The County Council notes that this strategic site is within 250m of a safeguarded waste facility. Therefore, an Infrastructure Assessment will be required to determine whether the proposed strategic sites are in accordance with the safeguarding policies of the KMLWP. Therefore, an Infrastructure Assessment must be carried out to inform the masterplanning of a strategic housing site.

The County Council strongly recommends the wording for requirement 1 “Masterplanning will be informed by and address: 1) pre-design archaeological assessment” is modified to: pre-design archaeological evaluation assessment and provision, if necessary, for the preservation of significant archaeological remains.
