Main Changes to Local Plan 2030 Policy SP7 - Separation of Settlements (MC85) Content

Issue 1) Loss of village setting, character & identity, becoming part of greater Ashford or having no meaningful gap between settlements. This is a particular issue for Shadoxhurst, being a small rural village very close to the expansion of urban Ashford and so at high risk of coalescence. How does the local plan address this concern and meet villagers' needs? You have introduced a protection policy SP7: 'building development won't be permitted where its individual or cumulative impact results

However, the Main Changes proposes a new policy which seeks to protect the erosion of the countryside and merging of settlements through a restriction of development on non-allocated sites outside of the built up confines of existing settlements. We object to this new emerging policy which seeks to implement a 'green belt' style rule on development outside of settlements. There is no green belt designation within Ashford and we do not consider it appropriate to adopt a self-styled version of th

This policy is welcome but not effective because policies S47, S48, S49 contravene it and immediately render the policy undeliverable. S47, S48, S49 should be withdrawn from the Local Plan. Recent boundary changes emphasising edges of rural and urban development should be noted and respected in SP7. SP7 should include the identification of open spaces and green corridors between and within parishes, and give them permanent protected status.

MC85 ABC Policy SP7 * The new Policy that is designed to prevent the coalescence of settlements is welcomed, although it does not go far enough to properly protect Shadoxhurst. SPC are not naive or fanciful, neither are we 'NIMBYs', but we realise that the expansion of Ashford to the south will place considerable threats and impacts on the village, particularly with traffic. The presence of some 7,000 new houses in the vicinity is bad enough, but we already know that some land will be coming fo

While SP7, separation of settlements, is a good starting point it does not go far enough. Several villages have joined together to create a Landscape Protection Policy, this is a far more proactive policy and the council should adopt it borough wide. The cumulative impact of development and its relationship to the infrastructure and surrounding communities should be considered as a priority. Rather than wait for individual sites to be put forward before instigating SP7 the council should includ

POLICY SP7- SEPARATION OF SETTLEMENTS (MC85) Boughton Aluph and Eastwell Parish Council welcome the inclusion of this new policy to resist the coalescence or merging of two or more separate settlements or the erosion of a gap between settlements resulting in the loss of individual identity or character.

Westwell Parish Council comments on MC 85 Policy SP7- Separation of Settlements . 1. The supporting text of SP7 expresses the issue and the intention clearly and is supported by Westwell Parish Council . 2. Westwell Parish Council also supports Hothfield Parish Council and Ashford KALC's suggestion that in the policy the word "will" be replaced by "may ". 3. But Westwell Parish Council is concerned that Policy SP7 is limited to non-allocated sites. As a strategic policy for the spatial planni

I fully endorse the comments attached [added below] related to the Landscape Protection Policy, not only for the Saxon Shore ward but for the whole Borough. [Attachment text] Arguments against: * No finance set aside from development to improve the infrastructure - poor bus service, rural roads that, whilst not overloaded, are now inundated with HGVs trucks, and cars that often fail to respect speed limits; Doctors surgeries that are close to capacity and a poor bus service to the local hospi
