BMSDC Joint Local Plan - Pre-Submission Reg19 (interactive) 2020

Representation ID: 20986

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation:

The JLP is not justified, effective or consistent with national policy.

In representations made at the Preferred Options stage, EESL, made it clear that the ‘Land East of Eastern Way’ was capable of providing land to deliver new primary education infrastructure in conjunction with a residential development.

The ‘Land East of Eastern Way’ offers a sustainable solution to delivering the primary education infrastructure required to support the housing growth identified in the JLP. In addition, it will also future proof the ability of the village to support and benefit from housing growth beyond the level
currently planned for in the JLP.

Change suggested by respondent:

The ‘Land East of Eastern Way’ should be allocated for residential development and land for a primary school through the JLP. The housing need figures in Policy SP01 do not align with the Council’s own latest assessment of housing need in the SHMA (2019). Based on the SHMA figures the JLP will deliver a shortfall of in excess of 1,000 dwellings over the plan period. The ‘Land East of
Eastern Way’ will assist in addressing part of this shortfall in a sustainable way which would also be
compliant with the objectives of the JLP. This shortfall should also be considered in the context of
the wider rising needs of the districts evidenced by the Government’s August 2020 consultation on
a revised standard method. This further demonstrates the need for flexibility in the JLP’s approach
to allocating growth to sustainable settlements such as Elmswell.
The allocation of the site would see amendments to the housing figures for Elmswell in Table 04
associated with Policy SP04, and a new allocation policy prepared for ‘Land east of Eastern Way,
Elmswell’ to deliver 170 dwellings and land for a primary school (3ha of land). ESSL are happy to
engage with the Council on the drafting of a new policy.
If the Council prepare and publish evidence and still choose to discount the ‘Land East of Eastern
Way’ the number of dwellings afforded to Elmswell by Table 04 should be increased by 170
dwellings to guide the future Neighbourhood Plan process and to ensure that there is a sustainable
strategy to increase primary education capacity in the village.
The policy amendments outlined above would then lead to an updated IDP document to reflect the
new sustainable and deliverable strategy to bring forward primary education infrastructure in
Elmswell.

BMSDC Joint Local Plan - Pre-Submission Reg19 (interactive) 2020

Representation ID: 21539

Representation:

The plan is not justified. DC/20/01677 was approved for 65 dwellings on land west of Former Bacon Factory. The site is not identified on the Place Map and is shown outside the settlement boundary within open countryside. The commitment to development on this site is clearly a relevant consideration in terms of demonstrating that the plan is able to meet the strategic requirement for housing, it is also important that, once adopted, the plan is in all respects as up to date as it can reasonable be so that it can be properly understood.

Change suggested by respondent:

A copy of the Place Map for Elmswell is appended to this representation on which the housing commitment referred to at '5' is identified.
For the reasons explained, this site should be shown on the Place Map as a residential allocation and the settlement boundary should be amended to include the site within the settlement. Assuming that this is done, the plan will better reflect the evidence base and this issue with its soundess will be appropriately addressed.
