Representations on New Local Plan Options - Q5. Which is your preferred Option for Development in the Countryside?, Option C3: Meeting locally identified need (with Option C1 above)
SUPPORT Mr J Blenkin represented by Aitchison Raffety (Mr Jonathan Weekes)
Supoort this approach. Reflecting the need to allow natural growth of villages to occur, it would be inappropriate to state no additional development is allowed in the lower order settlements. However, there is a requirement to protect the countryside for its own sake (as set out in the NPPF). Given the typically small scale nature and unsustainability of such villages, the level of development envisaged should be kept to a minimum, meeting identified local and agricultural need.
COMMENT Miss Ruth Thompson
with option 1 strictly controlled
SUPPORT Mr Simon Smith
by the means of option c1
SUPPORT Hungarton Neighbourhod Plan Committee (Mr James Patterson)
Hungarton NDP committee stongly favours C3 with C1
OBJECT EAST LANGTON and CHURCH LANGTON Parish Council (Mrs Roz Folwell)
English Heritage have identified East Langton as a rare example of retaining its medieval village layout. The open spaces are crucial to this layout therefore infill development would be extremely detrimental to its heritage status.
OBJECT Mr Graham Logan
With 100 households Cotesbach does not currently have a neighbourhood plan due to cost and the ongoing management for a small rural population. Therefore cannot be disadvantaged as a consequence under C3.
COMMENT Mrs Angela Lomas
The countryside is constantly under attack. It is therefore vitally important that strict planning rules are in place to prevent inappropriate development in all the wrong places. This applies to housing, industry and so called green energy.
OBJECT Hft represented by Mr. Nigel Simkin
This option would allow for the provision of some housing in smaller settlements such as Shangton where development needs are identified locally either through a housing needs survey or through a Neighbourhood Plan. This option therefore does not recognise the potential to reuse PDL sites in the future and hence this must be included if this option is carried forward in the future, to ensure that the Local Plan is in line with the NPPF.
SUPPORT BILLESDON Parish Council (Paul Collins)
The recent Billesdon Neighbourhood Plan set out the wishes of the Community. We strongly believe that local needs should be met within the confines of limits agreed in the Neighbourhood Plan.
OBJECT Mr A Adcock
With c. 100 households Cotesbach does not currently have a neighbourhood plan due to cost and ongoing management for a small population. Therefore cannot be disadvantaged as a consequence under C3.
SUPPORT Ms Caroline Pick
This one is best
