Plans to build 200 homes on garden centre site rejected


A bid to build almost 200 homes at a garden centre site in Clacton, Essex, has been unanimously rejected by councillors.


The proposal to demolish St John's Plant Centre, in Earls Hall Drive, and build new homes was shelved by Tendring District Council's planning committee on Wednesday (February 12).


Members raised concerns about a number of issues including the character of the homes and access issues from St John's Road.


The existing nursery buildings and glasshouses would have been bulldozed and 24 apartments, 163 homes and eight mixed commercial/residential spaces created.


However, St Osyth Parish Council and angry residents opposed the development, and all nine district councillors voted to reject it.
