Planning Applications (J. Denyer)

This will be the last presentation from John Denyer. Chair gave thanks to John for his work for the CHRA, and a request was made for anyone who could fill this vacancy.

High Road – application has been made for more houses at the rear of 203 High Road,

opposite the Doctors’ surgery. There have been 8 complaints, but these have been over -

ruled by the local authority, who have given the go-ahead for development.


· Ashton Gardens – proposed development of housing

Dear Resident,
I like to remind people in good time, so our next meeting will be on Thursday October 14th. This will be our first live meeting for some time. The meeting will start at 7.30 pm and the venue is the United Reformed Church hall, entrance in Beresford Avenue, just off Mill Lane, Chadwell Heath.
For this meeting, there will be no guest speaker, which will allow us to spend more time on local issues, and those issues that concern you. It is likely that the meeting will be shorter than usual. Because it is our first meeting back, will need to take your details at the door, so please be patient - I won't start the meeting until everyone is inside.
During this enforced shutdown, the Association has held nine zoom meetings, and they have been quite successful, with an average of 30 people logging in, which is far more than I expected.
My thanks as ever to the police and to our Councillors for their support and attendances during this difficult time.

With kind regards, Keith, on behalf of CHRA Committee.
