THREE special “EU Exit” development orders have been issued by the government, granting temporary permission for creation of additional freight parking facilities in Kent and Essex for use in the wake of Britain’s exit from the European Union reports planning resource.co.uk

The orders passed last month – statutory instruments under the powers contained in the Town and Country Planning Act 1990 – were laid before the House of Commons on Thursday September 5, and came into effect on Monday September 9.

All three state that the permission granted under the order “ceases at the end of 31st December 2020 and immediately thereafter the land reverts to its previous lawful use”.

The orders give the green light for works on land within the North Weald Airfield site in Epping, Waterbrook Park in Sevington, Kent, and Ebbsfleet International Station, also in Kent.

In all three cases the orders grant permission for “use of the land for the stationing and processing of vehicles” and “use of the land for repairs to vehicles”.

In addition the order for the works at Ebbsfleet International permit the “provision of new access points to the land from International Way”, “use of the new access points for vehicles to enter and exit the land”, and a number of “new temporary structures, works, plant or machinery and lighting” around the site.

The only previous incidence of an EU Exit special development order being used happened in January this year to enable the use of Manston Airport in Kent as a freight parking facility.
