Representation Summary:

The open space provision should provide a wide variety of recreational opportunities, but it should not over provide inside the district, nor should it replicate recreational provisions that are easily accessed outside the district for the sake of variety.

Respondent: Brookgate

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The development industry needs certainty, certainly at the point it embarks on attaining planning permission for a new development. It is not reasonable to have a policy position that could shift following the start of that design and planning process. Any advancing sustainable agenda should be clearly set against clear and transparent policy milestones.
