Christmas Tree Farm And Coombes Farm Applications Refused.
A government inspector has turned down a couple for appeals by developers for big planning applications in Hawkwell and Rochford/Stambridge borders – 330 homes at the “Christmas Tree” Farm site, and 326 at Coombes Farm.
The District council has an artcile about it on it’s website here. This is good news.
However the article has the quote:
It also clearly demonstrates that the Secretary of State, his officers and Inspectors are listening and taking account of the wishes of local people.
Perhaps the District Council should be listening to ” the wishes of local people” as well, in places like Hullbridge and Rawreth? For example, the Coombes Farm application on the Stambridge/Rochford border had some strong similarities to what the council is supporting on the Rawreth/ Rayleigh border.
