SOLVE Report November 2014 - Meeting with Minister

On 5th November representatives from SOLVE and SWAG (South West Action Group) accompanied Maria Miller MP to a meeting with the Planning Minister, Brandon Lewis MP. Maria Miller has issued a Press release see - http://www.solveloddon.org/filemgmt/v...php?lid=22

Although a question on housing numbers was not unexpected, reference to the SE Plan, revoked by the current Government, was unhelpful and surprising since this was a figure imposed by the previous Government for political reasons using questionable evidence.

Planning Inspector questions - In addition to the points made on 5th November the Inspectorís comments reflected many of our submissions, the Inspector questioned environmental issues on the Loddon Valley sites pointing out that these sites are near the Incinerator and potential green infrastructure. He asked for evidence that the LP was effective and how housing proposals square with the Councilís proposals for Green Infrastructure and the creation of a biodiversity Project Area in the Loddon Valley. He also questioned the resources available to implement the waste water treatment and the cumulative impacts on traffic congestion on key routes such as the A33.

The Inspectorís concerns will form the basis of an exploratory meeting, open to the public, with the Borough Council on 11th December. The Council will have to answer these questions or risk rejection of the plan.
