We largely support the Council's assessment of employment land need although further assessment is required through the IDP in relation to employment typologies which appear to be largely traditional in nature. The allocation of a new garden village affords an opportunity to be more innovative in the identification of employment land need and supply.

The Promoters support the economic aims and Strategic Priorities of the Plan. These contain an understanding of the contribution which Brentwood borough as a whole can make to the economic prosperity of the UK and the more immediate area in south Essex. The assessments, which include the evidence base contained in the final report of 'Brentwood Economic Futures 2013-2033 prepared by Lichfields and dated January 2018 confirms at Fig 4 and paragraph 4.12 that in all scenarios assessed for the borough as a whole the draft Local Plan will ensure a surplus of land for B1c/B2 and B8 uses but may see a shortage to meet future B1a/b requirements.
In our view, the employment land needs require some further assessment particularly taking account of the opportunities for innovative provision of space at DHGV.

Figure 21 outlines a forecast employment land requirement of between 33.76ha to 45.96ha. Paragraph 124 continues to state that in total, a potential new employment land requirement of c.47.39ha (excluding the Ford Site) - resulting in a surplus of +1.43ha. As such, with the new employment allocations alone, BBC have a sufficient supply of employment land to meets its overall forecast needs over the plan Period. Therefore, Ford challenges the retention of any level of employment use at Sites 117A and 117B. Ford objects to the inclusion of employment uses within the draft allocation for the Site.
