The catchment of Buxton with Lamas Primary School brings Buxton with Lamas and Brampton into a village cluster under policy 7.4. The school is currently close to capacity and is landlocked so there is limited scope for expansion. It is considered that as well as existing allocations and windfall development, approximately 40 homes is appropriate for the cluster. As well as a school, the cluster has a range of services that includes a village hall, shop and pub.
Buxton with Lamas has a neighbourhood area designated and the parish council is working on an emerging Neighbourhood Plan (at time of writing). Any applications that are submitted for development within the parish should consider the emerging neighbourhood Plan for the area, in line with paragraph 48 of the National Planning Policy Framework’).
One site is identified as a new housing allocation, providing for 40 new homes in the cluster. There is one carried forward residential allocation for 20 homes and a total of 7 additional dwellings with planning permission on small sites. This gives a total deliverable housing commitment for the cluster of 67 homes between 2018-2038.
All new and carried forward allocations are expected to address standard requirements associated with development. These vary from place to place, but are likely to include mitigations for flood risk (as well as SUDs), highways improvements, safeguarding of minerals resources, land remediation, measures to protect the environment, biodiversity, and landscape intrusion.
