New Application for Houses and Public Car Park on Warren Farm Land (click here for fully formatted version)

Application 18/00958/OUT:  This application was made in June 2018 and resulted in numerous objections as well as a few supporting comments.  TDC notified previous objectors on 9th March 2019 that a revised application had been received and details were posted on their website and available for comment.  Briefly, a new plan was appended to the original application showing the housing moved behind the car park on the field to the left of the lane when walking towards the Mill Pond.  This occupied most of that field down to the farm buildings. However, after two days, the application (original one and the amendment) completely disappeared.  When asked about this, the planning department of TDC said this was because it was “invalid for the fee“.  However, that does not explain why the original application, together with all documents and comments is no longer displayed! Watch this...

Fun Wine Tasting Quiz and Ploughmans Supper – Saturday 15th September (click here for formatted version)

This is a light hearted FUN Wine Tasting Quiz with emphasis on the FUN.  You need no detailed knowledge of wine – just a general interest and good taste buds.  Teams of up to six people will taste and then answer simple multiple choice questions on a range of anonymous wines.  Whether each mouthful is expelled or not is entirely up to the participants but be warned, if you don’t then you will definitely not be able to drive home! It will certainly be a fun evening. The cost is £8.50 per person which includes tasting six wines and a substantial Ploughman’s Supper.  Free tea and coffee will be available and there will be a raffle.  If anyone would like to donate items for the raffle, please leave with Helen at 39 Mill Street or bring it on the night.  Tickets are available from St Osyth Butchers, L & K Funeral Directors or Scott Sheen & Partners, Estate Agents all in the village centre  or you can leave a message on 01255 820 344 or 0125 820 533.  Entry at the door will be possible if space allows but we ask you to book well in advance so we can arrange sufficient supplies. The quiz will start promptly at 7.30 on Saturday 15th September in the village hall.  See posters in local shops for more details. This event is not suitable for under 18 year olds  ...

SOS Objection to Warren Farm Proposals (click here to see formatted version)

SAVE OUR ST.OSYTH – (S.O.S)        www.saveourstosyth.com …because our village matters 17th July 2018  Chief Planning Officer Planning Services Tendring District Council Council Offices Tendring Essex CO16 9AJ   Dear Mrs Bicknell,  Planning Applications 18/00958/OUT and 18/00959/FUL – Warren Farm, St Osyth. We wish to register objections to both these planning applications and make the following comments which we ask you to take into consideration when determining the applications. The proposal for both houses and car park lie outside the settlement development boundaries (village envelope) as shown in the ‘Tendring District Local Plan 2013-2033 and Beyond’. The claim in Paragraph 8.1 of the D&A statement to the contrary is therefore factually incorrect. The Local Plan does not identify this site for housing development and there is no overriding reason why it should be made an exception. TDC can prove a housing land supply in excess of 5 years as of April 2018 as stated by the inspector in his recent decision following the public inquiry into City & Country’s appeal into TDC’s refusal of planning permission for housing in Great Bentley. The statement in paragraph 8.2 of the D&A statement to the contrary is also factually incorrect.  This negates any claim that normal planning policies can be set aside in favour of ‘sustainable development’. No evidence has been provided of the need for a public car park. There is no major shopping centre in the village. There are spaces near to the village shops in Clacton Road and Spring Road which are mostly used for ‘pop in shopping’.  The public houses have their own parking facilities and there are...
