Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 2.4

Representation ID: 2725

OBJECT Kier Property represented by Planning Potential (Nona Jones)

Summary:

In light of the increasing demand for housing within the Oxford-Cambridge corridor supported in the Autumn 2017 Budget, we consider that the VALP is not robust enough to support national infrastructure objectives. The implications of such commitments have not been considered adequately within the VALP and we consider that the plan needs to be more longsighted, considering the cumulative impacts of the infrastructure commitments at adoption stage rather than a piecemeal approach. The VALP should include a detailed policy and strategic objective on how they are going to commit to budget spending and contribute towards achieving 1,000,000 homes by 2050.

OBJECT Hallam Land Management represented by David Lock Associates (N Freer)

Summary:

In short, a positive and aspirational growth orientated spatial vision should form the basis for the development of the more detailed polices of the VALP. This would satisfy the requirements of the NPPF, respond to the economic and underlying trends in the area, respond to the Oxford-MK-Cambridge Growth and infrastructure Opportunities and drive the agenda for all agencies involved in its implementation and best meet the needs of all sections of the community.

OBJECT Newton Longville Parish Council (Mr Mike Galloway)

Summary:

Use of mixed numbering as in section 2.4 which is spread over three pages.
It would be better to use a consistent decimal based 1.1.1 type of format
which is far easier to tell what the reference is to a particular part.

Representation ID: 2415

SUPPORT Wendover Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group (Mr Jonathan Clover)

Summary:

We support the principles outlines above for the Parish of Wendover itself.
Given the limited allocation in Wendover (given as 128 in the VALP) it is hoped that
the small scale developments for which planning permission has been granted. Residents
have commented on the need for smaller scale housing with gardens suitable for first
time buyers, or tenants, and the need for retirement housing so older residents can
downsize. They have also commented on the need for integration of new housing
into the community to reflect the place and be of a suitable and appropriate design
style

Representation ID: 2280

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

Summary:

concerned about the current evidence to support the allocation of land at RAF Halton for housing and in particular the decision to identify the site for redevelopment given its location within the Green Belt; and the assessment of the availability and deliverability of the site for development which appears to be uncertain at present. We consider that a robust and objective assessment of the potential for housing delivery must be undertaken before RAF Halton is included as an allocation. As such, we consider that references to redevelopment at RAF Halton should be deleted from the spatial vision.

Representation ID: 2080

OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)

Summary:

supports the references to heritage and cultural assets being protected and, where possible, enhanced, as part of the positive strategy for conserving and enjoying, and clear strategy for enhancing, the historic environment required by paragraphs 126 and 157 of the National Planning Policy Framework.

We also welcome and support the commitments in g.6 to "a renaissance to the town that protects and promotes its historic core" and in i.1. to "heritage......assets protected and where possible enhanced" for the same reason, but do not understand why there is no commitment to the protection and enhancement of the heritage assets in Buckingham.

Representation ID: 1987

OBJECT Edward Ware Homes represented by Pegasus Group (Robert Taylor)

Summary:

Criterion i) states that growth in villages will be according to 'capacity and needs'.
We note that the focus of the NPPF is upon delivering sustainable development, including in rural areas. The NPPF takes a positive approach toward development and calls upon LPA's to find solutions to development and not barriers. Section 7 of the NPPF talks about planning positively for healthy communities and paragraph 55 seeks enhancement of rural communities. The emphasis is to provide the infrastructure to support development, rather than restrict development.

Representation ID: 1907

OBJECT Gallagher Estates Ltd represented by Barton Willmore (Mr Michael Knott)

Summary:

2.4 Paragraph 2.4 of the VALP sets out the
Spatial Vision for the District up to 2033.
Parts g. to i. provide a vision for each
strategic settlement and the rural areas.
No reference is made, however, to Milton
Keynes including land adjoining Milton
Keynes within Aylesbury Vale District as
a location for (strategic) growth). This
includes the opportunity for development
at Eaton Leys which is a sustainable
location for strategic growth.

growth to meet needs and which will contribute to creating a thriving, diverse, safe, vibrant place to live, work
and visit where all residents enjoy a high quality of life. In particular, providing new housing in sustainable

SUPPORT The Hampden Fields Consortium represented by Barton Willmore (Mr Mark Owen)

Summary:

The HFC wish to express their support to the vision and objectives of the Proposed Submission VALP.
In particular, the HFC support the identification of Aylesbury as a strategic settlement (Draft Policy
53), which in January 2017 was given "Garden Town" status. As indicated at paragraph 4.2 of the
Proposed Submission VALP, Aylesbury is identified as playing a substantial and critical role in
delivering growth for the district and the rest of Buckinghamshire. The HFC support this statement.

Representation ID: 912

OBJECT West Haddenham Landowners represented by Stina Hokby

Summary:

In light of the increased requirement for housing in the Oxford Cambridge Corridor, the New Settlement Policy (D2) should be reinstated in the current VALP rather than being deferred to a later plan period.

Alongside the Oxford/Cambridge proposals, the proposed new calculation of OAN will result in an increase in housing numbers both for AVDC and importantly its neighbours on Haddenham's side of the district (e.g. Wycombe).

The West Haddenham Landowners believe that the re-instatement of the New Settlement Policy (D2) would improve the soundness of the VALP and represent positive planning.

Representation ID: 875

OBJECT Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Conservation Board (Dr Lucy Murfett)

Summary:

The coverage of AONB in the vision and strategic objectives does not give 'great weight' to the AONB (as it should under NPPF para 115). It is mentioned once (in relation to Aylesbury being a tourism base for exploring the area) and not at all in the rural areas section of the vision. The Chilterns AONB is an iconic nationally protected landscape, which attracts 55 million visits a year and Aylesbury Vale residents benefit from the health and well-being benefits of having the Chilterns AONB on their doorstep.

SUPPORT Rockspring Hanover Property Unit Trust represented by Castle Planning (Mrs Julia Riddle)

Summary:

Representation ID: 570

OBJECT Marrons Planning (Jane Gardner)

Summary:

It is notable that although the Local Plan provides for "2,212" dwellings on sites adjacent to Milton Keynes (Policies S2 f and Table 1), the Spatial Vision contains no reference to the sustainable growth to Milton Keynes and Bletchley which will have occurred within AVDC's administrative area by the end of the plan period. Further, in view of the scope to provide for significantly more development in this sustainable location, it is incumbent that the Vision fully reflects the opportunity to provide for sustainable development within this area.

Representation ID: 501

OBJECT Mrs Nicky Gregory

Summary:

a. The statement 'The Green Belt will be strongly defined and protected from inappropriate development', is of concern because of the word 'inappropriate' is ambiguous and can be interpreted in many ways. I would like to see complete protection for the Green Belt.

OBJECT National Trust - Waddesdon Estate/Hartwell House (Mr Simon Milliken)

Summary:

Para 2.4 (g) (8) - Important to flag up that both Waddesdon Manor and Hartwell House are both within the ownership of the National Trust, which underpins these properties accessibility and attractiveness as tourist destinations. Indeed, Waddesdon Manor attracts over 400,000 visitors per year.
