Priti commends Hatfield Peverel residents

3rd January 2018

Witham MP Priti Patel has commended the residents of Hatfield Peverel and the Parish Council for the robust defence of the village from over-development that they put forward at an ongoing planning inquiry. The planning inquiry was set up after the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government called in planning applications covering two sites that could add up to 260 new dwellings on land outside of the settlement boundary south of Stone Path Drive and east of Gleneagles Way. A hearing took place over two weeks in December when residents gave evidence against the developments and the Planning Inspector conducting the inquiry will undertake site visits and receive closing submissions in January. Priti, who has been supporting the residents since the applications were submitted, said:

“The whole community in Hatfield Peverel has shown great spirit, commitment and determination in campaigning against these developments. The village is already set to accommodate over 200 new dwellings from new developments and the additional strain that the two sites being considered will put on services is unsustainable.”

“Residents have given up so much of their time and fundraised to support their case and they deserve to be praised for the strong evidence they put forward at the inquiry.”
