Draft Local Plan July 2018 Ensuring new development respects local distinctiveness Outdoor Lighting Policy 15 - Design Principles

There is a High Weald AONB Design Guide in preparation which seeks to enable housing developments in the AONB to reflect High Weald characteristics. It is requested that this Guide be referenced in section 8 of this policy. I support the reference to AONBs in the 'Outdoor Lighting' section as the High Weald has intrinsically dark night skies which need to be protected.

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

With respect to the Edenbridge sites, particularly H0189, MX44 and MX51, it should be acknowledged that development could affect the setting of the High Weald AONB and this should be taken into account in the decision on whether to allocate and in the design of any future allocation. Setting affects are not just visual but also include impacts on habitats and watercourses connecting into the High Weald such as the River Eden and its environs.
