Issues and Options for the Ipswich Local Plan Review

Question 6:

Representation ID: 25038

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Ashfield Land Limited

Representation Summary:

It is not considered appropriate to plan for the 'baseline' scenario (A). If this scenario was to be progressed, the Local Plan is likely to inhibit future growth across the HMA. Subject to further background work, the level of growth proposed in the 'high increase in growth' scenario (C) would be most appropriate to ensure the required levels of housing and economic growth over the plan period. The 'medium increase in growth' scenario (B) should, however, be seen as an absolute minimum. Any growth scenario must also take account of the substantial need for affordable housing across the HMA. A further reasonable uplift (beyond the economic uplift) should be allowed for to meet the identified need for affordable housing.

Question 11:

Representation ID: 25039

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Ashfield Land Limited

Representation Summary:

As set out above, the PPG supports an increase in the total housing provision included in a local plan where it could help deliver the required number of affordable homes. By adopting a more ambitious growth scenario, such as Scenario C, there is more chance that the Local Plan Review will deliver the required level of affordable housing over the plan period.

Question 13:

Representation ID: 25040

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Ashfield Land Limited

Representation Summary:

A combination of the distribution options suggested will be required. There must, however, be recognition that increased development beyond the Ipswich Borough boundary will play a key part in this delivery.
We would advocate a particular focus on providing for additional growth in those areas located around the Ipswich fringe, including those in MidSuffolk, given the direct relationship between such areas.
It's recognised that other options for the distribution of growth will also need to be included in the Local Plan Review. This could include an element of higher-density urban regeneration and the reuse of appropriate employment land.

Question 18:

Representation ID: 25041

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Ashfield Land Limited

Representation Summary:

The Local Plan Review should, in the first instance, focus development that cannot be accommodated within the Borough in those areas closest to the Ipswich urban area. Such areas are more closely aligned to the services, facilities and employment opportunities available within the Ipswich urban area. It may also be appropriate to accommodate lesser levels of growth within the wider HMA.

Question 19:

Representation ID: 25042

Received: 30/10/2017

Respondent: Ashfield Land Limited

Representation Summary:

There will be instances where the reuse of existing employment land for residential development is appropriate. Sufficient flexibility should be provided for sites that are no longer appropriate or required for employment purposes to come forward for alternative uses. This would not on its own be sufficient to meet the levels of growth required across the plan period.
