Donations sought to fight 1600 unit Brook Green development either side of Flitch Way between Rayne and Braintree. The developer is now appealing against the council’s refusal to grant him planning permission. This appeal will be 12 days in length in the form of a public enquiry with an inspector and then referred to the Secretary of State to determine. The housing policies of the government mean that they want to build where feasible. This is not feasible. We have fought and fought against it with the backing of you the community. We have won so far. No Brook Green Action Group have been granted permission to be a main party at the inquiry so we have the right to call evidence and question and challenge things said by the developer. Parties will be represented ideally by counsel. This comes at a cost. We’ve already spent some funds on professional advice but need more to fund a 12 day inquiry. We are asking each household in Rayne, Braintree, Notley or wherever to consider donating just £5 to help preserve the Flitch Way and to prevent further traffic chaos by resisting this appeal effectively. Can you help?

If some of the money isn’t spent, what will happen to it?
The action group have decided that the best use for any money left over would be to donate it to local good causes. They will be able to use if to the benefit of all. However, we are always open to suggestions so please get in contact if you have any alternative ideas.
