Only a few months after residents met at Silver End Village Hall to hear about all the latest consultations on proposed major development in the area, an even larger one has been submitted to Braintree District Council as part of the Local Plan process, but too late for it to be consulted on. It is for up to 1800 houses on open countryside to the East of the village and would more than double the size of the existing village.
