OBJECT Nash Parish Council (Mr John Hamilton)
It is accepted that to be fair to all that there will be an increase in sites for the Gypsy and Traveller
population and the VALP sets out policy D10 with rules for how and where they should be sited. As
already pointed out it does not offer any policy for mobile home parks for 365 day occupation.
OBJECT The Environment Agency (Michelle Kidd)
From this policy we are assuming that none of the site allocations for gypsy and travellers sites are within Flood Zones 2 or 3. We have seen no sequential test for the
gypsy and travellers sites. Unfortunately we have not been unable check the constraints for the gypsy and travellers site allocations listed in 'Table 4: Allocations to meet the
needs for gypsy and travellers', as we could find no grid references supplied for these sites.
OBJECT Historic England (Mr Martin Small)
hat criterion d. sets the bar too low as regards the historic environment - should only be acceptable where there is no adverse impact at all on the historic environment, in order to provide protection for heritage assets in accordance with the National Planning Policy Framework 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 of the Framework. We therefore consider that the Plan fails to conform with the Framework in this respect and is therefore not sound.
OBJECT Mrs Susan White
'Oaksview Park' lies within Boarstall parish in open countryside in an unsustainable location far from transport and amenities. This field was illegally occupied by the travellers. An Inspector's Report granted temporary planning permission solely to the named occupiers at that time and only because AVDC could not offer a permanent alternative. Temporary permission has only ever been granted whilst an alternative is sought. This has lapsed. Two recent applications to gain planning permission not only to remain as 13 pitches but to increase the number to 19 have been refused. The VALP disregards AVDC's own Development Control Committee.
OBJECT Ms Patience Skillings
Would have liked to see something about lighting schemes, as this can have an adverse effect on a rural location.
Planning officer note: originally supported but the above change was suggested therefore amended to object in order to be considered by Planning Inspector.
