5.

How do you think we should plan for the new homes we need in your area?

  • Higher densities
  • Green Belt release
  • A mixture of higher densities and Green Belt release
  • Other

Please provide any comments here (Maximum 500 characters)
Consider multi-use paces - as Lidl have built flats over their stores, over other shops, libraries etc ie maximise current spaces.

6a

Are you aware of any planning issues that need to be addressed in our detailed day-to-day planning policies?

  • Yes
  • No

6b

If yes, please specify which planning issues

  • Density
  • Design / Character
  • Building heights
  • Parking
  • Conservation Areas
  • Historic features (e.g. listed buildings)
  • Sustainability / renewable energy
  • Flooding
  • Open spaces
  • Other

Please provide an explanation of the issue(s) (Maximum 400 characters)
Surely these issues are self-explanatory - who wants buildings much higher than surrounding buildings; too higher density will affect limited parking in all areas, etc.

Unduly complicated where common sense should prevail or at the very least the K.I.S.S. principle.
