Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - SS0726 - Land to the south of Corn Hatches Lane,
SUPPORT Mr Charles Course represented by Wincer Kievenaar Architects Limited, (Mr Craig Western)
Supports the inclusion of the site as having potential for employment use development, and would welcome its inclusion as a Development.
The established airfield is accessed off Whatfield Road, Elmsett. The airfield and complex of buildings on site are currently let to approximately 15 tenants. Some of which operate aircraft related businesses. The existing tenants generate approximately 50 jobs on site. Prior to any formal application process, landowner would continue to engage with the Parish council and residents.
The comments made on the SHELAA have been taken on board and it should be noted that although the whole site was submitted, it was not intended to develop the whole site area (8.16 Ha). The attached drawing in Appendix 1 illustrates an indicative proposal for the expansion of employment uses and CC would engage with the LPA as part of any subsequent application process.
COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)
Site SS0726* is of
particular concern as it surrounds the southern edge of Poplar Farm House, a Grade
II listed building. As a rural farm building set in open land its setting is an important
aspect of its significance. As such mitigation measures such as buffer zones and
open space should be considered as part of the allocation process. The site is
currently used as an airfield and this does not appear to be a historic airfield but
further information to clarify this is recommended. The site is not allocated for
residential use and it is not clear if the intended use will be associated with the
existing airfield or not.
The setting of heritage assets and the relationship of the village to its surroundings
should be considered in the site allocation process.
