Whitehouse Farm,
Whitehouse Lane,
West Bergholt,
Change of use of outbuilding to single dwelling house. (Revised description) 162249 Object Decision  

The Parish Council reiterate the comments which it made previously in regards to the earlier application 151364: “The property is clearly outside the village envelope. The Parish Council fully supports CBC policy that there should be no additional dwellings outside the village envelope”. The Parish Council believe this is still inline with the current CBC policy and it’s previous decision. The proposal is also against the emerging Neighbourhood Plan.
