Response

1. What is your town's overall DPD? Please give name and an online link so I can access it (preferably in pdf format).
Brentwood Borough’s current development plan is the Brentwood Replacement Local Plan (2005). This can be viewed on the Council’s website at http://www.brentwood.gov.uk/index.php?cid=49.

As requested, a PDF version is attached – this version takes into account those policies that were saved beyond 2008, and so essentially only retains those policies that are saved and form part of the development plan as of now. More information about the Saved Policies can be found on the Council’s website at http://www.brentwood.gov.uk/index.php?cid=49.

2. Does your DPD contain a specific commitment to food growing, as part of new developments and/or redevelopments?

Mention is made of local food produce for sale as part of Policy GB19 Farm Shops and Retailing.

3. If your current DPD does not contain such a commitment, do you intend to introduce one in your next DPD?

The 2005 Local Plan will be replaced by a new Local Development Plan in time. The Council is currently preparing this and has undertaken several stages of consultation in support of this process. In the latest draft of the new Local Plan (Local Plan 2015-2030 Preferred Options for Consultation, July 2013), mention is made in policy regarding land valuable for food production or growing in Draft Policy CP2 Managing Growth, and Draft Policy DM32 Provision of Green Infrastructure.

Please find attached PDF of this latest Draft Plan. A revised draft for consultation is expected later this year. More information can be found on the Council’s website at www.brentwood.gov.uk/localplan.
