Progress to report on the provision of allotments in Hockley.
The building of the houses on the Folly Grove site in Hockley is progressing. The developers (Persimmonn Homes) have told us that they anticipate first occupancy in October. This triggers a timescale. Plans for the allotments have to be lodged with Rochford District Council by the time of the first occupancy, which means we should start to see something more solid regarding the developers’ proposals for the allotments very soon.
Naturally, we anticipate, ‘issues’ along the way but we’re keeping a very close eye on progress and will post when we have anything to report.
