Planning Related Arguments

Some planning-related arguments:-

  1. the LDP text admits that there is insufficient sewage capacity for all the proposed housing sites
  2. it also admits that the site suffers from surface water, so the housing would be at risk from flooding
  3. it suggests that ‘improvements’ might be required both to the B999 and the C-class road east of the development, a clear admission that this development will generate significant additional traffic.
  4. assuming each new household owns at least one car, the development would generate hundreds of additional car journeys at a time when we are supposed to be reducing carbon emissions – the text talks about ‘public transport infrastructure’, presumably jargon for ‘bus stops’, but how many new residents would really take the bus into Aberdeen every day?
