Good Morning,

RE: LOCAL PLAN FOR THE BRADFORD DISTRICT – ALLOCATIONS DEVELOPMENT PLAN DOCUMENT

ISSUES AND OPTIONS CONSULTATION (REGULATION 18)

As you will know the Council is in the process of producing a new Local Plan for the District which will eventually replace the current statutory development plan (the Replacement Unitary Development Plan). You may also be aware that the Local Plan comprises several separate documents which are at different stages of preparation.

I am now writing to inform you that work has commenced on another Local Plan document, the Allocations Development Plan Document (DPD), and the Council are beginning a period of ‘Issues and Options’ consultation on Tuesday the 10th May.

The Allocations DPD is a key planning document as it will identify and allocate sites which will meet the district’s needs for new homes, jobs and infrastructure. It will also designate key areas of amenity and environmental value such as green spaces and wildlife areas so that they are protected and enhanced. The Allocations DPD will cover the majority of the district but please note it does not cover or include policies or allocations for the Bradford City Centre or Shipley & Canal Road Corridor areas which are the subject of separate Plans.

When adopted, the Allocations DPD, will contribute towards decisions on individual planning applications.

The Allocations DPD is required to implement the policies of the Council’s Core Strategy and accord with the Government’s National Planning Policy Framework. The Council are therefore not consulting or inviting comments on matters which are the subject of the Core Strategy such as how many homes are needed and should be built in each settlement.

Aim of this consultation

The Council welcomes the submission of comments on any matters but at this early stage are particularly keen to receive comments on:

· The intended scope of the plan – what it will cover;

· The sites which should be allocated to meet development needs and targets;

· The greenspaces and environmental areas which should be protected; and

· Any information, evidence, studies or data which the Council should consider.

A range of supporting material has been published on the Council’s website to inform this process. In particular documents and maps have been produced to show the current list of potential development sites on an area by area basis. There is an interactive map of the district on the website which shows the sites in more detail.

The Council welcome comments on the suitability, or otherwise, of these sites for development and what type of development would be appropriate. However it has also issued a ‘Call For Sites’ which means it would welcome the submission of additional site options. Such sites should be deliverable and be a minimum of 0.2ha in size.

The main documents which you will find online include:

A ‘Background and Scope’ paper which indicates the things the Plan will cover;
Background papers which include lists and maps both of possible sites and also currently designated green spaces;
A ‘Call For Sites Suggestion Form’ – the Council encourage those suggesting additional sites to use this as it ensures that the Council have the right information to begin assessing them;
A ‘Call For Evidence’ paper;

The material for the Allocations DPD can be viewed from Tuesday 10th May at: www.bradford.gov.uk/bmdc/the_environment/planning_service/local_development_framework/development_plan_documents.htm

Deposit Locations

The key consultation documents are available for inspection at the following deposit locations:

§ Principal Planning Office: at Jacob’s Well, Bradford. Please note the service is due to re-locate to Britannia House in June so materials will be transferred there;

§ Main libraries: Bradford Local Studies Library, Bradford City Library, Shipley, Bingley, Keighley and Ilkley.

§ Town Halls & One Stop Shops: at Shipley1, Keighley and Ilkley[1];

People are free to download and print their own copies of the consultation documents and supporting documents as they require.

How You Can Comment

There are several ways in which comments can be submitted. This includes a standard form which can be downloaded or via the Interactive map which has a facility to make comments. Comments can be submitted by post or by e-mail. The Council strongly encourages the use of electronic and online methods of submission as it makes the processing and response to them quicker and more efficient.

Representations should be submitted to:

planning.policy@bradford.gov.uk or in writing to:

Local Plans Group, 2nd Floor South, Jacobs Well, Manchester Road, Bradford, BD1 5RW.

Comments and responses must be received by 5pm on Tuesday 19th July 2016

The Council appreciates that the Local Planning process is complex so please feel free to contact the Council’s staff at the contact details below if you require any information or wish to receive advice or assistance on how to submit your comments or use the online interactive map.

Please note – submitted comments including names and postal addresses cannot be kept confidential as the Council are required by law to make these available. However your telephone number, e-mail address and signature will not be published. Further details of the data protection exemptions which the Council has to follow under planning legislation is included on the comment forms.

Any comments submitted may be accompanied by a request to be notified of forthcoming stages including:

when the Allocations DPD is submitted for independent examination by the Planning Inspectorate and
of the publication of the recommendations of the person appointed to carry out the examination; and
on the adoption of the DPD.

Group Responses

Where there are groups who share a common view on how they wish to see the Plan changed, it would be very helpful for that group to submit a single representation which represents the view of the group, rather than separate individual representations which repeat the same points. In such cases the group should indicate how many people it is representing and how the representation has been authorised.

What Happens Next?

Following the period for representations the Council will record and consider each of the comments, assess the issues raised, gather evidence and assess all site options. It will then prepare a preliminary draft Plan for further consultation.

Should you have any further queries about the Plan or the forthcoming process please contact my colleague Simon Latimer at simon.latimer@bradford.gov.uk

or by telephone (01274) 434606.

Should you require assistance in accessing the online material or using the online maps and questionnaire please feel free to contact my colleague Leah Midgley at (01274) 434461 or by e-mail to leah.midgley@bradford.gov.uk


Yours faithfully,

Andrew Marshall

the inspectors report into the plan is now available for review. a couple of specific mentions for Silsden:
quote
Silsden will see the creation of 1,000 1,200 new homes with associated community facilities and the creation of Silsden Rural Business Park. Supporting highway infrastructure will be provided together with good walking and cycling links to Silsden and Steeton railway and bus interchange station.
quote
170. Some concerns have been raised about the ability of Silsden to deliver the amount
of expected growth, particularly in terms of flood risk and infrastructure, including
schools. However, these factors do not detract from its proposed position in the
settlement hierarchy. Silsden is a hub for the upper Airedale/ Wharfedale
communities, and the updated HRA work indicates that the increased amount of
development could be accommodated without having an adverse impact on the
integrity of the South Pennine Moors SAC. The latest SHLAA [PS/G004i] identifies
sufficient potential land to meet the increased figure without using any land in the
Green Belt or within Flood Risk Zones 2a or 3. CBMDC has identified no
infrastructure issues which cannot be addressed by the relevant service providers
when the detailed location and size of development sites has been established in
the SADPD; critical infrastructure is identified in the LIP [EB/044; PS/M005]. No
service providers have raised objections to the original or revised target figure,
and issues relating to drainage, flood risk, school capacity, traffic and transport
investment (including the Eastern Relief Road) will be addressed in more detail at
the site allocations stage

Campaigners' anger as planning inspector agrees Bradford's green belt must be built on

The full article from the T & A
goo.gl/FGTXtM

Cllr Cooke said he and his Conservative colleagues were “massively disappointed” by the inspector’s report.

He said the district needed more affordable houses in urban areas, but this plan would instead provide “large homes in the leafy villages, for very financially comfortable people who wish to live there and commute into Leeds every day”.

He said: “I am absolutely confident that in ten years, due to these proposals, we will have a more acute need for housing for low income households, but a few more rich folk living in the outer towns and villages.

“To concrete over the Green Belt to achieve this is inexplicable.”

Councillor Adrian Naylor, leader of the Independent Group and ward councillor for Craven, believes this leaves major unanswered questions such as how is the necessary infrastructure to be paid for, by whom and when.

He added: “The need for additional secondary school capacity in Wharfedale has not been addressed, rather it has been left to a later stage.

“The issues of road improvements or bypasses such as the eastern bypass round Silsden - a requirement by the last planning inspector prior to any house building - is now something to be dealt with at the site allocations stage.

“Developers are not waiting for these additional plans to be made or funding to be found, they are building houses now and in some areas will have built the total requirement before the core strategy is voted on.”

Oh dear. Chickens coming home to roost.

All the policies that created the present housing situation are pretty well known.

I will just point out how different things were in 1974 with Labour in power.

I needed a house. I put myself on the council housing list. No chance, but as a consolation I could apply for a 100% mortgage, at 9.5% interest, 0.5% over the normal rate. This I did and bought a brand new three bedroom town house, not the smartest area but OK otherwise. Garage, no central heating and all three bedrooms would take a double bed. Must have been less than £10000 as the price could not have been more than three times my salary.

There are no doubt plenty of others who started on the housing ladder in a similar manner.

So thank you Harold Wilson.

How will today's mid 20 year olds remember the current crop of Prime Ministers?

old miner... I don't suppose the Blair Labour government opening the doors to, and encouraging, unlimited immigration had any thing to do with the housing shortage? You will say NO, but it is a huge factor. Harold Wilson did not have that to face. Times have changed....!

As I remember it was a conservative government that took us,into the EU.

Also it is the Tory supporting businesses that have always welcomed cheap imported labour.

Blaming it on foreigners is the pathetic tactic of ignorant fascists.

Old Miner is getting mixed up with the UK joining the Common Market and Labour agreeing to The Citizens Rights Directive 2004/38/EC. Housing is solely down to supply and demand. Saying having open borders does have some truth to it as one of many reasons and is not fac
ist or racist to say so.

old miner, I am not a fascist. I have supported Labour for 50 years, but I don't always agree with everything they do. The recent brexit vote showed many people are concerned about unlimited immigration, and the effect on housing, health and schools. This is one of the reasons Silsden is having more houses built, and many other places are facing the same housing shortage. We can't take in an extra 300000 (probably a lot more in reality) people every year and not feel the strain.
You are like most hard-left supporters, when someone raises criticism, you call them fascists and get the nasties on to them.. bit like Jeremy Corbyn is doing at the moment. Well it won't work, people are seeing old style politics for what it's worth, and getting fed up with it. Time to move on. Silsden will have to grow whether we like it or not.

I agree, but we don't have to accept everything that Bradford dumps on us. It's very convenient to build houses on nice green fields and the place that we find so nice, the reason we chose to live here in the first place, suddenly becomes like every other large commuting conurbation.

Bradford don't care about us, they see Silsden as a place to collect money from the council tax. They can't even get a good deal from the dévelopers to pay for infrastructure costs.

Banklands have very nice flat fields, which may look ideal for house building in the summer months, BUT for 6 months of the year - water will ooze around your boots. These fields absorb an enormous amount of water which would otherwise flow down the hill and into the beck.

Water flows downhill, so one man's house on high ground is someone disaster when the water gets to a living room on the valley floor. Expect the new houses build in the lower areas of Silsden to have flood problems at some point in the future. Of course that may well be when this debate has long been forgotten and of course it would not be our problem that we stood by and let it happen - "nothing to do with me, but I told you it was the wrong pace to build houses!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

They can put in all the individual water retention schemes they want to, but the fact remains Bradford have no overall flood strategy for Silsden.

The Bradford Local Land Allocation plan is to build first and put the infrastructure in when there is a problem - not good enough, we have every right to say we don't want any more houses in Silsden.

last christmas we witnessed & have video footage of water springs appearing in the field earmarked for the new school. not just standing water but actually bubbling up from buried springs in half a dozen different spots around the field close to the fence. there were likely more further into the field that we couldn't see.

those 'flat' fields are a huge buffer between the water running off the moor and the town below.

Though I agree with your opinion regarding your comment “The Bradford Local Land Allocation plan is to build first and put the infrastructure in when there is a problem - not good enough, we have every right to say we don't want any more houses in Silsden.” I whole heartedly disagree with your views, or other peoples views on the matter of building on land with springs or surface water problems.

I feel that maybe you are ill informed or just naïve to the fact that Silsden of today is built over many springs and old water courses. It could be said that it is riddled with them. I remember about a year or so ago one such member on this forum was carrying out research into just this matter and trying to plot them all. My neighbour, much to our discontent, has a very particular problem in that his void beneath his floorboards, during wet weather must act as a pond. The pressure from this spring under his house is such that water is forced through the cement in the brickwork, below dpc level and jets out down the side of his house. You only have to walk around Silsden, no matter what season, to see evidence of ground water issues.

If we live with these problems then I believe that new housing can also live with these problems. In fact it can be said..given that Suds will be implemented new houses will be best catered for when ground water issues arise than any of us living in current housing.

Further to this I am dumfounded by the continuous misuse of the word ‘Flooding’ in Silsden. We haven't had flooding like Carlisle, York or Glenridding. Given that we live on a hill and not on a valley floor or indeed have many flat spots that hold water..we haven't really experienced what flooding is about.

However. The issues we do face are as a result of ground water, such as those from springs and saturated ground due to clay podzols and overflowing aquifers. These issues are not unique and man has been living with these issues since time began.

Once many of the mills were powered by water which was utilised in a more controlled fashion through use of ponds, weirs and channels. Today our valleys that once supported industry and controlled the water are no longer operational and our water for much is not so controlled resulting in overflowing becks and tributaries. Farming methods have much to answer for! When was the last time you saw a ditch been managed. The only one I can think of is the ditch alongside Brown Bank Lane adjacent to the Caravan Park. I congratulate the owner. But there is a big but... that water has to go somewhere..and that is usually down hill. We need more upland ponds and wetland areas created to hold back the ground water and spring waters.

Much of the issues with water we have had could have been controlled better. I don’t think continuously ‘having a go’ at Bradford because the drain isn't big enough to cope is the answer, or stop building on wet fields, when the problems really lay with where the water is coming from, that from the fields. I do respect that Bradford should take some blame if for example: No proper containment, such as sumps or other catchment systems are in place on playing fields or if they have naively ignored ongoing issues.

Peter: You talk of a strategy. Can you imagine the cost for such a strategy for every conurbation? The strategy..if that’s the word you want to use should be aimed right..and as I say the problems really are above us in the fields and how they are managed, and the knock on affect to us in the built up areas.

What you say is largely correct, But we can have a go at Bradford; because they are not doing enough to prevent the problems caused by the water running off the hills.
Craven Council are on with a great scheme beside the A65 Otley road just outside Skipton.
Bradford could do the same here. Yes it will cost money, but it will cost a lot more in the future; when the problem is a lot worse due to all the house building Bradford is forcing on us without the proper infrastructure to support it.
And yes they could afford it if they stopped wasting money on unnecessary schemes in the city centre.

A GOVERNMENT minister has stepped in to pause a controversial development blueprint, after Shipley's MP raised fears about the scale of building in the green belt.

But Bradford Council bosses have responded with anger, accusing Philip Davies of jeopardising the very fields he sought to protect.

The Council’s executive was today poised to back the core strategy of its Local Plan, which includes controversial proposals to build 11,000 homes on green belt land by 2030.

But in a dramatic twist, planning minister Gavin Barwell has told the authority to halt all proceedings while the Government investigates concerns raised by Conservative MP Mr Davies.

The delay has provoked angry responses with Council leader, Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, accusing Mr Davies of “a completely irresponsible abuse of power”.

Mr Davies had lobbied Communities Secretary Sajid Javid to intervene after a Government planning inspector effectively ratified the Council’s strategy last month.

In particular, Mr Davies raised concerns about the loss of green belt which was being proposed for Wharfedale.

He said the plan should include rules that developers have to build on all available brownfield land before moving into the green belt.

And he said the core strategy would only bring back into use 3,000 of the 7,700 empty homes in the district.

Mr Barwell has told Bradford Council to stop all work on adopting the plan, while Communities Secretary Mr Javid looks into the matter and decides whether to intervene.
