Draft Local Plan July 2018 Executive Summary 1. Finding Places for New Homes

  • Comment ID: DLPP421

Finding places for New Homes is clearly an important element this draft Local Plan. This Executive Summary sets the context for how the Local Plan will attempt to meet this task. Importantly the Executive Summary should make it clear that whilst existing settlements will be expected to be the centres for such growth, that growth should be proportional to the size, character and services available at that settlement. Proposed wording change - insert after '.....previously developed land.' 'propo

Paragraph 118 d) of the 2018 NPPF states that Local Authorities should 'support the development of under-utilised land and buildings,especially if this would help to meet identified needs for housing where land supply is constrained and available sites could be used more effectively'. This should be reflected in this paragraph to be consistent with national policy. Proposed change - insert after '....previously developed land.' 'and under-utilised land and buildings.'.

We should not be building on areas of AONB and the Green Belt, which was set out in the 2017 Conservative Manifesto where they pledged to " * Maintain the existing strong protections on designated land like the Green Belt, National Parks and Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty Michael Fallon has subsequently written to the Government to take this into consideration within Sevenoaks where the target put on the council is unrealistic in an are that is majority Green belt and AONB I do not belie

How have this government arrived a the required housing for Sevenoaks District? Is this an arbitrary number produced by dividing need by area across the UK?. I do not see the requirement for this level of housing so would need convincing hat government is correct. A survey of where the millenials wish to live would be a better result.

I object to the amount of proposed building in the Halstead, Knockholt and Polhil area. A large part of this is green belt and the number of homes being proposed is excessive and will be damaging to the area. I understand there is housing pressure everywhere but it is the massive numbers that are being proposed that I object to. The proposed development of the site that was Broke Hill golf course, is first class green belt with public paths crossing it. Whilst the plan is professionally prepare

In relation to housing development in Edenbridge. Before this is viable the roads need updating, there is a proposal for at least 600 new homes at present with possibly 300 more. The roads are barely coping with the existing traffic, what infrastructure & road improvements are the council & developers putting in place?

To whom it may concern As a resident of borough green living on the A 25 i would like to object to the planning of the proposed garden city as we have enough traffic passing our bungalow at present ( more like the M 25 ) .The Doctors surgery is packed now and Maidstone Hospital is almost full every day with waiting times getting longer for appointments . Pembury just the same ,so putting another 6000 people and at least 3000 more cars in an all ready conjested area is total nonsense . The train

To me this is not an appropriate definition of exceptional circumstances. The vast majority of local authorities are facing a situation where the targets set by government substantially exceed plans; by definition SDC's situation is not exceptional. Nor are housing targets are an absolute requirement. In his statement to Parliament on 14 September 2017 Sajid Javid noted, "[Housing targets] should not be mistaken for a hard and fast target..."You need to go further in setting out what specificall

I object to the name of this consultation - It is all about squeezing in more buildings for extra people to live, so let's be honest and call it that: THE PLAN FOR INCREASING AVAILABLE HOMES. A local plan should be about so much more.
