Draft Local Plan

023 Land off Doddinghurst Road, either side of A12, Brentwood

Representation ID: 15709

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Hatch Road Neighbourhood Association

Representation Summary:

In addition to the sites ability to deliver the spatial strategy the sites have also been assessed against criteria, including (but not limited to) the following:
* whether sites are suitable for housing;
Recent relaxing of government policy on the building of houses of Green Belt Land is aimed at small scale sites to encourage starter homes and selfbuild opportuinities and not the general building on Greenbelt land just because it is there.
All land is invariably suitable for development, whether housing or otherwise. The question which should be asked in this instance are:
Should Green Belt Land be built on in circumstances where the result will be the removing of the last area of Green Belt Land between Brentwood Town and it's Urban Sprawl and the loss of Pilgrims Hatch geographical separation from Brentwood Town's urban sprawl.

Draft Local Plan

023 Land off Doddinghurst Road, either side of A12, Brentwood

Representation ID: 15711

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Hatch Road Neighbourhood Association

Representation Summary:

Infrastructure provision:It is noted for this site that the urban density principle of 30+ houses per hector is being applied and yet its surrounding area to the North side of the A12 divide, does not have a density at this level. It is noted that the area of land to the South of the A12 divide has been included in this site where, not surprisingly, the urban density levels are higher than to the North but still not at the proposed development level. It would appear that you are applying this higher density level to the whole site and then adding some more. This would be out of keeping with the density of existing residential homes and areas of open spaces to the North having a detrimental impact to this area.

Respondent: Hatch Road Neighbourhood Association

Representation Summary:

Impact on Green Belt, landscape, visual amenity, heritage, transport and environmental quality including wildlife, flood-risk, air and water pollution;
This area of Green Belt is the last remaining area of this classification before the urban sprawl of Brentwood town. Development of this site will in effect remove the geographical existence of Pilgrims Hatch which currently enjoys this divide and which gives it it's own geographical indentity.

Draft Local Plan

023 Land off Doddinghurst Road, either side of A12, Brentwood

Representation ID: 15713

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Hatch Road Neighbourhood Association

Representation Summary:

Impact on highways: Working on the proposed number of 250 houses. There would be an absolute need to have highway provisions 250 to 400 resident's vehicles, working on the proposed urban density development level. To cope with this there is definitely going to have to be highway provision onto the Doddinghurst Road. Two other possible options to access and exit this site currently exist but in themselves would not be able to cope with the increased demand. Use of current roads within the Flowers Estate and neighbouring roads will only create the shifting of traffic onto already congested roads in Pilgrims Hatch. It should be noted that site entrance onto the Doddinghurst Road will almost definitely be sited on a bend which in itself produces unacceptable safety issues.
