Draft Bourn Airfield Supplementary Planning Document - June 2019
Representation ID: 168317
Respondent: Countryside Properties
Agent: Andrew Martin Associates
3 VISION AND OBJECTIVES - STRATEGIC OBJECTIVES
Strategic Objective 5, Responsive and Sustainable sets out a number of objectives, including the following statement -
'Incorporating low or net zero carbon buildings, renewable energy and low emissions travel, aiming to exceed existing Local Plan standards'
While Countryside is fully supportive of delivering development which exceeds the Local Plan standards this must be within what is feasible, viable and sound. The delivery of net
zero buildings goes well beyond the Local Plan requirements and has significant feasibility and viability issues. It is recommended that Strategic Objective 5 be amended to:
'Incorporating low carbon buildings, renewable energy and low emissions travel, aiming to exceed existing Local Plan standards where technically feasible and viable'
