Reminder: Local Plan Events

 

Consultation on the plan closes on Monday 27 November.

 

The first Local Plan Briefing (South of the District), which is now fully booked, is taking place this evening, at 7.30pm, Council Chamber, Wycombe District Council offices. There  are still places available for the Local Plan Briefing (North of District) on 2 November at 7.30pm, Princes Risborough Community Centre and to book your place please use this link https://www.wycombe.gov.uk/localplanbriefingnorth. If you do not have access to a computer then please contact Carol Clouden on 01494 421757. As usual, if we find we are oversubscribed for these sessions, we will arrange an additional one.

 

We will also be holding two drop-in sessions to advise on how you can respond to the consultation and what the next steps will be in the process. These are:

  • Thursday 9 November 2pm to 8pm, Committee Room 1 and 2, Wycombe District Council Offices.
  • Thursday 16 November 2 pm to 8 pm, Cherry Baker Room, Princes Risborough Community Centre.

The two drop in sessions we are holding are aimed at helping people fit the comments they wish to make on the plan, to the relevant tests that the Inspector will be using to examine the plan. The examination is expected to take place in the summer of 2018.  The purpose of this consultation is to be sure your views are heard by the Inspector. The Inspector has a specific legal remit, to test the soundness of the Plan. It is therefore in the interests of those making representations, to submit comments spelling out the ‘soundness’ shortcomings, rather than just setting out our general comment. It is because this is not straightforward, we are arranging the drop in sessions.

 

Community groups may want to send in submissions on behalf of residents (listing all the residents names) to avoid each resident having to do their own form – but please bear in mind that only one person would then be able to appear at the hearings with the Inspector.

 

Please also bear in mind in considering what comments that you may like to make, that you can make comments in support of the plan, as well as objections. A community group, for example, may want to write in to support the exclusion of a site from the plan.

  • Bledlow-cum-Saunderton Neighbourhood Plan

Bledlow-cum-Saunderton Neighbourhood Plan

 

Some months ago the owners of the former Molins site, at Haw Lane, Saunderton, began court proceeding to challenge the decision to go ahead with the referendum on the Bledlow cum Saunderton Neighbourhood Plan, and asked the Courts to make an injunction to stop the referendum going ahead.

 

However, the Courts did not hear the application in time and the referendum went ahead as planned with a majority of the turnout in favour of the Plan and the Plan being “made” (i.e. adopted). The claimant then changed the scope of their challenge to overturn the referendum result and the making of the Plan but on 10th September the Court refused permission for the case to go ahead.  We have now received notification from the claimant that they will not be pursing the option to renew their application to challenge – which means the Plan is now safe.

In the bulletin this week:

  • Local Plan: consideration at Cabinet
  • Former Molins Factory, Haw Lane, Saundeton – appeal decision

LOCAL PLAN: CONSIDERATION AT CABINET

 

On 18 September 2017, our proposed submission Local Plan was considered

by our Cabinet. Cabinet agreed that the Local Plan should be

recommended for statutory consultation and then be submitted to the Planning

Inspectorate/Government for Examination. Members also paid tribute to

the work of the Cabinet member for Planning & officers.

 

Our Cabinet’s recommendation will now be taken forward to the next

meeting of our full Council, taking place on 9 October. Depending on

the outcome of this decision, we expect to begin a consultation on our

proposed submission Local Plan. The consultation will run from 16

October to 27 November. We will advise you of the dates of briefings

that are planned for the consultation as soon as the dates are fixed.

 

Please note: An UPDATE PAPER was tabled at the Cabinet meeting,

containing minor changes but which are more than proof reading changes.

In addition to the update, further proof reading changes are being

picked up. These changes will be incorporated into the Plan that will

be published for consultation

 

You may view a copy of the report to Cabinet and the Local Plan and

update (‘supplement’) as considered by Cabinet on the page for the 18

September Cabinet on our website (agenda item 4, appendix 2):

FORMER MOLINS FACTORY, HAW LANE, SAUNDERTON – APPEAL DECISION

 

The Secretary Of State (SoS) has dismissed an appeal for 212 dwellings

at the former Molins Factory Site in Saunderton.

 

The SoS accepted that the site was all previously developed land – all

but 3 of the factory buildings have been demolished and the building

slabs and hard surfaces cover the majority of the 10 hectare site. The

site benefits from a planning permission for four large data centre

buildings but the SoS did not regard this permission as a relevant

fall-back because he had little reassurance that such a development

would be provided in the next 5 -10 years. The planning permission was

therefore afforded limited weight.

 

The SoS regarding the proposed residential development as inappropriate

in the green belt. The visual impact of the development would also

impinge on the character and nature of the green belt. He also

considered that the development would seriously harm the sensitive

character and appearance of the Chilterns AONB.

 

He agreed with his Inspector that the proposal runs counter to policies

that encourage sustainable travel choices. However the harm caused was

reduced by the wishes of the community in the Neighbourhood plan to see

some residential development at this site, the history of the site and

possible transport improvements.

 

The SoS gave weight to the provision of housing and affordable housing

given that the council could not demonstrate a 5 year supply of housing

land; to benefits to the scheduled ancient Monument at the site; public

open space; biodiversity and sustainability; to bringing derelict land

back into active use; and improvements to drainage.

 

In conclusion the SoS considered that the development was not in

accordance with the development plan. The benefits of the proposal

would not outweigh the harm. The development would permanently reduce the

openness of the green belt and conflict with the purposes of the site’s

green belt designation. There would also be significant harm to the

AONB. The very special circumstances that would be necessary to

outweigh the harm to the green belt would not exist to justify the development.

Revised Wycombe Local Development Scheme

We have recently revised our Local Development Scheme. The Local Development Scheme sets out:

  • what local plans we intend to produce
  • the subject matter and geographical area the plans relate to
  • the timetable for the preparation of the documents
  • the status of each document

Our Local Development Scheme was updated in August 2017. It sets out a programme for preparing the new Local Plan, which now incorporates growth previously proposed in the draft Princes Risborough Town Plan. The key points for the Local Plan timetable are as follows:

  • September 2017: we take the draft Wycombe District Local Plan to our Cabinet and Council.
  • October 2017: we hold a consultation on the Wycombe District Local Plan for six weeks. This is final public consultation before we submit our Local Plan to the Planning Inspectorate. We will advise on the exact dates in a future Bulletin.
  • March 2018: we submit the Wycombe District Local Plan to the Planning Inspectorate. 
  • June / July 2018: public hearings as part of the examination of the Wycombe District Local Plan, presided over by an examiner from the Planning Inspectorate. This timing of this stage is set by the Planning Inspectorate.
  • Early 2019: we adopt the Wycombe District Local Plan as the development plan for the Wycombe District, subject to the outcome of the public examination.

Local Plan – Memorandum of Understanding

 

As part of the Council’s work on the Local Plan and its Duty to Co-operate on strategic planning issues the Council has been working closely with the Bucks authorities and the Bucks Thames Valley LEP (BTVLEP), including critically on the scale and distribution of housing across the Bucks housing market area. Last month the Bucks districts and the BTVLEP signed a memorandum of understanding setting out the outcome of this co-operation including an agreement on the housing numbers. This means that the Wycombe Local Plan needs to plan for 10,925 homes over the period 2013-33 with 2,275 of “unmet need” from Wycombe District being accommodated in the Vale of Aylesbury Local Plan.

 

You can view the full memorandum of understanding via the link below:

  • Reminder: Quality Counts Tour
  • Alternative route phase two

Local Plan Timetable update

 

Keen followers of the local plan will be aware that the Council intended to produce the next version of the new Local Plan this summer.

 

We can now confirm that we will be taking the plan to our Cabinet and Council in September – sometimes referred to as ‘publication’. This will be followed by a 6 week public consultation starting in October. We will submit the plan to the Government in Spring 2018 for examination. The timetable is then in the hands of the Planning Inspectorate, but we would expect the hearings in the summer. This will probably lead to a further consultation on changes proposed by the Inspector, allowing us to adopt the plan in the Spring of 2019.

 

The delay in publishing the plan is a result of considering the implications of the Government’s Housing White paper produced earlier this year, updating the evidence base that supports the plan and continuing our negotiations with our neighbouring Buckinghamshire Councils’.

 

Residential Design Guidance SPD

 

The Council has adopted our new guidance on residential design.

 

The Residential Design Guidance SPD replaces the current guidance given in Appendix 1 of the adopted local plan (amended July 2013).

 

It applies to all residential development in the District and aims to ensure that all the new homes we build are designed well, contribute positively to the area and are great to live in for years to come.

Visit our website for more details and to download the guidance (Simon should be able to provide you with a link once the website has been updated)

 

Preparing the guidance has been a long journey as we started the project in 2013. In 2014 the main author, Jonathan Crowhurst was diagnosed with cancer and needed six months of chemotherapy, and a stem cell transplant in 2015. Thankfully, he is now in complete remission and completed the guidance. For more information on his personal story, see his video blog here which was made to coincide with World Cancer Day earlier this year.

Reminder: Quality Counts Tour 

 

This year the tour will focus on some recent mixed use and residential developments within Wycombe District.  The itinerary is still being drawn up but we are most likely to visit the mixed use redevelopment of the Hughenden Corridor and Taylor Wimpey’s Daws

Hill housing development as well as other sites.

 

To reserve your place on this year’s tour which is on 18 July, please book via this link  Quality Counts Tour or if you do not have access to a computer then please contact Sarah Barfield on 01494 421502.

Stakeholder Briefing 15 March

It is our normal practice to include the presentation from a stakeholder briefing in the weekly bulletin the following week – but we have not done so for the briefing on 15 March. Please find a link to the presentation attached. Our apologies – and thanks to all those who attended.

OS Parcel 8955 & 9648, Askett Village Lane, Askett

No Bank Holiday rest for the Planning Enforcement Team.  There is no general requirement for an “out of hours” planning enforcement service as most breaches of planning control can be adequately dealt with during normal office hours.

Occasionally however issues have occurred over a Bank Holiday weekend where prompt action can limit or prevent long term harm being caused, at least until the matter can be properly addressed when the offices reopen.  On an entirely voluntary basis planning enforcement staff therefore provides a limited “out of hours” service on Bank Holidays.

On Thursday evening and the morning of Good Friday a hardstanding was put down to create two separate gypsy pitches and caravans were brought onto a field near Askett.

The site was visited by enforcement officers in the early afternoon of Good Friday and having obtained the details of the occupiers they returned to serve a Temporary Stop Notice by 6.00pm the same day; using for the first time the new powers delegated to them by the District Solicitor for such occasions. This prohibits further works being carried out to the site, or more caravans being brought onto the site.

Planning applications have been received for these works and once the necessary information is submitted these should be registered shortly. In the meantime enforcement officers are in discussion with the offenders in an attempt to resolve the matter without the need for further formal action.

Princes Risborough Plan

 

At Council on 3 April RARA presented a petition concerned at the scale of the expansion of Princes Risborough. The petition can be seen on this link:

https://councillors.wycombe.gov.uk/mgEPetitionListDisplay.aspx?RPID=28722462&HPID=28722462&VM=2

The Council’s Standing Orders provides for the petition to be formally validated against the Council’s petitions scheme, which sets out the response to a petition as follows:

 

  • Less than 200 signatories   –    a response from the relevant officer
  • 200 – 1,500 signatories        –    a response from the relevant Cabinet Member
  • 1,501 – 7,999 signatories     –    referral to Cabinet
  • 8,000 signatories                   –    debate at a full Council meeting.
  • For a single ward issue 500 signatories would trigger a full Council debate.

The petition has been validated. It contained 3,758 signatures. As it is not a single ward issue, a response to the petition will be given at the next Cabinet meeting, which is on 5 June.

The statement of the lead petitioner that was read out at the Council Meeting on Monday is attached to this bulletin, along with statement from the Leader of the Council.

The statement from the lead petitioner refers to the letters written to WDC by RARA. The responses to these letters can be found on the Council’s website at https://www.wycombe.gov.uk/pages/Planning-and-building-control/New-local-plan/Princes-Risborough-town-plan.aspx

Readers might be interested in the various fact sheets (no more than 4 sides each) prepared in relation to the plan, which have recently been updated in the light of the Council winning the recent Park Mill Farm appeal. https://www.wycombe.gov.uk/pages/Planning-and-building-control/New-local-plan/Princes-Risborough-town-plan.aspx

 

  • Background to growth at Princes Risborough in the context of the new Local Plan
  • Major growth at Princes Risborough – response to questions
  • Planned Growth at Princes Risborough – infrastructure provision

 

Planning Fees Increase

From the 1st July 2017, planning fees will be increasing by 20%.  These fees can be found on our website https://www.wycombe.gov.uk/pages/Planning-and-building-control/Planning-applications/Planning-application-fees.aspx.     For more detailed information regarding the current regulations, please refer to the Town and Country Planning (Fees for Applications, Deemed Applications, Requests and Site Visits) (England) Regulations 2012.

Survey – Creating Healthy Places

Design Council and Social Change UK are undertaking research to uncover what people working in the built environment do to create healthy places, the barriers that prevent professionals from going further, and how these barriers could be overcome in the future. The survey takes 5-10 minutes to complete and runs until 26 April.  The research findings will be published in June 2017.

Take the survey ‘How good are you at creating healthy places?’ here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/healthyplacemaking

Princes Risborough: delivery plan funding

 

Wycombe District Council put in a bid for Government funds before Christmas to help fund the work to take the Town Plan to a more detailed level. This bid was successful. The funding received from the Government amounts to some £222,000. WDC assembled match funding of £132k. Work on the ‘delivery’ and ‘capacity’ plans can now start in earnest – we will, of course, keep you up to date as the project progresses through the Weekly Bulletin.

 

Developer Consultation: Redevelopment of the Former Staff Car Park of Broomwade-Compair at Bellfield Road

 

On 6 April, the Major Projects team of the Council is inviting you to come along and comment on the proposal for the redevelopment of the Former Staff Car Park of Broomwade-Compair at Bellfield Road.  Consultation Boards and staff from Pick Everard & Savills will be at the Foyer / Entrance of Morrison Superstore, Temple End HP13 5XX, from midday until 8.00 p.m.

 

Major Projects are proposing 62 affordable housing apartments in a seven-storey block with the requisite car parking, both adjacent and under-croft, with roof top and courtyard gardens. In addition, the team is also proposing in the first phase 12,600 sqft of low cost workspaces and associated car parking for furniture makers and crafts trades, with the title of “H-Qube Maker Space.”

 

Your feedback is genuinely welcome, before the planning application is submitted.

Thames Water: recent fine

 

As many of you will have heard on the national news, Thames Water was recently fined over £20m because of pollution incidents.

 

One of these was at the Thames near the Little Marlow Lakes. Readers might be interested to read more in the press release issued by the Little Marlow Lakes Country Park Community Partnership, which is attached to this Bulletin.

  • Bledlow-cum-Saunderton Neighbourhood Plan – Referendum  4 May
  • Alternative route phase two

Bledlow-cum-Saunderton Neighbourhood Plan – Referendum: 4 May

Bledlow-cum-Saunderton parish council submitted a proposed neighbourhood plan in August 2016 for formal consultation. We consulted on the plan between 12 September and 25 October 2016, then submitted the plan for independent external examination.

The Council received the examiner’s report in December 2016 and made an initial decision in February to proceed to referendum. Following a potential legal challenge the Council has revisited the examiner’s report and has recently made a new decision, which is also for the plan to proceed to referendum.

Wycombe District Council is satisfied that the Bledlow-cum-Saunderton Neighbourhood Development Plan, as amended in accordance with paragraph 12(4)(b) of Schedule 4B to the Town and Country Planning Act 1990, meets the basic conditions set out in paragraph 8(2) of Schedule 4B to the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 and complies with the provisions made by or under sections 38A and 38B of the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004.

The Counting Officer (Karen Satterford) has decided that the Referendum would be on Thursday 4 May at the same time as the County elections. The referendum area is the Bledlow-cum-Saunderton Parish area.

Information on the referendum, the decision statement, the examiner’s report and the Neighbourhood Plan documents can be found on our website.

https://www.wycombe.gov.uk/pages/About-the-council/Elections-and-voting/Bledlow-cum-Saunderton-neighbourhood-planning-referendum.aspx

Any query about the referendum should be addressed to Rob Curtis rob.curtis@wycombe.gov.uk or 01494 421 242.

In the bulletin this week:

  • Park Mill Farm, Princes Risborough Appeal
  • How Can we Work Together Efficiently and More Effectively?
  • Alternative route phase two

Planning appeal for Park Mill Farm, Princes Risborough

 

The Planning Inspector has issued his decision on the appeal for up to 500 dwellings at Park Mill Farm, Princes Risborough, which was heard at Public Inquiry over 8 days back in January of this year.  The appeal is dismissed and planning permission is refused. A copy of the decision notice is attached, but can also be viewed on the web site LINK HERE to our Public Access page then enter the reference number 15/07825/OUTEA.

 

In summary, the Inspector dismissed the appeal because in the absence of an underpass the proposal would lack the necessary integration with Princes Risborough, fail to maximise the use of sustainable transport modes, and in the absence of demonstrating that the proposed highway mitigation would be acceptable the development would have a severe impact on the local highway network. 

 

The Inspector also ordered a partial award of costs against the Council for acting unreasonably in pursuing a reason for refusal related to the quantum of development and the effect on the character and appearance of the area. 

 

How Can we Work Together Efficiently and More Effectively?

 

We would like to work more efficiently and more effectively with you.  With this in mind, we would like to invite you to consider how you email us.  Sometimes emails are sent to the Council which copy in a number of other officers.  Because it can take time to establish who your email is for, or who within the email chain is going to be responsible for replying to you, it can result in a delayed response.  It can also mean a number of staff end up duplicating work in order to reply to you which means tax payers have paid more than was necessary for the service.

 

We understand you may not know who to address your enquiry to so we hope that by clarifying things for you, it will mean we can work together to deliver a more efficient and cost effective service for you !.

 

Contact :

  • If you are contacting the Council in relation to general planning matters you can email us at planning@wycombe.gov.uk. Emails to this domain are monitored regularly throughout the working day. 
  • If you are wishing to make a representation on a planning application, you have 3 options.  You can either send your representation to planning@wycombe.gov.uk, to the individual case officer, or you can submit it via public access from our website.  Please note : Officers do not reply to representation letters.  They do however take all your comments into account before the application is determined.

 

 

So to recap : if you want the most efficient and cost effective service, please help us to deliver that to you by only emailing the generic email address or the email address of one officer.

At its best, planning is highly collaborative and creative, but it can be very stressful too – and Christmas gives us the opportunity to stand back and have conversations ‘outside’ of the ‘planning bubble’. It is completely informal – and you may well have better things to do with your time! But if you’ve finished your Christmas shopping, or can stop by on your way between more important events, we would be very glad share a glass and a mince pie.

If you are able to join us could you please let Sarah Barfield know, Sarah.Barfield@wycombe.gov.uk.
