The planning meeting which had been announced at late notice to include the Tesco Warley Hill development has been postponed.
Which is a relief, as some of us are half way around the world, but will be back for the next date which is in early July.
So, whilst others make plans for further over-development and damage to Brentwood’s community of local shops and local pubs, we’ll be planning our response and comment for the planning meeting.
It’s not much of a reprieve, but it does at least allow the issue to be fairly discussed, and will hopefully mean that any decision can be taken after councillors have taken careful and considered advice.
Interestingly, looking at the Essex County Council planning guide, the National Planning Policy Framework, and Resolution 42/187 of the United Nations, the development on Warley Hill would logically contravene them all. A point we hope out planning committee will bear in mind.
Watch this space!
