Allocations and Development Management Plan
6th November 2014
Continued to review the Allocations and Development Management Plan (ADMP), part of the Local Development Framework (LDF), which will go some way to replacing it. I have noticed three additional items that may give rise to concern. The first is that there appears to be nothing said about the protection of specimen trees. The second is that there appears to be no mention of protection of the best quality agricultural land. However, there is mention of this in the National Planning Policy Framework, and so that may suffice. The third is that there appears to be no mention of lawfully protected species. It may well be that there is no need to mention these as the law may always win over planning. I have referred these three items to our planning chairman, Phil Ward, to consider.
