PLANS to build a dozen new homes in a village have been unveiled.

Regent Square Ltd is seeking full planning permission to build the new dwellings off London Road, Black Notley.

A mix of two, three and four bedroom properties are proposed for the site, which is located close to a Shell Petrol Station.

Each house would come with a designated bin storage area, while a total of 27 car parking spaces will be created.

In its planning statement, the developer points out the site is allocated for housing in the draft local plan and says the scheme has been designed with future developments in mind.

It also argues the scheme will be of high quality and is sympathetic to the surrounding area.

Braintree Council will have the final say on the plans.
