Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Q17

Representation ID: 13166

SUPPORT Taylor Wimpey represented by Boyer Planning (Mr. James Bailey)

Summary:

We agree that the Councils should support an approach towards self-build and custom build dwellings, as supported by Government guidelines. This would ensure a provision of a mix of housing.

It is, however, noted that no specific policy has been suggested as to what approach the Councils would adopt in respect of this.

SUPPORT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

Custom/self-build homes are also a realistic opportunity to add to the character and richness of a community, especially in villages and hamlets. Individual or small clusters of self builds create more work for local builders and trades, keeping wealth within the local community. They create character and interest due to the genuine diversities of design and construction which matches the character of Suffolk and village communities. They tend to be what is needed because they are built by people who need them

Representation ID: 12839

OBJECT Persimmon Homes (Anglia) (Ms Laura Townes)

Summary:

A requirement to include a proportion of self-build plots in a development site would not be supported. It is acknowledged in the consultation document that many of these on the self-build register require a single plot of land as opposed to land which is part of a larger development. Therefore, this approach would not cater for need and would be an unnecessary additional burden on development.

COMMENT Lacy Scott & Knight (Mr. Alex Turner)

Summary:

We have submitted several potential self-build sites in the 2016 Call for Sites. No explanation was given that these would be disregarded in terms of the land allocation process. There appears to be no process for identifying whether a proposed self-build site is potentially suitable in planning terms, in the same way market housing schemes are assessed.

Consultation provide no feedback regarding the suitability of proposed self-build sites. Providing this feedback would give a level of confidence to potential self-build individuals in identifying suitable sites and seeking planning approval.

Designating potentially suitable self-build plots and providing feedback will assist self-builders in locating suitable plots and provide landowners feedback on the suitability of their land for self-build plots.

COMMENT South Suffolk Constituency Labour Party (Ms Emma Bishton)

Summary:

Babergh should encourage inclusion of well-designed flats. These
could for example be focused on the needs of older people, or help address the
need for homes to rent for younger people. Good quality flats can be both
appealing and environmentally more sustainable than individual houses.

COMMENT Stowmarket Town Council (Ms Michelle Marshall)

Summary:

Stowmarket Town Council has no objection to the proposed approach. Due to the nature of some self builds, there may be instances of homes being built where only a limited type of dwelling would be suitable and planning policies would need to reflect this to encourage innovation and excellence.

COMMENT Miss R P Baillon

Summary:

It is not clear what the proposed approach is towards self-build and custom built dwellings. Where permission is granted for these dwellings the plans need to be rigorously explored and then the development needs to be monitored carefully so that the plans are adhered to and that the buildings are of a design that is appropriate in the designated area.

Representation ID: 8072

COMMENT Botesdale & Rickinghall CAP Group (Mr. William Sargeant)

Summary:

The low overall yield assessed in the SHELAA for many of the proposed sites indicates that there could be opportunities to nominate sites for self-build and custom build dwellings. However, the relationship between landowner and developer may challenge the practicality of such arrangements.

COMMENT Mrs Annette Brennand

Summary:

Self-build / custom-build for personal occupation (as opposed to development) along the lines of the continental model should be encouraged. Such development tends to be organic and is consistent with how settlements in the UK have historically 'grown up'

More details about Rep ID: 7601

SUPPORT Mr Peter Powell

Summary:

If BDC encouraged those with existing planning permissions to build it would reduce the overall number of houses required. Some of these existing planning permissions will include self builds so should be supported.

Representation ID: 7364

COMMENT Mr Mark Blackwell

Summary:

Self build, or community self build should be highly encuraged. Rather than concetrate profits in large companies, allow local communities to plan and build their own developments. The result will be housing that is attractive because those building them will be the ones living there, which should also naturally limit impact on existing residents.

Summary:

Due to the nature of some self builds e.g. almost entirely self sufficient eco homes there may be instances of homes being built where only a limited type of dwelling would be suitable and the planning policies need to reflect this and to encourage innovation and excellence.

More details about Rep ID: 6958

Representation ID: 6679

COMMENT Mr Alan Lewis

Summary:

The granting of planning permission for self-build should be subject to the same scrutiny as other proposals for building, and must meet the necessary sustainability and aesthetic criteria. However, many self-builders are minded to implement eco-friendly building approaches, and this should be encouraged and used as input into the planning decision.

Representation ID: 6388

SUPPORT MSDC Green Group (Cllr John Matthissen)

Summary:

Self build is supported and will need greater assistance to become more popular. Suitable small areas should be allocated within larger sites, and community land trusts promoted to retain such sites in this unique tenure, adding to diversity. Policy should encourage innovation and excellence. Matching of single sites as proposed should also continue.

Representation ID: 6095

SUPPORT Stowmarket Society (Mr Michael Smith)

Summary:

We can see no case for the planning system becoming involved in this issue. In Planning terms Self-builders should surely be judged like other residential developers. There is no planning logic in granting permission for a dwelling that would otherwise be refused, because the developer is a self-builder. Why convey such favouritism on this group?

Representation ID: 3660

COMMENT Mr Neil Lister

Summary:

Sites should not be allocated for dwellings away from public transport routes. There should be a requirement for dwellings to be designed, coloured, landscaped so that their visual impact is minimal.

COMMENT Fressingfield Parish Council (Mr Alexander Day)

Summary:

The Parish Council were in favour of encouraging self build or custom build properties in the area. It was considered a means whereby the overall cost of a dwelling could be reduced by mitigating the labour costs. Many of these types of dwellings could be expected as windfall rather than forming part of an estate and the District Council are encouraged to ensure that there isn't a proliferation of 3/4 bedroom houses build for the occupier when in fact, the housing need across the area would suggest the overall demand was for other designs - perhaps bungalows or smaller dwellings.

The council should do much more to encourage self builds, there is a huge demand but a real scarcity of land available to the self builder.
I believe there should be a prerequisite of any development should be an allowance for 10% of the land to be made available for self build furthermore by specifying the size of such plots the council could ensure there are an appropriate number of starter and small family homes built.

Summary:

The register is a convenient way to obscure the real demand for self build which is significantly higher than your figures suggest. NACSBA shows substantial demand for self build. Your plan discrimates against this group
Self build is efficient, effective, drives up quality, leads to stable communities (self builders on average stay in their houses for over 25 years) and reduces costs, particularly for younger people, especially if sites can be released on the edge of existing settlements with an exception label.
Self build in conjunction with affordable housing can be used as a way of ensuring land affordability
