Representations on Preferred Options Local Plan - DM13: Domestic Development

Representation ID: 2997

COMMENT Environment Agency (Mr Martin Barrell)

Summary:

We note that for replacement dwellings in the countryside, the rebuild should be "on a one-for-one basis and the property to be demolished is a permanent lawful dwelling". This will have potential flood risk benefits as there have been past cases
where uninhabitable former dwellings on plots with high flood risk have had applications for rebuilds where there had been no residential occupancy of the former property for years.

COMMENT Historic England -East of England (Ms N Gates)

Summary:

DM13: Domestic development - residential alterations, extensions and outbuildings

Whilst we welcome the commitment to design for replacement dwellings in the countryside, we also recommend that the presumption to retain buildings which are heritage assets should be referenced. As it is drafted, the policy also would allow the replacement of a building which makes a positive contribution to a rural conservation area. This should be clarified.

COMMENT mrs jane black

Summary:

This policy only seems to deal with extensions etc. A policy is needed on infill in line with the current Borough supplementary policy on backfill and infill. This should also seek to protect the parking space of any host property.

Representation ID: 736

COMMENT Mr R E COX

Summary:

There is currently a clear mismatch between statement 7.60 and planning approvals. Many small dwellings especially single storey bungalows are developed into large two storey houses. Stated requirements for low cost starter properties or smaller properties suitable for down-sizing are not being progressed.
