Draft Local Plan - Supplementary Consultation

Question 30 - Site 10 - West of Meriden

Representation ID: 8785

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Rainier Developments Ltd - Land at Widney Manor Road

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

Whilst we have no objection to Site 10 (west of Meriden), we understand that this site is being promoted by McCarthy and Stone, and we question whether these 100 dwellings are C2 or C3. If this site is intended to be delivered as C2, what contribution does this make towards meeting the Council's overall housing requirement and what contribution, if any, will it make towards overall affordable housing requirement?

Question 34 - Washed Over Green Belt Settlements for Potential Removal

Representation ID: 8786

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Rainier Developments Ltd - Land at Widney Manor Road

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

We consider that the revisions to the Green Belt boundary around Widney Manor Road should go further, with the new boundary located east of our Client's site along up to the Local Nature Reserve, as set out in our answer to question 2. We consider that given the nature of the site, and the contribution the affordable-led development will make to the Council's overall affordable housing requirements, this constitutes the exceptional circumstances required to justify this change to the Green Belt.

Question 38 - Amber Sites

Representation ID: 8789

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Rainier Developments Ltd - Land at Widney Manor Road

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

There appear to be inconsistencies in the way that the amber sites have been assessed, e.g. sites 49 and 328 were assessed as amber within the Appendix D to the report to 17th January 2019 Cabinet meeting, which authorised the consultation document; however, the Site Assessment document itself now concludes that these sites are 'green'. This should be clarified.
In terms of the site to the rear of 114 to 118 Widney Manor Road (ref A7), we would query whether there is evidence to demonstrate this site's deliverability. Instead, we would recommend the allocation of our Client's site LAND AT WIDNEY MANOR ROAD: SITE REFERENCE 407, which is available, achievable and deliverable now to bring forward affordable housing within the first five years of the draft Plan.

Question 39 - Red Sites

Representation ID: 8790

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Rainier Developments Ltd - Land at Widney Manor Road

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

LAND AT WIDNEY MANOR ROAD: SITE REFERENCE 407 should be included as a 'green' site. Object it has been assessed as 'red'. We do not agree with the conclusion that it will have 'severe or widespread impacts that are not outweighed by the benefits of the proposal'. The site is in one of the most sustainable locations in the Borough. There are no constraints which can't be mitigated. Has strong defensible green belt boundaries. Would achieve 100% affordable housing.

Question 40 - Affordable Housing Approach

Representation ID: 8792

Received: 15/03/2019

Respondent: Rainier Developments Ltd - Land at Widney Manor Road

Agent: Barton Willmore Planning

Representation Summary:

No. This approach would cause uncertainty for developers and the Council and is not likely to work in practice. It would not be clear how much affordable housing will be delivered through the draft Plan. If the Council allocate sufficient sites which have proportionate evidence regarding their viability and deliverability, this would be the best way of addressing the delivery of much-needed affordable housing. Our Client's site LAND AT WIDNEY MANOR ROAD: SITE REFERENCE 407 can deliver affordable dwellings on a suitable site in a sensitive and well-designed manner.
