  • 3. 1.0 INTRODUCTION AND SCOPE 1.1 This Statement is prepared by Nathaniel Lichfield and Partners Ltd (NLP), on behalf of Capital Shopping Centres plc (CSC). 1.2 It sets out CSC’s representations in respect of Sub-matter 5B: Town Centres. 1.3 The information in this Statement duplicates that already submitted at the consultation stage in March 2006, in respect of this matter. 1.4 NLP will also be representing CSC in respect of Sub-matter 8: Central Oxfordshire, later in the programme. A separate Statement will be prepared and submitted in respect of that matter. 1.5 Section 2.0 of this Statement sets out CSC’s response to question 5B.1 raised in the Final List of Matters and Participants, issued on 12 October 2006. None of the representations made on behalf of CSC relate to matters 5B.2 or 5B.3. These specific questions are therefore not addressed. LON2006R5208-019 (South East Plan Statement Sub-matter 5B) 2
  • 4. 2.0 RESPONSE TO QUESTION 5B Introduction 2.1 This section sets out representations made by CSC in June 2006, in respect of Section D9 of the Draft for Public Consultation, published in March 2006. The representations made relate to question 5B.1 set out below for ease of reference. 5B.1 Does Section D9 Town Centres provide a clear vision and strategy for the future development of town centres in the region that is consistent with the rest of the RSS (for retail and other town centre uses)? Specifically, is the role of regional Hubs properly reflected in the network of town centres and is the selection of centres soundly based (Policy TC2)? 2.2 CSC welcomes the objectives of Section D9 and, in particular, its support for town centres as the focal point for development of leisure, services, retail, residential and commercial uses. 2.3 CSC supports the definition of Oxford as a Primary Regional Centre within Policy TC2. 2.4 CSC considers that greater emphasis should be given in the Introduction to Section D9 to the importance of retailing, leisure and tourism to the South East economy, thereby setting the strategic context for what follows in this Section. The following addition is therefore proposed for insertion after paragraph 1.2: “Retail, leisure and tourism are important sectors in the South East Economy. Maintaining competitiveness within these sectors will be a key factor in generating spending, both from internal and external sources, and retaining a competitive and dynamic regional economy. Successfully sustaining the growth of the retail economy, focussing on investment in town centres, will be vital to achieving the objectives of the South East Plan.” 2.5 It is considered that Paragraph 1.35, relating to Sub-Regional Strategy Area 7 (Central Oxfordshire), addresses new development in Oxford in a negative way. Whilst accepting that the City is spatially and physically constrained, there are opportunities for new development through recycling and intensifying the use of land in a way that deals sensitively with the rich cultural heritage of the City.

  • 5. the draft plan (Section E7 – paragraph 2.11), recognition is given to the significant potential for new mixed use development in the West End area of Oxford. The following addition to Paragraph 1.35 is therefore sought: “Sub-regional Strategy Area 7: Central Oxfordshire (Oxford): The economic importance of the Oxford City Centre to the sub-region should be supported through new investment, focussing on redevelopment and intensification of existing developed land. Elsewhere, priorities for support …” LON2006R5208-019 (South East Plan Statement Sub-matter 5B) 3
