Note: DUNTON GARDEN SUBURB – ended 2014/5: Joint proposal ended as Brentwood Borough Council had not carried out comparable studies to Basildon Borough Council to determine it was a suitable location for development.
Informed government instructed councils to work together but in this case Brentwood continues to act unethically, trying to be Masters with Basildon (and other Councils) as its slave(s).
ALSO NOTE: Re WEST HORNDON/DUNTON
Understand they were originally considering building 4,500 New Homes but reduced this to 1,500 on deciding to build 3,500 New Homes at DUNTON. Saying only intended 2,500 at DUNTON then adding a further 1,000 but now 4,ooo in Local Plan 2018 but since then have quoted 5,000.
Reason for considering West Horndon same as Dunton but everything changed on losing a councillor.
However, due to the loss of councillor the then leader of the council and others decided to reduce this figure by around half.
Scared West Horndon and their Parish Council to accept without much/any protest.
In 2015 at a meeting one of the three main protagonists used scaremongering tactics, informing everyone even if you object to the Dunton Hills Garden Village development the government will step in and push it through.
