Please see document 32735 Crest Nicholson Section 4 and comments below that support MM074 subject to minor changes proposed.

Crest Nicholson would recommend that Policy D-NLV001 Salden Chase is revised to reflect the latest position in terms of site delivery and the known delays. As set out in Section 4 of these representations, due to a recent refusal of the planning application for access into the Salden Chase site and the Section 106 agreement not being signed for the outline resolution to grant permission, we believe an accurate trajectory should allow for at least an additional year for the applicant to either reapply for the necessary access from Milton Keynes and/or appeal. This would therefore deliver the first units in 2024/25, rather than 2021/22 as suggested in main modifications. A tapering off of units towards the end of site delivery has also been assumed, as it is typical to have less outlets operational at the end years of a site. For these reasons we would recommend that the policy wording is revised as set out below:
'50 homes to be delivered 2018-2024 and 1,750 homes to be delivered from 2025-2033'.
