Possibly more Housing around Billericay
New Site 1 – This is proposed as a north eastward extension to H 27 (The Southend Rd site). The developer has not stated any number of homes: the area would appear to support around 300 additional homes. No access plan.
New Site 2 – This new site (Foots Farm, behind St Peters School ending at the Guildprime Business Centre) is proposed for 150 additional homes. Road access from Southend Rd.
New Site 3 – This new site (behind Maitland Lodge, Southend Rd) is proposed for 44 new homes. Road access from Southend Rd.
New Site 5 – This is proposed as an extension to H 21 (South of London Road at Greenleas Farm) adding 115 new houses to the 180 in the draft Local Plan. Provides the start of the proposed SW Relief Road with a junction at London Rd and access to the site.
Alternative Site 4 – This revives consideration of the area previously rejected site (known as PADC14), between Outwood Common Road and Outwood Farm Road, to provide 430 new houses. In the draft Local Plan this is a Landscape Protection Area. Road access from Outwood Common &/or Outwood Farm Roads.
Alternative Site 9 – This proposal extends H 23 (Land East of Frithwood Lane) to accommodate an additional 195 new houses on the expanded site that was originally for 330. Further expansion is offered to fund infrastructure (primarily the Relief Road). Road access by means of SW Relief Road on to Laindon Road.
Alternative Site 10 - This proposal extends H 24 (Land South of Windmill Heights) to accommodate an additional 100 new houses on the expanded site that was originally for 70. Road access from the A 176 or Kennel Lane.
This means we face potentially 1334 extra new homes, almost all on Green Belt,
in addition to the 1740 already in the draft Local Plan.
Furthermore there is no additional transport infrastructure mentioned in any document.
This consultation which ends on 15th December 2016 is limited in scope. Comments will only be welcomed on the seventeen new/alternative sites being promoted (across the Borough) . Representations on these proposals, and also on the cumulative impact of the proposals alongside other proposals set out in the Draft Local Plan would be accepted. New representations on the Draft Local Plan or proposals contained within it however, will not be accepted, and would be classified as inadmissible.
BAG’s interpretation of these constraints is that residents will need to link any criticism of Infrastructure provision to the cumulative impact of the additional housing now being considered.
