Public outcry over plans for new housing estate on outskirts of Halstead
9:00am Friday 20th June 2014 in News
Residents are up in arms over a proposal to put 300 new homes on what is currently arable farmland on the outskirts of Halstead.
On Tuesday, Gladman Developments formally requested a screening opinion from Braintree Council in connection with proposals for a new housing estate off Oak Road, south of the town.
Developers will ask councils for a screening opinion to find out whether they would need to pay for an environmental impact assessment to be carried out prior to the submission of a planning application.
But news of the proposal has sparked alarm for nearby residents.
