Main Modifications Policy SS5: Delivering New Housing Growth Content

  • Comment ID: 104
The Local Plan Inspector requested South Somerset District Council to make appropriate modifications to Policy SS5 of the Local Plan to: "improve clarity regarding housing delivery in Crewkerne". This has not been achieved through the modifications proposed. The modifications do not focus on securing delivery of the existing Key Site allocation, which will be the main source of growth for the town. The Key Site delivery is overlooked with the focus of the policy modifications encouraging develop

I object to this policy because it fails to comply with the NPPF, particularly paragraph 50 which promotes self-build now designated Custom Build housing. SSDC planning officers advise they have no means of acknowledging or accommodating Government directives to promote the provision of land for Custom Build constructions. No policy exists within the Main Modifications that complies with NPPF directives, NPPG interpretation, the Localism Act 2011 or any ministerial and central Government promo

I STRONGLY OBJECT to the Main Modification MM12 on the grounds that it is not compliant with national policy (NPPF) and that it fails to add sufficient clarity as requested by the Local Plan Inspector's preliminary findings [Ref A] and highlighted in my consultation response to the original Main Modification [Ref B], and representations at the local Plan Examination and Resumed Hearings [Refs C, D & E] .  This aspect remains unsound and contrary to NPPF Para 15 which states plans should have "c

I object to the wording of the main modifications, which refer to Wincanton, as proposed, as they do not give sufficient clarity as requested by the inspector. SS5 Delivery of new housing growth. It has been agreed that Wincanton has had an over supply of housing in relation to its sustainability as a Market Town. Should there be a change, and provision for housing be needed, this will be addressed through a specific local plan amendment. There will also be a full review of employment and housi

The concerns expressed in our previous representations that Growth Levels in Wincanton are too low, were clearly accepted by the Inspector iven the request within The Preliminary Findings for 'an early review of housing provision at Wincanton'. With reference to the proposed modification at Page 53, Policy SS5, we support the 'permissive approach' to consideration of 'directions of growth' at the Market Towns. However, given that Wincanton does not have a residential based 'Direction of Growth'

We write on behalf of our client Hopkins Developments Limited in connection with Main Modification 12 which relates to a change to policy SS5. We have reviewed the proposed change and do not believe that in its current form it addresses our substantial concerns in relation to the effective embargo on housing development in Wincanton, which has been based on no objectively assessed evidence. We will not reiterate these representations because they have been clearly articulated previously. In re

In its representations at the Examination, Abbey Manor Group (AMG) commented upon the extent to which the policy objectives provided by the 'directions of growth' approach satisfied paragraph 154 of the NPPF. In summary, Paragraph 154 of the NPPF requires Local Plans to set out the opportunities for development and clear policies on what will and will not be permitted and where and in doing so, include only policies that provide a clear indication of how a decision maker should react to a devel

These representations are submitted on behalf of Gleeson Developments Ltd which has land interests in the Crewkerne area.  Gleeson has participated in both public examination sessions and made representations on the November 2013 proposed modifications in respect of Policy SS5. Gleeson notes that Main Modification 12 now proposes to further modify Policy SS5 to ensure that Crewkerne is subject to the same 'permissive approach' as the towns and rural centres prior to the adoption of the Site All

Please include a "Preferred area for housing growth" in the Wincanton element of the plan. The preferred area of housing growth should be the area adjacent New Barns Farm between Lawrence Hill and West Hill and the area between Common Road and Devonish Lane.

Finally Wincanton should have a 5 year monitorium from any large scale new housing following the allocation being front loaded in the first half of the plan period.
