Robert Hitchins Ltd and Harrow… Please see enclosed submission.

Whilst supportive of the new Climate Change and energy measures proposed, we would advocate that a consistent approach is adopted nationally across the West of England to provide developers with greater certainty. Any new policy measures need to be based upon a proportionate evidence base which is deemed to be ‘sound’ and this should include an assessment of their impact upon viability; both on an individual site level and on a whole-Plan basis to ensure that other policy aspirations are not unduly impacted (e.g. affordable housing).

Hannah Saunders - Dodington Pa… Pages 137 to 199 – Policies:

• Members reviewed this section on Strategic/Non-Strategic Policies.

• They were pleased to see the new Strategic Policy regarding how they are going to tackle Climate Change introduced.

• They note that there aren’t currently draft working policies for many of these strategic policies – so expect to be consulted again once these are available.

• With regards to the Non-Strategic Policies they agreed with the inclusion of the 6 new policies…. in particular the Urban Living, Digital Connectivity and Broadband and Energy Management in new Development.

• As with the strategic policies they noted that there aren’t currently draft working policies for many of the non-strategic policies – so expect to be consulted again in the future.

Waddeton Park Ltd - Land at Hi… 62. Waddeton Park Ltd broadly supports the range and scope of policies that are presented, but in the context of the submissions above, there is a need for policies on Climate Change to recognise the role the Spatial Strategy will play in addressing the declared emergency.

63. We would like to raise concerns about the complexity and prescriptive nature of some policies that could have a counter-productive effect on innovation and choice for the development industry and construction techniques.

64. It is also important that each of the policies are underpinned by a clear evidence base, do not give rise to duplication and form part of a whole Plan viability appraisal to ensure they support positive growth delivery.

Ivywell Capital (IC) 6.2 For example, Paragraphs 143 - 147 of the NPPF provide a clear and concise approach to managing development in the Green Belt. There is no need for a policy which either repeats, or worse, reinterprets these paragraphs. 17 May 2021 15:38
Bristol and England Properties… We would suggest that the Local Plan should look to avoid the duplication and repetition of policies already set out at a national level.
