One landowner has withdrawn their plot of land which had been previously considered as one of the potential employment sites available for commercial development. Therefore on 29 December, the Neighbourhood Plan Steering Team asked for further comments from the public with regard to site preference.You are to put either a Yes or No answer for each of the three identified sites on the response form. You can say yes to more than one site, however, if you do say yes to more than one site, you should indicate your preference by putting 1, 2 (or 3 if required) against each.
It is important to note a few important points:
1) All this information is now in the public domain. Everyone will know about it.
2) Land off Brick Lane (E2)
The position and extent of the site has changed since the original consultation on land allocations. Agreeing that this is a suitable Employment site would mean that the Taylor Wimpey proposed development site on Fairfield Road would become 'infill' to all intents and purposes.
3) Land west of Thomas Mills High School (E1) Back in July 2015 this land was previously identified as potentially for Community use (C8).
4) The updated version of the Neighbourhood Plan is due to be published on the 18th January, the Appeals inquiry for Fairfield Road and Mount Pleasant starts on 19th January.
So you can see that the timing of this is critical and it is essential that you make your views known by the advertised deadline.
