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.

OBJECT Mr John Kitson

Summary:

Yes an impact assessment should be undertaken due to traffic and impact on ensuring the prosperity and provision of a good town centre. But perhaps the level of 400m2 should be set to be proportionate to the size of the town centre. So for instance in a small town 400m2 may have a dramatic impact but on the outskirts of Ipswich the NPPF threshold of 2,500m2 gross floorspace would be more appropriate.

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

Summary:

Asda supports the suggested threshold of 400sqm gross for impact assessments for all edge of centre and out of centre retail proposals. The requirement for retail impact assessments ensures an assessment of proposals, which are outwith the Town and District Centres, against the tests set out in the National Planning Policy Framework. This is vital to ensure that such proposals are correctly scrutinised and the relevant centres protected against unacceptable impact.
