Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 1.7
OBJECT Revera Limited (Mr Renshaw Watts) represented by Pegasus Group (Mr Rob Riding)
Paragraph 1.7 of the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan (VALP) suggests Government policy is to deliver 250,000 homes per annum nationally. This figure is not identified in Government policy. The most recent evidence of required number of homes identified as at least 300,000 per annum in July 2016. Government responded to this and are currently consulting on a national distribution to deliver at least 266,000 new homes per annum nationally. Reference in paragraph 1.7 conflicts with available evidence and also suggests that the VALP has been prepared with the objective of delivering a level of housing below that required nationally
OBJECT Waldridge Garden Village Consortium represented by Pegasus Group (on behalf of Jeremy Elgin) (Mr Neil Tiley)
The VALP has not been prepared in accordance with the national housing need identified in the most recent evidence of the Government.
OBJECT CALA Homes represented by Pegasus Group (Ms Laura Humphries)
The HEDNA adopts inconsistent assumptions to reduce the OAN. This is not consistent with the national policy justified, effective or positive. Once the OAN is consistently calculated the VALP will nee to make provision for additional supply (including the new settlement/s).
The proposed distribution has also not been agreed with Milton Keynes and is likely to be prejudicial to future delivery at Milton Keynes. Until the distribution has been agreed between the Councils, the duty to co-operate has not been met.
OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)
We see these environmental issues as being no less significant than the commitment to sustainable economic growth and the requirement that councils should boost significantly the supply of housing. Paragraph 7 of the NPPF makes it clear that there are three dimensions to "sustainable development".
It is therefore inaccurate for the Local Plan to just emphasise the NPPF's references to economic growth and housing supply and we consider the Plan not to be sound in its failure to be consistent with national planning policy in this respect.
