I think that the priorities should be to ensure that there are sufficient primary school places and sufficient GPs/GP Surgeries for the ever-growing/ageing population of the borough. Alongside this, care in the community must be adequately financed to prevent unnecessary burdens on hospitals.

Everything needs addressing. You can't expand and develop and only address some of the infrastructure issues. To plan to do so is to fail before you've started.

The solution to infrastructure issues is to provide appropriate, reliable and cost efficient to the users public transport and the current climate suggests this will not be the case. The bottom line is being able to deal with quantities and I do not see this being accommodated for the foreseeable future.

No mention of leisure facilities or addressing the loss of valued open space through building on land provided for the public to undertake sporting activities. Yet again increased numbers require increased facilities and at present the Council intends to reduce the amount of public space available for recreational purposes. What areas have been identified to encourage and replace those areas lost? What funding is available? Who will be consulted on sports provision?

Roads and transport. If people can't easily access routes to work - you are in danger of creating dormitories of housing where work cannot be access - creating social problems. Houses need to be where there is employment available - or how else are people to pay for them?

See attached consultation questionnaire.

Please refer to the attached letters relating to the proposals for development in the above mentioned area.

It is widely felt that any building developments on these existing Green spaces (regardless of actual planning definition) would have an adverse effect on all local residents, from the young to those retired.

The area is the first 'parcel' of countryside North of Brentwood and as such is the Gateway for all residents who wish to enjoy access to the paths and Bridleways that stretch out from this point.

The access to that 'Gateway' is currently along quiet, almost traffic free, lanes and is a safe passage for both young and old.

It is vital that the local community and Brentwood as a whole do not lose such a valuable and recreational asset.

Any development upon the sites, in the area, would involve road building and re-planning of the local highway, putting even greater pressure upon the already dangerous, Ongar Road/Coxtie Green road roundabout. It is probable that any such development will further endanger pedestrian access to the previously mentioned 'Gateway'.

No development should take place.

Hullets Lane/ Gents Farm and Environs, Pilgrims Hatch
Site Ref: 176

This parcel of land referenced above, is the closest to the 'Gateway' reference point mentioned in the covering letter, any development here would destroy that change affect one experiences when leaving suburbia and entering the real countryside.

The land itself has a natural spring and most of the time is waterlogged. Great Crested Newts have been seen in its pool, bats frequent the area and other wildlife, badgers, squirrels, etc 'live' in the vicinity.

Access is a problem to this site, as mentioned in the covering letter.
The land is adjacent to the Grade II Listed Gents Farm and its cartilage buildings.
Area must remain Green Belt.

Hullets Lane/ Gents Farm and Environs, Pilgrims Hatch
Site Ref: 011C
SHLAA ref: G038

This parcel of land, reference above, was stated as Green Belt in an unsuccessful development application made in 2009/10. There has been no stated change in that status and the previous reasons for the rejection of the plan remain in place.
The land is habitat for bats, smaller species of deer and other wildlife, badgers, squirrels, and untold varieties of bird species including long tailed tits.

Access is a problem to this site, as mentioned in the covering letter.

Again the land is adjacent to the Grade II Listed Gents Farm and its curtilage buildings.

Area must remain Green Belt.

Hullets Lane/ Gents Farm and Environs, Pilgrims Hatch
Site Ref: 011B
SHLAA Ref: G038

This land is scrub land but is habitat for bats, badgers, squirrels and untold varieties of bird species including long tailed tits, protected species such as Great Crested newts are known to be in this area.

Access is a problem to this site, as mentioned in the covering letter. It is probable that this area would be sacrificed to any road improvements to support the other building plans. The land currently acts a natural sound barrier against traffic noise on the Ongar Road, especially the braking sounds emanating from the Coxtie Green / Ongar Road roundabout.

Again the land is adjacent to the Grade II Listed Gents Farm and its curtilage buildings.

Area must remain Green Belt.

Hullets Lane/ Gents Farm and Environs, Pilgrims Hatch
Site Ref: 011A
SHLAA ref: B025

In October 2013, many of the local residents objected to the proposed building of domestic property on the above site, nothing has changed in the interim concerning those objections.

We, like many locally are once again stating that this building proposal should not be considered.

Hullets/ Gents Farm area is Grade II Listed, together with its curtilage buildings which border the rear gardens of 10 to 20 Orchard Lane. The buildings cannot be demolished to gain access to the paddock, which is Green and not Brown belt land, as it would defile the meaning of the Listing.

Area must remain Green Belt.

There is a major feeling development on the scale proposed will need major investment on infrastructure. The current hospital situation is nothing short of disgraceful in Brentwood- we have to go to Queens or Broomfield. We are badly served schools are full. GP practices/Dental closed to new paptients. Parking a nightmare, buses poor. Road surfaces/pot holes a disgrace. The Plan fails to address these concerns. And fails to address the fact that residents do not want to live in a faceless suburban landscape, with a diminishing green belt, and boarded up shops in our High Streets.

The approach to community facilities and green infrastructure, which would include indoor and outdoor community sports facilities, in the context of new development contributing towards it to support sustainable communities is welcomed. The Council's evidence base on community sports facility provision will be essential for informing policies and allocations on the protection and provision/enhancement of sports facilities. It should also inform the additional needs generated by new development and how such development should make provision for sport in the context of CIL/planning obligations in the context of most developments not being large enough to make on-site provision.
