VALP Main Modifications

Representation ID: 2982

Received: 12/12/2019

Respondent: Arnold White Estates

Agent: Arrow Planning Ltd

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? Not specified

Representation Summary:

In response to overall housing numbers (MM001, 002, 003, 010) breaking the link between
what are low housing numbers with the commitment for an 'early review' is unsound (NPPF
2012 para 182 'justified', 'consistent with national policy').
A Plan based on maintaining that link could only be sound if the early Review was a
commitment. The reason for this change is the administrative inconvenience of the abolition of AVDC and
its replacement Buckinghamshire Council from April 2020. This is not significant reason to
change 'early' to '5 years from adoption'

Change suggested by respondent:

MM026, and consequent changes
The 'early review' commitment should be reintroduced into Policy S9 by the following amendment
Irrespective of the above criteria, the Plan will be urgently reviewed, not least to reflect the
need for higher housing numbers to reach the stage of another Submitted Plan (currently
Regulation 22) within 2 years of the adoption of this Plan.

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: 3459

Received: 17/12/2019

Respondent: Carter Jonas - Associate SWMK Consortium

Representation Summary:

It is considered that there is sufficient unconstrained land available on the edge of the strategic settlements, including at Milton Keynes, to accommodate future housing needs. It is acknowledged that a new settlement may be identified and assessed as an option to meet future development needs, but there should be no commitment to take the new settlement option forward in any future review of VALP.

The proposed change in Main Modification MM004 deleting the reference to a commitment to consider a new settlement option through an early review is supported.

Change suggested by respondent:

SWMK Consortium submitted representations and hearing statements and participated at previous hearing sessions relevant to these main modifications.

Agent: Arrow Planning Ltd

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The requirement for an early review should not be deleted and should instead be reinstated. The Housing Numbers for AVDC are set to rise under the Standard
Methodology, and the time elapsed since the HEDNA was prepared. Therefore, an early review should still be proposed to address the increased housing need. This would be the most appropriate strategy, as required by the NPPF.

Change suggested by respondent:

Reinstatement of the commitment to an early review;

Representation Summary:

object to the proposed modification to the VALP to delete reference
to AVDC undertaking an early review
the proportion of the revised housing requirement which is to meet the District's
own housing need falls substantially below meeting local housing need calculated using
the Government's standard method (1,423 dpa). Thus, the VALP will not address housing
affordability pressures across the Housing Market Area (HMA)
does not reflect Oxford - Cambridge arc
The delays in progressing the adoption of the VALP, and therefore the timing of a review
being completed, and the current uncertainty regarding the future of plan-making within
Buckinghamshire associated with the transition to a unitary authority

Respondent: Gladman Developments Ltd

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

It
will be necessary for the Buckinghamshire Council to undertake reviews of the various Local Plans
which would result in the preparation of a plan covering the whole area. Urge the Council to reinstate reference to undertaking an early review.
This is of particular importance given the
authority falls within the Cambridge to Oxford Growth Arc and the Government is seeking to
deliver a transformational scale of growth within this corridor in the period up to 2050.

Change suggested by respondent:

to reinstate reference to undertaking an early review.
