Local issues: North Essex Garden Communities: Councils becoming property companies with cheaper govt loans. Accountability and oversight concerns.
I am writing to you to highlight the local concerns not only about the scale of housing and impact that it will have on the existing over stretched infrastructure with regards to local councils proposals for numerous new Garden towns along the A120 and A12 which represents the urbanisation of North Essex.
Letter to Braintree & Witham Times in response to an article. From Sue Baugh
Dear Sir, I have never ever written to a newspaper before but, although the headline of your article “Support to stop garden communities is overwhelming” was an absolute representation of what is happening right now, the fact that Councillor Butland felt that he could throw out a “silent majority” comment because he and BDC can see that Braintree District residents are finally starting to stand up for themselves, is unacceptable. I realise that BDC have to have a right to reply but please don’t take us for fools.
