Rochford District Council Planning Committee Meeting – 29th January 2015

On this page you will find some video footage of the the planning meeting. The public turnout for this was overwhelming and just goes to show how these plans are vigorously opposed by the residents of Rayleigh and Hullbridge.

 

 

 

Legal challenge

We are receiving many queries regarding the outcome of the legal challenge to the Rochford District plans which will lead to the building on the ‘greenbelt’ farmland between London Road and Rawreth Lane. A decision was expected imminently but we now understand we must wait until mid-December before any Judgement will be handed down by the High Court. As soon as it is available our supporters will be advised immediately.

Meanwhile please accept our thanks for the continuing support for our fund-raising appeal towards the massive £50,000 legal bill faced by our Chairman Linda Kendall. Thanks also to those permitting the siting of our current posters on their properties and the businesses helping us in this exercise. They are very effectively spreading our message to everyone that passes through our district.

RAYLEIGH, RAWRETH AND HULLBRIDGE RESIDENTS DO NOT WANT THE HUGE HOUSING ESTATES (CURRENT FIGURE is 1379 HOUSES), INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT AND 22 PITCH (will accommodate 44 CARAVANS) TRAVELLERS SITE ON THE GREENBELT ENTRANCE TO OUR TOWN. We will not have our homes devalued by these flawed proposals. We refuse to be grid-locked on our roads and for many to be subject to fear every time it rains in case flooding occurs. We are the people of this district and demand we are listened to by the organisation that takes our Council Tax to provide us with a SERVICE. We employ these people they are not our masters!! See our 38 degree petition asking David Cameron to intervene. Every local Parish Council, Rayleigh Town Council, over 10,000 people and now (belatedly due to an impending election we suspect) our MP are joining the chorus started by Eric Pickles MP, Minister for Communities and Local Government, in demanding the protection of our greenbelt. Rochford District Councillors must listen.

HAVE YOU SEEN OUR POSTERS

We currently have a poster campaign to try to keep everyone aware that the Rayleigh Action Group is continuing the fight to protect our neighbourhoods from total urbanisation.

Many thanks to those hosting and fixing the posters and to the very few who have helped in this process. We must thank Gordon Toal for his time and Stevie Turner for siting some of our posters for us. Especial thanks goes to the Annwood Estates team of Jan, Mick and Rob who provided the materials, paid for the prints and labour. Thanks to James for his work and help producing the artwork.

The main object of this campaign is to encourage our residents to object to the first OUTLINE PLANNING PROPOSAL 14/00627/OUT put forward by Countryside Properties for 500 houses off London Road and Rawreth Lane.

Whilst we await Mr Justice Lindbloms decision in the High Court.

We are awaiting Mr Justice Keith Lindblom’s decision on the case against Rochford District Council regarding the alleged failure to truly consult with the residents of Rayleigh, Rawreth and Hullbridge. The case was heard, and concluded on the 3rd October 2014, at the High Court of Justice over an extended period due to RDC’s legal teams personal difficulties and due to the production of a substantial volume of further evidence on the perceived final day of the hearing in June this year. The case concerns the huge programme of developments that RDC have chosen to blight our part of the district with over the next ten years. Those familiar with the details are aware of the inequitable balance of development this particular part of Rochford District is to be subject. Many other areas are virtually untouched by the schemes put forward by RDC Officers and Councillors who appear to have scant connection with our part of the district. Currently the first of these developments on our precious GREENBELT, for 500 houses (read a thousand cars, no upgrade in main drainage or roads), has been presented to RDC in the form of an OUTLINE PLANNING PROPOSAL from Countryside Properties on land off London Road and Rawreth Lane. Countryside Properties have presented this proposal as a company in control of land allegedly owned by three landowners named on the application a Mr. Cottis , a Mr. Levy and the Roman Catholic Doicese Of Brentwood. We would urge every resident across the district to consider objecting to this proposal (every adult member of a family is eligible so multiple objection from each household is possible). The Application can be accessed on RDC website under the Planning Application no. 14/00627/OUT. MAKE SURE YOU DEFAULT FROM THEIR PRE_SET COMMENT OPTION AND GO TO OBJECT TO ENSURE YOUR VOICE IS HEARD. It is not too late.
