Plans to convert a former water tower at a crematorium into a house have been re-submitted.

James Melia, 48, of Chappel, wants to extend an existing water tower at Three Counties Crematorium, in Halstead Road, High Garrett, to create a three-bedroom house.

The applicant has submitted a new application after a previous attempt was rejected by Braintree Council.

The water tower has not been used for its original purpose for 50 years, and currently houses telecommunications equipment.
