South Downs Local Plan: Preferred Options Towards a Sustainable Future Housing Policy SD23: Housing

  • Comment ID: 2683
  • Status: Accepted
Strategic Housing Market Assessment (SHMA) It is noted that the SHMA concludes that "The closest approximation of Objectively Assessed Need in the SDNP is for between 416 and 454 homes per year". The Plan is providing for 4,596 net new dwellings over 18 years equating to only 255 homes per annum. It is unclear from the information available how the figure of 255 dwellings per annum was derived or whether it is supported by evidence and justified. Further clarification is therefore required. T

Gaps Paragraph 7.33 of the Joint Core Strategy states that the precise boundaries for Gaps will be identified in a future Local Plan. The evidence base supporting this policy and the supporting text identifies and proposes a new Gap in the National Park Area. It is unclear how or if this is being addressed in the SDNP Plan.

Gypsy, Travellers and Travelling Showpeople It is noted that you are asking for help in identifying land for the Gypsy, Traveller and Travelling Showpeople Site Assessment. This is a joint study between Winchester City Council, East Hampshire District Council and the SDNPA and is nearing its completion, currently in draft format. It is unclear how a call for sites at this stage will impact on the study. EHDC require the study to be drawn to a conclusion in the very near future.

Conclusion   The considerable efforts in consolidating a large amount of planning policy, from 15 local planning authorities, into one planning document are recognised and the West Dean Estate would like to congratulate SDNPA on achieving this. EJF would also like to thank SDNPA fro the opportunity to comment on and influence this important emerging planning policy. Finally, should offers want to meet with EJF and its representatives to discuss this letter, we would be more than happy to do so

South Downs Local Plan: Preferred Options Core Policies Major Development in the South Downs National Park Policy SD3: Major Development in the South Downs National Park

  • Comment ID: 2527
  • Status: Accepted
The Council is interested in the fact that major development is not defined within the document in terms of the context of the South Downs National Park, although it is acknowledged that defining major development in regards to protected landscapes is particularly difficult with little guidance available. This is an issue that we are currently considering in relation to development within the High Weald AONB and would welcome discussion on this issue.

Re the Lewis development. This is a lovely market town so I would ask that any development is entirely sympathetic to the character of the town and enhances not detracts.

'ensure that development outside of the National Park does not have a detrimental impact on its setting or otherwise prejudice the achievement of the National Park purposes' his point is strongly supported for the following reasons: * In many locations the boundary line is freely crossed by wildlife, views and people enjoying the countryside. * * In many locations the same special qualities that are valued within the Park boundary are also present and valued on the other side of the boundary

5.23 It may sometimes be the case that the activities outside the boundary may have an impact within it, in such cases the relevant authorities will be required to take account of the National Park's purposes and duty. Please see the comments made in support of 4.5 and 4.45 above, and SD5:4. For the reasons given, this statement needs to be expanded to clarify that this issue, and the need to have regard to the Park's purposes and duty as expressed in the special qualities, applies not merely t
