Draft Local Plan

Duty to Cooperate

Representation ID: 15745

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Essex County Council

Representation Summary:

Considered essential that Highways England is actively engaged in future joint working on Highways Modelling with BBC and ECC to ensure that any strategic impacts arising from growth in the LDP, and wider growth is considered. Regular joint liaison meetings between PBA (Peter Brett Associates), HE, BBC and ECC should be established to progress the plan regarding highway matters. This will require the identification of mitigation measures on the strategic, local and wider highway network. Strategic issues will be further concidered through the Heart and Haven Strategic Transport Board, of which reference should be made.
). The IDP will need to identify the mitigation required, their costings, priorities and timescales for delivery, and phasing in relation to housing delivery.

Draft Local Plan

Policy 10.7: Infrastructure and Community Facilities

Representation ID: 15747

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Essex County Council

Representation Summary:

Reference to site/off-site related infrastructure being secured through planning obligations/section 106 agreements in Policy 10.7 is welcomed. At present the Draft Local Plan does not identify where necessary primary and early years and childcare infrastructure will be located or funded in relation to particular allocations. This will be essential.

Reference should be made, in Policy 10.7, to the adopted ECC Developers Guide to Infrastructure Contributions (2015), in relation to the level of contributions required from new development for the provision of essential infrastructure by ECC.

Draft Local Plan

Evidence Base

Representation ID: 15749

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Essex County Council

Representation Summary:

An Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) will need to be prepared and ECC is keen to assist BBC in the preparation of the IDP. An Infrastructure Delivery Plan (IDP) will need to be prepared to support the emerging Brentwood Local Plan, and identify infrastructure required. The Local Plan should make clear, for at least the first five years, what infrastructure is required, who is going to fund and provide it, and how it relates to the anticipated rate and phasing of development. For the later stages of the plan period less detail may be provided.
As a provider of key services and subject to statutory responsibilities ECC is keen to assist the Borough Council in the preparation of the IDP.

Draft Local Plan

Policy 5.1: Spatial Strategy

Representation ID: 15761

Received: 11/05/2016

Respondent: Essex County Council

Representation Summary:

Acknowledged that the Draft Local Plan is an emerging document and that on-going commissioning and publication of evidence base is necessary to inform the next iteration of the Plan. The Council will need to be satisfied that the Local Plan is supported by a proportionate evidence base and that all reasonable alternatives have been considered. As part of `duty to cooperate' ECC would seek further clarification needed on a number of issues with the Spatial Strategy:
- How the A127 corridor provides more opportunities for growth than the A12 corridor;
- Identification of any cross border implications of the spatial strategy given its role as highway, education, minerals and waste authority; and
- Identification of what infrastructure is necessary to deliver the spatial strategy, strategic and individual site allocations.
