NEWS: SEEAGA is running a campaign with the slogan "Say No Over-development" to fight against the unsustainable levels of housing proposed in the Thames Gateway Strategic Housing Market Assesment which covers Basildon, Thurrock, Castle Point, Rochford and Southend (It is also of interest to neighbouring Local Authorities including Brentwood and Chelmsford) This could mean up to 86,000 homes being built by these councils. If you wish to be updated on progress send us an e-mail at sayno@seeaga.uk The campaign has been featured in the Yellow Advertiser.

In towns and villages across the country residents are fighting to prevent unjustified housing developments, particularly those where Green Belt land will be lost for ever. Councils are willfully ignoring local concerns in spite of the Prime Ministerís drive for Localism.

In the South East of Essex the situation is exacerbated by the limited supply of land suitable for development, the already-overstretched infrastructure and the existing high population density. A number of independent Action Groups have already been set up by concerned residents. Now these groups are collaborating, sharing information and experiences and preparing to fight together on their shared concerns.

The SE Essex Action Group Alliance, (AGA), has been initiated by action groups from Billericay, Rayleigh, Hullbridge, Daws Heath and Jotmans Farm (these fall within the Basildon, Rochford and Castle Point Local Authority areas). AGA will campaign on four main issues:-

OUR CONCLUSION

Untold and irreversible damage will be done to the towns and villages in Essex if National and Local Government continue to disregard the views of residents (the electors), by allowing unjustified building and the destruction of the Green Belt. To stop this happening it is essential that local people make their views known through their local Action Groups who are working together to present a strong and united case to the decision makers.

The SE Essex Action Group Alliance invites other groups in the SE of Essex to unite with us to ensure the views of existing residents are no longer ignored by those who purport to represent them.
