TW Logistics first launched the legal battle in 2010.

Tendring’s planning portfolio holder Carlo Guglielmi, said: “We are very pleased that the courts have decided that this document does not infringe on or conflict with the Local Plan.

“We can now look forward to the Manningtree and Mistley Conservation Area Management Plan being used to help guide priorities for the area.”
