the objectives all seem reasonable, but they are too vague and non-specific and thus not easily measurable as the implementation of the plan proceeds. The council needs to make its objectives more identifiable if they are to be useful.

If the objective is to maximise the health and well being of citizens, as we suggest, then other objectives follow. The two rural districts have become very car dependent in the past couple of decades as public transport subsidies have been slashed, as new housing developments are built without any significant investment in cycling, walking or public transport.
We believe a key objective should be "To lessen car dependency for citizens of the two districts"

If the objective is to maximise the health and well being of citizens, as we suggest, then other objectives follow. The two rural districts have become very car dependent in the past couple of decades as public transport subsidies have been slashed, as new housing developments are built without any significant investment in cycling, walking or public transport.
We believe a key objective should be "To lessen car dependency for citizens of the two districts"
The way to achieve this would be to cease investment in new roads, but better maintain the roads we already have, invest more in public transport, cycling and walking. Planning objectives should steer developers towards homes within walking or cycling distance of public transport hubs and shops, GP surgeries and other facilities. In that way new developments do not increase car dependency.
This would improve health, help improve the sense of community in towns and villages, reduce congestion and pollution and cut carbon emissions.
We also object to the hidden economic objective in this document which is "growth" for the sake of growth. Not all businesses or villages want to grow. A thriving economy does not have to grow over all to ensure a good quality of life for people.
We completely disagree that the "Ipswich Northern Route" should be a priority or the "key economic driver of the county". Building more roads will create more car dependency and therefore more traffic, more pollution and more carbon emissions. Rural single carriageway roads through the centre of villages like Hintlesham which will feed this new northern bypass, will be choked by ever more traffic, triggering demands for more roads and more houses to provide the money for them, which in turn will drive more traffic and car dependency. There is no end to this vicious cycle that planners and successive governments seem to want to encourage. The long standing rural charm of the two districts, and the quality of life of its citizens and the natural environment including will be destroyed by the incessant demand for ever more roads and houses.
For the same reasons we disagree with the objective of "supporting the development of proposals for a Sudbury
Western Relief Road."
The county council spent £375,000 on a report in 2002 which concluded that the Western Relief Road was not the best solution to Sudbury's congestion problems. It recommended investment in public transport, cycling and walking and a PR campaign to show people that the authorities gave priority to walking, cycling and public transport in the town rather than cars. Even the 2016 outline business case, admitted that the Western Relief Road had not been found to the answer and that it could only be justified by building hundreds of houses and business parks on the Essex side of Sudbury.

In general support the objectives but with the reservations listed above.

Full text:

The Objectives seem to be appropriate but concerns exist regarding;
* Housing
Particular emphasis must be placed on providing housing that the local residents need and can afford to buy. Developers must be made to provide the Affordable Homes Tariff agreed at the planning stage.

* Economy
-In addition to supporting the "Ipswich Northern Route", steps must be taken to radically improve the road network in and around Sproughton, especially the junction of the A1071 and B1113, and the junction of the A1071 and Hadleigh Road. The designation of the B1113 as an Off Network Diversion Route serves to increase the importance of the need for these improvements.

-Any increase in the number of new homes and business premises in the locality, and indeed from further afield such as Hadleigh and Sudbury, will result in further increases in traffic volumes and delays at these junctions for both personal and business users especially at peak travel times.

* Environment
-Regarding the second bullet point; new development must avoid areas which are formal flood plains or have historically acted as flood plains. An example being the land between the A14 at Sproughton and the river Gipping, and the so called 'Island Site' behind the ex British Sugar site.

-We also believe the words "where possible" should be deleted to emphasize the importance of avoiding any increase to the flood risk that will undoubtedly arise if such areas are built on.

* Healthy communities & infrastructure
-It is essential that all necessary infrastructure services required to support proposed developments are delivered in good time and especially address the cumulative requirements arising from proposed developments in and around the Sproughton area.

-Whilst the District council themselves may not provide the infrastructure services, as the planning authority it should work pro-actively with providers to ensure that infrastructure needs are clearly understood and formal commitments are made to deliver them in good time.

Development needs to be balanced between homes and employment, encouraging inward investment, protect and enhance environmental asset, provision of necessary infrastructure and services.
Emphasis must be put on housing that local residents need and can afford. Radical improvement to local already strained transport networks is required and all infrastructure needs to be provided in good time.
A priority should be that communities do not lose their unique identities by over development, creeping coalescence and merging communities. Growth should be spread more pragmatically across Babergh rather than a few larger sites.
The draft Local Plan does not set out a large scale vision for the District. It comprises a top-down exercise in meeting Government-led numerical housing targets and avoids engaging in the debate of what that means for people in the District. For instance, it does not consider the type of discussion in north Essex where the solution to achieving growth has been to identify a garden village development to avoid filling up all the villages with new estates. In this way north Essex proposes to preserve the rural feel of the area, although it does come at the cost of blighting one location. At the other extreme is the concept of diverse and diffused expansion across the Districts, creating a merit based policy for controlled expansion of communities of all sizes, thereby creating sufficient economic mass for smaller communities to benefit from a wider range of services. Our communities deserve a broad-based discussion of different scenarios, not simply a re-hash of the status quo.

Objectives do not appear to be reflected well within the rest of this document

Full text:

The objectives are appropriate for the suggested housing need vision, however I do not find that they are reflected well within the whole document, especially many of the areas proposed for development which will destroy some of the best landscape and views. There is a lot of land out there so we don't have to build on the best of it, that is very short sighted.
Infrastructure must grow with or before commercial and housing growth or profiteer's will just stall and eventually refuse to pay leaving the burden on innocent council tax payers.
But my biggest concern is a lack of research as the vision and objectives appears to be based on very flawed out of date data, completely ignoring Brexit, and accepted as justification for inflated aspirations. The Vision and Objectives are not backed by any constructive policies to actually create growth either commercially of in housing beyond a belief that 'if it is proposed, it will come'. If the council wants growth it needs to attract it with incentives and better infrastructure, just building will make our county a worse place and if that happens the blame will be on this administration.

2 Objectives - The four headline objectives are correct. I am less certain of the inclusion of individual projects in the plan which is addressing the requirements for a 20-year period. The Ipswich Northern Route and the Sudbury Western Relief Road sound like County projects rather than District objectives. The vision can be consistent for the 20-year plan, but the objectives and the detail of the plan should be reviewed at 10-year intervals.

Why is this specifically named?
Especially agree with the 'flooding' protection statement under Environment which states "Ensure new development avoids areas of flood risk and reduce future flood risk where possible." as this is key to Water Lane, locally for example.
Also feel that we should have something that nods to local infrastructure (e.g. local roads, lanes, hills) for local developments... the heading is fine but too high level and makes no nod to improving the local infrastructure per developments.

No because there is not a mention of sustainability for the environment or sustainability for jobs given there is a higher proportion on lower wages in mid suffolk than other areas. Subsidising companies to provide unreliable employment while giving mid suffolk residents double stress of unstable work and being in the welfare system is not sustainable.

Full text:

The following comments are made to enhance the objectives and/or provide contextual information from an Essex perspective.

Environment

Under 'Environment' (p12), in addition to ensuring that 'developments avoid areas of flood risk and reduce future risk where possible' it is recommended that the need for new developments to attenuate surface water run-off though SuDS strategies is included. The term 'where possible' should be removed.

Healthy communities and infrastructure

The consultation document focuses on access to healthcare infrastructure and outdoor space but the Joint Local Plan could demonstrate how the environment can support wider reduction in health inequality and support the prevention agenda. It is essential that residents have adequate connectivity in both walking and cycling so as to ensure cross border movement.

Although it is acknowledged that the two districts are predominantly rural, this does not preclude the objectives also containing references to promoting these and other forms of sustainable transport, particularly where larger scale growth is to be planned.

Whereas the 'Rural Growth and Development' section states that 'Supporting the vitality of rural communities......are key objectives of the Council[s]' this objective is not identified in the 'Vision and Objectives' section, under the stated objectives. Correcting this anomaly (through an additional objective under the Healthy Communities and Infrastructure' theme) is therefore suggested.

While there are no direct impacts on ECC, it is recommended that Babergh and Mid Suffolk District Councils engage with Suffolk County Council Public Health, and ECC Public Health, for more detailed contribution and population and demographic data which may help with draft Local Plan preparation. The use of a Health Impact Assessment (HIA) can also promote improvements in health and healthy lifestyles as part of the process of the design and construction of new developments. Essex local authorities are including HIA policies in their new Local Plans.

It is noted the objective states 'to support the development of proposals for a Sudbury Western Relief Road project' (p12). Engagement with ECC as Highway Authority and local Essex villages, especially Borley and Middleton, will be crucial. ECC draws your attention to the following text in the Braintree Publication Draft Local Plan 2017-2033, which has now been submitted to the Planning Inspectorate for examination (9 October 2017).

6.171 The Halstead Bypass (A131) is a longer term proposal aimed at supporting the integrity of the A131 Primary Route, which runs from Chelmsford to Sudbury catering for longer distance traffic travelling from mid Essex and south Suffolk, and in combination with other Primary Routes, such as the A130 and A134 connects the A12 with the A14. As a result of combining the A131 route with other road improvements (such as the A120 at Braintree), only Halstead remains as a town that the A131 has to pass through.

6.172 The New Anglia Local Transport Body has agreed funding to develop the business case for a Sudbury Western bypass, which will enable the progression of design work, together with traffic modelling and environmental assessment. The delivery of this scheme and other planned infrastructure improvements in the area is likely to have a significant impact on traffic flows in the area.

6.173 The road at present is a single carriageway with a major pinch-point at the two mini roundabout junctions of the A131 Head St / A1124 Hedingham Road / A1124 Colchester Road intersection within Halstead town centre. The junction currently operates at capacity and will be further exacerbated in the plan period, with minimal opportunities for mitigation. There will be a significant need to encourage modal shift measures such as improving public transport and cycling, which is being considered by the A131 Braintree to Sudbury Route Based Strategy and Braintree Cycling Action Plan.

6.174 The Halstead bypass scheme was first developed and protected from development in the 1990s. Whilst the scheme has not come forward in the intervening time it remains a priority for the County Council and it is likely that growth on the corridor from north Chelmsford, Braintree and at Sudbury will result in a need to commence development work on the scheme during the plan period.

The focus on Economic development linked to Felixstowe appears strange given it is not in the district. It may be important but there should be more focus on the businesses in the district that generate their own direct economic benefit. As well as bigger businesses like Bosch, Muntons and PDG in Stowmarket there are many smaller rural businesses which themselves bring in direct external earnings to the district. These need recognition and support in infrastructure, staffing and resources.
