This Planning Application was considered at the Council Meeting on 13th August 2018 where the following comments were made: -

Councillor Munday proposed that Council has no objections to this application but asked that provision must be made for parking spaces. Proposal was seconded by Councillor Gronland and carried by unanimous vote

An email was received from the Planning Officer at Braintree District Council on Friday 19th October stating that the site is located in the centre of Halstead on Halstead High Street, and although ordinarily we would require a parking provision for all flats, it is considered that due to its location on this occasion for the conversion of the upper floors of this property into two bedroom apartments in the centre of town it is believed that it would be unnecessary to require parking for these properties.
