Request for 3 Chart View, Kemsing to be removed from Green Belt I would like to make a written representation to request that our property and plot be removed from Green Belt as part of the District Local Plan changes. The map below shows our site in the context of the village setting: We believe that it would be appropriate to remove our site from Green Belt for the following reasons: • We are in a cul-de-sac of ten near-identical houses, none of which (except ours) are in Green Belt. • We

In the section on 'Extensions and replacement buildings in the Green Belt' we suggest that, in the last sentence the word "materially" be either omitted altogether or defined. Otherwise there will be endless scope for argument on applications and appeal as to what are the limits of materiality We suggest that after paragraph a. under "Basements in the Green Belt" the word "and" is added, since otherwise developers are likely to argue that a. and b. are alternatives.

In the planning period there is very limited need for encroachment into the green belt. Beyond what is proposed above, which fulfils Edenbridge's quota in the district's development, there should be no further loss of green belt. The proposals for redesignating green belt land in Edenbridge for housing, are being promoted on the suggestion that there is some justifying community gain from the designation of a small amount of land for a medical facility. However, Edenbridge does have two existi

In the SGBA the Tyrolese site falls within 21.6ha Parcel No. 47. The parcel has a score of 'moderate' against the NPPF Green Belt purposes. However, the sub-area in the north of the Parcel (RA-14), the boundary of which closely aligns with the Tyrolese site, is recognised to perform a much lesser Green Belt role against the NPPG Green Belt purposes and is found to perform 'weakly' if considered in isolation. As such, the SGBA recommends that "Parcel 47 meets the NPPF purposes strongly, but there

As previously discussed, Paragraph 145 of the NPPF states that a local planning authority should regard the construction of new buildings as inappropriate in the Green Belt with exceptions to this including limited infilling or the partial or complete redevelopment of previously developed land whether redundant or in continuing use (excluding temporary buildings), which would: Not have a greater impact on the openness of the Green Belt than the existing development; or Not cause substan

Policy 4 Development in the Green Belt This policy provides clear guidance on development which would and would not be permitted within the green belt. As the Green Belt and AONB designations largely overlap, the policy should also include clear cross-reference to Policy 3 (Landscape and AONB). With reference to Policy 6 (Safeguarding Places for Wildlife and Nature), opportunities should be sought to enhance land within the green belt, including improvements in the delivery of ecosystem servic

* Halstead Parish council do not support any development within the Green Belt besides that of rural exception schemes. HPC would like to see this policy cover large developments within the Green Belt and provide a definition for 'Exceptional Circumstances'.

The emerging policy is significantly more restrictive than the current policies within the Allocations DPD. We object to the deletion of the additional 'outbuilding' policy which has functioned well since its introduction. Modern properties require a degree of external storage space for land maintenance and for storage of bicycles if sustainable forms of transport are to be encourage. No justification has been provided for the omission of this policy

The District is highly constrained in terms of Green Belt with 93% of the District area being within the Green Belt 4.2 As allowed for in the NPPF Green Belt boundaries should only be altered in exceptional circumstances, through the preparation or review of the Local Plan. The need to significantly boost the supply of housing and meet the housing needs of the District represents an 'exceptional circumstance'. 4.3 As evidenced within the Local Plan Green Belt boundaries need to be amended in ord

Tonbridge and Malling Borough Council welcomes the decision by Sevenoaks District Council to consider the release of land from the Green Belt in order to try and help meet the identified need. However it is not clear exactly which sites are under consideration or how their potential yield has been calculated. The table on pages 25-30 suggests 12 sites are under consideration for release from the Green Belt, however the table on page 33 only lists 9 potential sites. It is also unclear how the pot
