Preferred Options Core Strategy and Policies Development Plan Document (DPD) Review

Representation ID: 25779

Received: 12/03/2019

Respondent: RSPB

Representation Summary:

At the Issues and Options stage, we made a representation (24740) to include a further line:
k) to incorporate integrated swift-bricks.
We respectfully ask that this is included. Swift-bricks are inexpensive (c£20) and their inclusion will benefit a species that has undergone rapid decline within urban environments in the last 25 years. Such wording is not without precedent. The Hackney proposed submission local plan (Policy LP47d) asks that "all development proposals with an eaves height of 7 metres and above are required to provide nesting boxes for swifts..."

We consider that this additional simple measure will provide further enhancement.

Preferred Options Core Strategy and Policies Development Plan Document (DPD) Review

Representation ID: 25825

Received: 13/03/2019

Respondent: Cardinal Lofts (Mill) Ltd

Representation Summary:

Whilst the Company generally supports the policy, it is noted that Site IP035 is excluded from the 'arc of land', where tall buildings may be appropriate.

This may not be significant/ material, as a 'tall' building is defined as one which is substantially taller than its neighbours or which significantly changes the skyline. In, this respect, there are buildings of between 7 and 15 storeys adjacent to the southern boundary of the site.

If the development of IP035 would be subject to this policy however, then an objection is raised to the exclusion of the site from the arc.

Preferred Options Core Strategy and Policies Development Plan Document (DPD) Review

Representation ID: 25885

Received: 13/03/2019

Respondent: Associated British Ports

Representation Summary:

ABP welcomes IBC's policy on tall buildings consistent with its desire to secure high density development in the town centre and Waterfront (para 6.20 and Policy DM22). As presently drafted, the policy and supporting text do not make it sufficiently clear whether the Island Site is considered appropriate for tall buildings, or whether tall buildings in this location would be appropriate where they meet the criteria of Policy DM15 and where development viability justifies it. ABP requests clarification on this point.

Preferred Options Core Strategy and Policies Development Plan Document (DPD) Review

Representation ID: 26053

Received: 13/03/2019

Respondent: Historic England

Representation Summary:

The policy and supporting text as currently drafted includes a definition by which
The Winerack could be taken as a baseline for defining a tall building in Ipswich.
This is counter to the historic building heights within Ipswich. We also are concerned that the tall building arc identified on the IP-One Policies Map includes a significant area within the setting of grade I Willis Building. We would be happy to discuss this further with you prior to the next iteration of the Plans.
