Decision due on new Postwick church for Norwich Christian community
PUBLISHED: 15:30 28 August 2018 | UPDATED: 15:42 28 August 2018


Broadland District Council has received an application for a new church hall to be built close to the Postwick Hub junction.

If approved, the new church will stand to the east of Oaks Lane in Postwick and will serve Norwich and Norfolk’s Plymouth Brethren Christian community.

The application has been submitted by RLEPL Ltd, on behalf of the religious group, with the gospel hall intended to replace an existing meeting hall on Green Lane West in Rackheath.

Next week, the application will go before members of Broadland’s planning committee, with officers recommending it for approval - despite it being outside of settlement limits.

The officer’s report says: “Whilst there is a degree of conflict with the site being outside of the settlement limit, the proposal would provide a community use to meet an identified need within the area.”

There is, however, a possibility the application could be called-in for consideration by the secretary of state for communities and local government, with the health and safety executive (HSE) advising against its approval.

The report notes that the HSE has raised concerns that a high-pressure gas pipe running through the site could pose a safety hazard as the project is built.

Should the application be approved, the HSE can request the application be called-in by central government for its own consideration.

These concerns, however, were not enough to deter officers from the project, who have recommended it for full planning permission.

If the plans are approved, the applicants have said the hall will make it far easier for regional meetings with the group’s Waveney and mid-Norfolk communities - events that attract more than 500 people.

A submission to the application says: “The existing capacity of the Rackheath hall is 356 seats. We currently squeeze in by filling walkways with loose chairs, children sitting on parents’ laps and adults sitting tightly shoulder-to-shoulder, hence the reason and dire need for a new hall.”

The planning committee will meet on Wednesday, September 5.

Surely equates to 'we are currently breaking the law' ?

That would depend on what limitations were in place, the type of building, the number of escape routes and a whole other raft of detail.

Amazing how they can claim ‘benefit to the community’ when they preach ‘utter utter hatred’ of the world(community) ...about the only benefit to the community I can see is if they had a liquor store..
EB are pretty expedient with the truth,seems anything is justified if it furthers the interests of the brethren...

Plymouth Brethren Church finds new home as Postwick gospel hall plans are approved

Plymouth Brethren Church finds new home as Postwick gospel hall plans are approved
PUBLISHED: 14:20 05 September 2018 | UPDATED: 14:20 05 September 2018


A Christian group is to soon have a new place to call home, after approval was given to build a church close to the Postwick Hub.

Broadland District Council has granted planning permission to a company representing the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church for a gospel hall off Oaks Lane in Postwick.

The new hall, which was approved by the council’s planning committee, will serve as home for the Norwich members of the Plymouth Brethren community.

It is also due to serve the church’s wider membership, by also hosting the county’s regional meetings, which also include members of the groups in Waveney and mid-Norfolk.

These events attract more than 500 people, which the current hall in Rackheath struggles to accommodate.

The gospel hall has been designed in “a barn style”, featuring red brick and composite timber.

The plans also include parking for 174 cars and end the group’s long search for a new home.
