A tale of three planning applications.

There are two new planning application currently going through planning in Maldon which deserve publicising and careful consideration.

They are both for historic waterfront sites, and one shows scant regard for the history and aesthetics of the waterfront, while the other has every chance of making a small but significant contribution to it.

In the meantime R.J. Prior and Sons are appealing the rejection of their application for the Maltings site, which is every bit as insensitive as that for the Royal Burnham site.
