If you’ve been following the ‘chat’ on social media about this consultation, you’ll have noticed that there doesn’t appear to have been many ‘come on let’s build more houses’. From what we’ve read here at onlineFOCUS this is driven by the fact that there appears to be a dramatic underfunding in infrastructure by Essex County Council and those houses that have been built have not come with any notable infrastructure improvement.
We await the closure of the consultation with baited breath to see just how many residents have taken part, as these consultations are notorious for returning low numbers of participants.
