Pre-Submission Havant Borough Local Plan 2036 pdf icon PDF 247 KB

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Councillor Turner presented a report to Cabinet seeking a recommendation to Council to approve the Pre-Submission Havant Borough Local Plan 2036.  In commending the document to Cabinet she believed the draft plan to be robust, well informed and reflected the Council’s Regeneration Strategy.

 

Cabinet received the following deputations:

 

·         Ms Law (SW Hayling Group)

 

Ms Law raised concerns regarding the mitigation measures for wildlife and infrastructure proposed on Hayling Island. She also highlighted that the Hayling Island Transport Assessment was incomplete and not supported by Hampshire County Council.  She requested that the sites at Rook Farm and Sinah Lane be removed from the allocations as she did not believe that the rate of mitigation could keep pace with development.

 

·         Mr Hunnibal (Save Long Copse Lane)

 

Mr Hunnibal asked that site H8, Land at Long Copse Lane be removed from the plan.  The site was not suitable for development, being a greenfield site situated in a sparsely populated rural lane without any nearby infrastructure and less than 1/3 mile from the South Downs National Park.   

 

·         Havant Borough Councillor Clare Satchwell

 

Cllr Satchwell explained that Hayling Island was in effect a large cul-de-sac and a lot of traffic data models could not be applied.  The transport study had not been completed and she requested that version 2 of the study be published, prior to the submission of the draft local plan.

 

Cabinet discussed the pre-submission plan and was advised that under the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) the housing target was a minimum and that any sustainable site should be identified within a local plan.  Officers had sought to maximise the use of brownfield sites, however the targets could not be met without allocating greenfield sites. 

 

With regard to Long Copse Lane, the Sustainability Assessment had objectively balanced all considerations and officers believed that it should be allocated, although some landscape impact was acknowledged.  The removal of this site or Sinah Lane would result in the council not having a five-year land supply. 

 

In respect of the deed of variation in respect of land covered by KP5 ‘Southleigh’, the Leader proposed an amendment to recommendation (i) to add the words ‘subject to Cabinet approval on the final wording of such variation’. 

                                                    

This amendment was duly seconded by Cllr Pike and unanimously agreed by Cabinet. 

 

In respect of the deputation made by Cllr Satchwell, the Leader proposed an amendment that the following additional recommendation be added as recommendation (n):

 

“Delegates authority to the Planning Policy Manager, in consultation with the Cabinet Lead for Communities, Development and Housing, to publish version two of the Hayling Island and Mainland Transport Assessments, in order to clarify the mitigation packages needed to accommodate development, prior to the submission of the Havant Borough Local Plan 2036 to the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government.”

 

This amendment was duly seconded by Cllr Pike and unanimously agreed by Cabinet.

 

In response to a question from Cllr Turner, the Planning Policy Manager confirmed that  ...  view the full minutes text for item 121.
