Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Q56

Representation ID: 13192

COMMENT Taylor Wimpey represented by Boyer Planning (Mr. James Bailey)

Representation ID: 12975

SUPPORT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

The land from the Holliday Inn down through Chantry Vale, Sproughton and into the Gipping valley is only found in one other place in Suffolk - Dedham Vale AONB.
Being on the edge of Ipswich it is an ideal landscape for Recreational / Nature walks etc. which would divert footfall away as required from the SSSI sites that need protection....
The Gipping Valley and the landscape leading into it... might benefit from being a Landscape Project Area to ensure the best of the landscape within walking distance of Ipswich is protected for future generations as Ipswich expands around it.

Representation ID: 12935

COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)

Summary:

In order to demonstrate a robust process these designations and their evidence base could be reviewed as an addition to the Heritage Settlement and Landscape Sensitivity Assessment that is underway. This is the appropriate scale at which these landscape issues can be dealt with. In the absence of a robust evidence base it may unfortunately be necessary to retain and review these designations as an interim measure.

Representation ID: 12679

COMMENT Mr Bryan Fawcett

Summary:

In relation to landscape types Chantry Vale has the same mix of landscape designation as Dedham Vale AONB. It is the only other place in Suffolk with the same combination of landscape type designations, totally justifying its local SLA designation. Being on the edge of Ipswich it is an ideal landscape for Recreational / Nature which would naturally link up with Chantry Park, potential footbridges linking to the Gipping Valley footpath and divert footfall away from the SSSI sites that need protection. A Landscape Project Area is mentioned, this appears to be the designation for the landscape overlooking the River Stour as an extension of the Dedham Vale, so a bit like the Gipping valley/Sproughton as it extends from Chantry Vale. Accordingly, this designation could be appropriate for Sproughton and the River Valley.

Representation ID: 12607

COMMENT Mr Alastair Powell

Summary:

* We even have a famour artist with a painting of Red House at the V&A meuseum? Chantry Vale and th Gipping Valley is so much like Dedham Vale that possibly a landscape Project area designation should be approptiate to ensure any development in the area conforms to a plan to preserve the important aspect of the landscape.

'local designation' then this would be contrary to the 'preference' at p63.

Representation ID: 11722

COMMENT Haughley Park Consortium represented by Boyer Planning (Mr. James Bailey)

Summary:

We consider that the Councils possess sufficient policies and measures to protect the non-designated landscape. It is considered that proposed development should be determined on a case by case basis and consideration should be given to impact on any landscape project area during the application process and consultation process. We do not consider that the Councils should include a restrictive policy in respect of this in their emerging Local Plan.

Where is there a definition of a landscape project area? If a Neighbourhood Plan identifies an area for a landscape project, does that mean the area is included in 'current planning policy'?

More details about Rep ID: 9869

Representation ID: 9750

SUPPORT Miss R P Baillon

Summary:

Yes. This is most important in order to maintain the character of the landscape and historic towns and villages. Environmental habitats need to be protected so that the biodiversity of the region does not become depleted.

The diverse landscape of the area needs to be maintained and cherished. The non-designated areas which have a rich environment need to be protected. Possibly a reappraisal of non-designated areas needs to be carried out.

COMMENT Bacton Parish Council (mrs tina newell)

Summary:

Open spaces within a development need to be provided in such a way that historic views of existing heritage assets are preserved and there is still a feeling of being in a rural and not an urban area. Roadside verges trees and hedges contribute to the rural landscape.

COMMENT Marek Pawlewski

Summary:

Yes definitely. For example, the Suffolk Coasts and Heaths AONB-Management-Plan-20132018 states: "Although AONB policies in national and local policy documents refer specifically to the statutory designated area, some adjacent areas share many similar landscape features. The Partnership has been managing these areas of the Shotley peninsula and the south side of the Orwell Estuary in the same way as the AONB proper, to protect and enhance their landscape and heritage."
