Draft Local Plan

Policy 5.1: Spatial Strategy

Representation ID: 15186

Received: 29/04/2016

Respondent: Punch Taverns

Agent: Plainview Planning

Representation Summary:

Strongly support the principle of focusing new development on land within the Borough's transport corridors, especially at Brentwood and Shenfield.

Support the release of Green Belt sites for development within the transport corridors, provided that:
- they have clear defensible physical boundaries to avoid further sprawl; and
- they are accessible to public transport, services and facilities; and
- they would have no significant impact on the Green Belt, visual amenity, heritage, transport and environmental quality including landscape, wildlife, flood-risk, air and water pollution; and
- they are deliverable over the plan period.

Policy 5.2: Housing Growth

Representation ID: 15188

Received: 29/04/2016

Respondent: Punch Taverns

Agent: Plainview Planning

Representation Summary:

It is essential that the policy makes it clear that the figure of 7,240 new residential dwellings to be built in the Borough is a minimum and does not represent a ceiling to housing growth.
Our client agrees that sites with potential capacity for 10 dwellings or more should be allocated as residential development sites.

Policy 5.2: Housing Growth

Representation ID: 15189

Received: 29/04/2016

Respondent: Punch Taverns

Agent: Plainview Planning

Representation Summary:

Object to the over reliance of windfall sites. The cited number of windfall sites is significant and has not been fully justified by the Council. It was based on the 'historic rate' that relies upon a period without an up to date local plan and where the housing target was suppressed.

Instead of the over reliance upon windfall sites, the Council should include more Greenfield urban extensions in the Green Belt.

Housing Allocations

Representation ID: 15190

Received: 29/04/2016

Respondent: Punch Taverns

Agent: Plainview Planning

Representation Summary:

Object to the exclusion of Spital Lane, Brentwood from the residential allocations.

The SHLAA assessment of this site states that it is suitable, available and achievable. Furthermore it is stated as being deliverable within a 0 to 5 year time period.

There is no clear reasoning why this site has been excluded, whilst the comparable sites at Honeypot Lane and land at Nags Head Lane have been included as residential allocations. We request that this land be removed from the Green Belt and designated as a residential allocation.

By way of an update, the land at Spital Lane has a site area of 0.25ha, otherwise this information is correct.

Sustainability Appraisal

Representation ID: 15191

Received: 29/04/2016

Respondent: Punch Taverns

Agent: Plainview Planning

Representation Summary:

The Sustainability Appraisal made a critical error area in respect to the flood risk of the site 035A, where it states that more than 10% of the site intersects a flood risk zone. This conclusion is wrong. A FRA report is attached to show 91% of the site is in Flood zone 1, within which all uses of land are appropriate according to the NPPF.

The site boundary could be redrawn to only include the developable area within Flood Zone 1 and still leave a a developable area of 0.2 ha and a potential capacity of 10-22 dwellings.

Site 035A should be reconsidered as a residential allocation.
