A large nine bedroom property in Brightlingsea looks set to be sub-divided into two homes.

Graham Bell submitted plans to Tendring District Council (TDC) for the work to be carried out at Brightlingsea Hall in Church Road.

He intends to create one five bedroom home and a four bedroom home with only minor internal changes to the interior.

The property is set in extensive grounds and is in the town’s conservation area.

TDC approved the proposal with four conditions. It was supported by Brightlingsea Town Council and no objections were received from residents.
