VALP Proposed Submission

H1 Affordable housing

Representation ID: 1118

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Kier Property

Agent: Planning Potential

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

The current wording of Policy H1, which seeks a minimum of 25% affordable housing leaves ambiguity in what the Council will be seeking and subsequently gives rise to uncertainty. As such, we suggest that Policy H1 is amended to "for residential developments of 11 or more dwellings gross or sites of 0.3ha or more, the council will seek a minimum of 25% affordable homes on site, subject to viability". This will give confidence to developers looking to invest.

VALP Proposed Submission

H7 Dwelling sizes

Representation ID: 1943

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Kier Property

Agent: Planning Potential

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Whilst we encourage high quality design, in the absence of a policy providing descriptive reference, we consider that Policy H7 serves little purpose. This is not in accordance with paragraph 154 of the NPP and as such, we consider that Policy H7 is not sound and should be removed or elaborated to detail what the Council is seeking.

VALP Proposed Submission

4.161

Representation ID: 1944

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Kier Property

Agent: Planning Potential

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

In light of recent housing delivery performance within Newton Longville, where only 44% of the site allocations identified to come forwards within the 5 years have planning permission. The VALP in terms of housing delivery within this medium village is not considered as effective. In accordance with Policy S9 of the VALP, the Council should therefore consider proposals for alternative sites favourably, such as Land between Manor Farm and railway line to accommodate residential development of up to 300 dwellings.

VALP Proposed Submission

S2 Spatial Strategy for Growth

Representation ID: 2720

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Kier Property

Agent: Planning Potential

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Land between Manor Farm and Railway Line is not identified as a site allocation for residential development within Newton Longville. As such, we consider that the Local Plan is not positively prepared by not acknowledging this much-needed, suitable, available and achievable site to deliver up to 300 new homes. Especially in light of the unmet housing need in the LPA and the HMA. The VALP is therefore considered unsound and we suggest that S2 is amended to "the plan will make the provision for the delivery of a minimum of 27,400 new homes" to deliver beyond the established housing targets.

VALP Proposed Submission

S3 Settlement hierarchy and cohesive development

Representation ID: 2721

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Kier Property

Agent: Planning Potential

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

'Medium villages' of the 'Proposed settlement hierarchy and housing development' (Table 2, p.39 of the VALP), has a considerably lower housing target for Newton Longville than the previous local plan draft stage, from 154 to 48 units across the plan period. Given the rise in housing need and reduction in housing numbers, this appears counter initiative. The council have provided no evidence to justify the reduction in housing numbers considered appropriate in Newton Longville and as such, we consider this reduction unfounded.

VALP Proposed Submission

D2 Proposals for non-allocated sites at strategic settlements, larger villages and medium villages

Representation ID: 2722

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Kier Property

Agent: Planning Potential

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Whilst we agree with the principle of development within villages as set out in Policy D2, we consider a greater level of flexibility within the wording should be considered. It is well recognised that rural settlements inherently have more constrained footprints and natural and physical constraints than brownfield sites, consequently this wording precludes many sites with appropriate attributes to meet both the district and Newton Longville's housing needs. We urge the Council to reassess the wording of Policy D2 to plan more positively within the village context, and to do this now, to ensure the plan is effective.

VALP Proposed Submission

1.17

Representation ID: 2723

Received: 14/12/2017

Respondent: Kier Property

Agent: Planning Potential

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

In light of the increasing demand for housing within the Oxford-Cambridge corridor supported in the Autumn 2017 Budget, we consider that the VALP is not robust enough to support national infrastructure objectives. The implications of such commitments have not been considered adequately within the VALP and we consider that the plan needs to be more longsighted, considering the cumulative impacts of the infrastructure commitments at adoption stage rather than a piecemeal approach. The VALP should include a detailed policy and strategic objective on how they are going to commit to budget spending and contribute towards achieving 1,000,000 homes by 2050.
