The Council acknowledge there is uncertainty surrounding deliverability of existing allocations/limited opportunity within the existing built-up environment in Rye. The Council then INCREASE the housing range to 355-400.The Council accept that the redevelopment at Rock Channel is unlikely but retain as a "broad location" as an option, "but the likely yield is much reduced; it may well be nothing"(para 49 Summary Appraisal)

The Councils INSERT suggest there is scope for further existing commercial sites for mixed use, subject to detailed assessment. However, the Council does not provide the evidence of scale/nature of opportunities/assess how these employment sites might be replaced.

The Council acknowledge that "Given the environmental constraints surrounding Rye; the uncertainty surrounding the deliverability of existing allocations and limited opportunity within the existing built up environment it would be appropriate to adopt a range of housing to allow for some flexibility" The Council then proceed to INCREASE the housing range to 355-400.The Council accept that the redevelopment at Rock Channel is unlikely yet the area is still retained as a "broad location" to maintain the option, "but the likely yield is much reduced; it may well be nothing"( para 49 Rother DC Summary Appraisal)

The Councils INSERT suggest there is scope for further existing commercial sites for mixed use, subject to detailed assessment. However, the Council does not provide the evidence to confirm the scale or nature of these opportunities or assess how these employment sites might be replaced. Little to no reliance can be placed on this amendment. Its not positively prepared, unjustified and ineffective.

On behalf of my client's, owners of land off Ferry Road and Cyprus Place Rye, although the proposed text at MOD 10.1 appears generally sound, we are concerned as to whether the Council has properly evaluated the contribution my client's site and other sites can make to the delivery of Housing. The Council have received submissions for my clients sites to be considered as part of the Local Development Framework and it is unclear as to whether the Council has fully evidenced the statement made at MOD 10.1 "that there is limited opportunity within the existing built up environment".
