Reason for comment:

✓Makes observations on the application – Members agreed to call in this application and make the following comments

  • Within this property is an existing Shepherds Hut.
  • Members are led to believe that Marsh Farm House and Marsh Farm Cottage are listed Grade 2.
  • Parts of the house were not on the original plan (utility room), and members are led to believe that these have been built without planning permission.
  • It is one of very few Black Essex Boarded cottages in existence.
  • Building work has already started on the proposed Cartlodge.
  • ECC have already noted the access, and we wish to reinforce their comments that heavy lorries will have difficulty using the access road – even the refuse lorries no longer use this road.
  • The utility room that has already been built is right on the boarder of the house next door, and the plan seems to encroach on a public foot path.
  • It will be a modern building out of character with the surrounding area.
