SUPPORT The Lear Family represented by Bidwells (Mr Derek Bromley)

Summary:

We act on behalf of members of the Lear family who own land within Policy D1, Site Aylesbury north of A41 (D/AGT3) which is identified as part of the Aylesbury Garden Town. Our clients endorse the general policies regarding the Garden Town and confirm their commitment to ensuring the deliverability of the proposed allocation.

OBJECT Mr Peter Hoare

Summary:

D-AGT3 does not provide effective solutions or is totally inadequate for the development proposals.

Representation ID: 2576

OBJECT Natural England (Ms Kirsty Macpherson)

Summary:

Is this the only development site
that requires ecological mitigation?
The other sites hold similar
constraints. Consistency in the site
specific policies is important. A
reference to NE1-9 may be a more
consistent way of dealing with this.

Representation ID: 2575

OBJECT Natural England (Ms Kirsty Macpherson)

Summary:

By including the words "where
practicable" you allow for the
possibly of destruction of priority
habitats and the loss of biodiversity.
For the woodlands and hedgerows
there is already the word "should"
instead of "will" which lessens the
strength of the policy and allows
arguments against retaining habitat
features.

OBJECT Unknown (Mr Peter Bantham)

Summary:

The effect on the A41 for the amount of development in this location will be catastrophic, and is not justified

More details about Rep ID: 2507

Representation ID: 2479

OBJECT Mr Damian Campbell

Summary:

The same comments on D-AGT1South hold here. The effect of traffic on the town centre and commuting to North Aylesbury will have a severe impact on the local transport system especially the A41. The part of the VALP is therefore not justified nor effective.

Representation ID: 2389

OBJECT The Environment Agency (Michelle Kidd)

Summary:

AGT3 - Aylesbury north of A41

We have records that indicate a historic landfill may be present in the vicinity of Weston
Mead Farm. Although the exact location is not mapped. This may have implications for
development in terms of site layout and investigations/remediation. We expect the
groundwater aquifers to be protected from pollution.

Representation ID: 2357

OBJECT Mr Andrew Smith

Summary:

Once again, this development will penalise traffic flows on the A41.

Representation ID: 2338

OBJECT The Environment Agency (Michelle Kidd)

Summary:

WTV017 (Westonmead Farm)


Due to the large areas here which are proposed for development, we expect a cohesive
plan for all sites to ensure that maximum biodiversity benefits are achieved.

Representation ID: 2335

OBJECT The Environment Agency (Michelle Kidd)

Summary:

BIE022 Manor Farm, Broughton

Although the watercourse falls just outside of the boundary of the site, we would still
expect to see it buffered from within the site to a distance of at least 10 metres. Any
development proposals on this greenfield site should be put forward as part of a
coherent plan which includes the adjacent two allocation sites WTV018 and WTV017.

Representation ID: 2260

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Chris & Shirley Bull

Summary:

The amount of development in this location will have a severe impact on the local transport system especially the A41, which is already extremely congested at peak times. We are also concerned at the lack of proposed water management strategies for an area known locally as the "floodlands" as it is frequently under water. New flood water retention areas will need to be found and then monitored and managed in perpetuity in accordance with Natural England and Environment Agency guidelines.

Representation ID: 2246

OBJECT Mrs Jane Chilman

Summary:

The sheer amount of development (Woodlands, MDA site etc.) in this area will have a severe impact on the local transport system, in particular the A41. The sensitive nature of the flood plain has not been though rally examined and the sequential test has been shown to fail in relation to the plans before the council.

Summary:

The amount of development in this location will have a severe impact on the local transport system especially the A41. Not Justified nor Effective.

Representation ID: 2109

OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)

Summary:

The Master Plan for this site should provide for the retention and maintenance of a suitable setting for these listed structures. In addition, the Master Plan for the site should be informed by the Buckinghamshire Historic Landscape Character Assessment and Historic Environment Record, with the synthesis of any existing archaeological investigations and further archaeological investigation if necessary, with the conservation of historic landscape features and archaeological remains a site-specific requirement.

Representation ID: 1990

OBJECT Mrs Stephanie Schneider

Summary:

The large amount of development will have a severe, detrimental impact on the transport system in and around Aylesbury. It would also be in very close proximity to Aston Clinton. It is not justified, sound or effective.

Representation ID: 1885

OBJECT GRE Assets represented by Lichfields (Mr. Myles Smith)

Summary:

The new settlement north of the A41 is expected to begin delivering in 2022/23 (c30 dwellings). the site has been brought forward by Buckinghamshire Advantage, the delivery arm of the Buckinghamshire Thames Valley LEP. the site required delivery of key infrastructure including flood alleviation. the HLSSD assumes the site will delivery c180 dwellings per annum but GRE consider it is unreasonable to assume such a high delivery rate.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Peter & Jane Chilman

Summary:

The sheer amount of development (Woodlands, MDA site etc.) in this area will have a severe impact on the local transport system, in particular the A41.

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

Summary:

The policy and the supporting text appear to be contradictory and it is therefore unclear
over what period the Council expects the site to come forward. This raises further
questions in terms of phasing. For example, assuming that outline planning application
Ref. 16/01040/AOP is approved, the wording of the proposed policy suggest that the
Council would be reluctant to facilitate the approval of subsequent reserved matters /
discharge of conditions before the Masterplan SPD is in place.

OBJECT Mr William Spear

Summary:

The A41 in particular will be adversely affected by the planned development,, therefore, is neither effective nor justified.

More details about Rep ID: 1663

Representation ID: 1649

OBJECT Mrs Ann Webbley

Summary:

D-AGT1, D-AGT3, D-AGT4, and 4.125 I feel that similar worries are raised by the plans for housing at Woodlands, Hampden Fields, and eventually, Halton. Without considering the impact of so many developments with so many houses in a small part of the district together with their impact on future traffic flows, it is impossible to view the plan as effective.

Representation ID: 1633

OBJECT W K Boxhall

Summary:

All will result in significant strains to the local transport system and in particular the A41, A413 and the Gyratory system.

More details about Rep ID: 1633

Representation ID: 1547

OBJECT Mr Richard Wise

Summary:

D-AGT3 Aylesbury north of A41
The volume of development here will have a severe impact on the transport system, particularly the A41 and A413, so traffic will seek alternative routes through already traffic-swamped villages.
This is not justified nor effective.

Representation ID: 1481

OBJECT Weston Mead Farm Limited represented by Nexus Planning Ltd (Mr Oliver Bell)

Summary:

Support the identification of land at Weston Mead Farm limited as an appropriate location for housing
and can confirm that the land is available for housing. However, it is considered that Policy D-AGT3
should be amended as follows:
* express housing numbers as a minimum;
* remove the restriction on housing development in the northern part of the site;
* amend the requirement to provide 50% green infrastructure to a more flexible approach;
* removal of the requirement for a Masterplan SPD; and
* The SA is amended to change the scoring in respect of site WTV017 for Forestry Inventory
Woodland.

OBJECT Thames Water (Sir/ Madam )

Summary:

The water network , wastewater capacity in this area is unlikely to be able to support the demand anticipated from this development. The developer is encouraged to work with Thames Water early on in the planning process to understand what water infrastructure is required, where , when and how it will be delivered.

Summary:

D-AGT3 Aylesbury north of A41 (Woodlands)

Traffic and infrastructure nightmare, with no guarantee of funding and implementation at the appropriate time.

OBJECT Sarah Way

Summary:

The amount of development in this location will have a severe impact on the local transport system especially the A41. Every morning and evening there is already a queue of traffic to get into Aylesbury, that goes from the traffic lights at Bedgrove right back to the start of the duel carriageway (approx. a mile) how on earth can they consider building more houses without building a by-pass of Aylesbury FIRST. Not Justified or Effective.

Representation ID: 1238

OBJECT NHS (Helen Delaitre)

Summary:

CCGs will no longer support the establishment of new single-handed GP practices and would only wish to fund new practices that can cater for at least 10,000 population. With this in mind, we welcome the opportunity to work as a collective with AVDC and the developers to design a future proof solution that can provide exemplary primary care provision for the increasing population.

Delivery will be subject to the availability of funding and developer contributions.

OBJECT Clearwater Properties (Mr Alvin Mark Lindley)

Summary:

Support the identification of land at Weston Mead Farm limited as an appropriate location for housing and can confirm that the land is available for housing. However, it is considered that Policy D-AGT3 should be amended to remove the restriction on housing development in the northern part of the site and increase the assumed capacity to 280 dwellings.

SUPPORT Mr David Lear represented by Carter Jonas (Mr Peter Canavan)

Summary:

On behalf of the landowners, Carter Jonas fully supports the allocation of land at Manor Farm, Broughton within the site known as "Aylesbury north of A41" to accommodate circa 350 dwellings. The site is both deliverable and developable, being available now, offering a suitable location for residential development and being capable of being viably developed as proposed in the draft Policy.

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

Summary:

This is looking one way only, views to the Chilterns AONB from the site. More important are views from the Chilterns AONB towards Aylesbury. Very careful consideration needs to be exercised for expansion below the scarp slope of the Chilterns. The views out of the AONB from key e.g. from Coombe Hill and along the Ridgeway National Trail, are some of the most important views in the Chilterns, central to the public's recreational enjoyment of the AONB. These are nationally important places on a National Trail, which should be protected for current and future generations to enjoy.

Discussions need to take place with the Canal & River Trust in relation to development which may be at risk of flooding from the Tring reservoirs.

Officer Note: changed from support to Object - due to criticism

Representation ID: 796

SUPPORT Clearwater Properties (Mr Alvin Mark Lindley)

Summary:

Policy D-AGT3 as being 11.5ha in size allocation should be amended for two reasons
An application has been submitted for 177 dwellings on Southern part.
A design is ready for consultation for 103 dwellings on the Northern part. Landscape concerns are resolved, the land is not within flood plain. The proposed road bridge crossing the brook has been approved in pre-app with Environmental Agency.
The site is brown field, the northern side contains significant redundant farm buildings.
The site is sustainable, desirable, able to support 280 dwellings which are deliverable within a relatively short time frame.

OBJECT Peter Brett Associates LLP (Mr Tim Coleby)

Summary:

Under 'Implementation Approach' "towards the latter end of the Plan period" does not apply to Aylesbury Woodlands, where BA hopes to start in 2019 with commencement of construction of the first Phase (in summary, the ELRS and business area) and follow on soon after with residential phases. This section therefore needs restructuring.

Representation ID: 772

OBJECT Peter Brett Associates LLP (Mr Tim Coleby)

Summary:

* In point 'k' the words "should be preserved as green space" would more appropriately be phrased "should be laid out for uses compatible with these Flood Zones". Otherwise the wording is too restrictive and not compatible with the wording of point 'm'.
* In point t), this should read "provision for ..." (rather than 'of').

More details about Rep ID: 772

Representation ID: 771

OBJECT Peter Brett Associates LLP (Mr Tim Coleby)

Summary:

* In point g, it is unclear what is meant by the 'Garden Community' and this should be clarified here.
* In point h, the meaning of "town-wide" flood defences is unclear. The Woodlands development does not increase flood risk to third parties, and provides as much betterment as is possible but is limited by the local hydraulics and land ownership. We suggest the reference to "town-wide" is removed therefore.

More details about Rep ID: 771

Representation ID: 770

OBJECT Peter Brett Associates LLP (Mr Tim Coleby)

Summary:

* In points b) and c), it appears that the Woodlands development may be expected to provide infrastructure and facilities without which housing development on the other three development areas (and potentially other developments in the locality) would not be sustainable. Account needs to be taken of the financial burden on the Woodlands development and the effect that has on development viability. A mechanism should be identified to cross-fund such supporting infrastructure/facilities.

Representation ID: 769

OBJECT Peter Brett Associates LLP (Mr Tim Coleby)

Summary:

* In point a), whilst BA understands the sense of maintaining the individual identity of the villages referred to this does not apply to the 'existing urban edge' and this reference should be omitted as in fact a 'new urban edge' will be created as a result of the allocated development.
*

Representation ID: 768

OBJECT Peter Brett Associates LLP (Mr Tim Coleby)

Summary:

'Site-specific requirements a) to u)':

* The way this section is structured needs reconsideration as, with four 'sub' developments it is not clear which of them should address the site specific requirements listed. By way of example, it is not clear to which of the development areas sub-sections 'o', 'p' and 'q' relate.
* The final sentence in the introductory paragraph also needs rewording, for the same reason.

Representation ID: 767

OBJECT Peter Brett Associates LLP (Mr Tim Coleby)

Summary:

In the bullet points:

* in addition to the uses listed it should include "around 3,500 sq m Leisure facilities (A1/A3/A4)" as this is part of the agreed Woodlands development.
* The reference to hotel and conference centre should refer to "around 6,000 sqm" not '5,000'.
* The references against 'Open Space' (12th bullet point) are inappropriately detailed, especially when the form of development within the Manor Farm, Westonmead Farm and College Farm areas is not yet known. This bullet point should simply read "Supporting open space including play areas, informal open spaces, allotments/ community orchards and woodland."

SUPPORT Cole and Partners (Mr Adrian Cole)

Summary:

The college farm site is intended to be brought forward once the adjoining development of Woodlands has commenced allowing for necessary infrastructure services, implementation period is unlikely to commence for approx. 3 years.

SUPPORT Cole and Partners (Mr Adrian Cole)

Summary:

We support paragraph 4.51 relating to college farm and the allocation for 250 dwellings.

Representation ID: 556

OBJECT Mr Harry Czapski

Summary:

Traffic lights, don't solve the problem of traffic decongestion, they just make queuing fairer.
Without new orbital roads being implemented BEFORE any new housing developments are sanctioned, the already dire traffic problems experienced along the A41 at certain times of day will not only worsen at peak times but soon become chronic throughout the day. This cannot be in the interests of either the local population, local transport or companies that require regular access to central Aylesbury and beyond.

having read through the whole plan, frankly I can't see anything positive to say about any of the plan

Representation ID: 420

OBJECT Hampden Fields Action Group (Dr Glynn White)

Summary:

The quantum of development in this location will leave a severe residual impact on the local transport system especially the A41. The sensitive nature of the flood plain has not been adequately considered and the sequential test has been shown to fail in relation to plans before the Council.
