Build A Better Braintree For All The Community

New Homes, Roads and Schools

Braintree like the rest of the UK is battling a crippling housing crisis. There is a desperate shortage of homes, particularly for first time buyers and growing young families.

National and local government, and the major political parties, all agree the ONLY answer is to build more homes - fast. And to make sure that they are accompanied by vital improvements to infrastructure – especially the road network.

The Brook Green plans lodged with Braintree District Council provide the solution to the town’s urgent needs, guaranteeing:

o  More than 400 new affordable homes

o  A total of 1600 new homes to help ease the housing crisis 1600 new homes including more than 400 much needed affordable homes

o  Private funding for an improved road network benefitting the whole town by speeding up traffic at five locations plus new dedicated slip roads to Freeport from the A120

o  Quicker and better access for traffic to and from the Town centre to help drivers and businesses

o  A new two form entry primary school

o  Environmentally friendly and sustainable development at no cost to the taxpayer

Back the needs of the whole town by supporting Brook Green, Braintree

Braintree District Council’s planning committee will consider the application against the background of the town’s worst post-war housing crisis which, like the UK national housing shortage, is hitting first time buyers and those with growing families especially hard. 

Please show your support and sign this petition urging councillors recognise the benefits to Braintree before the Council makes its decision in December 2017.
