Table 4.2: Housing Provision by Level 1 and Level 2 Settlement

Representation ID: 6641

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Wheeldon Brothers Ltd

Agent: Planning and Design Group

Representation Summary:

Wheeldon Brothers Ltd objects to the specific housing requirement being proposed for Level 2 Settlements and considers that in the context of housing growth needs these should be minimum figures reflecting the acknowledged sustainability of these locations. The settlement boundary around Shirland is already tight. The approach advocated by Policies LC1 and SS12 would allow only restricted development opportunities to be realised. Proposed revisions to settlement boundaries have not yet been published as part of the Local Plan preparation process.

Policy SS11: Local Settlement Gaps

Representation ID: 6646

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Wheeldon Brothers Ltd

Agent: Planning and Design Group

Representation Summary:

Statement that policy SS11, is not supported by the NPPF, it does not promote a criteria based policy. Policy SS11 should be modified to clarify that it is not a restrictive policy on all development and that if the extent of the Local Settlement Gap is to be retained, the policy should allow development to be considered on its own merits against the test of separation.

Settlement Development Limits

Representation ID: 6649

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Wheeldon Brothers Ltd

Agent: Planning and Design Group

Representation Summary:

Wheeldon Brothers Ltd strongly supports the review and amendments of the Settlement Boundary around Shirland. However, the Settlement Boundary as presented within the adopted Local Plan and therefore shown on the current Consultation Draft Policies Map does not fully reflect the extent of existing development or have regard to development opportunities that may have arisen since the adopted Local Plan was prepared, having regard to all other relevant considerations.

Policy LC5: Custom and Self Build Dwellings

Representation ID: 6655

Received: 07/04/2017

Respondent: Wheeldon Brothers Ltd

Agent: Planning and Design Group

Representation Summary:

Wheeldon Brothers Ltd objects to Policy LC5. The Local Plan has not confirmed the number of people who have expressed interest in self build opportunities. To simply ascribe this limited interest in the register yet impose a significant policy requirement on the basis of it (5% of plots to be reserved) is arbitrary, unfounded in reliable evidence and unreasonable. Even if the policy was effective in securing self build plots, the supply may be below or above the actual level of demand. As drafted, this policy is unworkable and should be deleted.
