E7. Planning Applicants should seek to minimise the carbon footprint of their development proposals and are encouraged to submit a statement setting out the anticipated carbon emissions of the proposed development.
E8. New development should aim to meet a high level of energy efficiency where achievable, by: • Exceeding the target emission rate of Building Regulations Part L 2013 for dwellings. • Meeting the relevant design category of Buildings Research Establishment BREEAM building standard “excellent” for non- residential development.
E9. New development, both commercial and residential, is encouraged, where possible, to secure at least 10% of its total unregulated energy from decentralised and renewable or low carbon sources.
E10. Proposals for individual and community scale renewable energy will be supported subject to the considerations outlined in national policy and guidance.
 

2. Please provide feedback on the Environment & Climate Policies 11 - 20 in the Consultation draft of the Burton Bradstock Parish Plan 2020-2025:

Strongly Disagree.Disagree.No Comment.Agree.Strongly Agree.
E11. Developments, especially those required to submit a flood risk assessment should make every effort to be informed and take account of the most up- to-date predictions of flood risk and the probable impacts of climate change.
E12. Ensure that harmful chemicals are not used on any PC asset.
E13. Continue to pursue and develop the Corncrake Management Plan (including the planned 2020 review).
E14. Manage our trees minimally, pruning etc where there are real hazards but otherwise letting them flourish.
E15. Pursue more tree planting on PC land.
E16. Proposals must preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the Dorset AONB by: o being in locations that do not adversely affect the wider landscape setting. o being designed in such a way as to positively exploit the site features using form, scale materials and an architectural approach appropriate to site context.
E17. Proposals that do not preserve and enhance the AONB will be opposed.
E18.Where development may be visually prominent or adversely affect landscape character, production of a Landscape and Visual Assessment (LVIA) will be sought.
E19. Development proposals will be expected to demonstrate how they will provide a net gain in biodiversity and, where feasible, habitats and species, on the site, over and above the existing situation.
E20. If significant harm to biodiversity resulting from a development cannot be avoided (for example through locating on an alternative site with less harmful impacts), adequately mitigated, or as a last resort, compensated for, then planning permission will be opposed.

4. Please provide feedback on the Housing Policies in the Consultation draft of the Burton Bradstock Parish Plan 2020-2025:

Strongly Disagree.Disagree.No Comment.Agree.Strongly Agree.
H1. The maintenance of the current Defined Development Boundary around the Village to safeguard the landscape and character of the Parish, with the possible exception of Rural Housing Exception sites. The Parish Council sees this as vital in providing the opportunity to identify such Exception sites.
H2. Identifying and developing Affordable Housing Exception Sites. Such exception sites will be supported where the preferred mix of housing is guided by the latest Burton Bradstock Housing Needs Assessment and any subsequent changes to trends in household composition identified by the local planning authority. (Small numbers of open- market homes may be included where cross subsidy is required for delivery of the affordable housing element).
H3. The inclusion of genuinely and long term affordable housing as part of any new housing schemes. The future of the Parish’s Defined Development Boundary has yet to be determined as part of Dorset Council’s emerging Local Plan. If the Boundary is extended or if new development is permitted outside it the Parish Council would argue that a large proportion of it should be affordable, and that high local house prices support greater than the current 35% affordable housing target being achievable.
H4. The inclusion of plots for custom build and self-build homes with mains services laid in is encouraged in all larger residential development proposals, either on an individual basis or for a duly constituted self-build group to organise a collective self-build construction programme.
