Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 1: POLICY R01 - Dunton Hills Garden Village Strategic Allocation. The allocation should be further increased and the delivery programme accelerated in order to remove policies R25 and R26 from the LDP
A - I agree - Dunton Hills can accommodate the houses planned for Blackmore

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 2: POLICY R18 - Land off Crescent Drive, Shenfield. Brownfield. (Less than 1% of total responses, March 2019)Brownfield sites should be prioritised over Greenfield, and Green Belt should not be released at all unless all other alternatives have been used to fulfil the target housing allocations. The number of homes should be increased back to a minimum of 55 and R25 & R26 should be removed entirely.
A - I agree

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 3: POLICY R19 - Land at Priests Lane, Shenfield.(11% of total responses, March 2019). Defined as: Greenfield Land within Brentwood urban area / Settlement boundary. This is a site surrounded by existing housing, on a main road, and next to a railway line. This site is more suitable for residential development than more remote locations (EG Policies R25 and R26) and therefore should be built on before remote locations.
A - I agree - we should prioritise building on sites with, or close to, existing infrastructure.

R25
Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART A POLICY R25 - Land North of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (36% of total responses, March 2019). To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 5 - All comments apply to both sites. Greenfield/Green Belt land in a remote village location with inadequate infrastructure. The number of houses has been reduced by 10. For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site should be withdrawn completely from the LDP. A reduction of 10 houses does not change fundamental problems - in particular the infrastructure and services of the historically significant Blackmore Village will not support this scale of development.
A - I agree - the site should be removed from the LDP.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART B The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed.
A - I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from the LDP.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART C At the time of the Addendum, a large number of developments (not included within the LDP) are in various stages of progress. These will further degrade the infrastructure of Blackmore. In particular, there has been inadequate consultation and strategic planning between Brentwood and Epping Forest Councils, with EFDC considering/consenting to; 30 houses are currently under construction in Fingrith Hall Lane (1km from the Village) An additional 5 houses are going through planning in Fingrith Hall Lane There are other EFDC 'infill sites' in Nine Ashes (1km away) Within metres of the village there will be at least 10 large dwellings at Ashlings Farm (the entrance development within Blackmore Parish).
A - I agree - There has been inadequate consultation and sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP.


Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART D Also within Brentwood running through the normal planning process is: Redrose Farm (12 dwellings) on a Brownfield site (see R26 comments) 5 starter units in Spriggs Lane - Approved; PP being sought/appealed in Spriggs Lane/Chelmsford Road, (9 dwellings) and any number of other Greenfield sites/opportunistic PPs sought by farmers and land owners. R25 and R26 should be completely removed from the LDP, as the pre-existing and future normal infill (and windfall) in the Blackmore area means this Village has more than shouldered the appropriate housing burden, which will already overwhelm our very limited resources and wholly inadequate infrastructure.
A - I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART C SOUNDNESS AND HOUSING NEED: In the Addendum, sites R25 and R26 (c50 dwellings) equate to 49% of Green Belt release in 'larger villages'. Brentwood and Shenfield urban areas are identified as having the highest housing need, yet two sites (R18 and R19) have now had their allocations reduced. Blackmore remains classified as a 'Category 3' settlement ('larger village'). Our population numbers are much lower than many other villages in this category - which have sufficient infrastructure and resources that Blackmore lacks. Blackmore is Green Belt and there is no identified need for additional housing on the scale proposed.
A - I agree - the allocation in Blackmore is disproportionate and unsound.

Q - CONCLUSION: Taking all the above factors into account, I am opposed to building on the Green Belt, and that sites R25 and R26 should be withdrawn from the LDP.
A - Strongly agree

R26
Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 5: PART A POLICY R26 - Land North of Orchard Piece, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (37% of total responses, March 2019 - ie grand total 73% across R25 and R26)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 4 (above). All comments apply to both sites. Redrose Farm is a Brownfield redevelopment opportunity (opposite R26) for 12 homes, and it will deliver part of our own Village plan as opposed to digging up Green Belt land. It should therefore replace R26 in its entirety.
A - I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm).

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART B The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed.
A - I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from the LDP.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART C At the time of the Addendum, a large number of developments (not included within the LDP) are in various stages of progress.

A - I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP.


Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART B R26 is also Greenfield/Green Belt, and development is undesirable in the context of better/alternative sites, both within the Village/Parish and the wider Brentwood Council area. A site that was in the LDP (from Jan 2015 - November 2018, when it was withdrawn) is Honeypot Lane (Ref was 022). Identified as 'Green Belt land - edge of Brentwood Urban Area' - an eminently better near town centre site surrounded by existing housing and would provide c200 units. It should be reinstated as this would allow R18, R19, R25 and R26 to be completely removed whilst not adding to the burden on R01.
A - I agree - the Honeypot Lane site should be reinstated.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART C SOUNDNESS AND HOUSING NEED: In the Addendum, sites R25 and R26 (c50 dwellings) equate to 49% of Green Belt release in 'larger villages'.

March 2019)Brownfield sites should be prioritised over Greenfield,
and Green Belt should not be released at all unless all other
alternatives have been used to fulfil the target housing allocations.
The number of homes should be increased back to a minimum of
55 and R25 & R26 should be removed entirely.
I agree
Q6 FOCUSSED CHANGE 3: POLICY R19 - Land at Priests Lane,
Shenfield.(11% of total responses, March 2019)Defined as:
Greenfield Land within Brentwood urban area / Settlement

of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (36% of
total responses, March 2019)To be read in conjunction with
Focussed Change 5 - All comments apply to both
sites.Greenfield/Green Belt land in a remote village location with
inadequate infrastructure. The number of houses has been
reduced by 10. For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site
should be withdrawn completely from the LDP. A reduction of 10
houses does not change fundamental problems - in particular the
infrastructure and services of the historically significant Blackmore
Village will not support this scale of development.
I agree - the site should be removed from the
LDP
,
The infrastructure in the village is only just adequate at this time and
would not be sufficient if further houses were built.
COMMENT: :
Q8 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART BThe sites proposed are
developer led and still have not been properly assessed against
local housing needs.These sites should be removed.
I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from
the LDP
Q9 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART CAt the time of the
Addendum, a large number of developments (not included within
the LDP) are in various stages of progress. These will further
degrade the infrastructure of Blackmore. In particular, there has
been inadequate consultation and strategic planning between
Brentwood and Epping Forest Councils, with EFDC
considering/consenting to; 30 houses are currently under
construction in Fingrith Hall Lane (1km from the Village) An
additional 5 houses are going through planning in Fingrith Hall
Lane There are other EFDC 'infill sites' in Nine Ashes (1km away)
Within metres of the village there will be at least 10 large dwellings
at Ashlings Farm (the entrance development within Blackmore
Parish).
I agree - There has been inadequate consultation and sites R25
and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q10 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART DAlso within Brentwood
running through the normal planning process is: Redrose Farm (12
dwellings) on a Brownfield site (see R26 comments) 5 starter units
in Spriggs Lane - Approved; PP being sought/appealed in Spriggs
Lane/Chelmsford Road, (9 dwellings) and any number of other
Greenfield sites/opportunistic PPs sought by farmers and land
owners. R25 and R26 should be completely removed from the
LDP, as the pre-existing and future normal infill (and windfall) in the
Blackmore area means this Village has more than shouldered the
appropriate housing burden, which will already overwhelm our very
limited resources and wholly inadequate infrastructure.
I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the
LDP
Q11 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5: PART APOLICY R26 - Land North
of Orchard Piece, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (37% of
total responses, March 2019 - ie grand total 73% across R25 and
R26)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 4 (above).
All comments apply to both sites. Redrose Farm is a Brownfield
redevelopment opportunity (opposite R26) for 12 homes, and it will
deliver part of our own Village plan as opposed to digging up
Green Belt land. It should therefore replace R26 in its entirety.
I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield
should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm)
Q12 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART BR26 is also
Greenfield/Green Belt, and development is undesirable in the
context of better/alternative sites, both within the Village/Parish and
the wider Brentwood Council area.A site that was in the LDP (from
Jan 2015 - November 2018, when it was withdrawn) is Honeypot

Brentwood Urban Area' - an eminently better near town centre site
surrounded by existing housing and would provide c200 units. It
should be reinstated as this would allow R18, R19, R25 and R26 to
be completely removed whilst not adding to the burden on R01
I agree - the Honeypot Lane site should be reinstated.

Q13 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART CSOUNDNESS AND
HOUSING NEED: In the Addendum, sites R25 and R26 (c50
dwellings) equate to 49% of Green Belt release in 'larger
villages'. Brentwood and Shenfield urban areas are identified as
having the highest housing need, yet two sites (R18 and R19) have
now had their allocations reduced. Blackmore remains classified as
a 'Category 3' settlement ('larger village'). Our population numbers
are much lower than many other villages in this category - which
have sufficient infrastructure and resources that Blackmore
lacks.Blackmore is Green Belt and there is no identified need for
additional housing on the scale proposed.
I agree - the allocation in Blackmore is disproportionate and
unsound

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 3: POLICY R19 - Land at Priests Lane, Shenfield.(11% of total responses, March 2019). Defined as: Greenfield Land within Brentwood urban area / Settlement boundary. This is a site surrounded by existing housing, on a main road, and next to a railway line. This site is more suitable for residential development than more remote locations (EG Policies R25 and R26) and therefore should be built on before remote locations.
A - I agree - we should prioritise building on sites with, or close to, existing infrastructure. Placing new housing in an area with existing adequate infrastructure should be prioritised over areas with inadequate infrastructure.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART A POLICY R25 - Land North of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (36% of total responses, March 2019). To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 5 - All comments apply to both sites. Greenfield/Green Belt land in a remote village location with inadequate infrastructure. The number of houses has been reduced by 10. For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site should be withdrawn completely from the LDP. A reduction of 10 houses does not change fundamental problems - in particular the infrastructure and services of the historically significant Blackmore Village will not support this scale of development.
A - I agree - the site should be removed from the LDP.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART B The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed.
A - I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from the LDP.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART C At the time of the Addendum, a large number of developments (not included within the LDP) are in various stages of progress. These will further degrade the infrastructure of Blackmore. In particular, there has been inadequate consultation and strategic planning between Brentwood and Epping Forest Councils, with EFDC considering/consenting to; 30 houses are currently under construction in Fingrith Hall Lane (1km from the Village) An additional 5 houses are going through planning in Fingrith Hall Lane There are other EFDC 'infill sites' in Nine Ashes (1km away) Within metres of the village there will be at least 10 large dwellings at Ashlings Farm (the entrance development within Blackmore Parish).
A - I agree - There has been inadequate consultation and sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART D Also within Brentwood running through the normal planning process is: Redrose Farm (12 dwellings) on a Brownfield site (see R26 comments) 5 starter units in Spriggs Lane - Approved; PP being sought/appealed in Spriggs Lane/Chelmsford Road, (9 dwellings) and any number of other Greenfield sites/opportunistic PPs sought by farmers and land owners. R25 and R26 should be completely removed from the LDP, as the pre-existing and future normal infill (and windfall) in the Blackmore area means this Village has more than shouldered the appropriate housing burden, which will already overwhelm our very limited resources and wholly inadequate infrastructure.
A - I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 5: PART A POLICY R26 - Land North of Orchard Piece, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (37% of total responses, March 2019 - ie grand total 73% across R25 and R26)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 4 (above). All comments apply to both sites. Redrose Farm is a Brownfield redevelopment opportunity (opposite R26) for 12 homes, and it will
deliver part of our own Village plan as opposed to digging up Green Belt land. It should therefore replace R26 in its entirety.
A - I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm). The use of Green Belt land for housing should only be considered when brownfield land has been exhausted.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART B R26 is also Greenfield/Green Belt, and development is undesirable in the context of better/alternative sites, both within the Village/Parish and the wider Brentwood Council area.A site that was in the LDP (from Jan 2015 - November 2018, when it was withdrawn) is Honeypot Lane (Ref was 022). Identified as 'Green Belt land - edge of Brentwood Urban Area' - an eminently better near town centre site surrounded by existing housing and would provide c200 units. It should be reinstated as this would allow R18, R19, R25 and R26 to be completely removed whilst not adding to the burden on R01.
A - I agree - the Honeypot Lane site should be reinstated.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART C SOUNDNESS AND HOUSING NEED: In the Addendum, sites R25 and R26 (c50 dwellings) equate to 49% of Green Belt release in 'larger villages'. Brentwood and Shenfield urban areas are identified as having the highest housing need, yet two sites (R18 and R19) have now had their allocations reduced. Blackmore remains classified as a 'Category 3' settlement ('larger village'). Our population numbers are much lower than many other villages in this category - which have sufficient infrastructure and resources that Blackmore lacks. Blackmore is Green Belt and there is no identified need for additional housing on the scale proposed.
A - I agree - the allocation in Blackmore is disproportionate and unsound.

Q - CONCLUSION: Taking all the above factors into account, I am opposed to building on the Green Belt, and that sites R25 and R26 should be withdrawn from the LDP.
A - Strongly agree.

R25 and R26 should be completely removed from the LDP, as the pre-existing and future normal infill (and windfall) in the Blackmore area means this Village has more than shouldered the appropriate housing burden, which will already overwhelm our very limited resources and wholly inadequate infrastructure.
I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q11 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5: PART APOLICY R26 - Land North of Orchard Piece, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (37% of total responses, March 2019 - ie grand total 73% across R25 and R26)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 4 (above). All comments apply to both sites. Redrose Farm is a Brownfield redevelopment opportunity (opposite R26) for 12 homes, and it will deliver part of our own Village plan as opposed to digging up Green Belt land. It should therefore replace R26 in its entirety.
I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm)
Q12 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART BR26 is also Greenfield/Green Belt, and development is undesirable in the context of better/alternative sites, both within the Village/Parish and the wider Brentwood Council area .A site that was in the LDP (from Jan 2015 - November 2018, when it was withdrawn) is Honeypot Lane (Ref was 022). Identified as 'Green Belt land - edge of Brentwood Urban Area' - an eminently better near town centre site surrounded by existing housing and would provide c200 units. It should be reinstated as this would allow R18, R19, R25 and R26 to be completely removed whilst not adding to the burden on R01
I agree - the Honeypot Lane site should be Reinstated
Q13 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 -PART C SOUNDNESS and HOUSING NEED: In the Addendum, sites R25 and R26 (c50 dwellings) equate to 49% of Green Belt release in 'larger villages'. Brentwood and Shenfield urban areas are identified as having the highest housing need, yet two sites (R18 and R19) have now had their allocations reduced. Blackmore remains classified as a 'Category 3' settlement ('larger village'). Our population numbers are much lower than many other villages in this category - which have sufficient infrastructure and resources that Blackmore lacks. Blackmore is Green Belt and there is no identified need for additional housing on the scale proposed.
I agree - the allocation in Blackmore is disproportionate and unsound
Q14 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Please use this space for any further comments you wish to record.
Respondent skipped this question
Q15 CONCLUSION: Taking all the above factors into account, I am opposed to building on the Green Belt, and that sites R25 and R26 should be withdrawn from the LDP.
Strongly agree

Yes
Q4 FOCUSSED CHANGE 1: POLICY R01 - Dunton Hills Garden Village Strategic Allocation. The allocation should be further increased and the delivery programme accelerated in order to remove policies R25 and R26 from the LDP
I agree - Dunton Hills can accommodate the houses planned for Blackmore
Q5 FOCUSSED CHANGE 2: POLICY R18 - Land off Crescent Drive, Shenfield. Brownfield. (Less than 1% of total responses, March 2019)Brownfield sites should be prioritised over Greenfield, and Green Belt should not be released at all unless all other alternatives have been used to fulfil the target housing allocations. The number of homes should be increased back to a minimum of 55 and R25 & R26 should be removed entirely.
I agree
Q6 FOCUSSED CHANGE 3: POLICY R19 - Land at Priests Lane, Shenfield.(11% of total responses, March 2019)Defined as: Greenfield Land within Brentwood urban area / Settlement boundary. This is a site surrounded by existing housing, on a main road, and next to a railway line. This site is more suitable for residential development than more remote locations (EG Policies R25 and R26) and therefore should be built on before remote locations.
I agree - we should prioritise building on sites with, or close to, existing infrastructure
Q7 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART APOLICY R25 - Land North of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (36% of total responses, March 2019)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 5 - All comments apply to both sites. Greenfield/Green Belt land in a remote village location with inadequate infrastructure. The number of houses has been reduced by 10. For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site should be withdrawn completely from the LDP. A reduction of 10 houses does not change fundamental problems - in particular the infrastructure and services of the historically significant Blackmore Village will not support this scale of development.
I agree - the site should be removed from the LDP
Q8 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART B. The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed. I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from the LDP
Q9 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART C. At the time of the Addendum, a large number of developments (not included within the LDP) are in various stages of progress. These will further degrade the infrastructure of Blackmore. In particular, there has been inadequate consultation and strategic planning between Brentwood and Epping Forest Councils, with EFDC considering/consenting to; 30 houses are currently under construction in Fingrith Hall Lane (1km from the Village) An additional 5 houses are going through planning in Fingrith Hall Lane There are other EFDC 'infill sites' in Nine Ashes (1km away) Within metres of the village there will be at least 10 large dwellings at Ashlings Farm (the entrance development within Blackmore
Parish).
I agree - There has been inadequate consultation and sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q10 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART D.

Q3 DATA PROTECTION (CONT.):I also confirm that I consent to share my representations and personal contact details, as above, from the previous Regulation 19 Consultation in February/March 2019Declaration: I hereby consent to share this information as above.
Yes
Q4 FOCUSSED CHANGE 1: POLICY R01 - Dunton Hills Garden Village Strategic Allocation. The allocation should be further increased and the delivery programme accelerated in order to remove policies R25 and R26 from the LDP
I agree - Dunton Hills can accommodate the houses planned for Blackmore
Q5 FOCUSSED CHANGE 2: POLICY R18 - Land off Crescent Drive, Shenfield. Brownfield. (Less than 1% of total responses, March 2019)Brownfield sites should be prioritised over Greenfield, and Green Belt should not be released at all unless all other alternatives have been used to fulfil the target housing allocations. The number of homes should be increased back to a minimum of 55 and R25 & R26 should be removed entirely.
I agree
Q6 FOCUSSED CHANGE 3: POLICY R19 - Land at Priests Lane, Shenfield.(11% of total responses, March 2019)Defined as: Greenfield Land within Brentwood urban area / Settlement boundary. This is a site surrounded by existing housing, on a main road, and next to a railway line. This site is more suitable for residential development than more remote locations (EG Policies R25 and R26) and therefore should be built on before remote locations.
I agree - we should prioritise building on sites with, or close to, existing infrastructure
Q7 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART APOLICY R25 - Land North of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (36% of total responses, March 2019)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 5 - All comments apply to both sites. Greenfield/Green Belt land in a remote village location with inadequate infrastructure. The number of houses has been reduced by 10. For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site should be withdrawn completely from the LDP. A reduction of 10 houses does not change fundamental problems - in particular the infrastructure and services of the historically significant Blackmore Village will not support this scale of development.
I agree - the site should be removed from the LDP
Q8 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART B. The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed. I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from the LDP
Q9 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART C. At the time of the Addendum, a large number of developments (not included within the LDP) are in various stages of progress. These will further degrade the infrastructure of Blackmore. In particular, there has been inadequate consultation and strategic planning between Brentwood and Epping Forest Councils, with EFDC considering/consenting to; 30 houses are currently under construction in Fingrith Hall Lane (1km from the Village) An additional 5 houses are going through planning in Fingrith Hall Lane There are other EFDC 'infill sites' in Nine Ashes (1km away) Within metres of the village there will be at least 10 large dwellings at Ashlings Farm (the entrance development within Blackmore
Parish).
I agree - There has been inadequate consultation and sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q10 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART D. Also within Brentwood running through the normal planning process is: Redrose Farm (12 dwellings) on a Brownfield site (see R26 comments) 5 starter units in Spriggs Lane - Approved; PP being sought/appealed in Spriggs Lane/Chelmsford Road, (9 dwellings) and any number of other Greenfield sites/opportunistic PPs sought by farmers and land owners. R25 and R26 should be completely removed from the LDP, as the pre-existing and future normal infill (and windfall) in the Blackmore area means this Village has more than shouldered the appropriate housing burden, which will already overwhelm our very limited resources and wholly inadequate infrastructure.
I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q11 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5: PART APOLICY R26 - Land North of Orchard Piece, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (37% of total responses, March 2019 - ie grand total 73% across R25 and R26)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 4 (above). All comments apply to both sites. Redrose Farm is a Brownfield redevelopment opportunity (opposite R26) for 12 homes, and it will deliver part of our own Village plan as opposed to digging up Green Belt land. It should therefore replace R26 in its entirety.
I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm)
Q12 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART BR26 is also Greenfield/Green Belt, and development is undesirable in the context of better/alternative sites, both within the Village/Parish and the wider Brentwood Council area .A site that was in the LDP (from Jan 2015 - November 2018, when it was withdrawn) is Honeypot Lane (Ref was 022). Identified as 'Green Belt land - edge of Brentwood Urban Area' - an eminently better near town centre site surrounded by existing housing and would provide c200 units. It should be reinstated as this would allow R18, R19, R25 and R26 to be completely removed whilst not adding to the burden on R01
I agree - the Honeypot Lane site should be Reinstated
Q13 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 -PART C SOUNDNESS and HOUSING NEED: In the Addendum, sites R25 and R26 (c50 dwellings) equate to 49% of Green Belt release in 'larger villages'. Brentwood and Shenfield urban areas are identified as having the highest housing need, yet two sites (R18 and R19) have now had their allocations reduced. Blackmore remains classified as a 'Category 3' settlement ('larger village'). Our population numbers are much lower than many other villages in this category - which have sufficient infrastructure and resources that Blackmore lacks. Blackmore is Green Belt and there is no identified need for additional housing on the scale proposed.
I agree - the allocation in Blackmore is disproportionate and unsound
Q14 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Please use this space for any further comments you wish to record.

Q15 CONCLUSION: Taking all the above factors into account, I am opposed to building on the Green Belt, and that sites R25 and R26 should be withdrawn from the LDP.
Strongly agree

I agree. These sites are next to existing housing and have the infrastructure and
roads needed to access them. Increasing the density also makes sense.

A reduction of 10 houses does not change fundamental problems - in particular the infrastructure and services of the historically significant Blackmore Village will not support this scale of development.
I agree - the site should be removed from the LDP. The infrastructure and resources in Blackmore (eg parking out side the
CoOp) are already overstretched and additional vehicle movements will
create traffic jams and increase accident risk
Q8 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART B. The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed. I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from the LDP

It should therefore replace R26 in its entirety.
I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm). There has been a total disconnect between the LDP, and ongoing "normal" planning processes. You cannot create an LDP without looking
at all other development opportunities
Q12 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART BR26 is also Greenfield/Green Belt, and development is undesirable in the context of better/alternative sites, both within the Village/Parish and the wider Brentwood Council area .A site that was in the LDP (from Jan 2015 - November 2018, when it was withdrawn) is Honeypot Lane (Ref was 022).

In particular, there has been inadequate consultation and strategic planning between Brentwood and Epping Forest Councils, with EFDC considering/consenting to; 30 houses are currently under construction in Fingrith Hall Lane (1km from the Village) An additional 5 houses are going through planning in Fingrith Hall Lane There are other EFDC 'infill sites' in Nine Ashes (1km away) Within metres of the village there will be at least 10 large dwellings at Ashlings Farm (the entrance development within Blackmore
Parish).
I agree - There has been inadequate consultation and sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q10 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART D. Also within Brentwood running through the normal planning process is: Redrose Farm (12 dwellings) on a Brownfield site (see R26 comments) 5 starter units in Spriggs Lane - Approved; PP being sought/appealed in Spriggs Lane/Chelmsford Road, (9 dwellings) and any number of other Greenfield sites/opportunistic PPs sought by farmers and land owners. R25 and R26 should be completely removed from the LDP, as the pre-existing and future normal infill (and windfall) in the Blackmore area means this Village has more than shouldered the appropriate housing burden, which will already overwhelm our very limited resources and wholly inadequate infrastructure.
I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q11 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5: PART APOLICY R26 - Land North of Orchard Piece, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (37% of total responses, March 2019 - ie grand total 73% across R25 and R26)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 4 (above). All comments apply to both sites. Redrose Farm is a Brownfield redevelopment opportunity (opposite R26) for 12 homes, and it will deliver part of our own Village plan as opposed to digging up Green Belt land. It should therefore replace R26 in its entirety.
I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm)
Q12 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART BR26 is also Greenfield/Green Belt, and development is undesirable in the context of better/alternative sites, both within the Village/Parish and the wider Brentwood Council area .A site that was in the LDP (from Jan 2015 - November 2018, when it was withdrawn) is Honeypot Lane (Ref was 022). Identified as 'Green Belt land - edge of Brentwood Urban Area' - an eminently better near town centre site surrounded by existing housing and would provide c200 units. It should be reinstated as this would allow R18, R19, R25 and R26 to be completely removed whilst not adding to the burden on R01
I agree - the Honeypot Lane site should be Reinstated
Q13 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 -PART C SOUNDNESS and HOUSING NEED: In the Addendum, sites R25 and R26 (c50 dwellings) equate to 49% of Green Belt release in 'larger villages'. Brentwood and Shenfield urban areas are identified as having the highest housing need, yet two sites (R18 and R19) have now had their allocations reduced. Blackmore remains classified as a 'Category 3' settlement ('larger village'). Our population numbers are much lower than many other villages in this category - which have sufficient infrastructure and resources that Blackmore lacks. Blackmore is Green Belt and there is no identified need for additional housing on the scale proposed.
I agree - the allocation in Blackmore is disproportionate and unsound
Q14 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Please use this space for any further comments you wish to record.
Respondent skipped this question
Q15 CONCLUSION: Taking all the above factors into account, I am opposed to building on the Green Belt, and that sites R25 and R26 should be withdrawn from the LDP.
Strongly agree

Q4 FOCUSSED CHANGE 1: POLICY R01 - Dunton Hills Garden Village Strategic Allocation The allocation should be further increased and the delivery programme accelerated in order to remove policies R25 and R26 from the LDP
I agree - Dunton Hills can accommodate the houses planned for Blackmore
Q5 FOCUSSED CHANGE 2: POLICY R18 - Land off Crescent Drive, Shenfield. Brownfield. (Less than 1% of total responses, March 2019)Brownfield sites should be prioritised over Greenfield, and Green Belt should not be released at all unless all other alternatives have been used to fulfil the target housing allocations. The number of homes should be increased back to a minimum of 55 and R25 & R26 should be removed entirely.
I agree
Q6 FOCUSSED CHANGE 3: POLICY R19 - Land at Priests Lane, Shenfield.(11% of total responses, March 2019)Defined as: Greenfield Land within Brentwood urban area / Settlement boundary. This is a site surrounded by existing housing, on a main road, and next to a railway line. This site is more suitable for residential development than more remote locations (EG Policies R25 and R26) and therefore should be built on before remote locations.
I agree - we should prioritise building on sites with, or close to, existing infrastructure
Q7 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART APOLICY R25 - Land North of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (36% of total responses, March 2019)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 5 - All comments apply to both sites. Greenfield/Green Belt land in a remote village location with inadequate infrastructure. The number of houses has been reduced by 10. For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site should be withdrawn completely from the LDP. A reduction of 10 houses does not change fundamental problems - in particular the infrastructure and services of the historically significant Blackmore Village will not support this scale of development.
I agree - the site should be removed from the LDP
Q8 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART B. The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed. I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from the LDP

The current parking at Fingrith Hall Road is already maximised - and in fact quite dangerous at times - further building will only make the situation worse. The school and doctors are already at capacity. The development at Norton Heath will affect us. The infrastructure cannot cope with the additional homes and in particular Red Rose Lane is an ancient, historical lane, will be ruined.
Q15 CONCLUSION: Taking all the above factors into account, I am opposed to building on the Green Belt, and that sites R25 and R26 should be withdrawn from the LDP.

Dunton Hills Garden Village Strategic Allocation The allocation should be further increased and the delivery programme accelerated in order to remove policies R25 and R26 from the LDP

Change suggested by respondent:

Remove R25 and R26 from the Plan. The LDP, in so far as the 2 Blackmore sites are concerned, was never written strategically and indeed prior to Reg 18 the BBC position was the correct position i,e, R25 and R26 are wholly inappropriate for development. We therefore need to reverse out of Regs 18 and 19 and return us to the correct position as stated in January 2016.

Q4 FOCUSSED CHANGE 1: POLICY R01 - Dunton Hills Garden Village Strategic Allocation The allocation should be further increased and the delivery programme accelerated in order to remove policies R25 and R26 from the LDP
I agree - Dunton Hills can accommodate the houses planned for Blackmore
Q5 FOCUSSED CHANGE 2: POLICY R18 - Land off Crescent Drive, Shenfield. Brownfield. (Less than 1% of total responses, March 2019)Brownfield sites should be prioritised over Greenfield, and Green Belt should not be released at all unless all other alternatives have been used to fulfil the target housing allocations. The number of homes should be increased back to a minimum of 55 and R25 & R26 should be removed entirely.
I agree. The density on this site needs to be increased to NPPF advised levels. As you will note from the number of people who responded in February-March 2019 it seems incongruous that numbers on a Brownfield site should ever have been considered for a reduction.
Q6 FOCUSSED CHANGE 3: POLICY R19 - Land at Priests Lane, Shenfield.(11% of total responses, March 2019)Defined as: Greenfield Land within Brentwood urban area / Settlement boundary. This is a site surrounded by existing housing, on a main road, and next to a railway line. This site is more suitable for residential development than more remote locations (EG Policies R25 and R26) and therefore should be built on before remote locations.
I agree - we should prioritise building on sites with, or close to, existing infrastructure. This is a residential area with appropriate infrastructure that will accommodate at least the original number of 75 allocated to Priests Lane.
Q7 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART APOLICY R25 - Land North of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (36% of total responses, March 2019)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 5 - All comments apply to both sites. Greenfield/Green Belt land in a remote village location with inadequate infrastructure. The number of houses has been reduced by 10. For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site should be withdrawn completely from the LDP. A reduction of 10 houses does not change fundamental problems - in particular the infrastructure and services of the historically significant Blackmore Village will not support this scale of development.
I agree - the site should be removed from the LDP. Blackmore Village is the most "special" of all the villages in Brentwood "Borough of villages". The infrastructure in this historic village was originally built for horse and cart travel, and modern vehicle numbers already mean that the centre of the village is severely congested. Adding an additional approximate 1,000 vehicle movements per day (adding up all proposed development in and around the village) will mean a massive risk to public safety, and the ability for existing residents to get in and out of the village. The flood risk attaching to sites R25 and R26 will be further increased by concreting over greenfield/Green Belt land.
Q8 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART B. The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed. I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from the LDP
Q9 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART C. At the time of the Addendum, a large number of developments (not included within the LDP) are in various stages of progress. These will further degrade the infrastructure of Blackmore. In particular, there has been inadequate consultation and strategic planning between Brentwood and Epping Forest Councils, with EFDC considering/consenting to; 30 houses are currently under construction in Fingrith Hall Lane (1km from the Village) An additional 5 houses are going through planning in Fingrith Hall Lane There are other EFDC 'infill sites' in Nine Ashes (1km away) Within metres of the village there will be at least 10 large dwellings at Ashlings Farm (the entrance development within Blackmore
Parish).
I agree - There has been inadequate consultation and sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q10 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART D Also within Brentwood running through the normal planning process is: Redrose Farm (12 dwellings) on a Brownfield site (see R26 comments) 5 starter units in Spriggs Lane - Approved; PP being sought/appealed in Spriggs Lane/Chelmsford Road, (9 dwellings) and any number of other Greenfield sites/opportunistic PPs sought by farmers and land owners. R25 and R26 should be completely removed from the LDP, as the pre-existing and future normal infill (and windfall) in the Blackmore area means this Village has more than shouldered the appropriate housing burden, which will already overwhelm our very limited resources and wholly inadequate infrastructure.
I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q11 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5: PART APOLICY R26 - Land North of Orchard Piece, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (37% of total responses, March 2019 - ie grand total 73% across R25 and R26)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 4 (above). All comments apply to both sites. Redrose Farm is a Brownfield redevelopment opportunity (opposite R26) for 12 homes, and it will deliver part of our own Village plan as opposed to digging up Green Belt land. It should therefore replace R26 in its entirety.
I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm). Brentwood Council has NOT considered all/better development opportunities in and around not only this village but across the wider borough area. The LDP should not have been constructed purely around sites proposed by developers, especially when within Blackmore there is no identified housing need on the scale proposed.
Q12 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART BR26 is also Greenfield/Green Belt, and development is undesirable in the context of better/alternative sites, both within the Village/Parish and the wider Brentwood Council area .A site that was in the LDP (from Jan 2015 - November 2018, when it was withdrawn) is Honeypot Lane (Ref was 022). Identified as 'Green Belt land - edge of Brentwood Urban Area' - an eminently better near town centre site surrounded by existing housing and would provide c200 units. It should be reinstated as this would allow R18, R19, R25 and R26 to be completely removed whilst not adding to the burden on R01
I agree - the Honeypot Lane site should be Reinstated
Q13 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 -PART C SOUNDNESS and HOUSING NEED: In the Addendum, sites R25 and R26 (c50 dwellings) equate to 49% of Green Belt release in 'larger villages'. Brentwood and Shenfield urban areas are identified as having the highest housing need, yet two sites (R18 and R19) have now had their allocations reduced. Blackmore remains classified as a 'Category 3' settlement ('larger village'). Our population numbers are much lower than many other villages in this category - which have sufficient infrastructure and resources that Blackmore lacks. Blackmore is Green Belt and there is no identified need for additional housing on the scale proposed.
I agree - the allocation in Blackmore is disproportionate and unsound
Q14 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Please use this space for any further comments you wish to record.
The LDP, in so far as the 2 Blackmore sites are concerned, was never written strategically and indeed prior to Reg 18 the BBC position was the correct position i.e. sites R25 and R26 are wholly inappropriate for development. We therefore need to reverse out of Reg 18 and 19 and return us the correct position as stated in January 2016.
Q15 CONCLUSION: Taking all the above factors into account, I am opposed to building on the Green Belt, and that sites R25 and R26 should be withdrawn from the LDP.
Strongly agree

Q4 FOCUSSED CHANGE 1: POLICY R01 - Dunton Hills Garden Village Strategic Allocation. The allocation should be further increased and the delivery programme accelerated in order to remove policies R25 and R26 from the LDP
I agree - Dunton Hills can accommodate the houses planned for Blackmore
Q5 FOCUSSED CHANGE 2: POLICY R18 - Land off Crescent Drive, Shenfield. Brownfield. (Less than 1% of total responses, March 2019)Brownfield sites should be prioritised over Greenfield, and Green Belt should not be released at all unless all other alternatives have been used to fulfil the target housing allocations. The number of homes should be increased back to a minimum of 55 and R25 & R26 should be removed entirely.
I agree
Q6 FOCUSSED CHANGE 3: POLICY R19 - Land at Priests Lane, Shenfield.(11% of total responses, March 2019)Defined as: Greenfield Land within Brentwood urban area / Settlement boundary. This is a site surrounded by existing housing, on a main road, and next to a railway line. This site is more suitable for residential development than more remote locations (EG Policies R25 and R26) and therefore should be built on before remote locations.
I agree - we should prioritise building on sites with, or close to, existing infrastructure
Q7 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART APOLICY R25 - Land North of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (36% of total responses, March 2019)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 5 - All comments apply to both sites. Greenfield/Green Belt land in a remote village location with inadequate infrastructure. The number of houses has been reduced by 10. For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site should be withdrawn completely from the LDP. A reduction of 10 houses does not change fundamental problems - in particular the infrastructure and services of the historically significant Blackmore Village will not support this scale of development.
I agree - the site should be removed from the LDP
Q8 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART B. The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed. I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from the LDP
Q9 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART C. At the time of the Addendum, a large number of developments (not included within the LDP) are in various stages of progress. These will further degrade the infrastructure of Blackmore. In particular, there has been inadequate consultation and strategic planning between Brentwood and Epping Forest Councils, with EFDC considering/consenting to; 30 houses are currently under construction in Fingrith Hall Lane (1km from the Village) An additional 5 houses are going through planning in Fingrith Hall Lane There are other EFDC 'infill sites' in Nine Ashes (1km away) Within metres of the village there will be at least 10 large dwellings at Ashlings Farm (the entrance development within Blackmore
Parish).
I agree - There has been inadequate consultation and sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q10 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART D. Also within Brentwood running through the normal planning process is: Redrose Farm (12 dwellings) on a Brownfield site (see R26 comments) 5 starter units in Spriggs Lane - Approved; PP being sought/appealed in Spriggs Lane/Chelmsford Road, (9 dwellings) and any number of other Greenfield sites/opportunistic PPs sought by farmers and land owners. R25 and R26 should be completely removed from the LDP, as the pre-existing and future normal infill (and windfall) in the Blackmore area means this Village has more than shouldered the appropriate housing burden, which will already overwhelm our very limited resources and wholly inadequate infrastructure.
I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q11 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5: PART APOLICY R26 - Land North of Orchard Piece, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (37% of total responses, March 2019 - ie grand total 73% across R25 and R26)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 4 (above). All comments apply to both sites. Redrose Farm is a Brownfield redevelopment opportunity (opposite R26) for 12 homes, and it will deliver part of our own Village plan as opposed to digging up Green Belt land. It should therefore replace R26 in its entirety.
I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm)
Q12 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART BR26 is also Greenfield/Green Belt, and development is undesirable in the context of better/alternative sites, both within the Village/Parish and the wider Brentwood Council area .A site that was in the LDP (from Jan 2015 - November 2018, when it was withdrawn) is Honeypot Lane (Ref was 022).

The number of homes should be increased back to a minimum of

I agree,
There are insufficient amenities and services available to people in
Blackmore as it is. The result of extra population will cause these to be
stretched so far that the village will not be able to cope. We already
have very poor broadband (I have 1 mgb at best, normally .65) and no
mobile signal.

Q3 DATA PROTECTION (CONT.):I also confirm that I consent to share my representations and personal contact details, as above, from the previous Regulation 19 Consultation in February/March 2019Declaration: I hereby consent to share this information as above.
Yes
Q4 FOCUSSED CHANGE 1: POLICY R01 - Dunton Hills Garden Village Strategic Allocation. The allocation should be further increased and the delivery programme accelerated in order to remove policies R25 and R26 from the LDP
I agree - Dunton Hills can accommodate the houses planned for Blackmore
Q5 FOCUSSED CHANGE 2: POLICY R18 - Land off Crescent Drive, Shenfield. Brownfield. (Less than 1% of total responses, March 2019)Brownfield sites should be prioritised over Greenfield, and Green Belt should not be released at all unless all other alternatives have been used to fulfil the target housing allocations. The number of homes should be increased back to a minimum of 55 and R25 & R26 should be removed entirely.
I agree
Q6 FOCUSSED CHANGE 3: POLICY R19 - Land at Priests Lane, Shenfield.(11% of total responses, March 2019)Defined as: Greenfield Land within Brentwood urban area / Settlement boundary. This is a site surrounded by existing housing, on a main road, and next to a railway line. This site is more suitable for residential development than more remote locations (EG Policies R25 and R26) and therefore should be built on before remote locations.
I agree - we should prioritise building on sites with, or close to, existing infrastructure
Q7 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART APOLICY R25 - Land North of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (36% of total responses, March 2019)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 5 - All comments apply to both sites. Greenfield/Green Belt land in a remote village location with inadequate infrastructure. The number of houses has been reduced by 10. For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site should be withdrawn completely from the LDP. A reduction of 10 houses does not change fundamental problems - in particular the infrastructure and services of the historically significant Blackmore Village will not support this scale of development.
I agree - the site should be removed from the LDP
Q8 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART B. The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed. I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from the LDP
Q9 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART C. At the time of the Addendum, a large number of developments (not included within the LDP) are in various stages of progress. These will further degrade the infrastructure of Blackmore. In particular, there has been inadequate consultation and strategic planning between Brentwood and Epping Forest Councils, with EFDC considering/consenting to; 30 houses are currently under construction in Fingrith Hall Lane (1km from the Village) An additional 5 houses are going through planning in Fingrith Hall Lane There are other EFDC 'infill sites' in Nine Ashes (1km away) Within metres of the village there will be at least 10 large dwellings at Ashlings Farm (the entrance development within Blackmore
Parish).
I agree - There has been inadequate consultation and sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q10 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART D. Also within Brentwood running through the normal planning process is: Redrose Farm (12 dwellings) on a Brownfield site (see R26 comments) 5 starter units in Spriggs Lane - Approved; PP being sought/appealed in Spriggs Lane/Chelmsford Road, (9 dwellings) and any number of other Greenfield sites/opportunistic PPs sought by farmers and land owners. R25 and R26 should be completely removed from the LDP, as the pre-existing and future normal infill (and windfall) in the Blackmore area means this Village has more than shouldered the appropriate housing burden, which will already overwhelm our very limited resources and wholly inadequate infrastructure.
I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the LDP
Q11 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5: PART APOLICY R26 - Land North of Orchard Piece, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (37% of total responses, March 2019 - ie grand total 73% across R25 and R26)To be read in conjunction with Focussed Change 4 (above). All comments apply to both sites. Redrose Farm is a Brownfield redevelopment opportunity (opposite R26) for 12 homes, and it will deliver part of our own Village plan as opposed to digging up Green Belt land. It should therefore replace R26 in its entirety.
I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm)
Q12 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 - PART BR26 is also Greenfield/Green Belt, and development is undesirable in the context of better/alternative sites, both within the Village/Parish and the wider Brentwood Council area .A site that was in the LDP (from Jan 2015 - November 2018, when it was withdrawn) is Honeypot Lane (Ref was 022). Identified as 'Green Belt land - edge of Brentwood Urban Area' - an eminently better near town centre site surrounded by existing housing and would provide c200 units. It should be reinstated as this would allow R18, R19, R25 and R26 to be completely removed whilst not adding to the burden on R01
I agree - the Honeypot Lane site should be Reinstated
Q13 FOCUSSED CHANGE 5 -PART C SOUNDNESS and HOUSING NEED: In the Addendum, sites R25 and R26 (c50 dwellings) equate to 49% of Green Belt release in 'larger villages'. Brentwood and Shenfield urban areas are identified as having the highest housing need, yet two sites (R18 and R19) have now had their allocations reduced. Blackmore remains classified as a 'Category 3' settlement ('larger village'). Our population numbers are much lower than many other villages in this category - which have sufficient infrastructure and resources that Blackmore lacks. Blackmore is Green Belt and there is no identified need for additional housing on the scale proposed.
I agree - the allocation in Blackmore is disproportionate and unsound

Q15 CONCLUSION: Taking all the above factors into account, I am opposed to building on the Green Belt, and that sites R25 and R26 should be withdrawn from the LDP.
Strongly agree
