VALP Proposed Submission

S2 Spatial Strategy for Growth

Representation ID: 1085

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: SEGRO Plc

Agent: Turley Associates

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? No

Representation Summary:

There is clear lack of substance to justify Aylesbury Vale District meeting the purported 'unmet needs' of the southern Buckinghamshire authorities with respect to employment land provision. More specifically it is evident that AVDC is unlikely to meet the B8 requirements of the FEMA on account of its poor strategic connectivity and with explicit reference to the District being unlikely to meet warehousing requirements over the plan period. The portfolio of sites available are limited and as set out in the Turley representation for SEGRO Plc, are unlikely to be deliverable. The site selection and sustainability appraisal process is flawed.

Full summary:
Given the lack of substance to justify Aylesbury District meeting the purported 'unmet needs' of the southern authorities with respect of employment lands provision.
More specifically, it is evident that AVDC is unlikely to meet the B8 requirements of the FEMA, on account of its poor strategic connectivity and with explicit reference to the District being unlikely to meet warehousing requirements over the plan period. Further the portfolio of sites available are limited, and as set out above, are unlikely to be deliverable. The site selection and sustainability assessment process is therefore flawed and unsound.
We do not consider that the Buckinghamshire Authorities have appropriately co-operated on strategic priorities, especially with regard to employment needs, and have subsequently failed to ensure that such priorities are 'properly co-ordinated and clearly reflected in individual Local Plans'.1
Therefore, we suggest that AVDC and WDC review the position being adopted prior to the submission of the respective Local Plans to the Secretary of State to ensure that both plans fully reflect 'an economic vision and strategy for their extra which positively and proactively encourages sustainable economic growth'1
As such, as currently drafted, the emerging Wycombe and Aylesbury Local Plans would not result in a final position 'where plans are in place to provide the land and infrastructure necessary to support current and projected future levels of development' as required under paragraph 181 of the Framework and fail to meet the tests of soundness with regard to employment needs under paragraph 182 of the Framework.

D5 Provision of employment land

Representation ID: 2666

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: SEGRO Plc

Agent: Turley Associates

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? No

Representation Summary:

We note that despite AVDC being the highest tier settlement, reference is only made at paragraph 4.10 of the Plan to the Enterprise Zones at Silverstone, Westcot and Arla/ Woodlands. There is the potential for employment provision to come forward through a number of the strategic sites around Aylesbury contained within the Local Plan. We therefore consider that there are questions over the appropriateness of these sites for employment alongside timescales for their delivery. We raise particular concerns over the sites identified which have been long term allocations and where employment development has yet to come forward.
