This application relates to the land south of Homestead on Church Road for 2 dwellings. The revised documentation is available on the SNC website here (dated 14 September). The architect has written:

"…I enclose a copy of our revised drawings for re-consultation and comment on them as follows:
Plot 1 -- remains as similar to that submitted but reduced in length and internal fireplace
Plot 2 -- re-design of plot for layout with regard to trees and habitable room to shading areas. Moved further away from the South boundary and outside root protection zones and canopy spreads.
Shading plans. The enclosed shading plans have been produced, 855837 2012 recommendation, Autumn and Spring equinox and high Summer. 
We have shown the requested visibility splay on the topographical survey drawing indicating that it will not be necessary to remove neighbouring hedging.
I hope that the enclosed drawings address the concerns raised and we now look forward to receiving your approval."

Should you wish to comment on these revised plans then please do so to the Planning Officer concerned at South Norfolk Council before 28 September 2016.

Development Management Committee

The SNC’s Development Management Committee, which decides on planning applications made to SNC, are meeting at Swan House in Long Stratton on 3rd February from 10 a.m. Item 2 on the agenda is the 10 house development on Church Road. The agenda and full documentation for the meeting is to be found here on the SNC site. An abbreviated version including the agenda, preamble and the Wreningham relevant section is here: extract.

The application has undergone a few revisions since it was presented to the Parish Council – specifically some adjustments to site & house characteristics and the introduction of a TROD along the front of the site. You can inspect these changes via a search for the application (using reference 2015/2449) here.

The Parish Council will have representatives at this meeting to underline the rationale for its rejection of this planning application at its November meeting – see Minutes 30 Nov 2015.

Making small changes to a home can significantly improve the health and well-being and quality of life of people living with dementia and their carers. Home adaptations can enable people to live independently for longer, to continue to do things they enjoy and can reduce or delay the need for residential care or hospital admissions.

South Norfolk Council and South Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are providing grants of up to £1000 to make adaptations and improvements to the home. Their poster is here Forget-me-not
