Parish Council complains about large scale housing development

At a recent meeting of Great Bentley Parish Council (GBPC) frustration was expressed by councillors about the seemingly unrestricted housing development in the Parish. It was agreed to write to Essex County Council (ECC), Tendring District Council (TDC) and Bernard Jenkin MP advising of the concern about vulnerability of Great Bentley to large scale housing development.
