Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Option RE2

Representation ID: 11879

SUPPORT Dedham Vale Society (Mr. David Eking)


We support Option RE2 rather than RE1. Any application for renewable energy construction within or adjacent to the AONB will almost certainly always be unacceptable in landscape/environment terms.

SUPPORT Stour & Orwell Society (Ms Emma Proctor King)


SOS very strongly supports option RE2. Renewables developments can disfigure sensitive landscapes. There must be adequate direction given to ensure the avoidance of sensitive valued landscapes, criss-crossed by public rights of way and leisure routes. Such a policy could have avoided the need for a major public inquiry, such as that into the proposed 100 acre Tattingstone/Alton Water solar farm, which was recommended for approval, but refused by Members and dismissed decisively on appeal. SOS would be happy to discuss the terms of such a criteria based policy with the Council.

SUPPORT Mr C Partridge


RE2 is sensible but needs to be carefully considered on a site by site basis so that the whole development is appropriate to the setting. It would be sensible in most cases for there to be smaller cottage style market housing alongside affordable homes in rural areas.

SUPPORT Mr Peter Powell


* The opportunity to do more is a good thing.
* We have a coastline that fronts the relatively shallow North Sea which is an ideal place for unobtrusive windfarms well offshore.
* Suffolk has a significant expanse of open fields that could support solar farms, and due to their low profile could do so sympathetically to the landscape
* However the balance also has to be carefully managed with Agriculture and Landscape. Food production is just as important for green management as is the green energy, protection of biodiversity and preservation of the landscape for society.

COMMENT Babergh Green Party (Mr Robert Lindsay)


We suggest that BMSDC should define impacts of renewable technologies as follows "BMSDC seeks to prevent unacceptable adverse impacts of renewable energy projects to designated wildlife sites (e.g. SSSI's, Nation Nature Reserves), species afforded legal protection, Scheduled Ancient Monuments and Grade I and II* listed buildings".
