Agent: Godfrey-Payton

Legally compliant? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

The quoted housing numbers will need to be reviewed in the light of the recent five year housing land calculation methodology statement and the phasing of release will need to allow for the inevitable delay in the provision of housing numbers from the several large strategic sites, upon which the LPA are relying, but which will inevitably lag, thereby resulting in an increased short and medium term housing land need. As a consequence additional short and medium term housing lands will need to be identified.

Harborough Local Plan 2011-2031, Proposed Submission

H1 clause 2 MH

Agent: Godfrey-Payton

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

For reasons set out in separate representations, there is a short term need for additional housing allocations, consequently further consideration should be given to making allocations for housing on two sites owned by my clients. Such an allocation would help to meet the inevitable short term shortfall in housing release whilst also benefitting the wider community via the work of the land owning charity.
1. Approximately 0.33ha of land at the head of Stevens Street.
2. Paddock land extending to 1.33ha immediately to the north of the proposed Airfield Farm access bridge off Leicester Road.

Harborough Local Plan 2011-2031, Proposed Submission

Representation Summary:

The draft plan is defective in that it does not address the future pattern of land use and development of the very prominent and strategically important lands at the town's main northern gateway. This is all that loop of land to the east of the Grand Union Canal , and west of the Leicester Road.
Clearly there is potential to coordinate a pattern of uses on these mainly Brownfield lands that enhance the entrance to the town and at the same time results in all the land being put to high value beneficial uses.

Representation Summary:

My clients object to the entirety of their lands off Northampton Road being identified in the Local Plan as "open space, sport and recreational facilities"
The land as shown on the attached plan extends to 1.8ha however only approximately 1ha has been cultivated and used as allotments in the recent past. For the last 30+ years the vast majority of the area to the north of the access track has remained uncultivated whilst my clients pursued alternative use planning designations.

Representation Summary:

In respect of allotment lands there is a clear distinction between the gross area of land which may contain allotments and the actual net area used for allotments and their immediate ancillary and supporting uses. My clients land at Northampton Road extends to 1.8ha but only about 0.75ha has been used as allotments over the last thirty years or so. Consequently emerging planning policies should, in the event that the land may be developed at some time in the future, only provide for an equivalent replacement of the net allotment area lost to development.
