Planning Application: Saffron Walden (85), Gladman, Little Walden Road (UTT/15/2069/OP)


Application for development of up to 85 dwellings (including 40% affordable housing) on farm land on the north eastern edge of Saffron Walden on Little Walden Road. It is outside of the town’s ‘permitted development boundary’.

The application was first submitted in 2016 as application UTT/16/2210/OP and it was refused by the UDC Planning Committee. There were a number of concerns, including sustainability, traffic and pollution. The developer, Gladman, appealed the decision and submitted a second application to run in parallel to the appeal process.
