LDF Situation Report – May 2012

SNDC is soon to consider its planners recommendations relating to the plots of land being considered under the Local Development Framework (LDF). Draft recommendations posted on the SNDC website show 1 plot has been identified in Wreningham – this is on Church road. It also indicates that any development is likely to be limited to a maximum of 10 houses. Once the Council has considered the recommendations then the recommendations, with supporting analysis, will be published to inform a further round of consultation. As yet no definite date for this has been published.

SNDC has published for consultation (closing 6 June 2012) its Place-Making Guide. This will become the key document against which planning applications will need to reflect and by which they will be assessed by the planners. This is also a key document for parishioners to be aware of when they consider commenting on future planning applications. This document can be downloaded as a pdf at http://www.south-norfolk.gov.uk/planning/5287.asp. It is expected that the main Council will consider this document for adoption in July.

Wreningham Parish Council’s response to the SNDC LDF consultation

The Parish Council undertook to share with Wreningham Parishioners the draft of its response to South Norfolk District Council’s (SNDC) invitation to comment on the Local Development Framework (LDF). The next meeting accepted the draft and it was duly sent to SNDC in November 2011. The response presented a whole village perspective and does not comment on individual plots identified in the LDF.

Consultation on new houses and jobs

South Norfolk Council (SNDC) has started the next stage of consultation on where housing and jobs growth should go in South Norfolk. This is an opportunity for you to influence where new homes and jobs will go, and what our village’s development boundary will be in the future.

They’ve worked out how many new houses and businesses and need to provide space for them in the towns and villages of South Norfolk over the next 20 years or so. They need to focus on exactly where they should be located, fine tuning the precise number according to local conditions. Your knowledge is needed in helping them make their decisions. So over the next few weeks everyone has the chance to influence where future houses, businesses, roads, shops and other facilities are built.

Land owners have suggested about 15 times more land than is needed to provide for future development. Nearly 1500 parcels of land have been proposed. About 100 are needed so SNDC is asking you to tell us which land should be set aside for which use especially new houses. The future of Long Stratton and Wymondham are particularly important and they will be asking you about special action plans for them.
