VALP Main Modifications

Representation ID: 2977

Received: 12/12/2019

Respondent: Arnold White Estates

Agent: Arrow Planning Ltd

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation:

The modified but low housing numbers in the Plan can only be justified if the Plan includes a commitment for an early review. That linkage is essential because the Plan has been prepared under NPPF 2012 which was allowed by Government as a 'stop-gap' measure. Full housing provision for the VALP would be some 48,000 homes over the Plan period using the 'standard method' so even the Plan is providing 30,233 homes that is some 18,000 homes short. The 'early review' commitment is now proposed for deletion so that Plan, based on the numbers now proposed, is unsound not being effective or consistent with national policy.

Change suggested by respondent:

As it stands the housing numbers are unsound. Either the 'early' Review is re-established (and the
consequence of not doing so reflected in a new Policy) or the housing numbers and allocations
should be increased significantly increased thus making the current version of the Plan unsound.

On behalf of my client Arnold White Estates Ltd I attach our representations on the forms provided. I draw your attention to the difficulty I have found in making these submissions. The Schedule of Modifications does not show the relevant page numbers in the Plan as proposed to be modified, which means cross-referencing is very difficult. For example, in the Modifications Schedule MM027 shows a modification to para 4.7 at p62. The Modified Plan shows this as para 4.9 at p67. The Modification Schedule and the Modified Plan should have the same page and paragraph numbers. Also, for example, there are two Policies D2. In the forms I have sought to group linked Main Modifications on one form where a combined response is then provided. Where necessary I have inserted a blank page to accommodate text that would not fit within the box provided. I trust all of my text will be captured.

VALP Main Modifications

Representation ID: 3053

Respondent: Clifton Kirstie (Bovis Homes Limited)

Agent: Define Planning & Design

Representation:

Bovis Homes welcomes the increase to the District's housing requirement and also welcomes the updated Objectively Assessed Need figures, as amended in MM001.

Full text:

Bovis Homes welcomes the increase to the District's housing requirement from a total requirement of 27,400 dwellings over the plan period 2013-2033 to a revised figure of 28,600 dwellings; as reflected in MM003. This is on the basis of an increased Full Objectively Assessed Need (FOAN) for Aylesbury Vale of 20,600 dwellings, which is based on a 17% uplift to the household projection-based estimate of housing need. As such, Bovis Homes also welcomes the updated Objectively Assessed Need figures, as amended in MM001.

It is therefore noted that Aylesbury Vale's housing requirement has become yet more challenging and that further development will be required to ensure that this will be met.

VALP Main Modifications

Representation ID: 3327

Received: 17/12/2019

Respondent: Willis Dawson Holdings Ltd

Agent: Pegasus Plannning Group

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation:

The proposed housing requirement of 28,600 homes does not respond to the concerns identified by the Inspector. It is necessary, as a minimum, to increase this to 30,345 homes, although this could well be greater depending upon the market signals uplift and the inclusion of the buffer within the housing requirement.

Change suggested by respondent:

All of the references to the housing requirement or objectively assessed need should be amended accordingly.
