Rochford District Core Strategy Announcement

On Tuesday 2nd November 2011, at the full Council Meeting of Rochford District Council at the Civic Suite in Rayleigh, Councillor Keith Hudson, Portfolio Holder for Planning & Transportation, got to his feet to make this momentous announcement.
“It has been a long time coming” - That was the first line of my speech to this Council on 9th September 2009 and how true those words have proven to be, but Chairman I am pleased to advise that the wait is over.
To quote Ms Laura Graham of the Planning Inspectorate “I find that the core strategy has complied with the legal requirements and is sound.”
