PLANS to build a 455-home mini-village in Thundersley are set to be thrown out after more than 800 objections were received.
This Land Development Ltd have submitted plans to build the homes, as well as a community hall, on land east of Rayleigh Road, but planning officers have recommended that councillors vote against the plans.
The council officers have raised concerns over a potential loss of green belt land, while residents have also objected over the impact on wildlife that the development might have.
If the new plans are approved, homes will be split into four development “parcels”.
The plans include an outdoor play area, a fishing lake, space for relaxing and play, as well as multiple areas of woodland for walking and informal play.
In the vision, developers they state: “This new neighbourhood will offer welcoming places for people to come together and connect, as well as space for nature to thrive.”
The plans also feature proposal for a “healthcare facility”, and “stand-alone early years and childcare nursery”.
Castle Point Council will decide the final outcome at a planning meeting.
