The above welcome message greeted visitors to an exhibition and consultation staged by Tendring District Council's Town Planning Department in St Osyth Village Hall on Wednesday 15th April 2009.
Officers from the Department were on hand to explain the options being presented at this time for residents of all areas in Tendring to give a view, which would be taken into account when the final plan was prepared.
Government plans indicate that Tendring must provide another 6,500 properties in the district by the year 2026 and this visit to St Osyth was to ask us for our views as a Parish.
The notice below explains that there are four options being presented that day, which will be shown by the Department to Parishes and Towns around Tendring and visitors are invited to discuss the proposals with staff, come to their own view and notify the Department of their own wishes, so that a consensus view around the District can be collated and considered by the plan makers.






Here we see John White and wife Sue pointing out to the officer their concerns
over some aspect of the plan and no doubt offering their own solution.
In the background Parish Councillor Jean Smith (in pink) is explaining the finer
details to her granddaughter!



Sonia Grantham our Chairman, asks the
awkward questions - as usual, such as
"Are there current plans for St Osyth
and Point Clear?"



The displays were excellently laid out with plans and instructions at eye height. An entrance table had documentation for visitors to take for further study.


Pictures 1 and 4 supplied by Tricia Martin, TDC.


The officers from Tendring who attended, Tricia Martin, Richard Matthams and Peter Hill could not be faulted for their patience with visitors, who for the four hour period from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. were asking the same questions, with the officers giving much the same answers. We were well served that day and I use this page to thank them.

Some questions were mixed in with concerns of a parochial nature with visitors remembering the third party application for the last local plan process in December 2004, when John White who was Parish Council Chairman at that time called a mass meeting in the Village Hall to discuss the possibility of 956 new houses in the village and their effect on our small Parish community (Click here to view that meeting)

The pictures of the four option copied below are a poor imitation of the original boards, but I hope they will give a flavour of the display in the hall and perhaps even lead you to come to a personal conclusion
.

During the course of the four hour exhibition around 60 residents attended to see for themselves and to ask their own questions. A number of people most of who were at work during the period 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. have subsequently asked their Parish Councillors what went on and what was displayed. I hope this page will go some way towards answering those questions!
I have spoken to John White, who as District Councillor was our planning 'expert' for eight years and asked what he thought of the options. He agreed with me that a glaring error was not to include an option 5 which would allow the creation of a new settlement in the centre of Tendring. If the majority of the 6,500 houses were built there, the infrastructure requirements could be provided at the same time. Consideration would be given to schools, doctor’s surgery, transport links, community facilities, playgrounds etc being provided hand in hand with the residential and industrial development. This will be two responses to the consultation!
If the Parish Council come to a view, this will also be reported here.
