The County Council – as Local Minerals and Waste Planning Authority - confirms that, according to British Geological Survey safeguarding data, Sandstone (Folkestone Formation) is present within the allocated site and are vulnerable to sterilisation. As set out in the adopted Kent Minerals and Waste Local Plan 2013-2030, Policy CSM 5: Land-won Mineral Safeguarding and Policy DM 7: Safeguarding Mineral Resources detail how minerals of economic importance will be safeguarded from being unnecessari

Hothfield – Land East of Coach Drive Paragraph 4.344 acknowledges that the site is adjacent to Hothfield Common SSSI and that the site is already under considerable pressure from recreational use. Paragraph 4.340 goes on to state that "… it may be possible for an emerging Neighbourhood Plan to identify alternative locations for development." Given the threat to the SSSI and the possibility that an alternative site may be found, we would question the inclusion of this site in the Local Plan as a

The proposed site access has been stipulated to be from Station Road, close to Coach Drive, where it would lie close to the brow of a hill and the inside of a bend. Coach Drive currently suffers poor visibility and the suggested new access will require extensive tree removal along the eastern side of Station Road. Para 4.342 also makes reference to suitable traffic management arrangements; some residents have suggested a mini-roundabout which would result in extensive street lighting, illuminate

CPRE objects to this proposed allocation. CPRE does not object in principle to some additional housing in Hothfield, but it is considered that this site, as a result of its close relationship to Hothfield Common (SSSI), it is unlikely to be suitable. This site is already subjected to significant recreational pressure. Furthermore the settlement is current tightly clustered around its centre. Not only would development of this site be at-odds with the prevailing pattern of growth at the settlem

June 2016 – Local Plan 2030 Draft On behalf of Hothfield Parish Council, I am now formally submitting Hothfield Parish Council's consultation feedback, insofar as the Local Plan draft applies to the parish of Hothfield. Recent History As part of our feedback, we have reflected on the public meeting you attended with Hothfield residents on 12th October 2013, where the sentiments were, we did not wish to see large scale development in the village, but instead, residents favoured smaller "infill

This seems to me to be a sound document which sets out the need to consider business and residential development in and around Ashford. The plan appears to have identified a number of sites for residential development which would enhance the local area and cause minimum negative impact. In relation to Hothfield, plans for any development should be part of the overall plan for the village, i.e. should respond to village needs before the requirement to build houses in the borough. Villages must b

Bullet point f needs to be amended to reflect the purpose Biodiversity Opportunity Area. This is not a planning constraint; it is intended to direct any enhancement or mitigation so that it better reflect the typical habitats and species of the area. Kent Wildlife Trust is pleased to note that following earlier consultation, this allocation has been reduced to 40 dwellings. However, we would nevertheless like to see a reference to the sensitive site of Hothfield Common, which is already under c

Please see submission Regarding new omission site The allocation of a site for 40 houses at Hothfield would help to sustain and support local services and make a contribution to a range of deliverable housing sites across the Borough. The Draft allocation at Coach Drive could not deliver sustainable development; it would be a free standing development in the countryside which would harm its rural setting and put pressure on the SSSI. The alternative site between West Street and The Street is t

This representation relates to the proposed allocation, Policy S33 – Hothfield, Land East of Coach Drive, and is made on behalf of the landowners and promoters of the proposed allocation. It is considered that the proposed allocation has been appropriately considered and is consistent with National Policy. It is a positive response to the council's requirement to provide sufficient housing to meet objectively assessed housing need, the allocation is justified in this respect and for the reason
