Updated message to our supporters

We-need-your-help11We have now been joined by the Hullbridge Residents Action Group with the aim to attempt to stop the loss of our Greenbelt around our area to massive building plans and the imposition of a huge Traveller site on the entrance to Rayleigh.

Remember RDC are planning over 1379 houses between Rayleigh and Hullbridge, a huge 15-22 Pitch Traveller site and a heavy industrial site right on the entrance to our town. The second industrial site planned for the London Road remains in their Core Strategy but is currently on the back burner.  Rayleigh Town Sports and Social Club have been confirmed in the Local Development Allocation Document ratified by RDC on the 25th February 2014 to be subject to removal to another site.  No alternative decision has been made in Council despite flyers to the contrary from the ruling party majority on the Council.  There are no plans for new roads, schools, flood or sewage upgrade etc etc.

Of the 5067 residents of Rayleigh who signed our objection (petition)  93% claim to have known nothing about these proposals.  Due to this apparent failure of Rochford District Council to adequately inform the residents we are presently engaged in a High Court battle to try to get a rethink of these proposals.  It is a very hard task and we have worked tirelessly to try to achieve that aim.  WE CANNOT PROMISE TO STOP THESE APPALLING PLANS BUT WE ARE TRYING.

In an attempt to stop this action Rochford District Council were in the High Court on Wednesday 11th June 2014 trying to stop the provision of a Protected Cost Order that would have served to possibly bankrupt the Claimant in this case Linda Kendall. Linda Kendall is a Rayleigh retired 66 year old widowed grandmother who is pledging funds from her limited pension provision to guarantee the legal costs of this action.

We are now asking all of our supporters to consider a donation towards the possible £50,000 legal costs she will have to fund.  Any amount will be gratefully received.  A list of donors can be seen here.

 

For those of you that have already donated to our fund please accept our grateful thanks.
