SAY NO NOW! To future flooding disasters in Holland-on-Sea! This relates to the proposed building development on farmland northwest of Sladbury’s Lane and the probable impact on the flooding of Picker’s Ditch (the stream that runs under the bridge adjacent to Holland Bowls Club). The background to this is that the original planning application to build 132 new houses on farmland was opposed by the HRA and was turned down by Tendring District Council’s Planning Committee. However the applicant appealed to the Planning Inspectorate who allowed the appeal and granted outline planning permission. A detailed planning application is now with TDC.
