Evidence Base

Representation ID: 15769

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Persimmon Homes Essex

Representation Summary:

Disagree with the SHMA's conclusion that Brentwood Borough can be considered a self-contained housing market area. Brentwood is within easy access to London and the M25 making it a popular place for commuters, especially with the coming of Crossrail. This should be considered in determining housing needs in the borough. With London not being able to meet its housing needs, the surrounding area will be required to make up this shortfall. Brentwood Council need to consider the implication of the projected shortfall in housing delivery in the GLA. The inclusion of reserved sites can assist in case the OANs change or the Council cannot demonstrate the 5year housing land supply.

Policy 6.1: Sustainable Development

Representation ID: 15774

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Persimmon Homes Essex

Representation Summary:

Policy 6.1 seeks to comply with the NPPF which is in favour of sustainable development. In order to maintain a 5 year housing land supply and protect the Borough from speculative application, the Council needs to ensure that applications are determined without delay so that adoption can be delivered within specified timeframes.

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Persimmon Homes Essex

Policy 6.4: Effective Site Planning

Representation ID: 15779

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Persimmon Homes Essex

Representation Summary:

These points should be principles of design and not effective planning. Para17 of NPPF encourages the effective use of land to meet housing needs, whilst this relates to brownfield sites, the same approach should be adopted for green field sites to maximise site full potential and minimise the need to release Green Belt sites.

Policy 7.1: Dunton Hills Garden Village

Representation ID: 15788

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Persimmon Homes Essex

Representation Summary:

Support this policy to meet the Borough's housing needs. Although Basildon's Draft Plan concluded that the joint area has not been progressed due to the lack of technical work to support the delivery of development in this location. However Basildon seeks to allocate and safeguard land to the west of Basildon therefore the proposed allocation of Policy 7.1 could result in coalescence. Therefore Brentwood and Basildon should work together to ensure that development in this location has regards to (a) neighbouring allocation, (b) cumulative impacts and mitigation, (c) that the totality of development is deliverable.

Policy 7.1: Dunton Hills Garden Village

Representation ID: 15789

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Persimmon Homes Essex

Representation Summary:

This area is identified location for route C, if route C be the preffered location for Lower Thames Crossing it would severely impact the deliverability of the proposed allocation. The Draft Plan has not identified how the Council will overcome this issue should Route 4 be progressed. The Council should identify reserved sites that can be called upon if (a) the allocation does not come forward or (b) the Council cannot demonstrate a 5 year housing land supply.

Policy 7.2: Housing Type, Mix, Size and Tenures

Representation ID: 15792

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Persimmon Homes Essex

Representation Summary:

Developers will need to have regards to the Council's latest SHMA and Housing Strategy however the use of the two documents can result in conflicting evidence, which can create uncertainty as to what the policy requires and potential for inconsistent application of the policy. The policy should be reworded to say "that proposals should have regards to the Council's most up to date housing needs" whether it be the SHMA or the Council's Housing Strategy.

Policy 7.2: Housing Type, Mix, Size and Tenures

Representation ID: 15798

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Persimmon Homes Essex

Representation Summary:

There is no detail of the evidence base to justify the need for self build units, their impact upon housing supply and development viability.

Many small scale and windfall development would fall within the definition of self built. The reliance on these as part of major developments is that the land may be put aside for them, with delivery being slow, therefore affecting the council housing trajectory and 5 year housing land supply. The Council should look to allocate smaller sites which will deliver 100% self builds and not be reliant on developers and landowners to deliver the land as part of their proposal.

There is also confusion around what the Council will deem the most appropriate housing mix and the consistency in which this policy will be applied to residential developments.
