Lingwood and Burlingham, Strumpshaw and Beighton


The catchment area of Lingwood Primary School brings Lingwood and Burlingham, together with Beighton and Strumpshaw into a village cluster under policy 7.4.  Space at Lingwood Primary School is forecast to be taken up in future years but as well as windfall development, Norfolk County Council (as education authority) would accept development in the order of 50-60 new homes.  The cluster has a range of facilities including a primary school, village hall, recreation land, food shop and access to public transport (including a train station). 


Consequently, two sites are allocated, providing for a total of 60 new homes in the cluster.  There are no carried forward residential allocations but there is a total of 77 additional dwellings with planning permission on small sites.  This gives a total deliverable housing commitment for the cluster of 137 homes between 2018 – 2038.


Strumpshaw has a made neighbourhood plan which covers the same area as that of the parish boundary. The Plan was made in July 2014 and covers the period to 2026.  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.
