Following the Officer’s presentation Mr Steve Anstead, a Supporter and Mrs Carly Bell, the Applicant addressed the Committee.

 

A debate ensued where the planning merits of this application were noted together with the supporting comments from Essex County Council Highways Authority (ECC) that allayed previous concerns raised.
