Planning Application Refused in Rectory Road

February 26, 2007 by  


Demolish Existing Dwellings and Construct Two Storey Building to Provide 4 No. Two Bedroomed and 4 No. One Bedroomed Flats With Access and Parking Area.
66-68 Rectory Road Hawkwell

At a Meeting of the Planning Committee of Hawkwell Parish Council, I was pointedly asked, in front of members of the public, by Parish Councillor, Alan James (who represents the Hawkwell Residents’ Association), how I was going to vote on this planning application if it came before the Development Committee of Rochford District Council.

There was a clear inference by reference to a very controversial series of planning applications on one site in Hockley that I would not be supporting residents.  

I said that I was quite clear on the views of the public who had come to the Parish Council Meeting.

As many will know, as does Parish Councillor James, that a District Councillor has to respect planning law by not revealing the way he intends to vote.

I wish to put on record that on 22 February 2007, I formally seconded a motion for refusal and helped lead the debate.  At the Vote, I voted for refusal, which was passed almost unanimously.
