Representation ID: 4180

Received: 29/10/2015

Respondent: William Davis Limited

Representation Summary:

In order to meet 475 new dwellings per annum we support greater focus on the delivery of housing in rural settlement.
Harborough as a rural district has a number of large rural centres and selected rural villages with a good range of existing services and facilities, providing sustainable settlements. Focusing development in these settlements will help sustain local facilities. A wider distribution of the housing requirment would also increase the rate of deliveruy with more sites contributiing to completions, rather than being limited to on or two SDAs. Including as many sites as possible in the Local Plan would help boost housing land supply and increase the likelihood of delivery. We favour options 1, 2, 4 and 5.

Q4. Do you have any comments on the proposed criteria-based policy to replace Limits to Development?

Representation ID: 4191

Received: 29/10/2015

Respondent: William Davis Limited

Representation Summary:

The new criteria based policy approach to determining applications is supported. The existing Limits to Development policy has the potential to be confusing as Neighbourhood Plans could propose different settlement limits to those identified in the Local Plan. Conversely it is not sensible to delegate boundary definition to Neighbourhood Plans as this could cause a policy vacuum if Neighbourhood Plans are delayed or fail to come forward. The new cirteria based approach would allow greater flexibility and be more responsive to local circumstances.

Q7. Do you have any comments on the list of employment sites proposed to be retained and protected?

Representation ID: 4204

Received: 29/10/2015

Respondent: William Davis Limited

Representation Summary:

William Davis supports the suggested retention and protection of the Airfield Farm Business Park in Market Harborough. We also support encouraging delivery of outstanding of the outstanding employment commitments, including some from the 2001 Local Plan as listed in Appendix E. The Airfield Business Park is correctly listed in this category. The site is also treated as an existing commitment in the North West Market Harborough SDA Master Plan.
An outline plannning application has just been submitted for the part of the site which has not yet been built on. Assuming planning permission is granted, and the commitment us made to retain and protect and encourage its development as noted above, there will be no need for the site to be allocated as it will be an existing commitment.
