Draft Local Plan

Policy 5.1: Spatial Strategy

Representation ID: 15964

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: St Modwen Properties PLC

Number of people: 2

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

The focus of larger scale development on key transport corridors is supported. Sites in strategic locations such as the Brentwood Enterprise Park at Junction 29 of the M25 are particularly well suited to meeting needs of new development within the Borough during the plan period whilst minimising negative environmental or amenity mpacts in line with the Council's policies and those set out within the NPPF.

Policy 5.2: Housing Growth

Representation ID: 15965

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: St Modwen Properties PLC

Number of people: 2

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

The stated objective of the plan to meet full objectively assessed housing needs
is strongly supported. In order to satisfy the duty to cooperate the Council will need to liaise closely with its neighbouring authorities in relation to all strategic matters.

The provision of 362 dwellings per annum over the plan period is supported and the importance of strategic sites and jobs provision ill of course be particularly important to support such growth in
sustainable manner. In this context, deliverable and available sites within single ownership such as the Brentwood Enterprise Park will be especially important in order to provide for phased
delivery throughout the plan period.

Policy 5.3: Job Growth and Employment Land

Representation ID: 15967

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: St Modwen Properties PLC

Number of people: 2

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

Consideration should also be given to the findings of the Economic Futures Study, even higher levels of employment land would be required in order to for jobs to meet needs within the plan period. We suggest that the final paragraph of Policy 5.3 is amended as follows:

"Providing for this many jobs will require a total of 32.8 hectares of new employment land as a minimum".

Policy 6.6: Strategic Sites

Representation ID: 15968

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: St Modwen Properties PLC

Number of people: 2

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

The identification of the Brentwood Enterprise Park as a strategic site is strongly supported which recognises the critical importance of the sites to delivering the Plan's overall objectives.

The inclusion of an individual policy within the plan for each of the sites is supported
and will assist with providing further certainty as to delivery and clarification when bringing forward outline or detailed planning applications on the site.

Policy 7.1: Dunton Hills Garden Village

Representation ID: 15970

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: St Modwen Properties PLC

Number of people: 2

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

Paragraph 7.8 states that "It is recognised that the A127 highway is constrained and further work will need to be undertaken [...]" Rather than currently constrained, it is more accurate to identify that it's forecast to be under increased pressure in future years with the realisation of local plan development; for further examination with Highways England this should probably apply to the M25 Junction 29 as a key gateway for the borough, including direct access to the Brentwood Enterprise Park.

Policy 8.2: Brentwood Enterprise Park

Representation ID: 15979

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: St Modwen Properties PLC

Number of people: 2

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

The allocation of Brentwood Enterprise Park is strongly supported. Request that the following changes are made:
- The policy wording should formally state that the site is allocated for employment
development and removed from the Green Belt.
- Wording in the plan should allow for ancillary and supporting uses (i.e. "principally use classes B1, B2 and B8 instead of just "use class B1,..."

Policy 8.2: Brentwood Enterprise Park

Representation ID: 15980

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: St Modwen Properties PLC

Number of people: 2

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

Criteria a is currently superfluous and could potentially lead to a degree of unnecessary uncertainty or potential delay of delivery of jobs and employment land on the Brentwood Enterprise Park site. The employment uses considered appropriate on the Enterprise Park site are already detailed within the policy and therefore it is considered that criteria (a). should be removed from the plan in order to produce a predictable and efficient planning policy in line with the NPPF.

Policy 8.2: Brentwood Enterprise Park

Representation ID: 15981

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: St Modwen Properties PLC

Number of people: 2

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

In accordance to criteria c, areas required for structural landscaping, earthworks and planting extend to a significant area to the south and east of the site. Therefore the BEP allocation should include this area of land, as this will allow for work to be undertaken to most appropriately mitigate the proposals.

Policy 8.2: Brentwood Enterprise Park

Representation ID: 15993

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: St Modwen Properties PLC

Number of people: 2

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

We have no issue with developments requiring a Green Travel Plan, however clarification is sought regarding how a Travel Plan is proposed to link the site with Brentwood, Shenfield, West Horndon and Dunton Hills Garden Village. If this means that the Travel Plan should consider green/sustainable links to these places, we would suggest that the policy should be reworded accordingly.

Policy 8.2: Brentwood Enterprise Park

Representation ID: 15996

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: St Modwen Properties PLC

Number of people: 2

Agent: Strutt & Parker LLP

Representation Summary:

Site 101A represents a new strategic employment allocation whereas the land at Codham Hall North (101B) consists of the allocation of existing employment uses. For this reason, as set out elsewhere in this representation, we consider it more appropriate to cover the requirements for site 101A within the Policy 8.2 and cover site 101B within the general employment allocations within the plan. Whilst the sites will have a complementary role this better reflects the role that these sites will play in meeting employment needs and the strategic employment provided at Junction 29.
