In March 2017 Broadland District Council’s Planning Committee approved David Wilson Homes’ planning application for the second phase of development at the site. Following discussions with Broadland District Council planning officers, David Wilson Homes have now submitted a re-plan for phase two of the approved scheme to better meet the local community’s need for market and affordable housing.
As such, the final planning application for the re-plan proposes:
• A mix of 304 high quality new homes, including a total of 91 new affordable rent, discount market and shared ownership homes
• 1.47ha of onsite green public open space and children’s play space for new and existing residents to enjoy
• Funding for offsite public open space and local infrastructure
The final application has also been produced following a meaningful consultation with the local community, which has included one-to-one meetings with stakeholders and neighbouring residents. As such, the re-plan has been carefully designed to provide a mix of homes that better meet the needs of the local community, whilst redistributing green open space across the site. The proposal has also maintained, and in some areas increased, the distances between existing properties and proposed new homes.
David Wilson Homes are also committed to working with Norfolk County Council Highways to improve the safety of the roundabout on Holt Road. They have cut back trees and bushes as well as installed a gateway feature and additional chevron signage to improve visibility. David Wilson Homes are working with Norfolk County Council Highways to find a permanent solution but will be immediately implementing a temporary scheme to improve the safety of the roundabout as soon as this is agreed with NCC Highways.
The proposals include a mix of new homes ranging from one bed maisonettes and two bed homes, ideal for first
time buyers, up to three, four and five bedroom family homes.
