Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - D-AGT6 Kingsbrook
OBJECT Natural England (Ms Kirsty Macpherson)
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
OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)
outline planning permission has already been granted for the Kingsbrook site and that reserved matters consent has been granted for two of the "villages". However, we would still welcome the retention and enhancement of historic landscape features and archaeological remains to be a site-specific requirement in accordance with the protection afforded to such assets by the National Planning Policy Framework, as part of the positive strategy for the conservation and enjoyment of, and the clear strategy for enhancing, the historic environment required by paragraphs 126 and 157 of the Framework and in compliance with principle j of Policy D1.
OBJECT Ainscough Strategic Land represented by Turley Associates (Taylor Cherrett)
Whilst the allocation is now starting to deliver, as with Berryfields, we would remark as
to the capacity of the market at Aylesbury to absorb the consented dwellings, in addition
to those proposed in other allocations, within the timescales described at paragraph
4.99 of the draft Local Plan.
OBJECT Persimmon Homes Ltd., and CALA homes Ltd represented by Turley Associates (Mr Christopher Roberts)
seeks to deliver 2,450 dwellings, noting that the
site already benefits from an extant consent for 2,450 dwellings underref. 10/02649/AOP. The draft Local Plan states at paragraph 4.91 that
reserved matters for 1,353 dwellings have been granted, with 300 dwellings being under
construction or having been completed. Whilst the allocation is now starting to deliver,
as with Berryfields, we would express concerns as to the capacity of the housing market
at Aylesbury to absorb the consented dwellings, in addition to those proposed in other
allocations, within the timescales described at paragraph 4.99 of the Proposed
Submission Local Plan.
OBJECT Sport England (South East Region) (Office Manager
Policy AGT6 - it is noted that the proposals include a secondary school. The Council should seek to ensure that these facilities are dual-use and made available to the community. Sport England has guidance on using school facilities and securing community use agreements which may be of interest to the Council; https://www.sportengland.org/facilities-planning/use-our-school/
OBJECT NHS (Helen Delaitre)
we would like Barratt Homes to consider supporting the use of Poplar Grove Surgery as the primary health care provider for Kingsbrook. ed in 2014, supported by a stable and committed workforce. To accommodate the extra patients there would be a requirement to modify the current Poplar Grove premises, by building an extension on the current building to accommodate the full quota of patients in preparation for the completion of the development. We would seek to secure an allocation from the Section 106 to fund this proposal.
OBJECT Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty Conservation Board (Dr Lucy Murfett)
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.
SUPPORT Royal Society For Protection Of Birds (RSPB) (Mr Colin Wilkinson)
The RSPB particularly supports clauses D and H of this allocation/policy. For the rationale, please refer to our comments on draft Policy D1 and the attached letter dated 19-9-16.
