Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Q4

Representation ID: 13215

OBJECT Building Partnerships Ltd represented by La Ronde Wright Limited (Mrs Nicole Wright)

Summary:

Policy CS3 of the adopted Core Strategy for Babergh 2014 states that a co-ordinated approach towards planning and development in nearby local authority areas will be adopted, and Policy CS7 allocates approximately 26 hectares of land within Babergh's Ipswich Fringe for mixed use development; this includes provision for about 350 new homes.
A significant shortfall in housing delivery is identified elsewhere in the document (p 18) and a step change in provision is needed to achieve the 'ambitious yet sustainable growth agenda' as stated in the Vision for the New Joint Local Plan.
A key part of the vision should build on adopted plan policy and focus on the relationship between core and hinterland villages such as Sproughton and Copdock and Washbrook, where sustainable growth can be more readily delivered. Both Parishes fall within the Ipswich Policy Area, which was first established in 2007 and is now defined in the adopted Ipswich Local Plan 2017, and are well located in terms of their proximity to the Ipswich fringe.

Summary:

In Babergh, to tum-around historically low rates of housing delivery, boost economic growth rates, achieve higher jobs growth and reduce net out-commuting the priority across Babergh should be to boost the supply of housing and support the provision of high quality new business accommodation accessible from Ipswich and well located in relation to the A14 and A12.

COMMENT Mr Bryan Fawcett

Summary:

* The protection of the rural identity of the district, the protection of the villages and their lifestyle, protection or rural amenities and recreational space are objectives that all need to be defined within the plan. Development shouldn't lead to communities losing their identities by swamping and creeping coalescence.
* Location of growth to needs to be spread more pragmatically across Babergh rather than fewer large sites which will minimise the impact on individual communities and villages maintaining the rural lifestyle chosen by those who lives there.

There is already a substantial excess of employment land over forecast growth needs. These areas need to be allocated in the Ipswich area.

COMMENT Miss R P Baillon

Summary:

Debenham. Due to past building projects and current building developments the population of the village has grown significantly resulting in the village being in dire need of improved amenities and better infrastructure. Maps of the village depict the enormous development on all sides of the historic, core village which demonstrates an imbalance of development. Schools and doctor surgery are oversubscribed. Traffic needs to be controlled within the village.

the issue of potential flooding with further building projects needs to be addressed by carrying out thorough research.

COMMENT J W Baldwin Farms represented by Pegasus Group (Mr Robert Barber)

Summary:

My client strongly considers that the key priority for the new Joint Local Plan is delivering the housing which the residents of Mid Suffolk and Babergh desperately need. The chronic shortage of housing at a local and national level is well documented. Both Councils should proactively and positively plan, and work with developers, to significantly boost housing delivery across the Plan area. Accordingly, defining a robust housing target for the two districts in the context of legal requirements, the NPPF's tests of soundness for Local Plans and the government's proposal for a new standard methodology for determining local housing need is absolutely vital and should form the backbone of the of the new Joint Local Plan.

COMMENT David Black & Sons Ltd. (Mr. James Black)

Summary:

In Mid-Suffolk many smaller villages experience a loss of younger families as traditional council owned accomodation no longer exists. Some of this type of accomodation is needed to ensure that the demographic population model is not distorted. In recent times many houses have been built for individual capital gains taking advantage of the current taxation rules. To maintain a balance there needs to be more focus on a variety of rentable accomodation, which Housing Associations might provide.

Summary:

Babergh.
The preservation and enhancement of our natural and historic heritage.
The Local Plan needs to identify areas for housing that minimise the loss of our most productive agricultural land and heritage assets as well as minimise the introduction of vast volumes of traffic that will damage our communities with increased noise and air pollution.
Also to identify the types of housing needed by communities rather than those types that landowners and developers would like to build to maximise their profits.

Summary:

In Babergh, more emphasis should be placed on protecting the environment especially in those areas designated AONBs.

Summary:

4 Mid Suffolk should prioritise support to rural communities to encourage moderately sized developments, sufficient to require an affordable housing allocation, and to produce CIL finance to enhance the infrastructure, but developed progressively to ensure the community evolves while maintaining the village character. Large developments proposed to make the most profit out of land holdings can easily distort the balance of communities and create divisions, as well as putting un-necessary stress on local services, and the local conservation area and character of villages that have developed over centuries.

Growth should be evenly spread across the whole of the Babergh area and the required infrastructure to support that growth, including services should be formally identified in the local plan and be providid in the right place at the right time.

COMMENT Babergh Green Party (Mr Robert Lindsay)

Summary:

Aa key objective should be "To lessen car dependency for citizens of the two districts"
The way to achieve this would be to cease investment in new roads, but better maintain the roads we already have, invest more in public transport, cycling and walking. Planning objectives should steer developers towards homes within walking or cycling distance of public transport hubs and shops, GP surgeries and other facilities. In that way new developments do not increase car dependency.
This would improve health, help improve the sense of community in towns and villages, reduce congestion and pollution and cut carbon emissions.

Developments for both commercial and residential should be preceded by infrastructure in every case. This should not be an after thought.

OBJECT Miss Abigail Mayston

Summary:

Rural communities have a distinct identity and are inhabited by people who choose this lifestyle over town or city living. The plan must be able to protect these communities and explicity identifify how it will protect them from being absorbed by the process of creeping coalescence. The plan must identify how it will protect rural lifestyle, comm7nity groups and recreational spaces. The plan needs to acknowledge how it manage the issues of rising crime within its growth.

COMMENT Mr Vic Durrant

Summary:

* Proposed development shouldn't lead to communities losing their identities and cohesion by swamping and creeping coalescence (merging of communities).
* Developments must be located and spread more pragmatically across the District and must be based on an increased number of smaller sites rather than fewer large sites. This would also serve to increase the number of local builders involved (rather than large National builders) with all the 'knock on' benefits this would provide the area (employment, services, etc).

Summary:

Copdock/Washbrook

Priority should be given to road improvements before residential/business developments are considered, particularly A14/A12 junction at Copdock interchange.
Only small scale housing and business developments that compliment existing locations should only be considered. Priority should also be given to Brown Field sites that are unused. (Ipswich Sugar Beet Factory for one)
Improved and sustainable infrastructures for schools, utilities and healthcare provisions need to be implemented prior to additional housing.

Summary:

Babergh

A more pragmatic apportionment of housing across the district. Small scale housing and employment developments that compliment existing settlements and do not swamp them.
The district to focus on infrastructure developments to support these.

Major road infrastructure is unlikely to happen, due to cost, so remove the need for it by restricting growth in known problem areas, i.e. A14/A12 around Copdock interchange. Focus on beneficial infrastructure investments of schools and healthcare provision.

OBJECT Mr Neil Lister

Summary:

Priority should be investment in sustainable infrastructure, environment, society rather than 'growth ambitions'. 'Growth ambitions' are finite and must be subservient to ensuring that we have a world where people are able to live and work, surrounded by a functioning ecosystem. Economy will inevitably be subservient to environment.

Re word:
'New Joint Local Plan will set out an ambitious, fully sustainable growth agenda which will prioritise the investment in environment, society, infrastructure required to deliver sustainable growth and will identify the locations for delivering the necessary natural habitat, housing, employment and recreation provision'.

Summary:

Mid Suffolk District Council have a history of not being able to demonstrate a five
year housing land supply as required by paragraph 47 of The Framework. To make
up for the shortfall in provision and ensure sufficient housing numbers are delivered
going forward, housing should be a priority across the district. New housing should
be distributed in sustainable locations across the district, including the rural areas, in
line with paragraph 55 of The Framework which seeks to promote sustainable

COMMENT Iain Pocock

Summary:

Maintenance of the distinction between the essentially rural village and the major towns, restricting "creep" of the latter to absorb surrounding rural communities and allowing modest growth in the former to allow new younger residents to access the village environment by the addition of affordable housing so that such communities can continue to flourish, Recognition of the key levels of infrastructure is critical as many villages (eg Copdock & Washbrook) lack facilities, are already used as rat runs due to insufficient transport infrastructure and are close to existing planning proposals (eg Belsetead quarry) which will exacerbate the situation

Summary:

Response: For Babergh the priority should be the provision of enhanced infrastructure to support any future developments - road networks, public transport, healthcare, schools and healthcare. Some priority should be given to meeting the needs of an increasingly ageing population. This is best dealt with by the provision of a New Town, located centrally and planned from scratch. 'Bolting on' developments to existing villages just will not work.

Mid Suffolk should have healthy communities and infrastructure but this is at risk of not being achieved as Mid Suffolk & Babergh merge in contradiction to the democratic vote against a merger in 2011.

COMMENT Simon Bell

Summary:

Mid Suffolk District's main priority should be the provision of improved infrastructure, particularly in the areas of road, rail and broadband provision. Delivering the Council's Vision is significantly impeded without improvement in the communication network for both travel and internet.

Consideration should be given to dualling the A140, bypassing some of the villages along the route. This will create land for development of key housing and employment sites.

In addition, the rail connection along the Ipswich to Cambridge route, via Bury St Edmunds would support growth in the key areas mentioned.
