Representations on New Local Plan Options - Housing

Representation ID: 4270

SUPPORT Cliffe Investments Ltd represented by Pegasus Planning Group (Miss Sophie Trouth)


The document provides a range of growth options for each of the Selected Rural Villages. This is welcomed given that these settlements are considered appropriate for additional growth. The Planning Practice Guidance sets out that Local Plans "should make clear what is intended to happen in the area over the life of the plan, where and when this will occur and how it will be delivered" (Reference ID: 12-002-20140306). By identifying potential growth options for Foxton, the Council is taking positive steps to address these questions.

OBJECT Mr Luke Demery


Rural villages around Lutterworth are already plagued by extra traffic not following designated routes to Magna Park. Infrastructure is insufficient to support further housing and it is not required. It should be a priority of HDC to maintain rural villages as villages and not turn them into towns by forcing additional housing that is neither wanted nor needed.

SUPPORT Elizabeth Thomas


Broadly favour those options which will maintain village character, are to scale, and proportionate to infrastructure constraint, inevitable in historic villages.

However actual development seems driven by developer preferences for villages where they perceive most external demand (i.e profit) for new homes. These tend to be large and expensive and do little to address the housing shortage. In the face of this one wonders how much weight these options will in practice carry?.

COMMENT Dr Jon Davies


The villages play a significant role in the overall character and value of the district, thus acting to attract people to the area. Pursuing a development policy that adversely affects the character of the villages will have an overall detrimental effect on the whole district. I strongly favour options 3, 6, 7, 8, 9 since they maintain village character whilst recognising modest development is needed to maintain their viability. Improving public transport links will also significantly help viability.

COMMENT Mr Robert Mitchell


Great Easton should have some new homes but it must be proportional to the size of the village and would support between 5 and 20 new homes.

The size of this development is too large for a Selected Rural Village.
