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 For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site should be withdrawn completely from the LDP.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. The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed. 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). 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.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. 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. The infrastructure in Blackmore struggles to cope with the current demands on it. Especially the roads, doctors surgery and schools. To further add to this problem is unacceptable. In addition to this the c.65 new homes already in development/planning outside of sites R25 and R25 have not been taken into account at any point and will double the problems that will be caused by R25 and R26.

Change suggested by respondent:

Remove R25 and R26 from the Plan.

Q2 DATA PROTECTION: All representations and personal information that you provide will be used solely for the purpose of Local Plan Consultation including sharing your personal contact details with the Planning Inspectorate and Programme Officer. Declaration: I hereby consent to share this information as above.
Yes
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. All Brownfield sites should be considered before Greenfield are looked
at and any available Brownfield should be taken into account as a first
priority. For example it is not acceptable that there are still Brownfield
sites in Blackmore and the surrounding areas that have not been
considered.
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. I do not think that the land on Honeypot Lane should have been
automatically removed when other sites that have less infrastructure to
accommodate development were disregarded for removal.
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. The infrastructure in Blackmore struggles to cope with the current
demands on it. Especially the roads, doctors surgery and schools. To
further add to this problem is unacceptable. In addition to this the c.65
new homes already in development/planning outside of sites R25 and
R25 have not been taken into account at any point and will double the
problems that will be caused by R25 and R26.
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.

A - Strongly agree.
Local infrastructure particularly roads, schools, and doctors surgeries are already inadequate and there are no plans to address these issues with current levels of housing. The proposed plans will only exacerbate the problems.

Remove R25 and R26 from plan

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. 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.

Change suggested by respondent:

Remove R25 and R26 from the Plan.

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

It is about time that the Council accepts that unless the service provisions are put in place prior to any building ie adequate schooling, medical provision and
transport links then Blackmore is clearly unsuitable for a major housing development as proposed. 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. The sites proposed are developer led and still have not been properly assessed against local housing needs. These sites should be removed.

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. There is not the infrastructure in place to accomodate any new housing
at Blackmore. There is already too much congestion
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. There does not seem to be enough money available to provide the
rquired infrastructure to make any further houses in Blackmore viable.
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. There are simply not enough resources to support the existing
community, Blackmore school is already full, it takes upto 3 weeks to
get a doctors appointment and buses to and from Brentwood do not run
late enough.
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

I agree - Green Belt land should not be built upon and Brownfield should be prioritised (eg Redrose Farm). Blackmore needs to be protected and with the Brownfield site
developed it will more than provide enough additional housing for the
Brentwood plan.

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

Q4 FOCUSSED CHANGE 1: POLICY R01 - Dunton Hills Garden
Village Strategic AllocationThe 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,
Brownfield sites have not been properly considered before the green
belt and green field sites. The LDP has not shown that the 50 houses
could not be built by increasing density on the more urban sites. Denton
Village could easily absorb this amount for example. In addition there
are other sites within the Blackmore boundaries that have been given
planning permission by Brentwood Planning for development as well as
building by Epping Council on our borders. All of which will be using our
services and infrastructure adding to further congestion in an already
busy village.
Comment: :
Q6 FOCUSSED CHANGE 3: POLICY R19 - Land at Priests Lane,
Shenfield.(11% of total responses, March 2019)Defined as:

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. Sites such as this Policy R19 with all it's amenities and infrastructure should surely be given consideration over R25 & R26 that do not have
the necessary amenities and infrastructure are those that are there are
completely overwhelmed

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.
