Thank you for inviting the Highways Agency (HA) to contribute to the Brentwood Local Plan 2015-30 Preferred Options Consultation.

The HA is an executive agency of the Department for Transport (DfT). We are responsible for operating, maintaining and improving England's Strategic Road Network (SRN) on behalf of the Secretary of State for Transport. In the case of Brentwood we would be concerned with any development that could have an impact on the M25 junctions 28 and 29 and the A12.

The emphasis on the promotion of sustainable transport to reduce the reliance on the car is very much welcomed by the HA and this is an essential part of the Borough's plan moving forward.

It is recognised that the evidence base for understanding the traffic impact of the development proposals is still being developed and the outcomes and results of the traffic modelling will be forthcoming. Whilst having no comment at this stage on the site allocations and the plan in general the HA would expect to see the results of the modelling in order to fully understand any impact on the SRN and any potential mitigation that may be required to facilitate further development within the Borough in the future.

The HA look forward to viewing the further evidence base and the Infrastructure Delivery Planand welcome ongoing consultation to understand the impact on the SRN through the ongoing development of the Borough's Local Plan.

I hope the above comments are useful at this stage.
