Sustainability Appraisal Report Addendum to the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (October 2019)

Representation ID: 3006

Received: 13/12/2019

Respondent: Crest Nicholson

Agent: Mr James Brewer

Representation Summary:

Support subject to minor comments on conclusions on Heritage that underpin the SA addendum

Full text:

These comments relate to document ED222 AVDC Heritage Appraisal which supports document ED204.

CN would comment that this is a very high level and basic document and therefore its assessment of the relative heritage/archaeological significance of the three sites (Shenley Park, Salden Chase and Eaton Leys) is fairly simplistic and, as the report itself states, a more detailed heritage appraisal of each is recommended, and for Shenley Park would be carried out as part of the masterplanning process.

In terms of archaeological potential, CN would comment there is really very little to separate Shenley Park from Eaton Leys as both are proximate to Scheduled Ancient Monuments, and broadly similar below ground archaeological remains can be anticipated. Salden Chase has perhaps a slightly lower potential.

However, the reason that Shenley Park is identified as having a greater heritage potential than the other two sites is because of the proximity of the Whaddon Conservation Areas, specifically the Stock Lane Conservation Area located adjacent and to the west of the site's north western boundary. As stated above, by implementation of criterion (g) in site specific policy WHA001, any such impact could be mitigated, and this needs to be considered when analysing the weighting of the conclusions regarding Heritage Harm/Impact within the Sustainability Appraisal Addendum (ED204).

Representation Summary:

Support and agree with conclusion that Shenley Park is the most appropriate site to allocate adjacent to Milton Keynes. Suggests amendment to second paragraph in Policy S2

Change suggested by respondent:

recommend that the second paragraph within Policy S2 is amended to read 'The strategy also allocates growth at two sites adjacent to Milton Keynes which reflects its status as a strategic settlement immediately adjacent to Aylesbury Vale District' as both Salden Chase and Shenley Park are now allocated for residential development.

Full text:

Please see attached document 32735 Crest Nicholson Section 4 and the comments below that set out Crest Nicholson's support, subject to minor changes, to MM010.

Crest Nicholson would recommend that the second paragraph within Policy S2 is amended to read 'The strategy also allocates growth at two sites adjacent to Milton Keynes which reflects its status as a strategic settlement immediately adjacent to Aylesbury Vale District' as both Salden Chase and Shenley Park are now allocated for residential development.

Crest Nicholson support bullet (f) of policy S2 that increases the housing provision in the North East of Aylesbury Vale from 2,212 to 3,362. As the Inspector noted in document ED181 'I stated that it was for the Council to decide how it wished to meet the need for any additional allocations. The suggestion that it be met entirely by an allocation in the Milton Keynes area would adequately address the specific recommendation of paragraph 37 of my Interim Findings. The source for identifying the allocation is entirely within the Council's discretion. I have no reason to dispute the Council's choice of focussing its attention on those sites identified on pages 248-254 of the HELAA report V4 (January 2017)'.

Crest Nicholson agree with both the Inspector and AVDC that the HELAA report provides the most appropriate piece of evidence from which to determine which site should be allocated for residential development. Of the three options considered next to Milton Keynes, namely Shenley Park, Eaton Leys and an extension to Salden Chase, only Shenley Park is considered suitable for residential development in the HELAA, a conclusion that is also borne out by the Sustainability Appraisal addendum that has been provided as part of the main modifications evidence base. Shenley Park was also the only site of the three included in the 2016 version of the VALP (Regulation 18).

Representation Summary:

Support subject to minor revisions to housing trajectory and number of units being delivered within the plan period

Full text:

Please see document 32735 Crest Nicholson Section 4 and comments below that support MM074 subject to minor changes proposed.

Crest Nicholson would recommend that Policy D-NLV001 Salden Chase is revised to reflect the latest position in terms of site delivery and the known delays. As set out in Section 4 of these representations, due to a recent refusal of the planning application for access into the Salden Chase site and the Section 106 agreement not being signed for the outline resolution to grant permission, we believe an accurate trajectory should allow for at least an additional year for the applicant to either reapply for the necessary access from Milton Keynes and/or appeal. This would therefore deliver the first units in 2024/25, rather than 2021/22 as suggested in main modifications. A tapering off of units towards the end of site delivery has also been assumed, as it is typical to have less outlets operational at the end years of a site. For these reasons we would recommend that the policy wording is revised as set out below:
'50 homes to be delivered 2018-2024 and 1,750 homes to be delivered from 2025-2033'.
