Castle Point Council: Have your say on 4,000 homes plan

Echo: Castle Point Council: Have your say on 4,000 homes plan Castle Point Council: Have your say on 4,000 homes plan

RESIDENTS can have their say on plans for 4,000 homes in Castle Point.

Residents will be asked for their opinion on the 255-page document, which sets out sites where the properties will be built over the next 17 years.

An eight-week consultation gives people in the area the chance to have their say about the proposals.

The council is also holding advice sessions where officers will explain the details of the plan.

These will take place on:

- Tuesday, February 11, between 4pm and 4pm at the council offices in Kiln Road, Thundersley

- Thursday, February 13, between 4pm and 7pm at Waterside Farm Leisure Centre, in Somnes Avenue, Canvey

- Wednesday, February 19, from 10am to 4pm at the Hadleigh Regeneration Shop in High Street, Hadleigh

- Tuesday, February 25, from 4pm and 7pm at the council offices in Kiln Road, Thundersley

- On Thursday, February 27, from 10am to 4pm at the Canvey Regeneration Shop in the Knightswick Centre, on Canvey.

Over the coming weeks, all households and businesses will receive a leaflet and questionnaire by post giving them the opportunity to have their say.

Alternatively, residents can put forward their views online by visiting http://castlepoint.limehouse.co.uk/portal/planning/nlp.

The consultation finishes on March 21.

Pam Challis, leader of the council, said: “Consultation on the draft Local Plan is starting.

“Your views are important to us and I would encourage all residents to let us have your comments on this plan to provide homes and jobs for our community over the next twenty years.”

Are we seriously expected to believe that any residents opinions will be taken into account.

The need for these extra housing projects, have now reached the Governments quotas for new builds, and as such will be going ahead, regardless of how ever many a W.I. meeting might object.

Oh dear - Lord Mountfield / Jubilation / blah blah blah has reappeared in his / her umpteenth ID to spout his / her usual garbage. What a troll!!!

The important thing is for everyone to get together to oppose the shoebox filth - bombard your council with objections to delay things - and vote UKIP in 2015 to get rid of the LIB / LAB / CON garbage.

NO need for any further housing in Essex - stop all further immigration - stop child benefit and all other benefits for more than 2 kids. Massive tax breaks for people with zero or one kid. PROBLEM SOLVED!!!!

And - please - anyone who supports this filthy over-development - please go and live somewhere like Tower Hamlets - it will be your nirvana!!! You will not be troubled by too much green space there.
(Except Mountfield / Jubilo - who just posts garbage for the sake of it!!!!).

To enjoy the rewards of complete infrastructual completion, for some it will mean misery, albeit for a short time, about 4 years.
The end result will mean enough housing to meet the increasing demands, bring much needed wealth into the areas, whilst ensuring our schools and siciety as a whole, grow from strength to strength.

I just logged in to read the consultation document. It is far too long and has too many technical phrases for the council to expect most local people to have the time to read it all, understand it all, and comment on it all.

But I suppose that is what they want.
