Draft Local Plan

Policy 5.3: Job Growth and Employment Land

Representation ID: 16211

Received: 17/05/2016

Respondent: S Walsh and Sons Ltd

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

Support is given to the provision of new employment land to benefit the creation of new jobs within the Borough and to the allocation of existing employment sites within the Green Belt. Paragraph 5.56 acknowledges that there needs to be further work undertaken to "identify exact loss of employment and the extent to which this needs to be replaced" and it is considered that this work should have been undertaken prior to the publication of this Draft Local Plan.

Draft Local Plan

Policy 8.2: Brentwood Enterprise Park

Representation ID: 16212

Received: 17/05/2016

Respondent: S Walsh and Sons Ltd

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

Whilst the provision of additional employment space is supported, the Council need to justify the allocation of the former M25 Works Site. It is understood that the M25 works site was created as a temporary facility under the General Permitted Development Order and the Highways Act 1980 and has a requirement to be returned to its original state at the completion of the works, which ceased several years ago and the land should now be in agricultural use. As such, the site should not be considered or referred to as 'previously developed' or brownfield land within the Local Plan.

Policy 8.2: Brentwood Enterprise Park

Representation ID: 16213

Respondent: S Walsh and Sons Ltd

Representation Summary:

It is also questioned why Land at Codham Hall 101B is being put forward for allocation and additional expansion of the industrial site within the Green Belt, whereas sites such as East Horndon Hall Industrial Estate have not even been allocated for employment purposes. In regard to its impact on the purposes of the Green Belt, the Council's published assessment results in a similar overall assessment between the two sites. It is considered that consistency should be made by the Council in their consideration of employment sites, particularly where there is little difference between the impacts of the allocation on the Green Belt purposes.

Policy 8.4: Employment Land Allocations

Representation ID: 16214

Received: 17/05/2016

Respondent: S Walsh and Sons Ltd

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

It is a logical decision to seek to allocate existing employment sites in the Green Belt that are close to the strategic highway network and away from the higher populated areas of residential development, for employment use. The Company requests that its site 038A&B at East Horndon Business Park is allocated as a general employment site. It comprises previously developed land, providing an excellent opportunity for new employment land to form a business park, incorporating some leisure opportunities. The site has been assessed having a low to moderate contribution to Green Belt purposes within the Council's assessment.

Draft Local Plan

Policy 8.4: Employment Land Allocations

Representation ID: 16215

Received: 17/05/2016

Respondent: S Walsh and Sons Ltd

Agent: JTS Partnership LLP

Representation Summary:

Site 038A&B at East Horndon can form a new business park, providing a mix of B-uses together with a leisure use as a feature building on the corner of the A128 and A127 roundabout. Whilst the site is heavily screened from the west and north, further landscaping and planting can be provided. This site:
- Is in a strong location for accessibility where country lanes and residential roads are avoided, but easy access to the main arterial
- Requires limited landscaping and screening on the eastern boundary
- Is of a size that allows for a comprehensive development, whilst being of a scale and nature appropriate to the locality
- Readily constrained by the A128, A127 and Tilbury Road, and thus makes a logical release from the Green Belt
- Has a strong defensible boundary.
This site is ideally located to make up the loss of an existing employment location.
