Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Q69

Representation ID: 13202

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

Summary:

We believe that the strategy of the Plan should be addressing the "needs" of the Districts.

At present, this housing need should look to provide over and above the number of dwellings required for the population of both Babergh and Mid Suffolk.

We also consider that the Plan's strategy should also include the unmet housing need of neighbouring authorities, in order to address deprivation across the entire HMA.

Representation ID: 12995

COMMENT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

The strategy of the Plan should be flexible enough to address additional social issues which will arise during the lifetime of the document; for example the needs of an increasing elderly population.

Financial Depravation is identified as an issue in rural areas due to lack of affordable housing. A push for good value affordable and starter homes in rural areas needs to be a priority.

OBJECT Stowupland Parish Council (Claire Pizzey)

Summary:

This question seems to have appeared from nowhere; no suggestion of how the strategy could address deprivation but the answer has to be 'yes, the strategy should address deprivation' but we need to see draft policies in order to make comment.

Representation ID: 9577

COMMENT Cllr John Hinton

Summary:

Considering the provision of open space, sports and pool/ leisure in areas of apparent "deprivation", it appears as a simplistic solution that there is sufficient - it just requires, where there is apparently a deprived population, some incentive for them to use the facilities!

Representation ID: 3542

COMMENT Fressingfield Parish Council (Mr Alexander Day)

Summary:

It is the view of the Parish Council that addressing the problem of deprivation should be embedded in every aspect of the local plan. Deprivation is pernicious and impacts on health, education, crime and community well being.The underlying approach to improving deprivation should be driven by the facts on p69 (Hidden Needs Report 2016) and so a greater emphasis should be placed on moving those from areas of deprivation towards urban rather than rural areas.Ease of transport links, both private and public and accessibility to greater employment opportunities must be considered alongside planning to eradicate deprivation in our communities.

COMMENT Diss & District Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group (Ms Deborah Sarson)

Summary:

The DDNPSG is conscious that there are areas of deprivation within the NP Area but not specifically within the part in Mid Suffolk. It is currently minded to take the approach that increasing education, training and skills to match them with a growing economic base thereby offering more employment, coupled with creating opportunities to access suitable housing, will provide the best means of lifting individuals out of deprivation.

SUPPORT Mr. A. Breen

Summary:

Deprivation though not an especially significant factor in Babergh and Mid Suffolk can be easily hidden. The gentrification of rural areas could divorce large elements of the population from the challenging realities faced by a minority. The integration of a range of house types should help but only if all communities shared in the objective of tackling deprivation and not just send the needy elsewhere.
