- They list most/all sites to give impression that these various areas are being considered!
- Obviously if any major problems those sites will not be built on, unless political bias!
- Where to build then becomes subjective:
(one of the definitions is: placing excessive emphasis on one’s own moods, attitudes, opinions, etc.; unduly egocentric).
(a) Some Sites are then immediately discounted but the reasons may not be pertinent/relevant. (NO REASONABLE REASON GIVEN).
(b) Informed Councillors have an input and therefore, those sites discounted.
(c) Even if a site, therefore, is less suitable than many others it may well be included in the Local Development Plan by Basildon and/or Brentwood Borough Councils.
You can then consider the facts and make up your own mind as to the following whether councillors are approving: (i) The best buiding sites
(ii) Protecting their own areas (iii) Making decisions for votes (iv) Making decisions due to pressure etc.
