Representation ID: 5644

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Define

Representation Summary:

It is important that sufficient land is released to meet the full-identified development needs, and that consideration is given to potential long term development needs to ensure that the new boundaries use recognisable and permanent features.

Full text:

The acknowledgement that planning to meet the identified development needs in the Local Plan period to 2033 will require the release of Green Belt land in locations in the District is welcomed. That reflects the reality that the capacity of the available land within the urban areas is ultimately limited, and that the allocation of a portfolio of development sites in sustainable locations in accordance with the Local Plan's spatial strategy is required to meet the identified development needs, the requirements identified under the Duty to Cooperate and maintain a rolling 5 year housing land supply as required by the NPPF (para 47). The "exceptional circumstances" required by the NPPF to do that clearly exist in these circumstances.
However, in undertaking this process it is important that sufficient land is released to meet the full-identified development needs, and that consideration is given to potential long term development needs to ensure that the new boundaries use recognisable and permanent features that can endure beyond the plan period in accordance with NPPF (paras 83-85) (e.g. the need to safeguard land).

Respondent: Sheffield FC

Agent: DLP (Planning Ltd) - East Midlands office

Representation Summary:

R Timms objects to Policy SS10. If the Sheffield FC site is not allocated then it should be removed from the Green Belt due to its sustainable location and lack of Green Belt functions. It is suggested to insert an additional point within the policy:
iii) it would assist in meeting the 5 year supply of housing land.

Consultation Draft (February 2017)

Representation ID: 6162

Received: 06/04/2017

Respondent: The National Trust

Representation Summary:

The purpose of Green Belts is to keep land permanently open. In order to justify the removal of land from the Green Belt the Council will need to demonstrate that there are exceptional circumstances (NPPF paragraph 83) taking account of the need to promote sustainable patterns of development (NPPF 84).

Spatial portrait

Description of the area
Section 2.8 - National Trust welcomes the reference to the settings of Bolsover Castle and Hardwick Hall and the need to protect these designated heritage assets.

Key issues
Section 2.17 - National Trust welcomes the recognition within the Economy and Employment section of the value of the Peak District and local heritage assets such as Chatsworth, Bolsover and Hardwick Hall as drivers of economic growth and tourism.
Section 2.22 - National Trust supports the recognition of opportunities to increase the capacity of renewable energy generation in the district to help reduce emissions and climate change.
Section 2.24 - While we acknowledge the recognition of pressure on the natural environment as a result of growth, we suggest that it would be helpful to include a positive statement here about protecting and enhancing these assets.
Section 2.25 - National Trust welcomes the reference to protecting heritage assets and we suggest that archaeological remains along with (built and natural) heritage need to be protected and where possible enhanced.

Spatial strategy
SS3 Spatial Strategy and the Distribution of Development
The purpose of Green Belts is to keep land permanently open.

The purpose of Green Belts is to keep land permanently open. In order to justify the removal of land from the Green Belt the Council will need to demonstrate that there are exceptional circumstances (NPPF paragraph 83) taking account of the need to promote sustainable patterns of development (NPPF 84).

Policy SDC6 is generally supported but would benefit from minor rewording for clarity:
"Proposals for alterations to or changes of use of listed buildings (including its their settings) will be supported where they protect the significance of the heritage asset including impacts on the character, architectural merit or historic interest of the building.
Proposals should consider factors such as employ materials, layout, architectural features, scale and design that respond to and do not detract from the listed building.
Proposals which allow for viable uses that are compatible with the conservation of the fabric of the building and its setting will generally be supported."

Comment

Consultation Draft (February 2017)

Representation ID: 6221

Received: 06/04/2017

Respondent: CPRE South Yorkshire & Friends of the Peak District

Representation Summary:

In terms of the rationale for that delineation, CPRE is broadly supportive of the policy. However, there is a very high risk that it will be ineffective, and must therefore be considered unsound. (see submission for more.)

SS10 should clearly state the function that safeguarded land is intended to provide and the consequences of developing it during the plan period. In particular, this will include a statement of how the settlement hierarchy, infrastructure provision and distribution of development are pertinent to the plan period and cannot in themselves be rendered out-of-date by lack of a 5-year land supply.

Respondent: Strata Homes Limited

Agent: DLP (Planning) Ltd - Sheffield office

Representation Summary:

Strata Homes object to Policy SS10. If the site off Harehill Road to the west of Walton Hospital is not allocated for development at the present time its sustainable location and lack of green belt function would strongly suggest that it should be removed from the Green Belt and allocate as safeguarded land.

Consultation Draft (February 2017)

Representation ID: 6470

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Hallam Land Management

Agent: Freeths LLP

Representation Summary:

Hallam Land supports the principle of Policy SS10, although proposes that further revisions should be made to increase the size of the safeguarded land to the extension shown on the enclosed drawing (Plan A) which would represent an increase from approx. 31ha to 84ha. This amended boundary would cause no additional harm, would respond to the existing natural features and would be contained by Foxstone Wood.
