Sundon RFI - this should be referred to within the consultation document as a growth location. expect RFI to be removed from Green Belt and identified as a site allocation for the next stage.

Full text:

We are responding to this consultation on behalf of Prologis UK Ltd., which is promoting land under its control adjacent to Sundon Quarry for a rail freight interchange (Sundon RFI).

Against the backdrop of the Council's adopted Framework Plan (2015), the draft versions of the Development Strategy and before that the Joint Core Strategy, we are surprised that Sundon RFI is not specifically referred to within the consultation document as a potential growth location / site allocation to be removed from the Green Belt in the emerging Local Plan.

We do note, however, that the RFI is treated as an employment land commitment in the Luton Housing Market Area Growth Options Study and that the Council's site assessments of the RFI proposal demonstrate its strong performance.

We therefore fully expect the RFI to be removed from the Green Belt and identified as a site allocation in the forthcoming Pre-Submission version of the Plan, in accordance with the Council's adopted Framework Plan and the evidence base underpinning the emerging Local Plan.

Finally, we express strong support for the early delivery of the M1-A6 Link Road, to which we expect the RFI to make a proportionate financial contribution.
We look forward to continuing to work with the Council in delivering this long planned RFI.

It is clear that Luton Borough has not addressed its full unmet need and that further housing land could yet be required to meet the unmet Luton need. The assessment accepts this is a logical extension and no coalescence would occur. Now the Inspector has reported on the Luton examination this is a site worthy of future consideration or a reserve site.

The representor is promoting a site at Upper Sundon (ALP 393). The site is being promoted for recreation, retirement housing and housing. Some recreation facilities can be developed without the NGB, but can still provide benefits for the community and the policy should recognise that.

This is a mixed use promotion Ref 393. No recognition in the assessment is given to these other benefits. The assessment makes no comment in the need retirement housing.

It is welcomed that the site can deliver housing for the Luton HMA, however the Inspector into the Local Plan raised a number of concerns regarding the unmet need. This site should be re assessed in the light of those comments.

This site presents an opportunity for development away form the village centre avoiding traffic congestion and additional car parking issues. Whilst the land is Green Belt it is a logical extension to the settlement on medium quality agricultural land and is close to services and facilities in the village.

A mixed residential scheme here could meet local demand and provide additional land for employment generating needs. Additional services are available in the village and wider area, with excellent transport links.
