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

Representation ID: 13001

OBJECT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

This approach is not appropriate. Planning policy should not be based on artificial constructs, which over emphasize the role of larger settlements. Planning policy should ensure a proportional allocation of housing and employment land across the Districts in support of the characteristics and needs of existing communities.

COMMENT Mr Peter Powell

Summary:

Using single functional clusters is a simplistic approach; it doesn't recognize the complexity of relationships between communities and, because it is based on past data, it also fails to take account of changing attitudes and behaviours.

OBJECT Ms Helen Davies

Summary:

Definition of functional cluster too simplistic. Doesn't take account of multiple interactions of different communities. Sproughton is not simply focussed on Ipswich.

Settlement boundaries should be updated re recent developments NOT proposed development as these may not happen.

Amount of development proposed for Sproughton is disproportionate - 55.11% of all development proposed. It would increase the size of Sproughton by 397% and mean that Sproughton merges with Bramford & Ipswich.

Planning policy should ensure a proportional allocation of housing &employment land across BDC in support of the characteristics and needs of existing communities. This would be perceived as fairer

OBJECT Mrs Louise Baldry

Summary:

Functional clusters is a way of looking at the existing spatial geography based on how communities interconnect. The functional clusters then inform the settlement hierarchy. Classification for these purposes is relevant to determining the approach to planning.
