    It means the application to Rochford has a target decision date of 26th September. It also means Rochford's planning portal is more helpful than Southend's as I'm not sure we're clear about the specific dates on the Southend application. However, there's a good chance that both applications were submitted relatively close together and timings could be statutory - in which case, a decision from Southend Council may follow not long after Rochford's.

    They must be the most misguided people in the world if they think that. The town has never cared much about its football club sadly, the local councillors are all happy to declare their allegiances to the big London club as are most of the residents. It's about time the town gave Southend United a break.

    The original plans for the training complex were passed by Rochford County Council.

    These have now been modified to remove the floodlit pitch at the far end (there were objections to this in the original plans) and they have added a training complex block which now includes changing/locker rooms, showers, offices etc, plus layout changes to the car parking areas.

    So I believe modified plans need to be approved.

    Yet more NIMBY objections received today. Doesn't anyone on here live in Rochford, who could write in to support the plans? I can write in but as I currently live outside the borough (returning in a few years) my views are pretty much disregarded.

    To be fair they were fully behind the first plans we put forward, and even agreed revised plans when we couldn't afford to pay for it.

    The Council were very supportive a decade ago, we shall see how much so this time with Seaway in competition.

    Reading the NIMBY letters and one says there are deer over there? That's not true surely?

    Could a link to the council site not be added to the main forum allowing everyone easy access to comment/show support.

    Some of the letters submitted are quite ott in content, you'd think the entire area was a thriving nature reserve. I wonder if they made similar negative comments when the Waitrose and B+Q stores were proposed?

    Love this part of one of the 2 letters from the same address that starts "I object to my name & address being published for everyone to see & feel that this is in breach of The Data Protection Act".

    Only to see that they have blanked out some of the info but have left his name and address at the top of both the letters in full few.
