St John’s College continues to support the proposed strategic allocation at Westwood (Policy SP16). The majority of the changes proposed to Policy SP16 are as a consequence of the discussions at the Examination hearings. We specifically support the deletion of the reference to a development brief and that only a Masterplan is required for the site. We also support the deletion of the Green Wedge to the east of the site. In conjunction with our representations on Policy SP12 we have concerns about criterion 3 which requires a range of community facilities without specifying what they might be. We believe this criterion should be amended to simply require a community building together with the small scale convenience retail provision. Finally regarding criterion 5 which states that: Highway improvements including widening of Nash Road and links to Nash Road and Manston Road, to local distributor standard between the southern extent of the site and Star Lane. As the scheme will be subject to a detailed Transport Assessment we are of the opinion that to make this criterion ‘sound’ the criterion should be amended to state: Highway improvements including widening of Nash Road and links to Nash Road and Manston Road, to local distributor standard between the southern extent of the site and Star Lane subject to the detailed Transport Assessment required by this policy
