The Greater Norwich Development Partnership are one of the stakeholders in the NRP Innovation Centre and yet their Joint Core Strategy has declared the North East Triangle of Norwich as the major growth area for housing with at minimum 10,000 homes. Where is the sense in building so many homes on the opposite side of Norwich to where you are creating thousands of jobs?
But when Broadland District Council see nothing wrong in suggesting that the extra cost of building homes to higher levels of sustainability on the proposed 'Exemplar' site at Rackheath should be funded out of the £10m allocated by the previous government for infrastructure projects for the proposed eco-town then our world in Broadland really has gone mad. So the tax payer is to subsidise the developer in order for him to sell the homes at an attractive and affordable price? People will be queuing up to snap up the bargains whilst the developer still makes his fortune thanks to the taxpayer.
