Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Option HG1

Representation ID: 11776

SUPPORT Councillor Frank Lawrenson

Summary:

With regard to hamlets, I prefer Option HG1 as Option HG2 does not provide sufficient protection. It refers to causing "undue harm" and I would suggest that this needs to be strengthened. Developments should be appropriate, in character and not cause harm to the character and appearance of the cluster.

OBJECT Mr Ken Seager

Summary:

The present policies are too restrictive on small and individual development, in that what appears to be perfectly acceptable infills and small extensions to village boarders which complement their character without oppressive change have been blocked by planning policies when large estate developments that are oppressive, change the character and destroy the individuality of local communities have been supported.

OBJECT Mrs Jessica Fleming

Summary:

Hamlets can benefit from suitably scaled new development and suffer when this is not permitted

OBJECT Redlingfield parish meeting (Ms Janet Norman-Philips)

Summary:

We totally object to this approach.
We utterly disagree with the policy of treating hamlets as open countryside. It is a policy that sound the death knell for the majority of villages and is ridiculous when you consider that the majority of villages, such as ours, have existed and been allowed to thrive for over a thousand years.

Representation ID: 8199

COMMENT Ms Helen Davies

Summary:

Some limited growth would appear appropriate, even desirable where grown up children want new housing close to their families in their own communities.
There is a reasonable argument for proportional development to match proportionate need, and a proportionate responsibility for expanding families housing needs.

SUPPORT Mx Miles Row

Summary:

New dwellings need to be where there is option of footpaths, it is safe to cycle and so people who do not drive can get to ammenities safely. It also reduces impact on climate change if not every journey has to be made by car. Hamlets in vast majority of cases do not provide these.

SUPPORT Mickfield Parish Council (Mike Heyhoe)

Given the small size of Mickfield it is considered that continuation of the current policy of infill development is the only viable option.

Representation ID: 6475

SUPPORT Mr Robin Coates

Summary:

Option HG2 represents the continually creep of enlarging small existing developments, the longer term outcome of this approach is the creation of larger and larger settlements. The current approach maintains the selected quality and lifestyle selected by those residents living their.

COMMENT Freston Parish Council (Ms Elizabeth Aldous)

Summary:

continuation of the current approach which would classify hamlets as open countryside in the settlement hierarchy

Representation ID: 6243

SUPPORT Mr Colin Johnston

Summary:

Infilling is tokenistic. It will do hardly anything to solve the house building issue but pose possible environmental damage to the character of, what are, countryside areas. The idea that we should trash the countryside just because more tarmac is going down in the settlements with services is risible.

OBJECT Mrs Louise Baldry

Summary:

The present policies appear to be too restrictive on small and individual developments. It appears that perfectly acceptable infill projects and small extensions to village borders which complement their character without oppressive change have been blocked by planning policies. Whereas large estate developments that are oppressive, change the character of adjacent communities and destroy the individuality of local communities, have been supported

Representation ID: 1886

OBJECT Mr. A. Breen

Summary:

There should be no restriction to the development even in the smallest of communities if other restrictions such as highways can be satisfied. There is a need to re-balance the social profile of all communities and to avoid the gentrification of rural areas.

Summary:

Unlikely that local infrastructure could support any development

Representation ID: 6

SUPPORT Prof George Constantinides

Summary:

I strongly support HG1. It is imperative that hamlets retain their unique identity - growth can be restricted to hinterland villages and larger conurbations except in proven exceptional need.
