Councillors have thrown out plans from a developer looking to build 251 homes on a green belt site.
Rochford District Council’s development committee unanimously voted against the proposal made by Cogent Land who want to construct the properties on Coombes
Farm, just off Stambridge Road and Mill Lane, Rochford.
The committee refused the plans on the basis they feel it is an “inappropriate development for Green Belt land”.
In 2009, the developers first pitched the proposals for homes on the land under their previous guise of Colonnade with a plan for 326 properties.
