Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - NE5 Landscape character and locally important landscape

Representation ID: 2584

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

OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)


we find having two levels of landscape significance categorisation below the nationally important AONBs; Areas of Attractive Landscapes and Local Landscape Areas, confusing. The policy does not appear to distinguish in its approach between AALs and LLAs which begs the question why have the two designations

OBJECT Careys New Homes represented by Bidwells (Mr Robert Love)


site was subject to outline
planning application. AVDC's Landscape Officer had no objections to the proposed development of the
site. The Officer stated that there will be significant and adverse landscape impact on the site itself but
these effects will not extend beyond the site boundary due to the existence of landscape enclosures as
well as proposed reinforcement. Adequate visual mitigation is proposed to limit the visual effects to the
extent they would cease to be significant in the longer term. With regards to settlement identity the proposal
responds well to the existing settlement pattern in the existing wider settlement.

OBJECT CALA Homes represented by Pegasus Group (Ms Laura Humphries)


Policy NE5 is overly restrictive with regard to development affecting Areas of Attractive Landscape and this does not accord with the NPPF.

OBJECT Wates Developments Ltd. represented by Boyer Planning Ltd (Jonathan Liberman)


It may not be desirable to 'reflect' local character if that character is not attractive or coherent and a new development could arguably improve on that. Amending the policy as suggested would allow for what is good and distinctive in the local context to be acknowledged.

OBJECT Richborough Estates represented by RPS Planning & Development (Mr Cameron Austin-Fell)


The policy does not allow for a balancing approach to development (as per Policy NE1) and should be re-drafted.
Stating development should be grouped is not specific and needs to be removed or defined.
The policy also needs amending to place less rigid reliance upon the 2008 Aylesbury Vale Landscape Character Assessment.

OBJECT Gladman Developments Ltd (Ms Nicole Penfold)


Further work is required to provide the robust justification for these designations and to ensure that the designations and policy are Framework compliant.

Representation ID: 1549

OBJECT Barwood Land and Estates represented by Chilmark Consulting Ltd (Mike Taylor)


Given the magnitude of changes within the landscape since 2008 and the flawed and limited extent of
the 2008 AVLCA, there needs to be a complete and comprehensive re-assessment of the character
areas for the VALP to be based on sound and accurate evidence.

The policy NE5 evidence base is fundamentally flawed and is unsound in its consideration of
landscape sensitivity and the approach taken when identifying land that may be suitable for
development based on its condition and inherent sensitivity, without giving due weight to the value of
the landscape.

inconsistent with the NPPF at paragraph 113.

OBJECT Great & Little Kimble cum Marsh Parish Council represented by Mr Neil Homer


We consider this policy is missing a criterion in relation to the potential for visual coalescence between settlements, especially in our Parish as the current gaps between our villages and the major expansion of Princes Risborough to the south and the expanding Garden Town to the north will significantly diminish with the respective growth plans. Policy DM32 of the proposed Wycombe District Local Plan makes such a provision and we consider the same criterion is necessary here, to bring the policy more in to line with its neighbour and with §113 of the NPPF on landscape character.
