Question 12 - Site 4 - Land West of Dickens Heath

Representation ID: 9241

Received: 14/03/2019

Respondent: Dickens Heath Parish Council

Representation Summary:

In principle the Parish Council welcomes reduced housing numbers but has objections over site 4 that is strongly opposed by the community.
Scheme would have to respect woodlands, hedgerows & openness which characterises the area. Views dependent on details of the final scheme.
There is clear obligation for the re-provision of permanent sports pitches for local clubs within the area, as existing facilities offer good access, public transport links and parking, to better safeguard the future of the clubs with improved community facilities while retaining a pleasant approach to village.

Concept Masterplan
Welcome reduced house numbers on site 4 and replacement of site 13 by site 26 on reduced scale.

Question 13 - Site 11 -The Green

Representation ID: 9242

Received: 14/03/2019

Respondent: Dickens Heath Parish Council

Representation Summary:

This is outside the parish but impacts on village access but given that planning consents for housing supersedes the previous B1 Offices consent recently granted and is by definition now an allocated site.

Question 14 - Site 12 - Land South of Dog Kennel Lane

Representation ID: 9243

Received: 14/03/2019

Respondent: Dickens Heath Parish Council

Representation Summary:

This is outside the parish but impacts on our key access route and we see significant requirements to attenuate traffic issues, subject to which we see no sound planning objections given the policy criteria not to include site 12 as an allocated site.

Question 15 - Site 26 - Whitlocks End Farm

Representation ID: 9244

Received: 14/03/2019

Respondent: Dickens Heath Parish Council

Representation Summary:

the substitution of the much smaller site 26 at 300 homes to replace the withdrawn site 13 for 600 homes is a very significant improvement.
It reduces our concern over the access onto the heavily congested Tanworth Lane Traffic Islands out of the village by decanting onto a separate road network at Bills Lane. It is also in close pedestrian access to Shirley Rail Station and Bus network and links to adjacent South Shirley estates.
The allocation change is supported with the reservation of a preferred lower housing number provision of 250 homes.

Question 41 - Affordable Housing calculation

Representation ID: 9247

Received: 14/03/2019

Respondent: Dickens Heath Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Oppose change to the unit basis of calculation and consider the existing unit basis at 40% for the affordable element is already exceptionally high.

Support the retention of the unit housing measurement as a clearly understood basis given the system is already required to meet housing size, mix and accommodation standards set down by the local authority.
