Tiptree: 244-home plan backed
1:00pm Sunday 17th March 2013 in Local News
Plans to build 244 homes and a new factory in a village have been backed.
Wilkin & Sons wants to demolish its existing factory, in Factory Hill, Tiptree, in order to build 118 homes on the site.
The jam makers also want to build 126 homes on land to the north of the factory as well as building a new 133,000sq m factory near to Factory Hill.
Now parish councillors have backed the plans, but have warned the increased number of homes could lead to flooding at Layer Brook, near to where a new sewerage treatment plant would be built.
