Salhouse Neighbourhood Plan

The Localism Act (2011) provides for Neighbourhood forums and Parish Councils to establish general planning policies for the development and use of land in a neighbourhood. These are described legally as 'Neighbourhood Development Plans' and, once approved as complying with appropriate rules and adopted at a referendum, the local planning authority is under a legal duty to bring them into force.

The aim of your Neighbourhood Planning Group, Salhouse 2020+, is to try to ensure that Salhouse remains a thriving rural village retaining its unique village identity, and remains separate from greater Norwich.  It seeks through planned and selective new development and enhancements to facilities for residents and visitors to become and to be maintained as a thriving, village community for people of all ages that is safe and pleasant to live in and that can support its local shop(s), pub, school and a range of other existing and future village assets and businesses now and in perpetuity.

We are considering these objectives

1. The identity of Salhouse is enhanced by inclusion of a village focus - a green, community woodland and/or other facility/facilities

2. The community to become well connected by mobile telecommunication and improved broadband

3. A shop(s) and post office, public house, hairdresser, playing field, play equipment, school and Jubilee hall are all retained and supported to provide a thriving village

4. The village serves all generations with facilities including those for the younger and older residents

5. The majority of land within the parish boundary remains in agricultural use to retain the historic and current identity of the community

6. Planned residential development is allowed on specified sites to enable the key objectives of this plan to be met, with such development appropriate to a non-urban setting, avoiding inappropriate ‘field by field’ development, which has become prevalent throughout the country

7. Planned commercial development is identified to allow the development of appropriate businesses providing jobs and services within Salhouse

8. Key buildings and features important to the village of Salhouse are identified for retention and protection where appropriate for their setting

9. Opportunities for cycle/foot/bridle paths linking key parts of village are investigated for the use of local people and tourists alike
