The final details of a scheme to develop four new houses on land at a farm in Bradfield have been given the all-clear.
The site at Heath Farm in Windmill Road is currently paddock area and Tendring District Council (TDC) granted outline planning permission to Granville Developments last year.
The land is outside the settlement development boundary of the village and the proposal was opposed by Bradfield Parish Council.
With the principle already accepted TDC had to decide whether to approve the details such as design and scale, landscaping, access and private amenity space.
It decided the layout of the development is spacious and each property will be served with ample parking and amenity space.
The access was agreed by Essex County Council as the highway authority.
