Received: 29/10/2015

Option 2: Core Strategy Distribution

Representation ID: 4207

Received: 29/10/2015

Respondent: Bruton Knowles

Representation Summary:

Although favouring Option 3, our clients (Trustees of the Bowden Settlement) also recognise that without adequate growth Rural Settlements will
die and therefore also see merit in Option 2 which attempts to strike a
balance between Urban and Rural growth.

Potential Strategic Development Areas

Representation ID: 4208

Received: 29/10/2015

Respondent: Bruton Knowles

Representation Summary:

The growth of strategic development areas is not favoured as it is considered
the proposed sites provide an imbalance of new dwellings when compared to
existing dwellings within each settlement.

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

Representation ID: 4218

Received: 29/10/2015

Respondent: Bruton Knowles

Representation Summary:

This policy is welcomed as it provides a more sophisticated tool to control inappropriate development in an Area of Separation, rather than a blanket bar on
development.
It is suggested that point 10 is amended to give officers and members a great degree of flexibility as follows:
'8. Does not result in an unacceptable reduction in the physical and visual separation of settlements in order to prevent the coalescence of settlements'.

Option G1

Representation ID: 4220

Received: 29/10/2015

Respondent: Bruton Knowles

Representation Summary:

Option G1 is recommended to prevent the coalescence between Great Bowden and Market Harborough. This option provides a greater degree of sophistication and flexibility, whilst retaining control when assessing development within the Area of Separation and will be compliant with NPPF guidance.
All three of my clients' sites (Parcel A to the north east of Market Harborough; Parcel B to the south west of Great Bowden; and Parcel C to the south of Great Bowden) could contribute to the District's housing need over the plan period, and all three sites should be considered deliverable not just developable.
