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

Representation ID: 25695

Received: 12/03/2019

Respondent: On behalf of East of England Co-Operative Society

Representation Summary:

The protection of the Boss Hall Business Park is generally supported. However, the policy is currently considered to be too restrictive.

Paragraph 9.32.7 defines appropriate employment-generating sui generis uses and excludes any sui-generis use that includes retain and leisure as another other than an ancillary use. Retail and leisure uses are employment generating in themselves and can assist in underpinning the vitality and attractiveness of employment areas, and so the policy is too restrictive.

The Site allocations DPD makes reference to a new retail allocation at Boss Hall Business Park.

Strict long-term protection for only B-Class uses would be inappropriate.

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

Representation ID: 25720

Received: 12/03/2019

Respondent: AquiGen

Representation Summary:

As NPPF paragraph 120 relates to allocated land and recommends the use of the no reasonable prospect test, to ensure consistency with the NPPF, we recommend Policy DM32 is amended to allow the test to be applied to defined Employment Area land. This will ensure the Plan is consistent with national guidance and adequately flexible to deal with changing market signals and needs. This is particularly important given the surplus allocation position compared with need as identified in our assessment.

There is ambiguity regarding paragraphs 9.32.2 and 9.32.4 in relation to the "no reasonable prospect test" and employment area land.

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

Representation ID: 25997

Received: 13/03/2019

Respondent: Suffolk County Council

Representation Summary:

Paragraph 9.32.1, in clarifying that waste uses can come forward on employment allocations when compatible with adjacent uses, is also helpful in respect of relocating the Ipswich Household Waste Recycling Centre. It is also consistent with emerging policy WP3 of the SMWLP, which clarifies that land allocated for B2 and B8 uses are appropriate employment allocations, subject to emerging policy GP4 which considers the impacts of proposals on the local environment.
