Representation Summary:

The VALP contains no site-specific policies for existing commitments.
There is a need for a new Doctors Surgery to serve the village and outlying areas. The Practice Manager of the Rothchild Surgery has confirmed the need. There is no provision either within VALP or NP for this facility. It is a use which falls with a general D1 use.
For the reasons stated in the HBF submissions there is no justification for the reduced housing numbers and the identification of this site to provide for the part of the unmet need will contribute to the shortfall in housing numbers.
