A woodland plot within Crabbetts Marsh on the outskirts of the attractive Broadland village of Horning. The plot fronts a dyke leading to the River Bure and measures approximately 60ft x 60ft subject to measured survey.
Having reffered to the Broads Authority Planning department they advise us that the plot has very little potential for any new use or development, this is informed by the relevant planning policies including Site Specific Policy HOR6, which states:
This area will be protected for its landscape and nature conservation value. It is also recognized that the access here is a major constraint.
All forms of new built development will be firmly resisted, as will the stationing of vehicles, caravans and boats. This includes sheds and similar structures; such engineering works as raised ground levels, road building, creation of moorings, cuts, paved tracks, hard-standings or quay headings. (In this context the stationing of boats excludes short-term halts of waterborne craft in the course of navigation.)
Acceptable uses are likely to be those which are compatible with its semi-natural and undeveloped state, such as intermittent and very low level private leisure use.
The site is also covered by a Tree Preservation Order (reference ba/2009/0104/tpo) and therefore any work to the trees on site requires prior consent from the Broads Authority.
We would suggest that the plot will idealy suit a buyer looking to conserve the area for its landscape and nature conservation value. Planning applications for use as a leisure/mooring plot would be likely to result in refusal and any built development would be firmly resisted.
