Local Plan 2015-2030 Preferred Options for Consultation

S2: Amount and Distribution of Residential Development 2015-2030

Representation ID: 617

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Anderson Group

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

1. The amount of housing growth is unjustified in the absence of credible evidence.
2. The distribution of growth is unjustified because the evidence underpinning the preferred
growth option is unsound
3. The spatial strategy is not fully justified in light of the alternatives, it is undeliverable, and it is not compliant with the National Planning Policy Framework
4. Blackmore is a Larger Village in the settlement hierarchy but would only be apportioned a negligible amount of growth commensurate with the Smaller Villages simply because itdoes not have as much brownfield land as the other Larger Villages in accordance with the
preferred spatial strategy. This approach is unsustainable and unjustified.

Bidwells recommends that the Council revisits its evidence base to objectively assess the level of requisite growth, and then plan accordingly at the earliest opportunity.

Sustainability Appraisal

Representation ID: 626

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Anderson Group

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The Councils LDP is subject to a SA but it only assesses the implications of developing those sites which accord with its preferred spatial strategy. Furthermore, it does not provide measurable criteria by which the relative sustainability credentials of the selected sites may be assessed. Indeed there is no comparative assessment of the sustainability of the sites which sit outside of the spatial strategy. There is therefore no means by which to benchmark the Council's approach.
Bidwells has conducted a SA of the land south of Redrose Lane, and east of Nine Ashes Road Blackmore (SHLAA site G070).
