Tonight’s meeting in St Nicholas Church was quite interesting .
There were over 30 people there – 4 from the developers side, 2 District Councillors, 2 Rawreth Parish Councillors, 2 Rayleigh Town Councillors, Rev Paul Trathen chairing the meeting, OnlineFocus regular Canterbury Close Resident taking the minutes, Echo journalist John Georghan and most importantly, more than 20 residents. Everybody had a chance to have their say.
We’ll be publishing Canterbury Close Residents’ minutes later on. The main news from tonight was that the developers are amending their scheme to try to overcome the District Council officers concerns and might even withdraw their application from next weeks meeting.
It was also clear that the applicants read Onlinefocus to see what people are saying!
