Sustainability Appraisal & Strategic Environmental Assessment - Appendix F - Pennine Towns & Villages
Supporting Documents of the Draft Bradford District Local Plan - Preferred Options (Feb 2021)
Representation ID: 16348
Respondent: Newett Homes
With respect to the SA and noted potential impacts arising from development, the assessment should be corrected to the following: (see attached document for details)
Land and Buildings - The Site’s lower Agricultural Land Classification grade should be accounted for alongside the loss of Greenfield site, giving this a Minor Negative score as opposed to Major.
Climate Change and Resilience - disagree with the major negative score due to small areas of surface water flooding - this does not account of SUDs drainage.
Biodiversity and Geodiversity - SPD1, however, confirms that the Site is of low ecological value
Landscape and Townscape - A Minor Negative score is given, however SPD1 confirms that there would only be minor/negligible levels of change due to surrounding
Cultural Heritage - A Minor Negative effect on the two Grade II Listed Buildings over 220m north is noted. This is highly unlikely as the Site is screened by existing
development and landscape and would be viewed at distance.
