The County Council notes that this strategic site is within 250m of a safeguarded waste facility. Therefore, an Infrastructure Assessment will be required to determine whether the proposed strategic sites are in accordance with the safeguarding policies of the KMLWP. Therefore, an Infrastructure Assessment must be carried out to inform the masterplanning of a strategic housing site. The County Council strongly recommends the wording for requirement 1 "Masterplanning will be informed by and addr

MM/033, MM/034, MM/035, MM/036, MM/040 – while we welcome the additional and more specific references to heritage (archaeology and listed buildings) we maintain our view, as previously stated, that a heritage impact assessment is required prior to allocation of the sites in view of the likely harmful impacts that will result from development of these sites.

From 1 April 2018, a new set of rules covering the charging for new connections and requisitions for companies wholly or mainly in England come into force. These new rules include requirements for water and sewerage companies to provide upfront charges for most connections services and make the charges for offsite reinforcement works more transparent and cost reflective, rather than requiring the developer to connect to the point of nearest adequate capacity. Network reinforcement, required as a

Land is allocated for up to 1,450 new dwellings "with an approximate average density of 40 dwellings per hectare (net)". This is a medium density of development. As a matter of principle, higher densities should be encouraged to reduce the need for loss of best and most versatile agricultural land. In addition, where the required masterplan will be providing details of "linkages to new and existing public transport infrastructure, including bus and rail services," – and in recognition of Westwo
