We recently posted a notice about a screening opinion requested from BDC on land at Cranes Lane. We can now confirm that BDC has received and validated an application for outline planning permission from Melville Dunbar Associates acting for B in the Middle (Kelvedon) Ltd. The application form also names the owners of the land as Mr and Mrs Scott, so although they may not be the applicants, they are aware of the application.
You can view all documents related to this application on the BDC planning portal, including site plans. One of these shows how the new proposal sits alongside the proposed development for London Road. The BDC Planning Committee has not yet determined the London Road outline planning application, so it is still pending.
The Cranes Lane application, reference 17/01979/OUT, includes 2,000 m sq of business space along London Rd. It runs from Cranes Lane almost opposite the existing business park, mirroring that of the first London Road outline proposals. The plans show the proposed 125 homes in two areas, which sit behind this business space. 75 of these are normal residential properties of unspecified sizes; 25 are social housing and a further 25 intermediate housing.
If you would like to view details of the application please click the link below. The public can comment on this application until 8 January 2018. Kelvedon Parish Council Planning Committee will consider its response to the application at its scheduled meeting on 18 December. KPC will publish the agenda for this meeting on its website next week so members of the public can see the precise time of the meeting.
