Cllr Geoff Wiliams, Frank Last of the Essex Badger Protection Group and Dr Rod Cole representing the Basildon Natural History Society and the Essex Wildlife Trust brought residents up to speed on the progress of the Nethermayne Site application and stressed the unique nature of the site from the natural history point of view. Dr Cole referred to the inadequacy of consultant reports of various surveys undertaken.
