As expected, a formal planning application has now come forward for the development of Brook Park Phase II. The application reads as follows:
Hybrid application: Full planning application for 150 dwellings (Use Class C3), a new link road between Tunstead Road and Stalham Road, associated infrastructure and
public open space. Outline planning application (with all matters reserved, except access) for the provision of 1ha land for provision of up to 75 bedspaces of age-restricted care-dependent dwellings for elderly-persons, such as Extra Care/Assisted Living housing (Use Class C3). Land East of, Tunstead Road, Hoveton, Norfolk.
The planning documents for this application can be viewed and commented on via the North Norfolk District Council Planning Portal. The public consultation deadline for this application is currently set at 25th March 2020.
Hoveton Parish Council is aware of the reservations shared by many local residents concerning this application and is actively considering these concerns. In terms of planning matters, HPC is merely a consultee and it doesn’t have the power to determine (to approve or refuse) an application. HPC will submit its views on this application to the local planning authority (in this case, North Norfolk District Council) once the Parish Council has had the opportunity to fully consider this application and to consult with the local community.
As part of this community consultation, HPC has arranged for a public exhibition of planning documents for Brook Park Phase II to be held on Wednesday 4th March (2pm to 8pm) in the main hall at Hoveton Village Hall, Stalham Road. This event will be hosted by the developer involved in this planning application, and all residents of Hoveton should receive a leaflet this week containing details of the exhibition.
HPC will then host an open public meeting in the main hall at Hoveton Village Hall on Wednesday 11th March (6.30pm start) to discuss the Brook Park Phase II application with the community and to listen to the views of residents. It is hoped that representatives from the developer and from organisations such as NNDC and Anglian Water will also be able to attend this meeting. Further details of this meeting will be posted on HPC’s website and Facebook page in the coming weeks.
