Built Environment. No reference to wider cultural heritage and historic environment. Notable omission being the lack of recognition of Harborough's rich and well preserved rural heritage and historic landscape, including substantial and well preserved areas of ridge and furrow (e.g. Historic England's 'Priority Townships': Gumley, Hallaton, Hungarton, Mowsley, Owston & Newbold, Saddington, and Thorpe Langton.

Economic Growth comments:
There is the need to provide for mixed sustainable communities to help enable community capacity to be created so that communities are able to support themselves and vulnerable individuals and families within them. This concept is embraced within the Leicestershire Communities Strategy (2014). It is suggested this ambition is incorporated in the objectives for the new Local Plan.

Representation Summary:

Archaeology Comments:
Detailed appraisal of the heritage implications of each of the main housing options are required. At best superficial consideration of the issues have been included in the submitted documentation and supporting Sustainability Appraisal.There appears to be an advantage to focusing development on a limited number of sites, thus reducing the impact of development across the borough and to a large number of historic settlements. However the chosen locations will be much more significantly affected. It is therefore essential that thorough consideration is given to the assessment of heritage impacts to evaluate the sustainability of the respective options.

Economic Growth comments:
Regarding general employment provision it is noted that Options 5 to 9 would result in a higher level of employment provision than evidence indicates is required in the district; however, as acknowledged, the longer lead times for the Strategic Development Areas, coupled with the delivery of employment land often towards the end of the delivery of a Strategic Development Area means this approach is supported.
