New Local Plan Options - Sustainability Appraisal Interim Report
Representation ID: 2769
Respondent: Historic England
We are extremely concerned that BH2 is depicted as 'character' in all of the assessments, whereas on the methodology (table 14.1 of the main document), BH2 relates to the setting of heritage assets. We are even more concerned that for all entries, 'No Data' is inputted. This is a significant flaw of the SA. In order to deliver a sound and legally compliant plan, there is a need to properly assess site allocations in relation to their impact on the significance of heritage assets, including impact on setting as part of the plan-making process.
