Sustainability Appraisal - Second Interim SA Report Appraising Options for the Provision of Strategic Distribution Growth (Feb 2016)

Q1. Do you have any comments to make on the Second Interim Sustainability Appraisal Report - Appraising Options for Strategic Distribution growth (Feb 2016)?

Representation ID: 5135

Received: 09/03/2016

Respondent: LUTTERWORTH TOWN COUNCIL Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Lutterworth Town Council is strongly of the opinion that a strategic overview is required as the appraisal options currently underplay the impact of traffic on Lutterworth and the surrounding villages. There are claims within the report as to the scale and volume of traffic that are not substantiated. A decision concerning these options should be determined at a higher level due to the large scales of development involved.
There is not any discussion of road improvements with Options B or C and their impact on Lutterworth and the surrounding villages.

Strategic Distribution Option A

Representation ID: 5139

Received: 09/03/2016

Respondent: LUTTERWORTH TOWN COUNCIL Parish Council

Representation Summary:

There is reference on page 16: Communities that development would improve job opportunities and access to employment within Harborough, in particular Lutterworth. The unemployment rate in Lutterworth is however less than 0.5 per cent and less than 6% of employees are drawn from the population of Lutterworth according to statistics recently provided by IDI Gazeley Ltd.
There are contradictory references to accessibility contained within the report. Lutterworth Town Council does not agree that transport is considered 'reasonable' as it is currently too infrequent and indirect.
Lutterworth's existing status as an Air Quality Management Area is seemingly ignored throughout the report.

Strategic Distribution Option B

Representation ID: 5140

Received: 09/03/2016

Respondent: LUTTERWORTH TOWN COUNCIL Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Option B is most definitely not considered suitable in Lutterworth Town Council's opinion due to its potential to impact dramatically on the area of separation between Lutterworth / Magna Park / Bitteswell.
Section 4 Appraisal Findings: Economy reports that jobs at Magna Park will be generated across a range of occupations, including a proportion of high quality jobs that would benefit the local and wider workforce in the area. The report fails to mention however that the likely development of Symmetry Park would detrimentally impact the existing business of Semelab.
