Braintree: Dad up in arms over homes plan
3:00pm Monday 7th October 2013 in News
A father is determined to fight a housing association’s plans to convert another block of garages into houses.
Greenfields Community Housing wants to demolish 24 garages in Bailey Bridge Road, Braintree, and build two two-bedroom affordable homes.
Braintree Council planning officers have recommended the plans are approved, but Keith Buchanan, whose home sits next to the site, insists it is not suitable.
Mr Buchanan, 36, who lives with his partner and baby daughter, claims the houses will not be in-fitting with the area, will be unnecessarily intrusive and construction traffic will cause congestion.
A decision is set to be made at a Braintree Council planning committee meeting tomorrow.
