"Brentwood Borough will continue to be a thriving, attractive and unique destination in which to live, work, and visit. We will continue to protect our key assets including the environment, heritage and character of the Borough but also maximise opportunities to meet our housing needs for current and future generations and provide the right economic environment for high quality investment.
Brentwood and Shenfield centres will provide a focus for retail, quality employment and exciting arts and cultural opportunities with super connectivity to and from London via Crossrail. The Borough will continue to thrive with a high-quality network of green infrastructure, parks and new connected green corridors, providing cycling and walking opportunities for all. A 'borough of villages' will continue to be a defining characteristic of the area.
Brentwood will grow sustainably with new development directed to urban brownfield opportunity sites, well planned urban extensions and key transport corridors. Dunton Hills Garden Village will provide a sustainable new community and service centre with significant investment in homes, employment, community and recreational facilities supported by a wide range of infrastructure, including schools and public transport."
 The Home Builders Federation estimate that when taking into account the supply chain and induced effects across organisations,operations and occupations, large scale housing development equates to broadly 4.3 jobs per new dwelling.

 The GTAA identifies 16 households where it has not been possible to determine the planning status. The needs of the households where an interview was not completed have been considered as part of the GTAA. Interview data collected and completed by ORS since the changes to PPTS in 2015 suggests that overall a national average of approximately 10% of households who have been interviewed meet the definition, in the absence of further information this ratio can then be applied to unknown households.
 NPPF Footnote 11: To be considered deliverable, sites should be available now, offer a suitable location for development now, and be achievable with a realistic prospect that housing will be delivered on the site within five years and in particular that development of the site is viable. Sites with planning permission should be considered deliverable until permission expires, unless there is clear evidence that schemes will not be implemented within five years, for example they will not be viable, there is no longer a demand for the type of units or sites have long term phasing plans. NPPF Footnote 12: To be considered developable, sites should be in a suitable location for housing development and there should be a reasonable prospect that the site is available and could be viably developed at the point envisaged.
 The potential primary school pupil yield from housing developments is calculated using standard ECC formula and assumptions. One-bedroom units and dwellings, such as student and elderly accommodation, are excluded from the calculation. The primary school yield from qualifying houses is thirty pupils per one hundred homes (0.3 per dwelling) with half this number – fifteen, expected from qualifying flats (0.15 per dwelling).
 As with early years and primary school pupil forecasts, the Council has applied the ECC formula and assumptions for secondary school pupil forecasts. One bedroom units and dwellings, such as student and elderly accommodation, are excluded from the calculations. For secondary schools (including post 16 education or sixth form places) the yield is 20 pupils per 100 qualifying houses (0.2 per dwelling) and 10 pupils per 100 qualifying flats (0.1 per dwelling). Houses are classified as dwellings with two or more floors and with sole access to private outdoor space and maisonettes, trailers and bungalows (not chalet style bungalows with an attic room) may thus be treated as flats.
