South East Essex Action Group Alliance
In towns and villages across the country residents are fighting to prevent unjustified housing developments, particularly those where Green Belt land will be lost for ever. Councils are wilfully ignoring local concerns in spite of the Prime Minister’s drive for Localism.
In the South East of Essex the situation is exacerbated by the limited supply of land suitable for development, the already-overstretched infrastructure and the existing high population density. A number of independent Action Groups have already been set up by concerned residents. Now these groups are collaborating, sharing information and experiences and preparing to fight together on their shared concerns.
The South East Essex Action Group Alliance, (SEEAGA), has been initiated by action groups from Wickford, Billericay, Rayleigh, Hullbridge, Daws Heath and Jotmans Farm (these fall within the Basildon, Rochford and Castle Point Local Authority areas). SEEAGA campaigns on four key target issues:-
- Unnecessarily high housing targets;
- failure to implement Localism;
- impact on the Green Belt
