The Echo reports:
JUBILANT campaigners have spoken of their relief after a High Court Judge rejected a developerís plea to build on green belt.
Cogent Land LLP wanted to build 251 homes on Coombes Farm, Rochford, and took Rochford District Council to court.
It argued the councilís plans, which set out where 1,785 houses will be built over the next 15 years, had denied them ďnatural justiceĒ and attempted to have it overturned.
The councilís blueprint did not include Coombes Farm.
Mr Justice Singh, sitting at the High Court, rejected the developerís claims…..

It seems a long time ago that residents and neighbours turned out in force to support the campaign to stop Coombes Farm being concreted over but a High Court ruling today could finally mean the successful end to a long battle.
