We fight glasshouse development across Essex footpath

We have opposed a massive glasshouse development across a public footpath, Nazeing footpath 10, in Essex.

The society has written to Epping Forest District Council’s planning officer, objecting to the application from Valley Grown Nurseries, Paynes Lane, Nazeing, to erect 87,119 square metres of glasshouses plus an ancillary warehouse.

We have pointed out that the development requires the diversion of Nazeing public footpath number 10, which is a direct route from Paynes Lane to St Leonards Road. Walkers’ use and enjoyment of this possibly-ancient route will be severely disrupted by the development.

Moreover, the land is within the Lee Valley Park, which is immensely popular for quiet recreation.
