Local Plan 2015-2030 Preferred Options for Consultation

Policy DM7: Land at Mountnessing Roundabout (Former Scrapyard), Roman Road

Representation ID: 1011

Received: 20/09/2013

Respondent: Development Securities PLC

Agent: RPS Planning & Development

Representation Summary:

Development Securities do not take issue with the allocation of the site for B-use employment purposes. However, concern about the lack of flexibility within the policy, to allow for other employment generating uses to take place on the site. The policy should provide greater flexibility because of:

- Planning history
- Market demand
- Policy objectives
- Site location

Suggest that a final sentence be added to Policy DM7 to read:

"Other forms of economic development (to include Use Classes D2 or Sui Generis) may be acceptable provided they satisfy all of the above criteria".

Local Plan 2015-2030 Preferred Options for Consultation

Policy CP10: Green Belt

Representation ID: 1012

Received: 20/09/2013

Respondent: Development Securities PLC

Agent: RPS Planning & Development

Representation Summary:

The site at Mountnessing Roundabout (107) should be deleted from Green Belt.

The most appropriate time to review Green belt boundaries is during preparation of a Local Plan (NPPF). The site has a live consent for a substantial amount of built floorspace, plus is proposed to be allocated in the Plan for employment development. Consequently, there is a strong prospect that a sizeable development will come forward on the site, in which case the site will not remain "permanently open". In light of the sites history and planned allocation there in no purpose in retaining the sites Green belt status.
