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

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

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

We are writing to oppose the developments proposed for the above two sites. We understand the pressure on housing and am not opposed to new build even on green belt in certain circumstances. But: - these sites include high performing agricultural green belt land: we agree with the principle that this should not be developed unless there are special circumstances. I have seen no such special circumstances nor special mitigations such as extensive community investments as part of these plans. -

Site ref: MX19 The local authority need to allocate more land for housing. By virtue of the fact that 93% of the district is Green Belt, much of this is going to have to be identified and allocated through Green Belt land release. The strategy, as presented in the draft Local Plan has failed to identify sufficient land to meet the housing requirement over the plan period, and for reasons detailed within this letter, there are good grounds for doubting whether all sites will come forward and del

General Comments on the proposed Sevenoaks District Draft Local Plan. Fawkham is a small rural settlement comprising of 220 houses and just over 500 people and it is classed by Sevenoaks District Council as a hamlet. It also contains the conservation area of Baldwins Green. Given this classification, the Council is concerned that Sevenoaks District Council have seen the need to include 4 developments in the Sevenoaks District Draft Local Plan all of which have potentially severe negative impact
