Part 1 - Initial Draft (February 2015)

Representation ID: 1717

Received: 24/03/2015

Respondent: Mr Matthew Ellis

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

Generally supportive of the Vision for the District.
It is essential that the Plan supports and facilitates housing and economic growth in order to sustain the town.
Support emphasis on providing new housing, including the delivery of a range of house types and tenures.
Provision of a high-quality design is also generally supported.
Do not agree with the approach to maintain the functions of the Green Belt around Eckington. Plan needs to recognise that new affordable housing will be delivered through market -led housing schemes. This will require a review and release of Green Belt land around Eckington District.

Part 1 - Initial Draft (February 2015)

Representation ID: 2468

Received: 26/03/2015

Respondent: Campaign to Protect Rural England

Representation Summary:

Given District's rural nature, suggest inclusion of a countryside vision:
Safeguard and maintain the open countryside as an important source of recreation,
relaxation and tranquillity for both residents and visitors to the area alike.

Suggest a change of wording to following:
Requiring high quality design in new development which addresses climate change, maintains sense of place, improves the local quality of life and reduces the potential for crime and antisocial behaviour
Replacing "creates" with "maintains" allows for those areas that may already have a strong identity or sense of place which the development should complement and re-enforce rather than contradict.
