I have read with interest your Newsletter of the Brentwood Local Development Plan together with the online information and fully support the Council's Policy regarding the aim to provide Affordable Housing in Brentwood.

I wish, therefore, to inform the Council's Planning Department that Thriftwood Scout Campsite would be prepared to negotiate the sale of a "finger" of our land, namely that which borders Beech Ave/Cherry Ave and Knights Way making it an ideal development for house building. The land is not used by campers except on very rare occasions as an emergency access.

I have been connected with Thriftwood as a volunteer for over 30 years, serving on various committees and have seen the campsite grow into a premier Centre providing Adventurous Activities for young people not only in Brentwood but also from around the country and abroad.

If this parcel of land, measuring approx. 2 acres can be used for house building, the Trustees would be keen to meet Planning Officers to talk further.
