VALP Main Modifications

MM010

Representation ID: 3447

Received: 17/12/2019

Respondent: LDA Design

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Representation Summary:

The overall increase in the housing requirement from 27,400 to 28,600 is supported. In
particular the addition of text stating, 'at least' to clarify that this housing requirement figure
does not represent an upper limit is supported. For consistency it is suggested that the
housing requirement figures listed for each of the sustainable locations listed in Policy S2 a - j
should also be preceded by 'at least'.

MM079

Representation ID: 3449

Received: 17/12/2019

Respondent: LDA Design

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The phrase 'small-scale areas of land' is taken to refer only to part 1 of the policy, but the inclusion of the 'and' implies it is now part of the test for both parts 1 and 2. This is confusing and contradicts part e. of the policy, 'be of a scale and in a location that is in keeping with the existing form of the settlement'. Reference to 'small-scale areas of land' should be deleted or clarification added that this only relates to part 1.
Any development determined in line with D3 would still be on the basis of 'the policies in the Plan', and therefore not exceptional (officer summary)

Change suggested by respondent:

In order to reflect a positively prepared and sound Plan, and to address the Inspector's
comments, my client suggest that the following revised wording be used in place of the
wording proposed by MM079:
'Sites allocated in this Plan, in a made Neighbourhood Plan or committed by planning permission will
normally deliver the district's required level of growth in full. Proposals for development in other
locations will be determined on the basis of the policies within this Plan and made Neighbourhood
plans. In order to ensure that continued, appropriate and sustainable growth is secured over the
entirety of the Plan period, where the Council's monitoring of delivery across the district shows that
the allocated sites are not being delivered at the expected rate, proposals for non-allocated sites at
strategic settlements, larger villages and medium villages will be determined in accordance with Policy
D3. Proposals will need to be accompanied by evidence demonstrating how the site can be delivered in
a timely manner and meet all of the criteria in the Policy below.'

MM080

Representation ID: 3451

Received: 17/12/2019

Respondent: LDA Design

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The addition of the word 'Exceptionally' in Policy D3 implies that even if development
proposals determined in line with Policy D3 meet all of the criteria c - h, then it would still only be granted 'exceptionally'. This is unclear and unnecessary. Policy wording already includes the word 'only'.
My client is supportive of the change to the wording of criterion c.

MM091

Representation ID: 3452

Received: 17/12/2019

Respondent: LDA Design

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The comments provided in response to MM079 and MM080 also apply in response to MM091.
My client suggest revised wording be used in place of the wording proposed by MM091 in order to ensure that it reflects a positively prepared approach. (officer summary)

Change suggested by respondent:

My client suggest that the following revised wording be used in place of the wording
proposed by MM091 in order to ensure that it reflects a positively prepared approach:
'Sites allocated in this Plan, in a made Neighbourhood Plan or committed by planning permission will
normally deliver the district's required level of growth in full. Proposals for development in other
locations will be determined on the basis of the policies within this Plan and made Neighbourhood
plans. In order to ensure that continued, appropriate and sustainable growth is secured over the
entirety of the Plan period, where the Council's monitoring of housing delivery across the district
shows that the allocated sites are not being delivered at the expected rate, additional larger-scale
proposals in the larger villages on land not allocated in the Local Plan or a neighbourhood plan will be
determined in accordance with Policy D3. Proposals will need to be accompanied by evidence
demonstrating how the site can be delivered in a timely manner and meet all of the criteria set out in
Policy D3.'

MM234

Representation ID: 3454

Received: 17/12/2019

Respondent: LDA Design

Representation Summary:

My client supports the amendments made through proposed Main Modification MM234 as they result in a more positively worded and effective policy.
This modification is a more appropriate policy test as it quantifies a degree of harm to be avoided rather than suggesting that any harm be avoided at all.
Furthermore, we support , 'Development will be supported where appropriate mitigation to overcome any adverse impact to the character of the receiving landscape has been agreed'. This reflects a more positively prepared,
mitigation-led approach where potentially adverse effects can be reduced or avoided through good design. (officer summary)
