Parish Council response to SHLAA sites - September 2012

Canterbury City Council is in the process of drawing up a new District Plan. 8 out of the 10 scenarios in the proposals call for further housing in the district. The City Council, based on input from land owners and developers, asked the Parish Council to comment on three sites in Bridge which were deemed to require "further investigation" as SHLAA (Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment) sites.

As part of the ongoing Neighbourhood Plan process, a questionnaire about many aspects of the village was distributed to every household in Bridge. Based on parts of this questionnaire, the Parish Council has prepared a response to the City Council on the 3 sites. The deadline for this response is September 28th 2012.

The Parish Council totally rejected any development on the Church Meadow site and only agreed to very limited development on the other two sites - 10 houses on the land next to the Doctors' Surgery and 8 affordable houses next to the ones already on Brickfields.

The relevant documents (click to view):

1. The Parish Council's response to the proposed SHLAA sites - including a summary of the views expressed by villagers in replies to the Questionaire.

2. The full map of the village showing the Parish Council's proposals for restricted areas within the SHLAA sites for development over the next 20 years submitted to Canterbury City Council.

3. A section (with the SHLAA areas highlighted) from the full map of the village showing the Parish Council's proposals for restricted areas within the SHLAA sites for development over the next 20 years submitted to Canterbury City Council.

The Neighbourhood Plan Committee will shortly have their own pages on this web site showing amongst other items, the membership of the Committee and the Questionaire. (A link to these pages will be added when they are available)
