RESIDENTS have organised a meeting to inform the public about Basildon Council’s plans to allow housing developments in the green belt.

Basildon Council’s draft local plan sets planning precedent until 2031 and is out to consultation until March 18.

But some residents feel they are not informed enough and want to discuss the proposals for 2,300 homes on Billericay green belt on Sunday, March 2, at The Rising Sun pub in Sun Street, Billericay, at 1pm.
