VALP Main Modifications

MM010

Representation ID: 2794

Received: 02/12/2019

Respondent: Halton Parish Council

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The current wording implies Halton is a residential suburb of Wendover which is factually
wrong. We believe this will lead to bad planning and bad place making because it
assumes the facilities of Wendover are easily available to the community of Halton which
is not true. We believe the Plan needs to discretely recognise that there has to be some
additional facilities at Halton.

Change suggested by respondent:

Wendover will accommodate around 132 new homes
and Halton will have 1,000 new homes at RAF Halton
which is now confirmed to be closing in 2026. This
recognises the sustainability of Wendover and the
railway station, however there will be a requirement for
infrastructure and community facility developments at
Halton in line with Garden Village principles.. No further
growth is allocated at Wendover reflecting the

Representation ID: 2796

Received: 02/12/2019

Respondent: Halton Parish Council

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The paragraph does not accurately describe the situation with the Green Belt revisions which were considered and should be revised as suggested

Change suggested by respondent:

At the draft plan stage the council had also proposed
two potential revisions to the boundary of the Green
Belt to the north of Wendover. One revision was to
provide a site for approximately 800 dwellings to the
north of Wendover and another to remove part of the
RAF Halton main site to the south of Upper icknield Way
abutting the AONB. During the development and review
of the Local Plan these proposals were not justified and
were withdrawn.

Full text:

Halton Parish Council objected strongly to the proposal lifting of the green Belt from RAF Halton, and pointed out not only was their analysis comprehensively flawed, but also potentially illegal. They withdrew the proposal to lift the green belt in this VALP, however have alluded to it without giving the public the opportunity to question it. Therefore the
comments are misleading and not necessary for the soundness of the current Local Plan.
On a second point AVDC had agreed at the examination to remove all hints about lifting
the green belt so developers would not delay developing the land awaiting a possible
change in the future. Their current response does not deliver their undertaking.

Revise para 4.108 to say:
