A new parking area is to be created out of a piece of grassland for residents in Brightlingsea.

The proposal, which has been given the all-clear by Tendring District Council (TDC), will provide eight spaces with landscaping for people living in Beriffe Place.

The application was made by the Council as the owner of the land and planners decided it will not result in any material harm to visual or residential amenity, or highway safety.

Brightlingsea Town Council supported the scheme and TDC received one letter of objection.
