Concerns raised over plans for flats in Earls Colne

Halstead Gazette: Concerns raised over plans for flats in Earls Colne Concerns raised over plans for flats in Earls Colne

Concerns have been raised about the loss of village amenities after plans for flats were submitted.

The applicants, Mr and Mrs Deckers, are proposing a change of use to Oxford House in Upper Holt Street, Earls Colne, from a bar and restaurant to two self-contained flats, along with associated work.

They also want to construct a two-storey property with associated works.

One objection has been lodged by Simon Ford, of Colchester Road, White Colne, who wrote: “The village can not afford less amenities it needs more!

“A restaurant, a pub, a shop even a car wash would add to the village not expensive flats to attract commuters from London who bring nothing to the village.”

The plans are currently open to consultation.
