Representations on Preferred Options Local Plan - SS15: Tiptree

Representation ID: 3048

COMMENT Bloor Homes (Sam Hollingworth) represented by Strutt & Parker (Sam Hollingworth)

Summary:

The identification of land at Maldon Road as a broad area of growth is supported.

Land at Maldon Road, Tiptree (TIP09/ C104) benefits from a lack of physical constraints and represents a sustainable location for new homes.

We are committed to working with the Parish Council. However, the Local Plan should ensure policies are in place to deliver housing to meet needs in full and to support the growth of Tiptree, in the event that a neighbourhood plan facilitating this does not materialise.

OBJECT Bloor Homes (Sam Hollingworth) represented by Strutt & Parker (Sam Hollingworth)

Summary:

It is important that the policy makes clear that the neighbourhood plan will need to allocate a minimum 600 dwellings and this figure is not to be treated as a ceiling which should not be exceeded. The statement 'up to' is at odds with the minimum figure in SG2.

If the Tiptree NP were to fail there is a risk that the flexibility of the Borough's strategy would be undermined and it may lead to a disproportionate level of housing growth directed to less sustainable settlements.

Representation ID: 2801

COMMENT Highways England (Mark Norman)

Summary:

There are long standing access problems to the A12 at this location. These should be looked at before these sites are allocated. A possible solution may be an all movement junction to the north of Kelvedon. This could have an affect on traffic movements over a large area, which would need to be carefully assessed before any firm conclusions could be drawn. Consideration would also need to be taken of the A12 and A120 widening proposals.

COMMENT Mr Roger Mannion

Summary:

Tiptree policy SS15 para 6.195 refers to Kelvedon station and states that Tiptree has a reasonable bus service............. But no mention that there is limited or no service to Kelvedon or Witham - I think it should!

Under para 6.201 Colchester refer to their housing trajectory which includes Grange Rd and the Wilkins site but does not include Chapel Rd, we may want it to, unless these form part of the 600 dwellings under the neighbourhood plan!?

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

Summary:

SS15: Tiptree

We note that the broad areas of growth indicated on the maps, to be brought forward through the Tiptree Neighbourhood Plan may affect designated heritage assets. As the Neighbourhood Plan and the site allocations are developed consideration of these heritage assets and their setting is required in order to determine appropriate locations and densities for growth.

COMMENT Tiptree Parish Council (Mrs McSweeney)

Summary:

Paragraph 6.195 refers to rail station at Kelvedon, it does not mention that there is a very limited (and on some days, non existent) bus connection between the station and Tiptree.

Para 6.201 - the housing trajectory does not include granted planning permission given for 39 properties in Chapel Road. These are not included within the 600 houses preferred to in para 6.200

The Tiptree map does not show open spaces behind Winston Avenue and Chapel Lane. The map also refers to open space at Thurstable School, but this has very limited access to members of the public.

COMMENT Natural England (Kayleigh Cheese)

Summary:

SS15 Tiptree - Tiptree Heath SSSI.
The allocation in Tiptree falls within Natural England's Impact Risk Zones (IRZ's) and 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 amending after the HRA completed. SSSI's such as Tiptree Heath are open access and already show signs of being under pressure from visitors. Green infrastructure provision is essential to reduce impacts from recreational disturbance at these sites.

Representation ID: 1136

OBJECT Greene King plc represented by David Russell Associates (Mr David Russell)

Summary:

We agree with Policy SS15's target of around 600 additional dwellings. However, we foresee problems with the broad areas of growth indicated by the arrows on the Tiptree Policy Map.

Firstly, these will be an unnecessary constraint on the Neighbourhood Plan. Secondly, we believe that three of the broad growth directions shown on the Policy Map are unsuitable.

Our clients' site 193 could provide 50-60 dwellings in a sustainable location. The site has defensible boundaries, there are no constraints on availability, it is in one ownership and can be made available early in the plan period.

Representation ID: 819

COMMENT Mrs Susan Allen-Shepherd

Summary:

Parts of the Tiptree settlement review are unclear.
Page 76 refers to sites TIP 2 & TIP29. It isn't clear whether TIP 2 is TIP02 or TIP28 (TIP 28 & 29 have previously been described as Red near the top of page 75)

Page 76 following paragraph 'This whole area ...' seems to be out of context. It does not seem to relate to the previous paragraph. So it there a paragraph missing or should this paragraph be somewhere else?
