Belmore Park (another new development planned for the the North East Growth Triangle) is yet another piece of the jigsaw which fits neatly into the southern edge of the growth triangle on its boundary with Thorpe St Andrew, Heartsease and Woodside Road.
To quote from their website "The development plan will aim to seamlessly connect the new settlement to the existing communities of Thorpe St Andrew, Heartsease and Woodside Road, aiming to complement the existing communities, build on inherent local characteristics and create a true sense of place."
The Greater Norwich Development Partnership's Joint Core Strategy has given landowners and developers the opportunity to propose new development virtually anywhere and everywhere within the Old Catton, Sprowston, Rackheath, Thorpe St Andrew Growth Triangle.
Certain parts of Broadland have been protected by the JCS and will have only limited growth. For example, the JCS suggests it is important to prevent coalescence between the villages of Brundall and Blofield. "Although Brundall has two railway stations and relatively frequent bus services to Norwich there are (apparently!) more sustainable options for accommodating new housing developments in the Norwich Policy Area; consequently modest housing allocation of about 50 dwellings is proposed." No prizes for correctly guessing where one of the Broadland councillors who is the main champion for the Joint Core Strategy lives.......... nimbyism? What nimbyism?
