Representation ID: 19312

Received: 12/12/2018

Respondent: Cornerstone Planning Ltd

Representation:

GNLP0475R (Paragraph 5.52 - Settlement Summary Updates - Marlingford & Colton

The text implies that it is the intention that the site be developed for open market housing and thus 'concludes' it to be unsustainable. You should be aware - and your assessment premised on such - that the proposal is for affordable homes/Golf and Country Club staff accommodation. And only limited market housing should viability dictate. We might also explore opportunities for an Entry Level Exception site (Paragraph 71 of the NPPF).

The site is presently 2.85h but it is not intended that all of this be developed. The site size represents the available land and we are open to discussion about how this could be allocated/developed. It might represent a small/medium site (less than 1 hectare) in accordance with paragraph 68 of the NPPF - together with some land for local open space/recreational use.

Please also note that it to the south of Colton, and not north as indicated in the text.

Please refer to my letters of 27 June 2017, 31 July 2017 and 12 March 2018 attached (not all of which - I note - are included in your database), which clarify this and explain in more detail the potential form of development.

Please avoid generalised assessments based on simply looking at a site plan, without properly reviewing the supporting representations, which explains in more detail the intended form/type of development.

We would nevertheless welcome the opportunity to discuss and elaborate further ahead of the Council/s preparing a Draft Plan.

GNLP0476R (Paragraph 5.52 - Settlement Summary Updates - Marlingford & Colton:

The text implies that it is the intention that the site be developed for open market housing and thus 'concludes' it to be unsustainable. You should be aware - and your assessment premised on such - that the proposal is for retirement/holiday home 'village' physically and functionally related to the established Hotel, Golf and Country Club (G&CC) as well as the existing Holiday Apartment complex, together with its other facilities. And only limited market housing should viability dictate.

Granted, it is not an existing settlement but its comprehensive/related services and utilities (including electricity, water and sewage) already exist there and serve to make this far more sustainable than the cursory assessment implies. Current road network capacity constraint can only be regarded as applying to part of Colton Lane, which would in any event be upgraded, with direct access to Honingham Road and beyond. The topography would preclude risk of flooding.

Please refer to my letters of 27 June 2017, 31 July 2017 and 12 March 2018 (not all of which - I note - are included in your database), which clarify this and explain in more detail the potential form of development.
