Plans for 87 flats in Wickford rejected by Basildon Council

PLANS for 87 new flats in Wickford have been rejected by Basildon Council.

The committee debated the plans for two hours and decided to reject the application for the development on Golden Jubilee because of highway issues and the lack of parking on the site.

Officers from Bellway Homes, who were present at the meeting, attempted to change the plans at the last minute by suggesting a filter lane for traffic into and out of the development but it was still rejected by the committee on Tuesday night.

For the full report see Thursday's Echo.

Gridlock as a result of yesterday's rain clearly demonstrates that no further homes should be built anywhere in the south east until the infastructure has been improved to a level where it can more than cope.
