Strategic Distribution Option C

Representation ID: 5297

Received: 15/03/2016

Respondent: Daventry District Council

Representation Summary:

Option C would meet the identified need for the entire Leicester and Leicestershire Housing Market Area (HMA). Making provision for the full need in one location would prevent sites coming forward in other parts of the HMA and could therefore restrict economic growth in other areas. Option C may also have implications for Harborough District (and adjoining authorities) regarding additional housing growth needed to support the increase in employment provision.

Outside of the HMA, Option C would also compete with Daventry International Rail Freight Terminal (DIRFT) and its future expansion (Phase III which is currently under construction). Given the relatively close proximity of Magna Park and DIRFT, it is considered that any additional large scale provision should be focused toward sites with existing rail connections and capacity to expand.
