Support / Object: OBJECT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Sustainable Settlements, Dedham and Dedham Heath, SS6: Dedham Heath Housing Sites
Representation: Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty- the proposal is contray to the NPPF(March 2012) and Core Strategy and Development Policies

Original submission

Dear Sirs


I was very surprised to see the 2 sites within the AONB.

I am not involved in planning but I would have thought these proposals were contrary to numerous policies, at a quick glance:-

With regard to the site North of Long Road East.

The proposal is contrary to the NPPF(March 2012) particularly Paragraph 115 and Core Strategy Policies SD1,H1,UR2,ENV1,ENV2 and Development Polices DP1,DP12 of the Colchester Borough Council Local Development Framework(LDF) by virtue of its harm to the countryside.

In addition DP22 indicates that in ANOB only development that makes a positive contribution to landscape character and DP14 identifies the need to protect the setting of listed buildings.

Clearly this particular site does not justify any sort of exception.

If this site was allowed I can visualise numerous sites within the ANOB which have previously been refused permission being resurrected using this particular case to support the application.

Your sincerely,

Richard Watts
