Preferred Site Allocations 2018

Para 118 refers to the current loss of employment space. I have a concern that the current loss of urban office space is having a negative effect on the nature of the town centre, which is not easy to staunch.

Preferred Site Allocations 2018

The plan for business premises is of concern. The problem in this area are that the requirements for business premises are not met by the current stock of properties available. As a small office style business which needs to be near to transport links the absence of suitable accommodation has caused us to relocate to South Quays. There appears to be a view that our of area business sites are the most useful. They are not for the current type of micro and SME that is being created.

I am making comments on the plan and note the suggestion that Fords Warley and the Eagle and Child pub will both close as part of this plan. Clearly the closure of Fords is a massive blow to the area and I do hope they are relocating.

My other concerns are about the road links and car parking as a consequence of these plans. I would urge the development first of a major multi story car parkin Brentwood before the other projects run. At present it is difficult to park and any change to the level of car parking to residents is likely to have a negative impact on the High Street and surrounding areas.
The Priests Lane development has real problems in terms of road usage. The minor roads that would be the linkage are already overused and are likely to be clogged. The impact on the limited car parking in Shenfield will also need to be considered. To maximise the value of Crossrail there is a need for a multi story car parking Shenfield which should probably be on one of the Railway existing car parks. This will allow Shenfield to be the successful transport hub it needs to be. However you will also be aware of the problems with the roads around the station and main street area and this must be addressed as part of the plan. I would suggest that the multi story be built and then the main street parking bays be removed altogether.
To get buy in from the local population to this I would suggest that in the first stage the car park should be free to local residents and that a residents voucher can be obtained. However out of town users will need to pay which will subsidise the project.

Preferred Site Allocations 2018

Paragraph 116, 117, 124, 125 and Figure 21:
Paragraph 117 makes reference to the Site at Ford Offices, Eagle Way coming forward through the HELAA process as being suitable for residential development. Conversely, it also states that 2ha in Warley has been set aside for retained employment uses". Whilst it is not clear within the BBC PSA whether this relates to the Ford Site explicitly, no further explanation/evidence is provided and no other proposed sites in Warley include employment uses. Ford request BBC sufficiently evidence this requirement before the next stage of the new Local Plan is progressed.

Should the proposed housing needs within the plan period increase we consider it is important that employment needs are further increased to accord with this. Importantly employment land and job requirements should be treated as net additional requirements.

Preferred Site Allocations 2018

Representation ID: 19974

Received: 12/03/2018

Respondent: Chelmsford City Council

Representation:

CCC supports the increase in employment land allocations to meet Brentwood Borough Council's overall forecasted employments needs.

Chelmsford City Council (CCC) welcomes the opportunity to comment on Brentwood's Draft Local Plan Preferred Site Allocations to help influence the emerging document and monitor the key cross-boundary and strategic issues that affect CCC's administrative area. CCC welcomes Brentwood Borough Council's decision to adopt a higher OAHN of 380dpa in light of the latest evidence and in anticipation of MHCLG introducing a standardised approach to calculating OAHN using the 2016 household projections when published. It is noted that the provision of Gypsy and Traveller Accommodation has changed in line with the National Planning Policy for Traveller Sites (PPTS) and the Essex wide GTAA undertaken in 2017. On transit sites, CCC acknowledges the GTAA's recommendations to engage, through the Duty to Cooperate, with other Essex authorities in the future to review the need for transit sites. Further work on this is also being undertaken by Essex County Council to consider the need for these sites across Essex as a whole. CCC supports the increase in employment land allocations to meet Brentwood Borough Council's overall forecasted employments needs. Overall CCC supports Brentwood Borough Council's proposed approach to housing and employment allocations which are unlikely to have any obvious adverse cross-boundary impacts on Chelmsford. However, it is crucial that the allocations are supported by the appropriate infrastructure, in particular highway and transportation schemes due to Brentwood's location on the A12/Greater Anglia road and rail corridor. It is noted that the Draft Infrastructure Delivery Plan is a working document and transport requirements are yet to be specified. CCC expects that when the emerging Plan has progressed to Regulation 19 (expected late summer/early autumn 2018) the IDP will have been updated accordingly.
