Received: 29/10/2015

Respondent: Equality And Human Rights Commission

Representation Summary:

Local Councils and other public authorities have obligations under the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) in the Equality Act 2010 to consider the effect of their policies and decisions on people sharing particular protected characteristics. We provide advice for public authorities on how to apply the PSED, which is an on-going legal obligation and must be complied with as part of the planning process. Thus, the PSED is the mechanism through which public authorities involved in the planning process should consider the potential for planning proposals to have an impact on equality for different groups of people.

New Local Plan Options

Representation ID: 4623

Received: 28/10/2015

Respondent: RES ltd

Representation Summary:

Renewable Energy Systems Ltd (RES) wishes to make representations on the draft Harborough District Council Local Plan, in light of the DCLG announcement of 18th June 2015 regarding renewable energy policies. The amended planning guidance places increased importance on the identification of sites suitable for wind energy. The drafting, consultation and process of adoption of the Harborough District Council Core Strategy and Local Plan to date, has not been on the basis of areas of search or identification of areas suitable for wind energy development. RES has identified potential onshore wind energy areas to the North and also to the South-West of Market Harborough and would like to have the opportunity to promote these areas for site allocation in the local plan.

New Local Plan Options

Representation ID: 4961

Received: 30/10/2015

Respondent: Mr John Martin

Representation Summary:

Points raised in summary:
- No mention of the number of people that will be requiring homes, jobs etc;
- Why has it taken so long to generate a Local Plan?;
- Developers can appeal against HDC decisions and the preparation of a Local Plan will not change this; many of the appeals are against the time constraints being exceeded and not on the grounds of the developer's plans.
- Neighbourhood Plan's in preparation will need alteration to comply with the Local Plan. Why can't the Local Plan be complete before the Neighbourhood Plans?
- The period of six weeks allowed to examine such a large volume of data is inadequate.

Representation Summary:

Para 14.
The absence of an up to date, robust, assessment of the districts employment land needs and the absence of any evident collaboration with other Leicestershire and wider regional authorities (on HDC's prospective contribution to the strategic distribution needs of the area for additional strategic distribution floor-space) puts at risk HDC's chances of meeting the ambitious timescale set out in the LDS.

Representation Summary:

Para 15
Tests of what constitute sustainable development extend to social and economic as well as environmental gains - not just adverse environmental impacts. HDC is obliged to purse gains across all three and to do so jointly and simultaneously.NPPF sets a much higher bar than the OCP suggests which is important because the OCP sets the context for, and has the effect of colouring the responses of the public to the OCP proposals, in terms of the quantitative evidence for strategic distribution employment space and the Strategic Distribution Options A-C.
