Over 100 Great Baddow residents attended a meeting held at Sandon School to discuss the future of Marrable House at the Vineyards, Great Baddow.
Rubicon West, owners of the Vineyards, put forward their revised proposals via a slide presentation (their original proposals were rejected by the Chelmsford Borough Council planning commitee in 2010).
These include a rebuild on the Marrable House site and a new building parallel to Maldon Road. The new proposals have reduced the scale and height of the original plan and set the building back from the road - thus saving the trees.
In the discussion that followed, serious concerns and objections were again raised about the project. Most residents who attended would like to see the redevelopment of Marrable House in a suitable style in keeping with the village and no new building in Maldon Road.
