Representation 232 on Preferred Options Local Plan by Mr Simon Hall

Support / Object: COMMENT
Document Link: Preferred Options Local Plan - Structure of the Plan
Representation: The presumption in favour of sustainable development cites three elements to sustainability - economic, social and environmental and refers to the gains that can be achieved. There is little focus on gains that can be achieved in the draft Local Plan.

A definition of sustainability should be included.

Monitoring reports on Local Plan issues will be published annually. CBC does not have resources to do this unless investment is made in appropriately qualified personnel. The loose drafting of the targets and indicators in S9 suggests this is not going to be a really forensic exercise. What is the intention?
