Large Housing Development Application received for Canvey’s Dutch Village

Commuters, as far as The Point end of Canvey, will be affected if Persimmon’s plans to develop a 275 dwelling, retail and community facilities site at the Dutch Village part of the Island. There will be a loss of Green Belt serving the Cornelius Vermuyden and Northwick Park schools, the Saints estate, the Dutch Village estate and Church Parade in the Winter Gardens area.

The registering of this proposal would be judged timely by Persimmons. Many residents will be on holiday during the public consultation period and Castle Point Council will be once again, as in the case of the Core Strategy, be able to promote a large Green Belt development for Canvey Island within the emerging Local Plan.

We would hope that those photographed below will be organising and encouraging a response against this proposal.


Plans and documents for the site proposal can be viewed on line by clicking on this LINK.

The Application is currently out for consultation, and the closing date for responses from residents is the 20th August.

Should you wish to object our local authority will only take into account material planning reasons, such as;

Loss of residential amenity, privacy, overlooking and dominance.

The character of the area and streetscene

Increase in traffic and / or highway safety

Lack of on-site car parking and increase in on-street car parking

Noise and disturbance to adjoining properties

Effect on wildlife, their habitats and other natural amenities and resources

AND MOST APPROPRIATELY WHERE CANVEY IS CONCERNED: National and local planning policies and land use issues. Such as loss of Green Belt and Flooding issues.

The planning authority will ignore observations on:

Loss of value to your property

Loss of view from your property

Financial benefits of the proposal to the applicant

Neighbour disputes

  1. Do you think all these applications going in now have something to do with the current delay/absense of the publication of the flood committee findings? Coincidence or deliberate you decide.

  2. Cllr. Charles Mumford

    Very informative as usual. Many thanks for this valuable work.

  3. There will be too much traffic at rush hour and weekends and not enough access roads on and off the Island. What about the flood and sewage issues? One school has already been taken away so there won’t be enough places for new families. Isn’t the Island crowded enough?
