Three controversial homes plans are withdrawn

THREE controversial planning applications due to be discussed and debated by members of Thurrock Council’s planning committee this evening have been withdrawn by the applicants.

Councillors were to hear about plans for ten new houses on the site of two bungalows on Third Avenue, Stanford-le-Hope, a flats development at Bridge Court, Bridge Road, Grays and a plan for seven flats on the site of a detached house on Corringham Road, Stanford-le-Hope.

All three applications had courted local controversy, with lots of objections from residents and were being recommended for refusal.
