Representation Summary:

Policy FUL/13 Large Employment Sites

We would recommend that an inset map is included showing the employment sites mentioned in this policy. It is relying on local knowledge for their location otherwise.

Part 2 - The policy is more stringent than Local Plan Policy TI/2 which effectively requires a Transport Assessment and Travel Plan for all development on the two employment sites referred to. The requirements are potentially overly onerous -for example where development is small scale the addition of a new entrance area or a new plant area would be required to provide this.

Part 1 - The Plan does not need to mention that employment development should comply with relevant policies in the Local Plan.

Part 2 –What is’ accepted best practice’? Who would know what this was ‘at the time of an application’? Explanations for this is not included in the supporting text.

The policy mentions clear responsibilities for monitoring but by whom? It might be more appropriate to state that approvals will be conditioned to require the implementation and monitoring of travel plans.
