Developers considering their options for new homes
1:00pm Thursday 3rd July 2014 in News
Developers are considering their options after their plans to replace a warehouse with 48 houses was refused.
Bellway Homes had submitted its plans for Bridge House in Hall Road, Heybridge, to Maldon District Council on November 1 but councillors only made a decision on June 20.
It had hoped to build 14 affordable homes and 34 two or three-bedroom family houses.
But councillors said an employment site would be lost, the new houses would lead to “unacceptable over-development of the site” and the area is at high flood risk.
