INFRASTRUCTURE

Updated 1st April 2018

FACTS about:

DUNTON

(Basildon Borough Council) Also referred to as – West Basildon Urban Extension (Green Belt to the West of Laindon)
300 New Homes

& DUNTON HILLS GARDEN VILLAGE (DHGV)

(Brentwood Borough Council - Greenbelt)
3,500 + New Homes & Gypsy/Travellers pitches (to be increased)

BASILDON & BRENTWOOD Borough Councils proposals for infrastructure are totally inadequate and very little, if any, actually intended to be provided.
In the case of BRENTWOOD – No infrastructure as on speaking to them going to rely on Basildon District services.

No Schools until after 2034 and then when?

DUNTON HILLS GARDEN VILLAGE

Please note that with the 19,440-19,760 new homes Basildon is allocated to build this alone will damage/overload our Hospital which now has BLack Days and Local Health Services besides Transport systems etc.
Therefore, Brentwoods development will SEVERELY INCREASE ADVERSE effect on ALL BASILDON RESIDENTS.
As for infrastucture I spoke to Brentwood Planning in 2017 and they advised unlikely any New Schools until sometime after 2030 & NHS responsible for Health Services which will not, if ever, be built or totally insufficient, AT DUNTON HILLS GARDEN VILLAGE (NEW TOWN).

PLANNING advised that that it takes 15 years for a development to pay for itself but in this case Brentwood get all the income, infrastructure costs falling on basildon Councils, so Basildon Residents will be funding their development/residents permanently.

ALL financial benefits go to Brentwood Council

Most costs FOR DEVELOPMENT INFRASTRUCTURE FALL ON BASILDON COUNCIL to the detriment of its residents, taxes and services.
(Informed they will have to INCREASE BASILDON COUNCIL TAXES TO PROVIDE SERVICES FOR THEIR RESIDENTS/DEVELOPMENT &/or KNOWINGLY WILL
REDUCE QUALITY OF SERVICE(s) FOR ALL BASILDON RESIDENTS)!

Brentwood Council expect (Knowing will cause Basildon Residents severe problems):
Knowing likely lead to significant negative effects in terms of air quality (on the basis that car dependency would remain entrenched), and also performs poorly in terms of
objectives relating to climate change mitigation, economy, employment and housing.

They state Residents on their development to be vehicle orientated.

Schools:                          All places to be provided in Basildon District causing major problems. Means either new Schools will be needed and places for existing schools
difficult to select.
Health Services:       Again All places to be provided in Basildon District causing major problems.  Laindon Health Centre is already at capacity so increase will only
exacerbate problem, stops taking on patients.  Also increases demands on Basildon Hospital.
Roads:                          Not their problem, they are aware of significant problems on A127 already e.g. Congestion/pollution and proposal may well cause roads to be
gridlocked, including local roads e.g. Dunton flyover and A127. Causing problems for all those from Southend to London and vice versa.
Trains:                         To rely on Laindon and West Horndon Stations– C2C now has standing room only/no extra capacity, so again cause major problems this time for commuters. When coming home from London  to travel as far as Southend standing room only if able to get on a train!

Indicated in reports likely flooding, soil & water CONTAMINATION  which may well adversely affect Basildon Residents?
Brentwood refer to Dunton as Fenland so understand why reports state providing water features!
Basildon state Dunton is ‘A critical Drainage Area’.

HOW CAN ANYONE GIVE COMMENTs ON PROPOSALS that do not have full details/content and VITAL INFORMATION MISSING?

ALL BRENTWOOD HAVE DONE IS MAKE A POLITICAL DECISION TO BUILD over 60%  of NEW HOMES AT DUNTON which they CONSIDER OUT OF
(Brentwood Districts) AREA.

BEST AREAS in BRENTWOOD are: Pilgrims Hatch; Shenfield, North Brentwood and Greenfield sites North of A12 AS PROVED when using accurate details .
THAT IS AMENDING INACCURATE 2015 REPORT INFORMATION.
