Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - NE3 River and stream corridors
OBJECT Natural England (Ms Kirsty Macpherson)
There is no requirement for the
monitoring and evaluation of
biodiversity or GI works. Installing
the required plants and physical
works is only the first stage. How
will you know if implementation was
successful? How will you know if the
GI is providing the ecosystem
services it was designed for? How
will you know if the habitat created
is providing habitat for the desired
SUPPORT Wendover Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group (Mr Jonathan Clover)
The SG generally welcomes the above Policies and looks to develop its own local
policies to enhance and protect the green environment appropriately.
OBJECT The Environment Agency (Michelle Kidd)
We are pleased with and support this policy. We are happy to see that you have
included some of the wording we suggested in our regulation 18 response to the draft local plan. However the following wording additions and deletions would make this policy clearer
OBJECT Persimmon Homes North London represented by Woolf Bond Planning (Mr Steven Brown)
Whilst we have no particular objection for these to be set out as a policy
aspiration, we are concerned that this wording is overly restrictive and could serve
to prevent otherwise sustainable development from coming forward. The extent to
any buffer zone is best determined on a case by case basis and not a blanket
district wide approach.
OBJECT Wates Developments Ltd. represented by Boyer Planning Ltd (Jonathan Liberman)
The Policy requires a 10m ecological buffer but a 4m buffer is considered appropriate by the Lead Local Flood Authority and as such we recommend that the buffer is amended to 4m.
SUPPORT Berkshire, Buckinghamshire & Oxfordshire Wildlife Trust (Mr Neil Rowntree)
We support these policies which are necessary in order to comply with NPPF requirements regarding biodiversity and the natural environment, and the NERC Act (2006) duty with regard to biodiversity.
Note that we are aware that the Natural Environment Partnership (the NEP, which is the equivalent of a Local Nature Partnership in Buckinghamshire) is asking for a modification with respect to the supporting text of Policy I1 Green Infrastructure. We support that modification which in the interests of brevity we do not repeat here - please refer to the NEP response.
OBJECT Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Conservation Board (Dr Lucy Murfett)
The Chilterns Conservation Board supports this policy but would like to see the buffer of "at least" 10 metres.
OBJECT The Canal & River Trust (Jane Hennell)
The Canal & River Trust urge the to council to consider a stand alone canal related policy, or an amendment to Policy NE 3 to include the canal and its arms.
Officer Note: changed from support to Object - due to criticism
