South Norfolk Village Clusters Housing Allocations Plan (Reg. 18 Draft)
The Plan Objectives
The following sets out the three Objectives which the Village Clusters is aiming to achieve through the allocation of appropriate sites, the amendment of Settlement Limits and the Core Policies (below) to guide development.
SNVC Objective 1 - Meet housing needs
Deliver housing in accordance with the Greater Norwich Local Plan housing target for the South Norfolk Village Clusters through the allocation of viable and deliverable development sites for housing. Ensuring that housing sites provide an appropriate mix of house types, sizes and tenures to allow for residents at different parts of their life cycle e.g. first time buyers, those seeking family housing and those looking to downsize or move to more suitable accommodation in later life. Provide opportunities for 'self-builds' through the extension or amendment of settlement boundaries to allow 'in-fill' development in appropriate locations.
SNVC Objective 2 - Protecting village communities and support rural services and facilities
Provide opportunities for new housing development in a range of settlements within the village clusters to support local services and facilities, meeting the needs of a range of occupiers with the potential to support different local services and facilities
SNVC Objective 3 - Protect the character of villages and their settings
Ensure that the scale, location and density of housing is well related to the form and character of existing villages and ensure appropriate landscaping measures are delivered as part of new development.
