Draft Local Plan

Settlement Category 3: Larger Villages

Representation ID: 15304

Received: 04/05/2016

Respondent: Thorndon Park Golf Club Ltd.

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

In Paragraph 5.33 the Local Authority proposes no amendment to the Green Belt boundaries surrounding larger villages. However, it is quite clear that there are a few small sites which if promoted for development would not have any impact on the character of the Borough or its important larger villages and which could make an essential contribution to the longer term needs of the Borough.

We suggest inserting the following words:

"Where a small scale development is considered appropriate as logical rounding off without harm to the character of the village, any such site will be considered for development where it is brought forward early in the Plan Period".

Draft Plan Spatial Strategy

Representation ID: 15305

Received: 04/05/2016

Respondent: Thorndon Park Golf Club Ltd.

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

Despite having acknowledged the difficulties of meeting housing needs without the release of Green Belt sites, the Plan proposes no amendment to the Green Belt boundaries surrounding larger villages.

In the context that the housing needs are significantly greater than the Local Authority have been able to deliver in recent years, it will be sensible for small sites within the larger villages to contribute to overall housing provision and that there are opportunities for Greenfield urban extensions within the Green Belt to assist in overall housing delivery without demonstrable harm to the Green Belt or the character of the villages.
