Stonepath Meadow Development

22nd November 2017

Local MP Priti Patel addressed a full church hall in Hatfield Peverel on Saturday to support a fundraising quiz in aid of the campaign to prevent development taking place on Stonepath Meadow. The quiz was organised by the Stone Path Meadow Residents Group who are opposing planning applications for 80 dwellings and 140 dwellings which will be considered at a hearing by a planning inspector next month. A further application for 120 dwellings at Gleneagles Way is also being considered. Priti said:

“The whole of Hatfield Peverel has come together to campaign to defend our green spaces from unacceptable over-development. It was wonderful to see the hall packed with people coming to the quiz to help raise funds. The local community is up against promoters and developers with deep pockets, but the case being put forward to oppose these applications is a strong one and I am continuing to support them.”

Priti praised the efforts of the team of residents who are leading the fight against these applications. Priti added:

“A fantastic team of residents have voluntarily put in many hours of hard work to oppose these applications. They have checked every word of every line of the case from the applicants and are fighting back with great intelligence and passion.”
