Dickleburgh Neighbourhood Plan

The Dickleburgh Neighbourhood Plan is being prepared by the Dickleburgh Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group. The Dickleburgh Neighbourhood Plan will include site allocations for residential development, based upon housing requirements for different areas as set out in the Greater Norwich Local Plan (GNLP).

The indicative housing requirements for Dickleburgh is a minimum of 25 homes.

To ensure transparency, the chapter includes the list of the sites in Dickleburgh that have been promoted to the Council for consideration. The assessment and allocation of these sites will be undertaken through the Neighbourhood Plan, relevant details of the site(s) promoted to the Council have been shared with the Neighbourhood Plan steering Group.

The ongoing devolution of responsibility for making allocations to Dickleburgh will be contingent on adequate progress being made with the Neighbourhood Plan.

Form and character

Dickleburgh and Rushall

The main concentration of development within the parish is based along the former A140. There are also smaller rural communities at Rushall and Langmere. Individual dwellings and farmsteads are dispersed throughout the remainder of the parish.

The historical centre of the village has developed along The Street and is characterised by buildings close to the road. More recent development has extended the built-up area both north and south along the former A140 with further developments eastwards along Rectory Road and Harvey Lane. Immediately to the north of the main part of the village is an area of development at Dickleburgh Moor, a small detached ribbon of development along the west side of Norwich Road. A number of estate developments have taken place in between Rectory Road and Harvey Lane. The A140 by-passes the village to the west providing links to Norwich to the north and Ipswich to the south, as well as Diss via the A1066.

Services and Community Facilities

The settlement has a range of social, recreational and community facilities including preschool, a primary school, village hall, pub and shop. The village has the benefit of mains sewerage. There is also a limited bus service. There are also several employment uses covering various sectors.

Settlement Limit and Constraints

The Settlement Limit has been drawn to include the main built form of the settlement, but specifically excludes the grounds of All Saints Church and the Rectory, the allotment gardens on Chapel Road and the recreation ground on Harvey Lane because of their contribution to the form and character of the village. In addition, no boundary has been drawn around the detached ribbon development at Dickleburgh Moor as further residential development would be detrimental to the rural character of the area. The Settlement Limit extends around the main settlement which includes the allocated land north of Harvey Lane made within the 2016 Site Allocations Plan. No alterations are proposed to the existing Settlement Limit.

(4) QUESTION 45: Do you agree with the extent of the Settlement Limit and any changes proposed? If not, please explain what further changes should be made.
