The proposed approach is consistent with NPPF. RBWM Highways has no comments on this policy.

Whilst we are generally supportive that SBC has included a policy that promotes the presumption in favour of sustainable development we object to Policy ST1 in its current wording, provided below, as it goes beyond the provisions at NPPF Para 11(d). "the application of policies in the National Planning Policy Framework that protect areas or assets of particular importance provides a clear reason for refusing the development proposed; or" The draft policy omits the provisions at Footnote 6, whi

We generally agree with an approach that reflects the presumption in favour of sustainable development contained in the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF). In particular we agree with the statement that 'the Council will work proactively with applicants with the aim of finding solutions that mean that proposals can be approved wherever possible, in order to secure development that improves the economic, social and environmental conditions in the Borough.' This statement is of particular r

SEGRO supports the inclusion of the Presumption in Favour of Sustainable Development as a key tenet of the Local Plan. This accords with the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) which is based around this theme. The NPPF sets out three overarching objectives that combine to achieve sustainable development. The economic objective in the NPPF (Paragraph 8) is particularly relevant and states: "to help build a strong, responsive and competitive economy, by ensuring that sufficient land of th

Given that this consultation requires residents to accept as fait accomplis that sustainable development ( a deliberately wooly and misleading term) is the only option available, I reject the premis put forward that we as local residents have to accept the development plan on offer. I would like to see a comprehensive plan for the borough but it should be based on the fact that we are an overcrowded borough with limited access to open and green spaces, allotments, sports, medical and other commu

There is no reference within this policy of the need for infrastructure enhancement to be met in order to support sustainability. Failure to meet the current and future infrastructure needs of the borough will materially degrade the quality of life for existing residents - this should be considered when determining what is sustainable development. The sustainability appraisal indicators for this policy are not realistic and fail to recognise the impact it will have. The presumption in favour of

The Council's objective to work proactively with applicants with the aim of finding the solutions which mean that proposals can be approved wherever possible is supported and our client will seek to proactively engage with the Council accordingly

  • Status: Accepted
When the presumption in favour of sustainable development was first introduced the Planning Inspectorate (PINS) recommended that a policy reflecting this approach should be included in all local plans. This approach is no longer considered necessary by PINS and they have rescinded their original advice on this matter. Given this position and the fact that paragraph 16(f) of the National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) states that policies in local plans should serve a clear purpose and avoid an
