Draft Local Plan - Supplementary Consultation

Local Housing Need

Representation ID: 9450

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Hampton Road Developments Ltd

Agent: Savills

Representation Summary:

We do not believe that there are exceptional circumstances that would justify the Council using an alternative
approach to the new standard methodology as set out.
We note the Council's intention to respond to the potential additional support towards the Greater Birmingham
Housing Market Area ('HMA') will be dealt with at the Regulation 19 Pre-Submission stage.

Site Selection Methodology

Representation ID: 9451

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Hampton Road Developments Ltd

Agent: Savills

Representation Summary:

Generally agree with the approach taken to the site selection process at Hampton Road, but scoring of sites 214 and 215 is inconsistent in step 1. Both sites are located adjacent to site 213 but have different scores.
Whilst the further away the site is from the urban area, footpaths and roads, the site may become decreasingly accessible, but accessibility increases closer to the canal. A score of 6 rather than 9 is more appropriate and consistent with the score attributed to site 213.

Question 22 - Infrastructure Requirements at Knowle, Dorridge and Bentley Health

Representation ID: 9452

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Hampton Road Developments Ltd

Agent: Savills

Representation Summary:

We have reviewed the infrastructure requirements set out in paragraphs 222 - 233 and consider that this represents a reasonable list of measures that need to be addressed to support future development. A further detailed review of these requirements is anticipated at the planning application stage.

Question 23 - Site 8 - Hampton Road

Representation ID: 9453

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Hampton Road Developments Ltd

Agent: Savills

Representation Summary:

Support the inclusion of Hampton Road as an allocation. However, parts of the site identified as "potential area of development subject to heritage assessment" should also be included. The Council's Heritage Assessment should consider the technical work done in support of the site. Impact on the setting of Grimshaw Hall can be mitigated.
Acknowledged the Council's concerns over the impact of the development on the Green Belt, in particular the visual impact of the sports facilities. Consider the inclusion of green infrastructure would provide effective mitigation.
Unreasonable to describe accessibility to public transport as "currently low".

Question 40 - Affordable Housing Approach

Representation ID: 9454

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Hampton Road Developments Ltd

Agent: Savills

Representation Summary:

We consider this approach to be unconventional and could lead to a greater than 50% of housing units being provided for affordable housing, where the mix for private includes more 2 and 4 bed houses than is required
for affordable. This could negatively affect the overall site mix. We object to this approach until further evidence can be provided to justify a habitable room/floor space requirement. We consider that where the Council seeks to pursue an unconventional approach and a departure from a % of overall dwellings, then a clear justification should be provided.
