Council objects to Screwfix plans
 
Plans to turn part of the Popplewells Coachworks site in High Road, Thornwood, into a Screwfix branch with a trade counter are being opposed by North Weald Bassett Parish Council.

Councillors voiced reservations over the proposals amid concerns about the amount of traffic the proposed use would generate.

The planning committee voted 3-3, with one abstention, on the application with committee chairman Baden Clegg using his casting vote to support objection to the plans.

He told Monday's meeting: "My only concern is if there is a fair amount of traffic in and out, it's a dodgy position."

Councillor Elaine Godwin-Brown was concerned at the estimated 40 vehicle movements in and out each day.

"The white van man, big vans and the amount of traffic in Thornwood High Road would be very much increased, and it's a dangerous road."
