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.
