Consultation Draft (February 2017)

Local Settlement Gaps

Representation ID: 4889

Received: 21/03/2017

Respondent: Wildgoose Homes

Representation Summary:

Object to the boundary of the settlement gap between Stretton and Clay Cross. A site that has a live planning consent for 31 dwellings is included within the proposed gap and must be removed. A settlement gap should be permanent and provide longevity. Proposing to include a site that has planning consent causes confusion and does not accord with what the local authority have granted consent for. The site will be developed and a forthcoming application will be submitted. Please remove this site from the proposed settlement gap and redraw the boundary.

I write to object to the proposed boundary of the settlement gap between Stretton and Clay Cross.
The attached document shows hatched in blue an area of land that has outline planning consent for up to 31 homes. This is a live planning consent and this area of land should not be included within the proposed settlement gap. You should have strategic gaps that have longevity and are permanent. It is not conducive to good planning to include a site that you as a local authority have granted planning consent for and that was seen to "round off" the top section of Stretton to be level with housing on three sides. As part of the planning process we were told that this section was agreeable but any further into the field would not be acceptable as Stretton and Clay Cross needed to have a break between the settlements. Has this site been included within your housing land supply figures? if it has then you should not be allowing for it to possibly become a settlement gap. The site will be developed and a forthcoming application will be submitted. Please delete this site from the proposed settlement gap and redraw the boundary.
