Representation Summary:

Misterton with Walcote Parish Council is concerned that the consultation process has not been used to inform a number of policies proposed in the Harborough Local plan. This does not encourage participation, as the public has had no opportunity to express its views concerning these policies and indeed it seems that some new policies are entirely at odds with the opinions expressed in the earlier consultation.

Representation ID: 5531

Respondent: MISTERTON WITH WALCOTE Parish Council

Legally compliant? No

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? No

Representation Summary:

The allocation is contrary to Objective 2 (p17) and Policy BE2.2.c as it will not 'create new jobs that meet local employment needs' or 'increase employment opportunities for local residents'. This is because in the whole of Harborough District there were only 1200 people registered unemployment from April 2016 - March 2017 (https://www.nomisweb.co.uk/reports/lmp/la/1946157143/report.aspx#tabempunemp) a rate of 2.6%, well below 4.2% for the East Midlands and 4.7% nationally.

Representation Summary:

Already 75% of Magna Park workforce comes from outside the district. There's insufficient unmet employment need to reduce this figure, thus commuting will increase substantially. Magna Park Growth Sensitivity Survey concludes the allocation of 700000m² extra warehousing will generate 9689 extra jobs. Of these 6488 commuting outside Harborough District, whilst changing the assumptions used will see 7962 extra commuters from beyond district boundaries. Even if workforce is hired in accordance with policyBE2.2.d, there will still be a substantial increase in commuting. We also question HDC's ability to ensure compliance with this policy or to take action if it's breached.

Magna Park Growth Sensitivity Survey concludes the allocation of 700 000m² of extra warehousing will generate 9689 extra jobs. Of these, the best case scenario sees 6488 commuting from outside Harborough District, whilst changing the assumptions used will see 7962 extra commuters from beyond district boundaries. Even if the workforce is hired in accordance with policy BE2.2.d, there will still be a substantial increase in commuting. We also question Harborough Council's ability to ensure compliance with this policy or to take action if it is breached. Does the Council have the powers to influence employment decisions?

Representation Summary:

The allocation of land to the south of the A4304 opens land further to the south to development pressure as there is no natural or landscape barrier distinguishing the allocated site from its surroundings. Therefore it is not in accordance with policy GD8d.
