Representation Summary:


The vision for the development states 'facilitating a move towards net zero carbon lifestyles through an innovative approach to planting, design and construction'. While CP supports the need to reduce carbon emissions we are concerned that this may introduce a target for development which is not currently supported by adopted local policy. To ensure this policy is sound CP believe this text should re-worded to make reference to a 'low carbon lifestyle' to be consistent with the adopted Local Plan policy. Stating the development is moving towards net zero sets an expectation which is beyond the requirements of the Local Plan and principles of development set out in the Draft SPD.
