Representations on New Local Plan Options - Option 5: Kibworth SDA

Representation ID: 5150

COMMENT Environment Agency (Mr Nick Wakefield)

Summary:

From a flooding prepective, in line with NPPF, sites located within Flood Zone 1 would be our preferred location for growth in the District. Sites located within FZ3b is not permitted for residential development and would only be appropriate for a very limited type of employment development. Sites in FZ 3a and 2 must be sequentially tested from a flooding perspective and whenever possible development should also be steered away from these locations.
The EA's flood level modelling for the River Welland is currently under review and will be updated shortly (by end of year).
With reference to the flood maps, areas to the west of the District identified as being at flood risk include: the area west of Fleckney, south of Great Glen, south of Newton Harcourt, the Broughton Astley area, east of Ullesthorpe, and north and west of Leire.

Representation ID: 5089

COMMENT Leicester City Council (Mr Fabian D'Costa)

Summary:

Leicester City Council Transport Strategy team: Mitigation measures on the existing transport network in Leicester to support new growth may be required for any adverse impacts identified based on the findings of robust transport modelling. These areas may include:
 A6 London Road corridor, Leicester
3 document2
 The A563 Outer Ring Road (Palmerston Way, Asquith Boulevard, and Soar Valley Way). It is important to bear in mind of the impact of the new development will have on air quality. Soar Valley Way / Glenhills Way junction is a declared Air Quality Management Area.
 Public Transport improvements which increase services to Leicester city centre should consider demand for kerb space and improvements as necessary.

Representation ID: 5025

COMMENT Mr John L. Marlow

Summary:

The Kibworth are popular, as illustrated by current house prices levels, but there could be a risk with the SDA to the north east of Kibworth Harcourt (with 2 local centres) undermining the vitality of its traditional trading pattern in Kibworth Beauchamp. The 'by-pass' along the eastern fringe of the development is logical, but the junction with the existing A6 at the south eastern extremity is weak.

COMMENT Leciestershire County Council (Mrs Sharon Wiggins)

Summary:

Economic Growth comments:
* Need to emphasise the importance of Leicestershire's rural economy and the need to ensure market and affordable housing is provided to meet identified local needs; whilst at the same time minimising the risks of creating unsustainable patterns of development.
* To ensure sites are truly deliverable 'certainty' that development(s) are financially viable needs to be emphasised, particularly if the supporting infrastructure required is extensive.

Representation ID: 4924

COMMENT Leciestershire County Council (Mrs Sharon Wiggins)

Summary:

Education Comments
* Option 5 Kibworth SDA; support the principle from an education perspective of providing a school, maybe an issue at secondary level.

Representation ID: 4923

COMMENT Leciestershire County Council (Mrs Sharon Wiggins)

Summary:

Transport Comments:
The Strategic Traffic Assessment (AECOM) highlighted the risk of potential capacity issues arising on the A6 through Oadby for an option that was tested including significant growth in Kibworth. Evidence shows that the A6 London Road south of the Ring Road is a corridor likely to require further attention and investment to 2031. This tends to support evidence on the ground that these corridors are already under significant traffic pressures and that any proposals for strategic growth on or around the south eastern edge of the Principle Urban Area (PUA) will exacerbate these problems. This tends to suggest that options for strategic growth in places such as the Kibworths could well be limited unless and until a strategy can be put in place to address traffic issues on the south side of the PUA. Further LLITM modelling would be needed to assess the impacts on the PUA. This applies to both potential SDAs. Further, should growth in the Kibworths require substantial on and off-site transport infrastructure to mitigate its impacts, there would need to be certainty that the development(s) remained financially viable.

Representation ID: 4888

COMMENT Grace Homes represented by Pegasus (Ms Joanne Althorpe)

Summary:

Grace Homes accepts that the development of a SDA is likely to be required to meet housing need but does not have a fixed view on the most appropriate location for the SDA. Rural development, including at Selected Rural Villages, could complement a single SDA strategy by providing shorter term development opportunities. This is an important factor to consider given the requirmement for the Council to be able to deliver a five year housing land supply +20% buffer.

Representation ID: 4877

OBJECT Mrs Elaine Derrick

Summary:

Our villages have already seen very substantial new residential development, much against local wishes ,and I believe have met the target numbers set by HDC for residential development .The suggested options will turn our villages into mere suburbs of Leicester rather than separate communities. Our local facilities are already up to capacity.

The current road network from all points of the compass is inadequate ,whilst the huge volume of traffic through Thurnby and Bushby, much of it speeding, completely destroys quality of life and community cohesion.

Increased pollution, and the loss of good quality agricultural land, from further development also needs to be recognised.

Representation ID: 4830

OBJECT Kate Gamble

Summary:

Object to Option 5

Representation ID: 4818

OBJECT Mrs Patricia Malpass

Summary:

Object to option 5. The main reasons are that further development will significantly increase traffic through the village & on the A6 which is highly congested at present. Also that the schools in Kibworth are near to capacity which will mean fewer places for children from new developments.
The Kibworth Neighbourhood Plan is currently in the process of production. Decisions on this scale should not be taken before the Neighbourhood Plan is complete.

Representation ID: 4811

OBJECT Mrs Jane McDoanld

Summary:

Object to option 5 for the following reasons:
- Kibworth has had a huge amount of new housing in the past few years, in fact I would say more than its fair share.
- The village is losing its village identity.
- The schools and doctors are completely overwhelmed.
- The traffic through the village is a nightmare and the situation is becoming dangerous.
- Access onto the A6 is virtually impossible at times and the potential for a serious accident is huge.
- Further housing will make all the above even worse.

Representation ID: 4808

OBJECT Ms Christine Spinks

Summary:

Object to option 5:
Kibworth is currently overstretched for resources such as schools, doctors and traffic flow through the village. The infrastructure of the village could not cope with the additional buildings proposed. Air pollution is currently just below the acceptable levels and any proposed house building would push these into dangerous levels.
The current efforts of builders to push through plans before the Neighbourhood Plan can be implimented is totally unacceptable. Bearing in mind the building already taking place and the plans already submitted totalling approximately 500 plus dwellings these comments ae reasonable and justified.

Representation ID: 4800

OBJECT Mrs Sarah Mettrick

Summary:

Object to Option 1 for following reasons:
- Traffic in the village is already a major problem including accessing the A6.
- The village's infrastructure cannot cope with further demand. Doctors Surgery's and both schools would be unable to facilitate such an increase in numbers.
- The history and heritage of Kibworth is substantial and it is important to protect the village's identity. Equally important is preserving the open landscape around it to protect the character and setting of the village.
- Harborough District Council should uphold the Core Plan regarding no development in Kibworth other than small scale infill.

Representation ID: 4793

OBJECT B Moffat

Summary:

Object to Option 5: I have lived in Kibworth for about thirteen years now and moved into a friendly community that was very safe and well provided for. Since then, the new build has blighted our village and still you want to build more houses.
We feel that we are near to breaking point as it is. Traffic, schooling, sewage issues, shops are all under pressure.
The plans are turning a village we were proud of into a much larger town, but without the facilities.

Representation ID: 4790

OBJECT Mr Ron Moore

Summary:

I wish to register the strongest objection to proposals 5. The Kibworths have been swamped with big new housing developments in very recent years, and the village is already at full stretch. New building should be shared evenly across the region, avoiding the stresses that go with over-rapid expansion in a single place.

OBJECT Ms Brenda Reid

Summary:

I object most strongly to the proposals 5,7 and 9 which would see a major development in Kibworth which is not acceptable. If it were to go ahead it would more or less double the current population of Kibworth. It would also have a major impact on schools and doctors surgeries in the village. The schools are already near to capacity and there would be very few places for children from any new housing developments. Increased housing will also result in increased traffic through the village (already problematic) and along the A6.

OBJECT Mr Robertson

Summary:

Object to option 5

Representation ID: 4609

OBJECT Mr Stephen Butt

Summary:

I oppose Option 5 which would involve a considerable amount of new housing in the Kibworth area for the following reasons:
- Existing schools are at capacity;
- Educating young children outside their community is against all concepts of community wellbeing, which is a major component of the NPPF;
- An increase in housing in Kibworth of up to 1200 homes will result in 1000-2000 more vehicles attempting to access the A6 from village streets. A bypass is not the solution as it would only move the pinchpoints to different locations;
- Existing health services arrangements are at copacity.

Summary:

Option 5 does not allow for sufficient flexibility in future housing growth. It is unrealistic and contrary to the objectives of sustainable development to focus the vast majority of future housing growth in one or two settlements or within the urban areas of the borough alone. There is a readily available supply of land within the rural area of the District, including land owned by TCG at Houghton on the Hill, Great Glen and Stoughton, which could contribute to future housing growth and deliver much needed affordable housing and investment for these communities.

SUPPORT Merton College Oxford represented by Savills (Mr Roger Smith)

Summary:

Strongly support option 5. Of the two SDA proposals set out in respect of 'The Kibworths', it is only the Merton College / Leicester Diocesan Board of Finance scheme that can deliver the strategic infrastructure associated with the relief of existing pressures to the A6. Pressures on this route and implications on movement in The Kibworths is well documented in press articles and we understand that a bypass is a long standing ambition of the local community.

Representation ID: 4511

OBJECT Mrs Hazel Taylor

Summary:

Object to 1200 houses for Kibworth. An astonishing and alarming figure. Primary school is at capacity with no room to expand on its present site. It is increasingly difficult to see one's GP not to mention the amount of traffic going through the village. No development has yet taken place Airfield Farm. Perhaps further development in Kibworth is a more urgent proposition in case the Neighbourhood Plan currently being compiled may hinder a more lucrative return on their investment. Kibworth is still seen as an attractive place to live but this may not be the case if development is not sympathetic to its semi-rural nature.

Representation ID: 4507

OBJECT Mr J Blenkin represented by Aitchison Raffety (Mr Jonathan Weekes)

Summary:

Object due to allocation of 1,200 dwellings suggested for Kibworth. This is a modest sized Rural Centre which through the previous Local Plan incorporated a large residential allocation, resulting in approval of more than 700 houses which are still being built out. To suggest a further 1,200 dwellings can be accommodated at Kibworth without overwhelming the village is unfathomable. Unless it is intended that Kibworth is elevated to town status and have other commitments to increase community facilities and employment opportunities to an equivalent level, then this level of development is completely unjustifiable as it is not creating a balance live/work community.

Representation ID: 4493

OBJECT Mr Mick Underwood

Summary:

After reading about future developments proposed for the Kibworths I find the numbers proposed to be propostuos as there is not the sufficient infrastructure in place.The school's are already full and trying to drive through the Village is a nightmare.After reading the form from the Parrish council l strongly oppose option 5 (7 and 9).

Summary:

* Schools and Medical Services are already at maximum capacity
* Transport links are totally inadequate for the number of homes being considered - exit roads are overloaded and the A6 is dangerous.
* There is little prospect of employment within the village so future residents will always have to travel elsewhere - and therefore spend their income elsewhere so Kibworth will not benefit in any way.
* The passage of traffic through the village centre is already frequently at a standstill so more vehicles will aggravate this situation.

I struggle to get a GP's appointment which can be quite a frightening experience.

Schools in Kibworth are near on saturated with Kibworth High School needing to expand for when they have their first Year 11's next year, let alone admitting more children from new housing estates.

Trying to get onto the A6, not only at rush hour, is very difficult as it is with the sheer volume of traffic through our Village. More traffic will bring
along a serious consideration for road infrastructure improvements in the area to ensure a satisfactory level of road safety is maintained.

Existing services are already stretched to capacity ie education, (the primary school has already reached its maximum intake); medical; roads, (extra time has to be factored into journeys at peak times to allow access to the A6). There is not even a newsagents for the new estates at the far end of the village on Warwick road, and not everyone has access to a vehicle during the day, which must make life for young mothers very difficult, especially in bad weather with toddlers in tow.

OBJECT Mr Stephen Gould

Summary:

I believe The Kibworths are in danger of being encircled and besieged with new building. In my opinion, there is insufficient infrastructure in the villages as it is and the pressure on the A.6 and adjoining roads would be intolerable.

Representation ID: 4277

OBJECT Ms Sarah Gould

Summary:

The current infrastructure of the Kibworths is already under strain and the village roads are already choked with traffic. Access to and from the A6 takes longer every day.

The Kibworths are in great danger of being inundated by new building, bolted on to the perimeter of the village, with the consequent loss of many acres of greenfield land and habitat.

People who come to live in such estates cannot rely on village facilities which are already over stretched and so will commute in and out, adding to traffic problems, without ever being part of village life or community.

The primary school is at capacity, with little room to expand, and with Smeeton Road also congested at peak times of day.
Both villages maintain a rural feel away from the A6, however Kibworth Meadows is not intergrated. Further development will appeal to commuters only.

SUPPORT William Davis Limited (SARAH JINKS)

Summary:

We favour this option which provides for a wider distribution of the housing requirment across the District thus delivering houses to support sustainable rural settlements.

Representation ID: 4177

OBJECT Mr Marc Fielding

Summary:

Already in Kibworth the facilities are thread bare. It is impossible to book an appointment at the doctors, the school is already at captivity and it is becoming unsafe in the playgrounds due to the fact there are so many pupils. Furthermore portakabins are only a temporary solution to the overflowing children.

In short with out a drastic increase in public funds going into the local services within Kibworth e.g new schools, doctors, infrastructure etc it isn't viable to build anymore house. In short we are against all proposed development in and around Kibwoth Harcourt and Kibworth Beauchamp.

Representation ID: 4156

OBJECT Valerie Moore

Summary:

In view of the fact that Kibworth will have accomodated some 700 houses already on the David Wilson site the proposal to add 1200 more is not acceptable.

COMMENT DLA Town Planning (David Lane)

Summary:

The Kibworths are treated as a single settlement in the Core Strategy. Even taken together the two villages are only classified as a Rural Centre in the settlement hierarchy, two tiers below Market Harborough. This is a reflection of the limited range of services and facilities available to the residents in these villages. The addition of 1,000 homes through an SDA in this location will not fundamentally change the role that these villages play in the district nor does it appear to lead to a substantial increase in the level and quality of services provided for villagers.

In relation to the key allocation sites we are able to respond as follows:
* Kibworth: The development of either of the proposed housing allocations (AB/KB/MXD/22 and AB/KB/MXD/27) is expected to require improvements to the foul sewerage network and sewage treatment enhancements.

I am a resident of the Kibworths having arrived in the early days of KB1.

The Kibworths, under these proposals, are to become mere dormitory villages; the infra-structure of businesses and entertainment to create a greater community is not here; let alone the inadequacy of education facilities. Children commuting, as well as their parents, will overload the A6 and joining roads, and the bypass is not considered!

Summary:

The services within the village are already under immense strain. An over burdened road system is frustrating and at times dangerous to local residents. The options based around further expansion in Kibworth seem unviable. With little thought for the infra-structures that a community need in place it seems mindless to build more houses. With the quite possible closure of the local fire station this is more evidence of a village which will have limited services for what will be a large population. It will become the size of a town with the services and infra-structure of a small village.

Summary:

The roads through the centre Kibworth are congested.
There is increasing traffic on the A6 that cuts Kibworth in two causing problems when cars want to turn onto or cross that road.
The railway line crossing through Kibworth make access more difficult.
It seems unlikely that a bypass will be built in the time scale covered by this plan and will not in any case help movement around the centre of the village.
The schools are full and the doctors lists are full. How can any further development in Kibworth be sustainable without a substantial investment in infrastructure?

OBJECT Mrs Janet Hastings

Summary:

I strongly object to this Option. Kibworth is still struggling to adjust to 600+ houses at KB/1. The A6, main routes through the village and car parks are already too busy and cannot cope with any more traffic. At peak times, it is extremely difficult to turn onto or off the A6. The A6 takes around 20,000 vehicles daily, and the 'relief' road suggested, in my opinion, would add to congestion due to an increased number of roundabouts on a single carriageway.

As a resident of Kibworth Beauchamp for many years we have seen considerable building which has been predominantly infill. The roads are now extremely busy as so many households have more than two cars (view KB1).
The proposal to the North and East at least makes sense as this is against the main A6 unlike the other schemes. However for this, make the road capable of taking the volumes of traffic and place a roundabout just to the north of the railway bridge.
Further to the roads, the schools and surgery are at capacity already.

However the option still allocates large numbers to Market Harborough without infrastructure to support it, and small numbers to Lutterworth without sufficient infrastructure.

Summary:

Totally unaccceptable because it would result in a 50% increase in the number of dwellings in Kibworth. It would completely alter the nature of the village and would result in a huge increase in traffic along the A6 which also gives unacceptable traffic flows from 7.30 to 9am and from 4.30 to 7.00pm

Representation ID: 1995

OBJECT Mr Clive Palmer

Summary:

Before further housing be committed to the Kibworth parish a full amenities programme should be undertaken, i.e. increase to school facilities, doctors, shops, open spaces, pubs, etc.. Also a greater increase in traffic will require major traffic management to the A6 through the village and its connecting roadways. At present it is virtually impossible to enter the flow of traffic on the A6 during high capacity periods; extra traffic will cause severe logjams.

Representation ID: 1993

OBJECT Mrs Samantha Village

Summary:

Kibworth already had substantial development and reassured that it would not be subject to further developments outside current limits to development.
Increased pressure on roads not acceptable as road infrastructure is inadequate for number of current users.
Current health and education services and community facilities could not cope with an increase in community needs as already stretched to capacity.
Neighbourhood Plan which is already in progress should be afforded the opportunity to submit evidence before a decision is made by HDC on housing options.

OBJECT Mr Jonathan Parsons

Summary:

This proposed SDA should not be considered until the commitments given when KB1 was built are met.

As a result of these failures, the primary school is no longer able to accommodate the number of pupils in the village, the road infrastructure has become dangerous, the health service provision is inadequate and the character of the village has become irreversibly damaged.

All logic and environmental consideration would suggest that any further development should take place close to the motorway network, within areas offering employment opportunities or within areas close to mainline train stations.

OBJECT Mr Christopher Gladman

Summary:

Kibworth has already had more than its fair share of development, the schools and doctors surgeries are over capacity. The A6, main routes through the village and car parks are already too busy and can't cope with any more traffic. At peak times, it is extremely difficult to turn onto or off the A6 becuase of the volume of traffic. When KB1 was permitted, HDC assured Kibworth that it would be protected from further development in the remaining plan period to 2031. A Kibworth SDA should not even be considered.

OBJECT BURTON OVERY Parish Council (Mrs Kate Barker)

Kibworth has seen huge development over the last few years to the extent the schools are full and the roads are impossible to navigate. To put another massive development into the village would lose all the village character and the financial input to boost the infrastructure to a level where it would cope would be counterproductive. Development needs to be either spread proportionally amongst the district or needs to concentrate on the urban areas. This would ruin Kibworth.

Premature, too high level of housing and employment has been included for the Kibworths; the draft Neighbourhood Plan is best able to provide relevant policies on housing needs for the settlement. Where is an up to date housing needs assessment? Where is the up to date assessment of community wellbeing? The primary school is full, both GP surgeries are bursting. Kibworth Harcourt has almost doubled in size without facilities such as a food store or meeting place. Access onto the A6 is very poor at peak periods. Air quality is getting worse due to traffic.

Referring to Figure 26: Map to illustrate the 2nd of 2 potential Strategic Development Areas for the Kibworths

Adding 1200 houses to the west of Kibworth would be suicide as far as traffic levels are concerned. Kibworth would end up with all the negative effects of large scale housing, yet still no bypass.

That's not to say that I support the 1200 houses north of Harcourt, but to say that out of both options this one (to the west) is the worst one with nothing more than a relief road.

The traffic situation is already at breaking point TODAY. (HDC note: Photographic evidence has been provided and is acknowledged)

OBJECT Stefan Richter

Summary:

HDC made promises in relation to the existing KB/1 site which it did not uphold. Improvements to community facilities, library, sports, car park, improved access to the school or even a railway station (which were promised) did not materialise.
Kibworth is not equipped to absorb the impact of KB/1, let alone further large scale development.
It is not comprehensible for any 'normal' resident (someone unfamiliar with planning policy intricacies) to understand how we can arrive at a 1200 houses with a previous position of 'the Rural Centres of Kibworth and Great Glen are excluded from [...] additional housing'.

Representation ID: 828

OBJECT Stefan Richter

Summary:

Kibworth's is already over capacity as far as traffic is concerned, and even a bypass would not solve this. How HDC can even consider a further 1200 houses in Kibworth is impossible to comprehend.
The infrastructure required to support this amount of houses in addition to the over 600 already in progress would be immense. It would destroy the character of the village, almost doubling its size.
The Core Strategy promised no further large scale development - this proposal is an absolute departure from policies that until very recently were considered up to date and sensible.

Kibworth can not sustain this level of proposed development. It will ruin our village. We do not have the infrastructure to cope. The village will not remain a place that people will want to live.. Over development of any area damages it. We are a village not a town. Our roads cannot cope with the additional traffic. The access onto the A6 will be a disaster which will in turn delay people travelling from Leicester to the South and vice versa. The pollution and noise will be detrimental to the existing and future residents.

Representation ID: 818

OBJECT Mrs Alison Oldridge

Summary:

1200 houses could mean an extra 4,800 residents in the village with 2,000 extra cars! Such a large development would be unsustainable and have a very real adverse impact on the village. The schools are full and unable to expand and the village would not be able to provide the infrastructure necessary for the increase in traffic and residents. There would be a massive loss of open countryside with loss of wildlife habitat and biodiversity. Once agricultural land is taken for building it is gone for ever!

This objection is made on behalf of the full Governing Body and the Headteacher of Kibworth CE Primary School. The continuous growth of the village puts unreasonable strain on school. Unless action is taken to address the deficit in primary school places, both the quality and quantity of education we are able to provide for village families will suffer. The number of pupils has risen by 30% in just five years and this level of growth is unsustainable. Access to school is also a major concern. We would welcome further discussions with planners.
