Representation ID: 2670

OBJECT Barwood LaSalle Land Limited Partnership represented by WYG (Mr Keith Fenwick)

Summary:

Paragraphs 1.9 to 1.12 outline the Council's actions in respect of the Duty to Cooperate with neighbouring authorities. Despite the allocation included within the Proposed Submission Plan at South West Milton Keynes, which immediately adjoins the administrative boundary with Milton Keynes, there are no details contained within the plan relating to the activities and discussions undertaken between Aylesbury Vale and Milton Keynes Councils. It is also noted that the Proposed Submission Plan: MK refers to the preparation of a Memorandum of Understanding with Aylesbury Vale, but there is no mention of this within this Proposed Submission Plan.

OBJECT South West Milton Keynes Consortium represented by Carter Jonas - Associate SWMK Consortium (Mr Brian Flynn)

Summary:

PSVALP should address the role of Milton Keynes Council through the DtC process for the strategic cross boundary matters of housing and transport and we request that further information is provided to demonstrate this. The suggested MoU/Statement of Common Ground may address this.

PSVALP should explain the extent of cooperation with Milton Keynes on housing, economic and transport infrastructure matters.

Representation ID: 1910

OBJECT Home Builders Federation Ltd (Mr Mark Behrendt)

Summary:

it would have been beneficial for all parties had the authorities in the HMA taken a more strategic approach in preparing their Plans to allow housing needs to be considered by a single inspector. This enables the approach to assessing and meeting housing needs for an HMA to be considered just once and would avoid repetition of debates. We have seen across the Country that a decision on OAN for an HMA at one EIP can make it difficult for any inspector at subsequent EIPs using the same evidence to potentially disagree with a colleague.

Representation ID: 1898

OBJECT Thornborough Parish Council (Maggie Beach)

Summary:

* Co-operation between neighbouring districts - There appears to be an assumption that unmet needs identified from other neighbouring districts to the south can be met by housing allocations in the north of the district,, while there also appears to have been little consultation or co-operation with neighbouring district councils to the north - South Oxfordshire District Council; Cherwell District Council; South Northants District Council and Milton Keynes Council.

Representation ID: 1753

OBJECT Ainscough Strategic Land represented by Turley Associates (Taylor Cherrett)

Summary:

not clear how this could proceed in the context of the Standardised OAN Methodology
or the infrastructure enhancements envisaged within the District (e.g. the Oxford to
Cambridge Arc). In essence, it is unclear that an early review would be effective in
addressing these complex cross-boundary issues and ASL consider that more needs to
be done now to address these complex issues and principally the housing need.

Representation ID: 1724

OBJECT Persimmon Homes Ltd., and CALA homes Ltd represented by Turley Associates (Mr Christopher Roberts)

Summary:

The Proposed Submission Local
Plan has been prepared on the basis of the MOU and accordingly, the Plan proposes to
make provision for 8,000 dwellings to meet the unmet needs of the aforementioned
Authorities. However, we raise a number of concerns regarding the likely outcomes of
the Proposed Submission Local Plan's approach.

Representation ID: 1525

OBJECT Bellway Homes represented by Turley Associates (Mr Christopher Roberts)

Summary:

The Proposed Submission Local Plan has been prepared on the basis of the MOU and accordingly, the Plan proposes to make provision for 8,000 dwellings to meet the unmet needs of the aforementioned Authorities. However, we raise a number of concerns regarding the likely outcomes of the Proposed Submission Local Plan's approach.

Firstly, it is clear that the extent of unmet need arising from adjoining authorities remains uncertain.

Secondly, the functional housing market area geographies affecting the district are, in reality, more complex and overlapping, than presently acknowledged in the Proposed Submission Local Plan.

Representation ID: 1445

SUPPORT South Oxfordshire District Council (Mr. Ryan Hunt)

Summary:

It is important to maintain officer and member level Duty to Co-operate dialogue to better
understand the issues above and any other issues that may impact on each council in-order to
positively plan for development and mitigate impacts. SODC looks forward to finalising a formal
Memorandum of Understanding with AVDC which is currently being drafted, as well as a wider
Memorandum of Understanding/ Statement of Common Ground on cross-border transport matters
which is also proposed to include Wycombe District Council and the respective County Councils.

Representation ID: 1186

OBJECT Newton Longville Parish Council (Mr Mike Galloway)

Summary:

AVDC need to demonstrate far more action to show compliance with the duty to cooperate, which must be with all relevant bodies throughout the plan making process to avoid the risk of another plan being rejected for the similar reasons as the last attempt. The duty to cooperate only applies up to the point of submission when control of the process passes to the Inspector. Failure to comply with the duty to cooperate cannot then be corrected by subsequent action. It is hoped that AVDC have in fact complied with the duty to cooperate but have not produced sufficient evidence.

Representation ID: 1127

OBJECT LIFE BUILD Solutions Limited represented by Carter Jonas (Mr Jamie Stanley)

Summary:

The approach of the Council and other Buckinghamshire authorities to create a 'best fit' HMA for the convenience of their plan making strikes against positively prepared Plan-Making and fails to comply with the legal DTC, the sole mechanism for ensuring the needs of the region are suitably met within Plan making.
Accordingly, we do not consider the Plan to be positively prepared or effective, and therefore fails to comply with paragraph 182 of the NPPF. Furthermore, to-date, the DTC has not be sufficiently complied with.

Representation ID: 1020

OBJECT Thakeham (Ms Judith Onuh)

Summary:

Whilst we welcome AVDC recognition of its shared responsibility of meeting unmet housing need within the HMA, we are concerned that this is based upon a flawed Housing Economic Development Assessment (HEDNA) that seeks to significantly reduce housing need within the HMA. We are particularly concerned that the latest HEDNA report has reduced the demographic starting point for AVDC and subsequently its objectively assessed housing need (OAHN), which has provided a greater opportunity for the needs of the other authorities in the HMA to be met.

Representation ID: 1000

OBJECT Home Builders Federation Ltd (Mr Mark Behrendt)

Summary:

concerned that this co-operation is based on a housing needs assessment that seeks to significantly reduce the overall level of housing need for the HMA compared to official projections. In particular the latest assessment of housing need has reduced the demographic starting point for AVDC, and subsequently its objective assessed housing need (OAN). This has in turn provided greater scope for the needs of the other authorities in the HMA to be met by AVDC. We consider the approach to assessing housing needs is flawed and that there is significantly less capacity in AVDC than is being suggested.

Representation ID: 828

SUPPORT The Canal & River Trust (Jane Hennell)

Summary:

Thank you for consulting the Canal & River Trust on the submission version of the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan.

We would highlight that Dacorum Borough Council have stated an intention to continue to include a canal related policy within their updated plan, and in order to properly consider the canal as a cross boundary asset perhaps the council should consider doing the same?

Representation ID: 567

OBJECT Marrons Planning (Jane Gardner)

Summary:

The Plan fails the duty to cooperate in that the provision of the Bletchley Southern Bypass has not been addressed by the Council in liaison with the neighbouring authority of Milton Keynes.
