Hopes of building four new detached bungalows on agricultural land in Thorpe have been dashed.
Tendring District Council (TDC) has rejected the scheme put forward for land in Tendring Road by Thorpe Horseboxes Limited.
The site is outside the settlement development boundary and goes against the Council’s policies to preserve and enhance the countryside.
It was also not considered to be a sustainable development, is unnecessary with no public benefits which would make it an exceptional case.
Thorpe Parish Council did not comment on the proposal but TDC received one letter of objection and two others raising concerns.
