Policy SLBE2 is ambiguously worded; is inward investment welcomed or will it be refused? Under what conditions will employment development be permitted?

The chapter deliberately fails to identify sites where new employment could be established or opportunities for existing businesses to expand (para 14.17).

Wymondley Parish Neighbourhood Plan 2015 - 2031

Representation ID: 6607

Received: 04/08/2017

Respondent: North Hertfordshire District Council

Representation:

Policies express some general support for the growth of existing businesses rather than the development of new businesses. Overall the policies state that the development of additional business premises would not be appropriate, this is explicitly stated in paragraph 14.17. The policies in the neighbourhood plan do not positively seek opportunities to meet the development needs of the area, as required by the NPPF and are not in general conformity with the emerging Local Plan to support economic growth in the area.
In addition, policies cannot be used in the determination of planning proposals outside the designated neighbourhood planning area.
