Proposed Submission Local Plan: strategy and sites 2016 - Part 2: Sites A1: The Plaza, Portsmouth Road Policy A1

A1: The Plaza, Portsmouth Road This is at the moment the subject of an unsuitable planning application. It has a planning approval for offices, and that would set a reasonable envelope for residential [of oneform or another], which seems to be the presently preferred 'use'.

Bearing in mind the size and architectural style of the adjacent buildings, seventy homes seems to be over the top. Consider the physical constraints of the site. I refer to the surrounding conservation areas, height and density of existing housing plus access onto the busy Portsmouth road. In addition there is no mention of parking provisions on site. This is a busy residential area which is under enormous pressure from traffic especially during peak times and also the ever increasing demand fo

We have concerns regarding Water Supply Services in relation to this site. Specifically, the water network capacity in this area is unlikely to be able to support the demand anticipated from this development. Upgrades to the existing water infrastructure are likely to be required to ensure sufficient capacity is brought forward ahead of the development. Where there is a capacity the Local Planning Authority should require the developer to provide a detailed water supply strategy informing what i

Under the 'requirements' section, the National Trust would wish to see the first bullet point amended to: Development proposals must be sensitive to the scale and heights of nearby listed buildings, and views of the Church Tower (St Nicholas Church, Bury Street, Guildford) and views into the River Wey Corridor Conservation Area. We would also question whether the opportunity for 'improvements and reinstatement for pedestrian access and public realm' are actually a fundamental design considerat

I object to housing on this site. This is a previously developed site, so makes sense to redevelop it. However, it was not previously used for housing and is within 5km of the Thames Basin Heaths SPA, and therefore any redevelopment, especially for housing, is subject to EU/UK legislation (NPPF 119). The impact of development cannot be mitigated with SANGs because at present there is no evidence base to support SANGs as required by NRM6 viii, NPPF 158 and 166.
