Housing for Lubbards Farm?

Some residents may have seen this ‘brochure’ (http://bit.ly/2Z0iJOF) which at this stage is purely speculative. The land has not been released from the greenbelt for building housing and is not in the new local plan as yet (it’s closely guarded). We will be looking at this further in due course.

  • It seems to be the new trend from potential Developers , a sort of ‘mind grooming” to
    imbed the concept; and (perhaps) influence
    the ‘preferred options’ chosen by RDC from
    the Call for Sites procedure. This is the second
    I know of in Rayleigh ( a Great Wheatley site is
    the other ), others are emerging elsewhere too.

    The presentation is deliberately designed to
    create the impression that the development
    is fact ( but actually the fake news concept ).

    Needs to be exposed and it will be interesting
    if they are now actually chosen by RDC at the
    next phase of the ‘New’ Local Plan ?

    • A Developers sign is now in place on the ’roundabout’
      corner area……all part of
      getting people used to the idea
      is it ?- or jumping the gun!!!!

        • Yes it does ( Barrett-David Wilson ) but Lubbards was submitted to the ‘ Call for Sites’ process and is actively being
          promoted (as per the lead to this topic). And that land on the corner was
          released by Lubbards Farm to facilitate
          the Roundabout – not too difficult to work out why I would suggest.
