Local Plan 2015-2030 Preferred Options for Consultation

S1: Spatial Strategy

Representation ID: 341

Received: 03/10/2013

Respondent: South Essex Partnership University NHS Trust

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

My client supports the general principles of the Council's preferred spatial strategy and the key sustainability criteria used to identify the proposed development allocations. We would however contend that giving due consideration to these criteria there are a number of sites that would pass these requirements which have not been proposed for allocation, particularly my client's site at Pastoral Way, Warley (#083, Draft Site Assessment and Option 27, SA).

2.29

Representation ID: 342

Received: 03/10/2013

Respondent: South Essex Partnership University NHS Trust

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

The Council's preferred housing target of 3,500 new homes over the Plan period cannot be deemed sound on the basis that it will not meet the Council's objectively assessed housing need despite there being suitable sites which have not been allocated for housing. My client's site is a highly sustainable location for development and meets the Council's own assessment criteria for allocation. On the basis that my client's site has been discounted when it is entirely suitable for housing development, we must assert that in our view the Council's justification for this preferred strategy is unsound.

Policy DM23 Housing Land Allocations - Major Sites

Representation ID: 343

Received: 03/10/2013

Respondent: South Essex Partnership University NHS Trust

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

My client objects to the discounting of their land at Pastoral Way, Warley which we have proven would be a highly suitable and sustainable housing allocation. The accompanying wording to this policy does not provide any justification or rationale for why the site has been discounted, which only states that it 'could be suitable' for up to 85 dwellings.

Sustainability Appraisal

Representation ID: 344

Received: 03/10/2013

Respondent: South Essex Partnership University NHS Trust

Agent: Bidwells

Representation Summary:

Pastoral Way, Warley
The SA reaffirms the site's suitability demonstrating its high sustainability credentials. The only potential matters flagged are:
BIODIVERSITY: The site is 1km from the nearest SSSI (Thorndon Park);
LANDSCAPE: The site is in the Green Belt; and
LANDSCAPE: The site adjoins a Special Landscape Area.

None of these matters would result in 'significant harm', nor do they pose insurmountable barriers to development. They are also significantly outweighed by the considerable sustainability credentials of the site (acknowledged by the SA), particularly the contribution the site would make to delivering much needed new homes.
