King Row, Shropham, Norfolk.
New stable block approved.
Following an initial planning appraisal En-Plan formulated the planing application drawings and mapping for this bespoke stable block in Shropham, Norfolk. Shropham is a small village located in the county of Norfolk, England. It is situated in the Breckland District, which is known for its rural landscapes and agricultural activities. Shropham is located approximately 13 miles (21 kilometers) southeast of the town of Thetford. It is surrounded by other nearby villages such as Snetterton, Great Hockham, and East Harling. Shropham is characterized by its rural setting, with open countryside, farmland, and woodland areas. The village itself has a small population and retains a traditional, peaceful atmosphere. Historical Significance: Shropham has historical significance and contains several listed buildings. St. Peter and St. Paul Church, a Grade I listed building, is a notable feature in the village. The church dates back to the 14th century and showcases architectural elements from different periods. Shropham is primarily a residential village with limited amenities. However, it is in close proximity to nearby towns and villages where residents can access a wider range of services, including shops, schools, healthcare facilities, and leisure activities. Shropham is well-connected by road. The A11, a major road linking Norwich to London, passes nearby, providing convenient access to other parts of Norfolk and beyond. Public transportation options, such as bus services, are available in the surrounding areas. The rural location of Shropham offers opportunities for outdoor activities and exploring the surrounding countryside. There are scenic walking routes, nature reserves, and picturesque landscapes to enjoy.
The Planning Application
Planning policies regarding stabling in the Borough of King's Lynn and West Norfolk can be found in the local planning documents and guidelines set by the local planning authority. In general, when considering the development of stables or equestrian facilities, the location of the stabling facility is an important consideration. It should be compatible with the surrounding area and minimize any adverse impacts on the landscape, environment, and neighboring properties. In this instance the Council found the loaction acceptable.
En-Plan ensured the scale and design of the stabling were appropriate for the site and blend in with the existing built environment. It should be of a suitable size and layout to accommodate the number of horses intended to be kept, ensuring their welfare and safety.
Access to the site was carefully planned to ensure safe and convenient transportation of horses and minimize any potential traffic impacts on the local road network. Adequate parking and maneuvering space was also provided and the application again deemed acceptabel in this frespect.
The impact on the local environment, including any potential noise, odor, or visual impacts, should be taken into account. Measures to mitigate and minimize these impacts may be required, such as appropriate landscaping, waste management, or drainage systems. In this instance a landscpaing startegy was submitted to the Council who found this accpetable.
The welfare of the horses is a key consideration. The stabling should provide appropriate shelter, ventilation, and access to food, water, and exercise areas. Compliance with animal welfare regulations and industry best practices is always required. At En-Plan we consider this teh most important consideration and all neccessary steps were taken at the design stage to enure the welfare of the animals is protetced.
