Oppose Brook Green Development (version 2!) proposal between Braintree and Rayne, Essex

This petition had 1,046 supporters

The developer has had their application for 1600 on this site declined by Braintree District Council but had now appealed this decision. While this appeal process is progressing they have submitted a new small hybrid planning application (18/01065/OUT) of up to 120 dwellings on land to the north of the Flitch way.

We will do all we can to strenuously protect the areas of natural beauty that locals enjoy along the Flitch Way and to prevent Braintree merging into Rayne and to preserve locals quality of life and valuable community resources.

This seems to be part of a piecemeal approach by the developer where they snip away at the countryside little by little arguing that one development makes further new ones acceptable until it’s all gone. It is Brook Green by stealth. The developer is obsessed by getting his way by whatever means he can. We do not intend to let him.

We support the democratic local plan process where locals get to decide how their surroundings are developed and this site has already been rejected for development in that process for very good reason
