Two sites off Hoe Lane in Nazeing could house glasshouses

UK: New greenhouses to be built in the Lea Valley

Azeing Parish Council has “no objection in principle” for plans to build glasshouses on a currently derelict site in the village. However, councillors agreed that potential knock-on effects for traffic and Nazeing’s footpaths needs to be investigated before the plans get the green light. Proposals for Presdale Farm Nurseries and a site north of Birchfield Industrial Estate on Hoe Lane were discussed at a planning committee meeting on Thursday last week.

At the meeting, Cllr Mark Frydrych (Ind, Nazeingbury) said: “Mr Di Maria and Mr Filocco want to put greenhouses on it and bring it back to what it was designated for.” Cllr David Joslin (Ind, Bumbles Green) said: “I would propose that we’ve got no objection to the proposals. “It’s E13 [glasshouse area] land and there’s going to be traffic whatever it’s used for.

“We could just leave it derelict for ever because we think there might be a traffic problem.” However, council chairman Cllr Daphne Borton (Ind, Bumbles Green) said she was concerned about the potential of an increasing number of lorries using Hoe Lane. Her husband, Cllr Ed Borton (Ind, Nazeingbury), said he had worries about the impact on footpaths and the “type of people” who would work at the glasshouses. “I’m assuming they won’t be local residents, they’ll be people moving in from outside the village.”
