Tendring housing plans up for public discussion

People living in north-east Essex are being given a second chance to air their views on the future development of housing in the area.

Residents in Tendring will be asked by the district council to give their views on the number, location and types of housing needed in the district.

The consultation follows local concerns being raised after proposals were published by the authority last year.

The first of four public exhibitions is being held in Clacton on Tuesday.

Last October Tendring District Council revealed its plans to meet the government's target for more than 6,000 new homes in the area over the next 20 years.

Conservative council leader, Neil Stock said: "We have listened and taken notice and therefore we are giving people another chance to have their say."

There will be further exhibitions in Jaywick, Weeley and Holland-on-Sea during October.
