A resubmitted scheme for 14 homes on agricultural land in Ramsey has been given the green light.
Stanfords are looking to build the properties on the site at Michaelstowe Farm which is currently used for cropping hay.
It includes a number of farm buildings in various states of repair, including a small traditional barn, cart lodge, store and byre.
The proposal involves 11 houses and three bungalows and follows an application made to Tendring District Council (TDC) in May last year.
The Council has been advised those plans are subject to a non-determination appeal although nothing has yet been received.
TDC’s Planning Committee agreed the latest outline application on Wednesday and further details – such as scale, design, layout and landscaping – will need to be agreed at a later date.
It was felt the scheme is a logical small development on the edge of one of the District’s main urban areas.
It was approved subject to securing a public open space contribution and meeting a list of 13 conditions.
There was no objection from Ramsey and Parkeston Parish Council and only one letter of observation was received.
