BP35 - Justification for the removal of proposed development sites in the deposit LDP (April 2009)

The purpose of this background paper is to detail the justification for the removal of a development site (Housing and Employment) from the first deposit Local Development Plan (LDP) in 2009 and/or the proposed allocation of alternative sites as a replacement. The paper sets out the policy context at a national and regional level and in light of this context, recommends an approach for the County Borough. A summary of the site representations are further detailed in the revised LDP Consultation Report.

It is necessary to ensure that the selection of sites is undertaken transparently in order for an Inspector to be confident of a sound process in making changes to a Plan. Under the LDP system there should be far fewer alternative sites (previously termed "omission sites" by the Planning Inspectorate) put forward at the deposit stage, given that landowners, developers and residents will have had a greater opportunity to engage earlier in the LDP preparation process. It is essential that sites accord with the LDP strategy and that the LDP would be sound if included.
