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.
