Stop the building of 29 houses on the Former David Rice Hospital Site in Drayton, Norwich

This petition had 409 supporters


We need urgent support to save the site of The Former David Rice Hospital in Drayton from having 29 houses built on it. This  piece of land overlooks the Wensum Valley, which is a protected SSSI site, and provides a beautiful habitat for a huge range of species of rare plants, protected trees , birds and animals. A rare and protected Lizard Orchid has grown on the site for the last two years , the first time in Norfolk for 60 years and the site is used daily by the community for walking and is one of the few beautiful green spaces left in the area. Building on this land will damage the ecology of the whole site and destroy the existing eco structure there, and having a knock on effect further down into the Wensum Valley. The Drayton Neighbourhood Plan made in 2016 states that "developement which would have an impact on the natural environment will not be permitted ....." but this seems to largely ignored . The existing infrastructure of roads , schools and doctors surgerys in Drayton cannot cope with the huge amount of new houses being built .There are already large developments agreed and being agreed for the area and it is not necessary to destroy this sensitive and valuable site .Please sign and  show Broadland District Council that they need to refuse this application and help us to save this land before it is too late .
