North East Derbyshire Publication Draft Local Plan (Reg 19)

Representation ID: 7197

Received: 01/04/2018

Respondent: Dronfield Green Belt Resident's Group

Representation:

Documents referred to in Local Plan not on Council website / not yet available for public view.
North East Derbyshire District Corporate Plan 2015 - 2019
The Housing and Economic Development Strategy 2015-20
Final Habitats regulation assessment still awaited. Green Belt topic paper and Duty to Cooperate document published late. Several evidence documents have multiple iterations. Some documents not referenced in plan. Unclear which evidence plan is based upon. Many evidence documents published during last 6 months to justify strategies fixed at least 12 months ago for which evidence was previously lacking. Evidence does not inform plan, contrived retrospectively.

Change suggested by respondent:

Evidence base is in chaos! Immediately produce clear list, online and on paper in libraries, of all evidence documents highlighting which of repeatedly iterated documents the Plan is based upon. Make all available for public view immediately. Extended consultation period running into mid-May should be for representations on whole plan and evidence base, not just specific documents, given the complex interlinking of the plan and evidence base.

North East Derbyshire Publication Draft Local Plan (Reg 19)

Representation ID: 7279

Received: 03/04/2018

Respondent: Mr Paul Stocks

Objection: Flawed Consultation and Document Set

The current consultation was commenced without key documents being available; some remain unavailable 4 weeks into the consultation period.

The Green Belt Topic Paper was unavailable for 4 weeks of the consultation period.

Recent dated documents are not referenced in the plan. These documents clearly do not inform the plan; they are unequivocal evidence of a retrospective attempt to justify long-standing elements of the plan.

There are multiple versions of some documents in the evidence base; it is not clear whether all versions are relevant or only the latest.

Please see continuation sheet.

Change suggested by respondent:

Halt the current consultation. Rationalise the evidence base. Update the Local Plan document to reference only those evidence documents which have informed the plan. Make it clear how evidence documents have informed the plan (i.e. the intention to build on green belt and 330dpa target pre-date many of the documents in the evidence base).
