St John’s College continues to support the proposed strategic allocation at Westwood (Policy SP16) to which the requirements of SP12 apply. Whilst we welcome the intentions behind the new penultimate paragraph it is unclear what community facilities will be necessary. Some community facilities are already specified in the strategic policies for the housing sites including SP16 such as a convenience retail store. It is likely that there will be a community building to serve the site and therefore there is no need for this paragraph to be included in the Policy. In relation to community business space, this can be provided in a multi-purpose community building which serves the proposed strategic housing site. Consequently we believe this paragraph should be deleted from the Plan.
