Draft Local Plan
This vision describes the type of place we want the Borough to be in the Plan period and beyond.
Brentwood Borough will continue to be a thriving, attractive and unique destination for people to live, work and visit by protecting and nurturing its existing high quality environment, growing its prosperous local economy and fostering development which is responsive to local community needs.
Outstanding leisure opportunities and high- quality greenspaces such as Thorndon and Weald Country Parks will continue to be a significant attraction. Brentwood Town Centre will expand its focus for niche shopping, quality employment, exciting cultural opportunities and super connectivity into London via Crossrail. This combined with surrounding attractive countryside and villages will continue to make the Borough a destination of choice.
Brentwood will grow sustainably with new development directed to locations best served by local services and facilities to help further improve existing and new residents' quality of life. This will be achieved by realising opportunities to enhance the quality and character of places and provision of facilities, and minimising the negative impacts of development on people, the environment and resources.
