Land west of Jacques Lane - Site Ref: ALP405

The site is located on the west side of Jacques Lane between the single storey dwelling at No. 12 and the two storey house at No. 20. The site supports a single storey brick built agricultural building and has recently been used for equestrian grazing.

The site is outside but adjacent to the Settlement Envelope for the Large Village of Clophill and Hall End Maulden. The site abuts the boundary of the Settlement Envelope on the north and east sides. Planning permission has recently been granted for three detached two storey houses to be built opposite the site. (CB/16/04854/FULL) We support the allocation of this site as a Housing Site which would offer a logical extension to the existing pattern of development in Clophill.

The Site Area is 1.55ha and has a maximum capacity of 26 dwellings.

We attach the Ecological Survey, Tree Survey, Flood Risk Assessment and Transport Statement in support of the proposed allocation as a Housing Site in the CBC Local Plan.

The local highways improvements proposals fall wholly within existing highways limits and are deliverable without any third party issues.

Further information from the Environment Agency suggests that 1 in 100 flood events +35% climate change will require minimum floor levels at 48m AOD. The majority of the site is shown to be close to or above this level giving confidence that the site is capable of delivering development in depth.

The Ecological Survey Report indicates that there are protected species issues but appropriate mitigation can be provided, especially as the land close to the river will remain undeveloped.

The Tree Survey Report has been prepared in support of a current planning application for frontage development. Further tree works will be recommended in the event of an allocation for development in depth.

NLP149 - Clophill:

represent backland development
increase in traffic
already have housing proposed from planning permissions

Re: NLP149
This site was rejected following a Public Inquiry some years ago. It would represent backland development in this part of Clophill where the built form is generally linear along High Street. Importantly, the access on to High Street at this point would be very difficult - dangerous, even - as the road narrows outside nos. 58-64 High Street where on-street parking already causes problems.
Clophill already has outline planning permission for 50 new dwellings on Shefford Road, which will increase traffic along High Street. The site should be rejected.

Clophill is rightly identified as a large village in the Draft Local Plan as it has a good range of services and facilities. Such villages are both capable of accommodating additional development and also require additional development to maintain their existing range of services.

It's noted that the site at Back Street, Clophill (NLP296) is defined as being as "unsustainable location" as it is not a logical extension to the settlement. This is clearly based on no detailed assessment since the proposed development with major benefits to local community as set out in the recent submission to your Council (attached)

Policy SP1:Growth Strategy
It is considered that the growth strategy fails to meet the clear need for new housing across Central Bedfordshire and places an over-reliance on large sites. A greater spread of development on a range of sites, both large and, more importantly, smaller sites, would be consistent with the need to demonstrate delivery and to encourage development by a range of housebuilders as required by the new Housing White Paper.
