Town council objects to retirement apartments
 
Amended plans for a development of 28 retirement apartments on Stonards Hill, Epping, are being opposed - once again - by Epping Town Council.

A previous scheme was rejected by Epping Forest District Council and dismissed on appeal.

Tuesday's town council planning and general purposes committee was told the revised three-storey building - on the site of the three houses at 1-5 Stonards Hill -  has been designed to mirror nearby Redgrove House.

Churchill Retirement Living wants to build 28 apartments for older people with a guest apartment and communal facilities.

The plans also detail two accesses, 15 parking spaces and landscaping.

Town clerk Beverley Rumsey said the new design was set further back from the road.

Councillor Barbara Scruton said: "It's opposite beautiful Georgian houses. They may have addressed some of the issues but I still think parking, bulk and the street scene is still an issue. So is the traffic."

Councillor Michael Wright said: "Fifteen parking spaces is not enough. They will park in the road which is not very good as it stands.

"The houses they are pulling down are substantial detached houses. It's not going to enhance the road."

The committee voted to object on the grounds of traffic and highway safety, parking issues, the bulk of the proposed building and the loss of amenity for neighbours.
