Hartest - Cross Green
BMSDC Joint Local Plan Preferred Options (interactive)
Representation ID: 18486
Respondent: Hartest Parish Council
Should not be considered a separate Hamlet with its own boundary. Would open up development land that runs counter to the ambitions of the Neighbourhood Plan. Existing and proposed policies can control development in and around the groups of houses without settlement boundaries being shown. If CS11 no longer forms part of the plan, then there will be no justification for developing sites adjacent to the Built Up Area Boundary, and the inclusion of Cross Green as a hamlet becomes less of an issue for the NP group. The draft Neighbourhood Plan shows Cross Green as one of the area that might be able to accommodate very small scale development, there could be a logic to identifying the group as a hamlet.
