Billericay set to be spared West extension

Southend Standard: Billericay West councillor Tony Hedley at Outwood Common Road Billericay West councillor Tony Hedley at Outwood Common Road

Plans to build 1,400 of homes to the west of Billericay, which sparked outrage in the town, are to be shelved.

Basildon Council had earmarked the western side of the town for the homes as part of its local plan – fuelling fears the area would not be able to cope.

However, senior Tories have admitted the influx of homes would lead to “slaughter on the roads”, with Billericay already at bursting point.

Earlier this month, the Echo revealed County Hall’s transport bosses had vetoed the idea, and now Basildon’s Tory administration will say the western side of the town cannot handle the housing when submitting its local plan to the Government for final approval.

Phil Turner, deputy leader of the council, said: “For the west, it is ‘no’ to any future development and ‘no’ to any other considerations, unless we get assurances over infrastructure.

“This is me lying in front of the bulldozers. We can’t get any more homes in western Billericay.

“We have had the evidence now and 1,200 homes would be slaughter and carnage on the roads.”

A lack of money to create the road improvements has put paid to the plans, with the extent of money needed to bring Billericay’s roads up to scratch, and even build a by-pass, unlikely to be available.

The policy change also casts doubt over the viability of sites in the south east of Billericay for 180 houses, and the east for 430 homes off Outwood Farm Road.

Mr Turner admitted his authority was working with County Hall to look at evidence for the eastern side of the town, too.

The Tory administration deliberately left no specific site allocated for west Billericay as more research was needed when the draft version of the local plan was revealed in December.

Overall, the plan set out sites in the borough that could have delivered 12,500 homes by 2031.

However, the authority is unlikely to find space elsewhere in the borough for the Billericay homes and will submit a revised amount to the Government, which needs to approve the local plan.

Tony Hedley, Tory councillor for Billericay West, said: “Now we can say ‘I don’t think we can do anything in West Billericay’.

“Before that, the planning inspector would have said ‘well, where is your evidence?’ “We’ve found out from the evidence we have gathered that Billericay can’t even take what were modest numbers compared to the borough as a whole.

“We wanted to spread the pain out across the borough as we felt that was reasonable.”

Before the local plan is adopted in 2015, the evidence the council has got, could be used to protect the areas around Billericay from development in the meantime, too.

A submission to the Planning Inspector will take place in autumn for final approval.

Southend Standard:

Campaigners' jubiliation at plans

Campaigners are “ecstatic” that west Billericay is likely to be dropped from the Local Plan – and the east of the town could follow.

The three sites in Billericay put forward in Basildon Council’s Local Plan, consisting of 2,010 homes, sparked arguably the biggest response from people from all of the towns in the borough.

Hundreds of militant residents stormed local council meetings, set up a campaign group, and even called for a referendum on the plans.

Mike Andrews, who is behind the Billericay Action Group, which was set up in response to the Local Plan, said it was incredibly encouraging.

He said: “If this is the case then we’d be ecstatic.

“They were planning on building on areas that are populated with country lanes, that would need considerable enhancement.

“The council has gone for a policy of proportionate distribution, but that totally ignores the character of Billericay and that many of the roads are already at capacity.”

Another campaigner, Clive Aldous, of Outwood Farm Road, said: “The council can say what it wants. We are opposed to everything on the green belt in Billericay.”

 

Modest eastern improvements suggested

Despite County Hall and residents’ fears that roads to the east of Billericay will need to be updated, Basildon Council has proposed only modest improvements.

The council is working with Essex County Council to gather information on whether the east side of the town can cope with the influx, with a view to taking the two sites off the local plan.

The two sites are earmarked to deliver a total of 610 homes.

The draft local plan points out the need for “new or improved pedestrian and cycle links” to Billericay town centre, the train station and the A127 for both sites.

However, no major new roads were mooted.

The site could be pulled off the plan when the Tory administration submits it to the planning inspector if County Hall raises concerns about the highways network, at the west of the town, as it has done at the east.

The council will put together its finalised local plan in the summer ahead of an autumn submission to the Planning Inspectorate.

If it is rubber-stamped, then the local plan could be adopted in 2015.

And we can trust Labour can we? Your lot are any better are they?

Your lot racked up a huge debt last time they were in office and I didn't see them building any council houses for the "working classes" in Basildon back then either..

Right now, your lot are strutting around as if they are going to re-take the council. It's not happening. A lot of YOUR voters are voting UKIP because after the disastrous 13 years of administration with Clegg and Brown in charge, you screwed this country up so bad it will take decades to recover if ever. So far Cameron has done nothing to repair the damage either.

Whatever you may think of the Tories, magnify it several times and you've got Labour. By far the biggest enemies of this country since Hitler.

And look what happened to him in the end.

Put you lot in charge and you'll shut the theatre and other community buildings and start up a lot of daft minority schemes that only benefit the misfits who vote for you. And as for you criticising the Tories over consultants, let me ram the figures down your throat again. ONE POINT EIGHT BILLION pounds was spent of our money last time you were in office.

Labour is going down the toilet and you've truly hit the bottom of the pan with your candidates jumping on everybody else's bandwagons - and some bullying voters on their doorsteps so I hear. As for your current leaflets. Full of lies and deliberately misleading information. Never read such utter garbage in my life. You are going to oppose traveller sites? Pull the other one. You've spent the best part of the last decade bending over backwards to address their "human rights" whilst ignoring the rest of us. Don't make me laugh. And you only leaflet at election times unlike UKIP who do it all year round. You are so complacent and smug. Never good to be like that.

Oh dear I made the mistake of reading the entire posting. Silly me.

Gandy you have it wrong again. Where in my post did I criticise the Tories and their consultants? Closing the theatre? (you cannot 'shut' a building. Another basic mistake made by the self proclaimed Queen of the written word) where on earth did that come from?

And it wasnt Clegg and Brown in charge. It IS Cameron and Clegg you stupid woman.

Miss Gandy if you insist on making these totally unfounded accusations about me then I shall ask that you be prevented from posting on this site again. You are rude, obnoxious and a bigot. Hardly surprising that the good folk of Billericay voted you out of the council.
Put you lot in charge and you'll shut the theatre and other community buildings and start up a lot of daft minority schemes that only benefit the misfits who vote for you. And as for you criticising the Tories over consultants, let me ram the figures down your throat again. ONE POINT EIGHT BILLION pounds was spent of our money last time you were in office. Oh dear I made the mistake of reading the entire posting. Silly me. Gandy you have it wrong again. Where in my post did I criticise the Tories and their consultants? Closing the theatre? (you cannot 'shut' a building. Another basic mistake made by the self proclaimed Queen of the written word) where on earth did that come from? And it wasnt Clegg and Brown in charge. It IS Cameron and Clegg you stupid woman. Miss Gandy if you insist on making these totally unfounded accusations about me then I shall ask that you be prevented from posting on this site again.

It's a FACT that the council has withdrawn it from the plan.

Abington86 I couldn't give a monkey's what you think and as for your assertion that I am making false claims about you - you haven't the guts even to undersign your comments with your REAL NAME so that doesn't stand up.

I know you are one of the Labour yobs and you are chewing on a sour grape after that meeting the other night that ended disastrously for your ludicrous Fairness Commission quango proposal.

Prepare to be chewing more sour grapes after 22nd May.

I have not read your comment but hear from a friend it's the usual bullying,hectoring Labour tone.

I was never voted off Billericay Town Council and if you can prove this put the evidence up here and sign it with your REAL NAME.

I left BTC when I moved from Crays Hill after my home was disastrously devalued by Dale Farm.

So get your facts right before posting your malicious rubbish.

If anybody is obnoxious it is you Cllr Cockroach.

Now get back to chewing your sour grapes, which you will be doing for pretty much most of this year and certainly next... I suspect you will be deselected by then.

Gandy and her BS again...Dale farm was there long before you were there..so you must of bought the house knowing the site was there...probably at a price much cheaper than you sold it...

You imply you sold your house (did you own a house?) when it was worth the least...just doesn't ring true does it Gandy?

Is it not the case you were a non-political councillor?

Like to tell the readers what that is?

Ms Gandy - as ever you have it wrong. I am not a Labour party supporter. I have told you this on more than one occasion. I did not attend the meeting that you refer to - I could get very silly and ask where is your EVIDENCE for this -but then I would come down to your level wouldn't I. And we dont want another one like you on here do we.

Love your words' I have not read your comment but a friend tells me' Hysterical.

Whats my real name? - the clue dear Ms Gandy is in my poster name. Its certainly not 86 so if you are able to you may just be able to work it out. Go away and have a think about it.

How much more ridiculous can you make yourself look.
