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

Representation ID: 13263

OBJECT Sproughton Parish Council (Mrs Susan Frankis)

Summary:

On the back of this data the JLP proposes significant home building to accommodate significant migration into the area to fulfil the employment needs of significant growth in business/employment.
But the JLP does little or nothing to promote growth in Business other than bring in more potential employees by building more housing.
The government is pushing growth in the Midlands and Northern Powerhouse and they have much better business infrastructures. Suffolk cannot compete with this to attract new business unless councils introduce competitive incentives and improve the business infrastructure of the county. But this JLP proposes nothing constructive to achieve that.
This JLP is good for business as more housing will increase the unemployed pool making it easier and often cheaper to run a business, but that doesn't mean growth.

COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)

Summary:

The New Anglia Economic Strategy is relevant to developing the objectives of the Plan.

OBJECT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

The excess of commercial sites that have come forward could be used for retail parks / leisure parks if there was a shortage of retail areas in town centres or where the parking / vehicle access needs for specific retail businesses could not be accommodated in towns centres.
The excess of commercial sites that have come forward may be suitable to provide housing need especially where brownfield sites are available.
The options and questions in this section of the JLP appear to be backward looking and out of touch with the requirements for more flexible and diverse modern enterprises.

Representation ID: 12807

OBJECT East Bergholt Parish Council (Valerie Ayton)

Summary:

Why does this not come first? Is the prime reason for the plan just growth in houses? Hidden issue is employment is in Ipswich, Colchester, Cambridge, London not Babergh, resulting in low business rate income. Must protect employment and consider what is required to sustain it.

Main criticism is this section has no vision or over-view and so just adds to what is there rather than saying why and what we want the District to be. May or may not be a conflict between tourism/industrial development if not planned?

Employment data is out of date and optimistic. BDC suggest it may be an underestimate but with no reference to post Brexit conditions it is unreliable. Would seem obvious to look at potential to collocate new housing in proximity, so jobs and homes are planned together.

OBJECT Mr Bryan Fawcett

Summary:

JLP does little or nothing to promote growth in Business other than bring in more potential employees by building more housing. The government is pushing growth in the Midlands and Northern Powerhouse and they have much better business infrastructures. Suffolk cannot compete with this to attract new business unless councils introduce competitive incentives and improve the business infrastructure of the county. But this JLP proposes nothing constructive to achieve that. This JLP is good for business as more housing will increase the unemployed pool making it easier and often cheaper to run a business, but that doesn't mean growth. But if house building is not matched by business growth it will not be good for the bulk of the resident population as there will be no increase in overall wealth in the community, but the community will be supporting a bigger population.

OBJECT Mr Bryan Fawcett

Summary:

A clear oversight in the JLP is that the effects of Brexit has not been considered, either in trade, employment or migration calculations. The JLP 20 year projections based on historic data, all pre Brexit Vote, and the bulk of growth came from migration, so are likely to be very over optimistic. Council finances dependent on growth but projections appear optimistic. The finances of every council depend on attracting growth so this is nationally competitive and yet there is no policy to achieve this. The Sugar Beet Factory site alone is already more land than the projected requirement for employment land with a total oversupply of 187 hectares (identified need is 12.3 hectares).Commercial brownfield sites should be considered in preference to greenfield for all types of development.

COMMENT Environment Agency (Miss Charlie Christensen)

Summary:

We note that employment uses are proposed at brownfield sites, including development at Eye Airfield. For such proposed development, contamination assessments and remediation are likely to be required. Development in such an area does however offer the opportunity to aid betterment of land and water quality.

COMMENT South Suffolk Constituency Labour Party (Ms Emma Bishton)

Summary:

The plan does not appear to consider the potential impact of Brexit on economic
growth and activity in the district. We appreciate that it is not possible to
calculate the likely impact at present, however the council should acknowledge
the need for ongoing assessment of potential impact in regard to employment,
and consequent flexibility in their approach. Two key areas that could be affected
and that could have an impact on the types of housing required are London
commuting and farming.

OBJECT Mr Nigel Roberts

Summary:

The data sets used are clearly out of date and likely optimistic (see 1 above). The draft however still suggests employment growth may be an underestimate but with no justification or reference to post Brexit conditions so this approach is unreliable. It is stated in the draft though that even today there is more industrial land than is required, so it would seem obvious to look at the potential to collocate new housing in close proximity, so that jobs and homes are planned to be together ( as opposed to miles apart as seems to be increasingly the case!).

OBJECT Babergh Alliance of Parish & Town Councils (Helen Davies)

Summary:

Jobs forecast does not support the level of housing growth suggested. The JLP turns this on its head suggesting if more houses are built, more jobs will be required. Is this wishful thinking? More evidence is needed.

Proposed employment land is already considerably in excess of demand. Recent planning decisions indicates some of it is in the wrong place - not where developers want to build.


The options and questions in this section of the JLP appear to be backward looking and out of touch with the requirements for more flexible and diverse modern enterprises. Council should consider operating a database to assist developers in locating the most appropriate location for their business.

OBJECT Orwell Ahead (Mr Mark Ling) and 2 others

Summary:

With a rethink of District boundaries the area could deliver ambitious economic growth. There should be a business and academic led member group dedicated to the growth of Greater Ipswich and Orwell. New Anglia LEP Board representation for the Ipswich and Felixstowe area should not fall below 30% or proportion of GVA. There should be a permanent New Anglia LEP Board position for the Felixstowe Port Users Association or the Port of Felixstowe. Ipswich Borough Council should rejoin the Haven Gateway. New Anglia LEP should work in greater partnership with Haven Gateway.

Summary:

There are problems with power for the Sugar Beet site but new proposals for "mini" nuclear power reactors could meet the need and act as a back up to the expanding but unreliable offshore wind sector to supply the thousands of houses that the SHMA proposes!

COMMENT Cllr John Hinton

Summary:

Employment land needs to be identified. It should be offered flexibly to new potential employers. Economic viability will affect take up and councils inability to monitor does not produce confidence. Reuse of existing sites for employment and housing should be a priority. Big sites near the county line with grand users are better than nothing but skills. Innovation, high paid jobs, then they will have to commute to other areas as we only seem to attract the low paid sector. There is also a commuter section that draws low paid employees from outside the District further complicating the jobs market
