KARA applies for appropriate slots at Hearing of ADC’s Local Plan

 

KARA has applied to appear at the Hearing at following sessions which relate to issues surrounding the use of Mowlands Farmland within Ashfield D.C.s Local Plan.

Dear Mr Kemp

Thanks for this response.  Please note that the proposed allocation that KARA is concerned about is called Mowlands, not Lowlands.  

With regard to the deadline today for confirmation of appearances at the Hearing, and bearing in mind the lack of a specific time allocation for the Mowlands Site, we would wish to reserve the opportunity to speak at the following sessions.  We would expect our main contribution will be on Day 7 with regard to Matter 12:

Day 1: Monday 2 October (morning): Matter 1 – Legal requirements; Matter 4 – The spatial strategy (Policies S2 and S3)

Day 2: Tuesday 3 October (morning and afternoon): Matter 5 – The supply of land for housing; Matter 7 – Deliverability (the housing trajectory, infrastructure and viability)

Day 6: Monday 9 October (morning): Matter 10 – The basis for the housing allocations and the settlement boundaries

Day 7: Tuesday 10 October (morning and afternoon): Matter 12 – The housing allocations and the Main Urban Area boundaries: Sutton and Kirkby (Policy SKA3)
