Policy CL7 part g.

 

We are concerned that part g. of draft Policy CL7 is too prescriptive.   Whilst a minimum of 1 metre top soil may be required in certain circumstances, the policy as drafted fails to recognise that there will be proposals where only part of the garden space is taken up leaving opportunities for deeper planting within the rest of the garden.  In these circumstances, a 1 metre depth of soil is not required.
