PLANS to build four new homes have been given the final go ahead in Great Oakley.

Tendring Council approved outline plans for Rose Builders for the site at Red Barn Farm, in Red Barn Lane, last year.

The proposal involves demolishing a number of existing barns and outbuildings and replacing them with the four three-bedroom properties, a detached garage and two parking spaces each.

Now Tendring Council has agreed to the final details concerning design, layout, landscaping and access arrangements.

These all proved acceptable and a condition has been made to provide replacement roosts for any bats found on the site.
