1.12

Representation ID: 853

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Conservation Board

Representation Summary:

The Chilterns Conservation Board supports and welcomes the Council's approach of accommodating some unmet needs of the local authorities in southern Buckinghamshire, which are highly constrained by the Chilterns AONB. In this important way, the Council is demonstrating good practice under the Duty to Cooperate, and its Duty of Regard to conserving and enhancing the natural beauty of the AONB under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (section 85).

Respondent: Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Conservation Board

Representation Summary:

The Chilterns Conservation Board supports the capacity-based approach.
This is better than imposing a mathematically-derived percentage growth on settlements, blind to their constraints. It allows for a distinction to be made between AONB and AONB-villages. It demonstrates regard to conserving and enhancing the natural beauty of the AONB; a legal requirement under Section 85 of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000.

Representation ID: 866

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Conservation Board

Representation Summary:

The Chilterns Conservation Board supports and welcomes the Council's approach of recognising that the local authorities in southern Buckinghamshire are significantly constrained by the Chilterns AONB. In this important way, the Council is demonstrating good practice under the Duty to Cooperate, and its Duty of Regard to conserving and enhancing the natural beauty of the AONB under the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 (section 85).

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

The coverage of AONB in the vision and strategic objectives does not give 'great weight' to the AONB (as it should under NPPF para 115). It is mentioned once (in relation to Aylesbury being a tourism base for exploring the area) and not at all in the rural areas section of the vision. The Chilterns AONB is an iconic nationally protected landscape, which attracts 55 million visits a year and Aylesbury Vale residents benefit from the health and well-being benefits of having the Chilterns AONB on their doorstep.

Legally compliant? Yes

Representation Summary:

Chilterns Conservation Board would like to see the setting of the Chilterns AONB referred to in the objectives. Development in the setting of the AONB can harm the AONB. The setting of the AONB is the area within which development and land management proposals, by virtue of their nature, size, scale, siting, materials or design could have an impact on the natural beauty and special qualities of the AONB. Please see the Chilterns Conservation Board's Position Statement on Development Affecting the Setting of the Chilterns AONB available here www.chilternsaonb.org/conservation-board/planning-development.html which contains advice on harm and principles for avoiding harm.

S3 Settlement hierarchy and cohesive development

Representation ID: 890

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Conservation Board

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

The policy contains two criteria giving special reasons to avoid development in the countryside. A third criterion on the setting of the AONB could usefully be added. Very careful consideration needs to be exercised for any expansion below the scarp slope of the Chilterns. Views out of the AONB from key viewpoints e.g. Coombe Hill, Ivinghoe Beacon and the Ridgeway National Trail, are some of the most important views in the Chilterns, central to the public's enjoyment of the AONB. These are nationally important places on a National Trail, which should be protected for current and future generations to enjoy.

Table 2 Proposed settlement hierarchy and housing development

Representation ID: 894

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Conservation Board

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Settlement Hierarchy should make a distinction between AONB and non-AONB villages. Settlements in the AONB or its setting should have special consideration e.g. Ivinghoe, Edlesborough, Pitstone, Aston Clinton, Marsworth, Cheddington, Stoke Mandeville and Weston Turville. More weight should be given to population size as well as facilities e.g. >2000 population plus key criteria. It does not make sense for Ivinghoe, a village of only 722 people and constrained by the AONB, to be a 'larger village'. It has the smallest population of any 'larger village' and is smaller than Chardon which at 862 people is a 'smaller village'.
