The Green Belt Losses
This is a table from the latest District Council ‘allocations’ document, showing where new homes are going to be built across the district in the Green Belt (you can double-click on it to enlarge it)
However here’s a few points to bear in mind:
- It doesn’t include new housing on former industrial sites, such as the Rawreth Industrial Estate
- The government requires councils to show ‘flexibility’ , which means numbers could increase at a particular site.
- The 550 “North of London Road, Rayleigh” and 250 of the “South West Hullbridge” are actually in the parish of Rawreth. Though it’s still better than the 1800 we originally campiagned against.
