VALP Main Modifications

Representation ID: 2778

Received: 17/12/2019

Respondent: AOTRA

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

Policy T5 should be further amended to continue the "operational parking only" policy within Inner Aylesbury Relief Road and to reflect the recommendation SM3 of the Parking Strategy for Aylesbury Town Centre, paragraph 4.222 should be deleted, and the reference to parking strategy removed from Policy D7.

Change suggested by respondent:

Paragraph 4.222 should be deleted.
Add the words "replacement public" after the words "provision for" and delete the words "in accordance with the council's car parking strategy" in Policy D7.
Add the following to Policy T5:- "Inside the Aylesbury Inner Relief Road dedicated on-site parking provision associated with all development proposals should be restricted to that required for cars and other vehicles that are regularly and necessarily involved in the operation or land use. This will include collecting and delivering goods, the setting down of passengers, the storing or servicing of vehicles where this is an integral part of the operation or land use and parking by residents and their visitors. However, it excludes general customer and employee parking. Accordingly lower non-residential parking standards than those set out in Appendix B(Table 2) will normally be permitted."

Representation Summary:

Parking is going to be an issue for years ahead despite climate change activists and must be included in all developments at appropriate levels. People need to feel safe using them.

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? Not specified

Representation Summary:

The Consortium object to this additional policy wording. The principle of rear parking courts can be an appropriate approach even when other parking options exist. The consideration of their suitability is a consideration for the planning application stage. The modification is too restrictive.

VALP Main Modifications consultation
Response from Wendover Parish Council

The Wendover Parish council have the following comments with regard to the main VALP modifications:
We are pleased to note that:
Much of the VALP remains unchanged for Wendover in that the 132 houses in Wendover have been completed and there are still 1000 in Halton for this plan. There are points we have considered that are the important features of the modifications which have a bearing on Wendover.
WPC are encouraged and in particular support the following points:
 S3 which gives more protection against coalescence and retention of individuality of settlements.

 D-Hal 003 - Where Halton the Sports and Heritage sites are to be retained (p143) and 50% green infrastructure has been specified (p145)

 D7 / E5- Promotes support for local centres (considers effects of out of town shopping etc to be detrimental)

 D8 - Aylesbury Town Centre action plan which details how to improve it in a positive manner (p181)

 H4 - Considers replacement dwellings in the countryside will be permitted if the same size as before, but not bigger

 H6b - Considers Care needs and that the definitions have been revised and are generally good (p206)

 T5 - Vehicle parking has been updated removing small garages as spaces as it is recognised that they are often used for storage not cars! (p246)

 T7 - Refers to electric charging points, at least one per new house, 10% of bays for flats. Employment sites and long stay points to be provided, 1 per 25 spaces, and charging times/ wattage are specified (p250)

 BE4, section9 - more weight is given to protecting these.

 NE1 - Protected sites has given biodiversity more weight and is more specific which is to be encouraged (p266)

 NE4 - AONB is more protected

 NE5 - Landscape - visual impact to be minimised, avoid loss of important views, noise effects etc

 NE7 - Specifies the importance of agricultural land of quality 1, 2 and 3a which should be retained.

 NE9 - Trees etc strengthened to refuse developments adjacent, adding buffers and joining up fragmented areas of woodland with new planting.

 C3 - Uses of natural resources highlights renewable energy and the current issues with water supply and sewage (new reservoirs required?).

 C4 /I1- Green infrastructure has been strengthened and is more precise. I1 also considers playing pitches and open spaces following a new assessment in 2017/19 and their importance management and possible need for extra provision. (also I2 & Appendix D)

 I5 - Water resources consultation required for large developments. We are in a water stress area!

 Appendix B - Deals with parking standards which are largely unchanged save for the garage issue.

 p33 - Halton development effects on the Chilterns Beech woods in terms of recreational use and air quality, and Natural England have asked for clarification, but in general are happy with modifications in line with their comments in the previous consultation.


These points are all supported by WPC as they strengthen the case for sensitive developments which consider their affects on the surrounding landscape, facilities and wildlife.
