Our client is broadly supportive of the Policies Map referred to at paragraph 1.19, but would like to raise a specific objection in respect of:
(i) the new east-west Green Wedge shown permeating through the East Harlow site;
(ii) the New Allotment provision in the same location; and
(iii) the Indicative East-West Sustainable Transport Corridor, as it passes through New Hall.

Our client is broadly supportive of the Policies Map referred to at paragraph 1.19, but would like to raise a specific objection in respect of:
(i) the new east-west Green Wedge shown permeating through the East Harlow site;
(ii) the New Allotment provision in the same location; and
(iii) the Indicative East-West Sustainable Transport Corridor, as it passes through New Hall.
Although our client accepts the principle of a new Green Wedge extending into the East Harlow site, the detailed location and scale of that Green Wedge should only be fixed through the Strategic Masterplan process (notably a Strategic Masterplan is one of the requirements listed in Policy HGT1). It is the strategic masterplan process that will assess the on-site constraints and opportunities in more detail and identify how best to accommodate the quantum of development and other supporting infrastructure (including green infrastructure) sought at East Harlow. Establishing the detailed location and scale of the Green Wedge (and the associated New Allotment provision) in the Local Plan could compromise the master planning process and potentially limit the site's ability to accommodate the full 2,600 dwellings envisaged within Harlow District.
Conversely the route of the east-west sustainable transport corridor, as it passes through New Hall, is shown and labelled as being "indicative", when a defined route is set out in the New Hall section 106 agreement to planning permission ref. HW/PL/04/0203. Our client's transport advisors are pressing Essex County Council (ECC) to call on the relevant developers at New Hall to implement this sustainable link as soon as possible. To encourage ECC to do so and to provide greater certainty regarding delivery, the Policies Map should show the approved alignment for the sustainable transport corridor, where it passes through New Hall.
For these reasons the Policies Map does not currently present the most appropriate strategy when considered against the reasonable alternatives - i.e. it is not "justified".
