Amend paragraph as follows:

At least two vehicular access/egress points onto and off the site for vehicular traffic should be provided from Rawreth Lane and London Road INSERTED:; at least one point should link to Rawreth Lane and at least one point should link to London Road. DELETED: The site should be configured such that the majority (in the region of two thirds) of dwellings are accessed from London Road. The potential to provide a circular link INSERTED: within the development area with one strategic access point and one secondary access point onto London Road should be explored. A bus link will be created between Rawreth Lane and London Road (see Figure 7). However, the road layout within the site DELETED: will INSERTED: should be such that there is no link for private cars between Rawreth Lane and London Road through the site. This could take the form of bus gates, cameras, and/or other forms of engineering to ensure that the relevant section of road is only suitable for buses. This should be determined at the planning application stage in consultation with the relevant bus company and the local highways authority. In addition a Traffic Regulation Order would be required to restrict movement for other road users along this route. However, a link between London Road and Rawreth Lane for all forms of transport may be explored. The route should be such that it would not encourage its use as a ‘through-route’ between Rawreth Lane and London Road. The options for this site INSERTED:, including the distribution of traffic between Rawreth Lane and London Road, should be explored in consultation with Essex County Council highways.

The playing field to the south of the site along London Road should be relocated. A replacement sports field with new ancillary facilities together with a new club house will be required to be provided ahead of any removal of the existing facility so as to ensure the continued and uninterrupted operation of this valuable community facility. The replacement facilities provided should INSERTED: be of at least an equivalent standard and should take into consideration the findings of the Playing Pitch Strategy. The new structure will be required to be built to the BREEAM (Very good) standard thus providing a new, efficient and environmentally friendly establishment which will be of great advantage to the community as a whole and to the operators of the Sports and Social club. INSERTED: The replacement facilities will be expected to be built in a location which is accessible to the local community, whilst allowing for social events within the club house, and DELETED: It should be located within the green buffer to the west of the site, although the arrangement of the facility should be such that the clubhouse and associated development are positioned adjacent to the residential settlement to the east and integrated into the development. The new clubhouse will be expected to be built within 340 metres of the existing location and will be served by a new road. However, an alternative location within the vicinity may be acceptable if this is shown to be more appropriate. Additionally this facility should be well connected to the pedestrian and cycling network. INSERTED: It may be located within the green buffer to the west of the site, however, t DELETED: The siting and design of the relocated facility should be determined in consultation with Sport England.
