Planning Application refused

Local report from Ron Straalen:

Just returned, with Jan and Dave Keep, from attending the Braintree Planning Meeting. Mr. Aldous (Colne and Stour Countryside Ass.) and David Lee (Chair of Bures Hamlet PC) both spoke well against the Gladman proposal for 98 new houses.
Wendy Scattergood also spoke against, and informed the meeting that Natural England had just announced Stage One Approval for the extension of the AONB to include Bures!!
Cllrs unanimously rejected the application!
An excellent outcome and thank you to David Lee and Jenny Wright for giving up their time to support our Community
