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 For all the reasons stated in March 2019, this site should be withdrawn completely from the LDP.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.

Q - 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
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.

Q - FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART A POLICY R25 - Land North of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt.

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)

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'.

I am former resident of Blackmore and am aware that building on this scale is totally disproportionate, and will cause massive disruption to life in this small village.

Given the lengths that the council goes through to protect the historic
value of villages such as Blackmore, I find it staggering that it is then
willing to build on green belt in the same area. If the precedent is set,
where does it stop? Only Brownfield sites should be used

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.

Q - 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
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.

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.

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). We moved to current address to be able to be near Blackmore and benefit from the unique character of an English village.

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'.

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.

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').

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
Blackmore is a small village that is already 'bursting at the seams' with people and cars. I live in central Blackmore and I am already shocked by the sheer volume of traffic going through the village day and night. I often have people parking over my drive to access the Co-Op, Leather Bottle and tearooms because there isn't enough space to park. The number of children that walk to school is huge, but yet there is already SO many cars driving through the village at high speed. I tried to call Dealtree Surgery yesterday, and could not get through (8 times throughout the day). Another reason to not build more dwellings. The village cannot fit more dwellings! There are so many other spaces where places can be built; this just does not make sense. Please do not ruin this village!

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 AllocationThe allocation should be further
increased and the delivery programme accelerated in order to
remove policies R25 and R26 from the LDP
I disagree - Dunton Hills should not be made to 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
disagree
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 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
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 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
Q14 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Please use this space for any further comments you wish to record.
Blackmore is a small village that is already 'bursting at the seams' with people and cars. I live in central Blackmore and I am already shocked by the sheer volume

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

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.

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)

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.

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.

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.

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
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

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

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 disagree - the Honeypot Lane site should stay withdrawn.
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

of Woollard Way, Blackmore. Greenfield and Green Belt. (36% of

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

Q8 FOCUSSED CHANGE 4 - PART BThe sites proposed are

local housing needs.These sites should be removed.
I agree - these sites are developer led and should be removed from

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
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 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

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.

Change suggested by respondent:

Remove R25 and R26 from plan

2019Declaration: I hereby consent to share this information as

Yes
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
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

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
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.
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

A - Strongly agree. Please preserve our beautiful villages. Once these developments have taken place there is no turning back. We can not restore what has been destroyed. Blackmore has history dating back to Henry VIII and deserves to have its beauty preserved. Blackmore is a picturesque village which does not have the infrastructure to support these extra homes. The school is already full to capacity with no space to extend. These extra houses will cause congestion on the roads and will spoil the beauty of this village. The five parishes as a whole are a beautiful part of Brentwood. There are plenty of opportunities to build closer to the town which will not ruin the countryside feel of the local villages.

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.

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'.

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 disagree - Dunton Hills should not be made to 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

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

limited resources and wholly inadequate infrastructure.
I agree - Sites R25 and R26 should be removed completely from the

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 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

A - Strongly agree
Blackmore is a wholly inappropriate site for further development. This historic village should be preserved from any more development in order to retain it's authentic village atmosphere and history. Quite apart from the aesthetic reasons, there is simply no infrastructure to support such an expansion of the population. There are very limited services available to the residents as it is - the local store cannot cope with the parking demands and the Post Office 'service' is abysmal. A serious road traffic accident is bound to happen at some point in the village and increasing the population will only make this much more likely. The Deal Tree Heath Centre is under great pressure coping with the demands of the existing parish residents without any more joining the ranks. I don't have children of school age but it's likely that Blackmore school cannot cope with increased demand for places. Additionally the increase in traffic on the country lanes makes the area a much more dangerous place to live. Please immediately scrap the plans for expansion of Blackmore village.
These development options have not been accurately assessed for the impact on their surroundings and existing residents. The plans need to be urgently reassessed.

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)
,
Brownfield options should always be taken above Greenbelt. This
village simply cannot cope with any further expansion. Alternatives
simply must be found.
COMMENT: :
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 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
Q14 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Please use this space for any further comments you wish to record.
These development options have not been accurately assessed for the impact on their surroundings and existing residents. The plans need to be urgently reassessed.
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

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).

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
Blackmore has already been developed to maximum capacity. Despite this further development has been allowed and is currently being processed. Blackmore needs to retain it's village identity and heritage. There is a lack of services for the existing population without any more
people adding to the problems we already have. The roads in an out of Blackmore are unsuitable for heavy traffic and accidents are bound to happen. The doctor's surgery cannot cope with existing demand let alone even more patients. There is one village store that tries and fails to meet everyone's needs. It is already struggling to provide a Post Office service. Blackmore simply cannot cope with further development.
There are more appropriate sites available in the Brentwood area without developing Green Belt land that will never be recovered. Please STOP this madness
now.

Q4 FOCUSSED CHANGE 1: POLICY R01 - Dunton Hills Garden
Village Strategic AllocationThe allocation should be further

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,
Greenfield areas need to be protected for future generations to enjoy
and to preserve the wildlife that live in these areas.
Comment: :
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
,
The infrastructure to support new development is critical to the success
and integration of a project.

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 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
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 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
Q14 ADDITIONAL COMMENTS: Please use this space for any further comments you wish to record.
None.
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

The amount of cars in the village of Blackmore is already a concern and any further housing is going to cause major upsets. Also the problem of getting a doctor's

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 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
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 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

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.
