Representation ID: 2789

Received: 29/11/2019

Respondent: Mr Jeremy Bloss

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The Habitats Regulations Assessment does not mention SSSI Foxcote (Otherwise known as Foscote) Reservoir at all yet we have site allocation MMO006 that will bring housing and development to within a couple of hundred metres of this SSSI. There has therefore been no assessment on any possibly impacts on this SSSI. Therefore this would make the Habitats Regulation Assessment unsound in relation to site MMO006

Change suggested by respondent:

As the impact of MMO006 on SSSI Foxcote Reservoir does not appear to have been assessed I believe it is unsound and not legally compliant and therefore MMO006 should be removed from the VALP
