14 Flats For Ferry Road? And ?140,000 for County Highways?

There’s been a planning application at 289 Ferry Road Hullbridge, to demolish a chalet and build 14 flats. The application number is 07/00085/FUL.

An application for 16 flats was refused on appeal before although the Inspector said that redevelopment with flats would be appropriate here.

County Highways make no objection but ask for ?140,000 towards ‘the betterment of the transportation system’ ! Our planning officers are not supporting making the applicants pay this.

Officers are recommending approval of the overall scheme and it will be passed automatically at 1 pm next Tuesday unless any councillor ‘calls it in’.
