SO BERKELEY HOMES CONSIDER THE RESPONSE OF EFFRA AND OTHERS TO THEIR PROPOSALS FOR EFFINGHAM ARE ” NEGATIVE”

 

Our response is A POSITIVE DEFENCE OF A VILLAGE against a predatory developer

The facts are that Effingham Residents Association (EFFRA), with a full mandate from the residents of Effingham, have mounted a robust defence against:

 

A 30% increase in the number of dwellings 

A 90% increase in the Settlement Area

Building on Green Belt land CONTRARY to Government directives, Policy and Legal Advice

Building on green playing field in the Conservation Area of the village

Urban sprawl merging communities

The destruction of Effingham as a semi-rural village

The Berkeley/Howard proposals constitute an unjustified assault on this semi-rural village.  EFFRA, and others’ defence is all based on and in compliance with National Planning Policies, contrary to Berkeley’s proposals to override those policies.
