Land can be used for lorry container storage yard

Monday, 9 October, 2017

A vacant piece of land in Thorpe can be used as a yard for lorry container storage, it has been decided.

A proposal was submitted for the site east of Rice Bridge Industrial Estate and it has been given the all-clear by Tendring District Council (TDC).

The scheme was supported by Thorpe Parish Council and there were no other comments received.

As part of the application there will be a security cabin and a 1.6metre high chain link fence and no vehicles will be parked at the location and there will be no external lighting.

A previous similar approval on the land - which is away from properties and close to the industrial estate - expired earlier this year.

There were no safety objections from Essex County Council as the highway authority which decided the plans are acceptable.
