Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Q70

Representation ID: 12996

COMMENT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

These should be further developed in the light of any issues that arise or change as we move through the Plan period. For example, it is impossible to predict the approach necessary to deal with any BREXIT issues and therefore the Plan needs to be flexible enough to mitigate these.

Representation ID: 12952

COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)

Summary:

Data from Public Health England shows that Babergh performs better than or similar to the rest of England and the region in overarching indicators of health, wider determinants of health, premature mortality and deprivation.
Mid Suffolk also performs well in these areas, however there is a significantly larger gap in the unemployment rate between those with a long-term health condition and the overall employment rate is significantly worse compared to England (44.0 pp vs 29.6pp). Additionally the rate of diagnosis for dementia in Mid Suffolk is significantly lower than in the English Average, with an estimated 40% of people aged 65 and over with dementia lacking a formal diagnosis.
There are inequalities within the districts and it is welcome that the Plan identifies these.

Representation ID: 3721

SUPPORT Mr Neil Lister

Summary:

Community led approaches addressing:
a. 'Material' poverty by reducing costs, (e.g. housing, fuel), providing low cost credit, creating employment.
b. 'non-material' aspects of poverty by enhancing health/well-being, improving housing quality, physical environment, increasing social participation.

Community-led activities more commonly deliver poverty-related outcomes around 'pockets'/'prospects' than 'prevention'. They achieve a range of valuable outcomes but sometimes only for relatively small numbers and alone cannot be expected to tackle area-wide disadvantage. More substantial, targeted, sustained investment for community-led activities in low income neighbourhoods could increase the scale. Appropriate levels of start-up funding and on-going subsidy may be necessary.
