Representation 10058 on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) by Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - HOUSING, Housing Requirement, Q7
Representation: We do not have a view on the exact figure, but the impact on the
historic environment will be important.

The capacity for the area to accommodate new housing development whilst
maintaining its historic environment should be a key consideration, so that the quality and character of neighbourhoods, towns and villages is conserved. Integrating consideration of the historic environment into plan making alongside other considerations is a key principle of sustainable development. Where less successful neighbourhoods are proposed for redevelopment opportunities for enhancement should be a priority. Allocations should be considered in the most sustainable locations and should get the right densities and character appropriate to the area. This will require a careful and detailed analysis - the historic environment is a critical factor.
