Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Q36

Representation ID: 13179

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

Summary:

We support the fact that land is required to be allocated to uses such as this. It is suggested that these uses should be allocated on to land that is not suitable for residential development. Residential opportunities should be considered in suitable areas wherever possible to ensure that housing targets, can be met and sufficient housing numbers delivered. It is considered that the land for residential use should take precedence at most opportunities over that of employment and non-B class uses, as it has the potential to be located in areas that would not be sustainable for housing.

Representation ID: 12866

COMMENT Tidal Hill Limited represented by Armstrong Rigg Planning (Mr Geoff Armstrong)

Summary:

Often the type of non-B class uses such as those listed are best located within existing employment sites. With the anticipated decline in traditional manufacturing industry and further agriculture diversification a more flexible policy approach for business centres is considered necessary to avoid potential barriers to economic investment. Policies which are supportive of B Class uses but also closely related sui-generis uses which result in no unacceptable amenity, transport or other impacts should be sufficient to ensure such non B class uses are catered for.

Representation ID: 11707

COMMENT Haughley Park Consortium represented by Boyer Planning (Mr. James Bailey)

Summary:

We do not consider that the Councils should determine where non-B class uses, such as car showrooms, tyre and exhaust centres and building material stores, can be located. We consider that this is too restrictive and therefore not in compliance with the NPPF.

We consider that the policy should remain flexible when determining the location of B Class Uses on employment sites. Whilst we note that some employment sites, especially those that are located next to existing residential areas, will need to be sympathetically designed and will need to be of a Use Class that is sensitive to the nearby residential area, this should be determined on a case by case basis. We do not consider that a restraining policy setting on the location of Non-B Class Uses should be included in the emerging Joint Local Plan.

OBJECT Dr Ian Russell

Summary:

Not unless there is a real need in the Sudbury area. In general Sudbury should not duplicate what is already available in Colchester, Ipswich and Bury St Edmunds (e.g. car showrooms, shopping centres). The focus in Sudbury must be on attracting growing busineses in creative industries, science and technology, advanced manufacture, business services as identified in this consulation.

Summary:

Yes. Careful placement of these kinds of employment areas is important as they can totally destroy the historical and aesthetic aspects of a settlement. They are not the kind of employment areas suitable to be located in villages and hamlets.

Representation ID: 6211

COMMENT Stowmarket Society (Mr Michael Smith)

Summary:

Such a policy would require a detailed knowledge of the needs of these uses. Given that we have a good supply of employment land in the town then it may be preferable to have a policy for such uses with locational criteria. They should be provided on employment land, and some will require more prominent sites than others.

COMMENT Fressingfield Parish Council (Mr Alexander Day)

Summary:

As described in question 35, it is the Parish Council's view that additional sites could be most easily identified if an industry SHELAA were undertaken. Non B class uses as described would be best sited in urban centres and would be inappropriate in hinterland and hamlet communities.
