Harborough Local Plan 2011-2031, Proposed Submission

BE1 clause 1

Representation ID: 7129

Received: 17/11/2017

Respondent: Tarmac Trading Ltd

Agent: Heaton Planning

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Promotion of a portion of a Tarmac landholding (the site) at Gibbet Lane, Shawell, for future employment use within the plan period. The site is appropriate for employment uses, namely B1 (Business) and B2 (General Industrial) and non-strategic Storage and Distribution (B8), at the cessation of mineral operations at Shawell Quarry. Consider that the site has been under-scored in SA. The application of the methodology used by Council to assess sites' potential for employment allocation is not considered to be consistent or sound. The evidence used to inform the employment allocations' site selection is erroneous and inconsistent. See attachment.

GD9 Minerals Safeguarding Areas

Representation ID: 7144

Received: 17/11/2017

Respondent: Tarmac Trading Ltd

Agent: Heaton Planning

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

It is important at District-level to identify mineral safeguarding areas to ensure that mineral resources are not unnecessarily sterilised by non-minerals development. Minerals safeguarding areas should be included within the Local Plan for parcels of land which have been allocated for sand and gravel working within the latest draft of the Leicestershire MWLP. There is potential for our client's interests at Husbands Bosworth and Shawell to be impacted upon by non-minerals development that would threaten allocated sites in the MWLP. We support inclusion of GD9 but it relies on the Leicestershire County Council Minerals Local Plan for the identification of mineral safeguarding areas.
