Question 9: Do you support, object, or have any comments relating to the approach to Housing set out in the Delivery Statement?

Representation ID: 21175

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Hopkins Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

Support for proposal to allocate sites only where there is a reasonable prospect of delivery.

Support for delivery plans, but important that the potential for unforeseen material changes to occur, which could impact delivery.

Support for 9% buffer.

Full text:

The proposal to only allocate housing sites where there is a reasonable prospect of delivery can be evidenced is fully supported, and accords with paragraph 67 of the NPPF.

The requirement for delivery plans to be submitted with planning applications is supported, but it is important to recognise that there may be unforeseen material changes in circumstances which could impact the delivery of an allocation, and consequently, a degree of flexibility will be required to ensure viable and sustainable development.

The Plan’s proposal to accommodate 9% more homes than “need” indicates is supported; this buffer will help ensure that the supply and delivery of housing is maintained.

Question 11: Do you support, object, or have any comments relating to the approach to Infrastructure set out in the Delivery Statement?

Representation ID: 21177

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Hopkins Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

Whilst there is support, in principle, for the proposed approach to infrastructure, particularly the need for key stakeholders to work collaboratively, the Delivery Statement should make it clear that infrastructure requirements will be proportionate to each development and based on clear assessments of need. Failure to do this will result in certain developments being rendered unviable and, therefore, undeliverable.

Question 13: Do you agree with the proposed Settlement Hierarchy and the proposed distribution of housing within the hierarchy?

Representation ID: 21179

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Hopkins Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

The proposed Settlement Hierarchy is supported; the Norwich Urban Area, including the fringe parishes such as Sprowston, is clearly the most sustainable location for growth, given the range of services available, and it is therefore appropriate to focus the majority of growth, including new allocations, here.

Question 17: Do you support, object or wish to comment on the approach to Infrastructure?

Representation ID: 21183

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Hopkins Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

The need to support sustainable growth through the provision of infrastructure improvements, such as schools and health centres, is, in principle, supported. However, the policy should recognise that infrastructure provision must be proportionate to each development, to mitigate the impacts of the specific development, based on a local need and must not undermine delivery.

Representation ID: 21186

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Hopkins Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

The proposal for continued lobbying of statutory providers for the timely delivery of improvements to strategic infrastructure, such as the energy supply network, is welcomed and supported.

The Consortium are committed to continued engagement with NCC in relation to the potential to accommodate a secondary school on site GNLP0132. Further clarification is required in relation to funding mechanisms and the relationship with CIL to ensure that the implications for viability are fully understood and mitigated at Plan-making stage.

The proposal for continued lobbying of statutory providers for the timely delivery of improvements to strategic infrastructure, such as the energy supply network, is welcomed and supported. This will be critical to ensuring the timely delivery of the planned growth.

In relation to education provision, the Consortium are committed to continued engagement with Norfolk County Council in relation to the potential to accommodate a secondary school on site GNLP0132. Further clarification is required in relation to funding mechanisms, and the inter-relationship with the CIL regime, to ensure that implications for viability are fully understood and mitigated at Plan-making stage. This is essential to ensure that the policy framework is drafted to appropriately reflect these considerations, and ensure that strategic sites are not over-burdened with the delivery of strategic infrastructure beyond that directly required by the development.

Question 25: Do you support, object or have any comments relating to the approach to on-site and local infrastructure, services and facilities?

Representation ID: 21187

Received: 16/03/2020

Respondent: Hopkins Homes, Persimmon Homes and Taylor Wimpey

Agent: Bidwells

Representation:

The need to support sustainable growth through the provision of on-site and local infrastructure improvements is, in principle, supported. However, the policy should recognise that infrastructure provision must be proportionate to each development, based on a local need and not undermine delivery.

Consideration should be given to the potential for the larger strategic-scale housing sites (i.e. sites of 1000+ dwellings) to be CIL exempt, or subject to a bespoke reduced CIL charge, to reflect the site-specific infrastructure costs, and support delivery of the larger-scale sites.
