ST1’s Parking Question

At the start of the week ST1 left the following comment concerning the Coral scheme:

Is it possible to get a copy of:

?Policy 1.1 (Safety) and Policy P7 (parking standards) Appendix G: Development Control Policies and Processes, Essex Local Transport Plan 2006 /2011.?

It would be interesting to see how it stacks up against the parking provision given in Downhall Park Way and surrounding roads.

I find it interesting that in the same meeting the Coral development can be recommended for refusal partly due to parking provision issues, but for the Rayleigh Lanes development this can be brushed over. Are the council assuming that the Rayleigh Lanes flats will be bought by commuters that work and socialise in the city, and will just use Rayleigh as a place to crash for the night? It seems they are so desperate for this development they can convince themselves that lack of parking is not a problem.

We asked the council for info on this and had the following reply from the planning officer:

The document quoted in the refusal reason is direct from the County Council. We have a hard copy somewhere but our understanding is that this is a new and emerging document from which they now refer. We do not have an electronic copy.You may be able to get one from highways direct. I doubt it can be viewed over their web site but I haven’t tried.
