Plans for a controversial “WAG-style” development will be discussed at a meeting tonight.

Elliot Pomerance hopes to turn stables in Grove Lane, Chigwell, into six two-storey homes, but there is strong opposition from people living nearby.

The proposal will be considered by Chigwell Parish Council, which has received 17 objections, tonight.

The Grove Lane Residents’ Group claim the plans are too modern and out of keeping with the country lane.

Epping Forest District Council will have the final say on whether the development goes ahead.
The meeting starts at 7.30pm at the parish council’s Hainault Road offices.

A proposal to develop the site in 2003 was blocked following opposition.

If the Winston Churchill development saga is anything to go by what the residents want wont make one iota of difference.

Country lane? I am sure the planning committee will manage to reason that a block of flats would fit in nicely.

the winston churchill has long been a dire place and even in its pomp ( if ever ) it was only ever a magnet for the areas dubious creatures, and the fact that no-one can make a go of it a a public house only cements the facts that its ripe for development. . this paper ran several stories when ex landlords were evicted as they couldnt pay the rent or make a go of the pub. the area desperately needs housing, whether its 2m pound homes of retirement flats, its simply a fact
