Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - 4.126
OBJECT Bloor Homes (Emily Hale)
Land at Bourton Road, Buckingham was assessed in the Site Assessment Site
Submission Version of the Plan, and was referred to as Site 8. The Town Council
concluded that the site could be appropriate for development and was allocated as a
reserve employment site (Site C) in the submission version of the BNDP. However
this was later removed as the allocation employment land was in excess of that
required. This assessment does not support the Council's suggested designation as
SUPPORT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)
we welcome the reference to the Buckingham Conservation Area in paragraph 126 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 National Planning Policy Framework.
OBJECT Crest Strategic Projects represented by Savills Southampton (Mr Jon Gateley)
The VALP proposes to formally allocate two additional sites at Buckingham, over and above the made Buckingham Neighbourhood Plan. to allow development on this site, contrary to the recently made Neighbourhood Plan, would undermine public confidence in the Neighbourhood Planning process to such a significant extent that, in this instance, outweighs all other considerations. As a consequence, this policy should be omitted from this plan with the site being considered as part of a future review of the NDP.
OBJECT Wheeldon Estates represented by Savills (Mr Geraint Jones)
The representations set out our support for the recognition of Buckingham as a 'strategic settlement' (Policy S3), the Council's approach to re-use of previously developed land (Policy S7), and confirm the flexibility in terms of appropriate uses within town centres (Policy D6). In addition, the representations confirm our broad support for allocation BUC040 in Buckingham, but with the caveat that greater clarity is required regarding the distribution of uses.
Section 4: Proposed allocation BUC040 - Market Hill and West Street frontage and land to rear;
OBJECT Catesby Estates Limited represented by Barton Willmore (Alastair Bird)
As such, it is considered that the proposed allocations at Buckingham are not 'justified' as required by
paragraph 182 of the NPPF as AVDC have not suitably considered the reasonable alternatives. This
assessment should include a review of the Site as an extension to Buckingham, rather than Maids
Moreton. Furthermore, it is unclear as to how the strategy could be regarded as 'effective' given that
an application for up to 130 dwellings at Site BUC043 has been dismissed by the Secretary of State.
Moreover, insufficient supporting evidence has been provided to demonstrate that Site BUC051 is
OBJECT NHS (Helen Delaitre)
The only GP service that covers this population is The Swan Practice. The Swan Practice has a list size of 30,000 patients and occupies 3 premises in Buckingham town centre and one in Steeple Claydon. The practice is keen to relocate and consolidate its existing premises (apart from Steeple Claydon) onto a new purpose-built development at Lace Hill. The CCG is in the early stages of working with the practice but we would anticipate the need for a substantial contribution from developers should plans go ahead regarding the proposed developments in the VALP.
