VALP Main Modifications


Representation ID: 2830

Received: 01/12/2019

Respondent: Foscote Parish Meeting

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The allocation of site MMO006 (and MM101) is: not positively prepared consistent with achieving sustainable development; not justifiably the most appropriate strategy when considered against reasonable alternatives or based on justifiably accurate and proportionate evidence; and not consistent with National Policies - NPPF paras 34, 112, 151, 155 and 158, and PPG para 3-008.

Therefore the allocation is UNSOUND. It falls foul of HELAA v4 appendix 2, HELAA Methodology paras 1.20, 1.21 and 2.15 so is not legally and procedurally compliant, which is further exacerbated by the procedural unfairness that has arisen during the course of the examination process.

Change suggested by respondent:

The allocation of site MMO006, and all associated modifications - both MM101 and the
modifications in the proposed VALP - must be deleted from the VALP because the allocation is not sound or legally/procedurally compliant in accordance with NPPF para 182.

( Full text see attached)

The inclusion of site MMO006 in the VALP is based on flawed and incomplete evidence, and the allocation of the site for development is not legally and procedurally compliant or sound in accordance with NPPF para 182.

To increase the size of this site from 7.7 hectares to 8.8 hectares in MM101, and to insert the words "at least" before "170 dwellings" under site provision (a) in the Proposed Modified VALP without including this change as a Main Modification is not 'justified' or 'consistent with national policy for enabling the delivery of sustainable development' as defined in NPPF para 182. These changes are
therefore unsound.
