VALP Main Modifications

Representation ID: 2836

Received: 30/11/2019

Respondent: Mrs Sheilagh Rawlins

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

Maids moreton has been incorrectly categorised as a medium village, having only 4 of the 6 key criteria and thus the allocation of 'at least 170 houses' is in breach of of VALP paragraph 5.153 and is not legally compliant.

Failure to follow due process by avdc has resulted in a VALP which is not legally compliant and which includes allocations for development for which there is insufficient evidence of suitability.

AVDC has avoided questions and objections regarding site MMO006 by misleading residents, councils and parish councils.

Change suggested by respondent:

The site MMO006 should be deleted from the VALP

Full text:

As a regulation 19 objector (ref id 499), i was informed that AVDC had decided that the site mmo006 would be deleted from the VALP and hence, they were not required to answer all the objections and questions pertaining to it raised by the inspector or the residents.
We were further informed that the site had been erroneously included on the agenda for session hearing 34 and we were not notified that AVDC had altered their position on this.

The inexplicable alternation in hela v4 designating mmo006 as suitable for development is not based on any evidence since avdc were not able to give satisfactory details (minutes/dates/times of meetings) via our freedom of information requests, and have, therefore, contravened nppf paragraphs 158 and 182.
Further, there was no public consultation on the change to mmo006 in Hela v4 - avdc therefore failed to follow due process and have contravened Hela methodology paragraph 1.21
