The catchment of Horsford Primary School brings Horsford, Felthorpe and Haveringland into a village cluster under policy 7.4. The school currently has limited capacity.
It is considered that as well as existing commitments and windfall development, approximately 20-50 new homes are appropriate for the Horsford cluster. In addition to the primary school, services include a shop, doctor’s surgery, village hall, library and public house.
One site is identified as a housing allocation, providing for 45 new homes in the cluster. There are no carried forward residential allocations but there is a total of 398 additional dwellings with planning permission on a variety of sites. This gives a total deliverable housing commitment for the cluster of between 443 homes between 2018-2038.
Horsford has a made neighbourhood plan which covers the same area as that of the parish boundary. The Plan was made in July 2018 and covers the period to 2038. It contains a series of policies that look to shape development within the neighbourhood area. There are policies within the plan that will be of relevance to development and any applications that are submitted for development within the parish should have due regard to those policies.
All new and carried forward allocations are expected to address standard requirements associated with development. These vary from place to place, but are likely to include mitigations for flood risk (as well as SUDs), highways improvements, safeguarding of minerals resources, land remediation, measures to protect the environment, biodiversity, and landscape intrusion.
