Halstead: Company faces setback in relocation bid
9:00am Tuesday 3rd September 2013 in News
A company could face frustration in its bid to return to Halstead after a council recommended its planning application to be refused.
Brands Direct, which is currently based in Felsted, wants to move into a unit in Kings Road, Halstead, previously occupied by Mellons DIY store.
Applicant Graham Kent wants to demolish part of the existing building to create a new unit and three two-bedroom cottages.
But Essex County Council has recommended the application is refused because of concerns about highway safety.
Food importer Brands Direct had been based in Greenstead Green from 1994 until about three years ago, when it moved to Felsted.
