Representations on Preferred Options Local Plan - SS13: Marks Tey

Representation ID: 3107

COMMENT Marks Tey Parish Council (Mr. Allan Walker)


SS13 should be unchanged until further clarity of wider strategic implications are clear. Investigation should be undertaken to explore innovative ways by which evolving Neighbourhood Plan can link into wider strategy to form a Neighbourhood Plan 'Plus'.

COMMENT Environment Agency (Mr Martin Barrell)


Welcome the reference to water infrastructure capacity constraints within this section. Marks Tey) is served by Copford WRC which is over capacity by a figure equivalent to roughly 500 houses. This must not be exacerbated by further connections. Either upgrades need to be undertaken by Anglian Water and a new permit applied for, or sufficient capacity needs to be created by reducing infiltration into the system prior to development commencing.

COMMENT Environment Agency (Mr Martin Barrell)


No specific development site options are shown on the plan. Main River and surface water constraints must be considered as part of the strategic planning for this development area.

The Main River - 'Roman River' will require detailed modelling to be carried out to fully understand the fluvial flood risk and inform a sequential approach to the siting of development and the design requirements. We would seek to work with the Parish in the consideration of development site options during the evolution of the Neighbourhood Plan.

OBJECT Home Builders Federation Ltd (Mr James Stevens)


We note that a neighbourhood plan is being prepared for Marks Tey. However, if it does not become the location for one of the Garden Communities, we note that it has a housing allocation of zero in the draft plan (see table SG2). This is a highly sustainable location, as paragraph 6.182 acknowledges, so even if it does not become the location for a new settlement then it ought to provide some housing. We consider that the local plan should make a provisional allocation for this settlement in case it is not selected as the location for a new settlement.

COMMENT Highways England (Mark Norman)


Development here has the potential to have a severe impact on the Strategic Road Network. From the plan, it is unclear where access will be obtained from. There are also proposals to widen both the A120 and the A12 which may affect the site.

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


Given the substantial proposals relating to Marks Tey, we are surprised that the text does not reference the significant number of grade II listed buildings in Marks Tey, the scheduled brick kilns and the grade I Church of St Andrew. It is difficult to comment as which heritage assets will be affected is unknown. We note that the broad areas of growth indicated on the maps, to be brought forward through the Marks Tey Neighbourhood Plan may affect designated heritage assets. Consideration of these heritage assets and their setting is required to determine appropriate locations and densities for growth.

COMMENT Natural England (Kayleigh Cheese)


SS13 Marks Tey - IRZ for Marks Tey Brickpit SSSI. This policy should make reference to the Marks Tey Brickpit SSSI ("including an appropriate buffer area. All direct and indirect impacts to designated sites need to be assessed, for impacts such as recreational disturbance, water quality, water dependency and direct land take of functionally linked land. This should be fully covered in the SA. The policies may need to be amended after the findings of the HRA. Green infrastructure provision is essential to reduce impacts from recreational disturbance at these sites.

OBJECT Mr Sean Pordham


I have read the "Strategic Land Availability Assessment" and do not agree with many of its findings and recommendations. Much of the land being proposed is currently high quality agricultural land and has failed to get planning permission in the past due to access and safety. What has changed?

SUPPORT Mr Ian Melrose represented by Fenn Wright (Mr Roger Hayward)


We support the inclusion of Marks Tey within the proposed new Garden Community development but call for the allocation of additional small to medium scale housing sites around the village on a phased basis in order to gradually build up the community and other infrastructure ahead of the delivery of the longer term infrastructure and community benefits planned for the West of Colchester Garden Community.

OBJECT Mr John Wood


The plan seems designed to be unreadable. Apart from this, its flaws are a lack of any evidence that CBC has begun working on a strategy / set of strategies that deal with: Congestion due to current (let alone future) road problems, which will be very serious for M.Tey; improvements to rail services, again critical for MT; welfare infrastructure, ie. schools, health / care for older people. Further, there's no detail on garden communities, or the machinery to be set up to manage the whole housebuilding programme effectively, over some 20 years.There is much local concern over these issues.

OBJECT Mrs Kate Crabb


Assuming that the ambiguous term "alternative mixed uses" is actually code for "more housing development", then where exactly would the increased population be expected to find employment when in the same stroke, a significant patch of local economic area would be taken away? Long term, this plan and others like it, are simply unsustainable.

OBJECT Mr Richard Crabb


Increasing housing development (increasing population in the area) whilst withdrawing local economic areas (decreasing opportunities for employment in the area) defies basic economic reason. This plan, combined with other parallel proposals, would be devastating to the social, economic and environmental future of this area. We need to encourage local employment, not continually sweep away a sustainable economic future in favour of short term non-recurring profits from housing development.

I strongly object, not to new housing but to the lack of effective project planning and community engagement.

OBJECT Mr John Tring


Impact to roads, schools and medical centers has to be accounted for and improved first. The area is over congested with traffic, and roads are in a poor state of repair. How could the addition of extra housing be considered before these issues have been addressed?
