Dear Harborough District Council,

Thank you for the opportunity to comment on your proposed Local Plan. Please see below the consultation response on behalf of Rugby Borough Council, which is given at Officer level.


Comments on the proposed plan:

It is not clear from the plan or supporting evidence how the impact of the proposals on the highway network and transport outside of the Leicestershire boundary has been considered and what the likely effects will be. The Jacobs Preliminary Impact Assessment 2016 appears to exclude areas outside of Leicestershire, even though there are main routes adjoining or crossing into neighbouring counties (in Rugby Borough's case the A5 and A426, which are near to the Magna Park and Lutterworth proposals), and analysis is not apparent in other documents. It is queried whether sufficient consultation has taken place with Warwickshire County Council Highways Authority to ensure the local plan's implications on cross-county matters have been taken into account.

In addition to the effect on the connected road network, it should be considered how the proposals for growth in Rugby Borough's proposed Local Plan (currently being examined by the Planning Inspectorate) have been taken into account. Further consultation with Warwickshire County Council is encouraged.

It is unclear in the Jacobs Preliminary Transport Assessment 2016 how the figures used in the assessment relate to the local plan targets. Clarification should be given as to how the total amount of growth proposed in the plan has been tested in the assessment and appropriate mitigation identified.

The August 2017 Magna Park Employment Growth Sensitivity Study is welcome, although it is queried whether the position of the other HMA authorities on employment and unmet housing need has been agreed between appropriate authorities and if the Duty to Co-operate has been satisfied. It should be ensured that the draw of employment from surrounding areas as a result of the expansion of Magna Park has been fully considered and also factored in by other authorities, in order to ensure there would not be over provision in the market area as a whole. It is acknowledged that within the plan that the expansion of Magna Park will result in an increase to the overall housing requirement from 532 to 557 dwellings per annum to align the housing with the employment growth and that this will also meet some unmet need from elsewhere in the HMA. However, it is not clear the position of unmet need across the HMA as it is also noted within the plan that Leicester City Council have stated they will have unmet housing need but that the extent is not yet established.

Overall, Harborough District Council has progressed its local plan, and this progress is noted and welcomed. It should be ensured that the impacts of the proposals on cross boundary matters have been fully considered, and that due regard has been given to Rugby Borough's proposed growth. Matters of employment and housing on Duty to Co-operate should be agreed between relevant authorities to ensure overall need has been properly accounted for and to avoid over-provision.
