LRA has sent twelve representations to the District Council, setting out what it sees as the serious mistakes in the Local Plan, including calling for Jessel Green to be dropped from the development list. Loughton Town Council have also sent in representations.

At the meeting, District Cllrs reluctantly approved a proposal for flats at 2 Connaught Avenue, but added extra conditions to protect neighbour amenity and the character of the building (had they turned it down, it would have inevitably been approved on appeal).
