Representation:

Within the wider parish of Brundish, there is a church and a village hall only. Within the proposed hamlet of Brundish, there are no services or facilities. The green would not be available for housing development whether within the hamlet boundary or not. Excluding the green enables a proper analysis of development potential and results in 2 groups of dwellings – those at The Close and those at Crown Corner. The Close may be deemed to be a cluster and the remaining houses at Crown Corner would not reach the threshold of a cluster.

1. BRUNDISH
2. Paragraph 08.03 of the JLP states:
‘…the settlement hierarchy assesses the sustainability of settlements themselves rather than the wider parish.’
3. Within the wider parish of Brundish, there is a church and a village hall. Within the proposed hamlet of Brundish, there are no services or facilities.
4. The Topic Paper Settlement Hierarchy 2019 incorrectly scores Brundish as 6. In fact, even taking in the wider parish, it should score 2 and for the proposed hamlet itself, it is 0.
5. There is no longer a pub and there is no longer a play area. A local community broadband provider enables broadband access. It is 4.7 km to the nearest Core Village (Stradbroke) and 1.82km to the nearest Hinterland Village (Wilby). From the proposed hamlet to the village hall it is 1.3km and 1.85km to the church. The B1118 is unlit with no footpaths.
6. The proposed boundary takes in the green. The green would not be available for housing development whether within the hamlet boundary or not. Excluding the green enables a proper analysis of development potential and results in 2 groups of dwellings – those at The Close and those at Crown Corner. The Close may be deemed to be a cluster and the remaining houses at Crown Corner would not reach the threshold of a cluster.

Respondent: Brundish Parish Council

Representation:

The proposed hamlet boundary for Brundish should be removed entirely, as the reliance on private cars and the difficulty of assessing services by any other means, makes development of this isolated location patently unsustainable. NPPF paragraph 78 “where there are groups of smaller settlements, development in one village may support services in a village nearby”
