Draft Local Plan July 2018 Protecting, Conserving and Enhancing Green Belt, Landscape and the Natural Environment Protecting our Countryside

The Arup green belt study should be respected at MX51 excluded. Although new development in the greenbelt should respect our "unique landscapes" this should not be taken to mean by developers that the housing target can be best achieved by very low density development in the greenbelt as this uses more greenfield greenbelt and increases travel distances. Pleas for bungalows for the elderly in the greenbelt should be listened to with caution. They restrict affordability, waste land and are not n

In response to the local plan I would raise the following concern with respect to the sites H0120 and H0177. * Green belt should be protected whenever there are alternative options that are considered viable. Development of land which includes the ancient woodland of Great Brittains Wood will cause significant harm to flora and fauna as well as taking away from a precious amenity for the town. This feels contrary to the purpose of the area being designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beau

Chiddingstone Parish Council believes that the Green Belt should be protected, the only exception would be to allow a mixed development of affordable housing and open market housing allowable under Policy 10.

Policy 2 - Housing and Mixed-Use Allocations The policy fails to identify suitable Green Belt sites on the edge of settlements that could be brought forward for development without causing any harm to the function of the Green Belt as a whole. There are many such sites, but no meaningful analysis at the appropriate, local, site-specific level of such opportunities has been carried out. The Council makes clear in paragraph 1.8 of the Local Plan that it is not seeking to meet the housing need wi

There needs to be somewhat stronger emphasis on the importance of the Green Belt in ensuring that development proposals do not close gaps between existing settlements.

I fully agree with the SDC approach. We must preserve wherever possible the countryside for future generations.

"The most important attribute of the Green Belt is its openness and the fundamental aim of Green Belt policy is to keep land permanently open. The 2017 study assessing the District's Green Belt finds that all areas continue to perform against at least one of the five purposes of Green Belt making its continued designation appropriate unless 'exceptional circumstances' are clearly identified." As with my previous comments on this consultation document, the term "exceptional circumstances" is far

I like this part of the Local plan very much. It is so important that we protect the Green Belt and areas of outstanding natural beauty: not only do these areas have a unique and rich character that make Sevenoaks such a nice place to live, they also tie the community together by providing a place where families can go on walks or where friends can meet each other walking their dogs. I do think the wording could be stronger however. For instance consider the words 'where possible' at the end of

Any development authorised on greenbelt using the exceptional circumstances justification must be all, or vastly, affordable housing. There can be no justification in developing greenbelt land to provide executive homes or self build plots.
