Langham PC held a public meeting on Friday 20/07/12 to discuss Avada’s most recent application for the glassworks site on North Street.
The Parish Council formulated a response based on the opinions expressed at the meeting and the open planning meeting that followed it.
Langham PC response
Langham Parish Council wishes to register no objection or support for the scheme. We offer the following comments for consideration by the Planning Committee.
NNDC Planning Meeting
This application was discussed at the Planning Meeting in Cromer on Thursday 26th July. As expected, the offer of a financial incentive for affordable homes meant the approval of the application was a foregone conclusion. Our comments re the worker’s accommodation and increase in the housing stock in the village were presented to the committee but not discussed as they did not form a formal part of the application.
Our District Councillor, Peter Terrington, promised he would take up the issue of the worker’s accommodation with the Planning Officer.
In the meantime we have been looking at the NNDC Core Strategy and in particular Policy HO3 that restricts the siting of a proposed new development next to an existing one.
So we have alerted planning at NNDC to our concerns and will continue to press for the views of Langham parishioners and the Parish Council to be heard.
Avada have submitted yet another change to the planning application for the former glassworks.
The application can be found HERE. The documents are HERE.
The main changes are:
The plans will be available to view in the Parish Room on Friday 20th July from 7.00pm, there will be short time available for comments then the Parish Council will discuss their response to this application from 8.00pm.
A planning application has been submitted for the installation of a toilet unit at the Dome Trainer, Cockthorpe Road. The plans can be seen by clicking the LINK. Any observations on the plans should be submitted by 22/06/12.
The Parish Council chose to offer no comment on this application.
A planning application has been made and can be examined at PF/12/0479 the supporting documents are at PLANS. - you may need to be patient waiting for this page to open at NNDC.
The Parish Council responded by Friday 18 May. We objected to the plans as the proposed building would have been over dominant to the neighbouring cottages and the red brick construction was not appropriate in the conservation area.
The planning application has been withdrawn,
The Planning Committee visited the Glasshouse site on North Street on Thursday 26/04/12. This was not an open meeting but the Chairman of Langham Parish Council was allowed to make a statement on behalf of LPC. John said that LPC had chosen to make no comment on the revised application then gave a concise account of the concerns of the village as raised at the public meeting held on 9th March and we gave copies of a traffic survey conducted by John and Dave on 25/04/12 to back up our case.
The application continues.
The planning notices are now up in the village. The date for comments is the same as that for our meeting. We have been assured that our comments will still be accepted.

We have been informed that Avada wish to make some changes to their approved plans for re-developing the old Langham Glassworks. The Parish Council are keen that parishioners are able to see the new plans and comment on them before they are discussed at our next meeting at 19:00 in the Parish Rooms on Tuesday 13th March.
We have arranged a separate Public Meeting on Friday the 9th March, starting 7.30pm in the Parish Room to give Villagers the opportunity of seeing the new plans for the Glass works site. It will also be an opportunity for those on the LPC to gauge the feelings of Villagers, so as to guide us in our response to the NNDC on the following Tuesday. Please spread word of the meeting to encourage as many as possible to attend.
The plans will not be available to LPC until the end of February.
