The site boundary has been drawn to avoid areas of surface water flood risk and the most significant historic environment impacts. The site is well located on the eastern approach into the village adjacent to a site allocated in the last local plan, and will form the gateway to Hingham when approaching from the east. The allocation is subject to provision of adequate visibility splays and layout of the development to create an active frontage at B1108. Footways need to be provided at the site frontage, along with a pedestrian crossing refuge in the vicinity of Ironside Way. Consideration should also be given to connectivity with PROW Hingham F9. The site is allocated at a lower gross density than usual, as the surface water drainage area needs to be significant and the need to mitigate impact on nearby listed buildings and protect TPO trees has been taken into account. The net density will be in line with the indicative minimum in Policy 2.
