Confirmed Minutes of the Planning Committee meeting held on 15 March 2019.

 

Mr Tim Betts from Great Ellingham Parish Council submitted comments following the publication of the Minutes that had been approved by the Planning Committee on 8 April 2019.  Members are being asked to agree the amendment to these approved Minutes as follows:

 

On page 48/52 of the agenda pack,  the Parish Council raised concern about the effect the Link Road could have upon Wroo Road; Long Street, Chequers Lane and the ‘infamous’ staggered junction next to the Great Ellingham village school, with which Members were very familiar. Despite this representation, Transport Planning Associates either ignored it or were not asked to consider it in their various transport assessments. There was a grave danger that drivers, heading toward Dereham; Watton; Fakenham; Swaffham; etc., would choose to take the shorter route through Great Ellingham via Wroo Road; Long Street & Chequers Lane, rather than the more appropriate A11/B1077 route. This issue pertains to all vehicles but especially to HGVs.  No manner of signage to prevent this would work as this had already been proved, as the village often have HGVs ploughing along this route despite a 7.5Tonne restriction being in place. A physical prevention method must be used. Mr Betts asked the Committee to instruct officers to engage with NCC Highways to identify measures that would prevent any ‘through traffic’ from taking the Wroo Road; Long Street; Chequers Lane route.
