Planning Obligations SPD

Question 9: Do you have any comments to make about Local Policy?

Representation ID: 537

Received: 06/09/2015

Respondent: Billesdon Parish Council

Representation Summary:

The policy should make greater reference to Neighbourhood Development Plans

Full text:

Billesdon Parish Council finds that the proposed approach to planning obligations is reasonable and, as a result, does not have specific comments in the detail in the consultation document. However, the Parish Council is concerned that there is not sufficient reference to those communities that have formally adopted a Neighbourhood Development Plan, as we have in Billesdon. The document should state that Neighbourhood Development Plans will set the approach to planning obligations and the District Council's guidance will apply where the Neighbourhood Development Plan does not have sufficient detail or is silent on the matter. For example, the Plan for Billesdon sets the requirement for affordable housing so this should be met. However, it does not state the mix of housing to be provided so the DC's guidance should be used when agreeing the mix.

Given that Billesdon has its own Neighbourhood Development Plan we would expect any commuted sum generated in the Parish to be spent within the Parish
