Neither Basildon nor Brentwood Borough Councils have prepared a coherent reports worth considering at the present time, there are so many flaws it takes ones breath away, GASP!
Yet both councils seem to be wishing to proceed to finalising site proposals, ignoring objections; major problems and putting forward a concrete adequate proposal that would stand up to scrutiny.
Perhaps it is because they are aware the proposals would not stand up to proper scrutiny and perhaps only wish to ensure revenue around £1.5 million pounds for every 1,000 NEW HOMES for 6 years!
How can both council’s issue such poor quality reports without full disclosure of actual factual information and
infrastructure to justify their proposals. Joe Bloggs could have saved the Councils wasting time by making reports with a severe lack of information.
Compare BRENTWOOD & BASILDON BOROUGH COUNCILS infrastructure proposals (which do not stand up to scrutiny and may never be provided!) to NEW COUNTRY TOWN proposed to Thurrock Council over 30 years ago, which was refused and appeals dismissed, along the A128 and Bulphan etc.
Make no mistake BRENTWOOD BOROUGH COUNCILS reports contain inaccurate information, misleading comments and missing vital facts (which councillors acknowledge) but then they appear to have an ulterior motive to promote the indefensible!
BRENTWOODS PROPOSED DEVELOPMENT, Dunton Hills Garden Village, can be seen as just politically motivated.
They consider South of A127 OUT OF (Brentwood Districts) Area.
Please read details under heading INFRASTRUCTURE and you will note that little if anything will be provided.
