Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Option BS1

Representation ID: 13028

SUPPORT Ipswich Borough Council (

Summary:

The proposal to require an impact assessment for all edge of centre and out of centre retail proposals that are 400 square metres gross floorspace or more is different from that currently required in Ipswich of 200 square metres net or more. A common approach developed through all the Local Plans in the IFEA would be supported.

COMMENT Pigeon Investmenrt Management (Mr. Andrew Fillmore) represented by Beacon Planning Ltd (Ms Sophie Pain)

Summary:

Option BS1 appears to be a sensible approach with respect to water efficiency.
However, the application of standards which go beyond Building Regulations in all other respects should be fully justified. Building Regulations already set high standards for energy efficiency and whilst the aspiration of going even further is commendable a balance must be struck between this, development viability and housing affordability.

COMMENT Ms Caroline Powell

Summary:

If Suffolk wants to preserve their green environment then we should lead by example. The higher optional build standards are therefore the best option.
Issues to consider:
* the range of technologies that could be accommodated and the policies needed to encourage their development in the right places;
* the costs of many renewable energy technologies are falling, potentially increasing their attractiveness and the number of proposals;
* different technologies have different impacts and impacts can vary by place;
* the UK has legal commitments to cut greenhouse gases and meet increased energy demand from renewable sources. Whilst local authorities should design their policies to maximise renewable and low carbon energy development, there is no quota which the Local Plan has to deliver.
