Epping Forest District Council has refused consent for a massive glasshouse development across a public footpath, Nazeing footpath 10, in Essex.
We were among the objectors to the planning application, from Valley Grown Nurseries, Paynes Lane, Nazeing, to erect 87,119 square metres of glasshouses plus an ancillary warehouse.
The development would have required Nazeing footpath 10 to be diverted from its direct route from Paynes Lane to St Leonards Road onto a much more circuitous path. The land is within the Lee Valley Park, a beautiful area which is immensely popular for quiet recreation.
