Draft Local Plan

Policy 5.1: Spatial Strategy

Representation ID: 15840

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Sammi Developments Ltd

Agent: Phase 2 Planning and Development Ltd

Representation Summary:

The Plan overly relies on its allocations in the A127 corridor, which are not the most sustainable locations for growth, given that transport links, access to jobs and services and town centre facilities are more limited.

Policy 5.2: Housing Growth

Representation ID: 15855

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Sammi Developments Ltd

Agent: Phase 2 Planning and Development Ltd

Representation Summary:

Provision of new dwellings in accordance with Objectively Assessed Housing Needs (OAHN) is supported. However The Plan relies heavily on one site (Dunton) which has no existing services and facilities whilst supporting infrastructure will take long time to deliver. This site should therefore be excluded from the Plan or reliance on the delivery of this site should be reduced.

The Council does not have a 5 year housing supply and the undersupply in year 1-3 will not be off-set by supplying over the minimum requirement in year 4-5. The Council needs to allocate additional sites at this stage to ensure that the 5 year requirement can be met.

Policy 5.2: Housing Growth

Representation ID: 15858

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Sammi Developments Ltd

Agent: Phase 2 Planning and Development Ltd

Representation Summary:

The Council should take account of previous under-delivery in identifying sufficient sites to meet housing requirements and also a 20% buffer in accordance with the NPPF.

The significant housing allocations at Dunton Hill Garden Village and West Horndon will contribute to the Basildon's housing market area to a greater extent than the Brentwood housing market area due to the location of these sites relative to the main urban areas. Sites on the edge of Brentwood and Shenfield can make a greater contribution towards meeting local need for housing within the Brentwood housing market area.

Additional sites on the periphery of the principal urban area of Brentwood and Shenfield should be allocated.

Policy 5.3: Job Growth and Employment Land

Representation ID: 15860

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Sammi Developments Ltd

Agent: Phase 2 Planning and Development Ltd

Representation Summary:

The identified total number of additional jobs of 5000 is a conservative figure that should actually be increased. The Economic Futures Report (2014) recognises the need to address the imbalance between people living and working in borough and the high proportion of out-commuting to London. The report provides three scenarios which identify job growth of between 5,750 and 7,440.

Policy 6.5: Key Gateways

Representation ID: 15862

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Sammi Developments Ltd

Agent: Phase 2 Planning and Development Ltd

Representation Summary:

This policy, which recognises the important role gateways providing an opportunity to provide a positive impression of the Borough, is supported. The Brook Street Roundabout (M25/A12/A1023 interchange) is recognised as being a key gateway and the representation site can make a positive contribution towards enhancement of this gateway. It is a suitable size for large Head Quarter Operations and users that require a large footprint of building, which cannot typically be accommodated within town centres, due to the more limited size of available sites.

Policy 7.1: Dunton Hills Garden Village

Representation ID: 15865

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Sammi Developments Ltd

Agent: Phase 2 Planning and Development Ltd

Representation Summary:

Development at Dunton seeks to provide 35% of housing for the Borough. Although a development of this type will bring forward some facilities and services, these are likely to be limited in nature and scale due to the limited size of the planned population. This site should either be excluded from the Plan or reliance on the delivery of this site within the Plan period should be reduced and other sites should be allocated adjoining the urban areas of Brentwood/ Shenfield.

The Sustainability Appraisal identifies the potential for significant negative effects arising from the draft Plan "given the uncertainty that remains regarding Dunton Hills Garden Village". In the same report, flooding is also identified as a notable issue.

Policy 8.2: Brentwood Enterprise Park

Representation ID: 15884

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Sammi Developments Ltd

Agent: Phase 2 Planning and Development Ltd

Representation Summary:

Although the M25 works site is well located in terms of access to the highway network, it is poorly located in terms of access by non-car modes. It is neither located within close proximity to facilities or services nor is residential development therefore employees working at this site will make all trips by car. The nearest stations are Brentwood and West Horndon and there is no bus route to either station. As a consequence it will only be attractive to a very limited number of low employment density transport related uses.

The principle of the allocation of this site is questioned, as is the extent of land identified. It is likely that development would be visible from the surrounding area, changing the character of the area, not only covering a far greater area than the former works site, but also having a far greater impact.
