Appendix D
NLP 387. This was a site suggested for a Park and Ride and recreation facilities. It is a site that is in close proximity to Ampthill and Flitwick and irrespective of the potential for a Park and Ride it could provide recreational facilities. The land is close to Ampthill and this site could provide needed or additional sports facilities if required for existing, replacement or as an enhancement for the community.

OBJECT Mr & Mrs Maureen Mander

Summary:

NLP082: If this site is built on, serious consideration should be made regarding traffic. The Greenway has become a major road due to the amount of Hanlon lorries using it for access to the A507. In the event of building here the widening of the Greenway should be a major issue. Also Gravenhurst Road would need to be widened to take any extra traffic.

Representation ID: 2206

OBJECT Hallam Land Management represented by Carter Jonas LLP (Mr Brian Flynn)

Summary:

We disagree with the Stage 2 Conclusions as they fail to acknowledge the earlier landscape assessment of the site. Therefore, the findings are not robust and do not fully consider the landscape and visual impacts of development.

We request that land at Ridgmont (Ref. NLP244) should not be allocated as a strategic employment site.

Representation ID: 2204

OBJECT Hallam Land Management represented by Carter Jonas LLP (Mr Brian Flynn)

Summary:

We agree with positive site assessment, but disagree with the decision to then discount the site for strategic employment development. In addition, we note that some of the commentary in the site assessment is incorrect and should be amended including to reflect the findings of the technical reports prepared for the planning application at the site.

Representation ID: 1768

COMMENT Dawsongroup plc represented by Q+A Planning Ltd (Mr Peter Keenan)

Summary:

In summary, the evidence is ambiguous about how sites less than 10 ha should be dealt with. This appears to be an arbitrary figure and unless the Local Plan is clear on how smaller sites ought to be dealt with, this would be contrary to the Council's own evidence and the NPPF.

Representation ID: 236

COMMENT Thomas Harding

Summary:

NLP 437 & ALP 442 Sites are in an area that has been the subject of opposition to a service station off the Roundabout. Applicant's consultant was unaware of potential commitment by Highways England regarding as a minimum modifications to the roundabout right up to re-routeing of the A1 as far south as Baldock. Until plans are firmed up it is premature to develop an area that could hinder HE plans, or have to be demolished when the plans are finalised. Acceptance by the Authority of these sites must be couched in heavy conditions at the developer's risk.

Representation ID: 234

OBJECT Thomas Harding

Summary:

NLP 510 Biggleswade This site is in EPA designated highest flood risk zone 3, zone 3b flood plain as defined by the LGA planning authorities. That is the highest risk of flooding. Any attempt to protect against flooding would have a detrimental affect on local existing residential areas. It would be extremely expensive. The site also suffers from access problems for traffic off the A1 and Hill Lane Biggleswade. This site is not suitable for conventional employment development.
