Earlier this month Billericay Action Group, Billericay District Residents Association and the Billericay Society wrote this joint letter to John Baron MP.
We pointed out that, despite his reticence, other MPs are taking an active role in the Local Plan Process in areas that they represent.
He has stated in the past that it is up to Local People to decide whether they consent to development on Green Belt land and that properly funded infrastructure improvements need to be in place before development begins.
On this basis we have asked to present our findings in relation to the Draft Local Plan and discuss areas where we might work together to protect our town.
We await Mr Baron’s response and will publish it once it is received.
