A new Planning Application (Reference 2019/0521) has been submitted to South Norfolk District Council for the expansion of the UEA Sports Field Car Park adjacent to Colney Lane. Permissions have already been obtained for the expansion of the car park. These relate to the UEA Rugby Club development; but there are some significant differences between the latest application, and the previous permissions.
The search page for the application is here , insert the reference 2019/0521.
The Yare Valley Society has a number of concerns about the new application:
1. The impermeable surface proposed for the extra parking spaces will result in increased water run-off
2. Proposals for new lighting, and the impact of resulting light pollution on wildlife
3. The grossly inadequate arrangements for cyclists attempting to negotiate the proposed entrance to the car park. This is on the Norwich Pink Pedalway – a key commuting route to the Hospital and Research Park.
The Yare Valley Society has made formal objection to the proposals.
Please have a look at the proposals and send in your own comments.
