    Readers’ letters: Contempt over more homes in Rochford

    I read the report ‘Rochford can’t cope with 7,500 homes’ on page 4 of Thursday’s edition of the Echo and, for the first time ever, felt I had to write in response.

    It does not surprise me that councillor Sperring is so dismissive of the responses of the electorate when he says ‘I am sure we will hear the usual views…’ as many of us are aware that some of those who purport to represent us on Rochford Council view our comments with disdain, or perhaps more accurately, with contempt!

    Perhaps he would explain why he is so contemptuous of how a significant proportion of us feel.

    Does he consider that our roads, doctors, hospitals and schools etc are all perfectly capable of dealing with the increase in population that Rochford is planning?

    Or is he so gullible that he is taken in by the facile attempts to ameliorate these issues put forward by the planning officers when pushing these applications through?

    However, what really surprised me was that he was happy for these comments to be published in the Echo, now, in my opinion, that really does show contempt!

    Perhaps the electorate of Rochford would do well to remember this when voting in the next round of elections.
