Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 2.6

Representation ID: 2699

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

Summary:

The spatial strategy should provide a further and particular recognition of the role of Buckingham in the vision for the District. Aylesbury Garden Town is now prioritised as the first location for growth in the District. In contrast Buckingham is treated in the same terms as Haddenham Winslow and Wendover (and other settlements). The approach is one of constraint and does not reflect the positive vision or opportunities for the town. The importance of prioritising development at both Aylesbury and Buckingham ahead of other settlements and locations is necessary for the Plan to be sound and positively prepared and effective.

OBJECT Buckingham Town Council (Councillor Robin Stuchbury)

Summary:

There is very little in the Plan to deliver objective 3(a) and vision f. In fact there are no strategic policies regarding education, so it is difficult to see how this will be delivered and thus goes to the soundness of the Plan. Whilst provisions are made within site allocations eg Salden Chase, the accumulated effect of a number of smaller developments within an area such as Buckingham [especially when Maids Moreton allocation is also included] means that no one site would be large enough on which to require a new school. There is no delivery strategy for such need.

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

Summary:

concerned that the strategic objectives contained in Paragraph 2.6 also fail to mention the role that development on the edge of Milton Keynes could make to those objectives; and ignores the opportunities of delivering housing in sustainable locations and connecting new development with significant transport infrastructure projects that are available in this area. The strategic objectives as currently drafted appear inconsistent with Policy S2: Spatial Strategy for Growth which does refer to the strategy's inclusion of strategic scale development on the edge of Milton Keynes.

OBJECT North Bucks Parishes Planning Consortium (Mr Geoff Culverhouse)

Summary:

There is very little in the Plan to deliver this vision. In fact there are no strategic policies regarding education, so it is difficult to see how this will be delivered and thus goes to the soundness of the Plan.

OBJECT High Speed 2 Limited (HS2 Ltd) (Sir/Madam )

Summary:

P27 refers to working with partners to deliver broadband/telecoms along the HS2 route. Department for Transport led on this matter, as the recommendation was essentially aimed at Government, rather than HS2 per se. The Government response to the House of Commons Select Committee final report essentially said that DfT would work with DCMS on the issue.

OBJECT Manlet Group Holdings represented by Barton Willmore LLP (Ms Jane Harrison)

Summary:

Plan does not allocate housing development at Wendover on basis of the objectives

Representation ID: 1515

SUPPORT Lands Improvement Holdings (LIH) represented by Savills Oxford (Reece Lemon)

Summary:

Objective 4 is supported. After growth at Aylesbury, the VALP directs growth to the other strategic settlements
including Buckingham, Haddenham, Winslow and Wendover.

Representation ID: 1514

SUPPORT Lands Improvement Holdings (LIH) represented by Savills Oxford (Reece Lemon)

Summary:

The principle of providing for the housing and employment needs of the new and existing population, including
unmet needs from elsewhere if reasonable and sustainable is supported, as per Objective 2 (Paragraph 2.6).
This objective is consistent with the relevant provisions of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF).

Representation ID: 1513

SUPPORT Lands Improvement Holdings (LIH) represented by Savills Oxford (Reece Lemon)

Summary:

Objective 1 (Paragraph 2.6) outlines that provision will be made for balanced sustainable growth which will
deliver new housing and jobs to meet the needs of new and existing residents through a flexible and pro-active
approach to promoting sustainable development which includes a combination of new allocations, protection
of existing sites, redevelopment of previously developed land and a more intensive use or conversion of existing
sites. To ensure a more robust and sound approach in delivering sustainable growth over the plan period, this
objective should make reference to reserve sites at strategic settlements. This matter is discussed throughout
this representation.

Representation ID: 1191

OBJECT Newton Longville Parish Council (Mr Mike Galloway)

Summary:

There is a clear contradiction between what is here and the allocation of sites around Newton Longville (or Whaddon as in previous version of VALP). It is not clear that in all cases there are strategic or delivery policies to cover all aspects within the vision and strategic objectives. Objective 3 within paragraph lists a number of matters to be secured, however not all of what is then listed is provided for within subsequent
policies. There should be a clear commitment to "I before E" - that infrastructure is
provided before expansion.

SUPPORT Buckinghamshire Fire & Rescue Service (Mr Staurt Gowanlock)

Summary:

We note, in particular, the significant expansion of Aylesbury to the East and North-West and the designation of Wendover / Halton Camp as a strategic settlement. We will consider and advise inclusion of fire services at point d as part of this. This should largely consist of ensuring adequate provision of fire-fighting infrastructure such as of the potential implications of this for fire cover along this axis as we develop our 2020-25 Public Safety Plan together with any potential requirements for new fire station and / or 'standby' facilities for fire crews which may generate the need for land allocations.

Representation ID: 1031

SUPPORT Rectory Homes Limited (Mr Tim Northey)

Summary:

We welcome the identification of a key strategic objective for the plan of delivering "balanced sustainable growth" to meet the needs of new and existing residents. Similarly, the identification of an objective to promote the enhancement of the district's town and local centres, together with village facilities is supported.

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

Summary:

Chilterns Conservation Board would like to see the setting of the Chilterns AONB referred to in the objectives. Development in the setting of the AONB can harm the AONB. The setting of the AONB is the area within which development and land management proposals, by virtue of their nature, size, scale, siting, materials or design could have an impact on the natural beauty and special qualities of the AONB. Please see the Chilterns Conservation Board's Position Statement on Development Affecting the Setting of the Chilterns AONB available here www.chilternsaonb.org/conservation-board/planning-development.html which contains advice on harm and principles for avoiding harm.

Representation ID: 751

SUPPORT Peter Brett Associates LLP (Mr Tim Coleby)

Summary:

BA supports the Vision and Objectives, particularly objective 4 and its reference to an "Aylesbury Garden Town first" approach to development allocations.

Representation ID: 672

SUPPORT Whaddon Parish Council (Ms Suzanne Lindsey)

Summary:

2.6 WPC wholeheartedly supports the 'Objectives' table, and especially no. 4, which promotes a capacity led development approach in accordance with settlement hierarchy. This should guarantee that the best economic results will be delivered to Aylesbury Vale, as opposed to adjoining districts such as Milton Keynes.

Representation ID: 572

OBJECT Marrons Planning (Jane Gardner)

Summary:

2: As the Council has committed to meeting the unmet need of 8,000 dwellings arising in the Councils to the south of the District, this issue should not be the subject of on-going consideration once the Plan has been adopted.

4: There is no reference to the provision within the Local Plan for the sustainable growth of Milton Keynes and Bletchley which will have occurred within AVDC's administrative area by the end of the plan period.

Representation ID: 545

OBJECT The Buckingham Society (Carolyn Cumming)

Summary:

When referring to housing growth, "homes" is NOT an appropriate term. residential units are 'houses', 'dwellings', 'apartments'. The only exception is 'Care Home'.

Representation ID: 198

OBJECT The University of Buckingham represented by Delta Planning (Maria Sheridan)

Summary:

Objection is raised to paragraph 2.6 part 4 that promotes a capacity-led approach to delivering housing. This is a change in emphasis from previous iterations of the plan that promoted a strategy that provided a proportion of housing to settlements throughout the District. The previous approach included 70 dwellings being allocated at Gawcott and now through utilising the capacity based approach there are no new allocations at this settlement. It is considered that the previous approach is a more sustainable way of delivering housing and ensuring that a proportionate level of housing is provided across the District.
