Well, l will hazard a guess. The loss of facilities - shop, cafe etc.  Facilities which serve passing tourists , those mooring up for the night etc.  And these create a reason for tourists to stop  and visit the other small businesses and those along the road to Ludham.  There is also a camping or caravan site at this location whose customers I assume also use the shops, the café etc.    Two holiday lets simply provide accommodation for two families.

The letters from the various objectors make for interesting reading. From neigbours to the parish council, a County Councillor to the BA's Landscape Architect, they are all against this. Looking at the plans, the two "holiday lets" are raised so high as to enable car-parking underneath. The height will overwhelm everything else around, including (probably) the bridge.

There are plenty of holiday lets in the near vicinity. No case has been made for any more. Apparently, if the accommodation is offered for letting for 12 months and it is shown there is no demand, the restriction on letting-only can be lifted and the premises can be used for permanent accommodation. How much would that increase the value of the properties, I wonder. This, it seems, is exactly what happened to a neighbouring property, built for letting but now used for full-time living. If there was no demand for letting established for that property, surely there is still no demand now.

just to clarify to all of you who without the correct information and as I own a business on the site the plans are for the buildings to be taken down and a new shop and café put in its place .This is due to the original buildings being in a bad state. The flats/accommodation will be additions to the site which in my eyes can only improve the areas footfall.

I was posting at the same time as the last post. The information I have is taken from the planning documents. I don't have a problem with the area being 'smartened up', but it should be done with sensitivity to the location. What is currently proposed will, IMO, totally destroy the ethos and ambience of that location.

Thanks for the detailed info Mr P. Perhaps the other member commenting could also have posted some links to enable more accurate comment,  especially as we now realise he has a very specific interest!

As  I said in my own brief post above, I was making a guess about objections as a quick response to his comment.

Having looked at the plans I totally agree that the site would be changed dramatically by the height of these buildings.  I was already aware there is no known need for further holiday accommodation so  should have added that to my post.

Very interesting to read how the lack of success as holiday accommodation can then lead to the property being given full residential status ,  and thus a lot more value!  It never ceases to amaze me how planning rules are often so easily manipulated !

Should anyone be interested, the planning documents etc can be found here. (if the BA website plays ball!)

Thank you for posting the links. I really should have thought about adding them myself, but I am a tad destracted - hobbling about with a recurrence of a dodgy ankle problem. Thank goodness the boat is out of the water and time afloat is not being affected!

Pally - I really hate disagreeing with you, but what ambience or ethos surrounds that area??? It looks what it is and to suggest it is much else, is stretching the imagination somewhat!

Don't worry though, there are probably bats in the old building and water voles in the dykes at the rear and that will stifle everything for the foreseeable future!!
