Jaywick Sands Consultations

Tell us what you want to see in the future of Jaywick Sands!

The consultation is now closed.

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Jaywick Sands consultations recently – we had a fantastic turnout with hundreds of useful comments. We have now got a much clearer picture about what to prioritise and we are already taking a number of steps.

We are starting work to inspect and improve the quality of private rented homes in Jaywick Sands – look out for our team who will be starting in early 2023. They will be working with tenants and landlords to ensure properties are safe, and taking enforcement action against landlords where required. 

The new business units and market on the Sunspot site will be completing in 2023 and we will be announcing how to take up units after Christmas. Watch this space for more information

The Jaywick Design Guide SPD will be taken to Planning Policy and Local Plan Committee and on to Cabinet for formal adoption on 27th January 2023.  This will provide clear guidance on how new developments, including replacement homes, should be designed – and will guide decisions on planning applications going forward.

We will be taking a report on the Place Plan consultation findings to Planning Policy and Local Plan Committee on 23rd January 2023.  The Agenda and reports can be accessed online here. The draft Place Plan will be developed over the next few months and we will be consulting the community on the draft plan in mid 2023.

About the Jaywick Sands Place Plan

The regeneration of Jaywick Sands is a long term strategy which will not involve the compulsory purchase of privately owned properties.  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.
