We are also consulting on the Jaywick Sands Design Guide Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).  This is a statutory consultation under the Town and Country Planning Regulations. You may respond using our consultation survey for the SPD, or by emailing consultationfeedback@tendringdc.gov.uk, or by posting us a response to Planning Policy Dept, Clacton Town Hall, Station Road, Clacton-on-Sea, Essex, CO15 1SE.

About the Jaywick Sands Place Plan

The regeneration of Jaywick Sands is a long term strategy.  To achieve this TDC have identified the following objectives;

• Transform housing quality and the built environment;

• Ensure long term flood resilience;

• Create greater connectivity to neighbouring areas;

• Attract commerce & new economic opportunities; and

• Improve people's life chances, access to public services & health & wellbeing

In order for these to be achieved, we are developing a Place Plan to guide the future development of Jaywick Sands. This will be shaped by the consultation that we are currently holding. You can read more in the Jaywick Sands Place Plan Interim Report.

About the Jaywick Sands Design Guide SPD

While we develop this long-term strategy, the Jaywick Sands Design Guide SPD will provide guidance to applicants who want to redevelop their plots in Jaywick Sands in the short term. Tendring District Council views the ongoing regeneration of Jaywick Sands as an opportunity to improve the safety of existing residents.  The approach is to allow new development, including new dwellings, in the area and to manage risk from flooding through bespoke building design rather than by resisting development. Clear guidance helps the applicant, the community and the Council facilitate regeneration which benefits the community as a whole.

Once adopted the Design Guide (SPD) will be a tool for property owners and developers, stakeholder and community members, and planning officers in determining planning applications and pre-application submissions.
