Land west of Etling View

Land west of Etling View - Norwich Road - Dereham - Norfolk

We have now submitted our proposals for a new residential development, along with public open spaces, on land off Norwich Road in Dereham. Our plans for this site have been designed to form an extension of our existing Etling View development in Dereham.

  • Land west of Etling View, Dereham

    We have now submitted our proposals for a new residential development, along with public on spaces, on land off Norwich Road in Dereham. Our plans for this site have been designed to form an extension of our existing Etling View development.

    Under our proposals, we will provide 62 high-quality new homes – including two, three, four and five-bedroom properties – with a proportion of affordable housing to be included.

    We hosted a public consultation event in Dereham on Wednesday 22nd July 2015 to give local people a chance to view and comment on our emerging proposals.

    The public consultation period for our proposals has now ended and our planning application has been submitted to Breckland District Council (application reference number 3PL/2015/1045/O). You can view our planning application in full by clicking here.

  • The proposed development site

    We have now submitted an outline planning application for the proposed development, which is located to the west of our existing Etling View development off Norwich Road, and north of an established residential area. Our plans for this site have been designed to form an extension of Etling View.

    The land, which covers an area of approximately 3.4 hectares, is not currently allocated for development and we are therefore preparing to submit an outline planning application to Breckland Council to assist them with addressing their housing shortfall.

    Transport

    The transport related impacts of the proposed development will be robustly assessed as part of a Transport Statement, completed in accordance with government requirements and scrutinized by Norfolk County Council.

    The site is well located, and a wide range of local facilities including the town centre, local schools and amenities are located within reasonable walking distance from the site. Residents of the new development will also benefit from our commitment to construct a new offsite footway/cycleway along Norwich Road, linking Hornbeam Drive with Dereham Neatherd High School, located to the west of the site.

    The nearest bus stops are located on Norwich Road to the west of its junction with Windmill Avenue, which can be reached through the Etling View development, and via Yarrow Road and Windmill Avenue.

     

    Drainage

    Taylor Wimpey is liaising with the county and district councils, Anglian Water and the Environment Agency to provide suitable and adequate drainage infrastructure for the development. The foul water drainage will be directed to an existing pumping station in the adjacent Etling View development. Anglian Water has confirmed that their existing network currently has adequate capacity to treat the foul flows from the proposed development.

    Further small scale offsite improvement works may also be necessary and will be funded by Taylor Wimpey. The surface water drainage strategy will consist of a combination of underground and ground level storage that will be discharged into the local watercourse, located to the north west of the site.

    The use of Sustainable Drainage Systems (SuDS) will enable the surface water from the proposed development on land west of Etling View to be controlled and managed safely throughout its lifetime, taking into account climate change.

     

    Ecology and landscaping

    The overall design of the new residential development will enhance landscape character and existing views, whilst also creating wildlife features such as green corridors which pass through the proposed housing and link to boundaries and surrounding vegetation.

    The existing public right of way at the northern boundary will be retained and enhanced to maintain screening from the open countryside to the north.

  • About our proposals

    The image below shows an initial Development Framework Plan for our proposed development. It is intended as a general guide to show you how the properties, open space and internal roads could be arranged.

    This layout is not final and certain elements could change, depending on the comments we receive during the public consultation period and future discussions with the local authority. 

    Our proposed development comprises the following key elements:

    • 62 new homes.
    • A proportion of affordable housing.
    • A broad mix of 2, 3, 4 and 5-bedroom properties.
    • Terraced, semi-detached and detached houses, plus a proportion of bungalows to match the existing bungalows located on the southern boundary of the site.
    • Vehicle access off Oak Road via our existing Etling View development.
    • Areas of public open space and for nature conservation.

    Our proposed scheme seeks to create a high-quality development that can fulfill the local need for market and affordable housing while respecting the character and heritage of the surrounding area.
