The LDP sets out locations for new homes

First published in News

Residents will get another chance to comment on plans for 4,410 homes in the Maldon district.

The Local Development Plan sets out locations for new homes including North Heybridge, South Maldon, Burnham and villages.

Comments will be collected from tomorrow until March 7, then the final version of the LDP will be submitted to the Secretary of State for an examination in public.

Maldon District Council leader Bob Boyce said: “Change isn’t always easy to accept, but in this district there is real pressure for new homes and an up to date plan to guide future development.

"The LDP will set out the planning strategy for future growth by delivering sustainable development across the Maldon district over the next 15 years.”

Watch the NIMBYs complain - and we have a massive house shortage in the South East.

Maldon is in dire need of social housing and wherever they build them is alright with me as long as they are built aesthetically pleasing to the eye and if they are allocated to hard working people who currently have to pay massive rents to private landlords. What I will object to is new dwellings going to immigrants from eastern Europe who have arrived in the UK to milk our welfare system and take advantage of our NHS and education system or scroungers already here that commit the same abuse.

Ugly little housing estates nobody wants or NEEDS, built on completely unsuitable land next to gridlocked roads in a district with not enough resources.

Another monument to Government corruption and the lack of consideration to the countryside.

Yes, we need more housing in Maldon that is clear, but why compound the mistakes of the past over again. Have our councillors not seen the flooding that occurs around Holloway Rd time and time again. The proposals for Heybridge will just make a bad situation even worse. Come on Heybridge councillors do what you were elected to do and support the residents opposing hundreds of new houses on land that is plainly not suitable. Oh yes and see you in the gridlock hell that Heybridge will become if this proposal doesn't get the boot.
