Draft Local Plan July 2018 A Balanced Strategy for Sustainable Growth in a Constrained District Policy 2 - Housing and Mixed Use Site Allocations

Site ref: HO126 & HO130 Executive Summary These representations, alongside the accompanying specialist reports, have demonstrated that the Regulation 18 Sevenoaks District draft Local Plan (SDLP) is unsound by failing to be positively prepared, justified, effective or consistent with national policy. The Plan could be made sound by having proper regard to paras. 136-138 of the NPPF and the overriding objective of promoting sustainable patterns of development, including channelling development t

Site ref: HO160 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 affordab

We support the priority which SDC has given to making effective use of urban land within existing settlements and other brownfield land. But so far as greenfield sites in the Green Belt go this plan does not constitute a strategic view of how the area should develop. It is based around pragmatically putting together parcels of available land and asserting that infrastructure provision will be made. It does not take a view on where development can best be accommodated in terms of sustainable acce

These representations have been prepared by Iceni Projects on behalf of Generator Knockholt Road Limited ("Generator") relating to land at Knockholt Road, Halstead. A site location plan of our client's landholding is attached at Appendix 2. The site adjoins a sustainable settlement and is surrounded by development on two/three sides. We have assessed the

This statement has been prepared on behalf of Billings Group in response to the Sevenoaks District Council Draft Local Plan Consultation, which runs until 10th September 2018. Our client controls land at Chinhams Farm, West Kingsdown (Council reference HO164) and is promoting it for residential redevelopment as part of a wider Green Belt boundary review. The land was promoted via the earlier 'call for sites' processes and our client has participated, and will continue to participate, as the pl

Site Ref HO112 The Local Plan confirms that SDC has a significant shortfall in housing supply. We are aware that the Council has undertaken detailed urban capacity work and had discussions with neighbouring authorities to accommodate this requirement. In order to fully address the housing need, there is a requirement for to couple high density development within 'urbanised areas' with the release of Green Belt Land. To this end, the sequential approach has been undertaken, and exceptional circu

For further development the location on Four Elms Road is the only logical option. It should be restricted to 100 dwellings and the medical facility should be on the land next to the existing library and Eden Centre. No other location should be considered. The Edenbridge & District War Memorial Hospital should not be included in development proposals unless and until a replacement War Memorial medical facility has been constructed. One important site that has not been mentioned is the derelict L

The site location plan provided with this letter demonstrates the extent of the land owned by Kent Police. Due to the nature of the site as existing, it is submitted that delivery of the site for housing could be achieved over a relatively short period helping to maintain the Council's housing supply targets. Notwithstanding this, a residential use would be compatible with the surrounding residential development to the north and east of the site. Whilst we acknowledge that this area of land ha

"Before dealing with these aspects we wish to correct what appears to be a mistake in the sustainability appraisal. You have recorded its proximity to a public right of way as 10-15km. This, however, is incorrect as a public footpath runs along the northern edge of the site. This was noted by you as a key issue in the initial examination of the site when it was proposed in response to the call for sites." General We thoroughly approve of the way in which the Council has approached the task of d
