* Chevening Parish Council is concerned that the focus of flood risk is concentrated on the proposed development and ignores the potential impact on the surrounding area. In what circumstances would the District Council permit a development which created "unavoidable negative impacts on health, well being and safety"? These should not be considered

Policy 18 Air Quality (Para. 8.5): Identifying road traffic as the main contributor to poor air quality is regrettably not followed by achievable measures to alleviate it since, barring cycling, the possibly huge increases in population will bring very substantially more vehicles onto the same road network and energy-efficient public transport is beyond the reach of the LPA to provide. In urban areas in particular the issue of air quality is therefore a primary consideration in testing the susta

We welcome SDC's recognition of the importance of climate change and its effects on summer temperatures and rainfall. It was a surprise to us to discover that many of the practical ways in which climate change can be mitigated can no longer be influenced through the planning process. They are now controlled within building regulations. This includes provision of solar panels, energy efficiency etc. We are very concerned about air quality issues. It is heartless for us as a community to consider

Policy No. 18 I support the policy generally, but the aspiration for safe cycle routes is utterly unrealistic, given likely funding. The wholly inadequate 'cart tracks' highlighted in my comments under Policy No. 7, which make up much of the rural connectivity of the district, do not lend themselves to the provision of cycle lanes and their nature is such that use without such cycle lanes is not for the faint heated, at best. Equally, the lack of footways along rural roads, coupled with footpath

2.31 Croudace are generally supportive of Draft Policy 18 in so far that it seeks to support healthy living opportunities, air quality improvements, avoiding developing in higher risk Flood Zones, etc. We would however suggest that the policy as drafted runs to three pages in length (pages 99 ¨C 101) and could benefit from being disaggregated to ensure a clear and understandable policy (set of policies) is delivered. 2.32 The land at Brittains Lane could be allocated and delivered in accord

Policy 18 - in particular the Health Impact Assessment required and the provisions for small scale renewable energy and decentralised energy schemes. A great concern is that very small schemes, though the traffic they generate would have only a small incremental impact on air quality would nonetheless impact adversely on it.

In paragraph 8.5, the word ¡°cited¡± should read ¡°sited¡±. 41 In Policy 18, given that betting shops are listed as a type of development requiring a health impact assessment, there is no need to also include them as an example of ¡°any other uses that could have a detrimental impact on physical or mental health¡±.

Chapter 8 Para 8.5 Should this read "…AQMAs which are sited alongside…"? Para 8.6 In the second line, add "schools" as it is one of the most significant contributors to traffic congestion and therefore to poor air quality. This should read: "…(e.g. schools, stations…". Para 8.6 The location of developments which generate high numbers of additional car journeys is critical. To reflect this, the second sentence should read: "Measures to improve air quality include reducing the need to travel by

In paragraph 8.2 you have omitted the Wellfield area of Hartley which elsewhere you have said is an area high on the index of deprivation. It is essential that new builds are as green in design as possible. In particular I think the cost of solar panels has fallen enough for their installation on new builds to become the norm. I suggest an additional sentence added to paragraph 7 "Provision of at least 1kW of solar panels should be standard." I understand 1kW panels cost around £1,500 [https://

Support the protection of Green Belt open spaces, trees and woodland to help counter air pollution, climate change, and to provide locally accessible spaces to enhance physical and mental health. People will use local areas rather than travel (with associated pollution) to more distant facilities. many areas are too hilly to enable cycling by any but the fittest, and they sometimes have to dismount and walk!
