A BLUEPRINT has emerged for 7,200 homes on “green lung” land buffering Southend and Rochford.
It mentions another idea of SBC for more flats, the interesting line says : The proposals for 1,461 new homes at Fossetts Farm, which would go alongside a new Southend United football stadium, would be included in this plan.
The plot thickens ..... problem is this looks set to have a another load of hastle with the planning dept.
Now i could be wrong here but i thought the Fossetts development was a totally seperate plan, now the way this reads is that it has been joined to this additional flat building work between Sutton road and Star lane.
If this is the case, is this the reason for a delay in the plans going thru in addition to the elections? Seems strange to me that this has come out of the woodwork after we have been relegated and not before.
Sounds like we could be waiting a damn sight longer than what we have already for this pipedream to come to fruition, which dosent bear thinkin about with the state the club is in at the moment. Especially if both Rochford and SBC now have to look into this additional extra planning development before any decison is made.
