC1 and ACLl4), one for employment (ACL3) and one for mixed uses (ACL2) providing for a total of approximately 170 dwellings. There is also a Neighbourhood Plan, though no allocations are included.

Nine sites have put forward for consideration for future development through the GNLP, eight for residential uses and one for mixed use development.

The majority of land to the west of the town is high quality grade 1 or 2 agricultural land. Sites GNLP 0384, 1049, 0378, 0427, 0417, 0421, 0456 and 1022 are on high quality agricultural land, while site 0007 is on lower quality grade 4 agricultural land. The Broads Authority area lies to the east of the town with consequent landscape, environmental and ecological considerations for proposed sites close to the Broads. Damgate Marshes & Decoy Carr SSSIs are immediately south-east of the town, the wider Broads SAC/SPA is close by. As a consequence, there are significant areas of flood risk around the eastern half of the town particularly affecting sites 0007 and 0378. Site 0427 is particularly constrained due to access and noise issues from the A47 and the Acle slip road, which is also likely to affect market attractiveness.

The A47 dual carriageway and the railway separate sites 1022, 0417, 0421, 0450, 0007 from the main services located to their north in the centre of the village. Therefore, development south of the A47 and the railway would be likely to generate additional car journeys, as opposed to sites to the north which have access to services within walking distance. In addition, the sites to the south would have a more negative impact on townscape and the form and character of the settlement. Another consideration is noise. Sites south of and close to the A47 and the railway might require noise mitigation measures. Other highway constraints, such as lack of footpaths, apply to sites to the south of the village.

To the north, site 0384 is some distance beyond the existing built up area of the village, therefore it is less sympathetic to the character and form of the settlement in comparison to other sites such as 1049. Site 1049 is however significantly constrained by access issues.

In terms of utilities capacity, sewerage infrastructure upgrades may be required to serve proposed growth. In addition, the water recycling centre has major capacity constraints mainly affecting sites 0378, 0384, 0417 and 0421.

If Acle is identified for further growth, careful consideration should be given to landscape sensitivities, the presence of high quality agricultural land, flood risk, and impacts on the Broads. In combination, these issues may constrain future development capacity at Acle. If further sites for development are required, the most suitable locations would be to the north of the village, though there are constraints associated with submitted sites.

3.2. Attlebridge

Settlement Summary

Attlebridge is classified as a Smaller Rural Community in the JCS. Its only facility is a village hall. One site has been proposed in the parish: GNLP0460 (6ha) which is between Taverham and Attlebridge and does not relate well to either built-up area. It contains a small area at risk of surface water flooding which could be avoided. It is adjacent to a County Wildlife Site and is close to the River Wensum SSSI. Most importantly, remoteness from services limits its suitability for development.

3.3. Aylsham

Settlement Summary

Aylsham, identified as a main town in the JCS, is the largest market town in Broadland, providing a focus for jobs, services and housing for the surrounding area.

Aylsham is a compact town centred on its market place. A large part of Aylsham has conservation area status. Its development boundary has been drawn tightly around the built area to maintain the open countryside which forms the town's setting. There are currently four sites allocated for development in the town, with two sites for housing and community facilities having planning permission. AYL2 will provide approximately 300 dwellings plus the opportunity for secondary school expansion. AYL1 will provide approximately 250 dwellings, a football club and associated facilities. AYL3 and AYL4 are allocated for employment uses. When the allocations are completed they will be treated as being within the settlement limit.

Five additional sites have been put forward for consideration for future development through the GNLP.

  • GNLP0336 (Land next to River Bure) is a 21.34 ha greenfield site to the north-east of the town proposed for housing and open space. It is adjacent to an existing commitment, and is therefore considered to be sympathetic to the character of the area. Parts of the site are at risk of fluvial and surface water flooding. There are TPOs in the north-west of the site and it is of importance for biodiversity. Part of the site is higher quality grade 2 agricultural land, however, the majority of the site is lower quality grade 3 agricultural land. The sewage works is approximately 330 metres to the south-east.
  • GNLP0595, on the south side of Burgh Road, is a greenfield site slightly beyond the development boundary proposed for housing which has previously been considered in combination with site 0311 (see below). Considered in isolation, the site would not be sympathetic to the character of the area. It is within 400 metre buffer of grade II listed buildings and is approximately 350 metres from the sewage works. The site is on high quality grade 2 agricultural land.
  • GNLP0311 (Land to the south of Burgh Road) is an 8.6 ha. greenfield site proposed for housing and open space uses adjacent to the built up area, which has been previously considered in combination with site 0595. Together, the two sites are considered to be sympathetic to the character of the area. The site fronts onto Burgh Road which would be likely to require some improvements if development were to take place, including footway improvements from Angel House to the A140. Significant improvements may be required to the A140 junction and good walking and cycling links to town centre would be required to encourage sustainable travel. The site is within the 400m buffer of a grade II listed building and investigation would be required of the historic record relevant to the site. Part of the north of the site is at high risk of surface water flooding. The site is on high quality grade 2 agricultural land.
  • GNLP0287 (Land north of Marriotts Way) is a 12.85 ha site proposed for housing and open space on greenfield land adjacent to the built up area to the west of the town. Access would probably need to be gained through the neighbouring allocation. Small parts of the site area could be affected by surface water flooding. The site is on high quality grade 2 agricultural land.
  • GNLP0596 (Land at Norwich Road) is an 11.95 ha. greenfield site to the south and east of the built up area of the town proposed for housing use. The main access would most likely be off Norwich Road with possibly a secondary access to the Buxton Road. It is classified as grade 2 agricultural land. The site could have an effect on the setting of a Grade II farmhouse to the east.

Depending on the amount of growth identified for Aylsham through the GNLP, there is a choice of sites with development potential. However, waste water disposal issues have previously been identified as having the potential to constrain further large scale growth at Aylsham as it is located close to internationally designated wildlife habitats in the Broads. Recent work with the Environment Agency and Anglian Water in connection with planning permissions and allocations in Aylsham has shown that bespoke solutions for water management are suitable for the current amount of commitment, but the capacity for growth could be limited. The presence of substantial amounts of high quality grade 2 agricultural land is a potential constraint for the submitted sites. The sites all have access to services, with 0311 benefitting from being closest to the town centre.

3.4. Beighton

Settlement Summary

Beighton is classified as a Smaller Rural Community in the JCS. One site has been proposed in the village: GNLP0449 (2.1ha) is adjacent to existing dwellings on Carn Close. The site is on grade 2 agricultural land; otherwise it has few constraints. However, remoteness from services limits its suitability for development.

3.5. Blofield

Settlement Summary

Blofield is identified as a key service centre in the JCS. The parish includes the villages of Blofield and Blofield Heath, bisected by the A47 dual carriageway. Blofield is a large village with a reasonable range of facilities; but, for example, secondary school children typically attend Thorpe St Andrew which is on the edge of Norwich.

Existing allocations are BLO1 north of the Yarmouth Road for mixed use with 175 homes, BLO2 south of Yarmouth Road for 22 homes, BLO3 at Wyngates for 64 homes, and BLO4 north of Lingwood Road for 75 homes.

Three additional sites (GNLP0082, 0252, and 0508) have been put forward for consideration for future development in Blofield. The village is surrounded by high quality agricultural land, with sites GNLP0082 and 0252 having Grade 2 status, whereas GNLP0508 is a small brownfield site adjacent to the A47. GNLP0252 and 0508 benefit from being on the western side of Blofield, and so have better access to the main A47 junction. A consideration for GNLP0252 is that it extends southwards towards the Witton Run, presenting ecological and landscape constraints, as well as eroding the strategic gap in the built edge of Blofield from Brundall. There are also landscape and townscape considerations associated with GNLP0082 in extending the built edge of the village eastwards along the Lingwood Road.

Should further development be concluded as necessary in Blofield, subject to the constraints identified above, there are likely to be suitable options. GNLP0508 is perhaps best considered as a small addition to existing allocation BLO1 on the north side of the Yarmouth Road. GNLP0082 at 4.85 ha and GNLP0252 at 4.53 ha are more substantial sites, which, subject to addressing constraints, would likely be suitable at least in part. However, a constraint on further large-scale development is that the Yarmouth Road / Cucumber Lane / A47 roundabout is at or near to capacity.

3.6. Blofield Heath

Settlement Summary

Blofield Heath is classified as a service village in the JCS. There is one housing allocation, BLO5 north of Blofield Corner Road, which has outline permission for up to 36 dwellings (reference 20140968).

Four sites have been submitted through the Call for Sites process, these are GNLP0099 at 2.85 ha, GNLP0288 at 1.43 ha, GNLP0300 at 0.78 ha, and GNLP1048 at 4.18 ha. GNLP0288, GNLP0300, and GNLP1048 are greenfield sites in an area of mainly Grade 2 agricultural land, and GNLP0099 is currently a landscape nursery that includes greenhouse buildings. GNLP0288 already benefits from outline permission for 24 homes (reference 20131655). Of the remaining three, GNLP1048 has the best relationship to the existing built edge at the centre of the village and has a potential access off Woodbastwick Road. GNLP0300 to the west of the village is less well-related to the existing built form and GNLP0099 clearly separated to the south of Blofield Heath.

if it is concluded that Blofield Heath is identified as a location for additional housing, sites closest to the existing edge of the village and with the best vehicular access considered likley to be preferable.

3.7. Brundall

Settlement Summary

Brundall is identified as a Key Service Centre in the JCS. The current allocation for 150 homes (BRU1, application 20121638) is being built out, as is the Mallards development for approximately 50 homes off the Strumpshaw Road.

Six sites have been promoted through the GNLP.

Sites GNLP0254 and 0325 at 6.62 ha and 8.86 ha respectively have been promoted to the north of Berryfields. These two sites are well-situated in relation to the junction with the A47, but constraints to consider are proximity to the Witton Run steam and maintaining a meaningful strategic gap to the built edge of Blofield. A third site GNLP0436, which is existing allocation BRU2 for recreational open space, has similar implications for impact on the Witton Run. To the west of the village two sites have been promoted. GNLP0295 is a 12.23 ha site that would be most likely be a continuation of the recent 150-home allocation and GNLP0375 is a 8.91 ha site that is potentially accessed from Postwick Lane Road and possibly Holmesdale Road. Both GNLP0295 and GNLP0375 have similar constraints, to do with vehicular access into the site and parts of the sites are at the periphery of a walkable distance to most services and facilities in the village. To the south-east of the village, GNLP0352 is a 14.67 ha site where there are flood risk issues to consider, as well as access, townscape and landscape matters.

Should further development be concluded to be necessary in Brundall, there are a range of site options, subject to dealing with issues of site access, proximity to services in the village, as well as landscape and townscape impacts. Generally, sites with good access to Cucumber Lane, and consequently to the junction with the A47, are preferable. The A47 / Cucumber Lane roundabout is though at or near capacity, thereby representing a constraint on further large scale development. Other constraints are the ecological and landscape consequences of encroaching into the Witton Run for sites GNLP0254, GNLP0352, or GNLP0436.

Buxton with Lamas

Settlement Summary

Buxton with Lamas is classified as Service Village in the JCS, with services including a, village hall, school and shop. The main area of development within the parish lies between Brook Street in the west and the Bure Valley railway line to the north east. In addition, there are consolidated groups of development centred on the Mill and river crossing a Lamas and at Buxton Heath. Former RAF Coltishall is partly in the east of the parish, though it is mainly in Badersfield in Scottow parish.

There is an existing allocation BUX1 adjacent to the settlement to its north-west for approximately 20 dwellings in the Site Allocations DPD.

Four sites have been submitted for the consideration of future development through the GNLP.

A large proportion of the land around the village is high quality agricultural land, grade 1 and 2 affecting sites 0297 and 0294 which if developed would reduce the best and most versatile agricultural land. In terms of utilities capacity sewerage infrastructure upgrades may be required to serve all of the proposed sites.

Sites 0297 and 0387 are adjacent to the settlement limit and relate reasonably well to the form and character of the village, and have access to its services. Site 0294 is located to the east of Lamas on the other side of the River Bure. It has access to some services in Badersfield and the scale of development proposed (720 dwellings) could support additional services. Site 0601 is south of Buxton and has some access to services, though footpath improvements would be required.

In conclusion, if Buxton with Lamas is identified for further growth, a choice of sites is available for small scale growth, provided that on site constraints can be addressed. If the strategy identifies the need for strategic scales of growth in the area, possibly in conjunction with growth in neighbouring Scottow parish, site GNLP0294 offers a potential site. However, a number of on-site constraints would need to be addressed.

1.8. Cantley

Settlement Summary

The JCS classifies Cantley as an Other Village. It contains a primary school, village hall, pub and some local employment at the sugar factory. The village abuts the Broads Authority executive area on three sides, therefore landscape issues are important and some areas are at risk of fluvial or surface water flooding. Development may need to mitigate any impact on the SAC/SPA/Ramsar/SSSI.

One site has been promoted: GNLP0281 (0.8ha) to the east of the village and north of the sugar factory. The site contains a small area at risk of surface water flooding which could be avoided. It is shown with access down Grange Road, but the submission states an alternative access could be made from Peregrine Close. The site's proximity to the sugar factory limits its suitability for residential development.

To conclude, if Cantley is identified as a suitable location for development, consideration may need to be given to seeking further sites if highways constraints on the proposed site cannot be addressed.

3.9. Cawston

Settlement Summary

The JCS classifies Cawston as a Service Village. It contains a primary school, village hall, shop, pub, some local employment and a GP. A recent housing allocation has not yet been subject to a planning application.

Three sites have been promoted in Cawston – ranging from 0.4ha to 16ha. The village is surrounded by class 2 agricultural land and is sandwiched between two SSSIs and adjacent to Marriotts Way CWS. In the event of any site being developed, mitigation measures are likely to be required to limit the impact of development on nearby SSSIs. The village also contains a large conservation area containing several listed buildings and a large group TPO.

GNLP0126-A (0.4ha) and GNLP0126-B (1.1ha) are proposed for mixed use residential and commercial development, and the sites are well related to existing development for these proposed uses. Neither site is particularly constrained other than being adjacent to the group TPO and the potential loss of the best and most versatile agricultural land.

GNLP0293 (16ha) contains the recent housing allocation (CAW2) and is proposed for further housing and a scout hut. If developed in its entirety, this site would be large in comparison with the village but might not be large enough to contribute significant new service provision. A reduced site could provide further housing to wrap around the recent allocation. The entire site contains some areas at risk of surface water flooding but these could be avoided. The northern boundary of the site abuts the Marriotts Way CWS, which may require some mitigation, but also could contribute some related enhancement to the footpath.

To conclude, if Cawston is identified for further development, GNLP0126-A and –B could provide options for small-scale housing and employment; alternatively, GNLP0293 could provide housing at a larger scale if this is considered appropriate.

3.10. Coltishall & Horstead

Settlement Summary

Coltishall & Horstead is classified as Service Village in the JCS. Part of the parishes are a conservation area based on the Bure river and valley, which has environmentally sensitive habitats and landscapes. Therefore water quality in the River Bure and visual impacts of development on the landscape need to be considered. Parts of the villages are in the Broads Authority area, covered by a separate local plan prepared by the Broads Authority.

There are two current housing allocations (COL1 and COL2) providing for a total of approximately 50 dwellings in total.

Three greenfield sites have been put forward for consideration for future residential development through the GNLP.

Both GNLP0388 and 0265 are medium scale sites on the edge of the built up area of Coltishall, with good access to services and limited constraints, though the location of the latter next to the former scrapyard (allocation COL2) and the possibility of filled ground on site may require further investigation and mitigation measures.

GNLP1056, a 0.46 ha site on Buxton Road to the west of Horstead, is severely constrained by its remoteness from services in Horstead and Coltishall, site access considerations and landscape issues.

In conclusion, if Coltishall and Horstead is identified for further growth, sites GNLP0388 and 0265 provide potential development options.

3.12. Drayton

Settlement Summary

Drayton is classified in the JCS as part of the Norwich urban area. In addition to access to the wider Norwich area, it has a good range of local services mainly concentrated in the village centre located around the junctions of Drayton High Road with School Road and Costessey Lane. It is situated on the A1067 radial road leading out from Norwich with the NDR to the north. Minor valleys converge on the River Wensum which is designated as a Special Area of Conservation and a Site of Special Scientific Interest and an area of Landscape Value. Part of Thorpe Marriott is in Drayton. Two county wildlife sites, Canham's Hill and Drayton Woods, provide a landscape gap between Drayton and Hellesdon to the east and between Drayton and Horsford to the north. Further development may require upgrades to the sewerage network which is operating close to capacity.

Eight sites have been put forward for consideration through the GNLP:

  • GNLP0222 (Reepham Road/ north of the NDR). The site is mostly in Felthorpe and proposed for a mix of uses. It is remote from services and housing. In addition, there is an abattoir and a biomass power station within 200-300m of the western site boundary. The site partially overlaps site 0465 and both straddle the parish boundary.
  • GNLP0270 (Taverham Road and Costessey Lane) is a site of 3.15ha. It is well related to services but is constrained by the capacity of local roads and lack of footpath provision, flood risk on part of the site and being adjacent to Marriott's Way County Wildlife Site, and the Wensum Special Area of Conservation and SSSI.
  • GNLP0271 (off Drayton High Road) is a site of 3.04ha, well related to services. Potential constraints include encroachment into the Wensum valley, tree belts, proximity to listed buildings and a scheduled ancient monument.
  • GNLP0289 (Behel Care Services, Drayton High Road) is a 2ha site proposed for redevelopment from care services to residential. Constraints are limited but potential impact on the adjacent Drayton Woods County Wildlife would need to be mitigated.
  • GNLP0290 (Drayton High Road) is a 1.01ha site adjacent to the built-up area of Hellesdon. Constraints include its location entirely within Drayton Woods, a County Wildlife Site and difficulties creating suitable access.
  • GNLP0301 (Hall Lane and Drayton Lane) is a 9.19ha site. The site does not relate well to any settlement and is, therefore, unsympathetic to the form and character of the village. Poor access is a constraint. The site is adjacent to a large block of sites in Horsford parish.
  • GNLP 0302 is an isolated site almost entirely in Horsford parish and is discussed under that parish.
  • GNLP0329 (Bradshaw Road/Reepham Road) is a 4.95ha site. The site appears to be landlocked, accessed only by a small track off Reepham Road. Constraints include this lack of access, remoteness from services, an adjacent County Wildlife Site, and surface water flooding
  • GNLP0465 (Reepham Road/NDR) is a 5.04ha site proposed for petrol station and services is off Reepham Road and adjacent to a roundabout on the NDR. Constraints include an adjacent registered common land and two county wildlife sites. The site partially overlaps site 0222 and both straddle the parish boundary.

In conclusion, most of the sites proposed in Drayton have significant constraints and/or are poorly related to the built form. If Drayton is considered suitable for further residential development choices are limited. Site GNLP0271 may be better located in terms of the form and character of the area and access to services in comparison to the other sites, subject to overcoming servicing constraints.

3.14. Foulsham

Settlement Summary

The JCS classifies Foulsham as a Service Village; services include a primary school, village hall, pub, shop and some local employment. In the current local plan, recent allocations were made for an employment area (FOU2) and a small housing allocation (FOU1) which has planning permission.

Four sites have been promoted in Foulsham ranging from 0.5ha to 2ha. Some relate better to the existing village than others. The village has areas at risk of fluvial and surface water flooding. The historic core of Foulsham has many listed buildings, consolidated into a conservation area. Other constraints include CWS to the east and the west of the village and SSSIs further away.

GNLP0607 (0.8ha) is proposed for housing. It is separated from the residential heart of the village, but is adjacent to existing employment opportunities and the new employment allocation. There are questions over whether a suitable access can be achieved, and the site is adjacent to a sewage treatment works, both of which could limit the suits suitability for residential development.

GNLP0275 (0.5ha) is proposed for redevelopment of a former builder's yard and the adjacent undeveloped space for housing. There are some areas at risk of surface water flooding, which reduces the developable site area, and the undeveloped part of the site adjoins allotments in Foulsham's conservation area. If the undeveloped part of the site was brought forward as open space, this could enhance the allotments, provide surface water attenuation and maintain a positive relationship with the conservation area. Development of the builder's yard for housing would then improve the site's contribution to the street scene on Claypit Road.

GNLP0605 (0.7ha) is adjacent to the recent housing allocation which has been built out. Access could be achieved via the new development. The site is adjacent to the conservation area, but otherwise unconstrained.

GNLP0286 (2ha) is adjacent to the school playing field and has small areas at risk of surface water flooding, but is otherwise unconstrained. It links the recent housing allocation/development (via GNLP0605) with Twyford Lane, which becomes very narrow at this point but the site affords an opportunity to widen it. Assuming the school (which would become land-locked) does not need to expand, this site could, in combination with GNLP0605, provide a larger housing allocation, at an appropriate scale for the village.

Depending on the amount of growth considered suitable for Foulsham, there are a range of site options available with GNLP0605, part of GNLP0275 and GNLP0286 appearing to present the opportunities for residential development.

3.15. Frettenham

Settlement Summary

Frettenham is classified in the JCS as an Other Village; it has a primary school, village hall and a pub. There is grade 2 agricultural land to the north and east of the village; there is a large TPO group, 2 CWSs and areas of surface water flood risk to the south of the village. One site, GNLP0492, has been promoted in the south which, at 6.3ha, is large compared to the size of the village but would not be large enough to provide or support additional services. The site largely overlaps a CWS and contains many TPO trees. It also contains several areas at risk of surface water flooding. The proposal includes a large area of green infrastructure (GI) and the net developable area would be reduced to approximately 1.3ha if the CWS, TPO trees and flood areas were avoided. The large scale of the GI proposed could have implications in terms of viability and maintenance.

If Frettenham is identified for additional housing in the GNLP, a small area of the proposed site may provide a development opportunity. Though much of the site is proposed for green infrastructure uses, there remain a number of constraints affecting it.

3.16. Great & Little Plumstead

Settlement Summary

Great and Little Plumstead is classified as a Service Village in the JCS. There is currently an allocation (GLP1) at the former Little Plumstead Hospital with planning permission for approximatley 75 dwellings and a new school. There is also a Neighbourhood Plan made though no allocations are included. The parish contains three settlements Great Plumstead, Little Plumstead and Thorpe End Garden Village. There is a bus service, a village hall, primary school, church and post office.

Great Plumstead is approximately 1 km to the south of Little Plumstead with more recent estate development on the former Little Plumstead Hospital and new school to the west. The built-up area is in two parts. Little Plumstead is consists mainly of suburban-type housing. Thorpe End Garden Village consists of estates of large dwellings situated on either side of the Plumstead road with some later estate development. Part of the village is included in within an area for major growth covered by the Growth Triangle AAP.

Seven sites have been put forward for the consideration of future development for residential uses through the GNLP.

In landscape terms all of the land around the village is high quality agricultural land, grades 1 and 2 including all of the sites put forward GNLP0134, 0483, 0330, 0328, 0357, 0420 and 0441 which if developed would reduce the best and most versatile agricultural land. Furthermore, in terms of townscape and how the sites relate to the form and character of the area as well as access to services sites GNLP0441, 0420 are located to the north of Great Plumstead adjacent to the settlement and south of the Witton Run. The school, and the post office are located a short distance away to the north east of these sites. However, the Neighbourhood Plan makes reference to the path along Water Lane requiring improvements in order to provide safe access. Site 0357 is a brownfield site, within Great Plumstead's Settlement Limit where development is generally acceptable provided that is does not result in any significant adverse impact.

While sites 0483, 0134, 0330, 0328 are located adjacent to the built up area of Little Plumstead, there are no services here.

A number of sites have been submitted if Great and Little Plumstead are identified for further growth. However, constraints include high quality agricultural land on all the proposed sites, surface water network capacity and the need for water treatment upgrades.

3.17. Gt Witchingham & Lenwade

Settlement Summary

The JCS identifies Lenwade as a Service Village; it contains a GP, primary school, food shop, pub and a newly built village hall. The village straddles the A1067 Fakenham Road, as do its services. There is one allocation GWI1 for 27 dwellings and a new Village Hall. There are significant areas surrounding the village at risk of fluvial flooding, and some areas within the village at risk of surface water flooding. Other constraints include some listed buildings, group TPO trees, and the River Wensum SSSI and several CWSs which surround the village on three sides.

Three sites have been promoted for development in Lenwade, grouped closely together near the new village hall, and all of which are adjacent to the current built form to some extent. The site which is least well-related to the existing village is GNLP0586 (2.9 ha). This site is adjacent to, indeed slightly overlaps a CWS and has been proposed as publicly accessible open space. To the south of this site is GNLP0548 (1.8 ha), which is adjacent to housing on two sides and contains some areas at risk of surface water flooding but is otherwise unconstrained. The southern half of the third site, GNLP0608 (1.7ha), has been proposed for housing, with publicly accessible open space in the northern half, which is adjacent to a CWS. The site has some areas at risk of surface water flooding and is close to a listed building, but is otherwise unconstrained.

In conclusion, if small-scale growth is sought in Lenwade, the combination of these three sites could enhance the existing CWS while providing open space, through provision of housing on GNLP0548 and the southern portion of GNLP0608.

3.18. Hainford

Settlement Summary

The JCS classifies Hainford as an Other Village; it has a primary school, village hall and pub. The parish contains the settlements of Hainford and Waterloo; there are many areas at risk of surface water flooding, listed buildings and some group TPOs, and there is also a CWS to the west of Waterloo.

Eight sites have been promoted (under 7 references) for development within the parish of Hainford ranging from 1ha to 10.7ha. Two sites relate to Waterloo, two to Hainford and one is at Hainford Hall. Three sites (GNLP0512 - two sites spread over 3.6ha) and GNLP0065, (1ha) do not relate to any settlement.

GNLP0069 (10.7ha) and GNLP0393 (1.5ha) lie to the north and south of Waterloo. The former site would produce development disproportionate to the existing settlement pattern but is not large enough to provide or support additional services. The smaller site has significant areas at risk of surface water flooding, appears to partially overlap the school car park and would affect the setting of the church.

GNLP0190 (8.4ha) sits to the east of Hainford Hall. This is a relatively unconstrained site, but is not well related to the existing village, and could impact on the setting of Hainford Hall.

GNLP0582 (3ha) contains significant areas at risk of surface water flooding and is adjacent to a TPO group. Even if the site was sub-divided, the part of this site without flood risk would not be contiguous with the main part of the village.

GNLP0181 (1.1ha) is the site best related to the existing built form of Hainford village. It has few constraints although it could affect the setting of Hainford Hall.

To conclude, if Hainford is identified for further growth, GNLP0181 or part of it appears to be the least constrained site for residential development.

3.19. Hellesdon

Settlement Summary

Hellesdon is classified as a Fringe Parish in the JCS. Much of the parish away from the Wensum Valley is built up, consisting of both residential and employment areas.

Overall, the main of constraints are the Wensum valley to the west (which is internationally designated as a Special Area of Conservation and nationally as a SSSI) and Norwich International Airport on the east.

There are currently five allocations in the Site Allocations DPD (2016), two for housing (HEL2 and HEL5), one for mixed use development (HEL1) and two for community facilities (HEL2 and HEL3). Overall, the permissions provide for around 1,300 dwellings. There is also a Neighbourhood Plan in progress at the time of writing.

Four sites have been put forward for consideration through the GNLP, with site GNLP0332, proposed for residential development and open space, considered under Horsford in this document.

Sites GNLP 1019 and 1020, 1021 have been put forward by the parish council for community facilities, 1019 for recreational open space, and 1020 for extension to burial ground and 1021 for recreational open space. Two of these sites (1019 and 1020) are currently allocated for these uses in the Site Allocations plan, and site 1021 currently is currently in use as recreational open space.

Given current commitments within the parish and the limited number of additional sites submitted for residential and employment development in Hellesdon, there appears to be limited potential for additional expansion. The exception is site GNLP0332 in the north of the parish which is considered under Horsford. This proposal will need to be considered in the light of the principle of open space use on the smaller site GNLP1019 within GNLP 0332 already being established. The principle of the burial ground extension is also established through the Site Allocations plan. Further consideration will need to be given to the best means of addressing site GNLP1021, proposed for designation for recreational use.

3.20. Hevingham

Settlement Summary

The JCS identifies Hevingham as an Other Village; it has a primary school, village hall and a pub. There are areas at risk of surface water flooding, and listed buildings within the village, a SSSI/SAC, some CWSs and ancient woodland in close proximity. The main part of the village lies to the west of the A140, while there is a small hamlet north-west of this known as The Heath.

One site has been promoted in the parish: GNLP0292 is to the east of the A140, adjacent to a CWS. The school is within walking distance, but pedestrian access which would require crossing the A140, creating a significant constraint.

To conclude, if additional housing was considered in Hevingham, consideration should be given to identifying additional sites.

3.21. Honingham

Settlement Summary

Honingham is identified as a Smaller Rural Community in the JCS and has no settlement boundary. It has a village hall and a pub. The village is adjacent to the A47, has some areas of fluvial and surface water flood risk and has some CWS at a distance to the west and north-east. There is a scattering of listed buildings within the parish.

Six sites have been promoted within the parish, ranging from 0.7ha to 114ha in size. Most sites are contiguous to each other, although not to the village of Honingham, and are promoted as a 'new settlement'.

The exception to these sites is GNLP0411 (0.7ha) which is well related to the village of Honingham and is proposed for housing. While the site has limited access to services, it has few other constraints and offers the opportunity to connect Mill Lane and Fellowes Road, improving permeability, subject to appropriate highways improvements.

Sites GNLP0415-A to G are proposed for a new settlement. Parts of the overall site overlap into the parishes to the south. The sites have a range of constraints that could be overcome by new settlement scale development. It has areas at risk of surface water flooding, and contains and is adjacent to CWSs, but given the size of the site, development could avoid these parts. The site's limited access to existing services would need to be addressed by improved access to the Norwich urban area. In the long term, the site is large enough to provide local services such as primary education, a village hall and local shops. It also includes employment opportunities and extensive amounts of green space including a country park. A very significant amount of work would need to be done to further investigate the constraints and opportunities of a site of this size. A New Settlements Topic Paper provides additional information on this issue and question 12 in the Growth Options consultation document covers new settlements.

In conclusion, if Honingham is considered suitable for small scale development site GNLP0411 has few constraints. Sites GNLP0415-A to G would be very remote if considered separately and would need to be considered as a potential new settlement. Site GNLP0415-C (54.3ha) could also be considered separately for employment uses associated with the Food Enterprise Zone (the site contains the current area that has a Local Development Order in place).

3.22. Horsford

Settlement Summary

Horsford is a large village and parish with a population of approximately 4,100. The village is classified as a Service Village in the JCS and has a range of services. The historic core is in the south of the village near to Horsford Hall and the Grade II* Church of All Saints. The surrounding landscape, especially to the north, is characterised by plantation woodlands, several of which are County Wildlife Sites.

Most development in recent decades has been in the north of the village and this pattern will be reinforced by current commitments. Former allocations (HOR1 and HOR2) have recently been built out at Pinelands for 53 homes and employment and north of Mill Lane for 125 homes. There is also a planning permission for 259 homes further north of Mill Lane (site GNLP0519 and application 20161770).

The twenty two sites put forward for consideration for allocation through the GNLP can be divided into three categories: firstly, sites north and west of the village; secondly, sites to its south and south-east; and thirdly sites in the parish away from the built up area of the village and south of the Northern Distributor Road (NDR).

1) Six sites (GNLP 1043, 0059, 0251, 0469, 0519 and 0423) are located north and west of the village, ranging in size from approximately 1 to 11 ha. The main constraints are vehicular access to the sites, encroachment into the countryside and the vulnerability of parts of some sites to surface water flood risk. As sites 0251, 0469, 0519 and 0423 are adjacent to the existing built up area, consequently their development would be broadly sympathetic to the form and character of the village and well-related to the existing facilities, including the school. Sites 1043 and 0059 are some distance away from the existing built up area, so their development would therefore not be sympathetic to the form and character of the village and the sites have very poor access.

2) Eleven sites (GNLP 0151, 0153, 0192, 0264, 0283, 0359, 0368, 0422, 0479, 0578 and 1008) are located south and south-east of the village, ranging in size from approximately 1.5 to 16 ha. In traffic terms, the sites would have good access to the NDR which would reduce traffic impacts on the centre of the village, though providing suitable vehicular access to the Holt Road could be a constraint in some cases. Other constraints include surface water flood risk, impact on heritage assets and townscape considerations.

3) Five sites (GNLP 0302, 0332, 0333, 0334 and 0419) have been promoted south of the NDR, ranging in size from approximately 7 to 36 ha. Whilst within the parish of Horsford, development on these sites would be remote and physically disconnected from the village by the NDR, although there would be potential for sites close to the existing built up area to the south to access services in Hellesdon or for sites of sufficient scale to be developed to provide services. Site GNLP 0302 is remote from existing services as it is located on the Reepham Road away from the edge of Hellesdon. A key constraint within this area is the Norwich International Airport Public Safety Zone. Other local factors are noise, vehicular access issues, mitigation of surface water flood risk and townscape and landscape impact.

In conclusion, should further development be required in Horsford, there are likely to be a number of suitable sites that could be considered for further assessment. General constraints are protecting landscape character, possible upgrades to utilities infrastructure, impacts on the local road network, and townscape implications if extending the built edge of the village. Sites to the north of Horsford benefit from proximity to the school and those to the south have good access to the NDR and services in the village. Sites on the southern side of the NDR could benefit from proximity to services in the urban area, however sites 0419 and 0333 would need to be developed in combination with site 0332 to form part of an urban extension.

3.23. Horsham & Newton St. Faith

Settlement Summary

Horsham and Newton St Faith is classified as a Service Village in the JCS.

The parish includes Horsham St Faith to the south and Newton St Faith to the north. Its services include a primary school, a bus service, a doctor's surgery and a garage.

The JCS identifies the potential for strategic employment sites in the south of the parish predominantly related to the airport.

There are three allocations in the Site Allocations plan, HNF1 for approximately 60 homes in Newton St Faith, and two for employment (HNF2 and HNF3) in Horsham St Faith.

Seven sites have been submitted through the GNLP for consideration of future development, six for residential and one for employment use.

Three proposed housing sites in Newton St Faith (GNLP0085, 0246 and 1054) are all adjacent to the existing settlement, and therefore could be seen as sympathetic to the form and character of the village, though 0246 would extend the village further south into the countryside. Constraints predominantly relate to effects on the historic environment, though sensitive development should be possible if the sites are considered further.

Four sites have been proposed in Horsham St Faith, three for residential development and one for employment. There are two large residential proposals on the south-west (GNLP0125) and south- east (0482) of the village. In general, it appears that constraints on these sites could be overcome, though noise mitigation measures may be required. Site 0471 is a small site located to the south of the village with some limited constraints. The employment proposal site 0466 is located mainly within an existing employment allocation HNF2. It should be noted that there are proposed highway improvements to upgrade junctions to deal with traffic generated by existing allocations which could be impacted by additional sites put forward.

Overall, should Horsham and Newton St Faith be identified for further growth there are a number of potential site options. The choice of sites could be largely dependent on the scale of growth identified for the parish. Site GNLP0466 for employment (9 ha) forms part of an existing employment allocation HNF2 (approx. 35 ha) benefitting from an airport location. Sites 0085, 1054 and 0471 present opportunities for smaller scale and 0125 and 0482 for large scale residential development on the edge of the existing settlements.

3.25. Lingwood & Burlingham

Settlement Summary

Lingwood is classified in the JCS as a Service Village; it has a newly built primary school, new village hall, a shop and pub.

There are a number of existing housing commitments within and on the edge of the built up area of the village.

Lingwood is surrounded by high quality grade 1 and 2 agricultural land, which affects all the submitted sites. There are some areas at risk of surface water flooding, there are a few listed buildings in the north of the village and the Broads SAC/SPA/Ramsar/SSSI is 2km away to the south-west.

Five sites have been promoted for development from just under a hectare to just over 3 hectares in size; though all the sites are adjacent to the development boundary, some sites are better related to the built form of the village than others.

GNLP0499 (2.9ha) and GNLP0067 (1.9ha) are opposite each other, to the north-east of the village adjacent to the main built-up area of the village. The road becomes narrow here. GNLP0499 is proposed for residential development. It is bounded by agricultural land and does not relate well to the existing settlement pattern. GNLP0067 is an existing commitment which is now proposed mixed use development including offices and live work units. It is adjacent to Oak Tree Close, so of the two, this site is better related to the village form but has more area at risk of surface water flooding, which affects the centre of the site and would require mitigation.

GNLP0379 (1ha) is also to the north of the village, on a road frontage and is at risk of surface water flooding. The site is opposite Lingwood village green; it affords a visual connection between the green and the open countryside. Development of the site may affect the setting of some listed buildings, but it is likely any impact could be mitigated.

GNLP0380 (0.9) to the west of the village also has areas at risk of surface water flooding which affect the entire road frontage of the site.

GNLP0296 (3.6ha) is the largest site promoted in Lingwood. It lies to the south-west, adjacent to existing development and with some surface water flood risk. Development of the site would visually erode some of the gap between Lingwood and Strumpshaw.

To conclude, if Lingwood is identified for development, GNLP0380 and GNLP0296 could produce sustainable housing development with appropriate mitigation. If more growth is needed in Lingwood, GNLP0379 and the western part of GNLP0067 may also be acceptable for housing. If employment land is required in Lingwood, GNLP0067 provides a site with some constraints which would require mitigation.

3.26. Marsham

Settlement Summary

The JCS classifies Marsham as an Other Village; it has a primary school, village hall and pub. The built up area of the village is predominantly to the west of the A140. North of the village, there is a band of land at risk of fluvial and surface water flooding, and some localised areas within the existing village at risk of surface water flooding. The village contains a few listed buildings, the roads are narrow and there are CWSs to the north-west and to the east of the village.

Four sites have been promoted for development through the GNLP. One site is very large and overlaps other sites. It offers the opportunity to significantly expand Marsham. The smaller sites offer a range of opportunities to develop the village at different scales if this is considered appropriate.

GNLP0572 (0.7ha) is proposed for residential use. As the former use is a piggery, some remedial work may need to be done; there is potential for some detrimental impact on undesignated heritage assets in Fengate Hamlet; and the local road network is poor. The site is not well related to the built up area of the village.

GNLP0219 (1.7ha) contains site GNLP0572. The same constraints apply: As the former use is a piggery, some remedial work may need to be done; there is potential for some detrimental impact on undesignated heritage assets in Fengate Hamlet; and the local road network is poor. In addition, there is a small area at risk of surface water flooding, but this could be avoided or mitigated. The site is not well related to the built area of the village.

GNLP0171 (1.71ha) is better related to the built form of the village. Development here may impact on the setting of many undesignated heritage assets, although mitigation should be possible; and the local road network is poor. The site would be backland development, however a slightly larger site (taking part of GNLP0229) would allow a link road connecting High Street with Cranes Lane/Fengate, which may result in a more cohesive scheme.

GNLP0229 (63.4ha) incorporates all the other sites and their constraints, but extends significantly further, almost completely encircling the village, including land to the east of the A140. It is promoted for housing, community, retail and commercial development, and the site is theoretically large enough to provide and support additional services. Beyond the constraints already mentioned above, this site lies adjacent to some listed buildings in the south of Marsham. The part of the site to the east of the A140 contains several areas at risk of fluvial and surface water flooding, and contains a listed building. Developing on both sides of the A140 would require residents to cross the road to access services so it is felt that this part of the site is a less sustainable location. However, the area of the site to the west of the A140 is less constrained and could be suitable, on the entire or a reduced site area.

To conclude, if Marsham is considered suitable for small scale housing development, parts of GNLP0229 which are adjacent to the existing village, either north or south of High Street have the fewest constraints. For a more significant allocation, which would potentially be out of scale with the existing village but could provide additional services, the majority of GNLP0229 (except the part to the east of the A140 but including the other sites) may be suitable subject to appropriate mitigation.

3.27. Panxworth

Settlement Summary

Panxworth is classified as a Smaller Rural Community in the JCS. It has no services other than a bus route. The village comprises three hamlets. One site has been submitted adjacent to one of the hamlets. GNLP0110 (2.9ha) is on grade 2 agricultural land. It contains a small area at risk of surface water flooding (which could be avoided) and is between three listed buildings. The remoteness of the site limits its suitability for development.

3.28. Postwick with Witton

Settlement Summary

Postwick with Witton is classified as Smaller Rural Community in the JCS. It is a small village with a rural character lying predominantly to the south of Norwich - Brundall railway line and some way to the north of the marshes adjoining the River Yare. The southern part of the parish lies within the Broads Authority Executive Area. No settlement limit has been defined for Postwick and the village has few facilities in its own right. The southern quarter of the Broadland Business Park and the Park & Ride are within the Postwick parish, but both are relatively inaccessible due to the 'barrier' created by the A47 / Postwick Hub interchange

Four sites have been put forward for consideration for future development through the GNLP.

Site GNLP0369 is a greenfield site of 1.47 ha adjacent to the build-up area off Oaks Lane to the west of the village which is proposed for housing development. The site has limited accessibility to services and its proximity to environmental assets might require mitigation.

Site 0370 is a 6.28 ha greenfield site proposed for housing development and a primary school. It is beyond the build-up area of Postwick to its west and borders to the Broads Authority to the south of the site. Therefore, this could be some effect on distant views into the Broads. Access to the site is most likely from Oakes Lane. The lane is narrow, without a footpath, and there is a particular 'pinch-point' where the Wherry Line bridges over. Traffic from approximately 100 homes is likely to present highways difficulties. These matters are assumed resolvable though significant investment is thought necessary. The national grid gas pipeline runs north-south through the site and is likely to reduce the net developable area.

Site 0371 is a 3.09 ha greenfield site proposed for commercial development. It is adjacent to the A1042 next to the water works to the north of the village. It is physically disconnected from the village of Postwick and encroaches into the countryside. Occupiers are likely to be highly dependent upon the use of the private car.

Site 0571 is a greenfield site of 65.48 ha beyond the built-up area adjacent to the Witton Run river north of the A47 which is proposed for a new settlement. This site has limited access to existing services in Blofield, Brudall and Little Plumstead. It is well below the scale of approximately 200 hectares which the New Settelements Topic Paper concludes is required to support a "freestanding linked new settlement" which could support its own local services and benefit from higher level services nearby. In addition, development at this location could lead to coalescence between Brundall and Great little Plumstead and would involve the loss of the best quality agricultural land (Grades 1 and 2) and could have a significant impact on heritage assets. It is also within the 3,000 m buffer to environemtal assets to the south of the site so mitigation might be required. The substantial scale of the proposal indicates the need for potentially significant highway infrastructure and junction improvements to serve development at this scale.

Dependent on the growth options chosen after the consultation, sites submitted through the GNLP offer the potential for growth of different scales within Postwick, including a small scale new settlement. However, the difficulty of accessing services, as well as other constraints, will be a key consideration in the further assessment of sites.

3.29. Rackheath

Settlement Summary

Rackheath is a predominantly rural parish with a current population of approximately 2,000. The parish is included within the North East Growth Triangle Area Action Plan (AAP) and the major existing residential-led allocations totalling approximately 3,500 new homes.

In form and character, Rackheath is a triangular shaped village consisting of 20th century housing that has mainly developed either side of the Salhouse Road. To the north-west is Rackheath Industrial Estate and there is mixed development, predominantly linear in form, along Green Lane West. Current facilities in the village include a primary school, a local shop and post office, a pub and a village hall. There are also new facilities planned into the large-scale development commitments already made.

General considerations for the parish are proximity to ecologically designated sites, especially the Broads to the north. Rackheath does not have a historic core, but there are heritage assets associated with the former air base. Also of importance, in landscape terms, is land on the southern side of the Northern Distributor Road. Under the Growth Triangle AAP there is an emphasis on retaining a landscape buffer (Policy GT2) on the inner edge of the NDR, of which Rackheath Hall and its historical park is a part. Seven sites have been put forward for consideration through the GNLP, consisting of three larger and four smaller sites.

All three large sites are to the west of the village. GNLP0172 is a 11.44 ha site, located west of Green Lane West and bisected by the Northern Distributor Road. GNLP0478 is a 39.42 ha site, also located west of Green Lane West and bisected by the Northern Distributor Road. The parts of these sites with the most development potential are generally closest to Green Lane West. Land adjacent to the NDR is less favourable for housing and would likely require noise mitigation. On the inner side of the Northern Distributor Road, in the vicinity of Rackheath Hall, there are site specific matters relating to site access, isolation from facilities, and due to isolation from existing settlements the appropriateness of the built form. The third large site is GNLP1060, measuring 24 ha, that is in two parcels either side of the Wroxham Road (A1151). The larger south-eastern portion of the site is adjacent to the existing Rackheath Industrial Estate and reasonably well-related to the strategic allocations already made in Rackheath. The smaller north-western part of the site is more disconnected, by virtue by being on the opposite side of the Wroxham Road.

The four smaller sites contrast in their characteristics. GNLP0095 is a 5.27 ha site off Salhouse Road to the south-west of the NDR which has some constraints. GNLP0351 is the 0.64 ha Plymouth Brethren Christian Church site, off Green Lane West which is well-located in relation to the existing village. GNLP1029 is a 0.8 ha site and GNLP1030 is a 2.8 ha site. Both are accessed off Back Lane, on the western side of the Wroxham Road, and the highways matters associated to this are likely to be the main constraints.

In summary, should further development allocations be considered necessary in Rackheath, there is potential from the sites put forward for both small scale and large scale growth. For larger strategic sites (GNLP0172, 0478 and 1060) the constraints relate to achieving suitable accesses from Green Lane West, implications from the proximity to the Northern Distributor Road, as well as impacts on landscape and managing surface water flood risk. Of the smaller sites (GNLP0095, 0351, 1029, and 1030) GNLP0351 best relates to the settlement's existing built form and appears to have the fewest constraints.

3.30. Reedham

Settlement Summary

Reedham is classified as a Service Village in the JCS. The village has a primary school, village hall, food shop, pub and train station.

The main part of the village is next to the River Yare, with the properties fronting the river being within the Broads Authority area. The second major part of the village is located around the railway station, with more sporadic groups of dwellings located on Church Road. In environmental terms, any development here will be within 3,000 metres of the SAC, SPA, and Ramsar designations found in the Broads.

There is one existing allocation RED1 for 20 dwellings off Station Road.

One site has been submitted for consideration. Site GNLP1001 is a 1.01 ha site located adjacent to allocation RED1, and it appears to rely upon the neighbouring allocation for an access to Station Road. Some regard will be needed to the landscape impact over the river valley, but the site appears generally suitable if further development is concluded to be necessary in Reedham.

3.31. Reepham

Settlement Summary

The JCS classifies Reepham as a Key Service Centre. The village has a primary and a secondary school, village hall, food shop, pub, library and both a GP and dentist surgery. The historic core of the village runs on a linear axis north-east to south-west, but the village has evolved in a concentrated pattern, mostly to the north of this, but the schools are in the south.

There are a number of existing housing commitments in the village. GNLP1007 is proposed as an extension to the sewage treatment works and is not assessed.

Eight sites have been submitted in various sizes ranging from 0.3ha to 11.6ha, giving a variety of options for housing growth. Most sites are reasonably well-related to the existing built form or services. There are fluvial flood zones to the east and west of the village, and a network of areas at risk of surface water flooding throughout the village. There is an area of agricultural grade 2 land to the north of the village, a large group TPO in the centre and a conservation area incorporating a concentration of listed buildings in the village centre and leading out of the village along The Moor. Booton Common SSSI/SAC lies just outside the village to the east; Marriotts Way CWS runs to the north of the village and Reepham Meadows CWS lies just to the south.

Starting in the north of the village, three sites have been promoted which lie to the north of Marriotts Way. Of these, GNLP0543-A (0.9ha) is proposed for housing but is not as well related to the existing built form as it is not contiguous with current housing. The site has a large area at risk of surface water flooding and the northern half encroaches onto grade 2 agricultural land. Nearby, GNLP0543-B (0.4ha) is also promoted for housing and is relatively unconstrained other than a small part of the road frontage being in agricultural land class 2. However, the site is elongated with a narrow street frontage, which would result in development out of keeping with the existing built form. Over the road, GNLP0096 (0.5ha) lends itself more to residential use, subject to compatible uses on the adjacent employment site. The northern part of the site is in agricultural land class 2 and there is a small area at risk of surface water flooding at the rear of the site, but subject to suitable footpath provision this site could be considered a suitable location for housing.

GNLP0221 (0.6ha) and GNLP1006 (0.3ha) lie adjacent to the conservation area just out of the centre of the village. Development may impact on the townscape of the conservation area and there is an area of filled ground near GNLP0221, and surface water flood risk along the road but not within the site. While site GNLP0221 could be a suitable location for housing, access difficulties constrain GNLP1006.

GNLP0353 (11.7ha) is the largest site, and it lies to the north and the south of Dereham Road. It is proposed for housing with open space and potential expansion of the adjacent GP surgery and car park. The site could be subdivided; the northern site has a better relationship to the existing built form, but the southern site is adjacent to the recent allocation for housing/community facility. This could improve the access arrangements for the allocation by offering an alternative access onto Dereham Road. There are areas at risk of surface water flooding, but with a site of this size, these could be avoided. One corner of the site is adjacent to the conservation area, but otherwise the site is relatively unconstrained.

To the south of the village, two sites are less well related to the main residential part of the village, but are close to the two schools. GNLP0180 (1.5ha) is proposed for housing and potential expansion of the adjacent primary school. There are surface water flood issues along the roads; there is a listed building opposite the site, the setting of which would be affected, and there are concerns about the road/footpath capacity nearby, but these factors could be addressed. GNLP0183 (3.6ha) is a little further south, opposite the high school and extending beyond what is currently the southern end of the village. It could be accessed from either Whitwell Road or Mill road. There are surface water flood issues along these roads and site has overhead telegraph cables but is otherwise relatively unconstrained.

To conclude, if Reepham is identified for small scale housing growth, GNLP0096, GNLP0221 and GNLP0180 may provide growth options, subject to appropriate mitigation. If larger levels of growth are considered appropriate for Reepham, all or part of GNLP0353 and GNLP0183 may be sustainable locations for additional housing.

3.32. Salhouse

Settlement Summary

Salhouse is a predominantly rural parish with an approximate population of 1,600. The western edge of the parish is within the boundary of the North East Growth Triangle and the proposals under the allocation for North Rackheath (Policy GT16)) cross the boundary into Salhouse.

The village of Salhouse itself is classified as a Service Village under the Joint Core Strategy. There are two parts of Salhouse, one around Station Road, and the main historic core of the village. There is one existing housing allocation SAL1 for twenty dwellings.

In the main part of the village the Conservation area runs predominantly along Lower Street north-eastwards before expanding to include Upper Street and up to the Broad. Off Cheyney Avenue is more modern residential development with the primary school at the centre.

Local facilities include a village shop and post office, a primary school, two pubs and there is public transport into Norwich either by bus or train. The north-eastern edge of the parish is within the Broads Authority area, with Salhouse Broad a focus for recreational uses. General constraints to development in the parish are the rurality of the road network and the proximity to ecologically designated assets.

The eleven sites put forward for consideration through the GNLP can be categorised as two standalone sites, a pair of sites near the Station Road area, and a cluster of six sites around the main village.

Near Salhouse Broad, GNLP0157 is a standalone site promoted for tourism, potentially expanding the current arrangements there for walking, boating, and camping. To the west of the parish, GNLP0226 also stands alone, promoted as a residential-led scheme and an extension to the GT16 North Rackheath allocation.

Two sites have been put forward in the Station Road area adjacent to a built up area of the village. GNLP0487 is to the north of Norwich Road and GNLP0493 is a linear site to the south of Norwich Road. For both sites access arrangements onto Norwich Road are a constraint, and a main gas pipeline crosses the sites. The effect of developing GNLP0487 and GNLP0493 to their full extent would be to close the gap between Rackheath and Salhouse.

In and around the main part of Salhouse village six sites have been proposed. Sites GNLP0163 and GNLP0164 – as well as GNLP0188 to a lesser extent – would expand the village to the west along Norwich Road, potentially joining it with the Station Road part of the village. GNLP0175 would stretch the village north on the eastern side of Bell Lane and likewise GNLP0161 would elongate the village still further on the western side of Bell Lane. GNLP0160, which is also accessed off Bell Lane, is separated from the existing edge of the village and would represent a break in the built form of the settlement. Constraints for these sites include the narrowness of the roads, as well as landscape and townscape impacts, like the setting of the Grade I Church of All Saints. GNLP0189 is to the north-east of the village, towards Salhouse Broad. It is within the Conservation area, has some Grade II listed buildings nearby, and would need highway improvements to achieve an adequate access.

Should further development be considered necessary in Salhouse, subject to the constraints identified above, then there are likely to be suitable options, either to allocate for small-scale development as per the existing Joint Core Strategy or at a larger scale should it be considered suitable. Exceptions are GNLP0160 and GNLP0226 which are less favourable for residential use due to their separation from the existing built edges of the village. In respect to GNLP0157 its suitability for tourism uses is likely to depend on detailed proposals and striking the appropriate balance of recreational impact relative to ecological conservation.

3.33. South Walsham

Settlement Summary

The JCS classifies South Walsham as a Service Village; it contains a primary school, village hall, shop and pub. The main part of the village is mostly linear, with further linear development along School Lane and an estate at Pilson Green. There is one existing housing allocation SWA1 for 15-20 dwellings.

South Walsham is surrounded by high quality grade 1 agricultural land. Oher constraints in the village include areas at risk of fluvial and surface water flooding, some nearby CWSs, narrow roads and listed buildings.

One site has been proposed for development. At 1.2ha, GNLP0382 is adjacent to the recent allocation. Access to the site is a constraint as the southern boundary is very close to the existing junction with Burlingham Road and the alternative would be a very long cul-de-sac via the recent allocation. Other constraints relate to narrow roads and potential for impact on nearby ecological sites.

If the need for additional housing in South Walsham is identified through the plan, and if highways concerns can be addressed, the site may be suitable for development.

3.34. Spixworth

Settlement Summary

The JCS identifies Spixworth as a Service Village; it contains a primary school, village hall, shop, pub and a GP. Some areas of the village suffer from a risk of surface water or fluvial flooding and the village is located between two historic parks to the east and west and a CWS to the north. There is one existing allocation (SPI1) for residential and open space.

One site has been promoted for development adjacent to the built-up area of Spixworth but within the parish of Crostwick. Site GNLP0467 (6.2ha) is adjacent to existing development and a recent housing allocation which is under construction and from which the site would need to take access. The site is relatively unconstrained, but would need mitigation to deal with potential ecological impacts.

If the need for additional housing in Spixworth is identified through the plan this site could be suitable for residential development.

3.35. Sprowston

Settlement Summary

Sprowston is a suburban edge town council area, part of which is within the North East Growth Triangle Area Action Plan (AAP) boundary as defined in the Joint Core Strategy. The two wards that make up the town council area have a total population of approximately 12,000.

The suburban character of the area mainly comprises 20th Century semi-detached and detached properties often set in large plots with mature planting. In form and character terms, development first occurred along the radial routes out from Norwich and in recent decades there has been more estate-scale development. Recent examples being the Wilkes Farm Drive area; and, near Tesco, the Home Farm and White House Farm developments that are still under construction. The most significant historic building is the Grade I listed Church of St Mary and St Margaret. Just beyond the urban edge, Sprowston Manor and its grounds, which are used as a hotel and golf course, form a significant landscape feature.

Sprowston has a good range of services and facilities, principally based around the designated district centre at Blue Boar that is anchored by a Tesco supermarket. There is primary school and secondary provision within the area.

A number of sites within the parish are already committed under the Growth Triangle Area Action Plan.

From the 'Call for Sites' exercise, three markedly different sites have been proposed.

  • GNLP0042 is a 4.82 ha greenfield site west of the Wroxham Road, to the rear of Hill Farm House. Challenges that the site presents are chiefly to do with its isolation from services and facilities, the townscape implications of breaking from the existing suburban edge, and also issues of providing a junction from the Wroxham Road (A1151).
  • GNLP0383 is a 5.79 ha brownfield site that is currently the Sprowston Park and Ride site. It is being promoted for a high school but if not required for that purpose an alternative proposal is for 150 dwellings. There are not thought to be any site-specific constraints that would prevent development but its future is dependent on decisions taken about the Park & Ride facilities.
  • GNLP0132 is a 66 ha greenfield site promoted by the consortium building the White House Farm development. The site would benefit from the link road for the 1,200 home White House Farm scheme that is under construction; but, considerations for mitigation are nearby filled ground, the possible need for SUDS, managing impact to the landscape, as well as enhancing green infrastructure and biodiversity corridors.

If further development in Sprowston is considered suitable, the three sites provide growth options, but all are constrained to some degree. GNLP0042 is less preferable due to its separation from the existing built edge of Sprowston. GNLP0132 appears generally suitable. GNLP0383 could be strategically important in providing a secondary school but is also potentially suitable for residential development.

3.36. Strumpshaw

Settlement Summary

Strumpshaw is classified as an Other Village in the JCS and has a limited range of services and facilities.

An allocation has been made for 10 dwellings and community facilitates in the Strumpshaw Neighbourhood Plan.

The main village of Strumpshaw is a fairly compact settlement located on the Norwich Road and Buckenham Road. Further housing occurs in the east of the parish adjacent to Lingwood, at the hamlets of Hassingham and Buckenham, and in the west on Long Lane. Much of the parish is within the Broads Authority Area.

The majority of land around the village is grades 1 and 2 high quality agricultural land and there are locally and nationally designated environmental assets in the Yare Valley.

Four sites have been put forward for consideration for future development through the GNLP.

West of the village site GNLP0215 is a 16 ha greenfield site located adjacent to the settlement limit, the railway line and Long Lane which has transport, landscape, townscape and biodiversity constraints.

East of the village Site 0090 is a greenfield site located adjacent to the settlement limit which has some constraints and is identified in the Strumpshaw Neighbourhood Plan as an allocated local green space.

Site 0277, located adjacent to the settlement limit off Norwich Road currently serves as a car park for the Hunstman PH. It has some constraints.

Site 0521 is a greenfield site beyond the settlement limit with limited access to services which would have some impact on distant landscape views.

Overall, if it is considered that additional growth is required in Strupshaw, site options are available, though constraints would have to be addressed.

3.37. Taverham

Settlement Summary

Taverham is classified as a fringe parish in the JCS. It is a parish which has experienced major development, initially between the A1067 and Taverham Road and its continuation The Street. More development has taken place to the north of the A1067 in conjunction with development in the adjoining parishes of Drayton and Horsford. It has a good range of facilities including a primary school, secondary school, village hall, food shop, pub, garage, outdoor recreation, church, library, doctors' surgery, dentist and a bus service. In addition, allocation TAV1 has planning permission for a supermarket, petrol station, restaurant and commercial uses.

Five sites have been put forward for the consideration for future development through the GNLP.

Site 0337 is an extensive site in the north of the parish which is adjacent to the NDR. Development at this location might require noise mitigation measures and highways improvements and there are some areas prone to surface water flooding.

Site 0062 is in the Wensum Valley, a Special Area of Conservation and SSSI, therefore development at this location could have an impact on important habitats. Other constraints include surface water flooding issues and the presence of a safeguarded mineral resource.

Sites 0159 and 0457 are close to Taverham Hall, a grade II listed building, historic park land and ancient woodland.

Site 0563 is to the west of Taverham. Constraints include proximity to a county wildlife site at Walsingham Plantation and separation from the built up area of the village.

Overall, should Taverham be identified for further development through the GNLP, site 0337 appears to have fewer constraints in comparison to other sites as it has access to services and is at some distance from significant environmentally sensitive areas to the south. However, issues related to proximity to the NDR would need to be addressed on this site.

3.38. Thorpe St. Andrew

Settlement Summary

Thorpe St Andrew is a suburban edge town council area, part of which is within the North East Growth Triangle Area Action Plan (AAP) boundary as defined in the Joint Core Strategy. The two wards that make up the town council area have a total population of approximately 15,000.

Historically Thorpe St Andrew developed along the Yarmouth Road parallel to the north bank of the River Yare. Historic listed buildings line the Yarmouth Road, including the Grade II* Thorpe Hall and the ruins to the Church of St Andrew. The Conservation area extends northwards from the River Yare up the valley side to the top of Thorpe Ridge. The suburban character of the remainder of the area mainly comprises 20th Century semi-detached and detached properties often set in large plots with mature planting.

Thorpe St Andrew has a good range of services and facilities, principally based around the district centre at Pound Lane that is anchored by a Sainsbury supermarket. There is primary and secondary school provision.

Thorpe St Andrew has limited land for new development and significant sites, like Pinebanks, are already permitted for development.

From the 'Call for Sites' exercise, three sites have been proposed, all of which are part of, or near to, Thorpe Woodlands.

GNLP0228 is a 10 ha site on the east side of Woodside Road. Whilst likely to require highway improvements, potential access exists to Woodside Road. The main constraint is the existing designation as a County Wildlife Site and the importance of the land to wider green infrastructure linkages.

Similarly, within the County Wildlife Site designation, GNLP0442 is a 70 ha site that straddles the Plumstead Road with a proposal for up to 300 homes and the remainder as a Community Woodland Park. Constraints include access, landscape, townscape, and the road network, with the main constraint the County Wildlife Site designation.

GNLP0540 is a 3 ha site occupied by Oasis Sport & Leisure Centre. The site is relatively unconstrained, but there are significant numbers of trees onsite and this land forms part of the green infrastructure corridor from Thorpe Woodlands. An overriding factor, however, is planning consent is given for redevelopment of the Leisure Club and outline permission for building 27 new residential units (reference 20151132).

Given the extensive current commitments in Thorpe St Andrew and the generally built up nature of the parish, there appears to be little capacity for additional growth beyond the permitted site GNLP0540. The other submitted sites, GNLP0228 and 0442, are heavily constrained, chiefly by their ecological value and the County Wildlife Site status of Thorpe Woodlands.

3.39. Weston Longville

Settlement Summary

Weston Longville is classified as Smaller Rural Community and the Countryside in the JCS, where there is no Settlement Limit. One site has been submitted for consideration through the GNLP, GNLP0553 (5.1ha at Weston Hall) which is within Weston Longville parish but close to Lenwade. While the site has walkable access to services, it is separated from the existing built up area. There are large areas of the site at risk of fluvial and surface water flooding. The site contains three listed buildings, and is sandwiched between the River Wensum SSSI/SAC and a CWS. It is also adjacent to a group TPO and a listed building.

Due to constraints on the submitted site, there may be a case for seeking additional sites in Weston Longville if the GNLP identifies the need for development in this area.

3.41. Wroxham

Settlement Summary

Wroxham is classified as a Key Service Centre in the JCS as it shares services with Hoveton, which is outside the GNLP area. The services in the combined Wroxham/Hoveton built-up area include a primary and secondary school, village hall, food shop, pub, library and GP. There is currently one housing allocation WRO1 for 100 dwellings and open space.

Two sites have been promoted for development in the south of the village, close to the recent permission/allocation which is under construction.

GNLP0041 (1.8ha) is the Wroxham Football Club (WFC) site, which is proposed for housing. This proposal is predicated on the club finding a suitable relocation site. A relocation site is proposed in Rackheath as part of this submission. The current WFC site is accessed from Skinners Lane, which is very narrow and would need to be improved. The site has limited access to services and is adjacent to the Broads Authority executive area, meaning landscape and ecological mitigation may be required. GNLP0041 lies entirely within Wroxham conservation area, opposite a group TPO and adjacent to the railway line.

GNLP0504 (15.2ha) is located to the south-east of the built-up area, mostly on grade 2 agricultural land. The site has limited access to services and would extend the village along the eastern side of Salhouse Road. It contains some areas at risk of surface water flooding which could be avoided, is partly adjacent to Wroxham conservation area and partly adjacent to two listed buildings and some TPO trees. The site contains some veteran trees, and is relatively close to ecological sites in the Broads. It could be subdivided, being accessible from multiple points including opposite the recent permission on Salhouse Road which is the part of the site on the least versatile agricultural land.

In conclusion, if Wroxham is identified for growth, with its potential for subdivision GNLP0504 offers a range of options, subject to appropriate mitigation. If the relocation of Wroxham FC is to be supported, site GNLP0041 may also have development potential, although this would also require mitigation.
