A workshop used for repairing horseboxes and trailers in Thorpe is set to be demolished to make way for four new houses.
Thorpe Horseboxes of Tendring Road has successfully applied for planning permission for the scheme.
It renews a consent granted in 2013 and there was no objection to the proposal from the parish council or any residents.
Tendring District Council (TDC) decided the plans represent a sustainable development.
The company told the Council that its aim is consolidate its operation on one site at Thorpe Green Equestrian Centre in Colchester Road which is also used for repairs, without any loss of jobs.
