New Local Plan Options - Sustainability Appraisal Interim Report

Representation ID: 893

Received: 06/10/2015

Respondent: Mr Raymond Godfrey

Representation Summary:

Resilience to climate change - Pages 26/27 - Dunton Bassett.
There is already a water run off problem with the potential Loves Lane development site. After heavy rain, water floods off the field and down the drive of 5 Mount View into the Mount where is does not drain very well. A large sump was built under the drive to reduce the problem but this is not always adequate. Development and climate change would clearly make matters worse and this is not reflected in the report.

Respondent: Historic England

Representation Summary:

We are very concerned that our comments have not been taken forward as we considered the assessment process as set out to be flawed. We are particularly concerned that a small proximity gauge of 50m distance from heritage asset was used under BH1 as a measure of impact. We do not support the use of such means to identify impacts as distance is not a measure of harm. There is also a concern that the assessment omits non-designated heritage assets such as archeology.

Respondent: Natural England

Representation Summary:

We note the conclusions of the Sustainability Appraisal Interim Report in relation to the 9 options for housing locations and employment. Our concerns about the Lutterworth Strategic Development Area (SDA) in view of its potential impact on Misterton Marshes SSSI are as follows:
Natural England would like to raise serious concerns about the potential Strategic Development Area at Lutterworth given its proximity to Misterton Marshes SSSI. It is highly likely that large-scale residential and associated development in this area would have significant hydrological and other impacts on the SSSI, including human footfall, which could damage or destroy the interest features for which it is notified.
