Relationship with other Local Plans and the Duty to Co-operate

Representation ID: 7945

Received: 04/04/2018

Respondent: Gladman Developments

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Representation not received on representation form; council officer has made an interpretation.

It is important consideration is given to the ability for neighbouring areas to meet future housing needs in full and that the plan reflects the potential for unmet needs arising from these areas.

It is noted that at present there is no Duty to Cooperate statement included on the Council website. Gladman therefore reserves its position to comment further on any evidence that is published in due course. In particular, Gladman would expect consideration to be given to the ability of Sheffield City Council to meet its needs and for an appropriate review mechanism to be included within the policies of the Plan in the event that any issues of unmet need will need to be accommodated.

Figure 1.1 on page 6 of the Local Plan provides a useful graphic of the District's close geographical relationship with its neighbours, in particular the Sheffield City Region.

Representation Summary:

Representation not received on representation form; council officer has made an interpretation

Gladman raise concerns that the Council has yet to produce the Habitat Regulations Assessment - Appropriate Assessment and that this will not be published on the Council's website until after the consultation on the Publication Plan has closed. It is concerning that significant environmental effects of the emerging plan on European sites of nature conservation importance have not been adequately considered prior to its publication under Regulation 19.

Gladman supports the objectives of the Local Plan, in particular: D2 to facilitate development and ensure sufficient land is available that will support the growth of the local economy; D5 to meet the OAN of the District and meet the needs of all people. It is essential that these objectives are reflected through the policies of the Plan in a positive manner.

Policy SS1: Sustainable Development

Representation ID: 7958

Received: 04/04/2018

Respondent: Gladman Developments

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

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

Gladman note that this policy sets out what is considered sustainable development within North East Derbyshire. To help strengthen this policy we would suggest this policy is modified to reflect the presumption in favour of sustainable development as set out in the Framework, which is at the heart of plan making.

Policy SS2: Spatial Strategy and the Distribution of Development

Representation ID: 7960

Received: 04/04/2018

Respondent: Gladman Developments

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

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

Concerns are raised that the proposed spatial strategy does not reflect the potential to release land in sustainable locations that are outside of the green belt.

Whilst it would be reasonable for the most sustainable settlements in the borough to take the most growth, it is noted that three of the four 'Level 1 Settlements (Towns)' are wrapped around by the Green Belt. Gladman again reserve the right to comment upon the justification for this approach until full consideration can be given to the Green Belt Topic Paper, released for consultation during the course of this consultation. If this Topic Paper does not fully justify such an approach, when Gladman have submitted sustainable housing sites outside of Green Belt boundaries it cannot be said that the Plan is based on a sound Spatial Strategy.

Change suggested by respondent:

Gladman notes the Spatial Strategy. A key element of this will be the requirement for flexibility to ensure that the development needs of the area can be met in full in both rural and urban areas across the settlement hierarchy. It should also reflect the national policy requirement to protect the Green Belt.

Strategic Site Allocations

Representation ID: 7962

Received: 04/04/2018

Respondent: Gladman Developments

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Representation not received on representation form: Council officer has made interpretation.

Representation refers to policies SS3, SS4 and SS6.

Gladman supports the concept of bringing forward strategic regeneration sites. It is, however, essential that the deliverability, scale, complexity and development requirements of all such allocations is accurately considered as part of the evidence base that underpins the Local Plan.

Whilst the Coalite site does not form part of the housing trajectory, the Plan still places a large reliance on delivery from the other large regeneration sites and it is therefore necessary to ensure that there is sufficient flexibility within its policies to safeguard any risks to the overall delivery of housing to meet objectively assessed needs in full.

Change suggested by respondent:

It is essential that the housing trajectories associated with development at strategic sites are realistic and that sufficient contingency is places within the plan to safeguard against any delays over the plan period.

Economic Growth and Employment Land Provision

Representation ID: 7972

Received: 04/04/2018

Respondent: Gladman Developments

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? Yes

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

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

National policy indicates that significant weight should be placed on the need to support economic growth and productivity through the planning system. This should therefore be reflected within the drafting of local policies to ensure that local plans are fully responsive to economic development needs, including those that have not been anticipated within the Plan. It is therefore essential that any policies that relate to the protection of the countryside provide sufficient flexibility to support proposals for economic development where they make a demonstrable contribution towards the sustainable development of the area.

Change suggested by respondent:

Any policies that relate to the protection of the countryside should provide sufficient flexibility to support proposals for economic development where they make a demonstrable contribution towards the sustainable development of the area.

Grassmoor

Representation ID: 7974

Received: 04/04/2018

Respondent: Gladman Developments

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

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

Gladman submit land at Hagg Hill, Grassmoor for consideration through the plan-making process. Development here represents a logical and sustainable extension to
a sustainable settlement which would support the delivery of housing to meet both market and affordable needs.

Whilst the Council have sought to designate the Site within a Local Settlement Gap under Policy SS11, the development proposals will not result in the physical or visual merging of Grassmoor and the neighbouring settlement of New Tupton, and as such is considered to represent an appropriate and logical extension to Grassmoor.

Change suggested by respondent:

Land at Hagg Hill, Grassmoor should be allocated for housing development.
