Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Q45

Representation ID: 13183

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

Summary:

We agree with Option TC1 that within Town Centres support will be given to retail uses, culture and community uses and residential development. The inclusion of residential development within a Town Centre is important to the town's function and diversity. This residential use enables the town to be active not just during trading hours but throughout the day, resulting in the area being more vibrant, varied and a more sustainable place to live. This also assists with creating a more vibrant community.

COMMENT Mr Bryan Fawcett

Summary:

Restricting all retail growth to town centres may be too restrictive as some growth may need to be accommodated away from town centres where sites become available. Retail policy is inclined towards town centre growth, however as a rural community this is impractical without improved parking or an efficient transport network. I would support the use of the considerable oversupply of commercial sites coming forward as retail/leisure parks or even housing, especially where those sites are brownfield and have little community/environmental impact.

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

Both of the Districts' town centres incorporate a rich and varied historic environment
with many heritage assets. Efforts to retain and enhance the vitality and viability of
the town centres should therefore be linked to the conservation and enhancement of
its historic environment. Policies should encourage the enhancement of local
character and the public realm.

Representation ID: 2933

COMMENT Diss & District Neighbourhood Plan Steering Group (Ms Deborah Sarson)

Summary:

The DDNPSG notes the inter-relationship between Eye and Diss and to an extent some other District and local centres. It is contended that, apart from the growth limitation proposed for Eye resulting from the Town Centres and Retail Study having highlighted the percentages shopped in nearby Diss, there is insufficient cognisance taken of the influence that Diss has over a much wider area, amply illustrated by the area shown in Appendix 3.6: weekly shop in the Functional Clusters study.

Representation ID: 2756

SUPPORT Asda Stores Limited represented by Jigsaw Planning (Mrs Katherine Sneeden)

Summary:

Asda supports the Stowmarket Town Centre boundary and the intended inclusion of the Asda store within the Primary Shopping Area.

Stowmarket Town Centre plays a vital role within the retail hierarchy providing core facilities to the communities which it serves. As such Stowmarket Town Centre continues to have a role of providing services to the community and as such its continued allocation as a Town Centre is appropriate. The Asda store forms a major anchor within the Town Centre creating footfall for the benefit of the rest of the Centre so its allocation within the Primary Shopping Area is also appropriate.

Summary:

Cockfield Parish Council believes that this has no direct impact upon or relevance to the village and so offers no response.

Representation ID: 2191

OBJECT Mr. A. Breen

Summary:

The shops that exist in the smaller towns are often also provide residential accommodation. They are often family owned businesses and are likely to disappear when a proprietor retires from their business. The property prices are too high for people to be able to fund a mortgage from the business. By designating 'shopping' areas in all but a very few towns you chain proprietors into being unable to sell either the business or the property. A major re-think on what a town centre should be will be necessary.
