Extra time has been given to complete a legal agreement over plans to build 25 new bungalows in Mistley.
Tendring District Council’s (TDC) Planning Committee agreed the application for the site to the south of Pound Corner in Harwich Road last year.
This was subject to legal terms being sorted out within six months for on-site Council housing or affordable housing; transfer of land for allotments and two new bus stops.
Negotiations have been taking place with the developer and are now almost finished.
TDC’s Head of Planning Cath Bicknell asked for an extension until September 30 to have everything completed.
The request was approved by TDC’s Planning Committee last night.
