SUSTAINABILITY APPRAISAL Our Client has concerns about the way in which the different scenarios are assessed against the Sustainability Appraisal (SA) objectives, over reliance on an out of date Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELA) and the fact that the scoring system considers only urban and not rural areas. If the SA does indeed rely on the SHELA, then a further call for sites should have been completed now.

The Retail Evidence Base The Council's retail evidence base is the Ashford Retail Needs and Leisure Assessment (ARNLA) 2015, prepared by Carter Jonas (CJ). Having reviewed the ARNLA 2015, we consider that it underestimates retail capacity in Ashford for the following reasons:  The quantitative assessment assumes existing retail facilities are trading at equilibrium (see paragraph 7.51). In short, the assessment assumes that the existing trading performance is appropriate for the quantum of fl

YES. UK EA mapping confirms part of the site at High Risk from Surface Water flooding. The site slopes from South, with high point in SW to North, with low points in SE. Surface water regularly causes 1-2 inches of "minor flooding" in the NE quadrant due to the impermeability of the land; together with flooding of the ditch under the roadside hedging between Frogmore & Maytree Place. Last recorded incident of "major flooding" was 2001 when field & Woodchurch Road, and adjacent properties

The attached document outlines our concerns in Part 1, Section 4 that our Parishioners have found it extremely difficult to comment on the Plan. Thus we consider that question 4 is flawed as we do not have professional legal or planning knowledge. Part l also looks at the policies which we consider are UNSOUND. Part two of the attached document places objections to two sites in Kingsnorth Parish, S3 Court Lodge (page 50) and S4 Land north of Steeds Lane and Magpie Hall Road (page 55) which we c

We disagree with the assessment of the site at Blackwall Road North, Ashford - Site NW2 - Appendix 4 to the Sustainability Appraisal. We attach Section 5D of our Statement submitted in response to the Consultation on the Draft Plan. Our submissions respond to the assessment against the criteria. We seek revisions to the Site Assessment/Sustainability Appraisal. 5D. OUR COMMENTS ON THE STRATEGIC HOUSING & EMPLOYMENT LAND AVAILABILITY ASSESSMENT (SHELAA) 2015/16 5D.1 As advised above, repre

From the extracts from evidence base the relevant to my site (WS17) and to the King's Head site (WS21), it is apparent that the Council's Planners have a clear resolve to include the King's Head site and an inexplicable prejudice against the Field to the North of Woodchurch Road site, especially when the relevant Appendix 3d Data Surveys are compared. The selection of WS21 in preference to WS17 is unjustified by the evidence. Having compared the two site assessments in Appendices 5, 3d and B (S

Strategic Housing and Employment Land Availability Assessment (SHELAA). 4.1 This evidence base document identifies land that may have future potential for development. It is required to identify a future supply of land in the Borough that may be suitable and available for housing and economic development over the plan period to 2030 and beyond. 4.2 We support the findings of this document that considers land at Rook Toll to be both 'suitable' and 'available' for development. The site assessmen

Site DN1 Land between Cobbs Hill and Long Hill, Old Wives Lees Pleased this site in not included in the draft Local Plan. However, it is still marked as, "Remian in survey for housing". In Appendix 1. I have confirmation that this was in error. The site was considered as not suitable for development and should therefore be marked as filtered at Part 2. This site is unsuitable for development for old or young in view of narrow lanes, no footpath, lack of services in the old wives Lees.
