Representation Summary:

Criterion M states that "Land at Manor Farm (BIE022) shall not be developed until the Eastern Link Road (South) through the adjacent site WTV018 (Woodlands) has been delivered and opened to traffic." Mactaggart and Mickel objects to this policy criterion, as it considers that it could lead to significant delays in delivering new homes on Land at Manor Farm.

Change suggested by respondent:

Criterion M should be reworded as described below (additions in [brackets], deletions in *asterisks*):
m. [New homes at Land] at Manor Farm (BIE022) shall not be [occupied] *developed* until the Eastern Link Road (South) through the adjacent site WTV018 (Woodlands) has been delivered and opened to traffic. A planning application on site BIE022 must demonstrate that Flood Risk Exception Test Part 2 (See VALP Flood Risk Sequential Test 2017) has been met by a developer. The Exception Test Part 2 will be supported by a site specific Flood Risk Assessment (FRA) to support a planning application and shall demonstrate that access and egress from and to the development, via the ELR and on-site access routes, will be safe and operational in times of flooding. The main access to the site shall be from the ELR (S) and not from Broughton Lane. The FRA must meet all the recommendations for the site in the Aylesbury Vale SFRA Level 2 (2017) and VALP Policy I4.
