Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The Consortium objects to the requirement for a specifically prepared AGT-1 Masterplan SPD. It introduces an unnecessary layer of planning policy. An SPD would not be justified as it does not represent a proportionate evidence base for the delivery of a proposed site allocation and would not be effective or positively prepared as it would serve to delay
housing delivery. As set out in the full representation, nor would it be consistent with national policy as it would not be required to aid the delivery of infrastructure or help applicants make successful applications.

Respondent: Quod

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The Consortium objects to the stipulation that access should be achieved from Lower Road or Wendover Road. The Consortium do not object to the principle of a coordinated approach to vehicular access and address this in the draft Framework Masterplan. There is, however, no justification for the imposition of a moratorium on direct access from the SEALR.
There has been no change in policy, guidance or material circumstances that support any change to this approach or policy wording. Furthermore, there is no additional supporting evidence presented by AVDC which seeks to support this approach.
See attached Vectos report.

Received: 17/12/2019

Respondent: Quod

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The Consortium objects to the imposition of a restriction on the delivery of housing development until after 2024. There is no good planning or sound reason for this.

MM033 is not accurate in stating that delivery over the remainder of the allocation is dependent on HS2 infrastructure. There is no evidence presented by AVDC to support this, there has been no material change in policy or circumstance and this has not been raised at any stage in the process before now.
The suggestion that the AGT-1 SPD would provide guidance on expected time of delivery, oversteps the remit of SPDs.

Respondent: Quod

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The Consortium objects to the requirement for a specifically prepared AGT-1 SPD. There is no need for a further layer of planning policy regarding site layout and the disposition of land uses. D-AGT1 sets out the site requirements in terms of land use, and the [attached] Framework Masterplan clearly demonstrates how the disposition of uses can be established to be feasible and not requiring a further plan-making process. Nor is there any need for further planning policy or guidance on layout as this is set out in D-AGT1 and should be considered through the planning application process.

Respondent: Quod

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

Whilst supportive in principle of the addition of 'at least' in part (a) the Consortium object that the modification has not gone far enough to recognise that AGT1 can accommodate at least 1,600 units. This would be accurately reflective of the site's capacity to contribute towards Aylesbury's housing need, as supported by AVDC's own evidence including the HELAA and Cumulative Growth Impact Report. The work on site capacity as presented in the [attached] draft Framework masterplan supports AVDC's evidence.

Respondent: Quod

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

Objects to the wording in (c) that proposals should be 'prioritising the delivery' of the SEALR. As the SEALR will be delivered by BCC and is no longer a requirement of the allocation it is not possible for proposals for the rest of the site to have any influence over it which would constitute the prioritisation of its delivery. The Consortium therefore object to this modification as it is not possible for development proposals to comply with it. The [attached] draft Framework Masterplan demonstrates that development proposed by the consortium will ensure delivery of the SEALR is not prevented, by safeguarding land

Respondent: Quod

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Representation Summary:

The Consortium object to the additional text introduced into criterion (d). There is no evidence presented by AVDC to support the moratorium on taking access directly from the SEALR when constructed, if safe access can be provided and would not result in any severe adverse highways effects. This is a matter for the planning application. The additional proposed text is unnecessary, pre-empts the planning application process with no evidence to support it. See [attached] Technical Note from Vectos which shows that there is no technical transport planning or highways justification why this would not be appropriate.

Respondent: Quod

Representation Summary:

Regarding criterion (g) the Consortium supports the principle of green corridors through the site, as demonstrated in the [attached] draft Framework Masterplan which shows east-west orientated corridors of structural landscaping, a green buffer and north-south green corridors.
