Core Strategy and Policies DPD Review - Pre-Submission of Main Modifications

13 - CS17 Infrastructure

Representation ID: 24254

Received: 23/11/2015

Respondent: Natural England

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? Not specified

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

We welcome the amendment to ensure that the Council will seek contributions to ensure that the mitigation measures identified in the Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) can be addressed, including for any measures not classified as infrastructure. However, we advise that reference is also made to the mitigation strategy, as this is the document which should specify the detailed mitigation measures that will need to be delivered to ensure development proposed in the plan will not have an adverse effect on any European Protected sites. We therefore advise inserting the additional text to ensure the plan complies with the Habitats Regulations.

Core Strategy and Policies DPD Review - Pre-Submission of Main Modifications

14 - CS17 / New 8.183

Representation ID: 24259

Received: 23/11/2015

Respondent: Natural England

Legally compliant? Not specified

Sound? Not specified

Duty to co-operate? Not specified

Representation Summary:

We are pleased to see a link with the mitigation measures identified in the Habitats Regulations Assessment (HRA) of the Core Strategy. However, the final sentence 'The Council is...' is not sufficient to satisfy the requirements of the Habitats Regulations. There needs to be a commitment in the policy to having a mitigation strategy in place, ideally by the time the plan is adopted or by a specified timescale shortly afterwards. This is necessary to give certainty that the mitigation measures will be delivered to ensure the plan is compliant with the Habitats Regulations and NPPF paragraphs 113 and 118.
