Received: 02/10/2013

Alternative Growth Options

Representation ID: 935

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Bolson's Limited

Representation Summary:

The Council is plainly relying on the West Horndon Strategic Allocation (of which the industrial estate forms a part) to meet a sizeable chunk (1500) of the dwellings that it needs to provide over the next 15 years or so. See Policies S1 and S2. It will therefore want to see this proposed policy adopted, it is its "preferred option" after it is stated careful consideration of the alternatives. What were these alternatives? In this context it is interesting to note, that in considering alternatives, the council rejected an alternative (p33) to develop just for housing and not employment, as that would have required the council to identify land and premises elsewhere to offset the loss of businesses and jobs that would occur and would exclude the established business community. What provision have been made to provide continued employment of Bolson's employees?

S3: Job Growth and Employment Land

Representation ID: 942

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Bolson's Limited

Representation Summary:

Proposals in SO3 and S3 do not appear to apply to Bolsons.
Para 2.44 states there the reasons for the need for new allocations.
It seems odd to promote policies that result in the loss of a good purpose-built site. Surely it is more sustainable to maintain a good existing estate? NPPF promotes economic growth, employment and seeks to support existing business sectors and to minimise journey lengths for employment.
Bolsons Unit 64 has easy access to public transport. What suggested alternatives does the Council have in mind when they formulated these proposals?

Alternative Approach

Representation ID: 944

Received: 02/10/2013

Respondent: Bolson's Limited

Representation Summary:

The Council rejected an alternative option to redevelop for housing etc because that would have required the Council to indentify land and premises elsewhere to offset the loss of business and jobs that would occur and would exclude the established business community, and that it was recognised that there would be no guarantee that established business would relocated within the Borough. (Para 3.8 envisages a mix of uses including neighbourly (i.e. compatible) employment uses. What provisions have been made to provide continued employment of Bolsons' employees?
