VALP Main Modifications

MM010

Representation ID: 3263

Received: 11/12/2019

Respondent: Gleeson Strategic Land

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? Not specified

Representation Summary:

Supports the objective to deliver at least 28,600 dwellings sustainably with a focus on strategic settlements. Supports Winslow being a strategic settlement.
We note that the housing requirement for Buckingham, Haddenham and Winslow state that growth will be a certain figure, rather than a minimum or 'around' as is the case for Wendover.
On the basis that the aspiration is to deliver at least 28,600 the terminology for these settlements could be interpreted as a ceiling. Therefore, for consistency, the figures for all strategic settlements which feed into the overarching housing requirement figure should be a minimum or 'around' figure. (officer summary)

Change suggested by respondent:

The policy wording in relation to S2 parts b, c and d should therefore be revised as follows:
b. Buckingham will accommodate growth of at least 2,166359 new homes. This growth will enhance the town centre and its function as a market town, and will support sustainable economic growth in the north of the district.
c. Haddenham will accommodate growth of at least 1,03251 new homes. This will be supported by infrastructure and recognise the important role of Haddenham and
Thame railway station.
d. Winslow will accommodate growth of at least 8971,166 new homes, linked with the development of East-West Rail and the new railway station in Winslow

Dear Sir / Madam
VALE OF AYLESBURY LOCAL PLAN - MAIN MODIFICATIONS CONSULTATION
Your Ref: 31567
Gleeson Strategic Land Limited and Linden Homes ("hereafter referred to as Gleeson/Linden") control the land edged red on the enclosed site plan. We participated in earlier rounds of public consultation for the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan ("VALP") and now provide our comments on the Main Modifications Consultation.
Policy S2 Spatial strategy for growth
Gleeson/Linden continue to support Policy S2 in terms of its objectives to:
(i) Deliver at least 28,600 new homes; and
(ii) accommodate this development sustainably with a focus on the identified strategic settlements.
In this regard Gleeson / Linden also continue to support the identification of Winslow as one of five key 'strategic settlements'. The re-opening of Winslow Railway Station on the 'East-West Rail' line significantly enhances the sustainability of Winslow.
However, and whilst housing numbers for four out of these five settlements have been reduced (Aylesbury Garden Town aside), we would note that the housing requirement for Buckingham, Haddenham and Winslow state that growth will be a certain figure, rather than a minimum or 'around' as is the case for Wendover.
On the basis that the aspiration is to deliver at least 28,600 the terminology for these settlements could be interpreted as a ceiling. Therefore, for consistency, the figures for all strategic settlements which feed into the overarching housing requirement figure should be a minimum or 'around' figure. The policy wording in relation to S2 parts b, c and d should therefore be revised as follows:

c. Haddenham will accommodate growth of at least 1,03251 new homes. This will be supported by infrastructure and recognise the important role of Haddenham and
Thame railway station.
d. Winslow will accommodate growth of at least 8971,166 new homes, linked with the development of East-West Rail and the new railway station in Winslow
Policy D3 Proposal for non-allocated sites at strategic settlements, larger villages and medium villages
This policy sets out circumstances where development of non-allocated sites will be permitted, listing criteria that need to be fulfilled.
The proposed Main Modifications seek to insert the word 'Exceptionally' at the start of the supporting paragraph relating to 'Larger scale development'. However, it is considered that the insertion of this word is unnecessary - the circumstances under which further development would be permitted on non-allocated sites is confirmed within the text that follows.
We trust that these comments are taken into consideration in the finalising of the VALP.
Yours faithfully
