Further comments made 28 September 2022:
- We have set the Strategic Significance of the whole site as Within area formally identified in local strategy. This is because the site is wholly within the Green Belt, partly within an SNCI and immediately adjacent to a TVG, all of which have specific planning policies and are specifically addressed by the current version of the Local Plan.
- As BNG 2.0 does not allow the Time-to-Target parameter to be adjusted, we have been unable to factor in the three-year delay referred to in our earlier comments. However, we still say that this delay should be factored into this calculation especially as this is an outline application.
- The use of the Ecological Connectivity parameters is also now redundant in versions 3.0 & 3.1, but we have set the baseline Urban - Woodland habitat to Medium in this calculation.
- We have adopted the methodology for calculating Urban Tree habitat used in BNG 3.1 (combined RPAs based on the applicant's AIA) as this is the only workable approach and has superseded the unworkable methodologies used in BNG 2.0 & 3.0.
