and Breckland meet on site to review the whole development and the impacts
that it is having

outside the settlement boundary and represents a further overdevelopment of the
site which the council previously objected to.
3PL/2018/1550 Land at Herne Lane – to comment that the proposed style of the
houses was too suburban and something more in keeping with the rural setting
should be used, that the affordable housing should reflect the style of the market
houses, the gated entrance should be removed and replaced with post and rails if
an entrance was needed and the suggested site name of the Hamptons was
totally inappropriate and something reflecting the location should be chosen.
