Burnham: Developer's interest in villages sparks fear
Outraged residents are fearing for the future of their villages after developers expressed an interest in building houses and leisure facilities.
Mayland Parish Council received more than 200 phone calls from worried villagers after a survey gauging ideas about the future of Mayland and Maylandsea was hand-delivered to residents last week.
Hedgehog Development, based in Southend-on-Sea, asked residents whether they would prefer retirement homes, affordable homes, social housing or apartments to be brought to the area.
They also offered leisure facility options, including a public park, tea rooms, an eco-centre to study nature and a dog exercise area.
