Option 7: Scraptoft / Thurnby SDA and Kibworth SDA

Representation ID: 1139

Received: 20/10/2015

Respondent: Barratt Homes/David Wilson Homes

Representation Summary:

The proposed scale of development in Kibworth (1200 dwellings) is endorsed although concern is expressed over their location in Kibworth and delivery, in the form of 2 potential SDAs. Smaller scale development on the edge of The Kibworths (ie schemes of approximately 100 dwellings) appears to be ruled out under this particular Option which could be more sustainable and deliverable.

Option 8: Scraptoft / Thurnby SDA and Lutterworth SDA

Representation ID: 1140

Received: 20/10/2015

Respondent: Barratt Homes/David Wilson Homes

Representation Summary:

No provision is made in Kibworth under this particular Option which is considered unsound given the size of the settlement (The Kibworths), its role within the hierarchy and the level of facilities and services therein.

Housing

Representation ID: 1154

Received: 20/10/2015

Respondent: Barratt Homes/David Wilson Homes

Representation Summary:

A wide range (0-1200 dwellings) is outlined, However, concern is expressed over Options 3, 4, 6 and 8 which effectively rule out any additional housing (over and above existing commitments) in Kibworth up to 2031 !

Options 5, 7 and 9 are welcomed, in terms of scale of provision, although concern is expressed over the intended location of the SDA and delivery ruling out smaller scale development on the edge of Kibworth.

Option 2 is too low and does not reflect Kibworth's sustainability credentials. Neither does Option 1, which is welcomed, but should be treated as a minimum.level of additional provision.
