"Members of the affected communities (those living within the Norwich urban area close to its edge, residents of Thorpe End and Rackheath, and those living in villages that would become much closer to the urban edge such as Great Plumstead, Little Plumstead, Salhouse, Wroxham and Spixworth) clearly express considerable strength of feeling against this large urban extension. …..the very large scale of the proposed change to this area would clearly have enormous effects on its character and the lives of those living in and around it. It will therefore be vital to achieve successful public engagement in the detailed planning of this long-term development through the AAP and ensure that the effects of the growth area are contained to the maximum possible extent and prevented from leading to any further intrusion into more tranquil areas of countryside closer to the Broads."
At last there is some acknowledgment of the impact that the proposed development will have on the communities around this so called N E Norwich growth area. It is therefore not surprising that SNUB has such massive support from local people and we have no doubts that this support will grow once the effects of the Inspectors' report finally sink in.
