By coincidence, I was earwigging a conversation in the Blakeney Hotel on the subject. I took the opportunity to ask if I could be party to it and learn. Basically what I was told by one of the planners involved on a consultative basis was: There are a large number of housing estates planned on either side of this new road. These new estates will not be joined by continuous roads in order to stop rat runs and commutes via driving from estate to estate. In fact there will be minimal entrances to said estates. Hence the need for a Distributor Road. A road to empty the estates in a morning and fill them up at night. Excile is wholly correct it is not intended or designed to be a bypass. The original 7 or 8 roundabouts will be added to as the housing developments come to completion. A bit like the new one on the Stalham to Wroxham road.
I think it is pretty safe to say that within very few years if you cross Wroxham Bridge from Stallham and Coltishall Bridge from North Walsham you will be in if not Urban Norwich it's suburbs.

According to this booklet that is worth reading, the plan for Norwich is 22000 new homes by 2026.

We looked a homes in Broadland 10 years ago. Glad we bought at Blakeney.

This has been known for years, the go ahead for the NDR, was the go ahead for the biggest house development ever north of the city. Don't joke when you say Wroxham could be on the edge of the urban sprawl of Norwich.
Lots and lots of Lolly to be made by the developers, some of whom have owned the land for years. Not that this would have influenced the county and district councils in their pigheadedness to push it through regardless of rising costs.

I was sent a report a few weeks ago of which Iv'e copied
these extracts:-
a Full Council motion was agreed to continue the delivery of the NDR as quickly as possible and to commission a report to complete a link across the Wensum Valley from the A1067 to the A47. The NDR is currently progressing through its public examination.
Until an announcement is made, potentially as part of the Government’s Autumn Statement in December, it is not possible to assess the route options with confidence, as the implications of the A47 being upgraded are significant, particularly in relation to the junction strategy for that section of the A47.

Even if it were to eventually be joined from the A47 to A47 it would still be an urban distributor road not a bypass. With a dozen roundabouts you will be queuing every few minutes. With thousands of new houses it will be no different from the present ring road, clogged!
I have to say I do feel sorry for residents of villages south of the Bure. You only have to look at Sprowston which was quite rural just a few years ago. I am afraid Salhouse, Woodbastwick Ranworth, and South Walsham will very soon be fighting on the front line.

Capt Brian,
We may well have been speaking to the same person as I got pretty much the same information. Although there will be many people working on this on all aspects.
The point about not completing it to effectively restrict it's use is probably key here.
I hope for the sake of a few Wensum Valley villages that it is completed because people will use it as a bypass regardless of the roundabouts and no doubt speed restrictions. Those that do will go through one or other of those villages and over their small, usually old bridges to complete the link. That will not help the quality of life there one little bit.
From a personal point of view I live a bit too far out to be affected but I know a lot of people in the other nearer villages that are very concerned about this, and rightly so.
