Representations on BMSDC Joint Local Plan Consultation Document (Interactive) - Q52

Representation ID: 13188

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

Summary:

It is positive that the Council are seeking to support renewable technologies. However, the Council should also understand implications on viability associated with renewable technologies.

Representation ID: 12971

COMMENT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

Visual impact is a big consideration and care should be given to the energy benefits against the loss of food production which is also a green benefit to be preserved.

When considering the new build of larger groups of houses and other buildings there are many benefits from collective energy (power and heat) schemes. This can involve community heating schemes and, through small scale micro-grids, localised electricity generation, storage and distribution schemes. The technology is changing fast here, as are the cost / benefit ratios, and the Policy needs to be flexible to recognise this.

Representation ID: 11834

COMMENT Amber REI represented by Pegasus Group (Mr David Onions)

Summary:

The approach with regard to renewables should be led by the NPPF and other National Guidance. Often local policy requirements with regard to renewables, especially as they relate to energy generation, are not as effective or sustainable as alternative approaches such as those focusing on fabric first. Technology failure, limited lifespan of equipment and the need to provide ongoing maintenance often means that items required by a local policy, such as photo voltaic cells, quickly become redundant. In addition the provision of such items as solar panels and wind turbines can have a negative effect on the character of an area and particularly on such items as heritage assets.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Heather & Michael Earey

Summary:

Climate change
*Due to changing weather patterns the threat from flooding is becoming more uncertain along the river valley and SUDS (Sustainable Drainage Systems) are not adequate for sustained (several day) rainfall events especially in flood zones.
*We would recommend much more robust and critical assessment of SUDS on new developments feeding into river valleys and Flood plains and that they should be designed and built not to reduce additional flood risk but to eliminate any additional risk.
*In relation to renewable energy the balance also has to be carefully managed with Agriculture, Biodiversity and Landscape. Food production is just as important for green management as green energy, as is protection of biodiversity and preservation of the landscape for society.

COMMENT Catesby Estates Limited represented by Strutt & Parker LLP (Jen Carroll)

Summary:

The Council should consider the impacts of renewable technologies, both negative and positive, locally and nationally, especially in the context of reducing carbon dioxide emissions to tackle climate change.

On a dwelling scale any policy should work in conjunction with national standards such as the building regulations. Policy should not be overly burdensome or restrictive which could stifle innovation (paragraph 173 of the NPPF).

COMMENT Delphi Diesel Systems represented by Colliers International (Mr Leigh Thomas)

Summary:

We agree that, in order to meet the requirements set out in the NPPF, it is necessary to include a policy in the Local Plan which promotes the use of energy from renewable or low carbon sources, and in this regard the proposed Options RE1 and RE2 are appropriate. However, the requirements should be
subject to viability and allow sufficient flexibility for developers to provide justification to provide carbon reduction measures that are appropriate for the needs of development.

COMMENT Historic England (Katie Parsons)

Summary:

Listed buildings, buildings in conservation areas and scheduled monuments are
exempted from the need to comply with energy efficiency requirements of the
Building Regulations where compliance would unacceptably alter their character or
appearance. Special considerations under Part L of the Building Regulations are also
given to locally listed buildings, buildings of architectural or historic interest.

It is recommended take emerging policies relating to climates change and energy efficiency in historic buildings are formulated with this in mind.

The design and siting of some energy efficiency equipment can have impacts upon the character and appearance of historic places. Policies which promote or encourage a blanket approach to energy efficiency technology for should be avoided without some sort of qualification with regards to heritage assets and their settings.

COMMENT Miss R P Baillon

Summary:

Research institutions including universities involved in work on renewable energy and sustainable construction should be consulted so that the most appropriate schemes are introduced. These experts would be able to give full details of the types of effects that would occur. Also, the population in the vicinity of the proposed introduction of the new technologies should be consulted. It is important not to involve organisations with a financial interest at the stage of research as they often do not have the expertise required and have to buy in assistance. Sub-contracting always involves increased financial costs.

COMMENT Mrs Mel Seager

Summary:

With renewable energy the balance also has to be carefully managed with Agriculture, Biodiversity and Landscape. Food production is just as important for green management as green energy, as is protection of biodiversity and preservation of the landscape for society.
If Suffolk wants to preserve their green environment then we should lead by example. The higher optional build standards are therefore the best option.
Issues to consider:
*the range of technologies that could be accommodated and the policies needed to encourage their development in the right places;
*the costs of many renewable energy technologies are falling, increasing their attractiveness;
*different technologies have different impacts;
*the UK has legal commitments to cut greenhouse gases and meet increased energy demand from renewable sources.

COMMENT Cllr John Hinton

Summary:

We should remember when comparing systems, a solar farm lasts for say optimistically 20 years, and then can be returned to agriculture, and food production. A housing estate with solar panels on the houses is there for ever!! NO food production in the future. Land is a finite resource, we cannot eat electricity!

Representation ID: 8578

COMMENT Woolpit Parish Council (Mrs Peggy Fuller)

Summary:

We feel that biodiversity should be a major factor in determining the approval for renewable projects. We suggest that solar farms should comply with BRE and RSPB recommended standards for biodiversity: (http://www.bre.co.uk/filelibrary/nsc/Documents%20Library/NSC%20Publications/National-Solar-Centre---Biodiversity-Guidance-for-Solar-Developments--2014-.pdf)

Weight should be given to whether renewable technologies would improve biodiversity, or reduce it. Given that most intensively farmed arable land is heavily sprayed, solar farms built on this land would improve biodiversity, with the right ecological management plans.

This policy closely supports the councils' preferred biodiversity option BIO2.

Representation ID: 8475

COMMENT Sproughton Parish Council (Mrs Susan Frankis)

Summary:

The Local Plan needs to support the transition to a low carbon future and encourage renewables. A balance between visual impact, landscape, habitat designations, change of arable land use to solar farms needs to be considered. There is a need for innovative solutions and consideration give to the needs of new schools and employment opportunities.

Representation ID: 8376

COMMENT Mr Peter Powell

Summary:

Suffolk has the advantage of the shallow North Sea to site windfarms well offshore, the infrastructure associate with them is not helpful but less impact than the windfarms might otherwise be.
Solar Farms are a bit different as there may be a green trade off between farming and solar power, though there doesn't need to be any permanence to solar farms. Ideally land unwanted for farming, which can integrate around it, or be used in a cycle with other land allowing land to rest would be best.

COMMENT Ms Helen Davies

Summary:

The Policy should take a proactive approach to the development of renewable energy, not only in terms of stand-alone sites, but also to retrofitting on existing buildings and integration into new build. It is quite right that renewable energy installations need to be sensitive to the landscape and minimise visual impacts. The government provides extensive guidance to doing this. Babergh has an opportunity be creative here and make things better for the next generation/s

COMMENT RSPB Stour Estuary and Wolves Wood (Mr Mark Nowers)

Summary:

The RSPB recognises the important role of renewable energy development in protecting our environment over the long term. Our main concern is that this renewable energy development is not developed to the detriment of biodiversity. Thus, we recommend that ecological sensitivity should be an important determinant of renewable energy location and that constraint mapping should be carried out, and include Special Protection Areas, Special Areas of Conservation, Ramsar sites, SSSIs, AONBs, Ancient Woodlands, RSPB Bird Sensitivity Areas, etc. These areas of ecological sensitivity must also be considered during application review.

COMMENT Mr Neil Lister

Summary:

Threat from flooding is increasing along main rivers and smaller watercourses. SUDS are inadequate for sustained rainfall events, especially in flood zones. Must be more robust/critical assessment of SUDS on new developments and these should be designed and built to eliminate any additional risk. Delivering renewable energy balance also has to be Plan Policy. Increased energy from renewable/low carbon helps deliver secure energy supply. Reduce greenhouse gas emissions and prioritise investment in new jobs/business that actually deliver such technologies. Deliver new renewable/low carbon energy infrastructure where environmental impact is acceptable.

COMMENT Fressingfield Parish Council (Mr Alexander Day)

Summary:

The Parish Council supports MSDCs view that RE2 would be the sensible approach. The Parish Council felt that close attention should be paid to the renewable energy sources for self build and windfall developments as these would be likely to be individual dwellings and maybe the highest level 4 of energy efficiency standards should be applied in these circumstances. Conversely if the highest standards are applied to Starter Homes together with novel methods of renewable energy sources then this may make the property value too high to comply with the current criteria for Starter Homes.

Representation ID: 3476

COMMENT Mr John Kitson

Summary:

Visual impact and avoidance of intrusion (e.g. noise, reflection/glare/flashing) are major considerations & most frequently associated with moving machinery typically wind turbines. Steps should be taken to avoid equipment that can produce these unwanted effects. Solar Farms can be sited where they have little or no visual impact on the landscape but there is a downside from the potential loss of food production.

When considering the new build of larger groups of houses and other buildings there are many benefits from collective energy (power and heat) schemes. This can involve community heating schemes and, through small scale micro-grids, localised electricity generation, storage and distribution schemes. The technology is changing fast here, as are the cost / benefit ratios, and the Policy needs to be flexible to recognise this.

OBJECT Drinkstone Parish Council (Mrs Daphne Youngs)

Summary:

The only option FR1 offered is totally inadequate and in no way complies with the national government requirement for Local Planning Authorities to adopt proactive strategies to mitigate and adapt to climate change. There is no evidence of innovative thinking, or developing proposals for resilience or adaptation to climate change. Catchment management planning, reducing run off and the use of green infrastructure to achieve this have not been considered. There are no specific proposals for either developing renewable energy infrastructure, or for maximising the use of renewable and clean energy sources.

COMMENT Anglian Water (Mr Stewart Patience)

Summary:

Anglia Waters 5-yearly investment cycles (Asset Management Plan AMP). Customer charges will be set following submissions from Anglian Water about what it will cost to deliver the business plan.

As a business we are keen to increase the amount of renewable energy which is generated on land in Anglian Water's ownership. Anglian Water has a large portfolio of sites and some of these are potentially suitable for the generation of renewable energy.

It is noted that the Councils have identified the inclusion of a locally specific criteria for renewable energy technologies as their preferred option but does not include reference to the circumstances in which renewable energy technologies will be approved. Therefore it is proposed that the Joint Plan should include a positive reference to renewable developments which are proposed to support Anglian Water's existing infrastructure.
We would welcome further discussions with the County Council in relation to the wording of Policy RLP37.
