Representation Summary:

We support the allocation of housing to the strategic settlements but believe that additional housing should be allocated to Wendover.

In particular we propose that a minor amendment be made to the Green Belt boundary at Bank Farm which would allow existing farm buildings and paddock land which are enclosed on three sides by existing buildings to be allocated for housing development.

We support the proposal for the allocation of housing to the strategic settlements, however, we contend that it is important that additional housing is allocated to Wendover as at present the town, despite its strong sustainability credentials, is allocated no housing other that the redevelopment of RAF Halton, which does not relate well to the services provided in the heart of the town.

In particular we wish to put forwards Bank Farm for potential development through a combination of site allocation and minor amendment to the Green Belt boundary.

Bank Farm is situated in the heart of Wendover. The farm comprises a range of buildings arranged around two yards. Immediately to the south of those yards is an area of paddock land which has development on three sides, comprising the farm buildings to the north and residential development to the east and west. The paddock and a small number of the farm buildings are located in the Green Belt, but outside of the AONB, the boundary of which is the southern perimeter of the paddock.

We propose that the Green Belt boundary be amended such that the paddock and the farm buildings are taken out from the Green Belt with the new boundary of the Green Belt being the existing southern boundary of the paddock, corresponding with the boundary of the AONB. This minor amendment will form a more natural and more defensible boundary to the Green Belt, removing the anomaly evident from the protrusion towards the farm buildings. Amendment of the Green Belt boundary would allow the land to be allocated for development in a sustainable location in the heart of Wendover, with existing development on three sides. Development would still have to be sensitive to the context of adjacent listed buildings and conservation area and a well designed scheme would help to enhance the appearance of this area.

The area proposed to be removed from the Green Belt through the minor amendment to the Green Belt boundary is shown in red on the attached plan.
