Angry residents are worried road networks and village infrastructure will not be able to cope with eighty new homes.

Gladman Developments have launched a public consultation on their proposal for eighty new homes, a shop and ‘open space’ on land off Southminster Road, opposite Burnham Cemetery.

The land is currently used for fields.

Gladman Developments claim Maldon District Council are unable to identify sufficient housing sites in the district to meet their housing requirements.
