Respondent: Herongate and Ingrave Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Brentwood Borough Council acknowledge that 80% of growth from 2015-2033 will be from people moving into the borough from other parts of the UK. There is no local housing need to build on Brentwoods 2005 Green Belt. Green Belt is a material constraint 'which may restrain the ability of an authority to meets its need'.

Draft Local Plan

Draft Plan Spatial Strategy

Representation ID: 15973

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: Herongate and Ingrave Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Do local planning authorities have to meet in full housing needs identified in needs assessments? Local authorities should prepare a Strategic Housing Market Assessment to assess their full housing needs. However, assessing need is just the first stage in developing a Local Plan. Once need has been assessed, the local planning authority should prepare a Strategic Housing Land Availability Assessment to establish realistic assumptions about the availability, suitability and the likely economic viability of land to meet the identified need for housing over the plan period, and in so doing take account of any constraints such as Green Belt, which indicate that development should be restricted and which may restrain the ability of an authority to meet its need. Revision date: 06 10 2014.
Clearly Brentwoods Green Belt does 'restrain the ability of an authority to meet its need'.

Respondent: Herongate and Ingrave Parish Council

Representation Summary:

Among a number of court cases, relating to greenbelt being a restraint on housing targets, is the following http://www.stalbans.gov.uk/Images/2013%20EWCA%20Civ%201610_tcm15-,38904.pdfthe
Within paragraph 6 of the Court of Appeals judgement its states;
'There is no doubt, that in proceeding their local plans, local planning authorities are required to ensure that the "full objectively assessed needs" for housing are to be met " as far as is consistent with policies st out in this framework". Those policies include the protection of greenbelt land. Indeed, a whole section of the framework, Section 9, is devoted to that topic, a section which begins by saying " The Government attaches great importance to Green Belts": Para 79. The Framework seems to envisage some review of Green Belt boundaries through the new Local Plan process but states that " the general extent of Green Belts across the country is already established." It seems clear, and is not in dispute in this appeal, that such a Local Plan could properly fall short of meeting the " full objectively assessed needs" for housing in its area because of the conflict which would otherwise arise with policies on the Green Belt...'.
Clearly this Court of Appeal judgement demonstrates Green Belt as a constraint to meeting " full objectively assessed needs" for housing. Brentwoods proposed LDP is particularly damaging and excessive in its proposed housing targets and there is absolutely no need for any re-designation of Green Belt for development.

Draft Local Plan

Draft Plan Spatial Strategy

Representation ID: 15978

Received: 13/05/2016

Respondent: Herongate and Ingrave Parish Council

Representation Summary:

The greenbelt has, by and large, held firm to the original ideals for being set up as a green lung for London and to prevent urban sprawl. This proposed LDP is a full on frontal assault on the Green Belt and any re-designation of greenbelt land will create a precedent for its demise, as a whole, with subsequent LDP's every 10-15 years.
