Received: 21/10/2015

Representation Summary:

Management of Open Space
Paragraphs 11.3.1 and 11.3.5 state that the adoption of land should be offered to the Parish Council and District Council in the first instance, however no justification for this approach has been provided. If a developer wishes to pursue a management company approach they should be free to do so. This may be important for the viability of a development.

OPEN SPACE STRATEGY: PROVISION FOR OPEN SPACE SPORT AND RECREATION 2015
Thank you for the opportunity to comment on the Council's Draft Open Spaces Strategy. Please see our comments below:
Management of Open Space
Paragraphs 11.3.1 and 11.3.5 state that the adoption of land should be offered to the Parish Council and District Council in the first instance, however no justification for this approach has been provided. If a developer wishes to pursue a management company approach they should be free to do so. This may be important for the viability of a development.
Quantity Provision Standards
We would support the overall approach to addressing sufficiency of open space provision (paragraph 13.5.4-5), however it is not clear at what stage this advice is offered. Under paragraph 15.12 (5th bullet point) a commitment is set out to ensure that open space provision is considered early in the development process and in development briefs. Yet at 27.4.4 the proposed amended guidance for developers `Provision for Open Space Sport and Recreation', notes that "HDC will use the most up to date information concerning current open space provision to undertake a bespoke analysis on behalf of the development industry as planning applications are made." This is not early enough in the development process. We need this information during the pre-application process in order to properly inform both Masterplan design and heads of agreement for the Section 106 agreement. The Strategy should set out a commitment to provide this information at the formal pre-application stage and where no information is offered it should be assumed that no provision for open space, sport or recreation is required.

How the polciy operates

The density figure of 35 dwellings per ha is too high. A more realistic figure of 20 dwellings per ha should be used
