Harborough Local Plan 2011-2031, Proposed Submission

GD6 Clause 1a

Representation ID: 7548

Received: 17/11/2017

Respondent: Trustees of the Bowden Settlement

Agent: Mr. David Smart

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Land off Burnmill Road (land rear of Top yard Farm) is well suited to a residential allocation and whilst the SHLAA (May 2016) states development could occur within a 6-10 year time frame, the site is available now.

Comments provided in the Area of Separation Review 2017 are noted, however the west of Unit 3 is very different to the east of Unit 3, and as such the representation site will not contribute to the coalescence between Market Harborough and Great Bowden, as it is already self-contained/screened.

The site should be removed from the Area of Separation and allocated for residential development.

The representation concerns land off Burnmill Road (land rear of Top Yard Farm), Great Bowden. The site boundary is attached.

The site is contained within unit 3 in the Area of Separation Review 2017. The
review found that unit three forms part of a primary contribution to the Area of
Separation. However it is considered that the west of unit 3 is different to the east,
and notably the representation site is self-contained and screened by mature trees,
thick vegetation and existing residential development. We submit that the site should be removed from the Area of Separation.

Given the sustainable location, the site would make an appropriate residential allocation. The entire site is in single ownership and is immediately deliverable, and could be brought forward in the next 5 years.

Harborough Local Plan 2011-2031, Proposed Submission

H1 Opening sentence

Representation ID: 7550

Received: 17/11/2017

Respondent: Trustees of the Bowden Settlement

Agent: Mr. David Smart

Legally compliant? Yes

Sound? No

Duty to co-operate? Yes

Representation Summary:

Land off Burnmill Road (land to rear of Top Yard Farm) is immediately adjacent to Great Bowden's settlement boundary and considered sustainable.

Whilst the SHLAA identifies the site is considered potentially suitable over the next 6
to 10 years, it is available and deliverable now. Our clients have demonstrated
through the instruction of a technical transport note that there are suitable accesses
available.

We submit that the site should be removed from the Area of Separation and allocated for residential development, with a high quality design complementary to adjacent housing being a requirement of the Authority.

Harborough Local Plan 2011-2031, Proposed Submission

GD6 Clause 1a

Representation ID: 7555

Received: 16/11/2017

Respondent: Trustees of the Bowden Settlement

Agent: Mr. David Smart

Representation Summary:

We support the removal of the land from the Area of Separation.

We suggest given the site's location and my client's control of number 54 The Ridgeway, the site would make an appropriate residential allocation to fill the unallocated numbers within the district.

Full text:

See attached documents.

Land to the Rear of The Ridgeway (see attached map) is well suited to a residential allocation and development could occur within a 1-5 year time frame. The April 2017 Area of Separation Review confirms that coalescence will not be compromised given the position and context of the site and the site could potentially accommodate circa 45 dwellings at a standard density of 30 units per hectare.

We support the removal of the land from the Area of Separation, and suggest given the site's location and my client's control of number 54 The Ridgeway, the site would make an appropriate residential allocation to fill the unallocated numbers within the district.

The entire site is in single ownership and is immediately deliverable, and this is recognised by the 2016 SHLAA which identifies the land could be brought forward in the next 5 years.

Harborough Local Plan 2011-2031, Proposed Submission

Representation Summary:

Land off Main Street, Great Bowden should be removed from the Area of Separation. Comments provided in the Area of Separation Review 2017 confirm that part of the site provides only a secondary benefit to the Area of Separation. It is considered that all of the representation site should only provide limited benefit due to the screening of the site.

We suggest that the site should be removed from the defined Area of Separation, and allocated for a Village Green-style small residential development of up to 15 dwellings.

The representation concerns land off Main Street, Great Bowden. The site boundary is shown in attachment.

This site should be removed from the Area of Separation, as the Area of Separation Review found that the westerly section of the representation site presented only a secondary benefit to the Area of Separation. It is considered that all of the representation site should only provide limited benefit due to the screening of the site.

Given the sustainable location, the site would make an appropriate residential allocation. The entire site is in single ownership and is immediately deliverable, and
could be brought forward in the next 5 years. The landowners believe that a high
quality development, based on the concept of a Village Green would be in-keeping
with the characteristics of Great Bowden and would be complementary to its unique
character and style. Any such scheme would be widely consulted on with local
stakeholders, and would be designed in accordance with the Neighbourhood Plan.

The representation site is well suited to a residential allocation and whilst the SHLAA (May 2016) states development could occur within a 6-10 year time frame, the site is available now.

Our client would be prepared to offer some of the site for use as a village green to replace those historic greens within the village which have been lost. We believe that the site could become the new "Middle Green" in Great Bowden.

The site is suitable for a small residential allocation of up to 15 dwellings and the representation site will not contribute to the coalescence between Market Harborough and Great Bowden, because the site is self-contained and screened.
