New date for ‘New Town’ consultation event

Following on from our earlier news item regarding the Local Plan presentation events, specifically concerning the ‘West of Braintree’ New Town,  the event scheduled for Rayne was cancelled due to poor weather.

A new date has now been announced.

Rayne Scout HQ, Station Road, Rayne, CM77 6RX, 10th January 4pm–8pm

This is your last chance to learn more about the plans for the new town, of up to 13,000 houses, and to respond to the consultation. There are forms at the events, or you can submit comments online here. The consultation closes on 22nd January.

We, as the Parish Council, shall continue to object to the proposals for the West of Braintree New Town based on the impact it will have on the Parish from traffic and draw on resources. We have also asked to speak at the Inspector review of the overall plan. It does however remain important for residents to also make their views known.
