Local Plan 2015-2030 Preferred Options for Consultation

Strategic Objectives

Representation ID: 1325

Received: 01/10/2013

Respondent: Laindon Holdings Ltd

Agent: Town Planning Services

Representation Summary:

Strategic Objective SO7 seeks to safeguard the Green Belt and protect and enhance valuable landscapes. We consider that this objective should be amended to reflect the Council's preferred options Policy S1, which recognises that it is appropriate to allow the reuse of suitable developed sites in the Green Belt. This recognition should similarly be incorporated within the strategic objectives.

S1: Spatial Strategy

Representation ID: 1326

Received: 01/10/2013

Respondent: Laindon Holdings Ltd

Agent: Town Planning Services

Representation Summary:

We support the reuse of suitable sites in the Green Belt. This is consistent with the
presumption in favour of sustainable development. However, we consider that the policy should identify appropriate sites for redevelopment. Specifically, it is suggested that land at Brook Street and Wigley Bush Lane, Brentwood is an appropriate site for redevelopment.
We consider that the site should be identified for development, consistent with the approach set out in the Council's preferred options.

Policy CP10: Green Belt

Representation ID: 1328

Received: 01/10/2013

Respondent: Laindon Holdings Ltd

Agent: Town Planning Services

Representation Summary:

We consider that in accordance with Policy S1 (which acknowledges that it is appropriate to reuse suitable developed sites in the Green Belt), the extent of the Green Belt should be amended. Previously developed sites that are appropriate for redevelopment should be removed from the Green Belt. We consider land at Brook Street and Wigley Bush Lane, Brentwood is an appropriate site for redevelopment and should be excluded. The site currently accommodates a car showroom and car park. Together with the adjacent developments, it forms part of a ribbon of established commercial development along Brook Street.

Policy CP17: Provision of Infrastructure and Community Facilities

Representation ID: 1329

Received: 01/10/2013

Respondent: Laindon Holdings Ltd

Agent: Town Planning Services

Representation Summary:

The policy identifies the requirement for new development to provide for off-site infrastructure necessary to mitigate their impacts. The policy indicates the potential introduction of Community Infrastructure Levy. We consider that the approach must be sufficiently flexible to respond to the viability of proposals.

Policy DM9: New Retail and Commercial Leisure Development

Representation ID: 1330

Received: 01/10/2013

Respondent: Laindon Holdings Ltd

Agent: Town Planning Services

Representation Summary:

The policy seeks to reflect the requirements of the sequential approach and the assessment of impact required under the National Planning Policy Framework. However, the criteria within the policy are overly complex and are inconsistent with the Framework. In particular, the Policy requires that proposals have "no impact on the vitality and viability" of existing centres. This is inconsistent with the Framework and the presumption in favour of sustainable development. In this context, the suggested requirement that there be "no impact" is entirely unreasonable and is contrary to the presumption in favour of sustainable development.

Policy DM11: New Development in the Green Belt

Representation ID: 1332

Received: 01/10/2013

Respondent: Laindon Holdings Ltd

Agent: Town Planning Services

Representation Summary:

The policy sets out detailed criteria for the assessment of applications for development in the Green Belt. It is considered that these criteria are unnecessary. The key issue in the assessment of proposals for development concerns the impact of development on the openness of the Green Belt and the purposes of including land within it. The suggested criteria in Policy DM11 go beyond this and are inappropriate.

Policy DM12: Established areas of development

Representation ID: 1334

Received: 01/10/2013

Respondent: Laindon Holdings Ltd

Agent: Town Planning Services

Representation Summary:

This policy considers 'established areas of development' with reference to 'frontage ribbon development' within the Green Belt. The policy identifies specific locations. Whilst it is appropriate to recognise that areas of established ribbon development may provide greater opportunity for development, the policy only looks to residential development. It should also be recognised that there are similarly areas of commercial ribbon development. Land at Brook Street, Brentwood is an area of commercial ribbon development. It occupies a sustainable location on the edge of Brentwood and is no longer appropriate for inclusion within the Green Belt.
