Planning Control

  1. I have received notification the Secretary of State is now involved in the planning refusal & can overturn Havering refusal of the Travel Lodge application. What more can we do to prevent this 82 roomed hotel in Upminster High St.

  2. It will cause traffic congestion and a unsafe environment for children going to school also will affect the buses

  3. I still stand by my original opinion that it is totally the wrong place to put a hotel, with 3 schools close by, all the congestion we get at that junction. To my mind it’s just asking for more trouble.
