Summary of Constraints Mapping

Primary Constraints

The plan below provides an overview of the primary constraints identified at the masterplan stage which will require consideration through this planning application:

  • West Row Road – addressing the potential severance and barrier to movement;
  • Existing Vegetation – comprising existing hedgerows and boundary trees that offer locally distinctive landscape features and suitable habitats that warrant retention and protection;
  • River Lark valley – sensitivity to change;
  • Settlement Edge – both the existing settlement edge and new western boundary to the settlement created by this development are sensitive boundaries;
  • Views – development could retain long-ranging views of the St Mary’s Church in the east;
  • Heritage – preserving the significance of the Grade II listed Wamil Hall and any archaeology present;
  • Surface Water Drainage – addressing site levels to provide a suitable surface water management;
  • Bird Management – implementing design and management of water to discourage avian species hazardous to aviation safety; and
  • Conservation Sites – potential adverse effects on Breckland SPA;
  • Utilities – observing easements;
  • Other technical matters have been considered but not been identified a a significant constraint to development.
