Discussion Topics (introductory excerpts here only)

Engagement Strategy for Development Related Travel Plans.

Taina Peltonen for Steer Davies Gleave introduced the item. The GLA has introduced parallel two documents: guidance for Workplace Travel Planning for Development and Guidance for Residential Travel Planning in London. The guidance documents can be found on the TfL website:http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/projectsandschemes/workplacetravelplanning/7680.aspx

http://www.tfl.gov.uk/assets/downloads/corporate/Guidance-residential-travel-planning-2008.pdf

  • Whither the London Plan? John Lett.

John Lett provided an GLA officer view of the way in which the London Plan is being considered by under the new policy regime, with particular reference to housing. It is expected that the London Plan will be revised according to a timetable starting early in 2009, the plan period would be to 2031.

The Chairman suggested that the suggested Annual Planning Conference, which was supported but had not as yet been acted on could be linked to a Forum and New London Architect event in the Spring.

Immediate issues will be alterations to reflect the financial commitment to Crossrail and s.106 agreement changes to the SPG (as proposed by JLL Consultants) associated with the proposed CIL arrangements (assuming London Borough skills and resources issues can be resolved). It is intended to introduce a levy at a £20/sq ft rate to contribute to Crossrail from 2011, with the aim that this will provide £300m “over the term”.

  • The DCLG Killian Pretty Report and the DCLG review of the planning application process.

The review is concerned with a faster and more responsive system for planning applications. It was commissioned by CLG and BURR. It concentrates on applications, not the whole planning process. TT supported his presentation with slides. Engaging with stakeholders should be fair, proportionate and transparent.

Key themes:

            ?oeProportionality

            ?oeProcess

            ?oeEngagement

            ?oeCulture

            ?oeComplexity

2.Discussion Topic 1. Validation of Applications Guidance to Local Planning Authorities due to be introduced through secondary legislation on 6th April 2008, as well as the proposed new application form APP1. (In practice this topic followed the second Discussion Topic).

This item was Introduced by Mike Kiely of Tower Hamlets ALBPO Chair of the Implementation Committee and representative of the Development Managers’ Group. “Local planning authorities will be required to allow applications on the Standard Application Form from 6th April 2008 when its use will become mandatory. However, until 6th May 2008 local planning authorities will accept applications both on the Standard Application Form and on their own forms” Communities and Local Government Circular 02/2008. MK said that the form will be all things to all people, whether you are applying for a new use as a Pizzeria, a rural scheme, minerals or Terminal 5 it is the same form. He considered the form to be too long. It may be completed on line (Although as it was pointed out this aspiration may be frustrated by the inability of public bodies to handle plans electronically and so could be self defeating). In paper form it is “a nonsense” since it must cover up to 26 variations even if not all have to be answered. It is introduced by The Town and Country Planning (General Development Procedure) (Amendment) (England) Order 2008 which was published in February.

The situation is likely, said MK, to result in greater transaction costs and applications may be technically validated but with key bits missing. It requires a fundamental review even before it is introduced! Only two things are really required:

1. An expanded form of the Design and Access Statement to include proper planning analysis (This could be as a Planning, Design and Access Statement which is often what in practice is produced. - DR).

2.The other document should be an impact assessment which can cover the matters which are clearly relevant to a particular case. The 1APP arrangement does not provide a clear message and runs the risk of Judicial Review. It should be kept simple and clear.

Brian Waters opened discussion by confirming that this was a clear case of both applicants and Councils saying the same thing – that the objective is to simplify planning, whereas this will further complicate it. The impact will be uneven.

This is accretional tinkering with the system. What is needed is to be much braver to provide a different consent regime based on a single development application, supported by the necessary changes to legislation and policy material.

(Cf  Design and Consents Review http://www.communities.gov.uk/documents/planningandbuilding/pdf/322859).

Michael Coupe added furthermore that a bill is proposed for the Spring to unify the differently worded ownership requirements of local authority applications and those proposed by the State.

Graham Davis (CLG) had insisted that there should be 2 lists – a national list and a closed local list (as opposed to a local - open ended - supplement).

DR reminded the Forum of the principles of validation as set out in the legislation, now slightly amended, which for validation only requires sufficient to describe the scheme, leaving other material to be supplied once the clock has stared ticking. This fundamental is almost universally ignored by planning authorities and needs to be revived to avoid excessive unjustified demands on applicants.

Brian Waters and Mike Kiely agreed that representations should be made to the Department about the unrealism of the adopted regime now to be introduced and to urge that it be deferred to avoid further delay to the administration of applications and their determination.*

 

3. Discussion Topic 2Review of delivery of the Mayor's strategic planning policies for housing. This item was introduced by Duncan Bowie, Reader in Urban Planning and Regeneration at London Metropolitan University.

The illustrated talk was entitled Housing Targets and Outputs in London. DB was concerned about the basis of the GLA’s formally adopted density matrix with excessive emphasis on maximising output based on demand rather than need. This is now revised in the recently altered  London Plan.

MINUTES OF THE MEETING HELD ON MONDAY 11TH DECEMBER AT RIBA, 2.30pm.

AGENDA: Discussion topics:
• Review of Government Planning taking account of Kate Barker Barker's Review of Land Use Planning and Householder Development Consents Review which focuses on the link between planning and economic growth. Speakers to be agreed. (Tony Thompson of DCLG invited).

• The Economics of Climate Change. Sir Nicholas Stern’s Review, (also commissioned by the Treasury) is looking at the medium to long term economic implications of climate change and assesses approaches to tackle the issue. It is due to be issued before the meeting.
1. Introductions and Apologies; New Membership.

The Chairman thanked Miranda Housden and RIBA for arranging and hosting the event. Apologies were received from Sebastian Catovsky, who nevertheless sent his presentation and speaking notes, Alastair Gaskin, Bob Dolata, Gideon Amos, Michael Bach, Michael Edwards, and Stephen Robinson RICS. Tim Wacher explained that this was his last formal meeting as RICS representative and that Michael Edwards would attend in this capacity in future. The Chairman and meeting thanked Tim as a long standing contributor to the Forum and hoped that he would continue to attend anyway, which Tim accepted. The Chairman also said that Michael Edwards was an academic representative of RICS who also attended representing UCL so that he hoped RICS could also offer attendance from a practitioner, which Tim agreed to pursue. Martin Simmons said that Deborah Ganley: London Councils had asked to attend future meetings.

Adam Cook, Chair of Landscape Architecture SE(LASE) described the growing relationship of interrelationships between landscape and the built environment and said his membership was increasingly aware of the need to develop links with planning. At the end of the meeting having heard the discussion he and the Forum were glad to welcome LASE as a new member. The two discussion topics were taken in reverse order.

2. Discussion Topic The Economics of Climate Change.

The Chairman explained that Dr. Sebastian Catovsky, a member of the Stern Review Group, had had to withdraw at the last minute but had sent his presentation which was displayed to the meeting for the quietest session in the Forum’s history while the arguments were read by those attending.

What is the purpose of our Review? It is about the economics of climate change, taking the science as the starting point.

Climate change is an externality with a difference:

  • Global
  •  Long-term
  •  Uncertain
  •  Potentially large and irreversible

The economics is driven by the science. Science tells us that effects of green house gas emissions generate damage (an externality) which is global, long-term, uncertain and potentially very large. This is market failure on greatest scale the world has seen.

Part 1 of the Review sets out the foundations of the economics and the science.

(Two others from ALG - Deborah Ganley and Damian Price expressed interest in attending).   

2. Discussion Topic 1:  Design and access statements: How to write them and how to read them – presentation of CABE guidance by Esther Kurland followed by discussion.

Folowing the Chairman’s welcome Esther Kurland from CABE Urban Design London, currently on secondment to TfL who gave a presentation “How to write Urban Design Statements” based on material to be found on the CABE website at

http://www.rudi.net/files/How%20to%20write%20statments%20June%202006.pptOther useful associated websites are Urban Design London http://www.urbandesignlondon.com/ and Urban Design reading List for Councillors

http://www.rudi.net/files/Councillors%20reading%20list.doc

The determining source for Design Statements is Town and Country Planning (General Development Procedure) (Amendment) (England) Order 2006.The talk covered the relationship between Design and Planning and sought to answer

What are statements, Reading tips, Writing tips and A made up statement

EK quoted Lord Rooker, Planning Minister, House of Lords, Jan 04 ‘If we deliver poor design, we know that we will not deliver sustainable development’ and ‘All involved in planning must workto achieve sustainable development’  derived from the Planning and Compulsory Purchase Act 2004. This Act sets the processes and procedures for Planning.  It is the PPSs and PPGs that set the policy content and direction. General points, in summary they say:

  • Design Matters
  • Design cuts across planning policy areas
  • Design is about how places work
  • Impossible to separate planning and design

Key PPS1 policy tests:

  • Refuse designs that don’t take advantage of opportunities for improvement - positively make places better for people.
  • This should be the aim of all involved.
  • LPAs should have robust, positive design policies based on local character and objectives.
  • Have regard to ‘By Design’ (CABE. 2000) http://www.cabe.org.uk/AssetLibrary/1818.pdf

Good Design should:

  • Address the connections between people, places and access to jobs and services
  • Integrate development into the existing natural and built environment and reinforce local distinctiveness
  • Be an important part of providing successful, safe and inclusive places
  • Create places everyone can use and enjoy
  • Consider impacts on the natural environment

The appraiser should ask “is the design good enough to approve?” rather than “is it bad enough to refuse?”

The Good, the Bad, the OK?

  • PPG1 said refuse bad design
  • CABE’s 2004 Housing Audits found 61% of new homes in the South East were mediocre and 17% were good
  • The 2005 Audit showed that 70% of homes in the North were mediocre and only 6% were good
  • Now PPS1 is saying only approve good design
  • What will the audit in 5 years find? Design at a Glance Gives up to date information on national design policy This doc is available from Cabe.

Principles of Good Design

  • Character: should have its own identity
  • Continuity and enclosure: public and private should be clearly distinguished
  • Quality of public spaces: should have attractive and successful outdoor areas
  • Ease of movement: easy for everyone to get to and move through
  • Legibility: has a clear image and be easy to understand
  • Adaptability: able to change easily
  • Diversity: values difference
  • Inclusivity: for everyone, without special treatment
