There’s Still Time To Support The “5% Cap”

develmap5

It’s time to think about the core strategy again.

For each of the housing sites, RDC had proposed that slightly more homes could be built there if there was a shortfall elsewhere, but only up to a possible maximum of 5% extra. The inspector doesn’t want to have any limit on this possible extra housing, which is worrying.
You can object to this via the council’s website. The deadline is noon on January 17th.

You need to go to:

http://rochford.jdi-consult.net/ldf/readdoc.php?docid=190

You will need to register if you haven’t done so before (theres a link at the top.)

The key items in relation to the number of houses are MM18 and MM23

For example Chris Black has objected as follows:

MM18 :This 5% cap should be kept. The whole core strategy and consultation process has been based on these figures, and to allow a possible unlimited increase in these figures at such a late stage makes the whole process flawed. In addition the North of London Road site is so problematic, in terms of highways, drainage and coalescence of Rayleigh and Rawreth, that a 5% cap is particularly appropriate here.

MM23: These 5% caps should be kept. The whole core strategy and consultation process has been based on these figures, and to allow a possible unlimited increase in these figures at such a late stage makes the whole process flawed. Other sites may be becoming available, such as aT Bullwood Hall.

    Would urge any councillors who voted for the mass development of Rayleigh to get out in their cars this morning and see the chaos for themselves – 20mm of rain overnight and the area is completely gridlocked.. Time for a reality check (not for you Chris!)

    IF you lodged an objection to the Inspector’s interim report and, like me and others,
    have not received any acknowledgement, then you need to chase it because……..
    Others I know have and it is difficult to get a response, in fact some responses
    only cover some ( the minor points ) of the multiple objections raised.
    Chris – any chance you can clarify if RDC are choosing which objections will stand
    as part of this ” consultation” exercise ?.
