Representation Summary:

This allocation is likely to have a visual impact upon the setting of Hartwell House. Whilst policy criterion (h) is supported as it requires a landscape-led approach to development, we consider that the impact on the setting of this Grade I listed building is not fully accounted for within policy wording contrary to national policy for heritage assets.

Change suggested by respondent:

We therefore require criterion (v) to be amended to 'Protect the setting of Grade I listed Hartwell House, as well as the retention of a suitable setting for Grade II listed Hall End Farm house and Stoke Cottage'.
