Stoneypath Meadow - Hatfield Peverel

Dear Neighbour,

Thank you for your continued support on defending Stoneypath Meadow. With your help we have made some progress, but unfortunately we are not there yet and the Meadow is still under threat!

As you probably know the idea of designating the whole 26 acres as building land was unanimously rejected by our Parish Council last month. Last week, due to the significant weight of the local residents’ opposition, the District Council deferred the decision on the land for another month, while alternative solutions are considered.

We gained some support; Cllr. O’Reilly-Cicconi said at the meeting which deferred the decision, “I am surprised this site came forward, it’s very beautiful the best countryside surrounding the village”.

However there is a strong feeling from the District Council that they must and will find land for around ?100-plus new dwellings in our Parish. The current concentrated push by the developer with ambitions on Stoneypath Meadow provides our District Councillors with a ‘tempting’ easy solution to meet their targets.

TO GET DEVELOPMENT REJECTED ON THE MEADOW WE WILL NEED YOUR CONTINUED SUSTAINED SUPPORT AND REPEATED ACTION TO FIGHT THE COMPLEX PLANNING APPLICATIONS, THROUGHOUT BOTH APRIL AND MAY.

We were lucky enough to be invited to the Admiral J McHardy in Springfield 2 weeks ago.. Known amongst fellow Chelmsfordians for many years as the Almer, its new incarnation as the Admiral J McHardy is firstly a name rooted in Chelmsford history.

Captain John McHardy was Chelmsford's first Chief Constable appointed in 1840 and, our landlord tells us, prior to this had an active hand in suppressing the slave trade.
