Local Plan 2015-2030 Preferred Options for Consultation

S1: Spatial Strategy

Representation ID: 677

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: The Croll Group

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

The policy aims to protect the gb by focusing development on land within accessible locations, along with the redevelopment of sustainable sites in the gb. This specifically includes a strategic allocation at West Horndon. Although this strategy is not in question, I would query the rationale behind the exclusion of our clients landholdings (north of station road) given its location in relation to the WH allocation.

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

The Strategy states when considering development proposals the council will take a positive approach which reflects the presumption in favour of sustainable development however by excluding our clients site, which is in a sustianable location, and can help meet housing shortage is not justified within any of the evidence base provided or the Local Plan itself.

S3: Job Growth and Employment Land

Representation ID: 683

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: The Croll Group

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

The analysis to support the West Horndon Allocation is the SA and the site assessment proformas. This is insuffient evidence to exclude our clients site from the allocation and the Plan does not therefore sufficiently consider the alternatives such as our clients land, given its sustainable location and relationship to West Horndon.

Policy CP4: West Horndon Opportunity Area

Representation ID: 684

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: The Croll Group

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

The proposed policy states that there maybe an opportunity to extend the West Horndon opportunity area for development dependent on the ability to accommodate a self-sustaining community. It would appear this policy is based on an infrastructure delivery plan and modelling work which has yet not been finalised. Again I therefore find it difficult to comment without a complete evidence base.

In accordance with this policy to allow for minor amendments to the GB, we would like our clients land included within the West Horndon Strategic allocation. This would follow the current precedent of allocating GB land within this location of the Borough for development.

Policy DM23 Housing Land Allocations - Major Sites

Representation ID: 687

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: The Croll Group

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

This policy should be update to include my clients landholdings (north of station Road, West Hornson) in order to assist with meeting objectively assessed needs of the borough and to demonstrate a sound spatial growth strategy has been adopted. This would also provide additional flexibility in the number of dwellings which could come forward if a self-sustaining community is established in this location, in line with the proposed policy CP4.

Representation ID: 688

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: The Croll Group

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

Then Plan is proposing to build 3,500 new dwellings over the plan period 2015-2030, with an allocation of 1,500 new dwellings at West Horndon. PBA's OAN Report, which has been undertaken but not published by the Council, suggesting a figure of 362 dwellings each year or 5,430 new dwellings over the plan period. This ilustrates a shortage in housing numbers of 1,930 or 128 dwellings each year.

It should also be noted that the councils SHMA has not yet been finalised or published, which makes it difficult to provide comment on the Plan when all of the facts are not made available to evaluate. this does not accord with Para. 159 of the NPPF.
