Representations on Preferred Options Local Plan - DM19: Private Amenity Space

Representation ID: 2601

OBJECT Persimmon Homes (Ms Anna Davies)

Summary:

The council should be flexible in rigidly adhering to these standards and have regard to a sites location. Particularly if located within a rural location or where a development seeks to deliver a large quantum of public open space. The standards for apartments should reflect the urban place supplement.

OBJECT Hopkins Homes represented by Pegasus Group (Nicky Parsons)

Summary:

This policy sets out the required standards for private amenity space. It is noted in the Essex Design Guide that authorities are advised to 'be flexible as to how much private garden area' to require in situations where 'for townscape reasons' a larger garden may not be appropriate. This important design consideration does not feature in this policy and it is considered that it is important to recognise this. Policy amendment suggested:
"Variations to these standards must be supported by a strong urban design case that justifies why some units within a development cannot meet the required standards."

OBJECT Bloor Homes Eastern represented by Pegasus Group (Nicky Parsons)

Summary:

It is noted in the Essex Design Guide that authorities are advised to 'be flexible as to how much private garden area' to require in situations where 'for townscape reasons' a larger garden may not be appropriate (see p.79 EDG). This important design consideration does not feature in this policy and it is considered that it is important to recognise this.

To overcome this concern suggest the following sentence be added to the policy:
"Variations to these standards must be supported by a strong urban design case that justifies why some units within a development cannot meet the required standards."
