Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028 Settlement Strategy Infrastructure Delivery Policy SS6: Infrastructure Delivery

  • Comment ID: 2340
I reject the adoption of a CIL scheme and say that it has not been appraised properly and it would dramatically affect development, particularly the Schedule that has so far been proposed. The evidence base in the Infrastructure Delivery Plan is not sound, it does not include anything like what would be required to deliver an Urban Extension, nor is this amount made up elsewhere

The provisions of the policy as a whole are considered reasonable having regard to the emphasis on viability in informing the level of contributions that will be sought from development proposals. However given that in recent years difficult economic circumstances have affected the viability of many proposals and this is likely to continue into the early years of the plan period as the national economy gradually recovers, it is suggested that the policy should explicitly confirm that the Council

It is noted that the Council have prepared an Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) January 2012 (paragraph 4.108) which sets out the likely infrastructure required to ensure sustainable development and demonstrates the deliverability of the strategy's proposals. The policy is broadly supported as it clearly sets out when Section 106 obligations apply. The policy also refers to CIL being charged throughout the district in accordance with the Charging Schedule. A draft charging schedule is expected

This policy is about infrastructure delivery, the Council's aspirations for it, and the mechanisms that it plans to use to ensure its delivery. OBSERVATIONS ON POLICY SS6 INFRASTRUCTURE DELIVERY We've already said that we agree with the Council in it makes good sense to focus development in and around existing urban areas like Castle Cary, where the vast majority of physical, social and community, transport and green infrastructure exists. The Community Infrastructure levy (CIl), it can be re

The Community Infrastructure Levy proposed by the Council at £120 per square metre will radically alter the profitability of development everywhere in South Somerset, yet there has been no sustainability or SEA assessment of what this will do. In fact it is likely it will completely choke development, especially in rural areas, and makes it less likely that there will be economic growth and in-migration

Planning obligations are a proper and recognised part of the planning system which are used to make otherwise unacceptable development acceptable. Para. 204 of the NPPF and Regulation 122 of the Community Infrastructure Regulations 2010, outlines that planning obligations, both in the form of S106 contributions and CIL Charges, should only be sought where they are: * Necessary to make the development acceptable in planning terms; * Directly related to the development; and * Fairly and reason

4. SETTLEMENT STRATEGY Policy SS6 Infrastructure Delivery There may be a requirement to secure funding for strategic flood risk / drainage solutions, as these may provide a more sustainable solution than delivering onsite measures for the strategic sites. This would be informed by the relevant surface water mapping / Strategic Flood Risk Assessment (SFRA) Level 2. Therefore, this subject should be included in the policy under the strategic infrastructure section.

A meeting for developers was held by South Somerset District Council earlier in 2012 to explain the introduction of the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL). The presentation was given by the Council's Infrastructure Delivery Consultants who prefaced their talk with the words "Now the recession is over...". Many of the developers present were more sceptical about the state of the economy, a concern which has sadly translated into fact, with the country now in a double dip recession, and the Ban
