Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - D-HAL003 RAF Halton

Representation ID: 2708

OBJECT Mrs M Flower

Summary:

I believe that the site has been allocated prematurely, as very little consultation or assessment of its sustainability for development has been undertaken prior to its inclusion. As the Council plans to conduct a Local Plan Review in the near future, it is unnecessary to allocate the site straight away.

I would therefore urge you to remove it from the VALP until more details abut how the development would be supported, and clear plans for its delivery, are made public. This would allow local residents to give informed opinions on its sustainability for such as large number of houses.

OBJECT FCC Environment represented by Sirius Yorkshire (Joanna Berlyn)

Summary:

Part of the Council's strategic growth allocations relate to an additional 1000 homes on the RAF Halton site (ref HAL003). There is significant uncertainty and a lack of evidence that the site is a deliverable allocation within a realistic timescale, indeed the site was deemed as 'unsuitable' within the HELAA for both suitability and achievability. It is clear that there are a number of uncertainties and variables regarding the site. Therefore, it is considered that this allocation is not justified within the timeframe of the VALP.

OBJECT Natural England (Ms Kirsty Macpherson)

Summary:

The RAF Halton site is adjacent to
Ancient woodland, Priority Habitat -

people to the site could result in
recreational impacts.

OBJECT Mr Damian Campbell

Summary:

Surely the impact of development of Halton on the surrounding road network needs to be carefully assessed as part of the plan using a valid traffic model. The current plan is wholly inadequate in this regard. This again raises the questions on the preparation of VALP.

SUPPORT Wendover Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group (Mr Jonathan Clover)

Summary:

As identified before this site is immediately adjacent the Parish boundary and its
development will have major impact on Wendover itself. Proposals at RAF Halton
should respect the site specific requirements and criteria listed under reference DHAL003.
There should be the opportunity for the WNP to contribute to the
development and any other necessary criteria to guide the development at the site.

OBJECT Wendover Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group (Mr Jonathan Clover)

Summary:

RAF Halton: there is insufficient detail on either the numbers
of homes (and the lack of definition is an issue), or their types and tenure and
size. The public support a variety of types of affordable homes to meet local
needs but have still to be consulted on the mix of provision.
 The public have made it clear that, whilst they support affordable housing of
all types, in appropriate locations within the Town, and if necessary at RAF
Halton, they have asked that appropriate and sufficient infrastructure is
provided at RAF Halton

OBJECT The Environment Agency (Michelle Kidd)

Summary:

HAL003 - RAF Halton
This site is on the chalk principal aquifer, as such is fairly sensitive with respect to
controlled waters. The past land uses may have resulted in contamination being
present. This may have implications for development in terms of carrying out
investigations and if required, remediation. We expect the groundwater aquifers to be
protected from pollution.

We consider that a robust assessment of the Green Belt at RAF Halton should be undertaken, including the impact of the proposed development of the openness of the Green Belt, before it can be relied upon as a strategic allocation.

There is no evidence provided with PSVALP to demonstrate that RAF Halton is available or deliverable at the time predicted

OBJECT DIO represented by Jones Lang LaSalle (Mr Tim Byrne)

Summary:

The entirety of the RAF Halton site should be included within the Site Allocation. The current Policy Map excludes Halton House its grounds and a number of open recreation areas, areas of woodland and the airfield and associated buildings as they are located within the Green Belt. JLL consider that is a flawed approach as it will fragment the historic estate which is counter to accepted heritage best practice.

Summary:

The effect on the surrounding road system as a result of building 1,000 houses will be severe.

OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)

Summary:

The retention of the listed structures and scheduled long barrow, the retention/provision of an appropriate setting and the protection of that setting from the redevelopment of the rest of the site should be site-specific requirement in Policy D-HAL003 in order to provide protection for these designated and any non-designated assets in accordance with the NPPF and 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 Without those requirements, we consider that Policy D-HAL003 does not provide adequate protection to heritage assets

OBJECT CEG represented by Nexus Planning Ltd (Mr Steven Doel)

OBJECT Crest Strategic Projects represented by Savills Southampton (Mr Jon Gateley)

Summary:

For all of the above reasons, the VALP's approach towards RAF Halton is neither justified nor consistent with national planning policy, and the specific proposal for residential-led development must therefore be removed from the VALP. In lieu of this, an interim policy should be included to allow for, and positively facilitate, the future redevelopment of the site via a full Local Plan Review including Green Belt review.

OBJECT mR. Cameron Sinclair

Summary:

The plan doesn't adequately address the potential impact of the RAF Halton site becoming available for even more houses and how that will also affect the transport infrastructure, schools and medical facilities. I am particularly concerned about air quality and noise pollution on the Aylesbury Road (Ref: 9.38).

OBJECT Persimmon Homes Ltd., and CALA homes Ltd represented by Turley Associates (Mr Christopher Roberts)

Summary:

it
would appear though that latter phases of development need be enabled by the release
of Green Belt land. This could only occur should the Council be able to demonstrate that
there are exceptional circumstances to justify such a release. Accordingly, whilst the
disposal of RAF Halton has the potential to allow for a redevelopment to residential use,
the scale of that redevelopment cannot be certain, with latter phases of development
being contingent on future Green Belt release.

OBJECT Richborough Estates represented by RPS Planning & Development (Mr Cameron Austin-Fell)

Summary:

Notwithstanding suitability considerations identified by the Council, including reference to a number of identified designations, RPS considers that the Council is being overly optimistic over the delivery of the proposed allocation which would require all barriers to planning overcome and sustained delivery across the plan period from 2022 onwards.

Of additional concern, RPS is also aware that the assurances from the Defence Infrastructure Organisation (DIO) remain fragile for the purposes of plan making.

RPS therefore recommends that the proposed allocation at RAF Halton remains as part of the Plan, but an additional aspiration.

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.

OBJECT Waldridge Garden Village Consortium represented by Pegasus Group (on behalf of Jeremy Elgin) (Mr Neil Tiley)

Summary:

RAF Halton is both uncertain and is unsustainable according to the Sustainability Appraisal. As such, this site should not be proposed for allocation based on the available evidence. However, even if it is, sufficient contingency should be included in the VALP or through an early review to address the shortfall which may arise from the non-delivery of this site.

The water network capacity in this area is unlikely to be able to support the demand from this development. Strategic water supply infrastructure upgrades are likely to be required to ensure sufficient capacity is brought forward. The wastewater network capacity in this area is unlikely to be able to support the demand from the development.

OBJECT Sir/ Madam

Summary:


No consultation was undertaken on the site and it was not assessed in the same way as other sites which have been proposed. For that reason local people haven't been able to express their view on this very significant allocation.

As a result no consideration has been given to the impact on local roads, particularly the likelihood that development at RAF Halton will lead to rat running through local villages. The infrastructure requirements of this development have therefore not been considered.

Representation ID: 1278

OBJECT Sir/ Madam

Summary:

Development of this site will have a severe impact on traffic in the local area, an promote rat-running through the villages of Halton and Wendover. I cannot see any evidence that the Council has considered this, or planned for infrastructure to reduce the impact, before rushing to include the site in the Plan.

More details about Rep ID: 1278

Representation ID: 1277

OBJECT S Concenty

Summary:

allocation of the site is unjustified, as brownfield sites appear to have been removed from the Plan to allow for its inclusion. This is especially concerning due to the site's location in the Green Belt, which is supported to be protected from development by national policy.
Furthermore, RAF Halton is also close to several areas of particular local interst, such as the Chilterns AONB and several Listed Buildings. These valuable and historic local sites should protect, and I can see no evidence that these constraints have even been considered in relation to the proposed development of 1,000 houses.

OBJECT Sir/ Madam

Summary:

I am writing in opposition of application number HAL003. Not only is the site in the Green Belt (despite over 90% of the district not being in the Green Belt) but there are questions over the potential of RAF Halton, including the extent of developable land, questioning how much development could actually be achieved here?

Furthermore the site in the undeliverable until after 2022, what use will this be to our current housing crisis?

I believe the Council has not given proper consideration to the site's location in the Green Belt, which I believe should be protected from development under almost all circumstances. As 90% of the District is not in the Green Belt, the Council should reconsider whether there are other suitable sites which could replace this one.

I do not believe that AVDC can have possibly explored all alternative sites, and if its is the case, the Plan in its current form should be found unsound.
Additionally, I can see no evidence that the council has undertaken a proper Green Belt assessment of the site which raises serious questions regarding the justification

I believe it is completely unjustified to allocate a Green Belt site for such a large number of homes, especially in close proximity to the Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There must be more suitable sites elsewhere in Aylesbury Vale which could provide this housing.

Summary:

We consider that the RAF Halton site should remain within the Green Belt in the long term and that any development should not reduce the openness of the Green Belt. The plan should remove the reference to removing the site from the Green Belt in the future.

Summary:

Residential development at this scale in this location is likely to cause adverse impact to SSSIs, Local Wildlife Sites and ancient woodland (an irreplaceable habitat), that are either nearby, adjacent or within the site boundary, contrary to NPPF paragraphs 117 and 118.

We would question whether the site is appropriate to be allocated for residential development. If the use of the site for residential development is proceeded with then the number of houses should be reduced considerably and at least 50% of the space allocated for the creation of priority habitats to reduce impact.

OBJECT Mr and Mrs Bill and Linda Page

Summary:

I am writing regarding the allocation of RAF Halton in the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan.
Given the current housing crisis, I do not believe it is acceptable to allocate a site that will be unavailable for development until 2022. While RAF Halton clearly represents an opportunity for development, there must be other locations where new housing could be built sooner.
I therefore think that development of the site should be properly considered in liaison with the local community during the upcoming Local Plan Review, and a more deliverable site allocated in its place in the VALP.

OBJECT Mr Ivan Welbourne

Summary:

Aside from the issue of allocating a Green Belt site for so many houses, I am particularly concerned that development on this scale will have a substantial impact on traffic in my local area. There does not appear to be a clear strategy to deal with all the additional car trips through local villages, or to provide or improve infrastructure to reduce congestion.

Until such information can be provided to local residents, I do not believe the allocation should remain in place.

OBJECT Mark Cox

Summary:

The site is located in the Green Belt which is supposed to be protected from development. National planning policy states that all other sites should be considered for housing first, and as 90% of the District is not in the Green Belt, I do not believe that the Council can have done this at all.
Development of RAF Halton will also harm the setting of the nearby AONB and historic Listed Buildings, which add so much to the character of our area.
This site is therefore unsustainable for development, and I would urge the Council to reconsider its allocation.

In addition to the harm this could do to the local ecology and landscape, including on the Chiltern Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Wendover Woods wildlife site, it would also cause significant harm to the local heritage. There are several listed buildings and monuments on the site. But I have seen no evidence that this has been properly considered before rushing to allocate the site for 1,000 houses.

As well as being on the Green Belt, which the Council is supposed to project, the site is close to the areas of significant ecology and heritage value, such as Halton House and the Chilterns AOB.

Summary:

The site is in the Green Belt, we have plenty of brownfield sites and I don't believe the council have done the appropriate assessments which hoes against the national planning policy (which states that brownfield sites should be considered before anything in the Green Belt).
The decision to allocate for housing is premature as insufficient consultation and assessment have been carried out. Andd it is completely unnecessary to allocate the site immediately as there will be an immediate Local Plan review once the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan is adopted.

Summary:

While there is a need for new homes in Aylesbury Vale, RAF Halton is the wrong place to put them.
RAF Halton is in the Green Belt, and both national policy and common sense says we should exhaust other options before deciding to build on the Green Belt. This is even more the case for a sensitive site like RAF Halton, which has so much history and local wildlife.
Adding RAF Halton to the plan is unnecessary and the Council should think again about how to meet our housing need.

3. Geography - Unsound as plan has fudged the location of RAF Halton as being in Wendover, therefore assumes it is within walking distance and infrastructure is there. Usurping the role of the Boundary Commission.
4. Green Belt - unsound. There is no compelling case/exceptional case for lifting the green belt in Halton. The VALP contradicts itself

I am concerned that any agreement to the current proposals will create a precedent for further large scale development of an unquantified nature. Such an open-ended commitment is not acceptable.

(Officer note: element changed from 4.133 to D-HAL003 RAF Halton)

OBJECT Mr John Currell

Summary:

I support this proposal, but must object to the lack of detail.
To build houses at here rather than in Wendover is good.
Proper reference must be made to all the necessary infrastructure requirements and the potential adverse impact on facilities in Wendover.

OBJECT Wendover Society (Mr John Mayhead)

Summary:

The Society recognises the opportunities provided by the latest version of the plan to meet the housing demand whilst mitigating the effect on Wendover itself.
We applaud the withdrawal of plans to take areas out of the Green Belt
We welcome recognition that there are no suitable large-scale development sites in Wendover.
We have a serious concern over lack of detail in plan, particularly about the infrastructure implications and the consequent effect of the 1000 new homes upon Wendover itself.
The Society looks to positively engage with AVDC / DIO / Bucks CC to progress the plan.

SUPPORT Mr David Saunders

Summary:

I wish to support the allocation for redevelopment of the site at RAF Halton, in preference to a site close to Milton Keynes, on grounds of national policy. Details of this argument are given in the attached pdf file.
