Anger over housing proposals does not stop them being pushed through

FURY erupted as councillors clashed over broken promises about “perverse” proposals to build thousands of homes on Basildon’s green belt – but the controversial plan was still pushed through.

Basildon Council’s local plan, which outlines the sites the Conservative administration wants to develop until 2031, was pushed through by a Tory majority at the latest full council meeting.

The proposal – which sets out the sites to build 12,500 homes (9,100 on green belt) in the borough – will go out to public consultation in the new year giving residents their first chance to have their say.

The plan also outlines potential employment sites which could create 8,500 jobs in the borough, but the proposals, which are the result of a decade of deliberation, were not received well.

Nigel Smith, leader of the opposition Labour party and who represents Lee Chapel North, said: “When you were elected, it was part of your manifesto pledge to protect the green belt now your weasel words are trying to get you out of breaking that pledge.

“The plan is perverse and wrong and it means every bit of green space people enjoy in the borough will go the same way as Dry Street and Ballards Walk.”

Tony Ball, leader of the Conservative administration, said: “The Labour party is showing an ignorance of the planning system and that is dangerous.

“This is a policy that is deliverable and shows the one party that represents the whole borough is the Conservatives.”

The Tories were further buoyed when Labour’s Gavin Callaghan, who is the party’s candidate to take on MP John Baron at the next general election, said he wanted to see more homes built.

He said: “There is a housing crisis and we cannot afford generations of lost people and talent not coming to Basildon.”

An average of 800 homes a year will be needed, but it is up to developers to come forward and build on the designated land.

Green belt sites in Wickford, Billericay, Laindon, and northeast Pitsea have all been put forward, but they will need to be rubber-stamped by a Government planning inspector before coming into force.

As part of the plan, Basildon, Laindon and Pitsea will get 10,125 houses between them.

This includes 750 homes in Dry Street, and more than 100 houses in Ballards Walk, Laindon, as well as a further 100 properties pencilled in for Dunton fields off the A127 – all passed this year.

Labour councillor Allan Davies, who represents Fryerns, said: “There is so much space north of the A127 that it beggars belief that one more house should be built in Basildon.”

People can have their say for the first time on the plans, which will be phased and include ambitious ideas to build a new train station in Laindon, shopping centres, and several new schools in the borough next year.

It will go out to consultation at the end of January.

There is no need to build any houses at all. We are continuing to allow immigrants to pour in, so there cannot be a housing shortage, as we would surely not be so stupid as to let people in and breed if we did not have ample housing.
Basildon should set a lead by declaring that there will be no development whatsoever on green belt land until all immigration is halted.

There are more Brits living in other people's countries than migrants here. And migrants add more to the economy per head than local people. This is why the CBI supports immigration.

In fact the main growth need for housing is because of people splitting up - this is what is driving the shortage as is continual underbuilding of houses here since the 1950s - well before the racist migrant bashing theme.

WE need more houses. And we need more logic.

As Gavin Callaghan says there is a housing crisis. Can we expect to see around five thousand of these new homes to be built taken under the control of the Council in order to clear the housing waiting list?

Odds on we can't....

A) No, there isnt. And B) No, they dont. our population explosion is down to marriage break-ups? you're clearly a leftard, you cant use the term "racist" as you leftys use it to describe anything other than handing over your life savings on a silver plate to foreigners, like you just did.

Labour lecturing others on "weasel words" hahahahahahaha...

And how many homes did Labour build in their administration? Hmmmm

It is due to their policies of mass uncontrolled immigration that there has to be a massive house building programme. Mind you, the Tories are only tinkering with the problem and have done nothing to stem the tide. January 1st will see another potential 385,000 Romanians and Bulgarians coming here and putting pressure on an already groaning system.

And what about the disgusting racist attack on Nigel Le Gresley, UKIP county councillor for Wickford Crouch by a labour group member. One of the DECENT UKIP councillors in our area - and they subject him to the usual tirade of disgusting racist comments - at one point telling him he sounded like he had a "foreign" name. Makes me laugh, Labour lecturing others on racism when they are the biggest self hating bigots going. Anybody who disagrees with them is labelled with an "ism". And they need to put the Race Card away. It's looking VERY tattered these days. Even ethnic minorities find it embarrassing. I know because some of them have told me.

I was present at the meeting and all I heard was a lot of self indulgent, self satisfied bellyaching and sour grapes from the Labour lot who find fault in everything everybody else utters - and cannot stand to hear the truth about themselves. They tried - and failed - to silence me..

Get used to it. I am not a member of ANY political party and therefore not subject to any party whip. I am a taxpaying member of the public and I will express my opinion both in and out of meetings whether you like it or not so wear it. And I will NOT be attacked and accused of things I have never done by a bunch of halfwit "politicians" - and their pathetic followers - I have never even met.

And these selfsame politicians, eg Callaghan wasting money on investigations into things nobody is interested in. If he spent as much time getting on with helping his residents as he does wasting taxpayers' money on harassing the mayor and other individuals, we'd all be a lot better off. This obsession with the mayor is quite embarrassing. There are plenty of other more interesting subjects to get one's teeth into except you prefer not to look closer to home eh Callaghan. He who is without sin...

And yes, I do know the mayor - and other politicians from other parties too - and why shouldn't I have friends who are politicians? Is that against the law? I am not angling or a seat or even a membership so it shouldn't matter one iota to anyone else who my friends are. I have nothing to hide.

Callaghan PPC for Wickford and Billericay eh? Hmmm I wonder what your potential voters will think when they see certain screencaps myself and others have in my possession - and I am not just talking about the public haranguing of myself via Twitter either. Researcher for Labour's anti trolling MPSteve Rotheram is actually a troll himself. Hmmmm. More hypocrisy. I can't imagine the voters will be too impressed with somebody who attacks his constituents from his Twitter page... and what if you did win the seat eh Callaghan (which you won't), would you be sitting in the House of Commons tweeting vicious rumours about your constituents and other politicians? The public want viable, credible candidates these days, not people who indulge in personal attacks on people they don't know via Twitter.

Labour are the LAST to be slagging off other parties and other politicians. Always so holier than thou - till you take the lid off their expenses pots eh Nigel Smith.

Yourself and Baroness Basildon will not be worrying about fuel bills, not with £300 attendance fee coming in from the House of Lords. Funny that. Thought you wanted the House of Lords disbanded.

Hypocrisy with a capital H.

When any of you are in a position to preach to others and act as moral guardians and stand in judgement, I will be only too happy to listen. But it will never happen will it.

Because unfortunately you lot are the biggest case of pot and kettle I have ever seen.

Party politics - I've had it with the lot of you. I can't WAIT for next May when you come knocking on my door.

I got myself involved in party politics, served as a councillor and stood for parliament and the price I paid? To have my character assassinated and my good name dragged through the dirt by a lot of caterwauling lefties.

Well next year, it will be MY turn - and the turn of a lot of others who have been similarly treated.

I am happy to be free of it all.

As for my critics here, you are not in a position to stand as judge and jury either, not until you have had to endure the cr@p I have put up with for the last two years.

I will NOT be silent until these "politicians" stop backstabbing, lying and infighting and GET ON WITH SERVING THE PUBLIC.

Whilst you are performing your Christmas lamb and bleating on about how the world and his uncle picked on you, is there a slight chance you might comment on the subject matter of this report, which is the proposed building of a little over 10,000 houses south of the A127, whilst ignoring the fact that the main area of protected land in Basildon is NORTH of the dividing line, and that the reduction of the already low wages of the British people, will, with the help of the labour flooding in from foreign climes, will squash the last vestiges of decent living out of the people who have their whole history laid in this land, including the many calls to arms and loss of life in support of what was the greatest kingdom on earth now it is to be handed over to the foreigners to appease the already wealthy for the cheek of the british workforce wanting a decent living wage. Now we are back to the early 1950's and, with the help of people like you, we will return to Serfdom. Well done all you Tory supporters, whatever flag you pretend to live under!

Spend over £22,000,000 (WHAT! You thought the council were going to tell the truth about the real cost) turning a former scrap yard into a desert of rubbish and toxic waste by pretending it was GB.. and getting massive support saying how the council was dedicated to preserving GB land... while at the same time already planning to sell off and build on GB land...

How the foolish were fooled.
