Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Option ECON1

Representation ID: 11787

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Heather & Michael Earey

Summary:

*A fundamental oversight is that the effects of Brexit has not been considered, either in trade, employment or migration calculations.
*JLP 20 year projections based on historic data, all pre Brexit Vote, and the bulk of growth came from migration, so are likely to be very over optimistic.
*Council finances dependent on growth but projections appear optimistic. The finances of every council depend on attracting growth so this is nationally competitive and yet there is no policy to achieve that, just wishful thinking. The Sugar Beet Factory site alone is already more land than the projected requirement for employment land with a total oversupply of 187 hectares (identified need is 12.3 hectares).

Representation ID: 11207

SUPPORT Wetheringsett cum Brockford Parish Council (Lynne Cockerton)

Summary:

As set out in the main consultation document, based on the forecast jobs growth the net employment land requirements for 2014-2036 are forecasing 9.4 hectares in Mid-Suffolk. As of 1st April 2015 there were some 113.41 hectares of employment land available in MidSuffolk, including 51.3 hectares at Eye Airfield. We therefore support ECON 1 - To allocate the minimum amount of employment land to accommodate the jobs growth forecast by the East of England Forecasting Model

Representation ID: 8447

SUPPORT Mr Robin Coates

Summary:

Accurately forecasting requirements is notoriously difficult, more land can always be added with additional submissions. Over allocation in a very uncertain environment is undesirable and could lock up land, with associated impact on local property prices.

Representation ID: 8307

SUPPORT Mr Mark Allen

Summary:

The land identified by the Council in this LDP covers more than 100 hectares in Mid-Suffolk, despite the requirements being assessed as only 9 hectares. There is simply no need to allocate more than the minimum amount of employment land for non-existent demand.

Representation ID: 8182

SUPPORT Mrs Christine Double

Summary:

There seems to be plenty of land already available for use and as yet unused, so this land should be developed before any new areas, especially green-field sites, are added. Existing brown-field sites should be redeveloped first.

Representation ID: 8077

SUPPORT Mr Sam Surl

Summary:

I support this.

However, on this basis, there is more than enough land already allocated (based on 2014-2036 projections of East Of England Forecasting model) on Eye Airfield alone. There is absolutely no need to identify further areas - particularly if they are high quality agricultural land. This will create vast swathes of the Suffolk landscape under constant and unnecessary threat of development.

Representation ID: 7933

COMMENT Mr Peter Powell

Summary:

* The Sugar Beet Factory alone is already supplying more land than this JLP's projected requirement.
* Commercial sites proposed significantly more than identified need (which we believe is inflated)

Representation ID: 5343

COMMENT Mrs Louise Baldry

Summary:

I would support this approach but before allocating new green field sites the existing brownfield sites should be fully developed. There are many examples of where brownfield sites have simply remained undeveloped for many years, eg Sugar Beet site, industrial site in Paper Mill lane etc etc.

Representation ID: 4237

SUPPORT Mr John Bellwood

Summary:

The availability of employment land within both districts already far outweighs the forecast requirement. To identify above need risks employment development in unsuitable areas.

The Sugar Beet Factory alone is already supplying more land than this JLP's projected requirement. Should this site be a mixed development of housing and modern commercial business premises fit for the C21st.

Commercial sites proposed significantly more than the identified need (which we believe is inflated anyway)

Representation ID: 3139

SUPPORT Iain Pocock

Summary:

Forecasts are done for a reason. Given that economic growth is likely to be negatively impacted by Brexit, adopting the forecast as stated is likely to include a built in overestimate. Over allocation of land is likely to drive development into inappropriate areas
