Local Plan 2015-2030 Preferred Options for Consultation

2.20

Representation ID: 305

Received: 11/09/2013

Respondent: Epping Forest District Council

Representation Summary:

(1) Epping Forest Council is not convinced that Brentwood Council has adequately justified its position that it is unable to make full provision for its objectively assessed housing needs - at the very least, it should undertake a comprehensive Green Belt boundary review and identify and assess in detail potential mitigation measures;
(2) The Preferred Options document makes no reference to joint working as encouraged by para 179 of the National Planning Policy Framework. Consequently there is no indication of how Brentwood intends to try to make provision for the outstanding number (2,100) of new dwellings outside the Borough boundary;
(3) Experience elsewhere has already shown that there is a greater risk of the Local Plan being challenged on soundness grounds, as it has not been "positively prepared" in accordance with para 182 of the National Planning Policy Framework;
(4) Because of the lack of justification and (a) the need to meet its own objectively assessed housing figure; (b) significant environmental and infrastructure constraints; and (c) being in a different Housing Market Area, Epping Forest Council is not in a position to make any provision for Brentwood's unmet housing needs;
5. Further traveller provision in the West Horndon area, as part of a mixed-use development, is noted.
