As the masterplan for the redevelopment of the West Horndon site has developed, the provision of specialist housing for Senior Citizens has not formed part of the discussions with residents, the Parish Council or officers, so seeing this as a commitment in the draft local plan is premature. However, Hermes would welcome discussions in future, so the implications can be understood prior to making a commitment in the local plan.

Figure 12 - It would appear that most of the areas identified for Registered Care are reasonably well located in terms of access to bus services, which is positive. Similar attention to detail should be employed when considering the locating of affordable homes, which are another group that proportionally tend to rely more heavily on bus services.

I would like to stress one particular point, in that, there are a great many people of pensionable age who would like to move from their own homes to retirement living and there are simply not enough builds of this sort in the Brentwood area to allow it. This sort of accommodation should be high on your list of new housing.

Having looked through your on-line information, I would like to stress one particular point, in that, there are a great many people of pensionable age who would like to move from their own homes to retirement living and there are simply not enough builds of this sort in the Brentwood area to allow it. My own experience of moving 18 months ago was that I did not own one of the more expensive houses in Shenfield, but even so, there was nowhere I could move to within Shenfield/Billericay/Brentwood at an affordable price and so, luckily, I found a flat at x (address), residential flats for over 60's. This would not have been my first choice but it is actually ideal and I would like this sort of accommodation to be high on your list of new housing - it should also be kept in mind that in addition this releases larger, older, existing properties and maybe the number of new builds could then be lessened. It makes sense and with GOOD planning, may make the need to swallow up our fields and open spaces less likely. I would also like to say that an improvement on the type of shops in Brentwood would be a great advantage. At the moment we have so very few shops of quality and if we had, this would enhance the quality of the high street in general - which, by the way, would also benefit from cleaning. In short, whatever your plan, please give more thought to the existing residents, doctor and hospital facilities, which at the moment are woeful, schools and traffic all of which will be made unbearable by the addition of new housing with all that brings.
