LRA attacks Local Plan

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.

The next stage will be a hearing in front of a Government Inspector, probably in Autumn 2018. 

Please help by signing SaveJesselGreen’s petition now.

Parking schemes

The Broadway area
LRA is pressing for Phase 2 of the parking scheme to go ahead asap, looking at the parking in roads within about 15 minutes’ walk of Debden station, and for action by the District Council to free up parking for Broadway shoppers, currently clogged up by commutersMore

Forest Road/ Smarts Lane area
Residents’ parking is now in operation. Without warning, NEPP has launched a 6-month temporary parking waiver (at 245) for businesses – We are watching whether the temporary parking waivers for businesses affects parking for residents. More

Langston Road Retail Park
The Conservative-led District Council has failed on its promises to attract predominantly fashion-led shops to the retail park, and has still not managed to fill all the units. While many residents welcome the wide range of outlets, there are signs that trade on The Broadway (where the shops are also owned by the Council) is being adversely affected. More

Planning cases

The proposals for a large retirement complex at 13-15A Alderton Hill was withdrawn from January’s District Council planning meeting, and we await further details. 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).
