Questioning the Housing Minister about Dunton Garden Village plans
As the plans currently stand, the development would be built right next to Basildon and West Horndon. Many local residents are rightly concerned about new developments on green belt land and their voices should be heard in the ongoing process.
Through my Parliamentary question I suggested the Minister contact Basildon and Thurrock councils as a matter of urgency to gain their views on the new garden village.
I was pleased that he said he would make more information available and he confirmed that the plans have not yet been finalised.
