Provision of an additional 15 authorised pitches for Gypsy and Traveller caravans by 20118, to achieve a total of 1822 pitches.

The single issue review (Accommodation for Gypsies and Travellers and Travelling Showpeople in the East of England) set a total allocation of 18 pitches to be achieved by 2011 through the provision of 15 additional pitches to those already authorised. Given the delays to the Core Strategy examination, this allocation cannot be achieved in the given timeframe. This figure, however, was based on a baseline position of three pitches, which were authorised by 2006. As at July 2010, there were seven private Gypsy and Traveller pitches in the District. The single issue review which set the requirement for pitch provision by 2011 also set an annual 3% compound increase in pitch provision requirement beyond 2011. This equates to the provision of 15 pitches by 2018 in addition to the seven authorised pitches in order to achieve a compound increase in provision to 22 pitches to meet the requirements of the review.

The single issue review (Accommodation for Gypsies and Travellers and Travelling Showpeople in the East of England) set a total allocation of 18 pitches to be achieved by 2011 through the provision of 15 additional pitches to those already authorised. Given the delays to the Core Strategy examination, this allocation cannot be achieved in the given timeframe. This figure, however, was based on a baseline position of three pitches, which were authorised by 2006. As at July 2010, there were seven private Gypsy and Traveller pitches in the District.

This programme is anticipated to last 15 years and brings together investment in ICT and buildings. The aim is to develop 21stCentury environments that inspire learners, educators and local communities to become successful life-long learners. Essex County Council will lead in the implementation of the BSF programme for the county and the District’s four secondary schools are included in waves 4-6 of this. Rochford District Council will support the development of the BSF programme in the District by supporting the renovation and redevelopment of school premises, including their expansion to increase capacity.

The text has been deleted to reflect the latest position in light of alternative management arrangements/ potential closure of the Leisure Centre.

97

9.45

Opportunities to accommodate playing pitches outside of the Green Belt are welcomed, as this will often provide facilities in more accessible locations, particularly if pitches are accompanying other visitor-generating activities. In this respect, there is an opportunity to accommodate additional playing pitches to the rear of Rayleigh Leisure Centre. When considering proposals for playing pitches outside of the Green Belt, many of the same issues (e.g. accessibility, residential amenity etc) will still apply.

Five new football pitches have been completed at the proposed location.

97

9.47

The Council will produce update the existing Playing Pitch Strategya Supplementary Planning Document on playing pitch provision which will include a more up-to-daten analysis of the supply and demand of pitches, together with a quantitative and qualitative assessment of future need.

The inspector requested additional text to be inserted to explain the purpose and weight of this SPD following the hearings sessions in May 2010.

109

10.27

National government policy, as stated in Planning Policy Guidance Note 13, has made it clear that parking policies should be used as part of a range of measures to promote sustainable transport and reduce reliance on the private car. It did state that Local Authorities should not apply minimum parking standards to development, but the requirement to set maximum parking standards was deleted in amendments to Planning Policy Guidance Note 13 in January 2011. The Council have always been concerned that limiting parking at the origin of trips, i.e. homes, may lead to excessive on-street parking, to the detriment of highway safety and efficiency. As such the Council have sought to maintain minimum standards in certain cases. Planning Policy Statement 3 indicates that local circumstances should be taken into account when setting standards, and that proposed development should take a design led approach to the provision of car parking space. This will enable the provision of car parking spaces that are “well integrated with a high quality public realm and streets that are pedestrian, cycle and vehicle friendly.”

This is to update the position on amendments which have been made to paragraphs 49 to 56 of PPG 13 (i.e. parking standards and charges) after the submission of the Core Strategy in January 2010.

109

10.28

Our current parking standards are set out in Parking Standards Design and Good Practice Supplementary Planning Document (Adopted December 2010). These standards are based on evidence developed by Essex County Council in conjunction with the Essex Planning Officers Association. Supplementary Planning Document 5 – Vehicle Parking Standards. This seeks to limit the level of parking at trip destinations and residential development in certain circumstances, whilst applying minimum parking standards to residential schemes within other situations.

The updated SPD on Parking Standards Design and Good Practice has now been adopted, and supersedes SPD5 – Vehicle Parking Standards.

110

10.30

Essex County Council in conjunction with the Essex Planning Officers Association concluded in its is currently undertaking a comprehensive review of car parking standards and initial conclusions are that a move to minimum standards at trip origins (residential planning) and maximum standards for trip destinations is appropriate, acknowledging the fact that limited parking availability at trip origins does not necessarily discourage car ownership and can push vehicle parking onto the adjacent public highway, diminishing streetscape and potentially obstructing emergency and passenger transport vehicles.

The text in the Core Strategy Submission Document has been amended to reflect the fact that the study has been finalised and adopted.

111, 112

Vision

Replacement of dates in the vision section for the Economic Development chapter with ‘Short / Medium / Long Term’.

The dates expressed in the Economic Development chapter of the 2009 Core Strategy Submission Document are no longer applicable.

117

11.22

The Airport Masterplan 2005, prepared by London Southend Airport, sets out a vision for how the airport could grow towards being a regional airport based on using its current runway (length 1,610 metres), but with the provision of new passenger infrastructure in the form of a railway station for the airport and investment in new passenger terminal facilities. The importance of the railway is fundamental to increasing the attractiveness of the airport to potential airline operators as it increases the size of the passenger catchment to include core markets within London (by reducing the travel time to the airport). With this investment, the Airport Masterplan indicates there is the potential to increase passenger movements at the airport to around 1 million passengers by 2012 and up to 2 million passengers by 2030.

The text in the Core Strategy Submission Document has been amended to reflect the latest situation of passenger movement of the airport.

124

Vision

Replacement of dates in the vision section for the Retail and Town Centre chapter with ‘Short / Medium / Long Term’.

The dates expressed in the Retail and Town Centre chapter of the 2009 Core Strategy Submission Document are no longer applicable.

125

12.7

National policy on town centres (Planning Policy Statement 4: Planning for Sustainable Economic Growth (PPS4)) Planning Policy Statement 6 – Planning for Town Centres (PPS6)) states that Local Authorities should quantify the need for additional retail development and then identify locations for such development by applying a sequential approach which prioritises town centre locations. The District supports this approach as a means of ensuring the vitality and vibrancy of Rayleigh, Rochford and Hockley town centres.

Planning Policy Statement 4 (PPS4) published in December 2009 has replaced Planning Policy Statement 6 – Planning for Town Centres (PPS6). The text in the Core Strategy Submission Document has been amended to reflect this change in national policy.
