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

Representation:

This site is not in the emerging Neighbourhood Plan. Heath Road simply cannot take any more traffic. It is an HGV route despite the fact that lorries must mount the pavement to let cars pass.

Change suggested by respondent:

Remove it or do something about Heath Road. Experience with road schemes associated with the Green Road development makes the village fearful of empty promises.

Representation:

Most of the traffic generated by this site would have to pass by the school and Health Centre along the already congested Heath Road which is an HGV route. The site is beyond normal walking distance to the village centre and residents would generally use their cars to access local shops and services. The site is unsustainable.

Change suggested by respondent:

Site LA097 should be removed from the plan.

Respondent: Anglian Water

In our previous comments we had asked the allocation policies identify existing water supply and water recycling infrastructure where this is located on site to ensure that we can operate and maintain this infrastructure.

We welcome the inclusion of reference to the existing water mains located on site being considered as part of the site layout for this residential allocation site.

Paragraph 16 of the NPPF requires Plans to be prepared with the objective of contributing to sustainable development, and shaped by early, proportionate and effective engagement between plan makers and infrastructure providers.
Suffolk Constabulary identified the need for additional police facilities provision to mitigate the impact of planned housing & population growth on its baseline Safer Neighbourhood Team resources which are at capacity, & to provide for an appropriate level of community safety, cohesion & policing.
Recognition of the need for additional developer funded police facilities was therefore sought at the Regulation 18 stage of the Plan in September 2019.

Change suggested by respondent:

For the reasons outlined in response to Section 5 above, & in order to fully achieve sustainable development by providing for an appropriate level of community safety, cohesion & policing, the following modification to the Plan is required;
Policy: LA097 – Land West of Heath Road, Woolpit
Insert a new paragraph (below healthcare provision) as follows:
“IX. Contributions, to the satisfaction of the LPA, towards police facilities provision.”

Respondent: Suffolk County Council

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation:

At regulation 18 consultation stage, SCC highlighted that a number of site allocation policies need to contain the following wording, requiring a Flood Risk Assessment (FRA). The recommended amendment would make these policies effective in addressing flood risks and therefore sound.

Change suggested by respondent:

A flood risk assessment should be carried out to identify suitable mitigation and a deliverable strategy for the disposal of surface water. Where possible development should avoid proportions of the site with predicted or historic flooding.

Representation ID: 22215

Received: 24/12/2020

Respondent: Suffolk County Council

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation:

In its regulation 18 consultation response, SCC made several recommendations regarding site specific policies to inform developers and decision makers. The majority of these recommendations have been included in the plan, however some appear to have been missed. In order to make these policies effective the missed recommendations should be included in site specific policies. SCC considers that the proposed modifications should be incorporated into the plan for it to be sound.

Change suggested by respondent:

Policy should require a transport assessment to determine existing and projected capacity and any mitigation required. It should be noted in the IDP that this site will likely require widening of the carriageway.
