Policy HIM07

Regards HIM07 - "Enable easy access for large delivery vehicles."

This should not be at the expense of pedestrians. Rather pedestrians crossing in front of the car-park opening at Tesco should be given priority.

Please take a look at the Netherlands where the pavement are continuous over the car-park mouth, meaning cars and lorries must give way to pedestrians. This is particularly vital for those of us with small children and the elderly.

Policy HIM07

HIM07 - In the light of our Climate Emergency we need to use less plastic. Tesco is a massive source of plastic waste due to their fresh fruit and vegetable pre-packaging.

The village centre must have a greengrocer so we can buy fruit and vegetables without plastic.

Policy HIM06 Commercial Core

a)Second bullet point - Helpful to include main town centre uses in NPPF in policy.

b)Second sentence mentions 'diversity and enhance' range of shops etc. Open to interpretation.

c)Fourth and fifth bullet - outside scope of neighbourhood plan so should be deleted.

d)Could make reference to impact of signage and advertising

e)Policy appears to be driven by increasing parking provision which would be detrimental to the street scene rather than creating a good public realm.

f)Draft Village Design Guidance SPD considers this whole area. Could be mentioned in policy

Policy HIM07 The School Hill Site

a)Helpful if town centre uses referred to in first bullet point were included in supporting text and policy

b)Not usual to use a term such as 'thoughtful' public realm strategy plan.

c)Benefit from having design criteria included in it. Such criteria could have set out how the area would be enhanced by the development of this site and how it would fit into the High Street / character of the local area.

d)Note current planning application on this site - S/1793/19/FL being considered by SCDC.

e)Draft Village Design Guidance SPD considers this site. Strengthen policy if referenced

Policy HIM08 The Jam Factory

a)Arrow on Map 12 not clear. No key to explain. Road already has pavements either side - not clear what improvements could be achieved as a result of development of site as a result of policy.

b)How could "small‐scale" residential development be accommodated on site. If retaining employment and open area is there opportunities for residential development?

c)Helpful if Map 12 illustrated in broad terms where greenways, green separation and proposed housing could be located.

d)Area would benefit from a design framework or brief which sets out a spatial design strategy.

Policy HIM09 Vision Park

Suggested revised wording to policy to read ' Cyclists to and from the bridleway alongside the Guided Busway'. It is not a cycleway but a bridleway which is a non motorised user path
