Ardleigh Matters

Meeting for those opposed to the new offices planned for Ardleigh reservoir

Last night we held a meeting for those opposed to the new offices planned for Ardleigh reservoir, it was very well attended, so thank you to everyone, further valuable points and actions were identified. Please be aware, that this action is not just about some ugly portacabins being sited a long way from our homes, unless you live next door of course, there will be a massive traffic (of all sizes) impact, we are talking about hundreds of extra cars a day going in and out of this site 24 hours a day, without sufficient parking. There will be light and noise pollution! And this is just related to the new proposed building, and does not include traffic related to additional infra structure works planned also.
There is already building of new houses going on in our village, because they meet with required standards, and are on genuine brown field areas, these proceed unopposed in most cases, as change must take place. So we should not feel bad about opposing those who seek to destroy our village and surrounding areas. Spread the word!
