A scheme to turn a redundant agricultural barn into a home has been given the green light.

The Johnson Family Trust submitted plans for the site on Lower Farm, Lower Farm Lane, Brightlingsea, to Tendring District Council.

Planning officers have approved the proposal under their delegated powers.

However, no development on the land can take place until samples of various materials such as external facing, roofing and windows have been submitted for approval.

A certain amount of landscaping and planting must also be carried out during the first planting season or as arranged with the Council.

The developer also needs to agree a programme of archaeological work at the site to allow proper investigation and recording of the site which is potentially of significance.
