  • Comment ID: 2176
Sustainable Development 2.3 With respect to Policy SD1 – Sustainable Development is supported.

2.2 The NPPF sets out the Government's planning policies for England. Central to this guidance is the clear direction that there should be a presumption in favour of sustainable development. Paragraph 14 makes it clear that sustainable development: "should be seen as a golden thread running through both plan-making and decision taking". 2.3 It also clearly identifies that there are three dimensions to sustainable development, which include: Economic, Social and Environmental Roles. It further

Having considered the Proposed Submission Local Plan in its entirety, Abbey Manor Group are concerned that, notwithstanding Policy SD1 as presently drafted, the Local Plan's policy framework represents a risk to the delivery of new development required to meet the future needs of the District. This would conflict with the National Planning Policy Framework which seeks local planning policies that support and facilitate sustainable development. It is imperative that new housing is delivered over

It is a requirement of the NPPF that Local Plans should be prepared with the objective of contributing to the achievement of sustainable development (paragraph 151). The Planning Inspectorate has suggested that all Local Plans should contain a policy which clearly sets out this objective and have prepared a model policy for this purpose. Policy SD1 has been based on the Model Policy but does not replicate it exactly. Whilst the model policy is just that – a model, it has been carefully pr

We made a number of observations during the process of developing the Local Plan 2006 to 2028 and are resubmitting these observations (see below) as we find that the plan has not sufficiently responded to the challenges of developing a low carbon generating local sustainable community. The following are observations regarding the above plan from Transition Langport which is a non-profit organisation that aims to improve the living standards for all residents of Langport and the surrounding area

Support A clear recognition of the importance of the historic environment to S Somerset's economic, social and environmental well-being is noted (Policy SDI). The Plan highlights S Somerset's broad historic character, the variety and significance of its heritage assets and tourism attractions that provide a positive and fertile environment for economic investment, and the basis for achieving sustainable development.

2.1 The Government has published the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). It came into immediate effect for plan-making and development management decisions and replaces all previous Planning Policy Guidance notes, and Planning Policy Statements. 2.2 There is a commitment to ensuring the planning system supports economic recovery and growth. This commitment should be reinforced as a result of the recently announced 'double dip recession' in the economy. In the 2011 Budget, local councils

The Trust supports this policy in principle but is of the view that the proposed Yeovil Major Urban Extension is in fundamental conflict with it in respect of the following material considerations. (a) Loss of best and most versatile agricultural land contrary to NPPF Para 112 'Local planning authorities should take into account the economic and other benefits of the best and most versatile agricultural land. Where significant development of agricultural land is demonstrated to be necessary, lo
