The AONB notes Policy EP4 in connection with the conversion and re-use of buildings in the countryside and is concerned that business uses may not necessarily be sympathetic to AONB objectives. The AONB has, for example, had to object to the location of transport businesses and waste re-processing activities as re-uses of rural buildings on the grounds that such activities increase traffic in remote rural areas, require workers to commute into the AONB and are fundamentally urban businesses that

Policy EP4 Conversion and Re-use of Buildings in the Countryside The Commissioners support the re-use of rural buildings that are no longer suitable for their original purpose, and generally support the sequential approach set out in Policy EP4. It should be noted, however, that Policy EC12 of PPS4 supports economic development as the preferred re-use in 'usual' circumstances, and recognises that residential conversions may be more appropriate in certain locations and for some types of buildings

6. Further the mix of types of building may need much further thought. If substantial numbers of retired people are to be accommodated the number of affordable units may be less, but the number of units for easy living may well be more. It is possible that sufficient weight has not been given to one local asset, the large number of unoccupied buildings. Though difficult to harness to the needs of working age people, many retired or near retiring aged people coming to this area might be deligh

Policy EP4 Conversion or re-use of Buildings in the Countryside Just as the proposed re-use should have regard for internationally designated sites, it is suggested that it should have regard nationally designated areas such as the AONB. The AONB is supportive of proposals where they do not adversely impact upon the objectives of the Management Plan and have particular consideration for landscape and visual impact, impacts upon tranquillity and associated traffic impacts.

EP4 - the addition of the issue of extensions? - 'The buildings are a structurally sound and capable of conversion without demolition or extension'.? Para 9.47 These are not both Council documents, one is published by English Heritage and the other by SSDC.

It is recommended that the words "structurally sound and capable of conversion without demolition" should be clearly defined. There have been many cases of so called conversions being in effect complete rebuilds.

Policy EP4 Conversion and re-use of buildings in the countryside should consider the flood risk and not proposed more vulnerable uses than existing.

Policy EP4: This policy does not make a strong enough case for the transport aspects of this activity. It is suggested that an additional bullet point should be included as follows: 'There is no adverse impact on the transport network in terms of the nature and volume of traffic.'

· We assume that EP3 has to be followed first before this policy is applied and feel that should e made clear. · Derelict ex farm sites and other types of old brown field sites like coal yards should, we feel, be encouraged to be developed for business uses as long as this is linked to the end use being a sustainable rural business which will maintain or restore a high quality environment. · With regard to the last bullet point that reads: "Site is in a sustainable location for land use propo

Policy EP4 Conversion or Re-use of Buildings in the Countryside the following criteria will need to be satisfied: - The proposed re-use has regard for protected wildlife species and their habitats, in particular internationally designated sites and Sites of Special Scientific Interest. In practice designated sites are rarely affected by such proposals to the point that I don't think they're worth mentioning here, plus they would also be covered by other national policy (PPS9) and legislation.
