On behalf of the Powell Property Partnership, please find attached a representations in respect of the current draft Local Plan consultation. As this promotes the addition of a new site, we have also appended a 'call for sites' submission form. The site 2.1.1 The site is located approximately 1 mile south of Eynsford, situated on the west side of Lullingstone Lane. It is reasonably served by the strategic road network with the M20 and M25 being to the north. 2.1.2 The site is situated toward th

There should be a section in the executive summary on the effects the proposals will have on the parking and usage of cars and other vehicles in the district. Page 5 says the Government has instructed that Sevenoaks should build 14,000 homes Does this mean that there will be about 30,000 more cars in the district? Unfortunately, no evaluation seems to have been made of the impact of the additional use of cars and other vehicles for the planning period. This is a major omission Already numerous

* Historic Environment The executive summary is deficient in that it does not have a separate entry entitled "Looking after our Historic Environment" in a similar mode to "Looking after our Wildlife". The Historic Environment of our district should have a separate entry and not be a small part of item 7. It should read "As part of the Local Plan we need to protect the historic environment. It is important to minimise the effect of development on all historic sites by at least checking proposals

The main thesis of this draft plan is to increase the provision of housing and does not consider the effect that the developments in housing will have on such other aspects as highways, health and education

The section entitled "Sevenoaks Vision 2015 – 2035" should include a separate consideration on the green belt. It should be noted that the environment of Hartley has suffered from several nibbles at the green belt as can be seen by examining the statutory maps which have been produced for early development plans. One has to ask whether previous releases of green belt land for housing has been only permitted in exceptional circumstances and whether these releases have had the desired outcome? Is

The Draft SDC Local Plan seeks to deliver a number of new homes that falls below what is required to meet objectively assessed needs. As a minimum this is would be 1,258 dwellings. However, if a 20% buffer were to be applied, as is considered justified in this instance, SDC would have a shortfall against the Standard Methodology of at least 3,552 homes, assuming that all identified sites are allocated. This is a considerable shortfall and will only compound the issue of affordability and lack of

HO255 Dear Sirs, We are acting for the owners of the above site which has been included under your Call for Sites Scheme under ref. H0255. We note that it has not been included within the Draft Local Plan as it was felt that it was in an unsuitable location for development and site specific issues cannot be overcome. We would ask you to reconsider this site as there are a number of important aspects which should be taken into consideration. The Site Deliverability Assessment states the SHELA

Regardless of the above, draft Policy 1 (A Balanced Strategy for Growth in a Constrained District) seeks to establish the approach for directing new development and growth within the District. In line with the NPPF, the policy prioritises development within the boundaries of existing town settlements and through the re-use of previously developed brownfield land. However, the policy notes that "the supplyof 'brownfield' land is limited and therefore this is not a solution in itself." Draft Poli

Sevenoaks Town. I think that the proposals for an large increase in population are based on incorrect assumptions about growth and what can be accommodated by the existing infra structure, both physical and social, without destabilising current communities. Transport is a major issue, the present A25 is almost at gridlock for large parts of the day now. The longer trains are full and the tracks too. The proposed extra 1100 homes with perhaps 2-3000 extra people could not be managed on our roa

I wasnt able to understand the online commentary process, but hope that I can email you my comments directly. As a resident in the Montreal Park area, my family and I are rather concerned about some of the development plans in the area, especially the sites off Britains Lane. We agree with the assessment that the sites HO177 and HO304 are unsuitable for development but wonder why site HO120 is not similarly classified as it is subject to most of the same constraints? The land is on a strongly p
