Whilst it is appreciated that areas need to be developed to provide housing and amenities for projected population and economic growth in the South Essex Area, the needs and requirements of existing residents and businesses who are already in situ should always take precedence over speculative projections which ultimately may not in fact be borne out. This should be a long term strategy to meet the needs of primarily the existing and potential future South Essex community not simply an exercise to tick boxes and meet hypothetical targets set but some Government Department think tank.

Housing is the most important humanistic planning issue and has been for 50 years. Yet, thousands of local, and national politicians have ducked the responsibility of it over the years in order to remain employed, or popular. This was eminently demonstrated by the shenanigans that went on during the middle of this year in Basildon, by shuffling one housing area around for another one that met political, rather than housing purposes. We are not entitled to deny anyone else a safe and weatherproof home in a convenient location. This purpose should be at the heart of all local planning and national planning, and it is being subsumed by less important and some very niche issues that should be subservient to it . Please therefore try to ensure that future infrastructure, communications, transport and energy supply is adequate and appropriate to all reasonably foreseeable eventualities, because, as we have seen over the last few years, even green belt that is not really green belt, is not sacrosanct! If politicians had done their duty over the last 50 years we would have no housing crisis now.

The revised local plan grossly exceeds the OAN for Billericay and the Borough. The plan is reckless and irresponsible in proposing high density housing in a small area, mainly on and adjacent to Tye Common Road. This is not sustainable and will result in as many as 8,000 additional cars creating gridlocks. No new jobs are being generated so people will have to commute and Network Rail Great Eastern have confirmed (Jul 19) that it cannot accommodate any additional services at peak times. Services will be at breaking point with developments in Billericay, Wickford and along the Southend train line.
