The catchment of Great Witchingham Primary Academy brings Great Witchingham, Lenwade, Weston Longville, Alderford, Attlebridge, Little Wichingham and Morton on the Hill into a village cluster under policy 7.4. The school has significant capacity issues and it is very small and landlocked.
It is considered that as well as existing allocations and windfall development, approximately 12-20 new homes are appropriate for the Great Witchingham cluster. The cluster has a range of facilities including a primary school, food shop, pub, petrol station, doctor’s surgery and industrial estate
One site is identified as a housing allocation, providing for approximately 20 new homes in the cluster. There are no carried forward residential allocations but there is a total of 30 additional dwellings with planning permission on small sites. This gives a total deliverable housing commitment for the cluster of between 50 homes between 2018-2038.
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.
