Representation Summary:

Policy FUL/01 Protecting the Distinctiveness and Landscape Setting of Fulbourn.

The supporting text to Policy FUL/1 has undergone much change since the Regulation 14 consultation. It more clearly describes the intensions of the policy setting out clearly the difference between the different elements in the policy for protecting the setting of Fulbourn – the important visual gap, important countryside frontages and the locally important views. This is to be welcomed.

Part 2 of policy –There should be a reference to the map that the Important Visual Gap is identified on ‘….as shown on Map 9 and the Policies Map’. We welcome that Figure 9 is consistent with the current Ida Darwin application.

Part 4 of policy –Part 5 of the policy explains the role of these views and we consider this wording should sit within the same section of the policy as the list of views. It should be noted that planning policy cannot control agricultural land uses or retain woodland unless it includes protected trees or is an ancient woodland.
