Sprowston Neighbourhood Plan
The Sprowston Neighbourhood Plan (the Plan) is a new type of planning document based on views of our local community. This will be used to manage the delivery of our shared vision and objectives for development in our area. It is part of the Government’s new approach to planning, which aims to give local people more say about how their area is developed.
A draft Plan has been produced which focuses on four main areas of the community, known as community hubs, and includes Wroxham Road shopping precinct, Harrison’s Plantation, School Lane and the area encompassing Barkers Lane/Church Lane Playing field, Millennium Woodland, Wilks Farm Drive open space, allotments and cemetery. Draft Neighbourhood Plan
The idea is to encourage the improvement of these areas along the following lines:
Wroxham Road Shopping Precinct
In order to create a stronger more attractive neighbourhood and commercial centre, the transformation of a section of the Wroxham Road into a local retail centre with better vehicular and public access will be promoted. To improve safety in the area for both pedestrians and motorists, consideration will be given to new puffin crossings, cycle lanes, reduced speed limit, central reservation to narrow carriageway and echelon parking with ability to roll in and out in a forwards direction. The introduction of safe crossings in convenient locations will encourage shopping on foot and in turn create a pleasant social hub.
An area at Harrison’s Plantation, off Blue Boar Lane, is identified for a woodland activity park. The Woodland Park would be made accessible by creating additional cycle/walking facilities throughout the woodlands and a new connection from Plantation Drive through Cottage Plantation and across Blue Boar Lane. This could include a new puffin crossing on Blue Boar Lane. This would provide a useful recreation source for residents and in particular a place for young people to socialise and interact.
