Highwood Hospital - where a development of 205 homes is planned

Brentwood Council's Planning Committee heard Bellway Homes' application for 205 homes at the Highwood site on 7th September with Cllr Ross Carter, ward member for Brentwood North, taking the lead in putting forward residents' concerns about traffic impact, proximity to existing houses, effect on the Conservation Area, tree preservation, environmental issues and parking.

The Tories chose not to make a decision on the night and overruled the Liberal Democrat's substantive motion with all but one of them voting to defer the application to the next meeting. Bellway Homes will now be engaging in further discussions with officers to submit revised plans.

Cllr Ross Carter said:

"Your Liberal Democrat councillors will continue to put residents first, speak up for them and continue to keep fully involved in this application, doing what is right for those who elected us."

"We are still happy to hear from any residents who want to raise concerns with us."
