We object to the thresholds the Council is seeking to apply for applications for development that require an impact assessment and in particular the 1,000 sqm threshold for an urban area.

Policy E05 has not taken into account our previous comment. Policy E05 requiring an impact test to be carried out for proposals to build a new store over a certain size: the size of store that triggers the impact test varies depending on where the proposed store will be located.

The threshold size for an impact test for new stores at Westwood should be lower than 1000 m2, and
