COMMENT Dr Jonathan Tuppen

Summary:

District Councils could agree to consult specifically on landscape impacts of developments more closely with local parishes at an early stage.

Local designations, in particular 'Special Landscape Area', should be strengthened. While frequently referred to in planning hearings the impact to date has been negligible. This is in sharp contrast to common practice in other districts where similar local designations are enforced by officers and planning committees alike

Representation ID: 12930

COMMENT Suffolk County Council (Mr. Robert Feakes)

Summary:

Given the robust evidence base at both County and District Level and within the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the removal of Special Landscape Areas is reasonable option, and the switch to a wholly criteria based approach to landscape issues in the wider countryside may be appropriate. If Special Landscape areas are to continue, the District Councils would need to review and update the evidence base.
However, a hybrid approach using Landscape Character, but incorporating the identification, (rather than designation) of locally sensitive and valued landscape types against the current robust evidence base, could be the most comprehensive approach. Such an approach would provide a robust mechanism to highlight locally important/ sensitive and valued landscapes to ensure that proposals responded to these local sensitivities effectively, but within the framework of criteria based approach founded on Landscape Character Assessment.

COMMENT Mr Gary Clark

Summary:

* Local area/spot designations like Special Landscape areas, cherished view points, wildlife, flora and fauna reserves etc. have evolved from many years' experience and often considerable efforts by communities, sometimes based on fleeting observations of rare species. They preserve the best of our environment & any policy that introduces a subjective opinion has the risk of overlooking years of experience and effort in favour of financial considerations.
* A point overlooked is the sequence of Landscape Character designations that run down from The Holliday Inn, through Chantry Vale and Sproughton and into the Gipping Valley. There is only one other place in Suffolk with the same combination and that is Dedham Vale which is designated as an Area of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB). Does anyone know of a famous local artist?

COMMENT Gladman (Mr Richard Crosthwaite)

Summary:

The potential impacts of development proposals on their wider landscape
setting are individual factors that should be considered by the decision maker when determining any planning proposal. This position should be reflected in the wording of any associated policies, which will need to be positively framed and make clear that planning permission would only be refused where any identified harm significantly and demonstrably outweighs the benefits of a development proposal.

it is often possible for development proposals to be sympathetically masterplanned to positively respond to their wider environmental setting and this should therefore be recognised and reflected within the wording of the proposed policies (and the exercise undertaken to establish any site allocations for inclusion within the Plan).

Representation ID: 12111

COMMENT Gladman (Mr Richard Crosthwaite)

Summary:

Any policy that is proposed to protect environmental assets should be in line with national policy set out in the Framework. Generally, the level of protection accorded to a particular asset should be commensurate with its status. The relative benefits and harm associated with requirements of such policies should then be taken into account when determining planning applications.

COMMENT The Thornhill Settlement (John Davie-Thornhill) represented by Strutt & Parker LLP (Melissa Reynolds)

Summary:

We support the inclusion of Option L2 - Remove local landscape designations and apply a criteria based policy on the basis that, as stated by the Council, 'this would require all development to minimise impacts on the landscape and to enhance landscape character wherever possible, by reference to the Joint Babergh and Mid Suffolk Landscape Guidance'; and that it 'provides the greatest potential to protect and enhance the landscape through decision making across the Districts'. Option L1 is open to subjective assessment and does not consider the wider landscape impact. Furthermore, a less restrictive Special Landscape Area policy would also assist in tackling the Districts' low housing supply, by potentially making more land available for development where the relevant criteria are met.

COMMENT Heathpatch Limited represented by Wincer Kievenaar Architects Limited, (Mr Craig Western)

Summary:

There is a diverse and rich quality of landscape areas which are not necessarily protected by any current designations, but are worthy of due consideration as part of any planning application. In particular, this can be said of many edge of village locations.

Whilst there is no objection to the removal of landscape designations, there should be a policy based assessment of sensitive locations, and this should be critiqued by a
suitably experienced landscape architect or consultant.

SUPPORT Bloor Homes Eastern (Mr Gary Duncan) represented by JB Planning Associates (Mr Nicholas Ward)

Summary:

We note that the Councils' initial preference is to remove local landscape
designations and apply a criteria based policy. We are supportive of this approach,
which we consider more accurately reflects national policy. Any future development
of SS0436 would seek to fully accord with the content of any such criteria based
policy, and appropriate landscape planting will be undertaken in order to minimise
impacts upon the area.

They preserve the best of our environment & any policy that introduces a subjective opinion has the risk of overlooking years of experience and effort in favour of financial considerations.
* A point overlooked is the sequence of Landscape Character designations that run down from The Holliday Inn, through Chantry Vale and Sproughton and into the Gipping Valley. There is only one other place in Suffolk with the same combination and that is Dedham Vale which is designated as an Area of Outstanding National Beauty (AONB). Does anyone know of a famous local artist?

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

Summary:

The Council identify two options with regard to landscape designation. Option 1 which includes maintaining local landscape designations has no policy basis in the NPPF or any other nationally prescribed planning guidance. This should not be pursued as an option.

Option L2 provides a more appropriate response but it must be recognised that landscape impacts are only one of a number of potential considerations associated with development options.

Summary:

Intended approach appears to be consistent with the provisions of the NPPF, but until the content of the Landscape Sensitivity Assessment is known it is not clear whether the approach advocated by Option L2 is appropriate. In addition to the Stour Valley Project Area, there are areas on the fringes of the Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, such as Box Valley, that are also valuable in landscape terms. While the importance of Shotley Peninsula is acknowledged, it would be appropriate to identify areas of known sensitivity to ensure that they are managed correctly, and their landscape value is enhanced.

Summary:

Within the combined districts, there is a diverse and rich quality of landscape areas
which are not necessarily protected by any current designations, but are worthy of
due consideration as part of any planning application. In particular, this can be said of many edge of village locations. Whilst there is no objection to the removal of landscape designations, there should be a policy based assessment of sensitive locations, and this should be critiqued by a suitably experienced landscape architect or consultant.

Should both maintain local designations and expect all development to minimise impacts on the landscape and to enhance landscape character where possible. Mid Suffolk's landscapes are well described in the Suffolk Landscape Guidance, and these landscapes are in danger of disappearing as large-scale developments have encroached on the landscape.

In some locations the most significant and cherished landscape feature is a view and/or a gap that separates one settlement from another. Important to include a policy that recognises this to ensure the maintenance of local character and prevent coalescence of settlements.

High Suffolk plateau, for instance, and Gipping valley are worthy of protection. It would not be acceptable to abandon SLAs, VIOSs and AVRAs but to protect just those areas (Option L1) is not acceptable.

Working with the surroundings to create gains for better health and well-being for resident and improvements for wildlife should be adopted. See www.wildlifetrusts.org/housing.

COMMENT Woolverstone Parish Council (Mr Simon Pearce)

Summary:

Re-balance the proposals for growth so that these are centred on sustainable locations, close to transport nodes and not targeted on rural areas. To recognize that high quality agricultural land should not be sacrificed to housing. Recognise that rural areas are not just visual locations but also prone to degradation through noise - of traffic - in particular. To recognise that tranquility, natural beauty, wildlife and a rural environment are why many people elect to live in the countryside.

COMMENT Lavenham Parish Council (Carroll Reeve)

Summary:

Landscape Guidance needs greater status, awareness and consideration and must take into account the major land use which is agricultural together with the associated land quality. The Guidance needs to be drilled down further to be of meaningful use. When this is completed Landscape can be appraised and uses determined. We would respectfully suggest the LNDP as an example to give the vital importance necessary to proper consideration of land use and protection of the landscape which is our valuable heritage.

COMMENT Holton St Mary Parish Council (Ms Dorothy Steeds )

Summary:

Agricultural land should be safeguarded by not allowing building on it. The uncertainty over food sources caused by Brexit may mean that a larger proportion of our food supply will have to be home grown.

COMMENT LAWSHALL PARISH COUNCIL (Mrs Dorothy Griggs)

Summary:

Policy LAW10 of the Lawshall Neighbourhood Plan identifies an "Area of Local Landscape Sensitivity" which has been accepted through the plans examination. Given the quality of the landscape in the Lawshall area, the emerging Local Plan should acknowledge this designation and should not seek to undermine it. Furthermore, in considering Lawshall, the Local Plan must respect the enormous amount of community environmental work that has been delivered in Lawshall, that has led to a demonstrable increase in wildlife and biodiversity in parish.

COMMENT Mr Richard Fletcher

Summary:

The Local Plan ought combine S.L.A.s and L.C.A.s to construct a strong environmental framework for the protection and enhancement of countryside landscape assets.

The proposed OptionL1 seems to suggest that the Council will abandon any consideration of environmental aspects outside the S.L.A.' etc - rather a sad commentary upon the Councils approach in suggesting this strategy.

Option L2 is also worrying, it gives no security of protection of any countryside landscape assets as the L.C.A.s are broad brush, topographically orientated generalised descriptions of countryside types and fail completely to provide analysis on elements that create particularly attractive countryside landscapes.

Pin Mill a conservation area an area of outstanding Natural beauty and a Triple SS & I area currently so neglected is has been turned into an open sewer by the continuous discharge of sewage effluent for 60 years Discharge of this sewage is a criminal offence with unlimited fines and up to 5 years imprisonment. None of the houseboats at Pin Mill have a right to be there and the occupants are guilty of criminal acts. No Local plan can make these unlawful acts lawful.

COMMENT Mr Vic Durrant

Summary:

Chantry Vale has the same mix of landscape designation as Dedham Vale AONB. It is the only other place in Suffolk with the same combination of landscape type designations, totally justifying its local SLA designation. Being on the edge of Ipswich it is an ideal landscape for Recreational use / Nature which would naturally link up with Chantry Park, potential footbridges linking to the Gipping Valley footpath and divert footfall away from the SSSI sites that need protection.
* A Landscape Project Area is mentioned, this appears to be the designation for the landscape overlooking the River Stour as an extension of the Dedham Vale, very similar to the Gipping valley/Sproughton as it extends from Chantry Vale. Accordingly, this designation might be appropriate for Sproughton and the River Valley.

SUPPORT Mr Neil Lister

Summary:

'Retain SLAs, VIOs, AOVRAs. Ensure development enhances landscape character by implementing current Councils Guidance'.

SLAs protect from development/other human influences. Apply them rigorously regarding the Plan and development. Other designations relating to views, recreational and open spaces do/may also, relate to locations and should be fully applied. Protect recognised and cherished views/areas and show optimism, ambition, ability by creating a new attractive District landscape within which new development sits.
Use Landscape Character Assessment (LCA) to pinpoint what makes landscape type areas different and implement future landscape conservation and management to maintain and enhance the District's character and qualities.

COMMENT Fressingfield Parish Council (Mr Alexander Day)

Summary:

Its the strong view of the Parish Council that our District Councils are trusted to act as temporary custodians to our local environment and landscape for future generations. This in mind it is essential that any drivers that may persuade MSDC to compromise this philosophy should be avoided. Consequently it is the Parish Councils view that L1 would be our favoured alternative but with the additional protection offered by L2 whereby every development would be individually scrutinised for the impact it might have. We recognise the additional work this will create but it is essential for protection of our landscape.

COMMENT Mr John Kitson

Summary:

Yes. It could agree:
* to consult specifically on landscape impacts of developments more closely with local parishes at an early stage.
* to apply the policies even-handedly regardless of developers size or financial influence.


The size of the business should not be the criteria, but rather the impact. It is a simple fact that a single house may add to the richness of a landscape whereas an estate could completely destroy it no matter how well it is integrated. It would be inappropriate to enforce landscape policies on small or single builds that have little impact but apply different criteria for a big developer.

Summary:

The Joint Local Plan should address the threat posed to the Districts' tree population by a wide range of tree diseases, and put forward policies for tree protection and commitment to their replacement. Greater commitment to the use and enforcement of landscape conditions as part of the development process should be a high priority for both authorities; this has been sadly lacking in MSDC in recent years.

Summary:

As Wetherden is at the start of the river Gipping, the waterways and surrounding water meadows that regularly flood should be protected from development. The waterways and meadows are a sanctuary for wild animals and fauna including WATER VOLES which are now a protected species due to destruction of their habitat and introduction of American Mink.

COMMENT Hadleigh Society (Margaret Woods)

Summary:

The Local Plan ought not abandon the long recognised and respected designations of Special Landscape Areas, Visually Important Open Spaces and Areas of Visual and Recreational Amenity and then to just rely upon "developer lead" landscape assessments which will always be self fulfilling in promoting their projects as neither Babergh nor Mid Suffolk have the resources to undertake their own Landscape Assessments. Accordingly it is considered that a third Option ought be devised WHICH IS SET OUT IN FULL REPRESENTATION

Development of housing should include space for trees including the larger native species. Planting scheme should include a range of fruit trees or trees that bear berries or seeds than might attract birds. Ponds and permanent wet areas should be established. There is a need to develop in conjunction with the agricultural industry a combined strategy for landscape protection and enhancement.

COMMENT Martyn Levett

Summary:

The proximity of Sproughton/Bramford villages is too easy to conflate and elide. Distinction should be maintained to provide guaranteed delineations between the villages and minimises the risk of encroached development which will lead to the two villages becoming suburbs of Ipswich .
2. The characteristics of valley sides makes a significant contribution to the specific local character of the area.
3. The elevated locations within this landscape character provides substantial views having a wide zone visual impact.
4. Development in this area will have a wide zone visual impact on the east-side of the Gipping valley from Sproughton upstream.
