UPDATE: Planning Application for Land to the South of Braintree Road

July 1st UPDATE: the planning application was considered at the Uttlesford Planing meeting held on 29th June and was refused.

Cllr Chris Woodhouse spoke at the meeting on behalf of the council, proposing refusal.

We understand that there were a number of grounds on which the application was refused, not least of which was the number of objections received from residents.


May 26th UPDATE: the planning application will NOT now be considered on 1st June. We believe it will now be considered at the meeting on 29th June. However, we understand that the site visit will likely still go ahead on the morning of the 1st June.
