Waverley Borough Council Committee System - Committee Document

Meeting of the Environment and Leisure Overview and Scrutiny Committee held on 13/03/2007
Schedule of Local Plan Policies




SCHEDULE OF LOCAL PLAN POLICIES

These schedules are based on the criteria set out in the Protocol that was circulated to local authorities by DCLG in August 2006. However, for simplicity, two columns have been deleted because the answer in each case is the same. These are:

Where appropriate there is a clear central strategy. The answer in each case is YES – the central strategy is set out in Chapter 1 of the Local Plan – “Introduction and General Strategy”. All policies in the plan are consistent with this central strategy.
Policies are in conformity with the Core Strategy development plan document (where the Core Strategy has been adopted). The Waverley Borough Core Strategy has not been adopted and will not be adopted prior to the end of the 3-year saved policy period in September 2007. Therefore the answer in every case is NO.

CHAPTER 6: HOUSING AND COMMUNITY FACILITIES
H2 -
Monitoring and Phasing of Housing Development
N/AN/AN/AN/AN/AThis policy gives the Council the opportunity to phase the release of large windfall housing sites that are of a predominantly open nature (such as sites comprising large areas of garden land). This approach is consistent with the PPS3 “Plan, Monitor, Manage” approach to housing delivery

H3
– Land Reserved to Meet Longer Term Development Requirements
N/AN/AN/AN/AN/AThis is a local site allocation policy relating to a site at Furze Lane, Godalming. this is a greenfield site which, based on the principles of making best use of previously developed land, has been held in reserve and safeguarded from premature development. The Local Plan states that the site will be safeguarded from development until such time as the Council is unable to demonstrate a five-year supply of housing land set against Structure Plan requirements. The site is outside the settlement area and, in housing supply terms, would not be the first choice location for new housing unless the Council were unable to fullfill its housing requirements through the development of appropriate sites on Previously Developed Land. The emerging RSS and national policy in PPS3 advocate the management of the release of sites and the use of phasing policies, where appropriate. Pending the development of new policy through the LDF, it is considered that the policy should be saved in order to safeguard this greenfield site from premature development.
H4 – Density and Size of Dwellings
N/AN/AN/AN/AN/AThis policy deals with both housing density and housing mix.

The second part of the policy deals with density and reflects guidance in PPG3. This has now been superseded by the density guidance in PPS3.

With regard to housing mix, the guidance in PPS3 only goes so far. This policy sets out the local context and criteria for considering housing mix.

H5
Subsidised Affordable Housing within settlements
N/AN/AN/AN/AThis policy and its associated text apply national and regional policy on affordable housing at the local level. It is important because it sets the thresholds for affordable housing and the required proportion of affordable housing. The percentage required on site is less than the overall targets set in the draft RSS and the 2004 Structure Plan. However, if the policy is not saved then there would not be the local thresholds to apply.
H5A – Subsidised Affordable Housing at Bourne Mill
N/AN/AN/AN/AThis is a site-specific policy where the requirement is that the site be developed primarily for subsidised affordable housing. Pending the development of the new housing strategy in the LDF and any associated site allocations it is considered that Policy H5A and the associated designation on the Proposals Map be saved

N/AN/AN/AN/AN/AThis policy provides a local focus for the delivery of housing that addresses special needs.
H8
Retention of Residential Land and Buildings
N/AN/AN/AN/AN/AThis local policy seeks to safeguard existing housing. Given the strategic housing allocations and the constraints on new development, particularly outside settlements, it is important to safeguard the existing local housing stock.
H9
Conversion and sub-division
N/AN/AN/AN/AN/ABoth national policy (PPS3) and the draft RSS refer to the benefits of making more effective use of existing housing stock. The conversion and sub-division of existing residential and non-residential buildings can an important contribution to housing supply. This policy sets out local issues to be addressed in such proposals.

Community Facilities
CF1
Retaining Existing Community Facilities
N/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AGood access to community facilities is an important component of the development of “sustainable communities”. It follows that community facilities that are needed should be safeguarded. This local policy provides the criteria for assessing proposals to redevelop or change the use of local community facilities.
CF2
Provision of New Community Facilities
N/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AThis policy complements Policy CF1 by providing specific local criteria for assessing proposals for new community facilities.
CF3
Educational Establishments
N/AN/AN/AN/AN/AN/AThis policy provides the specific local criteria against which proposals for new education facilities are assessed.
