Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - E7 Tourism development
OBJECT Unknown (Mrs S Pearce) represented by RPS Group (Mr Nick Laister)
Policy E7 fails to provide adequate support for the provision of new, suitable new tourism facilities in the countryside, contrary to the guidance contained in paragraph 28 of the NPPF and the support provided within the preceding supporting text in the Plan at paragraphs 6.25 - 6.30. The policy unnecessarily places significant restrictions on the erection of any new buildings that support tourism facilities. The policy, as worded, also imposes criteria to be met by all development proposals, even where they are not relevant.
OBJECT Natural England (Ms Kirsty Macpherson)
...proposed development must
justify a countryside location and
avoid environmental impacts, and
avoid unacceptable traffic....
OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)
we welcome criterion a. of Policy E7, although we would like to see "historic significance" included, as part of the positive strategy for the conservation and enjoyment of, and the clear strategy for enhancing, the historic environment required by paragraphs 126 and 157 of the National Planning Policy Framework. However, we would also welcome encouragement of proposals that would bring a historic building back into sustainable use or otherwise support a heritage asset as part of that strategy.
