Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - NE4 The Chilterns AONB and setting

Representation ID: 2583

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

Representation ID: 1260

OBJECT Chiltern Society (Mr Colin Blundel)


However, the policy refers to 'major developments' in the AONB and suggests they are defined by national policy. The NPPF does not define 'major developments' and case law has concluded that its meaning in relation to AONBs is different to that used to describe planning applications based on the number of houses.
The policy could be made more effective by adding some text to define how the Council would define 'major development' in an AONB context.

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 and welcomes the inclusion of this policy, which is based on joint work to create a consistent Chilterns-wide AONB policy carried out with our Planning Forum of local policy officers. However some changes have been introduced which have made NE4 quite hard to follow e.g. introducing a distinction between major and non-major development with only criteria a, d and e applying to non-major development. If continuing this approach, it would be better if f-m applied to all development, whilst removing the requirement for every non-major development to carry out landscape and visual impact assessment.
