Representations on VALP Proposed Submission - D5 Provision of employment land
OBJECT SEGRO Plc represented by Turley Associates (Mr Tim Burden)
We note that despite AVDC being the highest tier settlement, reference is only made at paragraph 4.10 of the Plan to the Enterprise Zones at Silverstone, Westcot and Arla/ Woodlands. There is the potential for employment provision to come forward through a number of the strategic sites around Aylesbury contained within the Local Plan. We therefore consider that there are questions over the appropriateness of these sites for employment alongside timescales for their delivery. We raise particular concerns over the sites identified which have been long term allocations and where employment development has yet to come forward.
OBJECT Wendover Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group (Mr Jonathan Clover)
The views of the public on live-work developments have yet to be canvassed in the
WNP process but this is an area where even minor business/work activity can impact
on neighbours given the likely noise and parking needs generated by such
developments in particular where housing densities are high and off road parking is
OBJECT Crest Strategic Projects represented by Savills Southampton (Mr Jon Gateley)
Failure to protect existing employment sites is also not consistent with NPPF objectives to promote the 'economic' dimension of sustainability, and in combination with the limited employment land allocations that are included in the VALP, this risks further reinforcing the relatively high out-commuting levels from Aylesbury Vale.
SUPPORT Mr. C Morris and Mr. P Cowley represented by CC Town Planning (Mr Ross Middleton)
Policy D5 has been positively prepared and is robustly justified in the evidence base.
OBJECT Lands Improvement Holdings (LIH) represented by Savills Oxford (Reece Lemon)
Policy D5 supports expansion of existing employment premises. However there could be instances where
expansion of existing employment areas is required to cater for demand, for example at Haddenham Business
Park. The policy should be revised to include reference to such development
OBJECT Corbally (Finmere) Group and Mrs Vanessa Tait represented by WYG (Sarah Butterfield)
Draft Policy D5 is objected to on the basis that it is not consistent with national planning
policy and has not been positively prepared. This is because it fails to include any
reference to the need to make effective use of land through the redevelopment of
previously developed land and does not appear to identify sufficient land to meet likely
requirements for employment development.
OBJECT Crevichon Properties Ltd represented by Delta Planning (Maria Sheridan)
Policy D5 should be amended to include reference to the NPPF requirement that employment allocations should be kept under regular review and sites removed where a site is no longer needed or is no longer suitable for protection for employment use.
