Save Rochford District

from being ruined by the NEW Local Plan

Response to Rochford District Council’s Public Consultation for a NEW Local Plan called Spatial Options

Response to Rochford District Council’s Public Consultation for a NEW Local Plan called Spatial Options

It is not possible to create a single overall response which can take into account the very wide distribution of specific sites across the whole district. There will be views for Hullbridge, Rochford, Wakering etc etc

The consultation is muddled.  It calls for views on Spatial Options but it confuses residents by also asking for their views on specific sites.

The number of questions being asked are far too extensive. Not only do they have to contend with the volume and complexity of the consultation but even ‘how to’ respond is not clear.

New Local Plan: Spatial Options Consultation

What is the Spatial Options Consultation?

The Council is in the process of preparing a new Local Plan which will set the strategy for the District to 2040. The new Local Plan will replace a number of the adopted policy documents which form the local development plan for the District, including the Core Strategy.

Our new Local Plan will need to take a vision-led approach to planning for economic growth, housing, infrastructure and the environment.

We are currently consulting on the latest stage of our new Local Plan – the Spatial Options document and its accompanying draft Integrated Impact Assessment.
