Local Plan 2015-2030 Preferred Options for Consultation

Policy CP17: Provision of Infrastructure and Community Facilities

Representation ID: 482

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Brentwood School

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

There is little or no consideration of educational facilities or schools. Reference at Paragraph 3.76, relates to the provision of infrastructure and community facilities in the context of Policy CP17. Where such elements will be delivered is through financial contributions, CIL and Section 106 obligations.

In reality all schools within the Borough will continue to move forward and develop under their own drive and within budgetary constraints.

Policy DM39: Changes of Use or New Buildings for Institutional Purposes

Representation ID: 483

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Brentwood School

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

It is noted that there is a positive and proactive Policy relating to institutional or community development Policy DM39, which is the key policy as far as the School is concerned. The Policy is, therefore, supported by the School, but the justification is very limited and no explanation is given of the evidence base or reference or contribution made by Brentwood School or other Schools to the community or employment generation. The School endorses the sentiments of any site being easily accessible and close to other facilities. The justification should be expanded, see attached.

Strategic Objectives

Representation ID: 484

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Brentwood School

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

The listed Strategic Objectives SO1 to SO11 do not go far enough to highlight the
important contribution made by its local schools and educational facilities to local
employment and community development. The recommendation is that there is a
need for a further Strategic Objective to: "Promote and encourage the
improvements, redevelopments and expansion of its recognised educational
establishments".

Policy CP10: Green Belt

Representation ID: 486

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Brentwood School

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

A large part of the School's site is defined as Green Belt. It is the School's contention that their landholdings currently lying in the Green Belt provides no real Green Belt function. It really does not make sense to maintain the School's land around Middleton Hall Lane as Green Belt where it is in the centre or close to the centre of the town. Other development management policies relating to urban open space can protect the Council's objectives of maintaining quality of life
and community infrastructure.

It is therefore requested Brentwood schools landholdings be removed from the Green Belt.

Policy CP11: Strong and Competitive Economy

Representation ID: 487

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Brentwood School

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

Policy CP11: Strong and Competitive Economy is a proactive
Policy and generally supportive to business development but the School would like
to add to the criteria with:
i. Recognising the contribution that educational establishments and emerging
technology development can make to the local economic growth.

Again, within the justification by reference to the evidence base and number of
Schools and educational establishments the importance of this sector to
employment opportunities in the Borough should be highlighted.

Policy CP13: Sustainable Transport

Representation ID: 488

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Brentwood School

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

The School has spent considerable sums amounts introducing its own travel plan
and monitoring. The first sentence to the third paragraph of that Policy reads:
"Sustainable travel will be encouraged through the requirement for travel plans from major developments, employers and institutions and residential travel packs." The words "where appropriate" should be introduced so that the sentence reads:
"Sustainable travel will be encouraged through the requirement for travel plans
where appropriate from major developments, employers and institutions and
residential travel packs."

Policy DM31: Protection and Enhancement of Open Space, Community, Sport and Recreational Facilities

Representation ID: 490

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Brentwood School

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

To include a fourth exception criteria:
"That the contribution the open space makes in terms of its function, use, and to the character and amenity of the area, and the harm of its loss, is clearly outweighed by benefits arising from its redevelopment that meet other objectives of the plan."

In addition, it is considered that further text of the Policy (Paragraph 3) should include the following words at the end of the paragraph:
"... or that contribution made by the open space is clearly outweighed by benefits arising from its redevelopment that meet other planning objectives of the plan."

Policy DM2: Effective Site Planning

Representation ID: 491

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Brentwood School

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

With respect to Policy DM2 we recommend a minor amendment that the word only be deleted from the first sentence of that Policy as its inclusion is unnecessary and unduly onerous.
