Site Selection Methodology

Representation ID: 9266

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: IM Land

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

we raise certain concerns with the methodology of the site selection processes. Mainly, the reliance on the Accessibility Study, and lack of consideration of other sustainable modes of transport, is a failing which needs to be remedied. Further, there would appear to be anomalies within the assessment process and the Council should ensure this is standardised. the Site at Jacobean Lane (submitted to the Council in December 2018), should be included as a preferred option given its positive assessment against the SHELAA and site assessment methodology.

Question 23 - Site 8 - Hampton Road

Representation ID: 9271

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: IM Land

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

this Site contains sports pitch provision which must be mitigated in line with the Revised NPPF (2019). It is also noted that this Site is in a similar location to the Site at Jacobean Lane and enjoys similar defensible boundaries. It is also within the same Green Belt parcel within the Council's Green Belt Assessment. The Council should utilise the same assessment for both sites. The allocation of Site 8 will also reinforce the canal as the edge of the settlement, which would be in line with the Site at Jacobean Lane.

Question 25 - Infrastructure Requirements at Solihull/Mature Suburbs

Representation ID: 9272

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: IM Land

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

the Council states it is encouraging people to use more public transport as well as cycle and walk. While this is a sensible approach, the Council must be pragmatic and ensure that sufficient capacity is created within sites for parking that is required. Just because parking isn't provided does not mean future residents will not own cars and the Council should be mindful of this when attributing numbers to allocated sites

Representation ID: 9275

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: IM Land

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

This Site is an existing industrial estate and the Council should ensure that any loss of employment provision is acceptable. This should be evidenced. Further to this, the Council should ensure that any retained employment provision is not adversely impacted by the creation of a noise-sensitive use close by.
Further to this, given the Site has an industrial use currently, the Council should evidence that the Site is deliverable within the required timeframes and that there are not issues (such as contaminated land) which will prohibit the delivery of the Site or its viability.
