OBJECT Mr J Needs & Aston Unit Trust represented by Sellwood Planning (Mr R M Sellwood)

Summary:

Paragraph 5.2 of PPS12 states that DPDs should adhere to the same advice on justification and effectiveness as applies to Core
Strategies. Paragraph 4.36 is particularly cited and this states that the "most appropriate strategy should be adopted when
considered against reasonable alternatives".

It is considered that the emerging DPD does not accord with the advice since some of the options are simply not realistic when
considered against normal land use criteria for selecting sustainable urban extensions. Whilst not necessarily endorsing the strategic location, the following sub options are not seen as realistic and should be discounted

- WR2
- WR4
- WH1
- SC1
- SC2
- SEA2
- SEA3
- WGW2
- WGW3.

OBJECT Aber Ltd represented by Colliers International (Mr S Chapman)

Summary:


Option WGW2, this option has two separate unconnected parcels, which do not follow existing field boundaries so it would be difficult to create defensible boundaries, contrary to PPG2.

Option WGW3, this option has three fragmented parcels around the settlement. Two of the parcels relate well to the existing settlement, however, the largest southernmost parcel is detached from Great Wakering and would extend further south than the existing settlement, very close to the boundary with Southend. This option would not have defensible boundaries and would result in coalescence with the built-up area of Southend, contrary to PPG2.

Option WGW4, this option involves a single parcel to the south of the brickworks, which is detached from the existing settlement and would extend further south than the existing settlement, very close to the boundary with Southend. This option would not have defensible boundaries and would result in coalescence with the built-up area of Southend, contrary to PPG2.

Option WGW5, is located adjacent to the existing settlement but extends further west, which raises concerns with sustainability in terms of accessing facilities and services and the creation of a defensible Green Belt boundary.

The preferred option is WGW1 as this is developed in one location and is close to the High Street, and as such would add to the cohesion of the existing settlement.

OBJECT Inner London Group represented by Christopher Wickham Associates (Mr C Wickham)

Summary:

Option WGW3 comprises 3 separate plots. The plot south of the Star Lane former brickworks site is not supported as this would intrude damagingly into open countryside, would be remote from local services, would severely harm the openness of the Green Belt, would fail to provide a defensible southerly or easterly boundary to the Green Belt, and would result in the coalescence of settlements, contrary to PPG2. The remaining plots under WGW3 (i.e north of the Star Lane Industrial Estate and west of Alexandra Road), are both strongly supported for the reasons given in respect of Option WGW1.

OBJECT Stolkin and Clements (Southend) LLP represented by Firstplan (Ms K Matthews)

Summary:

Option WGW3 extends from the south of the Star Lane Brickworks and will reduce the openness between Great Wakering and Southend. The proposed site only adjoins the built up area on part of its northern boundary and it is open in aspect to the east, south and west. By virtue of its location it will have a significant impact on the landscape and the openness green belt.

The site also adjoins Star Lane Pits to the north and the ecological impact of siting development close to this Local Wildlife Site should be carefully considered.

SUPPORT SWAN HILL LTD (RAVEN) represented by MR Tony Charles

Summary:

The land south of the High Street (WGW3 north west part) is un-used and unsightly and perfoms no Green belt function. The land is well related to the village and enclosed by existing development. The site could be developed as part of WGW1 to provide 175 dwellings and could be developed along with other land at the disused brickworks and the industrial estate to provide an integrated conprehensive mixed-use development including housing, employment, new open space, and a local wildlife site. The development would bring environmental benefits to the local community.
