Representations on Preferred Options Local Plan - EC2: East Colchester Hythe Special Policy Area

Representation ID: 3025

COMMENT Sainsburys (Ms Caroline Huett) represented by Indigo Planning (David Hodgetts)


Sainsburys is generally supportive of the council's objective of the development of a mix of uses in this area. There should however be sufficient flexibility in the policy to encourage appropriate new development to come forward without being overly prescriptive. The new Sainsburys store should be allocated as a centre.

COMMENT Environment Agency (Mr Martin Barrell)


support many parts of this policy but we are unsure of the inference in the bullet point with the wording "Manage flood risk pragmatically, further to Flood Risk Management policy DM23". Further discussions requested on this point.
Residential moorings - should also consider any flood risk implications. This should include access to the moorings from land in a flood scenario.

The final paragraph of this policy should make reference to the need for development to contribute towards infrastructure that is currently needed to provide adequate capacity for surface water management (and not just responding to constraints).

Any regeneration of he Hythe area should consider any adverse impact on local sensitive biodiversity habitats that may be particular to the character of the Hythe area. This would include protecting important flora and fauna on the dock walls.

COMMENT Historic England -East of England (Ms N Gates)


EC2: East Colchester - The Hythe Special Policy Area

Hythe has been a conservation area at risk for a number of years. We note that the policy sets out how improvements for the natural environment will be made, but measures to address the at risk status for the designated heritage asset have not been explicitly made. We would suggest consideration in the supporting text, linked to an objective within the policy on how this will be addressed.

COMMENT Essex County Council (Matthew Jericho)


Proposed development of 600 dwellings would generate need for up to 180 primary and 120 secondary school places and expansion of facilities. Requirement for 54 additional childcare places could be met by new 26-30 place facility as there is some capacity at existing facilities. Include SuDS for all development- add policy requirement.
