Policy CAW2: Land east of Gayford Road, Cawston


This site to the east of Gayford Road was allocated in the 2016 Broadland Local Plan but has yet to be developed at the base date of this plan. The principle of development on the site has already been accepted and it is expected that development will take place within the time-period of this local plan up to 2038.  The site is considered in the calculation of the housing requirement, providing at least 20 homes, but more may be accommodated, subject to an acceptable design and layout being achieved.


Adjacent site GNLP0293 is proposed to be allocated for a further 40 new homes and both sites should be masterplanned together to bring forward a cohesive development.  This site is underlain by sand and gravel so Norfolk Minerals and Waste Core Strategy policy CS16 would apply if the site size is increased above 1 hectare.
