SOUTH ESSEX GOLF CLUB – PLANNING APPLICATION FOR 30 HOMES
NOTIFICATION OF PLANNING APPLICATION
I have received the following response to my request that the deadline for comments be extended for all to the 2nd October to allow for full public consultation:
Dear Ms Robinson

I have consulted with the case officer and can confirm that the overall consultation period will be extended to allow the Parish Council to conduct their meeting.

This application will be going before the planning committee and any comments received from neighbours, after the consultation period has elapsed will be reported to the committee, however it may not be possible to include them within the officer’s report as this has to be complied before the committee meets.

UPDATE- There has been an appeal against the refusal of the first planning application. There will be a public inquiry, but as yet no date for this has been given.
golf course appeal
The Parish Council have voted to object to the appeal. A copy of the letter sent to the Planning Inspectorate is attached.

ALL SAINTS CHURCH

All Saints Church of East Horndon is the red brick church standing proud up on the hill above the Halfway House at the junction of the A127 and the A128.  Whilst it has been redundant since the 1970’s it is still used for special occasions throughout the year and now desperately needs your help!  The grounds around the church contain many historical graves but unfortunately brambles and weeds have consumed much of what was once a well-tended sacred area.  To this end the ‘Friends of All Saints Church’ are trying to find local people to offer a few weekends throughout the year to help keep the grounds under control.  All you would need to bring is a pair of secateurs and gardening gloves as drinks and cakes would be provided!  The first day of action is hopefully going to be in the coming weeks so to chat more about offering some help please call Ian Peters on 01277 812973.  To find out more about the church please log on to all-saints-east-horndon.co.uk/
