North East Derbyshire Publication Draft Local Plan (Reg 19)

Representation ID: 7292

Received: 31/03/2018

Respondent: Dronfield Civic Society

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? No

Representation:

Council officer identified Policy/paragraph and interpreted judgement.
Paragraph 8.30 on Conservation Areas states that in making judgements about the impact of development on the significance of a conservation area the Council will use its Conservation Area Appraisal "where one has been prepared".
Paragraph 8.40 on Non Designated Local Assets states that the Government recognises such heritage assets as noted in its guidance (NPPF) and the Council will aim to identify and establish a list of locally important buildings and structures.
The Council does not have a strong track record in these areas and I am concerned that, despite the fine words, little will actually be taken forward.

Change suggested by respondent:

The Council should ensure that up to date appraisals are put in place for all the conservation areas in the District.
The Council should actually produce, not merely aim to produce, a Local List of Heritage Assets in line with the NPPF.

Representation was not received on representation form; Council Officer has made interpretation.

The approach to protecting the historic environment must fully reflect the guidance set out in the framework through paragraphs 126-141. With reference to designated heritage assets, the Council should refer specifically to NPPF paragraphs 133 and 134, which set out the need to assess the significance of a designated heritage assets and where there is less than substantial harm, this should be weighed against the public benefits of the proposal. Where there is deemed to be substantial harm, the proposal would need to achieve substantial public benefits to outweigh that harm.

For non-designated assets, the policy must reflect the guidance set out within NPPF paragraph 135. This states that the policy test that should be applied in these cases is that a balanced judgement should be reached having regard to the scale of any harm and the significance of the heritage asset.

Change suggested by respondent:

The approach to protecting the historic environment must fully reflect the guidance set out in the framework through paragraphs 126-141.
