Main Changes to Local Plan 2030 Policy S58 - High Halden (A28), Stevenson Brothers Site (MC101) Content

  • Comment ID: MCLP/942
  • Status: Accepted
Policy S58 allocates land at the Stevenson Brothers Site, High Halden for 50 dwellings. The site occupies land adjacent to the A28 Ashford Road and lies approximately mid-way between the settlements of Bethersden and High Halden. The site is therefore in the countryside outside of any defined settlement. The south, west and east of the site are bounded by agricultural land, and the north by dwelling houses and the A28. We do not consider that this site offers the most sustainable and suitable

Main Change MC101 High Halden Parish Council has met twice to discuss the Main Changes in the revised draft of the Ashford Local Plan to 2030, with considerable input from parishioners. We have major concerns at the level of development being proposed in our village and its effect on our heritage. High Halden as a village straddles the length of the A28 road for approximately 3 kilometres, standing between Bethersden and St Michaels, Tenterden. We are keen to maintain our identity as a separate

This large development of 50 properties is massively out of scale with the site location right on the edge of the High Halden and Bethersden Villages. Stating that 2 storey properties are most appropriate ignores the number of single storey bungalows in the near vicinity. The A28 at this point is already dangerous with no footpaths or space for walking safely and it is not suited to cycling. Hence creating traffic to schools, shops and all other activities.

Policy MC101 S58 High Halden (A28), Stevenson Brothers (Pages 45-47) Highways and Transportation The proposed development will be required to provide a new pair of bus stops and also provide appropriate pedestrian linkages to these bus stops. PROW Public Footpath AT158 runs through the proposed site and Public Footpath AT167 runs adjacent to the proposed site. There is no mention of PROW within Policy S58 and the County Council would ask that an additional part is added to the policy to includ

Bethersden Parish Council Objection: Policy S58 To the inclusion of omission sites WC37 ,WC65 ,WC92 in the Ashford Local Plan At the August Parish Council meeting it was concluded that the proposed inclusion of these sites in the Ashford Local Plan to generate 50 new homes was unsound for the following reasons: It would be an unwarranted scale of development in a rural location mid-way between the Villages of Bethersden and High Halden simply geared towards meeting the 5yr housing supply requ

An objection is made to the allocation of the site for 50 dwellings as the site is not justified when assessed against reasonable alternatives. The site is not connected or within reasonable walking distance of an existing settlement and the site would not be served well by local facilities or sustainable transport modes. Bus services along the A28 serving the site are only 1 per hour on a weekday and are not frequent when compared to alternative sites in or adjoining Ashford. The Sustainability

It is unnecessary, and quite preposterous, to allocate this area between High Halden and Bethersden for residential development when there are better sites available - closer to transport links and the facilities provided by Ashford. This proposal is not 'sustainable' as it is entirely reliant on the private car. No local services are included in the proposal, so it would be less deliverable than others through lack of demand. It would also be an inappropriate intervention into the countryside.

Policy S58 – High Halden (A28) – Stevenson Brothers Land (MC101) There are a number of ponds in this site. In the event that development plans threaten these ponds, measures to ensure mitigation or compensation should be included. Section 117 of the NPPF specifies that Priority Habitats should be protected by the planning system and, in the Natural Environment and Rural Communities Act 2006, Ponds are classified as Priority Habitat.

* High Halden has been allocated too many houses by ABC (Over 8% of the Borough's needs is unfair) * Infrastructure - primary school, doctors, hospital, drainage, traffic - inadequate * A28 Access - road already overloaded. When Chilmington Green and TENT1 are finished it will be overcome. Pollution!! * Rural traffic which is essential; combines & grain trucks need to use this road too. * Green field and agriculatural land should not be used for housing - land will be needed after Brexit - w

This site is a valuable light industrial site which could supply employment to sustain the growth in housing in High Halden. Otherwise with the continued reduction in agricultural emplyement, High Halden will become another dormitory village.
