I am very disappointed that 265 new homes have been given the green light to be built on this beautiful area of Bocking.

If 265 homes were not enough for this small village, another 575 are planned at Towerlands, Panfield Lane.

If these homes are built I wonder if the residents of Church Lane, Bocking, realise that they will be living sandwiched between two large housing developments.

Church Lane is a dangerous road.

Speeding traffic, including heavy industrial vehicles, noisy motorbikes and cars already present a problem.

There are no speed restriction signs, no police traffic controls and no traffic calming measures in this busy road.

More houses and more traffic will only make life more unbearable than it is at present.
