HOU10 p183 The Parish Council object to this policy, gardens should not be regarded as brownfield sites in rural areas where substantial gardens contribute to the visual amenity of a neighbourhood.

HOU10 This policy needs to be more robust otherwise it will fail to prevent completely inappropriate and unsustainable development as seen in allowed appeals. There is no description of different types of garden development e.g.infill, backland, tandem, or front garden development. There is no distinction made between them. They all have different impacts. Only one other policy is specifically referred to. This immediately weakens the strength of HOU10. Priority should be given to safeguarding t

I think development of rural gardens turning them over to housing is fundamentally wrong and that rural gardens should be considered as greenfield sites, so not for development, and not considered as brownfield sites. Such developments can be haphazard and you can end up with odds and ends that don't match. I understand that occasionally it might be appropriate but I think these should be a rarity not the norm.

We support policy HOU9 because it recognises the need for standalone annexes which are physically separate from the main dwelling to which they relate. The policy text and preamble set out the criteria in which a proposal for a standalone annex would be acceptable, and this is sufficiently flexible to allow proposals to be considered on a site-by-site basis. We support the recognition that annexes that are proposed in conjunction with existing listed dwellings may not be always be sited in an ac

CPRE objects to this policy. The policy fails to take account of sustainability – and location and access to services in particular. Development in a garden that is not associated with a settlement should normally be considered isolated rural development, would not represent sustainable development, and be refused. The policy must be amended in this regard. CPRE objects to the any treatment of gardens in the countryside as brownfield land. Criteria a. and b., are well written and are also essen

The Kent Downs AONB Unit is concerned that this policy does not provide any restriction on the development of residential gardens within the open countryside. This could result in inappropriate new residential development outside of recognised settlements, including within the AONB and would not be in compliance with para 55 of the NPPF that seeks to avoid isolated new homes in the countryside. It is considered that reference to the proposal being within an existing town or recognised village se
