Quite a number of people have been asking how Tory Councillor Angela Hale voted with regard to the housing in Hullbridge.
When this came up at the Full Council meeting in December and a vote was taken on the Core strategy, which provides for building 500 houses on the West side of Hullbridge from 2015, a recorded vote was taken, the minutes of which can be read here (page 5 shows the vote). At that vote it is recorded that Mrs A V Hale voted FOR the Core Strategy and therefore FOR the 500 houses planned for Hullbridge.
Both Michael and Diane Hoy voted AGAINST the Core Strategy and therefore AGAINST the 500 houses for Hullbridge.
We would just point out that no plans have gone forward or been proposed for Hullbridge yet, rumours are going around that the land is sold and the deal done and planning permission given, this is not true, no plans have been received by Rochford Council and no building can in any place take place before 2015 so we still have time to change the Core Strategy.
